While this free nation debates the question and casts around for a successful formula dictatorial Germany has decided to get at the roots of the matter by curbing the speed Knowing the psychology of the wild man behind the wheel the Nazi officials have reached the conclusion that the temptation to is reduced to a minimum at 30 miles an hour And so after a man has been convicted of recklessness his car is given a mechanical adjustment to prevent him from driving at more than a 30-mile rate Furthermore the machine carries a police seal to prevent tampering and one can imagine that the penalty for violation would be something to remember Nashville (Tenn') Tennesseean Tallulah Defeats Little Rock 8-5 Last Sunday afternoon in Lake Village Ark at the Moberly Park the Tallulah Owls met the

been added to the movement for legislative reconsideration of the Louisiana severance tax on sulphur in the form of a resolution adopted by the Louisiana Press Association in its annual convention at Bunkie urging downward revision of the severance tax The formal action of this influential group climaxing a short week in which the movement gained statewide interest and won virtually unaimous chompionship by individual and group business and professional-leaders was regarded as one of the most significant of all the many official expressions The Press resolution noting that is now on the verge of an unprecedented era of industrial progress and much headway has been made in attracting new industries and payrolls to Louisiana as a result of the constitutional amendment adopted last November which gives the Governor authority to exempt new industries for a period of 10 years1 goes on to take cognizance of the conspicuous flaw in the attitude of fair treatment and welcome industry and that is the existence of a severance tax that is out of line with that of other In the week since public demand for this readjustment began to make itself felt open letters and resolutions have been prepared and adopted by such other important groups as the New Orleans Clearing House Association the Traffic Club of New Orleans the All-South Development Council the Young Business Club 'of New Orleans and the Louisiana Retail Lumber and Building Material Association Advices from Baton Rouge indicate that in addition to these communications and others from community Chambers of Commerce many individual business men have addressed telegrams or letters to the office urging thorough consideration of the effects of the $2 tax raised from 60 cents in July 1986 on vigorous bidding for new industries with a view to modifying it to remove this in the taxation picture A point made in the All-South Development open letter was that: addition to this tax inequity (compared to Texas where the sulphur tax ia $108) Louisiana sulphur production has natural disadvantages arising from unfavorable location extreme geological difficulties and the presence of contaminating oil in the extracted sulphur which means either that the sulphur must be sold at some discount or put through an extra and very costly refining process to bring it to a degree of purity comparable to that of sulphur produced in Thus there is need the council said in a press statement accompanying the letter for assuring Louisiana sulphur developers that they will have at least no more governmental handicaps put in the way of expansion and exploration than do producers in Texas The Clearing House resolution set forth that summarization of factors both immediate and of future importance nvolved in the obvious inconsistency of this tax leaves no doubt the minds of forward-looking persons and groups that it has had discouraging effects on outside capital which Louisiana has been seeking to At another point the statement said is the consensus of this association that allowing this tax to remain at the present figure stands in glaring contrast to the theory of tax-exemption for new The open letter by the lumber association said in part: the factors affecting the success of the movement current throughout the south to present a Stat' of Louisiana Parish of Madi-im Sixth District fouiL Succession of

organized by the department of commerce is a' straw in the wind giving a clear warning as to the direction preventive efforts may be forced to take if present efforts fail to get adequate results in the reduction of useless slaughter on the highways The government committee asserts that high speed and poor lighting account for the major part of the highway accident deaths of last year The reason often assigned for the present high speed construction of cars is that it enables drivers to extricate themselves from hazardous situations But if they are used to create still more hazardous situations for the innocent as well as the reckless something will have to be done about it Dayton (Ohio) Journal FIFTH LA DISTRICT LEVEE BOARD HOLDS SPECIAL MEETINGS At a special meeting of the Board
