A exercise is just the Star says Federal High a exercise you know is re Way officials approved a a Ydia and conducted numerous phone conservations with Federal officials regarding the revised design. The Star said a plan was drawn up after a study of the area was ordered and paid for by mrs. . Carmichael wife of Eugene Carmichael who was then a Highway commissioner representing a four county area in Mcmillan a District. State officials offered no explanation As to Why mrs. Carmichael paid for the study. The Star said the division Engineer for the Federal Highway administration . Dulin recommended the Diamond interchange after an extensive Federal study. After Dulin made his recommendation the Star said a then began the pressure to add a Loop for the southbound traffic. A you would have to be an idiot to not realize that there was political pressure in this thing a Dulin said. A the matter went All the Way to Washington where Dulins superiors backed his the Star Story said Frank c.

A according to Cha records the Diamond interchange already was under construction when South Carolina officials including Mcmillan a began pressure to add a Loop the Star said the Loop was eventually built and the state bore the entire Cost of the project.

A you should be in my basement jumping rope punching the bag lifting weights. Mond Exchange for the intersection but Alan Schafer owner of a South of the Borders tourist Complex and chairman of the Dillon county Democrat to watch profit margins few changes envisioned for controls machinery Washington a the pay Board and Price commission have survived a six month shaking out and Are facing the future with Little anticipation of major policy changes. Officials say they re still determined to work themselves out of their jobs and return to an Unco 4rolled Economy probably sometime next year. For now. The Price commis Aion intends to concentrate on strict enforcement of its limitation on profit margins and the pay Board minus four of its labor members and four of its business members has turned from making rules to whittling Down a Large backlog of pay cases. Today Marks exactly nine months since president Nixon froze wages and prices and roughly six months since that 96-Day freeze was replaced by a second phase of More flexible i controls. Administration spokesmen say there a no proof they can to get inflation Down to Nixon a goal of Between 2 and 3 per cent by december. But most private economists and even the Price commissions own forecasters predict the rate will be running at something a Little higher than 3 per cent by yearned. In any Case those economic returns wont be in until months after next november a a presidential election returns and for the time being the trend is in Nixon s direction. In general Price increases seem to be winding Down after jumping up when the freeze ended. But the freeze created grievances that led to problems later. Unions that once had called for Price controls were enraged when the administration denied them pay raises written into their labor contracts. Some businessmen cried that they faced bankruptcy because their prices go up. Congress began watering Down the almost unlimited Power it had Given Nixon earlier when democrats thought he use it. Some major problems remain. Nixon a Cost of living Council in effect admitting that the Small wage Price bureaucracy can to control everything lifted controls entirely from an estimated 5 million Small businesses with 60 or fewer employees.
