Most conspicuous today among all the causes of accidents are hose associated with the speeding up of our traffic. The automobile accident problem is one which is giving increasing concern to doctors safety engineers, public officials, and all communities. Today we know that this is not one of those situations that will work themselves out by some law of fate. We have had motor cars for at least thirty years now, and the deatlis continue to mount. The problem is not one which concerns the city alone. The rural rates of accidents and denhts in traffic are steadily increasing. For example in 1933, thirty-five counties scattered all over the state of Illinois had a higher automobile death fate than Cook county, which contains the city Of Chicago. Everybody knows the rubber stamp remarks that are heard in every conversation—namely: "I't'J; the driver that is not insured who has the accidents;" "The older the 1 car. the more likelihood of an accident;" "Some people have all the accidents;" 'It's not ..Two Men Write Alaska's Drnmn Good books about Alaska are rare on the pttbli.ihing lists miwt seasons. MI it's a pleasure. 1 to discover two excellent volumes from the same house. Tho Caxton Printers. Ltd., of Cnlclwell. Idaho. The first is "The Story of Alaska" by Clarence L. Andrews i$-P. and a it proves to be. For Mr. Andrews has spent a cn.uirter of a century with his subject, and knows it' intimately, fro nithhe baronial days of the Russian fur traders to the modern problems uf the Matanuskii. Vitus Bering, a Danish captain working for tho Russians, first blazed the trail to Alaska more than 00 years he- fore Lewis and Clark crossed the North A.meric!in continent. Boring's adventure is the opening for Mr. Andrews story. From there he traces the rise of the Russians in 1784, through the days of the whalers and the trappers, to the American occupancy on Oct. 18, 18(17 is highlighted with all (hat happpcned along the trails of 'US. tells the stories cf the piohneer Yukon, the fight for a governmetnt, the building of rail- reads, thhe development of natural! resources, and even the saga of "Soapy Smith" and his Rang. Today, Mr. Andrews writes. "Alaska is still the great unexplotied, almost untouched storehouse of raw materials fur ihe United Slates." Mr. Andrews' books' will likely stand for a long time as the best exposition of this Alaska. Caxton's second book "Yukon Voyage" by Walter R. Curtin ($3.50).

CHAPTER IX yAGUELY troubled, Bob Tait went out into the alley nnd climbed inlo the rented coupe. He A'as certain that the janitor wasn't lying—which meant that Harris Rogers was. Either Rogers had managed to hnve a key made ivhich would fit the lock of Tail's ipartment, or he had a ring of ikeleton keys. j Tait shrugged. There was noth- ng to be gained in worrying about Harris Rogers now. The man-- iiger's reasons for wanting the corpse of Ludden Dombey to stay 4tiiet were good reasons. Good, (hat Is, for Harris Rogers. The ihing to worry about now, Tait (old himself, was the eventual fate at Myrna. He turned the car into the street, headed for an arterial which would take him straight to Headquarters. Inside the dingy, gray stone building he went at once to Feeley's office. That individual lolled in a deep chair, his feet on his battered desk, a black cigar stuck at an angle in his mouth, and his eyes wandering over the skyline beyond the window. "Well, well," said Tait jovially, "is this the way a dynamo of crime detection works?" Dannie Feeley swung his feet down and turned to regard the newspaper photographer with a fishy eye. "You," he said, and that was all. "No other. Robert Tait." "Sit down," invited the detective. "I want to talk to you." * * • , 'ROB TAIT sat down and smiled at Feeley in what he hoped was a very disarming fashion. "Dannie," he said, "I've got Mrs. Ludden Dombey." Not a flicker of expression went over Feeley's features. "I'm not surprised. And I ought to throw you in the hoosegow. I may yet. Where is she?" "She'll be here. I'll send her down. But I'd kind of like to know what the set-up is. Will you give her n brcnk?" For a moment Feeley was silent, Ho looked out of the window, studied a thin trnil of smoke from n streaked brick chimney. Then he returned his attention to Bob T;iit. "Listen," he said, "I like you. You've played square with me before, and until somebody proves otherwise, I'll do it again. But you knew we wanted lo talk to that girl. What was the idea of making her scarce?" "I didn't. The fact is, I've been tryiiiR to find her nil night. The kid is all upset. 