for the torch by a Klan wreck ing crew John H Gipson of Slidell told the House Committee on Un American Activities that the burning was ordered because the churches were being used for civil rights activities BIK Gipson testified he backed out of participating by making up a story his wife was crying and begging me to stay home He said the men he was sched uled to help with the burning told him we understand anc well take care of it He said that when he went to work the morning of Aug 3 1965 he heard on the radio the churches had burned Gipson who lestified freely about his activities as a Klans man told the committee he ha quit the Klan just last week anc that his recent membership had been as an informer for the sheriff of his parish It was after the church burn ings Gipson said that I I couldnt go on with those kinc of things Before telling of the churc burnings Gipson had detaile the whipping of a youth wh needed to be straightened ou with a bell Gipson 29 testified that h

put a lock on is cars gas tank to stop hicves from stealing gas only o come out one morning and iscover that someone had tolen the car A little more than a year ago he Iowa State Highway Com nission put a 35mileanhour peed limit on a 28mile stretch f curvey Highway 18218 hc ween Floyd and Charles City The commission had good ause for its action Between 960 and 1964 11 people had een killed in traffic accidents long the stretch At the time Lane agreed that here should be a speed re triclion on the curvy stretch nit called the 35 mph limit un ealistic and doubted if the imit could he enforced or that t would achieve the desired esults Well during 1965 the acci dent rate on the stretch was educed nearly 50 per cent and here wasnt a fatal accident during the entire year In fact here were only three accidents vhere injuries requiring hos pitalization were sustained Even so Lane still sticks to his opinion that the limit is unrealistic and points ou hat despite the accident reduc tion on the stretch the overal safety picture caused by the curvey road has not been im proved There are two roads which people now use instead of put ting up with the 35 mph limi on the highway Lane point out The accident rate on those two roads both blacktops in reascd more than 125 per cen luring 1965 So you see it i lebatable if any success ha een achieved because of th imit On one of those altcrnat Lane adds the injur requency has been runnin about 50 per cent That mean hat there was an injury sus ained in every other acciden hat occurred along the roa luring 1965 That frequency i well above average for th and of road Lane says Those roads people are us ng as alternates werent de signed for the kind of traffi they are getting Lane says They are narrow and weren built for high speeds One of the ironic things abou he two alternate roads Lan says is that they dont sav he motorists any time He ha checked both routes and foun the driving time along them about the same as if the moto ist had stayed on the highway Many of the motorists are using the alternates ar from out of Floyd County Lan says I dont know how they hea about the alternates he point out but there they are Lane maintains thai his o fice has received a tremen clous amount of complaints about the stretch of highwa where the 35 mph limit is effect The majority of th complaints are about pcop who pass illegally on the stretc he adds They the drivers just cant believe the limit Lane adds Most of the people we stop tell us they saw the signs but FOCUS Please Turn to Page 2 Ball CIA chief go before congressmen

dazzled some of our people Nanda founded the Indian Na tional Grade Union Congress to counter the Communist AllIn dia Trade Union He once described himself as a pragmatist and a Socialist but not a Marxist My heart bleeds for the working classes and this makes people think I am a leftist he said But I am a Gandhian in and out and I want a fair deal for workers If we enlist the sympathy and

regarded as significant here pending a reply from the North Vietnamese capital At least a dozen Communist and nonCommunist countries have both US and North Viet namese diplomats accredited at their
