n SATURDAY, SEPT. 23,1939. THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON. MICHIGAN. PACE FIVE ,tr'1 NEWS OF THE MOTOR WORLD "IN MY MERRY OLDSMOBILE" Sung by BING CROSBY Many Accidents Would Be Prevented if Speedometer Was Watched If certain motorists could bej prevailed upon to take more speed guidance from their' speedometers and less from snapshot judgment, traffic; safety would be materially ad-1 vanced. That at least is the 1 opinion of George B. Allen, chief engineer of the Dodge Division of Chrysler corporation, who, after investigating the matter, comes to interesting conclusions. "The modern speedometer is a reliable instrument," asserts Mr. Allen. "Some drivers seem to regard the speedometer asi something enabling car makers to prove that their cars can travel as fast as the operator may wish to go. Once curiosity on that point is satisfiled, the speedometer Is in many cases consulted less regularly, due probably to a belief that an ex- operienced driver can make fairly accurate speed estimates | without recourse to the instru-1 ment panel. In reality it Is the failure of many drivers toj judge their own speed and that of.other cars that causes them to lose their heads in tight situations such as present-day traffic can and does create. Three Senses "In studying speed impressions, you find that they are governed by three senses—sight, hearing, feeling.. When the; driver is in his seat, the wind- I shield, steering wheel and engine!

A reception for noise, the car appears to run, the Freesoil teachers will be held and a short program given. It will be necessary. be- retary vacant. Mrs. Ira Granger is treasurer. Mrs. George Rayle has kindly consented to act as chairman for the first meeting and arrange the program. The membership committee will be appointed Oct. 2, and possibly a ways and means committee for car slowly," he says. "The sound of an open engine exhaust, tailing on the ear, creates an opposite impression. Different Feelings "The sense of feeling also becomes an element in speed judging. A poorly sprung car, ori one with hard tires, joits the| passenger and thereby blurs hlsj vision. A small car is likely to transmit road shocks not noticed in a heavier car. For that reason a speed of 30 miles in the small car is apt to appear like 45 miles, whereas 00 miles in a large car is likely to give the impression of slower speed. "Habit is still another factor in speed estimates unsupported by the speedometer. When, after a drive through open country at a speed of lorty-five miles an hour, you enter a town and slow down to twenty miles, youj often imagine that you are traveling at a walk. Your senses had become so accustomed to, the 45-mile speed that the sudden reduction surprises and misleads them. ... "Fortunately we have a re^liable speed check in an accurate speedometer whose ..readings, consulted with regularity, keep us out of mischief into which we might get were we to rely on our own fallible ability to tell one speed from another.'' Reek School Special Meeting field At the special meeting called at the Re.ek schoolhouse Thursday evening, Sept. 14, the county school commissioner, Miss'Ger- trude Eastman, explained very clearly the plans of transporting high school students.
