Civil Aviation Death Toll 20,000 in Past 25 Years WASHINGTON — i/P) — There have been more than 10,000 fatal airplane crashes in U.S. civil aviation in the past quarter century, and more than 20,000 persons have been killed in them. • By far the greater number have involved light aircraft— private planes, sports craft, corporate planes and the like. - The Civil Aeronautics Board published this week a summary of accidents in general aviation—that is, all flying except for the airlines and except for military aircraft. Includes Ground Mishaps For the years from 1939 through 1963, the most recent year for which final figures are available, the CAB listed 113,039 general aviation accidents. Most of these were crashes, but also involved were hundreds of accidents while the planes were on the ground, taxiing, or even standing still—as when a per­ son walked into a propeller blade. Most of the general aviation accidents were of a relatively minor nature, but 10,337 of them brought death to 17,246 persons, the CAB said. By corriparison, CAB statistics for the U.S. scheduled airlines for the same 25-year period list 1,098 accidents, including 157 fatal crashes in which 3,310 persons were killed. Rate Declines In that period, as the volume of air traffic grew by tremendous proportions, the passenger fatality rate on the airlines declined from 2.27 per 100 milli(jn passenger miles in 1939 to 0.23 in 1963. And although general avia- ation also has increased by leaps and bounds, tlie accident rate has declined from 12.4 per million plane-miles in 1939 to 2.3 in 1963, and the fatal accident rate has dropped from 1.1 to 0.2. Probe Reports U.S. Plane Was Intercepted by French PARIS • American —l/P) — French and authorities Saturday night investigated reports that an American jet photo- reconnaissance plane had been intercepted by a French fighter in the prohibited area above the French atomic plant of Pierrelatte.

It was theorized that romance and jealousy might have motivated the shooting. Officers said Stewart was l&st seen alive in a Montello restaurant where he talked for some time with a local girl. They said the two men bjsing sought talked with the same girl prior to Stewart's entrance. The name of the girl vvas not revealed and it was njQt known if she left the restaurant with Stewart. • But a witness gave information indicating that Stewart njight have been waylaid by a gang of youths who stopped his car on darkened Highway 23 one mile west of Montello. •:, Authorities said Stewart •v^as shot once in the face and twice in the back with a .22 cjsiiber pistol, but no weapon was found at the scene. ;;Mr. and Mrs. Leon Goodhue of Oxford told authorities they witnessed the shooting. • Goodhue said he saw Stewart's car stopped by youths ridirtg in two other cars. One car stopped in front of Stewart's auto, the other to the rear. Goodhue said he saw s'everal persons standing around the car, heard a scream and three shots. The persons involved scrambled into the cars and sped away. '. Goodhue said he gave chase for about two miles but could not keep up.

Air Force Base in West Germany, had not been "intercepted," but had merely been "identified" by a French patrol. The incident, according to U.S. Air Force officials here, occurred Friday. They said the plane returned to its base normally. The American officials asserted the plane had been in the general area of the Rhone Valley south of Lyon, but they said information available Saturday night was that the U.S. plane had not entered the prohibited zone around Pierrelatte. U.S. officials said the plane was on a pre-arranged training flight from Ramstein to France and return. They said it was forced to deviate, by reason of a thunderstorm, from the flight plan previously filed with French authorities. The Paris newspaper Le- Monde said the French fighters, Vautour all-weather interceptors, forced it to land near Pierrelatte. The French news agency, in a later story, said it was caught and "invited to return to its base in Germany." Will Coat Dusty Road to Humphrey's Home WAVERLY, Minn.— i/P) — The price of fame is a cloud of dust. At least that's what happened ' at the home of Vice Pres. Hubert Humphrey, so officials have agreed to put an oil coating on the dirt road past the house. Before Humphrey became vice president, the road was rarely used. Now an average of 500 carloads of sightseers drive by daily. The oiling will be completed next week.

