DOVISI^ Omo^SA!rtliPA¥ t JAJWAfcir 2, 1954 BEAD REPORTER CLASSIFIED ADS Traffic Death Toll Dropping In Ohio, Nation By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Apparently determined hot to repeat their ignominious record of the Christmas holiday weekend, Ohioans were driving with more caution during the New Year's holi. day period. During the Christmas weekend, 37 Ohioans lost their lives in accidents, 30 of them in traffic, tfie third highest toll in the nation. Ohio was running in seventh place this time. With the New Year's weekend almost at the half-way point, seven accidental deaths have been recorded by The Associated Press, six of them in traffic mishaps. At that rate, the state will fall far short cjf the 45 accidental fatalities tabulated during last New Year's holiday. The 1953 traffic total for that period was 37. Deaths by days: Thursday Robert M. Hutchinson, 60, Akrofl, when his automobile struck a bridge abutment near his home. William Edward Wagner* 17, Rt. 1, St. Henry, when a car in which he was riding went off Ohio 119 four miles east of Fort Recovery. Friday Edward Simmons Jr., 23, Cincinnati, burned to death in a fire in his tenement building. Jacob Hood, G2, Ybungstown, struck and killed by an automobile as he walked along Ohio '7 near the Mahoning County line. ' Raymond V. Jacobs, 18. Canton, and Marine Pfc. Nick Albert, 18, Canton, struck~~and killed T5y~an auto 'in Canton. Hursel L. White, 23, Toledo, when his car hit a standing tank car two miles south of U.S. 23 at the Toledo Terminal Railroad , tracks. The nation's traffic death toll over the New Year's weekend holiday was running behind the Christmas total by at least 100. There were 136 persons killed in highway accidents since the survey started at 6 p.m. Thursday (local time). In the-corresponding period for the Christmas holiday the toll was .237. The violent deaths since New Year's Eve was 180. Thev included 24 persons who perished in fires and 20 others who lost their Jives in miscellaneous accidents. The 180 corn-pared to 285 in the same period during the Christmas holiday. The final Christmas traffic death total was 523. The Christmas total is included among the National Safety Coun, oil's estimated 38,000 persons killed in traffic accidents in 1953, -the same as in 1952. It was the first year since 1949 that the toll did not increase. The council .said 1953 had the lowest mileage death rate in —^hr-hfstory of traffic accident records. It was estimated at 6.9—the number of deaths per 100 million mi'es. The council had estimated 360 persons would be killed in motor mishaps during the Naw Year's weekend ending midnight Sunday. However, Ned H. Dearborn., coun-' cit president, said if the present rate was maintained for the rest of the holiday period the toll would be, under 300, the lowest New Year's traffic death toll since 1949. : "Apparently the shock of the heavy Christmas holiday traffic to)} plus the incessant emnihasis placed on safety by press, TV and radio has sobered the New Year holiday drivers into better traffic behavior," Dearborn said. There 1 were 407 traffic deaths for a four-day New Year weekend las-t year while the record tor four days was 611 in 1951-52, A non-holiday death test survey, from 6 p.m. Dec. 3 to midnight Dec. 6, showed that 310 died in traffic accidents, 33 in fires and 89 in miscellaneous accidents, The death toll by states listing traffic, fires and miscellaneous: Arizona 1 0 0; Arkansas 110; California 12 1 1; Connecticut 3 0 l;FIorida 903; Georgia 330; Idaho*! 0 0; Illinois 12 3 0; Indiana 1 0 0; Iowa 3 0 0; Kansas 0 0 2; Kentucky 2 0 0; Maine 010; Mary. land 2 1 Q; Massachusetts 510; Michigan 12 0 2; Minnesota 400; Missouri 221; Montana 102; Nebraska Town and County The Weather OHIO FORECAST Pair, becoming: rather windy and mild today, high in 50s.
