TMJRSUY, JANUARY 2S, is>o,'T SIDE GLANCES By George Qar (OCR BOARDKG H01SE With Msjor Hoopk Coming of Age Tr.e extrenve ini;»5*tanefc of making rttsl aviaaor; ialer is emphs- sfaed by the v._y m vhich aerial travel ktejw OE e£j:_jiding. AH records for ps^icger, mal! and erpreas traffic from the great airport at Newark, N. J^ were broken in 1935. During the year, 265,000 passengers arrived or departed by eJr—fully 60,000 ntore than ic 1&S-5. Travel by &sr ha? K'ten growsiig morfe ajid rcore pona!?.r every year. ilvery major airport has recorded a Ete&cl* tEcrease. And it behooves both the siriliie irrar;agers and the federal government authorities to free that there is a correirionding rise in the standards of safety. C<ramerdai aviation has come of age. now. Dangerous Age In a midwestern city, & survey has beec mace of its first 1C traffie deaths in 1937, and gome «id facts were discovered. None of these victims was killed by a drunken driver; none died as a result of excessive spaed; and none was a child. However, • study of these eases uncovered the significant fact that 12 of the 16 wtforitinate.5 were pedestrians, and that (he average Ege of these 12 was 61. \ The survey, of course, covered bat a half month's fatalities; but the results emphasize that aged pedestrians are "marked for death"' unless they use extra caution in crossing streets. ^Tiether it is defective vision, inability to judge auto speeds,- or the inclination to 'save steps by jaywalking, that is responsible for this,high rnortsl- ity among the aged, is hard to^dets- mine. Whatever the cause, nieces, nephews, sons, and daughters may save some loved ones if they will assume the task of educating their elders to street dangers. = CCO/ C-Wpr-'F- A TX?2:= QSiJNVS AP£ llpffe IfSS^lSii e=oA£» A"FST,T-!S - ^S^; -•-•' I i- .TV~ - "• vfe." ^^-—» ;h^Ji.\. - :...'-... ,- - AWir-v i AiiinmU Transiiiit Several Diseases Af fee tiu "• \Vhen a man is depressed, he (ahes E drinfc- A soman goes out and buys a hat. —iily Dache, military designer. * » « Kes- York is restful; it's Uhe Holland.
