9 JANUARY 1958 THE DRIVER'S SEAT Seventy-two st]ii;ii-i' niche ••• nf mi't.'il uri- fullyiiiK In HIP cause o[ driving safc'ly. Three new ideas using the license plate as nmiv tlian a means of automobile registration uve giiiuinn in many states. Simply by vuvisin;; of license markings elements to the plaie. tect the motorist ajiai drivers and nighttime vtilli and can help him in tim Die system ur ;nMnii; it can !>n>- 'Motorists are perpetually at the mercy nf other cars on the rnnd. BCT.-HISC some of these car;, are manipulated by risky drivers, there is wisdom in a -v,,tein of license plate attachments devised by author John Steinbeck. According to his plan, after three auto accidents a motorist will !»• sentenced to attach a .".vmlioj of hjs carelessness to his 1 in use plate. Steinbeck suggests a lame red "D" for Dangerous. The symbol would remain throughout a probationary period of perhaps three years and would In 1 removed only if the driver is accident-free during that lime. A second set of three accidents would brin;; a permanent license revocation. Tin marked license would thus ;i)«Tt other rlnvers lo brwun. 1 and the ihreat of license revocation would exert some disciplinary pressure on the The rising of the moon only adds to the dangers posed by the risky driver. Accidents on streets and highways treble after nightfall largely because of defective rear lighting apparatus or because cars parked in residential areas are often obscured by shadows. By shifting to the driver himself the responsibility of adequately illuminating other automobiles on the road in some unfailing way, the chances of avoiding night collisions can be increased. A license plate capable of reflecting headlights has been accepted as one answer in seven stales — North and South Dakota, Maine, Minnesota, Delaware, Louisiana and Wyoming — ant) those states already using the reflective plates report a considerable drop in nighttime rear- Complete Closing Out <fclliskrt«. tteftectivo ploteg increase visibility to 2,000 feet after sundown — a distance within which the driver is given sufficient warning of the presence of other cars. With standardized reflective plates, an automobile owner who is conscientious about the working order of his auto equipment does not have to be the victim of some other driver's laxity. But until infallible safety measures are adopted — what? The license plate can still be of value in the aftermath of resounding crash of two vehicles. When numbers reach the seven figure stage they must necessarily be crowded and the result can be confusing to the motorist. By replacing all-number license markings with a combination of numbers and letters, identification and mental retention of the plate is considerably elnce few« digits arc needed. More than half the 48 states now use both letters and numbers on plates. A little thing like a license plate can really mean a lot when used to its best advantage. Order Your 1958 Crop And Garden Fungicides Now Wangsness Advises S^jpettc County farmers and gardeners will have a better chance to yet the modern fungicides they need to control plant diseases in 1958, if they order them now, says County Extension Director M. C. Wangsness of Fayette. In the past, many local :pco- ple have waited until the last minute to order fungicides. When they do this, they usually do not give; the supplier time to send away for the hew* products. The buyer winds up taking his "choice" among the out-dated products. Plant Pathologist Mai Shurt- Jeff, Iowa State College, points out, for instance, that tremendous progress has been made in developing high quality seed pro- tectants in recent years. A few years ago there wore six fungicides for treating small grain, for example. Now there ;ire over 00, many of which have not been evaluated thoroughly. Seed pro- tectants are valuable in helping to produce better yields and .stand. 1 ;. Farmers, growers and fiarilen- ITS in this area should order their I95H fnnuu'ides now and avoid having I" use "out dated" models. Shurtleff says some dealers may be in the "horse and Im^Hy" flays <if chemical.;. They arc still ordering chemicals that have been nut-moded by new and better fungicides. Some of the "Old-timers" include conper-containint: fungicides such as Bordeaux mix lures and sulphur materials. These fungicides have been surpassed by new chemicals like /.ineb and caplan. To make sun 1 vou're yelling the best and latest chemicals, read the labels carefully, Shurtlcff advises. Drug, hardware arid garden supply stores selling fungicides, Shtirtleff points out, may stock as many as 10,000 or more items. Since they have so many items to think about, owners can't learn and know about the different fungicides. Instead of ordering the new and better chemicals, they are inclined to look at last year's supply and order the same ones. This is the main reason for thinking r\o\v about the fungicides you want for 1958. As soon as you decide, tell your supplier ;-,i> he can order them for you.
