At least one person thinks you're still In possession of all your marbles Paula Carter remembers when people put cam- phophenique or cilronella on cotton balls to keep the flies away. Another, good fly repel- lent, she says, is a pot of basil. Plant several pots of the set them around the back porch or the barbecue pit and not only will you have a fly repellent but you'll be grow-' ing your own seasoning for your next pot of spaghetti. Q. There's a new law that motorists may. turn left after stopping at a red light where two or.e-way streets Inter- sect. Where in Abilene can we do this? A. At five intersections Cypress and N. 2nd.

The wiretaps requests in question are made lo federal judges, who must give approv- al before Ihe taps can be made. Justice Byron H. White, writing for a unanimous coiii'l, noted Ihat the Nixon ad- ministration insisted lhal il should have wide lalilude in delegating (he attorney gener- al's authority lo 'request wire- laps because Ihe federal Inw grants wide laliludc among stale officials in approving wiretap requests. While said, however, "il is apparent that Congress de- sired to centralize and limit Ihis authority where it was feasible to do so, a desire eas- ily implemented in the federal establishment by confining Ihe aulhprity to approve wiretap applications to Ihe attorney general or a designated assis- tant, a llorney general.

SB Women's News 3B Most Truck Drivers Ignore Shutdown Call BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Truck traffic rolled normal- ly today, in most stales despite ;i call for a protest shutdown, but scattered violence, llarcd in Kentucky and Pcnnyslvan- ia. Overdrive magazine, a Los Angeles-based magazine called for the shutdown. Inde- pendent drivers supporting the strike demand a fuel price rollback, h'igher speed limits and an audit of oil companies. Mike Parkhurst, editor of Overdrive, called a news con- ference today in Washington, D.C. Ilis publication supported trucker shutdowns in Decem- ber and F e b r u a r y which brought-about an increase in freight rales and guaranteed supplies of dicsel Two shols were fired from passing cars into trucks on In- terstate 75 early today in Ken- but no one was injured, police said. One incident oc- curred near London, Ky., and the other near the border with Tennessee. Pennsylvania State Police said someone firing a high- powered rifle from .a bridge shot out the windshield of a Irooper's car on the Pennsyl- vania Turnpike east of Breeze- wood. The officer was unin- jured. Windshields of three trucks wove smashed, with rocks in Fayette County, Pa., and pick- els tried to ball trucks along U.S. 40 and U.S. 19, aulhorilies said. A trucker in Bedford County escaped unhurt when his wind- shield was smashed by a rock thrown from an overhead bridge. Despite the si-altered vio- lence Pennsylvania authorities said trucks were rolling' at near normal rales in the state. Business Normal Say Truck Stops Despite a rumored strike by truck drivers scheduled lo begin Monday morning, four truck stops along Interstate 20 report- ed business as usual and no sign of a pullover. The strike, called for by Over- drive magazine, was designed to force Congress to raise speed limits for truckers and lo lower diescl prices, about the same reasons given tor the last truck- ers strike earlier this year. Employes at Abilene Truck Terminal, Hilllop 66, the Wylie Truck Terminal in Tye and the Sweelwaler 76 Truck Slop, re- ported business a little sloir, bul close to normal. "I'VE GOT A driveway full ol truck right said Fred Crcshaw at the Wylic terminal. haven't heard of anyone slop- ping, but several of the drivers said Ihcy would slop if they were asked. They just haven't been asked." Glenda Casio, a cashier at the Sweelwaler 76 Reslauranl said llial business was a liltle slow, but mosl of the drivers she had talked to seemed lo think a strike would do no good. "Mosl of (he drivers are. say- ing that another strike would be just like hclorc, Ihnl it won'l do ;my good." she said. Checks' around the nation showed truck traffic was near normal today in Delaware, Maryland, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Indiana, .Soulh Alabama, New York, South.Dakota and Con- necticut among others. Truckers groups in Jiinheso- la, Nebraska and New Hamp- shire adopted a wait-and-see posilion on Ihe shutdown call. A spokesman ffir independent drivers in Denver said the strike was working Ihefe but was not able to provide fig- ures. Spokesmen for the scores of independent Irucker organiza- tions Ihat sprang up during (he last strike generally said they either couldn't afford to shul down or didn't think it would do any good. There were scattered re- ports from police and truck stops in the Midwest lhal truck traffic was down slightly early today, and same spokes- men for independent drivers said.they were honoring the call. Men who claimed to repre- sent 18 groups of independents said in Kansas City, Kan., Sunday night that they had just .finished meeting with two federal officials and were going to.shut down.
