Gets Fellowship POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT I hereby announce my candidacy for Cerro Gordo county superintendent of schools subject to the will of the presidential electors of the independent and township school districts on May 12. CHARLES M. NEVELN Company Accountant Testifies in Ontjes' Claim Against Estate W. F. Robinson, Minneapolis accountant for the Northwestern States Portland Cement company, testified Thursday afternoon in the hearing before Judge T. A. Beardmore OD F. A. Ontjes' claim against the C. H, McNider estate. Cross examination of Mr. Ontjes was completed, and the testimony of Carl A. Parker, vice president of the First National bank here, was also brought to a close. Excessive speed is a contributing major factor in 65 per cent of the reported accidents, declared Harry W. Nestle, assistant chief of the Iowa highway patrol, in an address Thursday noon to the Kiwanis ciub in Hotel Hanford. "We ask that motorists make a silent pledge with themselves to drive carefully," Officer Nestle continued. "Such a pledge on the part of motorists will do more for the cause of safety than any fines and penalties that might be given." Regarding speed, Officer Neatle cited figures to show that a. driver going at a high rate of speed requires three-fourths of a second to react when a hazard is seen. Then he begins to slow down his car and this cannot be accomplished ''soon enough, in many instances, to prevent accidents. Is Checking Trucks. "It doesn't make any difference if a car is mechanically perfect," Officer Nestle pointed out," if it goes into a ditch at 50 miles .an hour. When an accident occurs at that rate, no car can stand the-strata. And when accidents occur at that speed, the. deaths frequently come in doubles and triples." . Officer Nestle has been in North Iowa with other officers checking Minnesota trucks coming into Iowa. He said that Iowa has a ruling that any commercial vehicle operating in Iowa and registered in another state is given the same consideration that Iowa vehicles are given hi that state. Iowa officers are now forcing Minnesota drivers to buy Iowa licenses but he said he expected a reciprocity agreement would be worked out in four or five days. Officer Hrubetz Talks. Officer J. C. Hrubetz spoke on city traffic regulations, illustrating his talk with the board used in' traffic school. He explained the laws regarding loading zones, limited parking zones, arterial traffic signs, signal lights, fire hydrant no parking, angle parking, driving out carefully between intersections and observance by pedestrians of regulations. These two officers placed much stress on safety, as did George W. Hill, who was in charge of the program. Guests of the Kiwanis club were Ferris B. Martin of Minneapolis and C. D. Gordon. President F. M. Humphrey announced that Dr. W. E. Long, lieutenant governor of Kiwanis, and himself had visited the Ames Kiwanis club recently and brought greetings from that club. DR. A. K.
