(JUNE.) T, oocoen «. 'Mr. Million' to Die On Schedule, Body Says of U.S. Traffic CHICAGO, Oct. 31. (/IV-Traffic deaths on the nation's highways are mounting as expected, toward the one million mark, the National Safety Council sakl today. The council announced the total number of deaths for the past nine mouths of this year—20.030—which Peron to 'Stump' Argentine Areas President 1 Takes Leave to Arouse Country for '52 BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Oct. 21. (IP) —President Juan D. Percn took leave today from the Argentine presidency lie has held for five and one-half years to arouse the country into choosing him again for the 1952-58 term In the Nov. 11 elections. Stepping temporarily Intr Pcron's place aa chief of state was the provisional president of the Senate, Bear Adm. Alberto Tessaire, chairman of the PcronisU Party and former minister of the interior. Political elides said Peron will u*e his leave for a quick swing around the provinces. HB reportedly IK worried over the lack of popular response to hb party's electioneering, especially since many candidates for congressional seals and provincial governorships are Tirtually unknown. They were handplcked by Peron and his witc Eva. In closed meetings with the supreme command of the Peronlsta movement. Pecon was granted leave of ab- Mnee by an extraordinary session of Congress on Oct. 11. The leave can extend to April 20, 1952. pushed the grand total sine* the advent of the automobile "well past 900,000." That leaves less Ihaii 10,000 to go before the millionth traffic death is recorded. The council said Its earlier estimate that the millionth fatality would occur during the third week' of December was ua- chimged by the latest Ilgurcs. September alone accounted for 3.G50 persons killed in traffic accidents. A factor in this total—the highest for any month since September, 1041—was the highest Labor Day traffic deuth toll on record. The nine-moiitli total of 26,630. was eight per cent higher than for the same period in 1950. "The millionth death is approaching right on schedule," Ned H, Dearborn, Safety Council president, nalci, "despite the most intensive educational campaign by the National Safety Council and others ever conducted. "Eight months ago, when we first announced the probable date, there was time to do somethinK about it. Now the time for effective action has passed. "All that remains is the shrtmo of a civilized nation which can accept tills terrible blight of death, injury and suffering without any widespread effort to prevent it." Last year's toll on the highways was 35,000. That was the highest total since 1941—the all-time record year for traffic deaths—39,969. For the first nine months this year, the council said, only 11 of 47 stales reporting has fewer traffic deaths than last year. Thirty four had Increases and two had no change. The council said records from 420 reporting cilies showed a decrease of five per cent from September, 1950. Indicating that the biggest. Increases are in the open highways and rural areas. For the nine months. 13 of the 429 cities had no-death records.
