Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Traffic Toll Declining In Indiana INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—A big drop in traffic fatalities the last 'three weeks has given Indiana an unexpected chance .to oome up with a sharply reduced death toll for 1957. Only 14 daths were added to the-list last week, a figure 60 per cent lower than the 33 deaths recorded in a comparable week in 19.36.. As a result, the oil up to last Sunday midnight stood at 1,013, compared - with 1,064 in the first £27 days of 1956. State police, who compile provisional figures from week to week, said through November 24 there were 66 fatalities and the month's total was "almost certain to be well under" the 130 deaths recorded last November. However, State Police Supt. Harold . S. Zeis said Thanksgiving weekend travelers "hold the key" in cutting the toll by cautious driving. The sudden drop in fatalities came at an appropriate time. By the end of October, the 1957 totals were flirting with those of 1956 and it appeared a sharp upturn anytime could send the year's toll toward a mark higher than that of last year. ^ I But a downturn came instead; and'quite unexpectedly the fatality total became five per cent below IJio comparative figure for last year. Spartan Type Education Best For Scientists CHICAGO (UP) — More topnotch students of science are produced by the "Spartan type" education in American private secondary schools than by the "easier elective" system used in public high schools, a survey indicated today. The survey revealed that 21 per cent of the most recent graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology listed in Who's Who in America received their secondary education at private schools. That means less than 9 per cent of the total enrollment in secondary schools furnished 21 per cent of MIT's most recent op grads, Arthur E. Nealy, director of the Who's Who education department liaid. In the past 50 years, Nealy said, public high schools have de-emphasized such "hard" courses as mathematics, physics, chemistry and the classics in favor of "easier electives." Meanwhile, the private school has insisted on a "Spartan type" of education, Noaly said. Nealy said the 9 per cent figure •was based on statistics of 10 years ago when high schools were not crowded; if current figures were used, private schools would come out' even better, he said. In order to make the sruvey as up to date as possible, Nealy said, only the names of MIT men listed in Who's Who for the first time were checked.
