Let's not forget, in planning it, to plan what must be done to the car before you go, and to make a list of safe driving practices on the road so you get to your destination and back without incident. Everyone knows these essentials, yet it does not harm to go over them. Here's a check list: Brakes. Are they "soft"? Do they pull left or right during a quick stop? They need repair or adjustment if your brake pedal is less than two inches from the floor when you come to a full stop. Wheels. Tires should be balanced and in good con- dition. When the tread on your tire has been worn to a remaining depth of one- sixteenth inch, it's time to replace it. Windshield wipers. Are both in good condition? Fan Belt. Carry a spare, It's a long way to a garage on many interstates. Points and plugs. Get them checked before you go. Make a list of items to be turned off before you go, and services such as the newspaper to be stopped. Put your valuables in your safe deposit box. Give a key to a friend or a neighbor so your mail can be taken in, and let the police know you're going and who has a key to your house. If you're going to be gone for more than a week or so arrange to have your lawn mowed. A neglected lawn and piled up mail or newpapers is a sure tip-off to an experienced burglar that you're away. When your driving: Allow at least one car length between you and the car in front for every 10 miles an hour of your speed. Take a break every 100 miles or two hours. Walk around; relax. Know your car's speed in feet per second. To get it, multiply your speedometer reading by 1]/2. Itpays to know, too, the stopping distance for cars. On a dry road, at 30 miles an hour, it will take you 88 feet to come to a full stop, in- cluding reaction time. At 60 miles an hour, stopping distance increases to 366 feet and at 70 to 532 feet or one-tenth of a mile. When following a car at night, switch to low beams when you're at about 100 yards behind the car you're overtaking. If your towing a trailer, load it so that 60 percent of the total weight is in the front half, using the trailer axle as the fulcrum point. This gives maximum stability for both trailer and car. Keep your safety belt fastened at all times, Remember, most accidents happen within 25 miles of home, and more than half of those causing injury or death involve speeds of less Conservation News A. B. Rogers, who has headed up the watershed protection and flood prevention program for the USDA-Soil Conservation Service (SCS) in Kentucky, retired after 35 years of service on June 29, 1973. In making the an- nouncement, Glen E. Murray, SCS state con- servationist, said Rogers has given leadership to the water resource develop- ment program for the past 17 years in the Com- monwealth. During this time he directed the spending of approximately $24,000,000 in federal money on community projects that included flood prevention, water supply, fish and wildlife, and recreation, according to Murray In 1957, three years after the U. S. Congress authorized the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (PL-566), Rogers was assigned leadership for its direction in Kentucky. Thirty water resource development projects were created throughout Kentucky under his leadership. These projects protect thousands of acres of land from flooding. They also established 12 water-based recreation and fish and wildlife areas, and created I0 municipal and industrial water supplies for Kentucky communities. Three Kentucky projects developed under Rogers' direction received national recognition as model water resource developments. They were selected as watershed projects of the year by the National Watershed Congress. than 40 an hour. In urban traffic start your turn signal at least 100 feet from the actual turn. Finally, teach the kids that if it's dark green, shiny, and has three leaves at the end of the stem, give it a wide berth. It's probably poison ivy. The Valley Creek Watershed in Hardin County near Elizabethtown was the most recent watershed to receive this distinction. It was selected this year. The Mud River Watershed project in Logan, Todd, Muhlenberg and Butler Counties was awarded the honor in 1964, and the North Fork Little River project in Christian County received the same recognition in 1967. Kentucky is the only state that has received this recognition on three dif- ferent occasions. Rogers started with the Soil Conservation Service in 1938 as an agronomist in Buford, Georgia. He was headquartered at Spar- tanburg, South Carolina, for two years and then came to .................... Kentucky early in his conservation career. Rogers assisted local people with resource programs throughout the Com- monwealth including Hazard, Somerset, Owen- sboro, Edmonton, BurkesvilIe, and for the past 17 years in Lexington.
