"We must remember," he said, "that our neighboring Southern states, along, our own state, have been declared a disaster area by the USDA because of drouth.

C.-W-Hundreds of Carolinians today dug out from under the litter left in the wake ol the weekend hurricane. Hurri- can Able, a small Atlantic storm as such storms go, swept in on the South Carolina coast Saturday night. At its center, as it roared through Charleston and down the coast 'to Beaufutt, winds reached 100-miles-an hour, leaving torn and twisted power and communication lines, devastated trees and signboards, and roofless houses. Highways, in some places inches deep in water* claimed two victims near Hardeevil'.e, south ol Beaufort. One death was reportnd at Beaufort by the Civil Air Patrol. Residues of the coastal area, forewarned and expei.'ing the season's first hurricine,, remained calm through the ime'.^ency and battened the hatches \~. anticipation of the bldw. As a result, prop- light. The path of minor destruction ranged in a wide arc inland during the early hours of Sunday, proceeding up from the coast to. ward Orangeburg and Columbia in South Carolina. Then, veering in a northwesterly direction, the diminishing winds and violent rains hit at Greensboro, N. C., and passed through the Tar Heel Piedmont into the Danville, Va., area. By that time the hurricane had 'simmered down to what the Weather Bureau calls an "active low pressure area," with wind velocity of about 25 miles an hour. Citizens of Beaufort. Walterboro, Charleston and other wind- racked communities came out this morning to view uprooted trees, shattered windows a n d store fronts, overturned billboards, and, erty damage was comparatively in some cases, un-roofcd homes. Many Drivers Fail To Heed Traffic Laws By FLOVD CARL. JR. Despite a police campaign which netting record numbers of speeders, reckless driving appears to be on the increase in Fayetteville; As a holiday visitor put it yes' terday: "We've got plenty of bad drivers at home, but up here they seem to try to hit you on purpose." Some of the drivers caught by police were just careless, driving too fast and thinking of something else when they went through the stop sign. But others--many of them--operate with a cold, callous Indifference to the possible deaths they may cause. Saturday afternoon a city prowl car turning around at Fairview cemetery on the northwest city litmits, stopped when the high speed whine of an approaching truck became audible. When the vehicle, a county dump truck, passed, the officers gave chase, heading toward the h_eart of town. Although the police car at times ran in excess of 70 miles an hour, the truck continued to pull ahead until it reached the intersection of Highway 45 and East Maple--scene of many accidents. At Maple the driver slowed to 45 miles an hour as he went through the stop sign, but was HD- parerhly unable to hear the police siren over the roar of his engine. The Drowl car finally drew abfeast of the soeeding machine at (he corner of Lafayette and Willow.. Booked on charges of speeding, running a stop sign and operating a motor vehicle without an operator's license, the, driver's only comment was: "Was-I going a little too fast?" The truck also failed to display * state license. A few minutes earlier the same prowl car officer had arrested two drivers for failing to observe the stop sign on the Manic-Mission Street intersection. Drivers who made any effort to slow Were not arrested, tickets going only tn :hose who completely disregarded the sign. Saturday was a rather routine day from a traffic standpoint. No serious accidents were reoorted, and no one was injured. But the same prowl car driver also arifst-. ed two drunken drivers, warned a score of less serious offenders, and F iled out a handful of* tickets on various offenses. I Other city patrolmen were also ausy, and State Police and men from the sheriff's office were also m the Job. The officers piled up a leavy docket for Municipal Court. But, according to nolice estimates, the officers actually saw only about one per cent of the traffic offenses which occurred in Fay- itteville Saturday. Transit System Cottlr New York-m-The Board of Transportation says the city's transit system went $24,773,883 nto the red in the fiscal year ended June 0. The board said the deficit the preceding year amounted to $3.0«7,520. Hospital At Springdalels Open House Attracts Thousands; U. A. Dean Speaks Springdale - (Special) -Several thousand persons attended the dedication and open house yesterday of the new Springdale Memorial Hospital, which will open for service next Monday, September 8. Dr. Hayden Nicholson, dean of the University School of Medicine in Little Rock, made the dedicatory address in a program which was broadcast over Radio Station KBRS.

A large number of physicians from several cities, including Joplin, Mo., and Fort Smith, attended.' Many of the Washington County Medical Society members were present, including the president, Dr. Fred Ogden. Stirted In 1950 Construction of the 32-hed hospital was started December 20, 1950, and was completed with furnishings at a cost of $600,000. Of the total cost, $200.000 was raised by individuals and firms in the Springdale area, and the re- maipder was obtained from the U. S. government in a. grant under the Hill-Burton act. The building is of perla-- light buff-colored -- brick, with a front entrance of stone and glass. It is 168 feet long and 181 feet wide. It has 12 private rooms, each with private bath and six with air conditioning, and 10 semi-private rooms with two beds each. Additional beds can be installed If necessary. In addition to the private rooms, air conditioning is provided for the front administrative area, and the operation, delivery, emergency operation and fracture rooms. Each bedroom is equipped with oxygen and lelenhone outlets, as well as an executive unit for communication with the administrative area and the nurses' central station. Plans for building the hospital were started in 1948. as a memorial to Dr. C. P. Sisco, veteran physician who died August 24, 1948, at the age of 62. The family of Dr. Sisco, however, later asked that the hosnital be dedicated instead to past Snringdale doctors and war dead. This suggestion was adopted.
