TWO LIFE SAVERS 14-Algorid, (la.) Upper Des Meinei TtiMday, Aug. 15, 1967^ Two devices that could help reduce the number of Iowa traffic accidents and deaths during the heavy vacation travel and trips to county fairs and the Iowa State Fair are shown above. The Iowa Loss Prevention Institute said the SMV (Slow moving vehicle) emblem installed on tractors and other farm equipment will help reduce the number of accidents involving farm machinery, and wider use of seat belts will help reduce deaths in traffic mishaps.
