According to Main, even if the
regular traffic signal turns out,
the Flo-Control unit will continue
to operate.

MAIN WHO HAS spent the last
four years perfecting his invention
claims the idea sprung from a
near collision with a truck at the
Washtenaw Ave.-Stadium Blvd.
Unaware of how much longer
the green light would shine,
Main decided to continue driv-
ing but half way across the in-
tersection, the light changed
and Main immediately slammed
on his brakes. The car sliding
on the slippery road narrowly
missed a truck coming from the
opposite direction.
"The Flo-Control will be able to
eliminate such near accidents as
well as the confusion and quick
braking that frequently occur at
intersections," Main said.
The local inventor was recently
invited to be a special guest at
the International Inventors Ex-
position in New York where he
demonstrated the device.
Plans are currently being made
to test the Flo-Control in many
principal cities throughout the
Bodet Urges
Youths to Fight
Tolerance Held Vital
For LastingPeace
"The psychological condition for
lasting peace will not exist until
every trace of racial discrimina-
tion has disappeared everywhere in
the world."
That is the opinion of Jaime
Torres Bodet, director-general of
UNESCO, as expressed yesterday
to the National Student Associa-
BODET CALLED upon the stu-
dent youth of America and of the
world to work for comradeship
and justice between races, creeds,
and economic and social groups.
"It is the student youth in all
countries that are most firmly at-
tached to the cause of peace, most
aware of the need for interna-
tional cooperation, and most con-
scious of the duties of world cit-
izenship," he added.
"BEGIN TO MAKE the world a
better place on your own cam-
puses," Bodet advised. "The quick-
est place to get results is at home."
"The aims and record of NSA
indicate that it is thoroughly
aware of this principle. I congrat-
ulate NSA, and hope that its ex-
ample is followed as widely as it
deserves to be."
"There are certain aspects of
UNESCO's work which your el-
ders in all nations seem unable
to grasp," Bodet pointed out.
"Promoting international under-
standing through closer contacts
between peoples is not the whole
of UNESCO's task, nor is it a
magic shortcut to peace," he said.
According to Bodet, sdcial ten-
sions such as racial prejudice and
discrimination within states inev-
itably generates tension between
states and thus become threats to
world peace.
"International cooperation alone
cannot remove these threats," Bo-
det said.

KANSAS SCENE-Frank Durler stands chest deep in standing wheat on his 1,100 acre farm near
Wright, Kas., as he checks moisture content of heads of grain before starting the day's combine
operations. On most days combining operations cannot get underway until noon because the wheat
heads are too damp to thresh out properly. Durler estimates his farm will yield ten bushels an
acre or about 11,000 total bushels.
