PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, MARCH 1, 1974 From Ike Managing Editor's Desk.. Americans can be thankful for one effect deriving from the ....... ' gasoline = shortage. And they might learn a lesson from it. The new na- tional speed limit of 55- miles-an-hour has resulted in more than 800 fewer deaths on the highways in just the first few weeks it has been in effect. Many Americans consider the slower speed requirement oppressive, and they feel the same way about the necessity of confining the use of automobiles to essential travel. However, it was proved more than 30 years ago, that cir- Henry Lienhart Any size Bus available, from school bus to luxury air con- ditioned coaches, HOUSTON-BIGELOW BUS LINES ARROW COACH LINES 2715 W. 10th 666-9891 f TO ADVERTISE IN THIS SPACE - CALL - Tom Chipman 666-0286 Little Rock, Ark. 'All in the Family' Course Scheduled Little Rock -- "All in the Family" is the title of a Lenten series of programs to be presented by St. Theresa's Adult Education Committee. The weekly programs will be conducted in the parish hall following a 7:15 P.M. Mass each Monday from March 4 through April 8. Floor discussions after each presentation will conclude at 9 P.M. Topics on successive Monday evenings will be "Me and God," "Me, You and God," "Us and God," "Us and the Parish," "Us and the Rest of the World," and "We as One." cumspect driving saves lives. The city of Providence, Rhode Island -- a city of 200,000 persons -- has had a 25-mile-an-hour speed limit since about 1940. And there are big signs on all main arteries entering the city identifying it as "The Safest City in the United States." The gasoline shortage is a "mortification" most Americans dislike. Over the years, they have developed the idea that simply making ex- cessive speed legal excused them from responsibility for the welfare of their neighbors on the highway. Accidents were considered misfortunes, and drivers by-and-large never alluded to the fact that ac- cidents don't "happen," they are "caused." What the gasoline shortage has done is slow down America so that highway juggernauts are more readily controlled, so that the speed of automobiles more closely fits the speed of human reflexes. The solemn penitential season of Lent should be a good time for Americans to adjust to a slower pace. And voluntary as well as involuntary fasting and abstinence, resulting from food shortages and high prices, should teach an equally significant lesson. I I r PigSTS$ Call 374-6469 l;ontrols..

"Our Blessed Lord wants all of us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, minister to the sick and give drink to the thirsty. And so when you make your Lenten sacrifices, you not only show your love for other less fortunate boys and girls overseas, but for our Savior, Jesus Christ, Himself. "In His name we thank you. And now, to you, your families, your teachers and friends we impart with paternal affection our Apostolic Blessing: in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
