WEDNESDAY, APRIL IS, 105S ALTON IVIftWO T8LBORAPH Carpentier Want* to Get Line On 'Fewrt and LOOM? Driven By WTOBR Sprlnnield, ill. /T—Secretary of 8fat§ Charles V. Carpentler wants to get a line on that small fraction o! motorists who make a habit of playing fast and loose with the rules of the road. He Is asking authority to take them off the highways for the protection of their law abiding fellows. A method of separating the goats from th^sheep is proposed in Car- pentier'i bill for • strict new state driver's license act slated for introduction in the General Assembly this week or next. Strengthens Control Basically, the plan seeks to strengthen a central control file in Springfield, set up to give full information on violations chalked up against each driver for moving traffic offenses—those like speed.* ing, reckless driving, failure to observe a stop signal and driving while intoxicated, Courts would be obliged to send in reports on all such convictions. The present law provides for limited reporting of this type. Compliance has been poor, although it is improving. Under the new plan, a state's attorney or the attorney general would be authorized to enforce effective reporting by proceeding against a tax .official for omission of duty. With complete and accurate records, the secretary of state could single out motorists demonstrated to be habitually reckless or as having a general disrespect of traffic laws and suspend their driver's license. Spells Out Power The Carpentier proposal would spell out the secretary's power, now questionable, to require reexamination on'five days notice of any driver he has good cause to believe has become incompetent. Two other provisions would do away with the need for notarizing driver's license applications and for signing the license on I he ra- verse side to render it valid. The suggested new act would stiffen some of-the present penalties for traffic infractions,. most notably the punishment for \driving after a .license has been suspended or revoked. The penalty would be a mandatory jail- sentence of a week to a year and, at the discretion of the court, a fine up to $1,000. The current penalty, which applies dn- ly in the case of a revocation, is five days to three months in jail a fine up to $500, or both. Post-Haste Not New Postmarks are nothing new, visitors are' learning from new displays in an Egyptian museum at Cairo. They can be seen on 3,000-year-old letters written by Court officials in the time of the Third Dynasty. The postmarks are red or blue and each shows the place of the Better's origin and bears the slogan. "In the name of the living King, Speed!"
