With traffic density many times greater than on ksser roads, and with materially higher speeds, the rate of fatalities and the rate of accidents are amazingly n duced. It's a modern miracle. This isn't to minimize the importance of education and enforcement. They are imperitives in any effective safety program. The "p-int is that they —and especially education—are long-term programs, whereas adequate roads can be had al- mos! overnight. they aren't as costly in the long run as poor roads.

In wartime it is necessary to discourage un- ncet s-ary travel, in order to free facilities for military purposes, and to put emergency revenue measures into force. Thus, in World War I a temporary travel tax was imposed. It was re-' pealed, as expected, shortly after that war's end. A passenger travel tax applying to the users of for-hire air, bus. rail and water carriers, also was passed early in World War II. But its subsequent history lias been very different than that of its World War I predecessor. Though it was supposed to be temporary, it's still on the books. And the carriers, let it be emphasized, don 't pay it. They simpiy collect it. The whole bill is paid by passengers. Legislation is now pending in Congress to repeal this levy, which amounts to 10 per cent, on fares. And that gives special interest to factual memorandum on the subject prepared by the National Conference for Repeal of Taxes on Transportation. Actually, the tax has come close to repeal in the past—the Senate voted in favcr 50 to 35 in 1958. But on that, as on other occasions, House economy was near collapse and its social traditions had been overturned. not take into account the effect that repeal of the The picture was more cheerful travel tax would have in stimulating the use of in tne north, where Harriet B. the public carriers, with subsequent increases in Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's their revenues and taxable net incomes.

These families are Parity feeding habits. A 20-pound female will lay around 2 million eggs a season, which practically insures the species for all time. But It Is the way he feeds that really causes trouble —• rooting up the bottoms of lakes and rivers in his constant hunt for doggone near anything that will fit into the vacuum cleaner that passes for his mouth. SURVEY SHOWS A few years ago a survey of 25 commercial fishermen who plied their trade on the Missouri River asked what was their favorite fish, strictly for eating qualities. To a man the answer was carp! "But what about the bones ?" they were asked. "Don't carp have almost more bones than meat?" "Sure," was the reply, "But If you skin them and score them before cooking they taste better than any other fish, and the bones cook up to nothing." The secret of making, carp pleasant on the plate is in the preparation, which begins when tho critter comes from clean water. It should be skinned, not scaled, fishing authorities of the Mercury outboard company advise, which removes a great deal of the "muddy" flavor that is inherent in carp. Secondly it should toe "scored," a process which consists of slicing the meat to the bone before cooking, in slices as close as pages in a book, if possible'. Then when it Is cooked (usually deep fried) the bones disappear. GIVE HIM A TRY Catching him takes soma •guile, too, with light lines and long leaders very necessary to lure him' into accepting the bits of corn or doughy balls that are impaled on the hook. Once on the line a carp will give no quarter, slugging and pounding away like the true heavyweight that he is. No Fancy Dan, he does his fighting at the very bottom of the Jake or river. But caught on light lines, Bkinned, scored and cooked in deep fat, a carp is far from the "sewer trout" that he is sometimes called. The Mercury outboard people suggest you give him a try before you knock him. Here's one way, taken from "Cy Llttlebee's Guide to Cooking Fish and Game," by Werner Nagle of the Missouri Conser* vatlon Commission: "Skin carp and cut into 2- lnch pieces. Sprlnklo with salt and. pepper and place in oiled earthenware baking dish. Cover with a generous handful of whole, mixed spices.
