For souvenirs for the guests small notebooks were assembled and cut to the proper size as they watched. Both the Cold Storage and Leader office appreciated the visit from the school and cordially invite them in again. In some cities, obstruction of the signals by trees is a serious danger. In many situations, constellations of street lighting lamps, and advertising signs confuse the drivers. Although the traffic light may, be actually distinguishable from the surrounding galaxy of lights, there is no assurance that the driver will distinguish it when his major attention is necessarily drawn to pedestrians or tangled traffic.

The burning out of the i lamps inside the signal fixture, _ _ —,. . ! through which one or more of Dry Law Election the sides are rendered "dead" for one of the colors, is a frequent | hazard of some seriousness, since the driver, seeing no light, may I assume that the signal Is not op- I erating, and that drivers from all directions are on their discretion; Orders Issued for The Absent Voters' Will Apply on June 20 Instructions as to conduct of the special June 20 election on whereas the driver- on the cross street has a green signal, and prohibition repeal were sent out „'. «<T Si i to county auditors Saturday by P rocee " s accordingly. were shopping In Shenandoah last! afternoon visitors In the home of Wednesday. • Gene Bryaut and family.

The auditors were told that registration official? should hold registrations prior to the election, that the usual law on absent voters' ballots will apply, that dou* ble election boards cannot be used, and that any special police employed at the polls must serve free or at county expense. Any notary may take acknowledgements for absent voters, but ballots must be mailed In or else election boards cannot be used and received only by persons deputized by the county auditor for the purpose, the Instructions said.

Unfortunately, drivers are confused by the frequent occurence of red lights which are not intended as stop signals. Such a confusion of lights are found in many places, and should be abolished as soon as possible, for aside from the actual confusion at these points, drivers are being trained to disregard the true Big' nificance of the red. It IB a menace under modern conditions to have red mean anything other than stop, and stay stopped. Much of the present confusion and difficulty is due to the pro-j cess of improvement, by which better signals are slowly replacing the poorer types, necessarily Involving a medley toy a while.
