CHICAGO, Feb. 3.--The Nation sliced accidental deaths to 95,000 during 1938, a reduction of 10,200 from 1937 and the greatest improvement ever recorded in a single year, the National Safety Council announced today. The provisional figure was the low- cit since 1933. Accident prevention programs were successful everywhere except in the home. For the first time in a decade home accidents exceeded the Nation's traffic deaths. The council said home accidents increased two per cent from 32,000 in 1937 to 32,500 last year, while traffic fatalities dropped 19 per cent from 39,043 in 1937 to 32,000 during 1938. This represented a saving oi 7,640 livcj. "The traffic death decline was not due to less travel, for motor vehicle mileage was as great in 1938 as the year before," the council explained. Only 35 persons were killed last year uled with 57 in 1937, a 33 per cent reduction. Passenger deaths totaled 25, a rate of four deaths per 100,000,000 passenger miles. Deaths fiom steam railroad accidents during the first 10 months last 3 ear amounted to 3,752, a decrease of 18 per cent from the 1937 total of 4,580. The council said the only increase in deaths was for passengers on trains. " These soared from 12 to 65 largely because of the Montana train wreck last June. The council said during 1938 the accidental death rate per 100,000 in accidents involving sched- domestic air flights compared HonMhold Aria by /Vlice Brooks 1 Coal Industry s Outlook is Dark, They Go SoFnsJ, They're, jFun to Do PATTERN 6286 Patient pets that will meet with everyone's approval, this pup and kitten in easy cross stitch.

Miss Ethel Raccy Dead. SOMERSET, Feb. 3.-- Miss Ethel Racey, 23, daughter of Joseph and Average Surplus Food Motorist Who For Needy in State in 1938 Totalled $32,55 PITTSBURGH, Feb. 3--The outlook for Western Peainsylvania's coal industry, vitally important to this area, looms dark and forbidding, according to John D. A, Morrow, president of the Pittsburgh Coal Company. W r i t i n g in Creator Pittsburgh, published by the Chamber of Commerce here, Mr. ifaorrow ironically asserts that 1038 was the worst year Western Pennsylvania coal operators cva'r "enjoyed." He states: ''Compared with 1937, production in the district as a whole fell off roughly 40 per cent. When Western Pennsylvania coal mines operate at 60 per cent of normal output, the exceptionally heavy taxes to which they are subjected, plus other inescapable fixed charges, impose crushingly heavy financial burdens upon them. "But to add to their woes in 1938 their prices were demoralized beyond any previous experience by the National Coal Act, widely heralded as B beneflcient attempt to 'save' ihe coal industry of the United States. "The combination of reduced production, increased taxes and collapsing prices was sufficient to produce a year of business unique in its disastrous financial results." An average quantity of surplus food items worth approximately $32.55 were given to each eligible general assistance and dependent children family in the State in 1938, population was 73, a mark bettered i a t a cost to the D. P. A. for the year by only six years since 1900. O j 52.35 per family. Due to the large increase in the quantity and variety of food stuffs rmde available to relief recipients in 1938, the average size city store found it impossible to continue to handle the bulk of items required to serve the unemployed without interfering with their own business, Secretary "As. usual," the council said, "the effect of major disasters on the year's accident toll was unimportant Accidental deaths occur mostly in ones and twos." Two 1938 disasters were outstanding, however. Thef were the New England hurricane and the February floods in Southern California which the council said took 682 and 181 lives respectively. Every month during 1938 showed an improvement in the all-accidental death total. February showed the biggest reduction with a 14 per cent drop from the same 1937 month. Geographically, Michigan reported the largest decrease--23 per cent. Maryland was second with a 21 per cent drop. v Nineteen hundred and thirty eight was the second year in automotive history to show a decrease to traffic deaths. The other decline was in 1932 and was only half as great as the 1938 reduction. Forty-five states cut their deaths below 1937 figures. Rhode Island led with a decrease of 36 per cent. Pennsylvania was second with a 35 per cent reduction, in traffic fatalities. The council said 24 of 37 cities of more than 250,000 population reported reductions or no change. Columbus, Ohio, led the list with a 62 per cent drop. Providence, R. I., was next with 61 per cent. Chicago reductions of 155 deaths was the largest numerical decrease lor any city. Forty-eight population reported no deaths last cities above 10,000 year, of which the largest was Tucson, Ariz., with a population of 34,000. Second was Clarksburg, W. Va., with 29,000 population. Hogs Against T u r n Scored right of way to cars maKIng left turns are sharply criticized by the Keystone Automobile Club which in a bulletin lays responsibility for many accidents on this lack of consideration. Edward P. Curran, safety director of the club, said the club's investigation shows that numerous accidents are caused directly by the failure, or refusal, o£ drivers to show common courtesy to fellow operators at street and road intersections. Howe reported. As a rcbult, he an- "It is not pleasant to reflect that nounced, all retail stores have been eliminated as outlets in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Nine distribution centers have been set up by the department in Philadelphia, and seven in Pittsburgh. Hent is paid by the department and the labor is furn- a considerable number of motorists think only of their own convenience," he said. "Even at the risk of personal injury they will not yield a few seconds to the driver who has signalled his intention to make a left turn and is in the proper position to complete the turning movement.

In addition, large quantities of bulky perishable foods, are distributed through drop-off points and direct to recipients through local warehouses. It is planned 'to increase the number of distribution cents as caseload rises. Surplus food commodities are purchased by the Federal government out o£ funds set aside from import revenues and cost the taxpayers nothing. They are purchased to absorb surplus stocks, keep prices up to points where growers will .-,ot lose money on their operations, and furnish the unemployed with articles which they might not be able to purchase out of their relief grant Local surpluses are purchased and distributed within their state of origin before commodities are shipped in from outside state lines. Educator Scores Youth Paganism PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3.--What he termed "the prevailing paganism of the rising generation" was seen by Dr. William W. Comfort, president of Haverford College, as a "more serious threat to American democracy than any dangers from foreign countries." The Society of Friends (Quaker) leader placed most ol the blame for the "paganism" on the public schools where, he said, "religion is virtually outlawed." Woman Refused Divorce. PITTSBURGH, Feb. 3.--Attractive Rosa Krug Brown, who testified she cooked her husband's meals even while she was suing him lor divorce, lost her case. Judge S. H. Gardner said "she admitted that she suffered no abuse and that distreatment had not been bad enough to cause'her to leave." Public Debt Grows, Treasury Reports By United Press.
