CHARLES CITY -- Charles City and vicinity has just experienced the coldest winter in 46 years of record avaiiable locally, according to E. G. Larson, official weatherman. Other state and sectional records going back to 1819 indicate that no colder las occurred since that time. "No one will ever know how many .years 'arther we would have to go back to find a colder winter," he added. Mr. Larson said the coldest month of record still remains January, 1912, with a mean of --2.4 degrees. ;ut February, 3936. was the coldest February of record and the second coldest month of record. The mean temperature of 2.2 degrees was 14.9 degrees below normal. The highest temperature reached during the month was 40 degrees and the lowest --24 degrees on Feb. and 16. Winter Average 8." Degrees. The monthly averages for the :hree winter months were 17.9, 6.0 and 2.2 degrees, giving a winter mean of 8.7 degrees, 8.4 degrees below normal. The winter of 1903-04 comes the nearest to equaling this record, having monthly means of 13.3, 6.6 and 8.2 degrees and a winter mean of 9.0 degrees. The low averages of the past winter resulted mainly from the sustained severe cold of the 36-day period, Jan. 18 to Feb. 22. During this period the temperature averaged 6 degrees below zero, and 21 degrees below normal. The average of the daily highest readings was 4 degrees above zero, and the average lowest was 16 degrees below zero. The highest temperature reached was 25 above zero on Feb, 8, and the lowest, 29 below zero on Jan. 22. Zero or lower was reached on all but one of the 36 days. This was Feb. 13, when the lowest was 4 above zero. Period of Hardship. Aside from the severe cold, the frequent and heavy snowfall and strong winds made this a period of extreme hardship for all those who had outside work to do. The storm of Feb. 8 was the most severe, resulting in a tieup of rail and motor traffic during most of the following week. A coal shortage resulted, which made it necessary to close schools and other public buildings for one week to conserve fuel. Most farm roads became closed to motor traffic and remained closed at the end of February. Trails were broken through fields and fences with horses and sleighs. The seasonal snowfall to the end of February was 56 inches, having been exceeded only once during a like period in the past 46 years. This was during the season of 1909-1C when the total to the end of February was 64 inches. The greatest average depth of snow on the ground, which reached 25 inches on Feb. 20, has also only been exceeded once, namely on Feb. 26, 1929, when it reached 30 inches. 25.4 Inches of Snow. Record low minimum tempera tures, however, remained unchangei during the winter, the mercurj never seriously threatening- the rec ord low of --34 of Jan. 12, 1912, ant the --31 of Feb. 9 and 10, 1899, anc Feb. 2, 1905.

Straw., DECLARE WAR ON LUNATIC DRIVERS Wallace Explains Six Point Plan of Motor Vehicle Administrators. WASHINGTON -- Motor vehicle enforcement officers of 43 states Wednesday declared open warfare in what they term the lunatic fringe if motorists whom they say records show to be a primary cause of the highway traffic problem. A statement by Lew Wallace, president of the American Association of Motor Vehicle administrators, and admin- strator of Iowa, explains a six point program just adopted by that association and emphasizes that solution of the accident problem is a latter to be handled by the individual states. "Motor vehicle administrators, having the responsibility for the conduct of motorists on the highways and authority for dealing- with the situation," declared Wallace, 'are closer to the accident problem and more affected by it than any other group. Our knowledge is practical and our interest is governed by only one thing--a desire to serve the public to the greatest possible degree." Six Point Program. The six point program is summarized as follows: 1. To get proper support for administrative and enforcement bodies in carrying into effect legislation now in existence, or when passed and closer co-ordination of the work of administrative and enforcemen bodies and the courts, there should be formed in each state a state safety committee including all civic and service organizations to back up the work of the executive heads of state departments who should be formed into an official committee by the chief executive of each state. 2. The passage of uniform state traffic laws and municipal ordinances is vital to further progress in highway traffic regulation. We pledge ourselves to actively assist in procuring that result. It is our belief that through the establishment of official co-ordinating committees and state safety councils, together with the influence of interested national agencies and our own association, a program along this line can be projected and enacted hrough the assembling and cor- elating of material now available. Urges Standard Laws. 3. Standard operators' and chauf- ;eurs' laws, the definite power of suspension and revocation of licenses and a severe penalty for driving while a license is under sus- lension, and better methods of tecping state records of license holders are the first steps that should be taken in the direction of proper traffic control legislation. 4. We believe the greatest field for the improvement of highway .raffic lies in the proper education of our youth, both before they be- _:ome eligible to drive and during their early years of driving. We believe that traffic safety education should be a part of the regular curriculum of primary and secondary schools and it should be standardized under the supervision of instructors familiar with and trained in the teaching of this subject. We offer our fullest co-operation in carrying out programs developed along this "line. 5. We believe that the appeal to fear has served its practical purposes in arousing public consciousness to the accident problem and that any progress to be made, in the future must be based on constructive lines. Radical suggestioins or nnovations which now flood the desks of enforcement officers should be held in abeyance until scientific, engineering and public support is forthcoming. Communities Appointed. 6. Through various committees now appointed, we believe that as state administrators, together with other interested officials of our re- specive states and the nation and public co-operation, we will be abl« .0 offer by the end of the current year a definite uniform proposal acceptable to the general public. The assistance of all groups interested in Uie accident problem -is earnestly solicited. "The suspension and revocation :f drivers' licenses is the most po- ccnt weapon at our disposal," Administrator Wallace declared. "We therefore recommend --that states', without such legislation should proceed immediately to adopt it and some of the states in which such powers are conferred should have more teeth put into their laws. This should be done in the interest of the great majority of motorists and pedestrians who are sane and careful in their conduct on the highways." Medical Group Elects. IOWA CITY, (.T)---Alpha Omega Alpha, national medical fraternity,, elected eight University of Iowa- students to membership. They included .Toe R. Brown of Iowa City, Jack Aita of Council Bluffs, and Benjamin Wells of Marshalltown. HELPS AVOID MANY COLDS Especially designed aid for nose and upper throat, where most colds start.
