ON the Sunday when America was celebrating the safe return of the Apollo 13 astronauts, a tremendous technological achievement, the World Cup Rally started from Wembley. Within a few miles of the start. British police stopped some of the competitors for “offences under the Road Traffic Act,” presumably that of exceeding the town speed-limit, as tells of thousands of solid citizens do every. day. They were absolutely within their rights in doing this. Nevertheless, the word that occurs to us is—pathetic. And a very poor piece of Police public-relations.
