Is it true, as tated by the state Historical and Museum Com- mission, that the state plans to renovate and repair the bridge before it is turned over to the society0 What help if any could the county commissioners give toward the proje t under new laws permitting county commis- sioners to preserve historical sites? What is the opinion of the supervisors of the two townships involved concerning preservation of the old bridge? Can insurance be obtained agains' possible van- dalism, and how expensive would it be?

"The 13 colonies, beginning with the settlement of Virginia in 1607 and ending with the founding of Georgia in 1733. had governments based upon their local needs had changed the orig- inal character of those govern- ments. The colonies had been per- mitted by England to govern themselves to a large extent be- cause of their distance from Eng- land and because the mother country feared that too drastic enforcement of unpopular laws might cause the colonies to ally themselves with the French in Canada." Dean Tilberg said. "In addition the French and In- dian War. brought on by the mov- ing of the American colonials into the rich lands beyond the Alle- ghenies, land claimed by the French, had developed the basis for an eventual American Army and also had convinced the colo- nials that they were the match for the British soldiers. The French and Indian War served as a splendid training school for both officers and men of the American Army of the future.

Nathan F Twining, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in their differences with Gen. Thomas S. Power, head of the Strategic Air Command. Eisenhower rejected Power's call for a continuous airborne, bomber alert, and also the gen- eral's contention that the United States faces the danger of having its retaliatory striking force knocked out by Soviet missiles. A Bit Irritated Eisenhower seemed to be a bit irritated when talking of -Power's differences with Gates and the joint chiefs. Too many of these generals have all sorts of ideas, he said. President warmly praised Jates and Twining and added that e has complete trust in both. Eisenhower said further he be- lieves he spent enough time in the military to know what he is talk- ing not to be dis- turbed by what he termed the parochial viewpoints of those who say the bosses know nothing about it.

WALTERS I HARRISBURG 'AP; A new traffic safety program aimed at the chronic violator and the phy- sically incapable driver goes into effect in Pennsylvania March 2. Gov. Lawrence announced the plan at a special news conference Tuesday. In putting the new program into effect by administrative or- der, the governor bypassed the Legislature which had pigeonholed it in the 1959 session. Its principal features include: A revised system of penalties, classified according to severity. Re-examination of all drivers with two serious violations within a year. Medical examinations every 10 years, starting in 1961. Experimental use of radar by state police in what was termec an educational campaign to win public support. Safety Commissioner Creation of a commissioner o traffic safety. A campaign by the health de partment to encourage use oi chemical tests for drunken driv Jers. The new penalties will be in ome respects more severe, but generally milder than the system >f graduated penalties inaugurated >y former Gov. Leader in 1956 and revised in 1958. The principal difference is the classification of offenses into two types: Class A for the more seri ous infractioas and ('lass B for those "less likely to be the cause of a serious mishap." Some Stouter Penalties Many of the penalties will re- main unchanged. Among those made tougher are for speeding. sen ted by his mother, Mrs. Franklin R.