1 had to convince her that she was making a mistake in running away." r-Velry grin n o d ironically. "That's putting it mildly. I gather, of course, that you don't think she's; guilty." "I'm not an idiot yet, Dannie, although I've been accused of coming close. She may bo—but I don't think so. But you can't tell mo that you've got enough to cunrinco you that she's guilty." "That's why I want to l.p!k tc her." l!c- fixed Dannie with a piercing gaze. "This isn't child's play, Bob. And I'm going lo put all my curds on the table. I'm on the spot with the chief. The chief is on the spot with the mayor—" "And tho mayor," put in Tait pleasantly, "is on the spot with the public. There's been a wave of crime, and the newspapers are asking why." "That's it exactly. So I'm not pulling any punches in this Ludden Dombey business. I've got lo find out who bumped him o(T. And there's another thing eating me, too. Leonard Mucy has showed up again." * * * "OpIIE devil you say!" Tait knew •^ Leonard Macy. He was a wealthy dilettante who interested himself in criminology. Macy was clever, too. Ho had a good mind and a lot of fancy, expensive crime-detecting equipment. He delighted in nothing more than showing up the police as a lot of blunderers. Feeley nodded. "Sure. He's interested. This kind of thing is his dish. Lots of publicity and all that. I'm telling you, if Macy turns up something important, before we do, it means curtains for me on this job." Tait took out a cigaret, lighted it carefully. "Then you'd let me help you?" "I'd be glad for it—if it's help you'd be giving. What makes you thinii you can?" "I'm pretty sure I can. But I svnnt n square deal for Mrs. Dombey. I don't want her made a goat because the department hasn't got anything tangible." Feeley nodded. "I'll do what I can. But don't forget we've a prosecuting attorney who's yelling for blood. If I know Barkley, he's already got a case against Myrna Dombey that would have a jury straining to convict her." "It's going to be tough, all right." "Tough is th'e word for it." Feeley leaned forward n little. "And listen, Tait, I'm trusting you. You're not to hold anything back." "Not a thing." Tait reached into his pocket, brought out Myrna's silk handbag and tossed it on the table. "That belongs to Myrna Dombey." Then he brought out the revolver, laid it carefully on Feeley's desk. "This was Inside the bag when I picked it up right after the shooting." Feeley turned slightly purple. "And you took it out of the bag, and have born carrying It around until tho fingerprints are all smeared!" "My theory is that the gun was fired from the bag, Dannie. Through an opening in the zipper. I don't think theru'd be any fingerprints." Feeley's thick fingers took up the bag. "Ifow'd you get it?" * * * HHA1T told him. Feeley listened attentively, and when the newspaper photographer was through, he said, "And so you think she didn't do it? You pick up her bag from beside her, and the gun is still warm, and you figure she's innocent?" "Yes, Dannie. I think somebody got hold of that bag, slipped the gun into it, and then tossed it onto the table again after Dombey was killed." *'H sounds fine. How you going to prove it?" Tait was silent. Then, slowly: "I don't know—yet." "II you don't have Myrna Dombey down here by noon, I'm going to get out a warrant for you, and it won't be a comic sheet, either." "She'll be here, Dannie. But you've made your agreement. I'm going to help you, and in return you're not going to use Myrna as copy for the newspaper boys." Feeley nodded. "I made tho deal, and I'll stick to it—until I'm convinced you're rooking me." Tait got up. "Okay, then. You'll see her here at 12?" "At 12. She'd better be here. If she's not, I'll have you brought in. And you'll be up on the third floor where the old cells are."

Makes no provision of any kind for "maintenance funds" to preserve our state highway system. At no place in the entire proposal is maintenance even mentioned. This now amounts to around $3,000,000 each year, but from now on "bond boys," speculating bankers and reael estate promoters are to receive it. The state's road system will go to ruin in a few months. Assumes all bonds of the private and semi-private road (street) improvement districts, adjacent to Little Rock, promoted and developed by the Justin Matthews Company. These and similar districts have been "outlawed" under all previous road or refunding uCts. Surrenders the state's sovereignty and immunity from suit thereby making it possible for any '"bondholder" to completely tie up the stale government by suit. Provides for increased gasoline and auto license fees as well as increased property (real and personal) taxes to meet added bond payment if necessary. Makes it mandatory to send "state highway funds" daily to St Louis and New York bunks without security to, or control by the state in any form. Proposed lo "refund" all highway indebtedness ($150,000,000) at rates much higher than adjoining states are now securing on similar obligations. This will cost the state more than $1,500,000 a year in interest charges alone. Instead of lifting the mortgages off th eproperty in the road districts it places a super mortgage- on all the property 'real and persona!) in the state and in addition irrevocably pledges "all of the suite's resources" for payment and gives bondholders right to collect all increases by suits. League officials asked that their analysis of proposed Amendment No. 28 be not entirely depended on but urged all citizens to ask any able attorney about the several objectionable features in addition to the ones pointed out.
