DRIVE SAFELY ON HOLIDAY WEEKEND GIVES TITS FOR HOLIDAY DRIVING The Christmas weekend may cost Iowa eight lives lost in trai- flc accidents, State Safety Commissioner Donald Statton warned today RETIRES PUBLIC AUCTION Farm located 7 miles south of Lansing, or IV2 miles southwest of Thornton's Corners, or 18 miles east of Waukon (follow arrows), the following property: Wednesday, December 28 STARTING AT 12:00 SHARP 25 HEAD BROWN SWISS CATTLE 11 4 4 Brown Swiss cows, to freshen in next month.

FULL LINE OF FARM MACHINERY Be prepared to take action if that car coming off a side road pulls out into your path. Don't take for granted that a truck or bus driver whom you are following has made the right judgment when he indicates that it is safe for you to pass him . . . wait until you can see your way clear yourself. , Of course this "defensive" ap- I proach should be applied to driving during the entire year. However, special skills are necessary for driving in snow-and-ice weather, Daters points out. Just as peopde walk on ice, but don't run ... so cars should keep moving and gain momentum gradually without sudden changes of speed if they are to avoid spinning out of control, he says. Drivers should realize that road conditions in snow-and-ice demand longer braking distance to stop a car. Daters recommends two methods for stopping on Ice. A driver can "fan" or pump his brakes gradually to a stop or he can brake slowly without locking the wheels. Pumping the brakes helps to keep warm tires from melting the ice i in one spot, resulting in locked wheels or skidding. Drivers should slow down before coming to a curve, then gradually accelerate as they drive around the curve. When a car skids, the driver should turn the car wheels in the direction of the skid to straighten the direction of the car. Parking a car during snowy weather presents a problem to drivers who continue to spin their wheels after they discover the car is stuck. Daters advises drivers not to wait for a rut or groove to develop before they use sand or other material to get the car moving. As soon as the wheels start to spin, the driver should use sand, or a shoved to free them. There is not much difference in the effect of snow tires or conventional tires when stopping on packed snow or ice, Daters says. Chains are the most helpful in maintaining traction. They also help in city driving because they reduce the braking distance more than snow tires. Disadvantages of chains include the tendency they have to make a car slide sideways. They are also noisy, hard on tries, not as convenient as snow tires to put on, and wear down quickly when used on dry pavement. Equipment which drivers should keep in car trunks as a precaution against getting stuck in snow and ice includes sand, which is inexpensive and easy to use; strap chains, which can be slipped around tires for temporary traction; a snow shovel to dig out of an en trenchment; rubber floor mats or carpets to put under whels for traction; specially manufactured products with a salt base to work more quickly than sand to melt ice; flashlight; windshield scraper; tow chain, and flares. Carrying 150 to 200 oounds of sand in a car truck will improve traction on ice and packed snow, Daters says. Recently car designers have considered the problem of traction in winter weather. Some care have individual axle suspension to help the car stay on the road better. Others have "positive" traction, which allows one wheel with good traction to help get a car "unstuck" although the other wheels may be spinning. Daters explains that it is to the driver's advantage to heed highway patrol warnings to stay off roads because of bad weather conditions. Unnecessary traffic hampers snow clearance and hinders people who must travel, he said. Concluding, Daters urges holiday drivers to take at least a flve-min ute break after every second or third hour of constant driving.. ONE-HUNDRED According to past records, Stat ton said, approximately half of the fatal accidents during the holiday period will involve a driver or pedestrian who had been drinking. "Looking ahead to these needless deaths during a religious observance seems almost like a concession to insanity," Statton commented. He said the expected death toll could be almost eliminated if drivers would accept their moral responsibility to safeguard themselves and others on the highway. Since the first of the month, the department has been conducting a "Thou Shalt Not Kill" campaign as a means of preventing traffic fatalities during the holiday period,. "We know the theme of this campaign probably won't impress the cyniical or the sophisticated," Statton said, "but we hope it might reach some people who will be tempted to drink and drive." Statton said he feels there could be no more vicious violation of the, spirit of Christmas than drunken driving. He warned that the Iowa highway patrol will be making special enforcement efforts against drunken drivers during the holiday. Last year, 7 were killed in Iowa traffic accidents during the Christmas holiday. In 1955, nine lost their lives, according to safety department records. Statton urged all drivers to reduce speeds and observe all traffic laws and safety precautions during the weekend "as the most realistic means of meeting the moral responsibility for safety." He warned motorists to change their driving habits as weather or road conditions change, arid to be especially cautious during times of poor visibility. Ed WesthofT, of Petersburg, retired recently after 30 years of bringing in the cream for the Petersburg Cooperative Creamery. The only day he has missed was one last winter when the winter's blast forced him to forego his "appointed rounds." He recalled that the winter of 1959-60 was the wox*st of all. CROCHETS Carl W.
