'Round About Town! By JACK WALLACE TIMES SUJf Writer Severe thunderitorms, tornado sightings and Hash floods, .such as those experienced in the past few weeks, are common occurrences during t h e ;spring of each year. And they bring with them an assortment of problems. One 'problem is that citizens, by the hundreds, call law en.". forcement agencies at the Theight of every storm, requesting information and thereby tying up telephone lines needed for emergency operations. Chief Hollis Spencer told the Fayettevilte Police C h i e f Hollis S p e n c e r told the TIMES that, quite often, the flood of phone calls makes it necessary for him to pull a man out of * patrol car just to answer the telephone, where he could be better used. THIS BRINGS up another problem. In many emergency situations, such as the recent flooding at Siloam. Springs, many police departments are asked to handle radio calls for the stricken community's police department, complicating the situation even further. T h r e e ·men -- and possibly even four -- are then needed to handle all the problems in the radio room alone. A simple solution to the problem, Spencer said, would be [or listeners to tune in to one of the local radio stations, most of which have a direct line to the National Weather Service Office in Fort Smith, where all storm warnings are issued for this area. Spencer pointed out that the news media receive the same information that his departme rtocs, at the same time. Radio stations broadcast the informa- ion as soon as it is received. SPENCER NOTED that persons desiring information regarding storm warnings, damage, road conditions, etc. can receive the information faster by turning on their radio than by callirrg the police department. Police, in an emergency situation, are often busy relaying information to o t h e r law enforcement agencies. The policeman can give the caller only the same information as that available from the radio. In addition, all radio and television stations are members of the Emergency Broadcast System, (BBS) set up by the federal government in conjunction with the Office of Emergency Preparedness and Civil Defense to provide the general public with information in the event of an emergency. The stations themselves are in close contact with the various law e inforcement agencies, gathering all possible information to iroadcast to listeners. . ONE STATION, KBRS in ipringdale, is equipped with an emergency generator system so hat it can operate in the event of a power failure. KBRS is also listed as the primary station in the EBS system for this area, which means that, in the event of a national emergency, ill other stations must leave the air and only KBRS may continue broadcasting. I n , any event, Spencer said, citizens tuning in to area radio stations to obtain weather and other emergency information TOuld greatly ease the situation at police departments, resulting n better protection to the general public by having more men In he field and less confusion elsewhere. "In other words," Spencer said, "listen to your radio instead of calling us." UA Architect Student Wins Design Citation Maneg Yul Yi, a Korean student in the School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas, has received a citatioi in a nation-wide student competi tion lor the design of correc tional facilities. A citation means the design was selected as one of the finalists, and is commended for "high quality or unique features." , The competition, sponsored by the national Clearinghouse for Criminal Justice Planning and Architecture, with backin; of the American Institute ol Architects and the Law En forcement Assistance Administration, was held in order to stimulate interest in and seek new approaches to ths design of several types of correctiona facilities. The three categories of projects which were open to stud ent entries were: A Community Correction Center, an intakt Service Center, and a neighho hood "Halfway House". Yi's design entry was in the latter cat egory which entailed remodel ling and adding to a typica'. brpwnstone house in a large mid-western city, to house '31 recently discharged inmates while they re-adjust to society. Yi, a native of S^oul, has a degree In architectural engi neerirtg from the University o Seoul. He enrolled at the 'UA last fall with advanced standing and is pursuing a bachelor o architecture degree. He was one of a number of fourth ant fifth year architectural design students who worked on the By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newslettdres Writer A woman is just as old In England as she is in America hese days -- too old if she must worry about revealing her ige. "Somehow the age consciousness that Americans have fetish about has drifted to ;ngland," observed Freddie toss, 44. It doesn't bother her, but oc- :asionally the dynamic London tusiness executive who operates in the man's world of gambling has her feathers ruffled. "Sometimes I can feel my jose twitching as I restrain myself when people tell me not o mention my age. Why not? Sooner or later it must be rec- ized that maturity is impor- ant in business. The bright (leas of youth can be teamed with it to accelerate ideas, and t might also be useful to curb unaway enthusiasms." And somebody should admit hat women and men need each ither in business, she remarked. Women's intuition can be combined with the male's analytical pursuits -- they love o make charts and combine statistics -- for the just-right 'business chemistry," she insists. PERSON NEEDED "But every woman needs a shut-up-darling person. My late tusband was one. My bosses of- en tell me to shut up, but they don't add the darling." She likes that attitude better Lunchroom Managers End Summer Study Thirty-five lunchroom managers in Arkansas public schools are enrolled in the third and final phase of a three-summer course for school food service study at the University of Arkansas. Classes began Mon iay with graduation schedule* for .Tiuie 21. The workship is sponsored by the School Food Service Divi sion of the Arkansas State De nartment of Education, the University of Arkansas Depart ment of Home Economics and the UA Division of Continuing Education. The managers attending this final 12-day session are enrollec in advanced classes of m e n i planning, personnel manage ment and organization, a kilcben management.

