H FIRESIDE ii FUEL CO. J ! . Phone 888 elect officers and appoint committees for carrying on the aggressive program mapped out for the county units by the state safety council. The purpose of the organization to mold public opinion and first of all bring the decent citizen to observance of the rules of safety were outlined by Lew Wallace, superintendent of the state motor vehicle department; John R. Mattery, head of the state highway patrol, and Phil H. Sproni, executive secretary of the Iowa safety council. These stated that the eyes of other states were on Iowa in this safety program. W. Earl Hall, president of the state safety council, who presided at the meeting, outlined the events that brought about the organization of the movement, which had its genesis in a state meeting at Des Moines five years ago when he was safety director of the Legion department. To Unify Efforts. The purpose of the state organization is to correlate the safety efforts that have been carried on by scattered organizations throughout the state and carry on an aggressive, unified program, Mr. Hall stated. Mr. Wallace, introduced as "one who has done as much as anyone for the ideal of safety on the highways," maintained officials are up against a stone wall unless they get more co-operation from the public. "We are prone to place the blame for so many accidents on the drunks, the youth and everybody else but ourselves, when as a matter of fact most of the accidents are caused by the supposedly lawabid- ing citizens," he declared. One of Seven Doomed. "It is getting so when you and I go out on the highway we can never feel sure that we are coming back alive. At the present rate one of seven of you people here will be severely injured or killed on the highway in your lifetime. "But until you and I and other so- called decent citizens don't ask for anymore for ourselves than we would ask for others we'll never get anywhere. We can't blame the enforcement officers." Evanston, 111., he said, was pointing the way and showing what can be done with the backing of public opinion. With public opinion backing its work, the safety council can go to the legislature and procure the passage of adequate safety laws, he declared, adding that laws, now- ever, are of no avail unless also backed by sentiment. Up to Citizen. "We need uniform enforcement and all that, but until the ordinary decent citizen feels it his duty to obey traffic rules we can put an officer on every corner and we will never get enforcement. But if such people as you get behind this we can spend our time on the getting rid of reckless driver." "No one can drive safely on Iowa highways at from 70 to 80 miles an hour," Mr. Wallace maintained. "At least driving at that speed is setting a bad example for others less able to handle their machines," he said. "We are all Barney Oldfields in the rough and pretty rough if you ask me," he added. Hattery Speaks. Introduced by Mr. Hall as the lead of a "better patrol than I .bought possible," Chief Hattery diagnosed the trouble as being the prevalent attitude that enforcement s right until it strikes the individual, personally. Telling of an incident in which a motorist confessed he saw the stop sign but not the officer, Chief Hattery pointed out that the unfortunate thing in the American system was the prevalent idea that: "If you don't get caught it's all right." 'If we could instill in the boys and girls the idea that it's the smart Jru'ng, the right way and the Amer- can way to obey the motor vehicle i aws we A'ill httvu progressed a j cng way." he added. ! Can Meet Problem. 1 "Are we as American people, the sons of pioneers, going to admit hat we can't meet our problem ust as they met theirs. We as a na- ion will have to get a better grip on ourselves and things will go forward." The effectiveness 01 the Iowa safety council and its constituent county organizations will be in the fact that it unites the scattered efforts of organizations and corporations in that direction. Mr. Sproul declared. "Never before has there been an effort to bring accident consciousness down where it belongs on the individual," he stated. "Before this there was no concentrated effort to *o beyond the organization. But it sn't the organization that goes on :he highway, but the individual. Consequently it is the problem o£ the state and county safety councils to bring the consciousness of safety to every Iowa doorstep. Did Their Part. "Highway engineers have dom; their part in placing curves on the highways and putting up sigr.s. The automobile manufacturer has done his part in putting on powerful four wheel brakes and using shatter proof glass. But he has come to the stopping point. He can't control the pedal and the wheel. The motive force of the automobile is not under the hood but behind the wheel." The Iowa safety council seeks to achieve results not by appeal to motion but to intelligence and sense of fairness, he added. "What every driver should remember is that he only owns a one- three millionth interest in hat highway," he added. "I have seen repu- :able men guilty of discourtesies on the highway they would never think of doing in their own home. Organization Simple. "The organization plan is simple. The Iowa safety council is one of several states affiliated with the national safety council and is composed of county councils, which are made up of representatives of organizations and individual mem- jers. The state organization is made up of representatives of the county units." Membership dues in the council are 50 cents, the speaker explained. Of this 10 cents goes to the state organization, for which the member receives an emblem and windshield sticker for his car and report blanks. Mr. Sproul stated that rapid pro- ress is being made in the organization of county councils. Next week five additional councils will be formed. Twelve counties are set "or organization and work is being done in 32. Within three months 50 er cent of the counties in Iowa should be organized, he added. On Managing Board. The managing board is made up if the officers, one member from :ach of the incorporated towns and lot more than five members at arge who are members of farm organizations. At the conclusion of the addresses he presiding officer appointed Maron E. Olson, Leo Davey and Charles H. Barber as a nominating commit- ee. The report of the committee nominating members of the managing board was accepted by the or- anization. While the committee vas in deliberation Mr. Hall led in community singing, with Mr. Miligan at the piano. The meeting losed with benediction by Father '. K. Cassidy. Attended Meeting.
