H. WASHBURN" A NEWS item furnished The Star by NEA. its feature service, tells fnc this asl Senator Caraway and Party Visit Hope on Thursday Woman Senator Accompanied by Secy. Whiteside, Mrs. Whiteside VISIT OLD FRIENDS service, tells me this astonishing story: (f) American railroads last yc«r kilted but one pnsscngcr for each 400 million pusscngcr-milcs. Commercial aviation lines killed a passenger each 24 million passenger- miles. But automobiles killed one for every 11 million passenger-miles. That means the railroads are 17 times safer than commercial airways —but that commercial airways arc twice as safe as traveling by automobile! What do you gel out of those facts? I Kct. this: That we arc a lot more careful about property than about human life. And when you stop to think about it. you know that is true. The railroads arc safest, not because there is less chance on steel rails for horrible accidents, but because the railroad train on which you ride represents an investment of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Somebody watches that valuable properly close-. Airplanes are second in safely because a big airliner represents an investment of pretty close to $100,000. Somebody is always around to look after a $100,000 property. But an automobile—well, an automobile can bo bought for a few hundred dollars. Humanity, alas, writes the ticket not in terms of humanity but in terms of property. • From Hope They Go to Nashville, Former Home of Whiteside Senator Hattie W.
