It is needed to carry on war-and there isn't enough o£ it being urhed in by housewives and other users of canned goods. "During the past months we lave concentrated on the organization for the collection of waste paper and in our enthusiasm to ;et that job done, we have failed .o emphasize that TIN is a critical metal," said Herbert C. Flagman, executive secretary for Iowa of the general salvage branch for Iowa of the war production hoard, :n a communication to Mrs. Henry C. Pendergraft, Mason City chairman of the women's salvage organization, who is in charge of tin collection here. "A tin collection will be held in Mason City some time this spring," said Mrs. Pendergraft, 'but the thins we want to emphasize that every housewife should be saving and processing tin cans lo he ready for this collection." Secretary PJagma'n pointed out how serious the tin situation is. "At present the nation's stock piles of tin are dwindling to a point where we are facing a seri- DUS shortage," said Mr. Flagman. "Unless we build up the organization for collection of tin cans we will not only endanger the production of war equipment, but will place our chances of getting new equipment in our homes even farther into the future. "It is pur job to see to it that valuable tin cans are not hauled to the dump. It is amazing how many unprepared cans .go this way. People who are still unmindful of the importance of salvaging tin cans and other criticil materials are giving us just cause to worry about how we will take care of war needs." p. m.

Gilbert SAFE ROADS AND SAFE DRIVERS IN POSTWAR PLANS George E. Miller of Traffic Safety Group Gives Talks Here Safe roads. Safe vehicles. Safe drivers. Safe pedestrians. These are the objectives of the national committee for post-war traffic safety, listed by George E- Miller oi Chicago, secretary of the committee, who spent Wednesday and Thursday in Mason City conferring with local safety officials and addressing various organizations. Mr. Miller spoke Wednesday morning at the Hamilton School of Commerce, Wednesday noon at the" regular Lions club meeting, Wednesday evening at a dinner meeting of the Mason City-Cerra Gordo County Safety council and Thursday noon at the Kiwanis club meeting..Highlight of his talks was the showing of a sound slide film, 'Traffic Jam Ahead!" recently produced tinder the auspices of his committee. Purpose of the film is to portray graphically the elements of the postwar traffic problem and to suggest possible solutions. Mr. Miller emphasized the fact that no solution can he successtul, however, without the help of the average driver and pedestrian. Postwar traffic safety is a community problem, the responsibility of every individual, he said- Safety education in the past has not succeeded in -cutting down the number of traffic accidents. Since gas and tire rationing have cut down the mileage driving, the accident total has been considerably decreased but the actual per mile death rate has not improved; in fact, statistics for the past year show a slight increase in that rate. Unless something is done it is very likely that with the end of the war there will be a sudden increase in that death rate, according to Mr. Miller. "Traffic Jam Ahead" lists out- of-condition cars and roads and ouf-of-practice drivers as 2 of the main safety problems of the future. Pedestrians arc used to lighter traffic, slower speeds and a relaxation of pedestrian control and therefore are becoming careless, while cars are older, tires are poor and equipment is worn out. By I960 some experts predict that 1940's volume of traffic will have doubled. The accident rate is likely to exceed that estimate if precautions are not taken at "once, according to the film's commentary. Traffic education, traffic enforcement and traffic engineering were the film's principal suggestions as to methods of controling the post-war traffic problem and preventing an upsurge of preventable accidents. Mr. Miller sounded the keynote of alertness--for drivers and pedestrians -- as another accident- forestallcr. He said that 48 national organizations now have representatives on the national committee for post-war traffic safety. Principal aims of the group are to stimulate and co-ordinate action in effectuating a post-war program by providing a clearing house and coordinating agency developing public support for traffic safety programs by official associations; to aid other organizations in developing their own action programs for safety promotion; to undertake information activities designed to energize- programs at local levels. In addition to the promotion of "Traffic Jam Ahead!" the committee is sponsoring the nationwide Annual Meeting Is Conducted by Credit Union of M. C. Schools Members of the Credit Union oi the employes of the Independen; school district of Mason City helc their annual meeting in room 216 of the high school Tuesday afternoon with oren Grout, president in charge.
