Many firms and some whole Roy Boll of osceoia. industries are striving to curb the carnage. Pvt Buddy Vau| NEW YORK (AP) - Just ahead lies the day when more Americans than in any other, f^a f^l*™,, jur period will check in their identities and become a vital,statistic. | ha , n Ol Dyess an d The National Safety Council says tht more persons are killed in traffic accidents on .Dec. 24 than any other day. Office Christmas parties often have preceded accidents — so, many companies this week are striving to tone them down. The liquor industry has long known it is accused of providing the cause for many traffic accidents — and is increasing its appeals for temperance before getting behind the driving wheel. The auto industry knows that the very number of the cars it sells means crowded holiday highways — and in its ne\V models is stressing- safety devices to cut down the number of fatalities. "Make It Coffee" The Fraternal Order of Polite, with 40,000 member officers across the nation, is urging upon weary shoppers as well as upon partygoers this slogan: "For holiday safety, if you take 'one lor the road,' make it coffee." From its Philadelphia headquarters, the order stresses that coffee combats fatigue and drowsiness, to which last-minute shoppers especially are prone. Kunning Ads The National Licensed Beverage Assn., with a membership of 50,000 tavern owners and operators, and the National Retail Liquor Package Stores Assn., with 30,000 retail liquor stores as members, have joined with Seagrams Distillers in placing ads in 76 newspapers with an estimated 16", million readers, urging that coffee be the for-the- road drink. The distilling company says hundreds of thousands of packets of instant coffee are being distributed to its retail accounts so that bars can offer a free cup to departing patrons. Coffee companies cooperate with local police in many areas to provide free cups to drivers about to take to the highway, or already showing signs of fatigue.
