Why do the bars in the storm sewers on Eastchester drive run the wrong Way that is Why do they run parallel to the curb i thought All Highway engineers knew by now that they should run perpendicular to the curb. The Way they Are on Eastchester they could cause death or injury to bicycle riders. I think it is a shame that a new Street should be built or widened and then have a mistake like this occur. Thank you. J. In m. A. We referred this to Curtis Yates bicycle coordinator for the state to see if this Type of grate could be eliminated in future Road work and also if those already installed could be modified or replaced Yates replied that the parallel drainage grates Are a matter of concern to Many cyclists throughout the state. He went on to say Quot your request along with similar ones from Charlotte Chapel Hill Carrboro and Greenville has instigated investigation on my part with the Highway division. I find that the Highway design Section is quite aware of this problem and no longer installs parallel grates on streets and roads that have any indication of possible bicycle traffic. I have also requested that consideration be Given to alleviating the problem of those existing parallel grates. The response to this request however was not As positive As the first. Replacement of existing parallel grates would involve an enormous amount of Money that the state does not presently have. When checking into Charlottes situation some 300 parallel grates were found on the City streets. A my suggestion at this time would be for the City governments to either consider the Cross hatching of such grates with a device that would allow the bicycle tire to move Over them or to paint caution stripes around the Drain along the Street Side to warn the bicyclist. These suggestions Are not the most advantageous for the bicycle rider but they would provide for a safer Riding environment than now High Points City Engineer Jim Oliver said this Type of catch Basin grate is not used on projects designed and constructed by the City. Traffic Engineer r. V. Moss said his department would look into it and hoped they could install some crossbars to prevent a tire from being wedged.

Adap news analysis by Robert b Dulles associated press writer Raleigh apr Robert Morgan is North Carolina s democratic nominee for the . Senate primarily because of organizational strength he displayed in Eastern and Mountain areas of the state. Morgan did not fare nearly As Well in the Urban areas of the Piedmont. But he Cut his losses there enough to avoid being drawn into a Runoff with Nick Galifianakis. An analysis of the returns that gave Morgan a narrow 50 49 per cent majority also shows that he benefited from the Low voter turnout. The Morgan majority was built in agricultural Eastern counties like Pitt Wayne. Wilson Craven and his Home county of Harnett. In Wayne county for example he Drew 5,190 votes and his opponents combined total was about 3.000. Building on those solid majorities was the Morgan Effort in the mountains. It was strongest in counties where the democratic organization is strongest. The party stronghold of Madison for example gave Morgan 1,295 votes and his opponents a combined total of about 700. But in Mountain counties where Republican victories have sapped the strength of the democratic organization like Wilkes Morgan ran about even with Galifianakis. And his totals were far Short of a majority. The handful of counties where Morgan was not the front runner fell into four categories. There were Urban Piedmont counties like Guilford Forsyth and Mecklenburg with High concentrations of liberals and Blacks. There were some counties that Galifianakis had represented As a congressman like Randolph Orange and Chatham. There were counties where an opponent was the favorite son such As Durham and nearby person for Galifianakis and Union for Wilson and there were a few Mountain counties where the democratic party organization is weak. A Galifianakis staffer looking at the returns pointed to Durham Mecklenburg and Wake As the counties where Galifianakis failed to get the strength he needed to Force a Runoff Wake was perhaps typical of the entire state. It voted 15,135 for Morgan and 15,032 for his opponents. Wake contains the state s fourth largest City Raleigh where the electorate is about 25 per cent Black. Bul it contains Many farming areas and Small towns such As Wake Forest Fuquay Varina and Zebulon.

