Last week Lewis County -supervisors took a similar step when they named a committee to study the bingo question and the enforcement of the law that bans the game and to form a resolution which they will submit to the legislature, if approved. The convention in New York urged that the legislature and Governor Dewey submit the question to the public at a referendum. State bans on off-track betting, bingo and lotteries were called \demonstrably contrary to the will of the people.\ The resolution added that \the people re- fuse to respect them, violate them and conspire to violate them, and the widespread open disrespect for such laws en- courages disrespect for other laws.\ The law and regulation in question, the resolution added \are paiallel in result with the federal government's ill- faed experience with the liquor prohibition efforts and should be bimilarly replaced by regulation rather than pro hibition.'' Congratulation to this convention of policemen for their stand on this matter. A free citizenry will always arise against an unpopulor law. Private citizen may also submit their opinions on this siibject to their representa- tives in the state legislature. HIGHWAY HAZARDS, COURTESY: U.S. ARMY As the old saying goes, \there are two ways of doing things, the right way and the Army way.'' We saw grafIC- ally Saturday the Army way. With two large military trucks piling up orrNorth State street, injuring two men, and destroying private property, it was shown that who- ever is xn command of the troops at Camp Drum ha& little consideration for the taxpaying public and less for the lives that were jepodized by having a convoy on the roads during a holiday weekend. Had the convoy been on the move because of military expediance then none would find fault, but to have a reserve unit, who could have returned to their homes be- fore or aftei the -weekend, on the highways, threatening Every authority in the nation screams foi safety on holi- the lives of all other motoiists was plain negligence, day weekends and yells that we must stop this slaughter of Americans, yet we see the Army send out a convoy of trucks, trailers and guns to clog the highways, create haz- ards and generally foul up the roads.. We understand that the Army, or those in command of the movement of troops out of Camp Drum were requested by the State Troopers not to allow convoys on the road during the weekend.

LEARNING BY ACCIDENT As if we didn't have enough accidents last Saturday we almost v ere served up several more at the four corners on State street. When the power was turned out because of the accident on North State street, the stop and go sig- nal at the corner of State, Shady and Dayan streets went black and motorists went wild trying to beat their neigh- bors to the turn Both village policemen were on duty at the scene of the wreck of the Army truck so it was some time before a deputy sheriff arrived to restore any sem- blance of order at the intersection. At the same time a wedding party was using more gas than sense and kept driving around the village adding to the confusion. From this incident plans should be made to provide an alarm in the sheriff and village .police's office to show them -when the signal light fails. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of dented fenders. phine Dubard and Mrs Julia Sm- all Funeral services were held on Wednesday at 9 30 at the Virkler Funeral home and from St. Peter's church at 10 with Rt Rev Msgr. ome The East Lowville Home Bureau will meet on Wednesday, Septem- ber 16 at the home of Mrs. Louis Archer at 1 30 p m The Martinsburg Evening Home Bureau unit will meet September 10 at the home of Mrs Gilbert Thisse at Maitmsburg This will be a regular meeting Home Bureau Citizenship Lead- ers will attend a county session next Wednesday, September 16th John .
