Safety Council Outgrowth of 1912 Meeting CHICAGO--The huge luxury liner "Titanic" struck an iceberg awl sank with huge loss of life in 1912. Jim Thorpe swept the Olympic games t h a t same year and was acclaimed the world's greatest ath- iete. At the same time a big fuss svas made in magazines, papers ami .sermons over the fact t h a t women had been seen smoking -in public. WASHINGTON STATE FRUIT COMMISSION Another rumpus was raised over the way kids were dancing the Turkey Trot. And Teddy Roosevelt led his Hull Moosers out of the GOP convention to form a third party. Jn among all this big news another item sneaked into the press in 1912. Some people were holding a safety convention in Milwaukee -- I h e First Co-operative Safety Congress. Naturally this story was tost among the more spectacular happenings. Reaches Into Every State Rut out of that modest, inconspicuous safety meeting in Milwaukee came the N a t i o n a l - S a f e t y Council and the fur-flung organized safely movement which today, 40 years later, reaches into every state and scores of countries. The N a t i o n a l ' S a f e t y Council will celebrate the 40th anniversary of that Milwaukee safety meeting in a big way when the 40th annual Congress is held in Chicago Oct. 2 0 - 2 4 . The Congress this fall won't bear much "resemblance to that first Congress in 1912. This year more t h a n J2,OOU people from all over (he world will come to Chicago for the world's biggest safely event. L''ive huge hotels will be needed to house the meetings, while COO speakers will appear at more than 200 sessions, covering every phase of 'safety. In addition, the Congress exposition will contain about 250 exhibits covering all typos of safety aids. To Emphatii« Co-operation This Congress will be dedicated to' celebrating and commemorating four decades of sufety. It will emphasize the co-operative nature of the safety movement, in which scores of safety organizations pool their efforts an! resources in n combined fight against accidents. In the 40 years since that first safety convention was held, 500,000 lives have been saved. This figure is based on the accidental death rate in 1913 and in succeeding years. But safety leaders point out that the (oil still is so huge it staggers the imagination -- 94,000 killed and 9,400,000 injured in. 1951 alone, at a cost of $7.9 billion. Out of the 1952 Congress, t h e Council hopes, will come the ammunition and weapons to wage a harder and even more successful war on accidents. But throughout the entire convention will run a tone of gratitude to (hose safety pioneers who attended I h c first Congress in 1912. Efforts are being made to have as many of them as possible attend the 401 h an- n u a l Congress as honor guests of the National Safetv Council. Woman Taxi Driver Is Most Courteous OLNKY, 111.
