May 24, 1964 Memorial Day Casualties a Warning to All Drivers Captain J. W. Blackwell, Highway Patrol Commander for the Amarillo district, has called on all motorists to be extremely careful over the Memorial Day week end. But beginning now, more people than ever will be on the road, at play and work, and what Captain Blackwell has to say about Memorial Day driving applies for every trip. In recent years, since the advent of the automobile, we have found ourselves involved in the needless slaughter of our fellow citizens at a rate not equaled in history. We have had the automobile approximately sixty years and in that short space of time have already killed more Americans than have been killed in every war fought by our country since 1775. This holiday which we observe at the beginning of our Summer vacation should be filled with only pleasant memories but instead we use the excuse of a few days out of the office or off the job to fill our newspaper headlines with tales of blood and horror. In the final accounting, however, it comes down to the responsibility of each driver to keep this one fact in mind. The safety of every user of the highways is only assured to the extent of the most unsafe driver on those highways. If only the dangerous drivers were killed in traffic accidents the problem would soon right itself but we find that in a great number of accidents it is the innocent driver, passenger or pedestrian who suffers. Make this holiday a safe, sane and sensible one for you and your family. Keep Memorial Day a day of respectability instead of infamy. DR. JACK L. ROSE OPTOMETRIST Contact Lenses Closed Saturday Afternoons 505 Main MEMPHIS Phone 259-2216 CROSSROADS REPORT Dear Editor: I see where an electronic computer got loudly bragged on because it took the first few returns from the Oregon primary and iright quick it spit put the name of the winner. ; But there wasn't! even Honorable Mention for the old iboy who adjusted and set up the innards of this contraption so it could perform this igreat service to mankind. My highballed-up neighbor says this is roughly like ignoring the driver completely and giving the car a medal when .it escapes from some traffic in' terchange without a scratch. Master Planners up in Washington are plotting to spend 2500 Billion .Dollars of our money in the next 20 years, to tear , clown all of our old ugly cities and rebuild them prettier. This would more than double our present) taxes, and it wouldn't leave some folks with much money -to buy groceries, but we'd sure 'have elegant cities to starve in. And when they get all the urban areas beautified, ' they can start prettifying the rural regions, Tike maybe hiring a big herd of abstract sculptors to tear down and re-stack the Rocky Mountains. t ion Show in Dallas •, ^ ">'" ,-!?'> M ,Owner s',< and 'buyers ~of Wellington stores handling Women's ready-^o-wear and fabrics are n Dallis'to attend, the annual H»y fashion market/lvhich op-^ enecT Su'nday, May 24.

The claim is that these poo folks just can't live on a meas ly $20,000 to $25,000 and fring es per year, .and their ipligh will be sympathized with b many folks living on $4,000 or $5,000 without fringes. But it could be that we have just got a set of very poor money managers in office, and maybe they ought to ibe swapped off for folks who are clever enough to live on what) they make. Considerable fanfare in the news about the U.S. is loaning some more millions of dollars to 13 poor Latin American countries. My trend-noticer neighbor says this shows how our language changes as the world gets more " sophisticated, because it used to be this word "loan" was used only in cases Mrs. Herman Belew of The Fashion Shop.

The theme for this fashion market is "Fall and Back to School Fashions," with emphasis on dressy fall ensembles as well as play and informal wear. Southwestern buyers litei'ally set the national pace in fashions. The general feel is that if a new item is well accepted in Dallas, it will 'be a success across the nation. Many manufacturers use Dallas 'to test acceptance of new designs before major (production of a style begins.
