Dingy Car Might Be Saved With Nick-of-Time Testing By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) - A survey of motorists in Great Britain shows that drivers who polish their automobiles are less likely to have accidents than those slovenly blokes who tool around in unsightly, dingy vehicles. The Lighter Side Some 8,000 miles of new roads —enough to girdle the nation- are added annually to the United States highway system. READ THE WANT, ADS!

The safety agency has ordered the U.. S. auto industry to install air bags in 1976 models to protect the occupants during collisions. But there are indications the deadline may be extended. If so, the agency possibly could achieve the same results by setting up federal minimum polishing standards for cars. Getting and keeping unshiny vehicles off the road should substantially reduce the traffic death toll. The British survey appears to corroborate the school of psychologists who hold that many motorists are in love with their cars and that polishing is a form of caress. A motorist who has spent 20 or 30 minutes affectionately stroking his beloved sedan obviously is going to be pretty cautious when he gets behind the wheel, lest he run into something smudgy. District 225 Presumably, this also is true of shoe polishers. Show me a chap with well-shined shoes and Ml show you a guy who's head over heels in love with his brogans. And also a fellow who's going o be pretty careful about what he kicks. In Public Interest Contrariwise, it may be assumed that a non-polisher's' relationship with his automobile is strictly platonic. A driver who isn't emotional- y involved isn't concerned about preserving the car's glossy exterior. He's probably got his mind on some member of the opposite sex. And the next thing you know —crash! He's embracing a telephone pole. Clearly, federal polishing standards would be in the public interest. This would force motorists who don't personally caress their cars to take the vehicles to a neighborhood massage parlor.

(UPI) FBI agents Monday night found 50 pounds of dynamite in the home of Jesse Stephens, an extremist rightwing leader who died last week, The widow of Stephens, an official of the Minuteman organization, called the FBI to ask agents to search the house for her own safety and that of the neighborhood, fire prevention chief M. H. Estepp said. Fire department officials said the FBI agents found 50 pounds of "very unstable" gel-x dynamite. It was taken to a landfill and burned without incident. When the dynamite was found, residents of the block around the Stephens house in this Washington suburb were evacuated for 3Va hours. RENO, Nev. (UPI) - A University . of Nevada-Reno researcher is living with a band of sheep to determine if stockmen's claims of losses to coyotes and other predators are justified, . Eat lamb, 10,000 coyotes can't be wrong," has become a popular' bumper sticker in sheep country since the government banned the use of poisons for predator control on federal lands. Kent McAdoo, a graduate student, is spending a year with the Elko County flock of Jess Goicoechea. He checks the herd each day at sunrise and in the evening for sheep losses. If the sheep were killed by predators, he attempts to determine which type. He also conducts autopsies to attribute death to poison plants, disease or other causes. Dr. Donald Klebenow, professor of wildlife management at the school, said the study will help determine the actual impact of the coyote and other predators on domestic animals and other rangeland prey. "Past information on sheep and other losses to predators has been questioned since it primarily was accumulated by livestock men or predator control people," Klebenow said. Deadline Is Near For Truck Plates SPRINGFIELD - Owners of trucks and other second division vehicles licensed on a fiscal year basis have two weeks to display new license plates, Secretary of State Michael J. Howlett said today. Deadline for displaying plates is June 30.

Plates may be purchased in the Centennial Building in Springfield or at 5301 W. Lexington St., 5401 N. Elston Ave. or 9901 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. in Chicago.
