One of the unsung heroes of the Christmas shopping season has got to be the traffic cop. In this case it's Sgt. Burl R. Statler. Tuesday afternoon he manned the corner he has appeared at regularly during the shopping season, conducting the traffic through one of Cape Girardeau's busiest intersections--Broadway and Main streets. At times, Sgt. Statler was virtually up to his ears in traffic, though he unsnarled the autos with the grace of conductor Leonard Bernstein. (Gordon L. McBride photos)
