2-Aleono (la.) Upper Des Moine« TUESDAY, JULY 10, 196J 1AL PAGE DOUBLE ACCESS LOGICAL The hearing on improvement proposals for highway 169, from south of Algona to highway 9 in the north end of Kossuth county — and dis- cOssion on the proposed relocation of highway 169 just west of Burt — was handled with comparatively little friction, last Thursday evening. Folks from the Burt area, and especially trie Town of Burt, had a valid objection to the original proposal. They request two access roads tq Burt, one from the west and one from the north. The original plan only called for one. The reasons why two access roads are requested were sensible and well presented. Unless the highway commission is in a contradic- tdry mood as the testimony is later heard in Ames, we can see no logical reason why the request for two access roads would not be granted. It should be. The two sharp curves that would be eliminated in relocation are dangerous ones, it must be conceded, especially the southern one. A relocation that would eliminate them would be a considerable improvement, assuming of course that the farm land involved, which would be required, is fairly compensated for by the state. As the State of Minnesota completes its new double-divided highway on 169 from the Twin Cities south to Mankato, more and more traffic can be expected on highway 169 in Iowa. The proposed improvement is timely. * * * India accepts our wheat gladly, almost for free. But India is going to buy Soviet MIG-21 jet fighters instead of U.S. F-104's.

Guess the plane-makers in Russia don't have quite the deal they do in our country. * * * A super salesman is a real estate man fast enough on the telephone, when asked by a feminine voice if they sold maternity clothes, to reply "No, madam, but could I interest you ,n a larger house?" * * * The most noticeable fallout in this country loday is that of shelter promoters falling out of business — Decorah Public Opinion. * * * The most agreeable companion is one who would not have you any different than what you are. — The Tri-County News STRICTLY BUSINESS game..

Well-meaning, but misinformed, bystanders often move an accident victim immediately. Intending to make the injured person more comfortable. They may instead make it harder for him to recover. In many accidents broken bones are involved. When a bone is broken, the jagged ends of the break can puncture the skin or vital organs, causing internal injuries. If the victim is NOT moved, the broken bones can do no further damage. When there is an accident, send for a doctor. While waiting for him to arrive, make the patient as comfortable as possible. Do NOT raise his head. Keep him lying flat. If he regains consciousness, urge him to lie still. If he is lying on a cold or wet surface, try to work newspapers, a blanket, or clothing under him. But, advises the Iowa State Department of Health, disturb him as little as possible. Keep the patient warm with clothing or a blanket. In extremely cold wsather additional heat can be supplied with hot water bottles; however, this should not be done except in the very coldest weather. Naturally, there are exceptions to every rule. In cases of severe bleeding it may be necessary to move the accident victim to prevent further loss of blood. Other conditions such as location of the victim or danger of fire must be considered. But, in general, unless you have had complete First-Aid training and know exactly what you are doing, do NOT move an accident victim. Wait for the doctor or the ambulance. * * * TRYING TO WRECK PROGRAM Emmetsburg Democrat — "The most important villain in the Estes case ii the vast tangle of the farm price support system, with its accompanying systems of production controls and surplus storage," says Time magazine in its cover story recently. "Price support programs provide scant help for the neediest farmers; the most bountiful benefits flow to prosperous farmers, who could get along with no government aid at all. ". . . If there had been no price-support programs, there would have been no inviting storage business for him (Estes) to get into, no cotton allotments to obtain by fraud. "In its sheer gaudiness, the Estes mess dramatizes the farm scandal more vividly than ever before. If that dramatization were fo result in something really being done about the farm fiasco, who knows but that the U.S. might even owe a vote of thanks to non» other than Billie Sol Estes." We wonder what Time would suggest for more than 80 per cent of Palo Alto countys' farmers who are in the farm program. Most are neither rich nor yet ready for the county farm, and they are as honest and hard-working as Time Is. The magazine rashly and irresponsibly advises junking price-supports, ignoring the farm collapse that would follow and could bankrupt a vast section of our country. And thus airily solving everything. Time offers no substitute and as far as we can tell, after reading the magazine for many years, it never has. Good heads in government and out have been trying to improve on the farm program for years. All are aware of the present evil which are very serious. But bad as the Estes scandal is, is it so bad we should wreck agricu ture because of it? Time forgets, too, it is living in a glass house. Not long ago Mr. Luce, the maaazine i j • u .1 tycoon whose interests include Time howled "n ! * US - tu ™ ed '" by Alg ° na " S durin S Swca City, in ah effort to save Dynamic Corp., Repairs ----trees and shrubbery in the town, s D °r 0 u«r Repairs' '!
