It's Against Law Don't Drive with Park Lights Only SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) —Don't drive your car with only the parking lights turned on — it is now a violation of the law, Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier today warned motorists. As a result of an amendment to the Uniform Act Regulating Laryngectomy State Center To Be Opened SPRINGFIELD, 111. — Spec Traffic on Highways enacted by ial — a laryngectomy center, the 1963 session of the General I new health service, will be open WOOD RIVER complaints from — Following several residents Monday night, the city council ypted to conduct a traffic survey on Park Lane Avenue in an attempt to curb speeding. Residents told how hot rodders used the street as a speedway. The ppuncil in turn explained the city police cannot be everywhere at the same time. "We have two police cars and almost each day of the week a radar check is made in some area," City Manager Carlton Laird said. Stiffer fines would cut down 1 the speeding, Mayor Paul Louden said. He added that the council would urge police to do more checking in the area. Another group of citizens com. plained that the new water rates were too high. Mayor Louden said the complaints would be taken under advisement, but added he could not promise anything. In other action the council approved a resolution allowing for payment of $34,317 in motor fuel tax funds for the 1955 street improvement bond issue. Vacating the block long alley between Central and the east end of Acton in Pershall's addition was also approved.

Sprains Knee Norman Gregory, 6, of near Jerseyville, was treated Monday Assembly, the only time parking lights may legally be used by themselves is when the vehicle is at a standstill, Carpentier said. Another change in the lighting regulations is the requirement that headlights be turned on at any time of the day when visibility is so limited that they are needed for safety, as when rain is falling or a heavy overcast obscures vision, Carpentier said. Prior to the change, lighted headlamps were required only from subset to sunrise, he said. Because of those two changes in the law, motorists are now required to turn on the headlights— not (just the parking lights — whenever visibility is poor, and always. between sunset and sunrise, if the car is moving at all, he added. Bicycle riders are also affected by changes in the regulations governing lighting of vehicles, Carpentier said. Bicycles operated between sunset and sunrise must now show both lighted headlight and taillight. In all cases, cars and bicycles, the headlights must be white, yellow or amber, and must be visible for at least 500 feet, and the taillight must be red, and also visible for at least 500 feet, Mr. Carpentier said.

SI V Farm Column Farms Still Dry in August Dry weather continued to jlague farmers during August in most parts of southern Illinois, according to monthly rainfall ummaries from 14 communities ust issued by the Southern Illinois University Climatology Lab- •ratory directed by Floyd F. Cunningham, geographer. Except for Ohio River stations n extreme southeastern .Illinois, most reporting centers had only about one-third of the normal •ainfall for August. Near normal precipitation for August was re- jorted by Brookport, Golconda and Harrisburg. The long - term average August rainfall in southern Illinois varies from about three and one-half to four inches. The continued general drouth pattern is reducing the potential yield of corn and soybeans in various parts of southern Illinois. Spotty rainfall has kept crops looking good in some areas while causing dry weather damage in other nearby fields. After the August deficit in rain, most reporting communities again widened the gap between the year's total and the long-term average ac- cumulation for the first eight months of the year. With a few exceptions the 1963 deficit is running five to ten inches below normal. The temperature story for August ran about true to its form. In spite of a hot spell near the beginning and end of August, the average for the month was one or two degrees cooler than normal. Carbondale, McLeansboro and Harrisburg had the month's highest readings on August 3 when the thermometers registered 100, 101 and 102 degrees respectively. Precipitation totals for August as compared with the long term average are as follows for the reporting communities: Anna, 1.88 inches in August as compared to 4.08 inches long-term average; Benton, 1.60 and 3.80; Brookport, 3.00 and 3.30; Carbondale, 1.70 and 3.76; Chester, 1.79 and 3.48; Elizabethtown, 2.57 and 3.98; Glendale, 2.78 and 3.68; Golconda, 3.74 and 3.37; Harrisburg, 3.20 and 3.81; Marion, 1.71 and 4.01; McLeansboro, 1.20 and 3.56; Mt.
