THE CAMERA. EYE The rising number of Utah traf-fic fatalities and accidents are be-coming increasingly prominent in everyone's mind. Many have come up with suggestions on how to stop or slow down the alarming increase, but none seem to have been effective. The Utah Municipal League just adopted a resolution amending statutes placing all licensed dri-vers under the jurisdiction of lo-cal traffic courts. This legislation would take juvenile traffic offend-ers out of juvenile courts and make them more responsible, lea-gue officials hoped. Other ' states, too, are fighting the traffic problem. In New York, serious traffic offenders are sen-tend- ed to jail. While offenders are cooling off in the jug, they are compelled to go to traffic school to learn how to drive care-fully and safely. This seems like a pretty good idea ... But here's one we dreamed up ourselves and we are parentally proud of it every time a person is convicted of a traffic violation he (or she) would be required to have a- - reflective bumper strip attached to his "Car. This bumper sticker would read: "Beware, I am a speeder;" or "Beware, I run red lights," or "Beware, I am a reckless driver," or "Be-ware, I am a drunken driver." There is one fallacy to this plan, though. Either automobile manufacturers would have to start making bumpers wider or law en-forcement, officers would have to (Continued on Page 15) Action on Gravel Pit Calls For Study The gravel pit located at 50th South and Wasatch Blvd. is opera-ting legally in the F-- l zone, report-ed Alex G. Adamson, member of Olympus Community Council, at a meeting of the group Sept. 10 at the LDS Seminary, 408O-23r- d East. ' However, Mr. Adamson added, the tipple of the pit is two-fe- et inside the residential area. Roland G. Lett, representing re-sident of the area near the pit maintained the operators were pul-ling gravel from the residential area. He also stated that residents of his area were "very disappoint-ed in Olympus Community Cou-ncil."' ' . Council chairman, Eugene B. Duffin, said the group was inter-ested, but that a thorough study should be made before any action was taken. The council appointed Mr. Adam-son and Dr. Reed Richardson to represent Oly mpus Community Council at a meeting with the County Commission Wednesday at 2 p.m. in regard to the situation. C. Nelson Day will revise the present constitution of Olympus Community Council and submit it to the voters at an open meeting scheduled Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. at the seminary. Council members voted to ap-point C. Nelson Day to make a report on the "County Services Act" (proposed county tax on gar-bage and fire protection.) He will make a report at the October meet-ing.

Pioneer Village Offers Education, Old-Fashi- on Fun If a picture is worth a thousand words, an oxen ride at Pioneer Village is worth a hundred times that many words. Many school and church groups are discovering this truth when they visit the vil-lage as part of their Utah history studies. Included in the admission fee for organized groups, is a ride in an old ox wagon, pulled by two large, ferocious - looking oxen. Dangerous - appearing, these reddis-h- brown beasts of burden have been trained by EIRoy Neilson so well that they seldom move any faster than a plodding walk. On occasion, when a group has been posing with the oxen for a photograph, one of the young boys has been swung up to sit astride the near ox and in perfect safe-ty. However, this has been done under close supervision of trainer Neilson. As for the hundred thousand words when a child rides behind the span of oxen, he learns that the wagon starts with a literal jerk; that it's easy to walk faster than-th- oxen do; and he begins to realize what it meant to the western pioneers to ride hour af-- " ; , , ter hour in their --slow-moving ve-nici-t EMC Lions Hear Pierce Brady L.
