President Takes Immediate Steps to Aid Europe Traffic Violations Reported by Jr. Highway Patrol Yuma drivers who have recent- ly received little red traffic cards from H. B. Breech, chief of ;po- lice, may be interested to, know their violation was reported. by the Junior Highway Patrol. These are the children you sen at the intersections in the school zones who assume the responsibility of seeing that their fellow students are allowed to cross the street safely. Citizens were urged today to make it. a point to obey the safe- ty rules in these zones by city of- 'icials. According lo E. C. Byrd. city recorder, no fines have yet 5een paid on. the charges, how- ever if local drivers continue to run- the stop signs and drive in excess o -flhe speed designated they will be subject to the full penally of the law. find most of the drivers in Yuma are eager to cooperate with the Junior stated Byrd, "but there arc still a few who seem to be in such a hurry that they continue to ignore the speed limit as well as the stop signs and orders of the student on duty. When we receive more than one report on the same per- son, there is little we can do but prosecute the case." However, we can't expect ev- erything to come from them. Ad- jmtlecl, that's their job. But there is an old adage which says that two heads are better than one. And it follows that several heads are better than two. L( not pass off this safety and traf- fic problem with wave of the hand in the direction of Uic police department.. You drive those streets time after time, day after day. You can see where an inv provcinunt can be made here, an error rectified there. Tell the next policeman you see. Or tell us and we'll pass it along. Like the fa- ther who told us that too many drivers arc ignoring the stop signs that control traffic onto Eighth Street, lie's worried about that for his daughter has to cross that street to go to he should be.

Sure enough, when he went to the kitchen he found a cute little snake a little over u f'jut long, decorated with beautiful orange and brown colors. It was so pret- ty in fact Russell decided to pick it up and place it in an empty milk bottle. During several other occasions during the evening" he picked the snake up by its tail. The pay-off, whirh sent a few chills down Bob's spine today, was when he found out he had been playing with a coral snake, one of thc'mosi deadly reptiles known to man.

Y., Sept. Ti today asked the United Nations General Assembly to denounce the Marshall Plan and transfer to the UN responsibility for the economic reconstruction of Europe. The proposal was laid before the Assembly's 55-nation Economic committee at the climax of a strong attack on Secretary of State George C. Marshall's Euro- pean aid program by Dr. Oscar Lange, permanent Polish delegate to the UN. Lange said the Marshall Plan had split Europe ia two and warn- ed that "prosperity, like peace, ia indivisible and cannot exist in one nation, one group of nations or even on one continent while mis- y and chaos arc elsewhere." Says it Cunnut Referring to the 16-nation Par- s conference which is working out ietails of the Marshall program, ..ange said, in effect, that the Am- erican-sponsored project cannot possibly work because it has rais- ed a barrier at a time when East- ern and Western Europe need eadi jthers' help and resources. Lange submitted a formal rcso- ution which, although it did npt name any countries or refer di- rectly to the Marshall program, stipulated that the; 55-nation As: sembty should call on all the United Nations to "carry out all recommendations of the General Assembly based on economic and social masters and make use of the machinery of the United Nations' in settling fundamental international problems." Repeatedly, Lange said that the relief and reconstruction program now being prepared by the 16 gov- ernments of Western Europe and the United States had by-passed the UX and threatened the world organization with gradual extinc- tion. Africa i'tilicy Defended In the trusteeship committee the Union of South Africa defend- ed its administration of the Ter- ritory o'f South West Africa with a refusal to accept the role of "in- ternational delinquent" in the United Nations. H. G. Lawrence, minister of so- cial welfare for South Africa, said that any attempt to "stigmatize" this country might set a precedent "that would be sincerely regret- led" by the UN. His defense followed three days of debate about the General As- sembly resolution during which 18 nations have criticized South Af- rica tor its failure to grant trus- teeship to South West Africa. At the end of the first two weeks of the Assembly the U. S. diplomatic war was at fever pitch.
