'REPEATERS'ARE ACCIDENT CAUSE Few Persons Are Responsible for Most Injuries in Homes, Factories. "A large percentage of all accidents in our factories are caused," said local safety council members, "by comparatively few persona. These persons are called 'accident repeaters.' It is probably true, also, that a large percentage of home accidents, and automobile accidents, are caused by 'accident repeaters.' "What kind of person, then, is an 'accident repeater? 1 Is he any different from'other persons? What are his chances of getting out of tho class of 'accident repealers?' " The accident repeater In a factory sometimes is a man who is sick, studies have shown. He may not know that he is sick. The remedy, of course, is a physical examination and proper health habits. The accident repeater sometimes is a man who is doing- the wrong kind of work--work for which he really io not fitted; and the remedy is a change of work. Sometimes Ihe accident repeater is ignorant--and what he needs is safety education. Some accident repeaters arc merely careless and indifferent. Such men in a factory usually arc given a severe jolt. They often are told that they either must learn to play the safely game--help in preserving life and property--or find other employment. Business Men Entertained at Luncheon; -Many Visit Shop. The formal opening of the Brewer Tire and Battery company, Inc., Delaware avenue and Second street northeast, took place Saturday with a large number of visitors inspecting the newly installed equipment.

Brewer, head of the new lire shop, and James Ashley, Des Moines; manager of the Iowa branch of tha Firestone Tire company. Eager to Return.- Mrs. Brewer graciously welcomed the guests and slated she had been eager to return to the combativo life of business ever since she retired from the operation of the Red Ball Transportation company fleet of busses. Mrs. Brewer introduced Mr. Ashley who slated lhat the establishment of the Brewer company as the distributing center for 20 counlies in northern Iowa was a decided forward step for his company. "We feel this is an ideal setup for the Firestone company," Mr. Ashley declared. "And we believe this is the ideal time in which to improve our setups. General business conditions today are not so bad, but it requires more intensive work than eight or nine years ago." Mr. Ashley reviewed the history of the Firestone company, which he said was the pioneer organization to introduce the balloon tire and also the leader in the gum dipping process. A total of 6,900 new dealers have been added in the past six months, Mr. Ashley said. Attended Luncheon. H. M. Empting, Des Moines, assistant branch manager; William McCollotigh, Des Moines, Firestone dealer; Oliver Keece, Charles City; Arnold Beguhn, Algona; William Condon, Des Moines, and Walt Ashman and Dell Potter, Fort Dodge, were also guests at the luncheon, j Poor Fido Is Held in City Bastile; Court Refuses to Hear Case In ancient times when two women quarreled concerning the ownership of a baby, the wise king brot a sword and offered to givo each woman half. The mother begged tho king to give the child to the other woman, and the ownership was established. But poor Fido spent the night in the city jail and Police Judge John C. Shipley didn't even offer to try the severing experiment. The dog, a wooly brown puppy, was claimed by Bert Adkins, 711 Tenlh street northeast, and Jim McLaughlin, 143 Fifth street southwest. About a dozen persons, most of them children, assembled al police court Saturday morning to testify concerning the ownership of the dog. But Judge Shipley ruled, since no information charging criminal action had been filed by either party, that the matter was a civil case arid could only be settled in a justice court but advised it be settled out of court. Fido, scarcely seeming to realize the awful disgrace of having spent the night in jail, was released and everyone went out laughing to se! Lle the mailer in olher than a criminal courl.

Look al. the Timken Roller Bearing- Co. advertisement in the Saturday Kvem'ng Post. In every other issue they list names of cars using Timken bearings. You will notice manufacturers thai build more than one car use Timken hearings in their higher priced cars but do not in their cheaper cars. A roller bearing is slronger lhan a ball bearing because it has a full line of contact or surface where a hall hearing has but one spot of contact. KOLLEIl BEARING BALL BEAKING LINE OF CONTACT SPOT OF CONTACT A house mover uses rollers not balls because rollers are stronger and support heavier loads. A roller bearing lubricated will last forever. Bushings wear regardless. A ball bearing will break- just try to break a roller bearing. Timken bearings arc usorl in Ford front wheels. See the cut away display on our showfloor, ask for a comparison. The front and rear axles of any car must absorb road shocks. Before buying a car ask Lo see Ihe bearings at these points.
