As a mailer of fac Phil assistant slale a lorney for this county (plus Lucie, Indian River and OkeedK bee counties) hopes so loo. There's a need for more assis ants, and the bill probably pass. The main question will b "Where goes the new A logical break would be to keep Indian River and St. Lu cie together in the present triet covered by Nourse (who has done a good job, incident ally.) That would put Martin an Okeechobee together, not an un likely setup. No Okeechobee a lorney appears interested in th position at this time, but Marti has at least one hoping, and he' make a good one, at that. it Won't be long before many o all of these questions are an swered. Four more rough week to the Tallahassee session, an that's it! Mallory Johnson, of the Stuart Jaycees tells me there WILL be a national Road-E-O after all. It had been dropped, informa- tion reaching here had incticat ed. Mallory said he'll get the dope today. It's to be held in Wash ington in August, and Paul Mat thews, who won the Florida con test, will represent this state. Odd thing about Paul's win was the fact he was only second here went up to the State finals be cause Randy Tilton, winner here couldn't make it. (Paul's in for a summer of driving instruction you can bet.) If the Florida East Coast rail- way is going to continue using those motor-cars-on-tracks ve- hicles, they'd better do one of two things before there are tome bad accidents. Either fix the warning gates al grade crossings so they drop on approach of the vehicles, or make the cars stop at grade crossings. The drivers apparently aren't familiar with the crossings, since they drive hell-bent through them, rot even sounding the vehicle's loud horn until right upon" the crossings. surprise of seeing a car coming along a railroad track and at B high rate of speed, plus loud and late bellow of the horn is scaring the wits out of unsuspecting drivers. In a (legal) strelch, I paced one of the cars the other day. It was doing well over 65 and failed to tlow at a gated grade crossing. The first-floor bulletin board in the courthouse blossomed with a hand-lettered sub-bulletin Thurs- day. A piece of cardboard, it car- ried the title: "Superintendent's Bulletin." On It that day was an an- nouncement of a sixth grade track meet to be held on Fri- day morning.
