If all the editorials and all the speeches, spoken and written on the subject of highway safety, were collected in one pile the summit would probably reach the height of the bodies, collected in one heap. Neither broken bodies, sorrowing hearts or warning words have been powerful enough to stop the slaughter that takes away one hundred Americans every day.

As long as faster cars are built there will be greater speed than brfrre a-id as long as individuals delight in telling of record trips in better time the laws on the books will not stop the death list from t mounting.