Womens' Worry About Revealing Age han merely being tolerated at xard meetings of the Coral L.eisur* group which she attends as "new developments" supervisor of their 10 divisions which include 269 bookmaking shops, bingo parlors, an enter- rise that "is a cross between :.oney Island and Atlantic City' and four prestigious gambling l o u s e s . The world-famed Crockford's gaming house has iust been refurbished up to its .4 karat gold leaf ceilings. And 7 million pounds is being put into a new enterprise that will combine all forms of leisure. "I dabble in all of it and they let me meddle although I'm not supposed to meddle. They used to think some of my ideas were silly, hut some have paid off well, so now they listen when 1 say something at a meeting," One idea suggested providing little bags of penny candy to gamers who had to ride buses to a theater at 2 a.m. to see an American championship fight on television. The bosses seemed to think that after all that glamor -- champagne, gourmet cuisine, gaming -- the elegant crowd would laugh at her effort. But they loved it and now demand little bags before they board a bus. LIKES TO THINK An idea person, she has been working since she was 17 and likes o think about such things as "whether they wouldn't have more women visiting this restaurant if the lighting were better." On a recent gambling holiday in Las Vegas -- she can't play at the English houses -- she enjoyed "the great entertainment." In London, the gambling houses are more formal, she emphasized. For example, the girl croupiers, who are about 22 years old, wear long black skirts and white blouses. The image may be more "suffragette" than gaming house. A woman supervisor may even spot a girl wearing a black bra beneath her blouse. Such nonconformity is against the rules. "Women are good croupiers because they are so good at concentration, but they must master the gambling language, and attend the school at Crockford's for six months," Freddie said. Fleming To Retire After 27 Years At UA A Catcher For Pedestrians LONDON (AP) -- British Leyland safety engineers have designed a "pedestrian catcher" aimed at cutting down road casualties. Main elements of the system, still highly experimental, are a .ow modified front fender, a wedge-shaped bonnet (hood) and a retaining bar which scoops up the victim. The effect of the low fender -- between 12 and 13 inches from the ground -- is to tip the pedestrian out of the path of the car and on to the engine hood, which is contoured to reduce injury. Almost instantaneously the retaining bar -- actuated by a sensor on the fender -- is triggered to prevent the pedestrian from sliding off the hood. The device has been tested satisfactorily with dummies at speeds up to 15 miles per hour. In Britain accident statistics show that 49 per cent of all road deaths involve pedestrians. These deaths and serious injuries are most often caused when pedestrians are thrown forward in front of the car. The system, developed by British Leyland, is aimed at controlling and cushioning the pedestrian and reducing injuries and deaths in low-speed accidents. Jack Daniels, chief engineer in charge of the project, says that the biggest drawback for the pedestrian catcher is the United Slates' regulation, now almost generally accepted, that fenders should be 20 inches from the ground. "We have no doubt from our research, and the statistics prove it, that fenders should go down -- rot up," says Daniels. Joe W. Fleming, associate professor in the Horticultural Food Science Deaprtment of the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, is retiring after 27 years on the UA faculty. Fleming received his bachelor's degree in 1931 and a master's degree in chemistry in 1943, both from the TJA.He also has done post-graduate work at the University of Maryland. Fleming worked as a chemist for Stanolind Oil and Gas Company of Tulsa. Okla., from 1941 until 1947. He joined the UA faculty in 1947 as an assistant professor in the Department of Horticulture and Forestry. He was promoted to associate professor in 1958. Fleming always has devoted full time to research at t h e A g r i c u l t u r a l Experiment Station, primarily working with grapes. He has played an active role in the research on handling o f mechanically harvested grapes to maintain a high quality of juice, and on the problems of machine harvesting of grapes.

EYE ON EVERYONE But it wouldn't be too easy to ave a mistake go unnoticed, judging by Ihe progression of observers. The inspector watches the supervisor, a pit boss watches the inspector. And who knows what the assistant gaming director and director are watching as they wander about. Keeping up with the boys is sometimes rugged, but Kreddje is proud of her record. "Sometimes my day doesn't end until 4 a.m. but I am in my bath at 7 a.m." she says. Not all of their gaming houses are fema!e j minded in the jobs department. "At Curzan House, the most elegant of all our gambling houses, the manager is a holdout. He doesn't want lady croupiers, but that may be because he is within spitting distance ot the Queen Mother's house,' she observed. Recovery Room's Special of Specials!
