The final count was one more than predicted by state safety officials. The latest death reported was that of Ray M. Sanders, 34, of North Sioux City, 3. D., who died in a Sioux City hospital Sunday of injuries suffered Thursday night when struck by a car at Blencoe. Stepped Into Path Monona County Sheriff Robert D, Muir said it Is believed that Sanders was hitchhiking on t h e south edge of Blencoe when he stepped into the path of a car driven by Dale M. Hanks, 33, of Loveland. , Four persons died on Iowa roads Saturday, including Mrs. Don Brooks, 45, Lombard, 111. She was killed in a two-car collision on Iowa 2 near Shenandoah. 2 Killed Friday Two were killed Friday, three Thursday and three others Wednesday.

With them, there's no time wasted on coffee breaks." The council started its Good Samaritan operations in a little office, financed by contributions from clubs.
