A i have acquired great Wisdom surpassing All who were Over Jerusalem before me and my mind has had great experience of Wisdom and a Eccl i 16 a experience it not what happen to a Man. It it what a Man Doe with what happen to a Aldo Huxley englith biologic. Who will be the judges by All rights across the face of the ballot for next tuesday s primary should be the inscription a vote for a Merit appointment system for the judiciary a it won t say that. Instead under the heading a for District court judge in the democratic columns will be the names of to individuals who want to serve As judges in Guilford county. Several of the to names Are unrecognizable even to members of the bar association. Politicking among the candidates has ranged from negligible to nonexistent. And so. As a result. High Point voters will be asked next week to make impossible choices in most cases for people who could be handling very critical posts. This comes about once again because North Carolina has thus far refused to alter its system whereby All its judges Are elected by popular vote. Other states have seen the immense shortcomings of that system and have moved on to Merit selection plans which put into the hands of Legal authorities not. Of course without some degree of politics the Elevation of qualified men and women to such sensitive positions but tar Eelia clings to the old Way which came perilously close in a recent year to putting a fire extinguisher Salesman on the state supreme court local voters May be As mystified by whose name is not on the ballot next week As by whose Are. Such judges As Byron Haworth. De Washington. Elreta Alexander and Dari Fowler Are missing because they have no opposition in the primary. Republicans have no primary at All but democrats must select nominees for four of the District court judgeship. Since candidates Are required to file for a specific seat there Are four different races to be decided now. Like most of you. We done to know All of these individuals. Only one of the group lives in High Point. Our news staff has scrambled just to be Able to present photographs and biographical sketches slated for later this week. We Are not therefore prepared to offer recommendations with which we feel particularly comfortable. We have nevertheless sought out the Best advice we could find by talking at length with people in the Legal profession who have some knowledge of at least some of the candidates. On the basis of this information and advice we plan to vote tuesday As follows first seat James Samuel Pfaff. He has Legal training and experience and has been a chief assistant District attorney for the District courts. Second seat John f. Yeattes or. He has Legal training and experience was assistant City attorney in Greensboro and has been an assistant clerk of Superior court. Third seat John b. Hatfieldjr. He is a practising attorney in Greensboro. Fourth seat Robert l. Cecil. He is an experienced practising attorney in High Point. Before this year s dilemma comes up again we earnestly Hope that the general Assembly of North Carolina will see fit to get us out of the electoral dark Ages and Stop presenting the voters with impossible tasks. By Jas. J. Kilpatrick Washington Star Syndicate at approximately 3 30 of clock on the afternoon of wednesday May 5. On Douglas Road just past its intersection with Monroe in the City of Toledo Lucas county Ohio the que occurred a four car Accident. The Accident was of a Type known As a sequential rear end multiple collision. And thereby hangs a tale. It is a sad tale in its Way for it illustrates How far our government has drifted into the Shoal Waters of sheer bal miness. What happened you see. Is that As a consequence of the sequential rear end multiple collision to which reference has been made Supra two Gallons of gasoline leaked onto the aforementioned Public Way. From that Point thanks to the efficiency of the Toledo fire department the two Gallons of gasoline were flushed into a storm sewer. The sewer runs into Peterson ditch. Peterson ditch runs into the Ottawa River. The Ottawa River runs into Maumee Bay which runs into Lake Erie All of which Are Waters of the United states within the Purview of Section 1321 b i of the Federal water pollution control act. And someone is in a Heap of trouble son. This All began according to the report of patrolman Larry Schultz badge no. 342, when an automobile driven by Gary l. Beckhoff 35. Proceeding North on Douglas Road stopped to allow another car to turn into a private drive. Just behind the Beckhoff car was an automobile driven by Michael e. Hark. 22. Just behind the hark car was a Van truck the property of Gogolin amp sons. Inc., driven by David l. Egan 24. And just behind the Egan Van was a red Chevrolet Nova Sedan driven by William d. Long 18. The Long car hit the Egan Van. Which hit the hark car which hit the Beckhoff car.

