If it h -J S i i' * II ·i; !! h \ i SAFETY GROUP ASKS SEPARATE VEHICLE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS FOR COUNCIL NAMED Hope Expressed to Curb Excessive Speed on , HigKways. DES MOINES -«- In its annual meeting at Des Moines Sunday, the Iowa State Safety council asked the Iowa legislature to set up an independent non-political motor vehicle department as the surest guarantee.that highway safety and motor vehicle affairs in general would be freed froni the influence of party politics. The hope was also expressed in another resolution that legislative attention be given to the curbing of excessive speeding on the highways, which, it was stated, is responsible for the great majority o£ fatal accidents on the highways of Iowa. ' ' . Tribute to Mrs. IMiller. Another resolution was adopted paying tribute to the memory of. Mrs. Alex Miller, late secretary of state, who was alluded to as the greatest friend of safety ever known to Iowa. Senate file No. 181, embracing many of the safety ideas advanced by the Iowa State Safety : council, was referred to in one of the organization's resolutions' as one of the most forward-looking and comprehensive traffic c o n t r o l measures to be found in any state. Officers Are Elected. Officers named by the organization included: W. Earl Hall, Mason City, president; Mrs. Charles Pye Des Moines, vice president; Lew Wallace, Sigourney, secretary; anc Lester Wilke, Carroll, treasurer. All have held offices in the organization during the past yeai with the exception of Mr. Wilke who succeeds John A. Gunn ol Des Moines. Members of the resolutions com mittee were Mr. Wilke, Oliver Reiley of Algona, and'Mrsi M. R. Miles "of Des Moines. The legislators were "respectfully requested" to restore to the pending highway, traffic bill sections setting up an independent motor- vehicle department, "and by so doing secure for the people of Ipwa as nearly as possible a npnpartisan administration of highway safety matters." (The proposal for a separate department has been voted down by the Iowa senate.) Asks Consideration. The council requested the senate to give consideration to concurrence in the restored section "if tne bill is returned to it with the provision' reinstated." " When the bill to reform regula- tion of automobile traffic went to the Iowa house four days ago, the senate had removed the provision for creating a separate motor ve T hide department under a superintendent appointed by the governor. As sent to the house from the senate, the bill would retain administration of the motor vehicle and drivers license law in the secretary of state's office. Speed Limits. While establishing a maximum speed limit (20 miles an hour) for business districts and school zones, the bill retained the Iowa law fixing no maximum speed limit for pleasure cars on the highway. Thirty-seven organizations and 32 county safety councils from throughout the state were represented at the , meeting · The; men and women heard Adam Lintz of Chicago, 111., field director for the traffic safety division of the National Safety council,' predict the greatest revolution m traffic safety and law enforcement, in history will occur within the next three to five years.
