September 19. 1S57 Page 15 Editorial Page ! further responsibilities and autho-rity, and secondly, be held ac- -' countable as an accessory to any crimes Bernt Murphy might have committed. These officials are a disgrace to humanity because of their neg-ligence and unconcern for their fellow man! Write us and let us know what you think. Two years ago, ld Joce-- . lyn Hickenlooper was killed. A' few days ago, a little four and ld girl was ravish-ed, strangled and left for dead. An illiterate, mentally - unbalanc-ed youth named Bernt; Murphy has confessed to both' crimes. A former inmate of the Ameri-can Fork Training School (for the mentally defective) for five years. Bernt Murphy's history is one of disobedience, dishonesty, brutality and previous sex offenses. While confined in school, rec-ords show this hulking 190-poun- d youth injured other inmates and attendants. The day before he was released, he knocked down an attendant! He confessed using his power-ful hands to strangle both the fe-male victims. One is dead and the other was left for dead! Officials at the training school admit they have neither the equip-ment nor staff for maximum se-curity and control over inmates as unmanageable and violent as this confessed sex offender and strangler - killer so they dis-charged him and turned him loose on society to run rampant and ravage innocent women and help-less babies! Educated and supposedly re-sponsible grown men released a vicious person like Bernt Murphy upon our unsuspecting communi-ty! Bernt Murphy has not been con-victed of these last two crimes, even though he has confessed to them, and he is, according to law, innocent until proven guilty. In addition, his mental condition may cause him to fabricate consider-ably. But it IS a fact that he is a past sex offender; that he DOES have criminal tendencies and that he is a cruel, mean, mentally de-ficient and a convicted sex offend; er! Because he is mentally defi-cient, he can't be expected to con-duct himself normally. We are not excusing Bernt of his crimes we think he should be dealt with so society need never fear him again. But, we think that those school officials who were respons-ible for his release should be dealt with also! Whatever their reason for re-leasing this menace to humanity, they should be held accountable, for they couldn't have helped but realize that he would continue his past criminal pattern when re-leased. We feel that these people who have no more thought or concern for our women and children than to release upon them a brutal sex offender like Bernt Murphy should first of all, be removed from any Whether the car in your gar-age is the latest high-power- ed beauty to flash off the assembly line, or a not-so-ne- w model as dependable as an old friend, you naturally want to keep it running smoothly and economically. The gasolines you buy today give you a head start, of course, because they're precision proces-sed to make the most of modern automobile engines. But good fuel can be wasted, too. It's up to you to watch out for the hidden gas-robbe- rs of motoring. Tires that are underinflated, just five pounds, for instance can cost you a half gallon of gasoline out of every twenty. Dirty air filters can steal ten per cent of your mileage. And other common motor ailments such as poor com-pression, faulty spark plugs, and slow-actin- g chokes all work to pull down mileage. Regular check-up-s at your local service station are the best preventive for these. And what about your driving habits? An idling motor will" use up about one-ha- lf gallon every hour, but every nervous tap on the gas pedal ups the consumption rate. The fast stop you make be-cause you've been crowding the car ahead takes its toll in fuel. If you care about you car (and who doesn't) drive it to your neighborhood dealer for regular check-ups- .

(Continued from front page) attach these signs on the trunk of the car, because most offend-ers are such habituals there wouldn't be room to list all their offenses on present bumpers. Not only would this be extreme-ly humiliating to the driver, but it would be an easily recognized sign for law enforcement officers to watch for. Offenders could be required to display the sign for a period of at least three months. Violators who failed to display their stickers would be liable for stiffer punishment. As author of this plan we think we should at least be exempt because you can bet your bottom dollar we would be the first to be caught trying to get some-where "five minutes ago." velopment will pay $50,000 to 100 people who can predict the most important economic problem the United States will face 20 years from now.

Oh, yes, and Ike and Mamie are vacationing, too, at the Newport Country Club.
