ENJOY THE WORLD'S FINEST RADIO MA VICTOR 3 SOUTH FEDERAL YOUR OLD RADIO OR PIANO " IS WORTH UP TO $50 IN TRADE ON THESE POPULAR METAL TUBE RADIOS WITH EXCLUSIVE "MAGIC-BRAIN" AND "MAGIC-EYE." TERMS AS LOW AS Situation as Worse Than War. 'Worse Than Wai-" is the title of an article by Mrs. Alex Miller, Iowa's secretary of slate, printed in a recent issue of the Clubwoman, describing Mrs. Miller's campaign for highway safety in her state. The Clubwoman is the official publication of the General Federation of Women's clubs. Mrs. Miller points out in beginning her article that "death by automobile was so common it had ceased to be big news and the state of Iowa sat calmly by while annually there were slain upon her Deautiful roads enough persons to jopulate a good-sized town." She :ound that while drivers are poten- j'al murderers or suicides, even the worst of them do not plan to break ;he law, but having been permittee! to run wild, they do break it. Every man is sure that he is a good driver. He admits that he takes some chances, but he figures that he will continue to get by. He is sure it will always be the other fellow who will be killed. Her Horror Grew. "Day by day, my horror grew," Mrs. Miller writes. "Friday night 1 would sit in my office with my motor vehicle superintendent, Mr. Wai- ace, and wonder where, in our state, were the people who were lealthy and happy in their homes, who would be dead by Monday. And with Monday came the answer, the casualty list, usually without even leadlines. If one wishes to make a sensation when he dies, he must choose a less commonplace method. 'Is it not incredible that women always rebellious at the price of war, shuddering even now at the possibility of its recurrence, should lave been so long oblivious to the death spectre of the highway ? Even now he is grinning and rubbing his hands, taunting the war demon as he points to the reckless driver on the jloody highway. 'There,' he sa.ys, goes my real ally.' For the spectre vins. even when he loses. He plans ,o kill, of course, but when he :eosn't quite make it, he dooms his lapless victims to a far worse fate. Army of Maimed. "While the army of the maimed is ar larger than the death list, yet 6,000 persons were killed by auto- nobiles in America last year, and in he last 15 years a third more than were slain in her wars for all time. We are now told that a. family hav- ng three children may expect, un- ess the situation changes, that one will be a highway victim. 'How strange that we could have jeen so blind. The situation which night have been prevented is most lifficult to cure, and curing it is the Jiggest job before this ration. "It is the mother, the teacher, he clubwoman- who will lay the oundation in building public sentiment Universal safety consciousness is the key to the situation. The condemnation of public opinion will orce the reckless driver from the highway. Start With Children. 'Education can be achieved by strategy, and that means by starting with the children. If you wish to arouse interest in a parent, just sell your proposition to his child. Teach ;he youngster that the golden rule .pplies upon the highway. Show him that only the rude and boorish assume they own the road, blaring 1 their blatant horns at every person who happens to be ahead of them. "Pioneering in highway safety .vork in Iowa, we are teaching the jublic that the patrolman is the riend, not the enemy of the traveler, and that inflicting punishment 'or road violations is not his main objective. Iowa's first highway safe:_v patrol consisted of only 15 men. called inspectors, who had long been en the road with other duties. Appalled at the nationwide increase in ..«;hway tragedies, and having neither money, tools, nor authority :o combat it as we wished, we called n this little group, gave them first aid training, put them in uniform (for which they paid) and added patrolling to their work of checking licenses, collecting fees and fines. 'From now on, save lives first, money afterwards," we told them. 69 Fewer Deaths. "The end of the year showed 69 fewer deaths than the year before in spite of a national increase in fatalities. The 1935 session of the legislature authorized the appointment of 50 men, besides the chief and his two assistants to carry on the work of the original patrol. "The Iowa highway safety exper- _ment has gone far enough to justify the belief that we are making the lit approach to our problem-through education, courtesy and helpfulness, instead of by force alone," Mrs. Miller concludes. "An educated public opinion is showing definite progress in making our Iowa highways really safe, whereas coercion would be giving us only a crop of cop dodgers. RCA Victor makes this amazing offer but once a year. We urge you to act quickly! Because of the unusualness of this offer, it is for a limited time only.
