COLOR.SLIDE FANS MOVIE-MAKERS: t a,nt in Key West had a 7 course dinner advertised for $1.15. My friend and I were curious so we entered this restaurant. We got a salad, spaehetti with sauce, a veg- etable, bread, butter, drink and dessert. That was quite a g~mmick but honest. I saw Polaroid Land Cameras at up to 50% off in Mia- mi. I found it paid to bargain at the small independent stores for souvenirs, by watching my friend Mr. Pulse haggle over a music box Upon checking up on speeds at Daytona Beach I wrote down the following results. March 15, 1910, 131 m. p. m.; ,Mar~h 11,,1959 231 m. p. h.; March 7, 1935 276 m. p. h. an da 1958 Pontiac hit 140.57 m. p. h. on Feb. 23, 1958. This )roves that cars could go many rears ago. The length of the beach in las't week's letter should have been about 23 miles long. Speaking of H. W. M. column o,n the tourist business in Jefferson Coun~ty I tl~nk it would be a good thing. You always hear us noted as a racetrack o wn but never for our history. I try to tell people about t;he section some but we need a real good promotion. I saw folders for Luray and other points of interest in Va. clear dow,u at Miami, Plor4da. "Why doesn't the cham,ber of commerce get out" pamphlets on our points of inter- est and have them distributed to main a~ttracfions at important 'tourist centers in the east. Of cour se local people would have to back t~is. Florida keeps t~he~r taxes low mostly due to their tourist busi- ness. I appreciated the editorial on their ought to be a law in your paper. I wonder how a racetrack licensed to operate at night ca,~ operate by d*ay ,too. That looks like a legal Yiola.tion to me. Speaking of H. W. M. Column sa~jing our economy is geared 'to t~he race tracks. I would l~ike to )Pint out that agriculture in Jeff- erson County is a bigger business and employs more people than e~- Vher race tracks ever will. :It is a fact to~ t,hat farmers use more gas 'than any other part of ,t'he U. S. Population, that is any special group by agric~lrure I i:]clude too the stores and feed mills t~hat de- pond on i't for most of their bus- iness. I believe tlhat ,primarily the race track affect us this way. PeP pie come to them by the thous- ands and buy no gas in W. Vs. bu cost the county plenty in wear and tear on the roads used. Beth tracks are owned by outsiders so most of their profits will go ou of state. Many local people lose their wages there instead of spend ing it i,n our local stores. This means children can go wfthout th~ngs that t~hey need. ~t means ,a )oor mo~l clim,wte ,too. We had one local bank go ,broke years ago when an employee embezzled mort ey ,to bet on the races. Many peo- ple lost life savings as a resul,t. Tha, t cou~ldn% happen again but people ca,n and do let their prop- er~y run down as ,the res~l,t of los mg money 'by gam, bling. I t~hink some people were sur- prised too by the supposedly trot- ting grack with its good clientle never materialized but instead flat racing track. I wonder too what happened to the 35 m. P. h. speed 1.imi,t on the Flowing Spring Road 'that the new tracks promi- sed to us? Yt seems like there is no speed limi,t at aH sometimes the,n of course it becomes a one way road from the race,track to rowte 340 when i,t lets out at night. I believe B~bby Cain is due a vote of thanks for banning park ing from .the no~t.h east corner of the old track up ~o route 340. I,t shou~ld of been done years ago. I,t should be banned to the dog farm from the corner of the old track and to the l~anson L~,ue as you go towards Ranson. Parking es- pecially ~bove the trailer park nex~t to ,t~he dog farm' creates a ser ,PUS traffic hazard. A wreck will undo~btedly ~e,~ul~ in time. He is due thanks for fixing the strerwh from ~he l~addock to the l%ailroad tracks as you go towards Ransom This stretch has been terrible for some years. St was a wonderful thing to put a stop sign where you come around the cor,~er of the old race crack to go towards rou~te 340. There was more ,than eleven wrecks ~t t~his locartion because people c~me ~:t on the Flowing Springs .l:~ad going towards rou- te 340 without stopping. I hope l~h~t a stop sign or t2) stop signs will be erected wt the nor~heaxt ma~in enrance to the new ~rack ne~t to the trailer camp and at t~he middle e~n,trance there too if possible. One is certainly needed wt ~he entrance or exit as the case may be ne~t to the tra~iler court. Yours sincerely, Angu~s W. ,McDonald Clay Street Harper's Perry, W. Vs. To ,the Editor of Splri,t of Jefferson-Adv~ea{e Charles T0~;n: W. Vs. Dear Sir: - When the Revised Code of West Virginia becam ef- fort,re an January 1, changing it's former rule forbidding any segmdn of our governme~nt from engaging in b~siness for profit or loss and expressly permfts ~ur- chase of Mutual Insurance by any segmen~ of our Government it clearly showed th,wt one of two things had h~pp~nned, el,thor ~ha~ the so called "Delegates" who were sent to Charleston ~o make Laws for us were absolutely ignor- ent of the d, ifference between Stock Company Insurance and Mu,tual Insurance or else they ;~vere u,nder ~Ohe influence of a powerful Lobby from ?~he 'Mu~tuals .to influence ~ts a~,ion. In any case their action was ~bsolutely ! Dictator it is time the people woke up and demanded a revoking of such Laws as the Revisel Code perm~,ts, since a Democracy means that. Already the Board of Edu- cation has made it pos.sible f~)r one Agency in Ranson to gobble all t;he School Insura,nce which by right belongs to the Agencies ~hich formerly wrote it, as they represent the County, being situ- ated in different parts of the County.
