This was verified by Captain Ely of the Stillwater Police Department. The Journal account of the accident stated "The location of the accident was given to officials one mile west and one mile north of Perkins Corner." It should have stated, "The location of the accident was given by officials as one mile west and one mile north of Perkins Corner." The Journal apolo- gizes for this error.

At the present time, Blumer's Champlin is the only safety inspection station in Perkins, but according to Hurley Blumer, there has been no trouble obtaining a safety inspection at this place of business. Blumer said unlike many, he will even issue an inspection on Saturday if asked. The Journal talked with Joe Wall, assist, director of the Highway Patrol's motor vehicle inspection division, and he acknowledged that there has been complaints about most inspection sta- tions not giving inspections on Saturday and Sundays. He said this is especially a problem in the metropolitan areas where many people work during the hours inspection stations are open and have a hard time making connections. Wall said human nature being as it is, many people put the inspection off until the last week of the month or Dr. Ewing Attends Two Day Seminar Dr. R. K. Ewing of Perkins was among 200 other Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine and coaches attending a two-day medical education seminar held Saturday and Sunday at the Hilton Inn West in Oklahoma, City. This seminar was one of four sponsored annually by the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association to assist the state's osteopathic phsyi- clans in keeping abreast with medical advances in various clinical areas. "Office Orthopedics and Sports Medicine" was the theme of the seminar. Abe Lemons, head bas- ketball coach at the Univers- ity of Texas, was the featured luncheon speaker. the first week of the following month. This cre- ates all end of the month rush on inspection stations, and operators report a backlog of inspections. The Inspection Depart- ment Chief said there are 2200 inspection stations in Oklahoma and 51 in Payne County. The inspectors went through a 3Vx hour training program this year as part of the license to inspect automobiles as an official inspection station. Wall says they did not lose any inspectors because of the increased requirements. A crackdown is also underway on those stations that are not following the law in issuing inspections. An unmarked car manned by a policeman in civilian clothing is making the rounds of the state, closing down inspect- ion stations that are cutting corners and not following the law. The law was passed in 1969. The cost of the inspection is $2. and Wall said this is a bone of contention with inspection station operators. They feel the fee should be higher in view of the inflation since 1969. It will take 15 minutes t give a proper inspection, and mechanics are capable of making more than the $4 to $6 per hour produced from the safety inspections. The state takes 50c of each $2 inspection to finance the program. Vehicle registration has increased 20% since the inspection law was passed in 1969, yet there are the same number of inspection sta- tions, which is probably putting more pressure there, Wall said. The State official said there is a good chance that the inspection stations may be required to stay open on Saturdays to give the working man an opportunity to take care of the once-a-year chore on a day off. Wall said most law officers are lenient on safety sticker checks, and most generally, if a motorist is a week behind with his inspection he will receive only a warning if any citation at all. A Sunday newspaper article told of an Oklahoma City motorist trying for five hours to obtain an inspection in the Del City and Midwest City area. Wall said this was true, but inspectors had dosed down several inspect- ion stations in that area because of failure to follow the law. According to the newspaper account, the motorist visited about a dozen service stations and garages before locating one that could perform the inspection. Four of the stations said they had lost their inspection licenses, two reported they were swamped with other work and could not perform the inspection that day, three said they were out of safety inspection stickers and two others said their inspection mechanic was not on duty. Wall said his department is striving to keep motorists happy while at the same time keeping the inspection sta- tions legitimate. He said he sent highway patrolmen to safety inspection stations to give the operators a pep talk to take care of the motorists as quickly as possible. "I'm fully aware that we've got to make the process work as well as possible and keep the people happy, or the legislature could get in- volved. It's a good law and it will work efficiently," Wall said.

You can pick up your mail at the new post office Perkins postal patrons will pick up their mail at the new post office this morning (Thursday), Postmaster Frank Cundiff reports. The move to the new building will begin Wednes- day, with the mail not picked up Wednesday pulled from the boxes at the old facility and moved across the alley to the new building about 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. Those who have keys may pick it up at the new boxes Wednesday evening. Since the Journal is distributed by news stands only on Wednesday after- noon because the post office will be closed that afternoon for moving, most Journal readers will pick up this copy of the Journal at the new post office Thursday morn- ing (today). Many of the postal patrons received keys to their new boxes when they paid their box rent in July. However, those who have not yet obtained the keys to their new boxes can do so by calling at the clerk's counter at the new facility, Postmas- ter Cundiff said. The Iu][ding has been under construction since 1975 on the location of the old lumber yard on the corner of West First and Stumbo. The old post office building has been purchased by the Moormans and will be the new home of Viola's Boutique as soon as remodel- ing is completed. Lions name Bob Baker to serve on CAP Board Perkins Lions named a member of their group to serve on the Payne-Noble County Community Action Program board. Bob Baker volunteered to become a member of the board. The Lions club has been allocated a member to represent the Perkins area since the CAP inception. Community Action coordi- nates various poverty pro- grams in the Payne-Noble County area. The Senior Citizen Center has received funds from the organization. They will also coordinate the weatherization program, and have funds for making older dwellings belonging to elder- ly or residents on the poverty level, more habital. Some of this work is now underway in. Perkins. The TIE served the Lions during their summer outing from the regular Lions Den meetings. The organization served roast beef, potatoes and gravy, green beans, hot rolls, green salad, and dessert, at the Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. In other business, the group discussed enlarging the Lions Den, knocking out the wall between the Den and the vacant building on the south. It was explained that the heating and cooling system was installed with this in mind and is adequate to service both buildings. Harland Wells donated a 40' I beam for the project. President Bob Dickson said the club is growing and has about met its maximum membership in the present Lions Den. It was also pointed out -the large building would provide more adequate community service by providing a larger meeting place in the downtown area. Estimat will be obtained and a vote taken. Key Membership Awards were presented to Marvia Bowyer, Harvey Brixey, Marvin Davis, Richard Man- gold and Jerry Sadler. The award goes to a member who inducts two new members who remain in the club st least one year. Ralph Crane, Wilfred Overholt, Elmo Barnes and Raymond Johnson are on committee to prepare barbe. cue for the Lions Club members for next Monday's meeting. The location of the barbecue supper will be posted on the door of the Lions Den by Monday. En ro linen t dates set for P.
