Watch Your Driving On Fair Days, Too One of the (iticcrwil things about automobile traffic *u the fact that whenever there is a spell of nasty winter weather, which coats Hie streets with ice and makes driving extrit- hazai-dous, one is almost certain to lind Hie accident rate dropping abruptly. One good-sized city gave a graphic illustration of this lust mouth. Us police traffic deiiarlmcnt is undermanned, and it does not ordinarily keep its traffic situation very well under control. Since the start of the year, fatal automobile accidents had been occurring at the rate of about one a day. _. , Then came a violent cold spell. , The streets were icy, treacherous; snow flumes lillcd the air, eultiiiK down the vision of drivers; ami iicdestrians alike, aiul adding nn extra risk to the situation. • -. * t » And immediately the city's, accident rate dropped to an asloundingly low point. Instead of killing someone every • day, its motorists killed no one at all— until the storm had passed and traffic conditions became safer. In this startling reversal of logic, there is a neat little moral for motorists all over the country. It is pretty clear proof that auto accidents do not come from dangers inherent in the now of traffic. They comq simply motorists and pedestrians take risks that they have no business to lake. When the streets arc dry, and every car can be kept' under perfect control, and drivers and pedestrians alike can see without difficulty in every direction—then is the dangerous time. Motorists drive too fast, they cut in and out of traffic lanes, they try to beat the other fellow across intersections. Pedestrians trust tu their nimbleness of foot to dart through lines of heavy traffic. The result, of course, is that many people get killed and a far greater number gels maimed. * * .' But when bad weather conies, so that it's hard to stop a car suddenly, and the footing is uncertain—well, then we get wise to ourselves and slop taking chances, and, as n result, accidents diminish. If we could take the trouble to be Fatal Relics of War Mines put into the sea during Hie World War still are afloat. A. Finnish steamer recently found one in the Baltic Sea and had it destroyed. Since the war one Swedish naval officer has I omul and destroyed more than MO •drifting mines—hideous engines »f death, waiting to slip into the paths of unsuspecting ship captains. That such hazards still on the high seas i.s rather shocking lo one's KCIIKC of security. Hut when you slop to think about it, the wonder is thai tin-re arc not more of them around Lu cause tragedies. Mines were lossed into the water in an indescribably prodigal manner during the war. When the armistice arrived, the allied navies spent months picking them up; but in the very nature of things it was inevitable that lliuy should miss a tfrcal many. Tho world really, is very lucky lhal these derelict mines have not proved u far greater hazard lo post-war ocean traffic. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark) The Editor'* Letter Box 1 <l ii ! ^~ *?

Ket to the Still Shipping Liquor The little inland of Aliqiidon. home port for a fleet of rum-runners Ihrongh- oul lhe prohibition era, is not yet lin- islicd with the task of supplying liquor for thirsty American citixens. Kxamiiiution tif Hie li«|iior import ligwes for December, recently released by the Department of Commerce, shows that this tiny island in that month, sent to Ihe United Slate;; distilled limiors worth §180,000 and wines valued at §131,000. Since the island itself ferments no wine and, distills no liiiuor, these stocks obviously originated farther afield; and one probably is doing the islanders no injustice by suspecting that to a certain extent they represent slooks • laid in in the smuggling days.- And one wonders: Will Mi<|iielon cease shipping liquor to the United Slates, once these slocks arc gone, or will it continue to maintain its place as a source oi' supply for lhe American market, making its shipments leg- ully instead of surreptitiously'.'
