Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 1, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 98 Associated Press and United Press International Fun Lease Wires The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 1 1960 7c a Copy Paper Consists of Four One No 200 Traffic law violators under air surveillance havent a chance By WILLIAM EBERLINE DBS MOINES you ever stand and look down on a boys electric train layout Thats about what the Iowa countryside looks like from 2500 to 3000 feet in the air And way up there is the place to go if youre looking for traffic ly of certain types Its an Iowa Highway Patrol axiom that one airplane is worth 10 patrol cars in spot ting traffic law violations for the protection of the motoring public Thats why on any day when the weather is clear the patrols four airplanes spend hours in the sky study ing traffic on the roads below Your inquiring reporter wanted to see for himself how the system works He went along on a Memorial Day flight in a patrol plane a Cessna 175 At the controls was Patrolman Dan veteran pilot of World War II who has been flying for the patrol for about four years Fosters Memorial Day as signment was to check traffic south of Osceola on Highway 69 At the north edge of Osceola you see the first violation of the car traveling about 50 miles an hour going through a stop sign without even slowing down You cant nail this one because the car gets lost from sight under the trees lining the towns streets Over Osceola Foster estab lishes radio contact with high way patrol cars Then he heads south to make pass aft er pass over Highway 69 What youre looking for is any type of traffic passing on a yellow line speeding a truck following an other truck too closely the er ratic driving that may denote a drunk and so on This is one of the busiest jobs in the patrol says Fos ter and you see what he means as you watch him work You fly along the highway eyes riveted on the road be low Its strictly flapsdown flying You hold your speed to 80 miles an hour or less in work like this A tancolored car pulls out to go around an automobile pulling a house trailer Foster reaches for the radio A car just made an illegal pass around a house trailer taking about 200 feet of yellow line he tells his fellow patrol men waiting up the highway Its sort of tancolored The black one with the red up holstery ahead of it clipped the yellow line too but not too much You keep your eye on the two culprit cars Then you see a patrolman on the road motioning the drivers to pull over The driver of the black car will get a warning ticket Foster explains The tan one took a lot of yellow line so hell be arrested Foster enters the informa tion on a log sheet kept in case he has to appear in court As you take another swing over the same yellow line you realize it marks not only a long curve but a fairly steep hill Look at that1 exclaims Foster and you see a blue car sailing around two other ve hicles The line is yellow all the 300 feet or more Foster quickly reports it and a few minutes later you see a patrol car pull the blue one to the curb in the outskirts of Osccola Its easy to figure how much of a yellow line a driver takes in an illegal pass Foster says You measure by the center stripe of the road It is marked by 20foot white lines inter spersed with 20 feet of un marked highway Count the lines and spaces a car goes by and you have the answer Now you go to a marked stretch of highway to make some speed checks with a stop watch The traffic isnt moving very fast today Foster com ments after several checks fact the people seem to be doing a pretty good job of driv ing on the whole I think Ill sit down for a bite to eat says Foster and suddenly you realize its 6 pm and you are tired You head for the airport in Des Moines thinking of home and supper Not Foster though Hes planning to eat then hit the air again as long as daylight lasts For a highway patrol pilot theres no letup in the holiday war on bad driving until it gets too dark to see GI Bill has 15th birthday By JAMES MORISSEAU New Yorjc Herald Tribune News Service NEW YORK The current commencement ceremonies ai colleges and universities across the country will mark the 15th anniversary of a phenomenon that nearly revolutionized Amer ican higher education the G I on campus By a very rough estimate some 50000 of the 490000 stu dents who will receive degrees over the next few weeks at tended college under the provi sions of the Korean War G I Bill They represent a vanishing breed of student the relative ly more mature and serious veteran of wartime service in the armed forces who attendee college because the nation felt that education was a legitimate part of a veterans rehabilitation for civilian life THIS IN 1945 was a revolu tionary concept Ever since the Revolutionary War when vet erans got musteringout pay and pensions wer provided for the disabled the United States had followed a tradition of special benefits for veterans But education did not come into the picture until after World War I and then only for the dis abled Nearly 189000 of them benefited under the postwar vo cational rehabilitation program Then in June 1945 Congress adopted Public Law 346 the Servicemens Readjustment Act opened up a whole range of educational opportunity for the returning veteran The GI Bill provided up to four years of education for ev ery one of the millions of World War II veterans They had a choice of institutional onfarm training apprentice or other on thejob training elementary and high school level education or a chance to go to college SINCE THE GI Bill became law the armed forces have dis charged 20 million servicemen Nearly 11 million have received educational benefits and of these one out of every three entered a college or university This massive invasion of the American campus got its real start in the fall of 1946 the be ginning of the first full college year for which the great bulk of World War II veterans could ar range to enroll By the following September one out of every two college students was a veteran and three out of four men stu dents were veterans The educators when they con templated the pospects in 1945 had feared the impending inva sion They were concerned over the possibility that the veteran would not adjust to campus life that he would find it hard to re turn to his studies and in some cases even that he would have an adverse effect on campus morals AS IT TURNED out their fears were unwarranted The veteran not only made a good student he made a postive and lasting impression on Amer ican higher education The postwar phenomenon of the married veteran on campus with his trailer coloniesand washlines full of diapers set the precedent for todays rash of campus marriages The Korean War veteran also has left his mark on the campus Dr Gideonse said But his im pact was not as great primarily because he was younger than his World War II counterpart All training benefits under the Korean GI Bill adopted in August 1952 will end Jan 31 1965 SUBMERSIBLE PALS

especially great he said where a turn is re quired by one of the major movements through the inter section and where this move ment is confined to a compar atively narrow openings beyond the
