The State Police also continued Xo war on motorists who drink and then drive, by arresting a~ total of 77 drunken drivers, just two, under the record figure of 79 set during 1959. ', The month of May was the re- cord one for apprehension of ~lrunken driyers with a total of 15, while August had 8 and Feb- ruarY and June seven for each month. July was tile best month with only three being arrested. Five were arrested on this char- ge during the n}onths of March, September and October. Route 340 Worst Again a total of 38 accidents, while U. S: Route 340, West of Charles Town, had 31 and included in this figure were two of the county's four fatalities. State Route 9, South of Charles Town had 299 accidents; 22 oc- curred on State Route 51 between Charles Town and the county line near Middleway; another five oc- curred on State Route 48 between Kearneysville and Shepherdstown and five on State Route 45 be- tween Shepherdstown and Mar- tinsburg. A total of 43 accidents were also investigated by or reported to State Police which occurred in the municipalities of Shepherds- town, Harpers Ferry, Ranson and Charles Town. Once again the weekend proved to be the most dangerous days ~Once again U. S. Route 240 and nights in the week on the East of Charles Town proved to ]oounty's highways with a total of be the county's most dangerous ]52 accidents occurring on Satur- ,section of highway, with 100 of the 270 accidents occurring on the short ten-mile stretch be- tween Charlc~ T,,~n and th~ Vir ginia line near Harpers Ferry. State Route 9, North of Charles Town and Ranson, proved to be the county's second most danger ~)us stretch of road in 1960, with day and 50 on Sundays. A total of 37 occurred on Fridays; 36 on Mondays; 32 on Thursday and Tuesday was at the bottom of t2c list with 27. August was the worst month of the year for accidents with 36, while Dec. had 31. A number of the December accidents came, however, as a result of weather and road conditions. Yes, in spite of the more than 56 hours .per week which the four local State policemen spent on police duty, there was still a lot of misery and trouble on the county's highways, and much of it could have been prevented with more safe and sane driving. The report also lists a number of other interesting statistics which show not only the police were on the highways, but doing various types of other police work along with extensive road patrol. For instance a total of 108 in- vestigation reports were made; 1,123 warning tickets were issued 28 license revocation orders were made, a totar of 25 stolen motor vehicles were recovered valued at $30,100 nad another $1,359 worth of other stolen property was loca- ted and returned to the righful owner. The report also shows a total of 119 felony cases and 713 road law or ]=isd~mcanor~. A t~tal of 630 miles were travelled by the police in transporting prisoners and 402 hours spent in giving op- erator's examinations. Another 2,692 hours were spent in the police headquarters making re- ports, etc. and 5,284 hours were spent on road patrol. Investigative work other than accidents took up 2,676 hours of the policemen's time and 144 hours were spent on weight de. tail. School bus inspections re, quired 28 hours, safety work 22 hours; Court 260 hours; e~corts for funerals and various func- tions 11 hours; 48 hours, at ath- letic events and 30 hours in trans porting prisoners. Another 325 hours were spent on special events, 446 hours on tother events and 82 hours in as- sisting the State Road Commiss- ion trucks. County's Economy FROM PAGE1 Reininger said foreign compet- ition has not only seriously dam- aged the gas cock market, but it has also now dipped deeply into the market for fire protection tings. Other Benefits In his annual report to the em- ployees Reininger pointed out that in addition to the hourly rat.e paid .to them the. company spends "another 84.41 cents per hour for it's 'fringe benefit" pro- gram. And most of these benefits have been given the employees entirely voluntarily by manage- ment, Reininger said. Included in the fringe benefit program are such things as bon- uses, paid holidays, life and hos pitalization group insurance, a pension plan, paid vacations, Soc- ial Security, State Employment Security, Federal Unemployment Insurance, W. Va. Workmen's Compensation and uniforms, work clothes, etc. Each employee received a thorough physical examination at company expense and through the cooperation of the state heal- th department, the Mobile X-Ray Unit spent one half day at the Powhatan plant to give the era- ployees an opportunity to have a free chest X-Ray. Also on Sept. 26 a general pay raise of two cents per hour was given all employees on the pay- roll. Seventy four of the employees are now included in the combinat ion insurance and pension plan and six more will become eligib- le in 1961. Reininger told. the employees he has appreciated the pleasant industrial relations that have been evident in the plant during the year of 1960. And, he said, "I hope the monthly hot lunches held during the Summer, the an- nual picnic, and the Christmas banquet have been enjoyed by you and your families. He further stated that the company is glad tb provide these and we welcome your suggestions for their im- provement." New Cashier From Page 1 of Directors of the Bank of Mill Creek, W.
