In speaking of the reckless automoile

Mayor Cojpway explained: "We
gj. can't permit you to drive around here
and endanger lives of the people. A
man who will go out here on the

loose, hasn't any mercy for himself
or for anyone else."

Lieutanant Wayne Shuttlesworth,

in the army, participated in nine
major engagements and was thrice
wounded, told the Fairmont Rotarians
at their weekly luncheon today

on record as protesting against the I
proposed increase of telepohne rates I
in this state. A nfolution to this I
effect, introduced by Hotarian Wiegel,

brought out that the Fairmont Business
Men'B Association has already
filed a protest against the proposed
new rates, and that the special committee
appointed by the Chamber of