William e. Stevens of Lenoir see democrats on 3a pachment inquiry by judge John Sirica of . District court has been examined by the chairman ranking Republican member and chief staff lawyers but has not been available to committee members until today. Now. After months of being kept in the dark about it and other evidence gathered by the impeachment staff the committee will Start considering the Case for and against Nixon a impeachment. The opening of the crucial phase of the inquiry will be marked by a round of speeches in Public session after which the committee will go into executive session to consider evidence bearing on the watergate break in and cover up. Chairman Peter w. Rodino jr., in j., said wednesday the closed sessions probably would continue through next week after which a decision will be made on opening them. Another decision facing the committee is what to do about Nixon s refusal to give it any More watergate material. The committee has subpoenaed tapes of 42 presidential conversations dealing with watergate and has a request pending for 76 More. At a democratic caucus wednesday there was unanimous support for issuing a new subpoena but divided opinion on when it should be issued and what it should cover. The most Likely course to be followed was suggested by the senior Republican rep. Edward Hutchinson of Michigan at a news conference with Rodino. Hutchinson said that when gaps appear in the presentation of evidence and chief counsel John Doar says they could be filled by material sought from the White House the committee could decide then whether to request it again. Hutchinson said that rather than Issue a subpoena. He would prefer to negotiate the matter with Nixon s lawyer. James d. St. Clair who will be in the committee room during the presentation but the democrats and Doar appear to prefer a subpoena. Doar said at the news conference the issuance of a subpoena is the orderly lawful Way to proceed. A it int a question of whether we will Issue a subpoena but when a said rep Charles Rangel. D n y. Rodino said the opening phase of the presentation of evidence will be limited to watergate one of six areas of presidential conduct the committee is investigating. Anderson urges Nixon resignation by Frank Cormier associated press writer Washington a rep John b. Anderson a member of the House Republican leadership said today it would be Best for the country if president Nixon resigned and predicted Nixon will be impeached if he does not step Down voluntarily. The Illinois Republican chairman of the House Republican conference said he and other House and Senate Republican leaders have considered going to Nixon and asking him to resign but Anderson said they have decided to wait until after a House vote for impeachment since Nixon has continued to express Adamant opposition to resigning. Earlier House Republican Leader John Rhodes of Arizona said Nixon a bought to consider resignation As a possible options if it becomes apparent that erosion of Public Confidence prevents him from effectively discharging his duties. Rodino said it probably will be the end of june before the committee is ready to vote on whether grounds exist for impeachment. House majority Leader Thomas p. A a tips of Neill said a full House vote on impeachment will take place about aug. I. John Rhodes a i do not feel that we have yet reached that Point a Rhodes added Anderson told newsmen he thinks the watergate transcripts released by president Nixon last week have been devastating and that Nixon cannot survive the resulting negative View in the country of his White House leadership. Again and again. Anderson said Nixon missed chances to take the initiative to end the watergate affair.

B. Weather.3a refined cussing great help expert by Walter r. Mears associated press writer Washington a after futile efforts to dam up watergate the White House apparently is trying now to drown the scandal in a deluge of words. That s half the strategy. The other half is to Stonewall it against further disclosures of White House tape recordings demanded by Congress and the special prosecutor. Public release of the edited watergate transcripts and the series of White House analyses speeches and comments that have followed add up to an intensive Campaign to get across the presidents version of the Story. One Assumption in that Effort has to be that however Many americans take the time to read the 1.254 pages of edited conversations about watergate almost everybody will know that the president made them Public. In that Campaign the act of releasing the White House transcripts was itself a crucial step whatever Reading they get and whatever construction is put upon their ambiguities. It was unprecedented and it put the White House in a Posi tion to say that the president by his own decision had revealed Quot the whole Story of the president and his men Are stressing two themes that the transcripts for All the scars they May put on Nixon s image show him innocent of knowledge of watergate or its cover up and that everything relevant to the Case now has been made Public. The key is relevance and the fact is that the White House decided what fits that description. House impeachment investigators do not agree that the whole Story is out. Furthermore they want to judge for themselves what is relevant not Only in the transcript tapes but in other so a White on 2a by Timothy Harper associated press writer Milwaukee apr.