Colorado Is First State to Reject Presidential Succession Measure Sundoy, July 18, 1965 RACINE SUNDAY BUUmN 3A Humphrey Tries to Form Coalition to Push Johnson 'Must' Proposals DENVER — — Colorado Saturday became the first state to turn down the proposed amendment to the U. S. Constitution on presidential succession. The action came when a state Senate resolution to ratify the amendment failed to receive the two-thirds majority required for passage. Nineteen senators favored the measure and 12 opposed it, but 24 votes were required for passage. Raised Objections Voting for the proposal were all 13 Democrats present and six Republicans. Four legi.slators were absent. The amendment, recently passed by Congress and sub­ mitted to the states, provides for selection by the president of a new vice president when that office becomes vacant and sets up a procedure under which a president can be removed from office temporarily for disability. The provisions of the amendment drew some criticism on the grounds a presi- Wants 1 Taxicab, Gets 3 Fire Trucks MIDDLETOWN, N.

One senator also opposed it on the grounds that a man never elected by the people to any office conceivably could become president. Needs 38 'Ayes' There also were charges that it was hastily and poorly drawn. The action came during a special session of the Colorado legislature called to increase the state gasoline tax one cent to 7 cents to help repair highways damaged byj floods in June. The legislature is expected to adjourn today with another session rot scheduled until January. To become effective 38 of the 50 states must approve the amendment, the 25th. Already approving it are Wisconsin, Nebraska and Oklahoma. WASHINGTON — m — Vice Pres. Hubert H. Humphrey is attempting to weld an urban-rural coalition that could bring congressional passage of an omnibus farm bill and elimination of state authority to ban union shop contracts. These are two key measures of a half dozen on which President Johnson has made it clear he wants action before Congress quits, possibly by Labor Day. Other bills on this "must" list include revision of the Immigration law, aid for higher education, creation of an urban development cabinet department and doubling of the anti-poverty outlays. Humphrey has been talking like a Dutch uncle to new Democratic members of the House in a series of recent meetings. He has told them if they want to win again in the 1966 elections, they had better take home some accomplishments this fall. Must Pitch In He has told big-city members bluntly they won't get repeal of the Taft-Hartley Law provision pemiitting state to prohibit the union shop—a top objective of organized labor—if they don't pitch in to help their rural colleagues. Members from the country districts already have been to the well twice, producing the PRELATE CRITICAL TORONTO — m — James Cardinal McGuigan, 70, archbishop of Toronto, suffered a heart attack at his home early Saturday and is in critical condition, his physician, Dr. Edward Brooks, said. necessary votes for House passage of rent subsidies in the housing bill and for creation of the new urban affairs department. They are now being told they will get the farm bill— aimed at improving farm income, reducing government- held surpluses and at cutting government costs—if they will co-operate on the union shop issue. Teams Organized In an effort to make certain that everybody stays in line, the vice president has organized teams to canvass the members. Each state has a captain who makes periodic reports to him. The Humphrey effort, which has the solid backing of Johnson, goes beyond the matter of domestic programs He has told the 61 new Democrats from marginal districts that they had better seal themselves solidly to Johnson because they are going to stand or fall largely on the president's record. For that reason he has asked them not to try to appear as experts on how the war in Viet Nam should be run. They aren't required to say anything, if they can't say something in support of the president's course, he has argued. Look for Editorials The vice president's associates have been scanning publications for editorials supporting the president's position. They have sent many of these along to House members urging them to put them in the congressional record, thus putting them on record as backing the president In return, the new Demo­ crats have received help from Humphrey's staff in organizing their offices. They have been provided with mailing lists and arrangements have been made for television-radio appearances. Beyond that, the Democratic National Committee has been chipping in to buy airplane tickets so the members can return to their districts frequently. Despite all of these efforts, Humphrey is reported to feel that it would be something near a major miracle if the Democrats could save next year the seats of 75 per cent of the members they elected in Republican and marginal districts in Johnson's landslide last year.

Natural forces which must be controlled through proper car speeds include friction, which helps to hold vehicles to the pavement by tire gripping; centrifugal force, which pulls against a car when swerving or rounding a curve; gravity, which pulls a car downhill; impact, which increases in destructive force as the speed of an impacting object is increased. All are affected by the speeds at which a car travels.
