"Research," Dr. Dcsilva added, "shows that accident repeaters us a group have lower scores on all tests than volunteer subjects." He referred to a comparison of the 300 "repeat- on," and 75 volu::=rs who had no accidents, regarding braking reaction, steering and resistance to glare. Those "repeaters" under scrutiny haJ 626 accidents in which 25 persons were killed and 812 injured.

Equity Bill Against ] Union Miners Thrown Out by Judge Keenan Special to Tho Courier. GREENSBURG, Jan. 10.--Judge J. Hilary Keenan dismissed the bill in equity brought by Annie Burcinlh of Yukon against Hutchinson Local, United Mine Workers of America, it;, officers and others to collect a death jcncflt of $250 because the evidence n the case indicated (hat neither the U. M. W. A. or its local maintained j such a fund. There was a volunteer association, however, composed of miners at Hutchinson which collected assessments from its members but Burcinth was not a member in good standing at his death, it was claimed. In two other opinions by Judge. Keenan, Judgment was entered in favor of the trustees of the Citizens Savings and Trust Company, Mount Pleasant against Tony Colitri and Joe Cnlitri. In these cases judgment notes had been executed by the defendants in" 1932, and judgment has duly entered thereon. When it was sought to revive these judgments by writ of scire facias, the defendant contended that that had merely signed the notes as an accommodation for a former officer of the bank, and that they did not receive any of the money. The court held that this attack was to the validity of the original judgments, and . could not be raised against the writes of revival as the judgments were valid on their face.

Thobc-who cannot afford to keep their Seals are asked to help the committee complete its work by returning at once the Seals sent them. "A list is kept of every name to which Christmas Seals were mailed and the number sent so tht the co:n- mittee is able to account for every Seal.