Rom we Ihm 5rt shattered Tail lights subsided there could be heard the drip drip drip of leaking gasoline. The Egan Van bearing a License number of 4df820, and having an odometer Reading of 44,500, had sprung a seam. Patrolman Schultz dispatched at 3 34. Arrived on the scene at 3 40. He summoned wreckers. He also summoned the fire department. And As Luck would have it just As these proceedings were proceeding a coast guard inspector happened to drive by on his Way Home. The inspectors Sharp Eye perceived the pollutant As it flowed into Peterson ditch. A this was noted by All witnesses he identified the pollutant at once As gasoline. A a All persons concerned agreed that the pollutant was gasoline Quot thereupon on a visible Sheen of regular Gas events floated into the bal miness alleged aforesaid. On june 9, Ensign James j Gordon or filed a report with the Marine safety office in Toledo citing David l. Egan Driver of the Gogolin Van As the discharge of pollutants to wit two Gallons of leaked gasoline into the Waters of the United states. Ski c j. Hoff. Usog investigated and confirmed Ensign Gordon s report mk3 Randall k Hever. Usog. Was dispatched to photograph the horrid scene commander h. E. Gafford reviewed the incriminating evidence and bucked the report to Captain w c Ochman. A mag chief of the Marine safety division on june 24, Captain Ochman wrote Gogolin amp sons in threatening the company with a civil penalty of up to $5,000 a the specific allegation a he wrote a is that on 5 May 1976 Oil was discharged in harmful quantities into Peterson ditch from a Gogolin heating company automobile an onshore facility within the meaning of the few pc and that you were the owner or operator of such onshore facility on that Captain Ochman asked How a $50 penalty would sit with Gogolin. A a i have preliminarily determined that amount to be an appropriate penalty after a careful review of the investigatory report based upon my assessment of the Gravity of the the Gogolin people outraged at the injustice of it All. Have walked absolutely. Says Elton e. Gogolin or a Why a Small businessman should be subject to this classic example of Federal harassment is beyond rational and indeed it is. But when this correspondent mildly suggested to Captain Ochman that the matter seemed too trivial to justify a $50 Fine the Captain s reply was a nothing is and the sad part of the tale is that in the Shoal Waters of the Federal bureaucracy tis True a tis True senator soaper physicians agree people age at different rates a lot depends on proper diet. Exercise and what Job they Are applying for the judiciary might set up some sort of special award for the probate court that accumulates the most Howard Hughes wills. Graffiti i. N a Gambier chooses the be pro was of use Hurricane Roulette letters to the editor without first hand experience with a Hurricane and unwilling to pay heed to the experiences of others a lot of East coasters decided that a storm named Belle was something they wanted to see for themselves. Largely because of pure Luck they Are alive to relate their own thrills. To say the least it s a Foolhardy thing to do. Absence of a major tropical storm from the Eastern shores for More than a decade As the pattern of hurricanes shifted during that period to the Gulf coast states produced a lot of bravado epitomized by the Rhode islander who took time out from her canned goods shopping to say. A we re battering Down the hatches. Well be ready for anything Belle can dish those who saw the fury and the after math of such As Hazel. Dianne Connie and Ione Back in the 50s could have offered her much better advice than that we d wonder for instance How she might believe she could Cope with fishing projecting the news pier pilings Flung about like so Many matchsticks. That happened on the North Carolina coasts More than once when the storms Tore the piers apart and used the huge pilings As battering rams against the front rows of Beach houses. No amount of a a battering Down is going to provide Security from that kind of intrusion. This kind of sneering at the forces of nature is a situation with which authorities have to Cope Only As Best they can. When the warning comes to evacuate it not Only represents Good sense but it is designed to head off future trouble and peril for those who must later attempt the rescues. As the Connecticut police commissioner said. A. When the water reaches the second floor they panic and then policemen have to risk their lives to get them nature gone amok is obviously a thrilling spectacle. The risk of being close enough to see it is so great that it is Seldom anyone wants to try it a second time we recommend against the first time. On senior citizens and who serves them civil aviation Jubilee some key dates in the history of american aviation Are familiar to nearly everyone dec 17. 1903 the Wright Brothers make the first sustained free flight in an aircraft at Kitty Hawk. Nch. May 21. 1927 Charles a Lindbergh lands in Paris completing the first nonstop Solo flight across the Atlantic but what about aug la 1926 a that was the implementation Date of the air Commerce act. Which inaugurated Federal regulation of commercial aviation including the licensing of pilots it was on this historic Date in 1926 that aviation passed from the stunt stage to become a vital instrument of world Commerce. According to John j Odonnell president of the air line pilots association. Needless to say. Civil aviation has come a Long Way in just 50 years but technological Progress was slow at first. Although the first coast to coast service entirely by air was introduced As Early As 1930, the trip took 36 hours and required an overnight Stop in Kansas City. Still All commercial flights in the United states that year recorded 384.506 passengers As against Only 5,782 in 1926, the first year in which such statistics were kept Domestic air passenger traffic topped the million Mark for the first time in 1938 and reached 3.8 million in 1941, the year America entered world War la and despite fuel rationing and travel restrictions Domestic passengers totalled three million or More in each of the War years and exceeded six million in 1945. The postwar expansion of civil aviation has been nothing Short of phenomenal according to the air transport association the aviation Industry Trade group the number of passengers on Domestic flights Rose from 25 million in 1952. To ii million in 1967. And to 189 million in 1975 because the level of International air travel is highly sensitive to economic fluctuations the growth of passenger traffic on such flights has been less spectacular for example. American lines carried 16 3 million passengers Over International routes in 1975. Or a too too fewer than they carried in the pre recession year of 1969 today civil aviation is one of the nation s most important industries trans world airlines and United airlines placed first and second respectively on Fortune Magazine s most recent list of the 50 largest transportation companies and three other air carriers were in the top to the airline Industry is never free of problems for Long wholesale changeovers from one generation of aircraft to another inevitably have created a Boom bust Cycle passenger safety is an Ever present concern both in the air and on the ground particularly since the Advent of terrorist attacks on or hijackings of commercial airliners and environmentalists Are resolutely opposed to supersonic passenger planes on the grounds that they use too much fuel make too much noise and pose a potential threat to the Earth s Ozone layer the fact remains though that air travel has revolutionized transportation just As thoroughly As radio and television have revolutionized communications a and in Little More than half a Century in both instances. The world May seem a smaller place than before but the possibilities for understanding Between Peoples Are All the greater because of that to the editor in a recent article columnist Jack Anderson spotlighted the National Alliance of senior citizens and its work w Hile the article was basically fair it omitted the key ingredient of the differences of philosophy Between the Alliance and the labor dominated National Council of senior citizens the Alliance rates the Congress on issues of fiscal responsibility in government to protect those living on fixed incomes from the ravages of inflation caused by deficit spending or Anderson correctly states that the Alliance accepts no government funding. The Council supports nearly All big spending issues before the Congress accepting much of its funding from the taxpayers under the programs on which it rates the Congress our organization is new lives within a Small budget from its members and contributors. But we feel strongly that we represent the Best interests of the senior Community. With this in perspective the difference Between the groups becomes evident and seniors May freely elect to join the organization of their Choice. Curt Clinkscales Washington.
