My March editorial was ready for the printer and I had only a few f'mishing touches to add be- fore bringing it to be printed when out of the clear blue came the announcement that my very good friend. Harry Wible had passed away" on January 31 of a Lingering illness. Immediately I scrapped my editorial and am writing this in- steadiSoecause of my deep friend- ship with a WHOLE man. Such was Harry J. Wible, Lone Indian and editor of the Mount Pulaski, Illinois newspaper THE TIMES- NEWS which he published for some 39 years. He was 78 at the time of his demise, too early for such a f'me humanitarian who had dedicated his life to public and personal service to fellow- men. Whoever's life he touched, I am sure he enriched. It is not all people whose loss is irre- placeable. But Harry's was such a life. He never turned down a request for a reasonable assist- ante on any civic or organiza- tional projects. He was particu- larly interested in the youth of today and extended himself in their behalf at all times. And he was the No. 1 man in Mount Pulaski - a great leader of the townspeople. So much so that three years ago the Mayor there issued a proclamation that the week of August 20-26 be pro- dalrned "Harry J. Wible Week" in honor of Harry's 75th birth- clay, and the title of "Mister Mount Puiaski" was bestowed upon him. Not unlike many of the greats of our country, Harry Wible was a quiet man and never sought re- was for his endeavors. If what he did was appreciated, he felt that was payment sufficient. It was my joy to have him as a house guest a few years ago at which time he flew to Sheboy. gan to get acquainted and at the same time to enjoy our Brat- wurst Day. The first handshake with him endeared him to me and me to him. I believe the feeling was mutual. At one time, for many years, Harry printed LONE INDIAN MAGAZINE almost "at cost" and those enamel-paper 9xl2 editions still stand out as some of the best. He also donated many print jobs to help LI.F. mancially. He was so liberal that we lost our nerve to ask for anything more. We will always remember his many kindnesses. In December of 1963 he was chosen "Man of the Year" by the Lincoln (Ill.) Courier - a well deserved honor. And as founder of L.I.F. I would like to name him "MAN of the L.I.F."

Auto safety is everyone's concern. But its our business. And we think the attention that's being paid to auto safety now is a good thing. Because it will result in better driving for everyone. And, frankly, better driving for everyone means better business for us. We say Buick is something to believe in. That's why we're trying to make it easy to be safe by putting in safety features that work by themselves. You dont have to do anhing to make them work. Like side guard beams And the energy absorbing steering column, And the cargo guard between the thought it was a-sh, crov, d ,as SO small.

They start "working" even before you get in the car. But two safety features, two of the most vital, are worthless unless you do something first. Seat and shoulder belts Unfastened they do nothing. And you've seeenough statistics to know what a difference they can make. So use them. But thars not all you can do. Because the most ef- fective safety feature of all can't be added to our cars or anybody elses That feature is you. And the way you drive. Which should be defensively. And rested. And sober. Were all in this together. And together we ca solve the auto safety problem once and for all. And the time is now.
