Allen's Alley These days everything is tipsy- turvy or helter-skelter. Contrast this with other days when time slipped past unhur- riedly and you awoke in the morning assured that everything was in its proper orbit. Of course, the fact that I was a kid in the - as they say - good old days, makes all the difference in the world. Now, time is $-rantic, ways are changing and we adjust to newer ways. Some people fail to ad- just and fall by the wayside. Problems these days seem enormous and fi;e paths to their solutions are fraught with pit- falls. Indeed, some of the ques- tions loom so laregly upon our world, there is despair over there ever being solved. These prob- lems involve us all, they affect us all, and no*. all of us can be satisfied. Frail men of flesh and blood must come up with the answers to these massive questions. There are grave questions such as: When the energy runs out where do we get Is it criminal for man to dig coal out of the ground? Are we preserving too much land in a wild condition for the benefit of only a few people who will ever see or use it? Is there such a thing as last- ing peace for everyone or is it only a mirage on a dusty des- eat? Can man look beyond his nose and eventually travel among the stars? Or is he doomed here on Earth, just another piddling little colony of bugs waiting to be squashed underfoot? O~airdy big questions, aren't they? But how about such mundane questions as making a living, residing in peace and quiet, and enjoying a certain well-deserved and needed serenity? Equally big questions, aren't they? It's all in how you look at mat- ters. The big questions and the nagging li*tle problems - all must be solved and men and women o differing abilities will solve them - in one fashion or anoth- er. Some of my ttnnato plants have been nibbled to shreds - indeed, only the stalk remained. There were the prints of deer in the garden and presto - it appeared logical that deez had eaten my tomatoes, This is a grave matter. My first inclination was to shrug and ignore it. My second thought was to sue the Wyoming Game and Fish Department for deer damage. My third thought was - ah, the hell with it. Bu I'll find the an- swer one of these days. After all, I'm frail and I'm flesh and blood. Or was that skin and bones? Except for a late afternoon rain, the weather cooperated with warmth aad sunshine ,Saturday am the Sundanee Commercial Club staged a successful Crazy Day promotion. Most business- men participating reported a suc- cessfifl promotion.

D Driver Badly Injured As Diesel R,g Crashes A rash of accidents on county highways over the weekend kept State Highway Patrolman Bill Wright busy as he investigated four accidents. Most serious accident occurred on Wyoming 24, four miles east of Alad~h Sunday afternoon, where the driver of a tractor- trailer rig was seriously injm'ed. Wright said Roe B. Ring, 47, Salt Lake City, Utah, was the driver of a 1973 International truck tractor, owned by Garrett Freight Lines. Jim Russell, 50, also of Salt Lake City, was the co-driver. The rig was eastbound when it went off. the right shoulder and over a bank with .the truck and trailer rolling ~ree-fourths of a turn. Russell was thrown from the cab and suffered minor injuries. However, Ring was trapped in the cab of the truck. Wright said the Stmdance-Crook County am- bulance and a f~re truck also an- swered the call. The roof of the truck cab was cut open in order to ~ree Ring. Ring rv.ceived a broken arm and leg, a broken vertebra in his back and head injuries. Both men were taken by the ambul- ance to .the Belle Fourche Hos- pital and were later transferred to a Rapid City hospital. Russell was released after an overnight stay but Ring remains hospitalized. A Moorcroft youth was cited into court following a Saturday accident near the west 1-90 in- terchartge ~t Moorcroft. The 12:- 30 p.m. accident irrvolved cars driven by Colleem Marl 27, Bil- lings, Mont., ~ Clinton D. Reynolds, 17, Moorcroft. Wright said Reynolds was west- bound on the old 14-16 highway and was making a fight ,turn on- to the 1-90 service road. It was raining heavily at .the time and the patrolman said the Reynolds c_&r slid i~to the other lane of the service road and struck the Marr car. The Malt cm was stopped at a stop sign waiting to turn onto the old US 14-J6 highway. There were no injuries but both ve- hicles received major damage. There were three passengers in the Mart car. Wright said Reynolds was cited into Justice Court. for speed too fast for conditions and for im- proper driver's license. Two other accidertts occurred Monday, both west of Sundance on 1-90. There were no severe injuries. The first accident came at 12:- 05 p.m., 21 miles west of Sun- dance and involved a 1974 GMC pickup driven by James Shulze, 16, Newcastle. He was pulling a trailer owned by Frazier Amusements, Phoenix, Ariz. Wright said the eastbound ve- hicle were off the right shoulder and rolled ~ a turn into a drainage ditch. Extensive dmn- age was caused to the pickup but the .trailer broke loose and did not overturn. Monday's final accidertt came at 5:55 p.m., 1S miles west of Sundance. David Clernerrts, Wall, S.
