Pre-occupation with alcohol as a traffic hazard means other factors that collectively cause more highway deaths are being ignored by safety said Richard Zylman of the centre of alcohol studies at Rutgers New N.J. Conventional wisdom holds that alcohol involvement in fatal crashes is 50 per cent or Mr. Zylman said. his research had shown that alcohol involvement may only be about 30 per cent. This means that 70 per cent of fatal crashes are caused by other factors such as poor lack of emotional problems and in- he said at the Traffic Injury Research Foundation conference. He termed biased data that indicate most victims of highway fatalities have been drinking. The percentage was in- flated because less than 70 per cent of crash victims are tested for alcohol and they-are the ones most likely to have been drinking. For tests were not run on victims of multi-vehicle crashes with the same diligence as those in single- vehicle crashes. victims who die in day crashes are not tested as often as those who die at night. Mr. Zylman made available copies of one of his published articles on the in which he assumption that because one had been drinking he must be responsible for his crash is no more valid than the converse assumption that if a driver was sober he must have been Research shows that among 680 drivers killed in multi-vehicle crashes and found not 20 per cent had been half of them heavily. As a the majority of those killed in multi-vehicle crashes who were found'responsible for the accidents were sober at the said Mr. Zylman. A level of alcohol in the blood of less than .10 per cent represents only a variable in most not the indisputable reason for he said. In drivers found with a level above .08 per cent can be convicted of impaired driving. Mr. Zylman said studies have shown drivers between 25 and 60 years old with blood alcohol levels of .05 to .09 per cent functioned better than drivers under 20 and drivers of more than 60 who had no alchol at all. Dr. H. N. head of the federal non-medical use of drugs told the conference there is urgent need for studies of the drug levels of highway traffic victims compared with levels in persons using the highways without accidents under the same conditions. SATURDAY Shadow of Palestinians hangs over peace talks WASHINGTON The shadow of Palestine's terrorists and refugees hangs shroud-like in the background as Henry Kissinger moves between Damascus and -working to bring about a ceasefire between Syria and Israel. High-placed observers here believe there can be no lasting accord in the Middle East so long as the Palestinian question remains unsettled. They insist that to ensure permenent any Arab- Israeli agreement must relate to the basic problem that was born with the Israeli state and partition 26 years ago. The basic issue itself has in- fluenced the current ceasefire negotiations. Israeli soldiers hunched in horror over their portable ra- dios Jast week listening to ac- counts of the Maalot school- house incident in which 21 youngsters died in the cross- fire between troops and terrorists. Shortly stories from Damascus told of the shock there as Israeli bombers struck back at Lebanese refugee camps believed to be sheltering terrorists. Some observers suggest an increasing mutual sense of distrust may be influencing both Syria and Israel in the Kissinger negotiations. Whatever the it be- came apparent shortly after Maalot that two major points remained to be solved on the road to ceasefire. That deep distrust remains between Syria and Israel on the Golan Heights is undisputed. Israeli settlers vow they will not be moved. Syria continues to call for a return of the land she lost in the fighting of and 1973. These are points for com- promise at the bargaining table once the guns are silenced. At the the major problems surround the size of the proposed United Nations buffer force and the size of the warring forces to be allowed to remain in the neighborhood. No matter what is decided in that Palestinian sympathizers it cannot affect the basic Palestine question. They argue that the Arab countries have not been empowered to decide the fate of Palestine and its people. they insist that settlement of the Palestinian homeland question is tightly woven into any over-all accord finally reached in the Middle East. From that the Palestinians insist in a voice at the peace table. Experts find it ironic that a weapon employed effectively by Israelis in their fight for a is the method chosen to keep the Pal- estinian demand constantly Take Off Fat With Home Recipe Plan Il i simple hon one mjv lose pounds of unsightly fal nghl in home Use this home recipe dietary plan II s no trouble at all and costs little .lust go to your store and ask for Naran Reducing Plan Pour liquid into d pint bottle and add enough grapefruit juice to fill the bottle Take two tablespoons a day as needed and follow the N'aran Plan If vour purchase does not show vou a simple easy to lose bulkv fat and help regain slender more pracelul if reducible pounds and inches of excess lat don I disappear trom neck chin arms hips abdomen calves and ankles just return the empty car- ton for vour monev back Follow this easy endorsed mam who have tried this plan to help bring back alluring curves and graceful Note how quickly bloat disappears how much heller vou feel More alive appearing and active HOUSE FOR SALE To Be Moved From Present Location Phone 757-2141 If you can wait 2 days Blow the whistle on a riot of rip-roaring bargains from an inventory of millions of Shoppers Stoppers start May 27 Simpsons-Sears SUPER SAVERS Merchandise on Sale Friday to p.m.and all day Saturday a.m. to p.m. Limited Quantities.
