Raleigh. April 19. In addition to
lavelling lfltooo miles, stopping 18-
123 cars and trucks and arresting
•72 drivers for major violations of
he highway and motor laws, the
*tate Highway Patrol collected $39.-
16 in revenue for the State and
ounties. either from tax evaders or
rom fines and forfeitures, the report
or March, issued today by Chairman
B. Jeffreys of the State Highway
’omniission, shows.
Os this $39,446 in revenue collected
s a result of the patrola activities.
18.981 went to the county school
unds from fines and forfeitures, the
aiance going into the State's general
r highway funds, not a penny of it
:oing to the highway patrol, Jeffress
minted out.
f the 972 arrested by patrolmen in
larch 107 were for drunken driving.
70 for reckless driving. 113 for ex
essive speeding. 135 for using im
iroper license tags. 7-1 for improper
ights and 477 for miscellaneous of
enses. Os those tried In March. 843

A total of 15.910 violations were
loted by patrolmen and the drivers
stopped, most of them let off with
warnings. The lights of 7.375 cars
were fixed at filling stations and
lekets for defective lights issued to
he drivers of 735 additional cars.
Tickets were issued to 388 drivers
with improper license tags and to 548
with no license tags. A total of 287
trucks were weighed, of which 252
were found to be overloaded.

«*s are aware, of the diplomatic and
consular services.
The'coneular service which is com
•uercial. is much the larger, but the
high .pay. goes to the diplomats, who
are .political.
Aft ambassador's annual $16,000, it
is true, is insufficient to keep him in
ambassadorial style at most posts
But of what value Is an ambassador,
in this day and generation, anyway?
Not 16 cents worth.
A consul has his uses. He looks
after routine matters of international
trade which have to be attended to.
The government, to be sure, has more
consuls than It needs. Secretary of
State Stimson himself refers to “some
15” consulates which, he says, could
'easily" be dispensed with.
Still, here and there, at strategic
points, they are necessary manned
by perhaps a quarter of their present
forces, to avoid overworking.
Ambassadors and ministers are in
a different classification.
Time was. in the era of slow com
munication. when a corps of diplo
mats, resident in foreign capitals, un
doubtedly was essential.
In the present period of unlimited
conservation by long distance tele
phon, if ned b. a diplomat's sole func
tion is to act as a messenger boy be
tween his office and the chancellory
of the country to which he is ac
credited -and to he ornamental.
A consul or a vice-consul or the
consulate's colored doorman would
make just as good a messenger, but
a consul generally is not rich and
cannot maintain a swanify establish
ment to entertain visiting Americans.
The state department shaved Its
estimate for the 1983-33 fiscal year
We wish to express our sincere
thanks and appreciation to our many
friends for the kindness and sympa
thy shown us during the illness and
death of our behoved wife and mother
and also for the many floral designs.
