Mr. and Mrs. George Jen- sen, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Biecha and Forrest Fair drove to St. Joe, Me. Friday to at- te'nd the annual National High- way 36 Association meeting on Saturday. Melvin and Forrest were nominated and elected to serve on the Board of Direc- tors for the ensuing year. The guest speaker was Mr. Jack Lacy, Director, Department of Economic Development for Kansas. This meeting was well attended and the public is urged to attend the annual State meeting in Atwood, Kan. on May 12th. Rep. Arden Dierdorff was the panel moderator. Arden is chairman of the roads and highway committee in the Kan- sas liouse of Representatives. A copy of the resolutions passed at the meeting was sent to Governor Robert Docking, Kansas State Highway Com- mission, and the high~,ay and roads committees in the Kan- sas House and Senate. The main section of the re- solution stated: "The National Highway 36 Association ~ives strongest support to an accel- erated highway program in Kansas, based on highway user fees and taxes; to the use of revenue from additional highway user funds for bond L'inancing and to construction of freeway systems as opp~,sed to pledging of highway funds for toll roads." Some of the facts brought out at the meeting: Kansas has the 3rd largest highway sys- tem among the states in the union (133,000 miles); this state ranks 29th among the states in the amount of money spent for higl~ways: and Kan sas has the lowest rate of high- way user tax per vehicle of any state in the union.

NOTICE Drivers License examine. teens will not be given on Fri- day afternoon, March 24, due to the one-half day holiday on Good Friday, according to C. W. McKay. chief driving II. sense examiner of Kansas. Examinations will be remnm- ed on Monday, March It. Me. Nay said. treas. Merchaois ~ill orovide sdcks Southwestern Bell Telephone~ Company today announced the plans to equip its new passen- ger cars and trucks with emis- sion control devices to help combat the growing problem of air pollution. The first new vehicles equip- ped with the control devices will be delivered to the Com. pany in April. They will then be placed into service in Kan- sas and throughout Southwest- ern Bell territory, Joining the Company's fleet of almost 11,000 vehicles in Texas, Okla- homa, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. "Southwestern Bell, like oth- er companies, is concerned about the growing nationwide menace of air pollution," said James F. Haake, vice presi- dent and general manager for the Company in Kansas. "We are hopeful that by taking the initiative and installing these emission control devices in our new vehicles we will contribute to the solution of the air pollu- tion problem as well as encour- age other firmswith large ve- hicle fleets to do the same thing. "As older vehicles are re- placed, our entire fleet of pass- enger cars and service trucks will eventually have the anti- pollution devices?' Southwestern Bell operates a fleet of 1,135 vehicles in Kan- sas. The vehicles travel nearly 12 million miles annually, The control devices, which will be installed by the vehicle I ,ms i manufacturei', are actually two separate systems. One syste~ controls crankcase emissions and another controls exhaust emissions from the tail pipe, The function of the exhaust emission system ls to prev~t unburned hydrocarbons from reaching the tail pipe, particu- larly at times of deceleratlop and idling when the ft~l-alr mixture is richest and internal combustion is incomplete. Altogether, 1,300 Southwest- ern Bell vehicles will be pitt. chased this year with the anti- pollution equipment. Abeut 118 of these will go into service in Kansas. Dear Boyds, A 'check for $4 elie..}oeed. please extend our sulZseript/~ for a year. We don't want to be without the hometown INt. per.
