Point of No Escape Before every traffic mishap there is a moment when the accident becomes unavoidable ... the moment when the marked victims may become aware of impending danger— too late to do anything about it. ' To police and safety experts who study the'causes of highway and street slaughter this is known as "The Point of No Escape." *• * * For motorist A it was a day of sunshine and fishing, grass stains on trousers and hot dogs roasted over charcoal. A beautiful summer holiday. Next year, he tells himself, he'll remember not to drive so far from home for the picnic. Now it is almost 6 p.m. and the roads are crowded with other homeward-bound mefry- makers. The - kids are asleep on the back Seat, exhausted after a day of frolicking. Mom rests her weary head on the back of the front seat. Motorist A opens the vent window fully and finds the slightly cool breeze relaxing. * * • There's a heavy date ahead for Motorist B this holiday evening. He's tired after the all-afternoon ballgame. The fellows from the shop sure showed up the gang from the front office. Now it is almost 6 p.m. His girl friend expects him to pick her up at 7:30, and she's the type who doesn't have to wait for anybody. Motorist B has to shower and shave, and it's a good 20- minute ride to her house. C'mon traffic, let's get moving. * # * At exactly 6:05 p.m. Motorist A and Motorist B are both within 150 feet of the fntersection, one coming from the east, the other from the south. They can't see each other because of the building at the corner. If there is a stop sign or a traffic light, it will be ignored, because Motorist A is day-dreaming and Motorist B is thinking about his date. Both are driving a little too fast for road conditions. • Then each glimpses the other—but they have reached "The Point of No Escape." S iere is a screeching of brakes and two children are ed violently toward the front of the car. Metal meshes with metal. Two cars overturn, mangling five humans. For them there may never be another date, another picnic. * * * This year's Fourth of July provides for many another "long" weekend. It's a time that can be filled with fun and excitement. Police hope that all those enjoying the holiday will make special efforts to steer clear of "The Point of. No Escape." Supreme Court Likely to Throw Out Any Law Locking FBI's Files By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON UP - There's a good chance the Supreme Court- judging from what it has already said—will throw out any law Congress passes now to keep a defendant on trial from seeing FBI files pertaining to his case. The court—ruling in the case of Clinton E. Jencks in June—said "justice requires no less" than that a defendant see the files if they contain information bearing on the testimony of a witness against him. The FBI and the Justice Department were so upset by this decision that. Congress is rushing through a bill to tone down the effect of what the court did. What Happened Time* Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 3, 1957 help the defendant, or discredit the witness, he could let that part Of the FBI file become part of the evidence and therefore open to the defendant. Jencks" lawyers asked the trial judge to do that. He refused. Jencks was found guilty and appealed to the Supreme Court. The court threw out his conviction. The ruling it gave is what upset the FBI and Justice Department. The court said a defendant—not the judge—had a right to the first look at the FBI files. The court, ~.- — ...v. didn't say the defendant had a \ reverse itself on this point hunting license to roam at will for the first time to say it in law instead of depending on tradition —Congress is considering a bill which says: Any looking through FBI files will be done by the trial judge, not by the defendant.

Mrs. Albert Jannsen returned Editorial— 1776-1957 - Struggle For Liberty Is an Unending One Things have turned upside'down since the Declaration of Independence was signed 181 years ago. The current position of the United States could never have been forecast by those who signed their Barnes at the bottom of that deathless document. * America was the youngest nation then. Ghana, in Africa, is BOW. America was one of the weakest nations. It is the strongest BOW. England and France were the world leaders then. The responsibility for the peace and welfare of the world has been thrust upon us in the last few years. Perhaps, upon re-reading the Declaration in the light of our recent experiences as a nation, we may see the England of 181 years ego in a slightly clearer light. And as the words are scanned, there may arise certain sympathies for that great mother nation juggling — and fumbling — some of the responsibilities which we know only too, well today. There are haunting phrases in the Declaration— The colonists complained that the king "has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without consent of our legislatures." They said the king was wrong in "protecting them (his soldiers) by a mock trial from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants * of these states." They said the king had "plundered our seas, ravished our coasts, burnt our towns . . ." The king was accused by the Daily Times Herald Dally Except Sundays and Holiday* By The Herald Publishing Company 105 West Fifth Street Carroll, Iowa JAMES W. WILSON, Publisher HOWARD B.

