12 SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1S39 This Week's Safety Lesson One of a series of 15 to be broadcast over KGLO by the Clausen-Warden post of the American Legion each : this material for weekly classroom 5 discussions MAidUN CITY G "CARELESSNESS A FACTOR If ACCIDENTS" By. Sergt. Robert E. Reese of Ih State Highway Pairol LESSOR NO. 8 In any kind o£ driving \vhethe Tft congested city traffic or out o the open road, the main thing t remember is to be alert so tha the other driver's mistakes do no get us mto trouble, and so that w do not make mistakes ourselves Careful drivers always allov themselves an extra margin o safety in both time and space in all kinds of traffic and conditions They point out that driving too close to the car ahead is taking unnecessary chances. It is just at easy to drop back a little so tha in case (lie -fellow in front stops suddenly \ve avoid the necessity of doing the same, or of turning oui suddenly to avoid running into him. Many drivers dash" around a I high rates of speed that are not only dangerous to themselves bul also to others. By driving carefully and still allowing ourselves a little more time we find that we get there just as quickly and get there safely. Drive Automatically Many of us drivers drive almost automatically. We feel experienced, safe and confident in that we are good drivers and are immune to accidents, having driven cars for years without a mishap. There is where \ve are wrong.and sooner or later we will end up finding that we were wrong. It is easy to be careless, but to be careful requires a good deal o£ effort and willpower. Carelessness seems to be a sort of human trait or weakness, either inherited or acqiured but it is a trait that can be overcome if the person so desires. By exerting a little effort and willpower a person can train himself to be more careful and cautious. Just Carelessness A small act of carelessness such as failure to give a proper hand signal when turning off onto a side road or into a lane is an example. Continuous driving is monotonous and we know that monotony produces fatigue. Statistics show that some of our most serious accidents, in fact the largest percentage of them are caused by drivers smashing up on straight roads. Never let yourself take it too easy at any time \\-hile driving an automobile. Keep your head and temper The drivel- who is easily upset b small things or who allows hitr self to become distracted so th le caiinpt give proper attention he driving is not safe behind th vheel of his car. If you have oad on your mind, get rid of omehow before you get into th [river's seat. Driving an automo ile in this age requires constan lertness. You cannot be a pa ime driver and e.vpect to do ood job of driving. Be Safe--Not Spectacular A safe driver is never a specta ular driver. He is considerate o he rights of other people. He wi ppreciate what others e.vpect hi; o do on the highways. No, there is no use trying t ass the buck on this traffic prob em. It's the driver himself, th areless and thoughtless thing hat he does that sends the deal ate soaring. It's Safe to Be Careful. 300 PRESENT AT RURAL MEETING Miss Jessie Parker Urges Teachers to Continue Program Approximately 300 teachers attended the conference luncheon of the teachers of rural schools and county superintendents held at the Church of Christ Friday noon.

ATKINS THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE .... and a book o£ remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord . . . Read Malachi 3:13-18. We too write boo!;s of remembrance, with entries that bless 01 burn, -with dim, half-erased entries, entries beyond our power to recover though they tell us that they are there. Life and the years pass, and leave us--only a book of remembrance; as though that were what time is for. These "books of remembrance" are the sources of our surer wisdom, our abiding happiness and, sometimes, our most searching regrets. And since we are always writing not only our own, but coloring other peoples' books of re- nembrance, how careful we need o be about the entries. For a book of remembrance may also become a book-of judgment. Prayer: We thank Thee, Keeper )f the Books of Life, for our books if remembrance; gratefully for v-hat is so bright and dear in hem; humbly for the undeserved n them: sadly lor their stained and blotted entries, reverently for heir testimony to Thy love and goodness thus revealed. Give us, ve beseech Thee, grace and wisdom to write always a better book or ourselves, and for those whose own memories we in any way may make happy and good. Amen.
