Courtesy In Traffic The conceited man has never IJCCM very easy to got along with, but !iu has not ordinarily been regarded <is a menace to' the safely of hi* fellows. Recently, however, Dr. Paul Sdirocdcr, Illinois slate criminologisl, told tliu Miil: west Safety Conference Unit the con. ceiled man is responsible for an enormous number of automobile accidents. Just why a swelled head should unfit a man for driving an auto is fairly easy to understand. Tts possessor lacks a normal regard for the rights of others, lie cuts in and out of Imflk lanes with gay abandon. He swerves quickly over in front of another machine without caring how that is going to iitl'ect the other fellow. When ho sees a pedestrian crossing the street ahead of him he toois hi.s horn instead of stepping on the brake. Worse yet, when he has caused an accident his conceit tells him that it was all the other man's fault. He refuses to feel any remorse over it, even when the accident has taken a life. He leaves..his fault uncorrccted—and so, Dr. Schroedcr says: "An appreciation of the rights of oth- '•• era on the highway appears to be a 'more important qualification for a driver than even normal intelligence." Digestion of this fact brings us, in '."' turn, to a, consideration of the whole „.-. question of courtesy on the highway; £ .and one is,c,ompolled to wonder if that •'." quality may not be the key to our whole Ira flic situation. Granted that there are too many cars on the highways. Gnmlcd that congestion becomes, at certain times and places, almost beyond endurance. Granted that there are some accidents that no amount of careful foresight would prevent. Does it not- still seem probable that ordinary unselfishness and care for the rights of others would cut the traffic toll down to a comparatively insignificant figure? Think over most of the causes oC motor accidents; speeding, driving in the wrong lane, using too-bright headlights, driving too fast on slippery or crowded pavements, "cutting in," defective brakes—aren't they all things that a little courtesy and forethought would prevent? Aren't they things that OUT OUK WAY simply don't hupixm to really cuiiiieous motorists? Of course, the chief trouble with all of this is that few of us are always constant in our behavior. On nine days out of fen we drive with due consideration for the rights of others; on the tenth day we let Ihings rip—and, tliu law of chance being what it is, we generally get away with it. Hut we don't always; .so our traffic fatalities run around 30,000 a ye-ar.—Hruce Cation. Do We Need a Third Parly Sonic of the brillaiit thinkers along political line.-; have declared recently that the United Slale.s nec'ds a third jxililical party. They assert that new ideas and ideals are needed, that a new outlook backed by plat forms radically changed from those of the old line parties is nicwsary. That i.s a matter for debute. That such.a tendency is liniling favor in some sections, especially in local elections, .seems apparent. Groping for a way to solve their problems, many politically-minded individuals have broken away from the old parlies and have succeeded in nominating and electing what may best be described as independent candidates. It is not at all unusual to I'md independent candidates fighting for office with choices of Ke- publicans and Democrats far behind when I lie ballots are counted. This at least .suggests that there is dissatisfaction with the established par- tics in certain sections. It doesn't necessarily mean that a new national third party will be the outcome. IJut it must certainly does mean that I he wise Republicans and Democrats have something- significant to think about when planning for Ihe future. Dorothy calls necking a "ixHly" offense.

CUBA'S WAIl MKSSAC.E On April 11, 1911, Speaker Champ Clark laid before the United States Coiigre&s, amid applause, a nii-s- sage from Miguel Coyula, speaker of the Cuban House ci ftcpre!.m- tatlvcs. regarding the Cuban declaration of war against Ourtmny. It read: "The of Representatives of Ihe Republic o[ Cuba, in declaring that a slate of war exists be- l\vecn Ihis nation and the Gurman Empire, resolved, nil members rising o their feet, and amid the greatest enthusiasm, to address a message ol confraternity to Hut body announcing the pride felt by the people of Cuba in iinUin;; their modest efforts to those ot thi ijrcat nation cuntcndiiiB (or the triumph of right and respect for the liberty of snuill nationalities.