They complained of attempts "to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us." The propaganda of our present- day antagonist makes these bitter accusations sound mild. Occupation forces in foreign lands .. the Girard case . . . Asiatic complaints about our H-bomb tests . . . loud acrimony from the Middle East. If you were to swallew the Reds' propaganda pills whole, you might think our foreign policies as reprehensible as King George's. , While the English soldiers in Boston had to face the taunt of "Lobster-back" from the small fry there, our own troops must ignore the chalked "Yankee, go home" which adorns walls in foreign lands where they patrol. Doubtless there are many among us who wish our position was a simple one which could be solved by a new Declaration of Independence — a declaration to the world that we are tired of trying to help and paying the bill and being told to go home. But we cannot. Our • good will and moral principles are the mortar which holds the world together. Benighted .England, at the time of the American Revolution, may have been greedy for power ajid profit. Let the historians argue this. But we are interested only in the welfare of free men and our own self-existence. Our only stake in world affairs is represented in the holiday we celebrate today — in memory of a great step toward a more equitable life taken by mankind in the foundation of this republic. The struggle for liberty is an unending one. It goes on hour by hour and day by day, endlessly. We cannot turn our backs on our. world duties. We cannot let down those nations which have at least a measure of freedom and the citizens of those others who look pleadingly in our direction. Despite the confusion of propaganda, our real friends in foreign lands recognize our contribution and express it plainly. , As the New Chronicle iff London warned: "Anything that encourages the United States to withdraw into 'Fortress America' is. bad for the free world," v - 'tifiMtL ^L . t . 7Ae/Pja6cieJht&tt •If You're in Doubt, Don't I Keep It Secret from Child By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE Mrs. W. is working to help her husband pay for their home. Recently she asked her 10-year- old son to turn down the volume on the TV. He said, "Make me." She said, "Don't talk to me so fresh." He retorted, "Why shouldn't I? You're nothing but a cashier in a restaurant." She writes, "1 gave him a good licking. But it hasn't changed anything. He's still as fresh as he can be to me . . ." He disapproves of you, Mrs. W. Why does this trouble you? Why, when he gave you his low opinion of your job, did you shove it away so violently by spanking him? Do you yourself doubt its value? Do you have a sneaky feeling that you're cheating your children by working in this restaurant instead of at home? • I think so. If we feel strong approval of a decision to work outside our home, we don't need children's approval. Attacked as you've been, we'd simply say, "When you want to tell me why you hate my job so much, let me know — and we'll try to straighten it out. In the meantime, please switch off the j TV or turn down that volume." j But if we're struggling with se- i cret doubt of our job's value, a j child's disparagement of it is more than we can stand. We'll shove it away, with blows or furious words. , We want the doubt left secret- i We've made the hard decision to I work as a restaurant cashier — and don't want to reconsider our own gnawing doubts of its wisdom. It's terribly relieving to confess them to ourselves. In your case, Mrs. W., it may be relieving to also confess them to your son. For example, you might say, "I've been thinking of how you despise my work. I'm not certain it's important myself. I want to help Daddy pay for this house—but staying at home with you may be much more important. Why do you think it is?" It's silly to pose as a perfectly certain person to a child when we aren't. The pose gives us a don't- touch-me. unnatural stiffness that seals our real doubtful self away from him. It's this that makes him "fresh" and impudent. It's his demand for honesty between us. Thoughts And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? — Matthew 7:3. None, none descends into himself, to find The secret imperfections of his mind: But every one is eagle-ey'd to see Another's faults, and his de- formity.—Jo*hn Dryderi. If Hubby Runs You Down, Pay Him Bock in Same Coin One of the meanest tricks a husband can pull is to try to make his wife feel inferior and to sell the world the idea that she isn't very bright. : Some men achieve this effect by victimizing their wives with their so-called humor, If their wives resent being made fun of, they are told they just don't have a sense of humor. Other husbands tear down their wives by carping criticism. The wife.of such a man writes: "This may sound silly, but my husband makes me miserable because he is always telling me how stupid and dumb I am, particularly when we are around his relatives. Is there any way I can get him to stop?" First of all, stop squirming when he sets out to make you squirm, Don't try to explain or justify Reverse Procedure But the next time he tries to make you look stupid before his family or your friends, just look him in the eye and say, "Speaking of being stupid, let me tell you about the stunt George pulled the other day." Then recount word for word the latest dumb trick your husband has pulled. You'll be able to think of one because everybody does stupid things at times. When the evening is over ask your husband if he wants to go on talking about how dumb you are and let you low-rate him in return. Or would he rather give you a build-up and let you talk about how smart he is? The man who likes to make others feel small and stupid can't bear to be made to feel that way himself. That's your salvation. Don't hesitate to give what you ..A....Ait u • •• • !."';«•! . ,*r "w« * «WUU»MI LU give wnui you yourself when he finds fault with get.

The National Coal Assn., which once predicted 1957 would see 522 million tons I mined, compared with 506 million jin 1956, has trimmed this estimate to 506 million tons. Coal miners will also be taking their annual vacation, cutting the month's total output to a minimum. The traditional summer holiday starts this week in the textile industry. Many a mill owner will welcome the chance to cut back stocks and let consumer demand catch up with production. Many textile men, however, are saying they look for a pickup in their business by next month at the latest.
