8-Algena (la.) Upper Dei Moin« Thurtday, Dee. 8, 1966 20 Percent Of Vehicles In State Unsafe Commissioner of Public Safety, Gene L. Needles, announced today that more than 7,400 ol 349,781 cars and trucks in Iowa were found to be In unsafe driving condition during the 1966 National Vehicle safety check. Items most frequently found in unsafe condition were tail lights, headlights, stoplights and almost 1,000 of the rejected vehicles had unsafe brakes. "While this rejection figure doesn't seem to be too high," Needles said, "we must remember that most of the people who volunteered to have their vehicles checked, thought they were in good mechanical condition." He said that the Highway Patrol finds that 20 per cent of the vehicles checked during road vehicle safety checks have some mechanical defect. Needles noted that while Iowa ranked third in the nation for total number of vehicles checked in the voluntary program, still only 1 of 5 vehicles registered In Iowa was inspected. "It seems to me," Needles said, "that this points out the need for legislation in the field of mandatory periodic motor vehicle Inspection. If we are to be assured that all of the vehicles in Iowa will be in safe operating condition, we must reach 100 percent of the people instead of the 20 percent we are now reaching in the voluntary Inspections."

As a close friend of Peter and Berta Ciucyk and their children, I would like to add a footnote to Glen Hanson's article in last week Thursday's Messenger. I have been a witness to another side of America since the fatal accident which resulted in the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Ciucyk and Roland. I refer to the many kind and generous people who stepped forward and helped in this tragedy with no thought of thanks. They are almost too numerous to mention — those who helped at the scene of the accident; doctors and nurses who worked tirelessly with the survivors; the doctors who tried so valiantly to save Mrs. Ciucyk's life, the neighbor who sat at her bedside; the priests and friends who had the painful task of preparing for triple funeral and then turned their attention to the living members of the Ciucyk family; welfare officials who worked day and night on the case, the couples who offered to take these children into their homes temporarily or permanently; the lawyer who is handling the . trust fund; the wonderful women of Algona who took turns staying with the orphaned children at the hospital; those who handled the donations; and the many peo- pc who donated toys, games, pajamas, robes, slippers, books, shoes; boots, clothing, and money for the chidren. I'm sure that there are others, also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all. Mrs. Joe Bednarx Bancroft, Iowa WE SELL SNOW TIRES TOO!

On July 1 of next year, remaining funds in '.he program will be turned over to the Trea- su-y Department. There they will be deposted in i trust fund, where they will remain ivailable for payment without time limitation whenever proper claims are received.
