of memories that will be lasting M|d
Within the next few weeks ev-
ery Bradyite is going to have to
take on himself the responsibility
for safe driving more than ever
Police Chief Dorman Gibbs said
Monday a number of additional
yield signs are going up through-
out the city as well as others to
replace stop signs.
These signs leave it up to tho
driver as 'to whether he can make
it when he pulls into an inter-
section, Gibbs pointed out. And it’s
his fault if something happens.
“If the driver collides with
another car when he goes through
n yield sign.” the chief cautioned,
“he didn’t yield the right of way.
He’s definitely at fault."
There will be no rolling through
■ stop signs, thus leaving room for
argument. It will eliminate many
other borderline cases common
with stop signs, the police chief
Gibbs saiti he personally favors
yield signs far above stop signs.
Some of the plnces for the signs
have already l»een picked, but more
are being chosen.
Plenty of competition is assured
for the July Jubilee’s three-day
race meet opening here Sunday.
Every stall has been reserved
since June 15, "and I’ve had to
turn down 40 to 50 other horses,”
Track Manager Jack Locklear said
Tuesday. “But they’ll probabl./
come anyway and try to get u
stable elsewhere around town,"
Last year Locklear wrote
out entries for 178 horses on
the first day, “and I think
there will be even more this
year. We’ll have the pick of
the best horses available in
this section. . . .
“It will be the biggest race
meet in the state."
