The mercury dipped to six degrees above zero for the second time within a week here last night to set another late March low temperature reading.
Iola’s “T-Men,” a volunteer group of local traffic monitors, held a meeting last night with Assistant Chief of Police Everett Shepherd to take a look at the results of their first month’s work. They plan to increase their numbers and continue the traffic monitoring program sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. When a T-Man sees a traffic violation, the offender’s license plate number is given to the Iola Police Department. Assistant Chief Shepherd sends courteous letters to the violators telling them what they had done and urging their cooperation in better driving practices in the future. Reaction to the letters was good in every case, Shepherd reported.
