A "thorough study of traffic conditions and the causes and factors, involved in traffic accidents, leads to the inescapable con- elusion," according to Mr. Booth, "that this wastage of human life is absolutely unnecessary, and there i.s no valid reason why at least a life a day cannot be saved during the remainder of this year." It is the plan of the Highway Department to carry on as intensive educational program as possible during tliis sixty day period. These who have hud long experience in safety work declare that one of the first essentials in an accident reducction program is to make people conscious of what is taking place and to educate them along the lines necessary to keep them out of trouble. Mr. Booth recommends to schools that during this period they levise plans for a long time program of driver training. The Stale Highway Department has been cooperating with schools for several -years in the conducting of safety programs and in helping those who desire to initiate courses of study in traffic safety. The Arkansas Automobile club has also made available to those high schools of the state which will use the service, text books and facilities of the American Automobile Association for leaching good driving. Police Enforcement Enforcement is equally necessary and Mr. Booth stales that the Arkansas State Police are being asked to redouble their efforts in warning and advising people regarding incorrect driving practices and if necessary to bar from the road, those who are unwilling to drive with consideralion for the other fellow. The Highway Department also recommends that county and municipal enforcement officers give the fullest possible amount of time to the enforcement of sUite and municipal traffic laws in their respective jurisdictions. In speaking of enforcement of traffic laws, Mr. Booth points out the distinction between a traffic violator and those who violate the criminal laws of the state, and emphasizes the fact that the traffic violator is generally not a criminal, but frequently includes the very best citizens, and while he must be dealt with firmly, he must be dealt with as a citizen and not as a criminal. Enforcement officers who have had long experitnco in the traffic field state that this distinction is very important if there is to be the proper attitude of citizens generally for the observance of traffic laws. A large portion of the information which will be disseminated by the Highway Department during this campaign and which will be made available to the public through the newspapers and radio, will deal with practical driving information based around fundamentals found in the Arkansas Motor Vehicle Law, so that those who do not at present know how to drive as well as they should, may receive some necessary information during the period O f this campaign. While .setting as the immediate objective, the reduction of accidents during Ihe next two months, Highway Department officials point out that real safety on the highway involves a continuous program and that it is the intention of the Arkansas State Highway Department to give increased attention to the promotion of traffic safely during 11U38. Il is expected that the momentum i attained during the shorl period involved in Ibis campaign will make it i possible to effect a more substantial i reduction next year. According to Mr. Booth, courtesy, knowledge and .•••kill arc the fundamental clmnicler- i.slics of ,1 good driver and while some may bu lacking in knowledge and skill, the exercise of a great deal of courtesy will keep one out of trouble under many conditions. Mr. Bootii suggests a.s ii slogan for the campaign "Avoid accidents—drive with courlcsy, intelligence and skill." Senators Criticize "Mop^Creditors Declare Big Insurance Companies Lax in Investigation WASHINGTON.—(XP)—Senator Truman (Dem., Mo.), acting chairman of the senate railroad finance committee, critici/.ed major creditors of the Missouri Pacific Railroad Tuesday for what he said was failure to "go to the bottom" of the insolvent railroads' proposal for reorganization. The Missouri senator told officers of two of the nation's largest life insurance companies it was a "peculiar situation when all the big insurance companies and others having a financial interest haven't gone to the bottom of this reorganization plan. "It seems to me you should have had all the information on it before you made any deals.'' Truman commented after Alfred H. Meyers, treasurer of the New York Life, and Frederic W.

Ladders Are Made by Ozan Students Construction Studied by Ozan Third Grade Students Our .Economic Problems Editor The Star: Having read many articles of late pertaining to our present, economic upheaval it is but natural that I should wish to add a few suggestions. Through an intensive study of our economic condition by the Bookings Institute of Washington, D. C. aided by a grant from the Fullmer foundation of Pittsburgh, it has been established that during the period between 1922 and 1933 our three major industries, agriculture, mining and manufacturing, suffered a voluntary reduction of 20 per cent in output. It is, therefore, argued that had these industries continued at full capacity the purchasing power, as well as the standard of living among the masses, would have been maintained and our economic upheaval avoided. Always an advocate of maintaining equitable prices for farm products submit our cotton industry as an illustration. While production of foreign cotton is a serious problem that mal later demand legislation, it is a well established fact that the price of cotton in the raw is still governed by the law of supply and demand and that without means of control our present crop of 18,000,000 bales would have produced less returns to the grower than a 10,000,000 bale crop. It is generally conceeded that the above industries pay far more for labor than the producer gets. Is it fair to place a heavier burden on the producer than for less returns? It may be noticed that during a decline or rise there is little parity between tile rise or decline of cotton in the raw and in the finished article. During the depression when cotton was around five and six cents the cheap blue denim shirt could be purchased for 45 cents while during the life the the AAA and 12-cent cotton the same article could be bought for 50 cents, an increase of above 100 per cent in the raw with an increase of only 10 per cent in the finished article. It therefore follows that wert the producer in a position to furnish the material gratis this same shirt would cost the consumer 40 cents. The same with all cotton goods. The chief obstacles in the way of lower prices arc transportation, high cost of labor and machinery in manufacturing, the profits of the factory, iclent of the Metropolitan Life, testified that they were not familiar with some of the details of the erorganiza- tion plan prepared by Missouri Pacific. They appeared as members of the Stedmun Bondholders Committee, composed cliiefly of insurance companies holding Missouri Pacific securities. Earlier testimony showed the Stecl- mun Committee had prepared a reorganization plan of its own, but had agreed to accept the debtor's plan if other creditors did not oppose it. CALL NUMBER 8 NELSON- HUCKIHS ON WASH DAY Representative JACK WITT OZAN, Ark.—The pupils of the third grade in the Ozan Public School made some number ladders, last Friday which were rather attractive. Addition and subtraction combinations made up the rings of the ladders. In the time given for the making of! the ladders, Jim Robertson, Junior Patterson, Wilbur Cook, and Billie Joe Nelson climbed ladders of betkeen eighty and ninety rings without an error. Funny little brownies cut from construction paper were pasted at the tops of the ladders of the winners ant brownies stumbling from the incorrect rings were shown on the "ladders of 'till youngsters who failed to climb to the top. The third and fourth grades are planning to make some doll house furniture from corn stalks if the stalks are not too dry for the purpose. A number of the children have enjoyed making and playing corn stalk fiddles, for the past week. The prize for the best and most entertaining corn stalk fiddler goes to Theodore Hill, the youngest child in school. To .the entire group of school children, Theodore, drawing the corn bow across the strings thoroughly rubbed with bees wax, made his fiddle sound as he sang "Little Feet Be Careful." So sweetly, so sincerely, did the child sing that his school mates will long remember his song and his fiddle.

It was once hinted, but not generally believed, that the farmer was the backbone of the nation but of late it has been generally conceded that as the farmer prospers so prospers the nation. We have had much complaint of late of our 537,000,000,000 national debt. Distributing this debt among our 125,000,000 population we have a per capita debt of approximately $290. A two per cent federal sales tax would cost the average poor man with an annual expense of $500, 510 and up in proportion, and we would be safe in saying it would be paid within 10 years.
