"*""~ "Earl Hall's interest In accident HALL AWARD ON RADIO NETWORK Editor, Speaking at Wall Lake, Misses It Announcement ot the selection of W. Earl Hall, Mason City Globe-Gazette managing editor, as the National Safety Council "Safety Ace" with a $100 war bond award was broadcast Monday night on the Blue network. North lowans got the Blue network council program clearly on the new KXEL. station at Waterloo, but Mr. Hall, who was on a · speaking engagement at Wall Lake, didn't get to hear the broadcast. The "Safety Ace" award was made as part of the National Safety Council program, "Out of the Shadows," in which it dramatized the all out importance of accident prevention in war time. "All the conquered peoples of Europe and Asia want is the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness .... a right that every American takes for granted . . . a right our American boys are now fighting to preserve," the announcer stated. "And yet, says the National Safety council, an accident may rob any American of this right at any moment. "For instance, accidents have killed at" least 2 persons and injured 250 others while you've been listening to this broadcast. And they keep on killing and in- prevention is so intense that he has not permitted a single issue of his newspaper to go to press in more thaii 12 years without at least one safety article in it. Moreover, Mr. Hall was a founder of the Iowa State Safety council in 1934 and served as its president for o years, giving freely of his time and energy without compensation. In 1936, he won the National C. I. T. award for having written the outstanding safety editorial of the year and, in 1941, he won a 2nd award in this nationwide competition. As director of community service of the American Legion, Mr. Hall did much to make the highways of Iowa safer. "In view of these outstanding services to safety, the National Safety council is happy to announce at this time that Mr. Hall has been selected the 'Safety Ace' of the week. "Congratulations,' Mr. Hall! We are mailing you a $100 war bond as part of your award. May you and your newspaper continue to i^CLEAR LAKE GLOBE-GAZETTE U Tu 0.
