The priina.y system 40 years ago contained only 6,400 miles of highway, bill had 1,063 grade crossings, most of them unprotected. That's one for every six miles of road. The elimination of grade crossings has come about partly by abandonment of trackage by the railroads and partly through better highway planning and construction, the Highway Cdmmis- sion report, covering the period from July 1, 1958, through June 30, 1959. says. In the last fiscal year, for instance. 12 grade crossings were eliminated by abandonment of lines, but construction of industry trackage added one. Primary road changes, extensions and construction and Interstate Highway construction eliminated 23 and added 22 grade crossings.

He propsoes putting transparent glass shells all around office buildings, apartments or homes whose own walls would be made mainly of glass. The separate glass shell is a logical step offering striking advantages in design and housekeeping, says Hajjar, a professor of architecture at. the Pennsylvania State j University. j Glass is becoming a main buil- j ding material for offices, and i even a few homes, going beyond large picture windows.

By the end of the year, Iowa How Wiil the New Wave in Britain Vote? By TOM A. CULLEN NBA Staff Correspondent LONDON (NEA) - They were born about the time of the Munich agreement which led to Hitler's rape of Czechoslovakia. They were toddlers while the Battle of Britain raged overhead. On Oct. 8, they will vote for the first time in a British general election. There are 3,200,000 of them, all through which to circulate air to born between 1935 and 1938, and feet from the building, the same distance that many projections already stick out.

Transparent plastic panels with electrical circuits printed on them would supply extra heat in winter as needed, with a blower circulating the warm air. "In summer, the blower would carry off the sun-warmed air, or an air conditioner would circulate cool air. "Louvres on the inner walls would provide shade, or privacy. "Lamps mounted inside the outer shell would provide indirect lighting — the building would shine like a jewel." "You design things not to be different, but because these things want to happen," he declares. "Architects have been solving problems with glass buildings as problems cropped up.

Currently, the New Wave, as these political unknowns are called, is giving both Conservative and Labor party bosses their biggest headaches. For nobody, least of all political experts, knows how these youngsters will vote. A Daily express poll of the 25- and-unders gives the Conservatives a slim lead of two and a half per cent over the Laborites. But one in seven of the young people is still uncommitted, which is double the percentage of "don't knows" in the electorate as a whole. Post-War Austerity The New Wave grew up in a Britain of postwar austerity with ration points and clothing coupons. The only milk and eggs they knew were in powdered form, and they didn't see a banana or a pineapple until they were 10. Communism had supplant e d Nazism as the threat and the Korean War had begun by the time the youngest of them was 12. Today, the people they admire most are Sir Winston Churchill, the Queen, Dr. Albert Schwietzer, the Duke of Edinburgh and Elvis Presley, in that order, according to a recent poll. America has been their ideal ever since they can remember. It is America that sent food parcels to a rationed Britain; America that makes the biggest cars, the best jazz, the brightest films. Whether they will associate Prime Minister Macmillan's Conservative government with American-style prosperity they are now beginning to enjoy is one of the big question marks. The New Wave now takes the modified welfare state for granted. It has never known acute poverty, mass unemployment, hunger marches or even a doctor bill. The State has always looked after the eyes and teeth of the young generation, given them orange juice as babies and free milk at school. More Education Thanks to State scholarships, more of them are students of graduates, and more of them are scientists than in any generation be- THE LABOR PARTY has sewn up the votes of ilipscv>ynnng women, but the political sympathies of most of their contemporaries arc unknown. Draft Rejection Rate for Iowa Under U. S.

But even so, a higher percentage of lowans were accepted than the national average, Col. Glenn R. Bowles, Iowa Selective Service director, said in his annual report.

Of 4,262 lowans given pre-induction examinations, 1.370 were rejected during the 12 months covered by the report. In addition, out of 2,019 examined at the time of induction, 213 were turned down for service. A total of 352,284 men between the ages of 18 and 35 were registered in Iowa as of last June 30. There were 20.183 new registrations during the fiscal year. The report said Selective Service operating expenses in Iowa for the year came to $524,004, up from $483,578 in the previous year. Central office expense was down $1,738 from 1057-50, but the cost of of New Winter Tire Price Tir«*tont O for fore.

The new generation has never known a world without atomic energy and television. America has never seemed more than 100 hours distant by air. Their world is a small one. They have very little idea what the Spanish Civil War was about, or the abdication of Edward VIII. To them, the Duke of Windsor is just the Duke of Windsor. |l The political unknowns money, marriage and love are the important things in life, with religion rated a poor fourth, according to a recent Gallup poll of the 15-29 age group. They marry earlier, have children earlier, and f)5 per cent think that the fidelity of both partners is essential to a successful marriage. Other statistics show, however, that half of the teen-age couples who married in 1957 had babies within six months, and that 7,000 teen-age girls gave birth to illegitimate children in the same year. One in five of a,ll girls who marry under 21 appears later in a divorce court. The New Wave is earning twice as much as the equivalent age group in 1938. Their record players and bicycles have always had three speeds, and they buy more of them. In general, they are optimistic about the future. Only 20 per cent of those polled by Gallup think that there will be a third world war during their lifetime, although 47 per cent confess that they don't know. More than half express themselves as against emigrating to another country. On October 8, Britain will know how the 3,200,000 votes of the New Wave were cast. Until theji, the professional politicians will toss in their beds, wondering whether the new battalions will spell victory or defeat. iod.
