BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Clark (~'ford Robert Kennedy Stephen E. Smith Sargent Shriver Lawrence O'Brlen WANT A FEDERAL JOB?--These are the people to see--they're appointee screeners in the upcoming Kennedy administration. Clifford is the president-elect's transition chieftain, Robert Kennedy is a brother and was campaign chief, Smith and Shriver are brothers- In-law and were campaign workers, and O'Brien was campaign organization chief. Blue Cross To-SIale Case For High CourI The state supreme court has ordered Blue Cross officials to appear Friday at 2 p.m. to show cause why the court should not issue a prerogative writ en- joining Blue Cross from making certaii3 rate increases in its con- tracts. The action followed filing of briefs and petitions by Atty Gen. Leslie R. Burgum, who has re- quested the writ. Friday's hearing is the latest round in the battle between A. J. Jensen, state insurance com- missioner, and the Nerth Da- kota Hospital Service Assn. (Blue Cross). The attorney general's office, on behalf of Jensen, had sought an order in Burleigh county dis- trict court calling in Blue Cross to show why it should not be permanently enjoined from rais- ing its rates. Judge W. C. Lynch, in a rul- ing announced Oct. 10, held that the district court did not have authority to consider issuance of a prerogative writ asked by the attorney general Judge Lynch said only the Supreme Court could issue such a writ. In effect, the ruling threw the case out of court. Blue Cross raxs- ed its rate as of Sept. 1. The attorney general's office then took the case to the Su- preme Court. Blue Cross contended in the district court proceedings that it was not actually in court be- cause no summons or complaipt had been served on it. The attorney general insisted that procedure was not neces- sary in seeking a prerogative writ to enable a state officer to carry out his duty. A prerogative writ involves the sovereignty of the state. In law, the prerogative writ dates back to early days. The writ is defined as justified only as an extraordinary power {preroga- tive) of the crown or state. AERIAL HUNTING SEASON OPEN North Dakota's aerial hunting season begun on Dec. 1, announc- ed Game and Fish Commissxoner I. G. Bus. The hunting of predatory ani- mals from the air is legal only during the months of December January, February and March. Although a permit to hunt from the airplane does not cos1 anything, such a permit must be obtained from the State game and fish department before in- dulging in aerial hunting. Both guner and pilot must post a $100 bond when the permit is obtain- ed. Both pilot ,-rod gunner must be. residents of North Dakota, since aerial hunting is restricted ~, only residents. Complete regula tions governing aerial huntim, are available from the depart- ment. Last winter North Dakot;, had 70 active aerial hunting teams. ROldlqR$ IN THE W141~ 140~E--Esther C~veland, !

Safety Salting Cm Reduce Winter Traffic Hazarek ]Prompt and efficient snow and Jee removal with safety salt (rock salt), if it reduces traffic delays but one hour per storm in' the Imow belt of United States, means a direst annual savings to the public of an estimated $5oo,ooo,ooo.oo. This impressive finding is based on results of a recent au- thoritative survey in New York City and includes the losses in- volved when winter storms delay pa~enger traffic, truck ship- merits, refuse collection, fire pro- tectiou, medical service, and utility repairs. In addition, there is the tre- mendous ton of injuries and property damage resulting from winter accidents, costing the na- tio~ another estimated one bil- lion dollars annually. Safety salt is an economical and efficient de-icer---one pound of salt will melt 46 pounds of ice at 30 degrees Fahrenheit-- tcklay is the accepted method of combatting winter hazards. More tha~ 2,000,000 tons were used last winter alone to protect pedestrians and passengers. Salt is the most efficient and most economical method of ice control, as proven by repeated scientific teets. It is only in recent years that ice and snow control techniques have been perfected to the pres- ent peak of procedure now em- ployed by most progressive city governments. Previously it was thought that abrasives such as sand and cinders offered a supe- rior alternative and better trac- tion for cars, trucks and buses. But now it is recognized after extensive tests that safety salt used by itself is the best method. Past experience showed that sand andcinders not only clog- ged sewers after storms but also lacked any melting action. Consequently, modern meth. eds call for 100 per cent use of safety salt which penetrates the Ice, bores down to the road sur- face with a. corkscrew action, and then undercuts the frozen mass with brine which melts the bond between ice and pavement. Detroit, long one of the lead- ers and pioneers in the field of ice and snow control, has made several exhaustive studies with the following conclusion stated by the Engineering Society of Detroit: "Public safety through the safe movement of traffic should be the parmrmunt compelling force in ~any choice of de-icing ,method or material It is the opinion of this committee that the continued use of rock salt is by far the best procedure and is inthe best public interest." Substantiating the Detroit engineer's emphasis on traffic safety in winter is the alarming fact that more than 1,700 per- sons are killed and 174,000 in- jured on snowy and icy streets each year. Furthermore, this situation is drastically affecting" the cost of auto insurance premiums which last year climbed to the fantastic figure of 5 billion 800 million dollars, a record increase of 509 mflliolt from the preceding year. Results are dramatically shown in New York City records. In the six-year period from 1930 to 1936, before salt was used there was a yearly toll of 21 deaths and 1,635 personal in- juries attributed to skidding ac- cidents. In a ten-year period after New York City employed salt, the annual average fell to nine deaths and" 736 injuries despite the greater number of cars and drivers. The importance of ice and snow control nationally is indica- ted by statistics which reveal that 30,000,000 persons drive to work, two-thirds of the nation's freight is moved by motor trucks, and farmers depend on trucks to transport 80 per eenb of all agricultural commodities from farms to initial markets. In addition, when shoppers find it very difficult to get to and from the stores, the sale of mer- chandise drops about 50 per cent. In a city of 2,000,000 population for example, this loss amounts to approximately $760,000 per day or 26 million dollars per year. Added to other losses re- sulting from storm delays, in & city of this size, total losses in- curred amount to 88 millio~ dol- lars a year whereas the cost of snow removal and ice control is only $875,000 annually, or ab~dl: 1 per cent.

A combination of selling price and pounds sold determines how much money a producer will make. Regardless when you market livestock, shrinkage is going to cut down your profit and may even mean the difference be- tween a profit or a loss. Here are a few good practices to remember when marketing your livestock, whether it be yet this fall or anytime of the year for that matter.
