Of the 139 revocations last month all but three were for O. M. V. I. (Operating a Motor Vehicle Intoxicated), and two of these were for committing a felony using a motor vehicle and the other was for larceny of a motor vehicle. The 136 cases of OMVI included one manslaughter charge, one third offense, 12 second offense and the remainder, 122 were classed as first offenders. A breakdown of the report for drunken driving revocations shows that nearly half of the violators were in the 25 to 45 age group, although 18 were listed in the 15-25 group, which included one second offender. The 25-35 age group were responsible for 30 OMVI charges, which included one revocation for manslaughter, one for motor vehicle larceny, and two second offenders; while the 35-45 group received 35 convictions, including five second offenders. The older drivers had less OMVI convictions with the 45-55 group listing 12 revocations, the 55-65 group eight, and the 65-75 age group only four. The remaining 32 OMVI revocations were for operating a motor vehicle without a drivers license, and the department had placed a stop order against any of these violators being able to secure a license for a number of years. Of the 87 suspensions made effective in July, fourty-four were recommended by the Courts, and the remaining 43 by the Depart ment of Public Safety. Reckless dviving violations accounted for 18 of the 28 licenses suspensions for a definite period, and the others were for such violations as: failure to stop at stop signs, negligent oper ator, habitual violations, lack of car control, etc. Ten of the violations listed for suspensions for indefinite periods were against physically incompetent drivers, while seven each were for insanity and habitual violators, and eight for failure to appear when ordered. Other causes were listed as follows: inebriacy, reckless driving, vision failures, leaving scene of accident, altering license, negligent operations, etc. Hughes pointed out. that the report indicates nearly half of the 87 suspensions were against the youngest age group, the 15 to 25 class, as they caused 36 violations, in contrast to the older age group penalized by revocations. Fourteen of this class were charged with reckless driving and eight as habitual violators, while 14 were suspended for other violations, including speeding, etc. The next youngest age group 25-35 lost 11 licenses, while the 45 to 55 group and the over 75 years of age group, each had nine suspensions. The 65-75 group is listed with eight; the 55-65 with five; and the 35-45 class with only three. Six were caught without drivers licenses and the Department has suspended their chances of getting a license very soon. Keep Hand Iron Free Of Sticking Starch There are simpler ways to remove starch when it sticks to your iron than reaching for the nearest knife or other utensil and scratching it away. And these methods won't harm your iron, says Fannie Gannon, Iowa State College home management specialist. Once the plate of your iron is scratched, it may catch on fabrics and pull threads. Here's how to remove starch that scorches on when the iron is hot. Shake salt on a piece of paper and then rub the iron back and forth over it until the starch rubs off. A very fine steel wool or a moist cloth dipped in fine scouring powder is an answer when the iron is cool. Sometimes just rubbing with a moist cloth will do the job. To prevent sticking starch,-rub a little beeswax or paraffin frequently over the hot surface of the, iron, Prepare you^ starch careful " ly Miss Gannon ad«k Well-cooked lurch is lets Ukely to rtick than starch which is not thoroughly cooked. There is a wax preparation on the market which helps prevent sticking and makes ironing easier. This is added in making up the starch. Herald Want Ads bring results. Warning for gardeners to be on the look-out for late blight attacks on potatoes and tomatores was received today by Fred O'Riley, county extension director. The warning came from plant pathoto gists aHowa State College. Late blight has been found on potatoes at Armstrong, Laurens and Shenandoah, as well as at the experimental plots at Crystal. Lake. William Hooker and W. F. Buckholz, Iowa State College plant pathologists, said that the disease was found spreading rapidly during the past cool, cloudy, rainy period. O'Riley says that late blight can become especially serious at this time of year on late potatoes on low land or muckland. Such areas, he says, should be sprayed without delay if cool, wet weather or nights with heavy dews persist. Use a spray consisting of 4-4-50 Bordeaux mixture.. There is not as much danger of the disease appearing on high ground-as low ground. A period of dry, warm weather will serve as a natural check on the disease. While it has been found on potatoes, the pathologists warn that j late blight also attacks tomatoes. They should be included in the | spray program. The pathologists emphasize that recommended treatment is only for Iowa conditions. Folks living in states bordering Iowa' should consult their own experiment stations.
