THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. PAGE FIVE 85 Violent Deaths In Somerset in 1937, 32 Motor Victims SOMERSET, Feb. 3.--Autos accounted for 32 of the 85 accidental deaths in Somerset county investigated during 1937 by Coroner W. J. Logue. Heart ailments caused 40 of the 73 natural deaths on which a coroner's investigation was asked last year. A criminal abortion, a shooting and an attack with an axe-handle were discovered to be the causes of three criminal deaths investigated i by Coroner Loguc in 1937. | Death by firearms appeared to be the most popular manner o£ self- destruction as seven of the 11 suicides investigated last year by Coroner Loguc were perpetrated in that manner. The official reports of the coroner's investigation filed in the office of Clerk ot Courts Ivan Lambert showed that 20 persons met their death in mine accidents last year. Ten more suffered fatal falls and 10 i died of acute alcoholism. j Railroad accidents and drowning each accounted for two deaths. Falling trees and exposure extracted a toll of four more lives and accidental shootings took an additional two. An airplane crash, suffocation, a bolt of lightning, a sawmill accident and burning each took one life, pushing the accidental death total for 1937 in Somerset county to 85. Mine accidents accounted for one- third of them and auto accidents took the lion's share, one-third. Of the 73 natural deaths investigated, 46 were due to some type of heart ailment. Cerebral hemorrhages ran a bad second with 10 deaths. Pneumonia, cerebral embolism and encephalitis each accounted for two fatalities, while the following ailments are accredited with one death each: Sulfanilamide poisoning, barbital poisoning, syphilis, tetanus, pulmonary embolism, meningitis, diabetes millctus, pulmonary hemorrhage, intestinal obstruction, cancer and mal-nutrition. Heart ailments were accredited with over 63 per cent of the natural deaths and cerebral .hemorrhages accounted for over 15 per cent. Shootings led the suicide parade, accounting for seven of the' 11 self- inflicted deaths. Two more succumbed by self-inflicted cuttings and one by strangulation. Only one death due to poison was accredited to the suicide column. Prominent Race Drivers Testing New Hudson 112 Foot Hudson 112 cars, off on a 10,000'mito test run, oac/i piloted by a famous raco driver. Inset showt the four raco drivers who aro testing the new Hudson 112. Left to n'Uht: Babe Stapp, Ira Vail, J. B. SrJiippcr, Director of Public Relations, fftidton Motor Car Company, Chet Miller and Tod Horn. Named Tygart Dam Tender. Captain John M. Muter has been appointed to take charge of the Tygart River Flood Control Dam near Graf ton, W. Va. Muter, a river- man for more than 40 years, was in charge of Government dredges in the Pittsburgh district for 22 years. He will make his home near the site of the $18,000,0(10 structure, 1,900 feet long and 260 feet high, built to pro- set Pittsburgh from flood waters. Four of America** leading race Drivers, Babo Stnpp, Tbd Horn, Chct Mil] or and Ira VaU aro out on individual 10,000 milo test runs with tho now Hudson 112, tho lutost entry in tho lowest prico Cold. Those drivers aro putting tho four cars through their paces in widely scattered parts of tho country 90 that oil climatic and road conditions will bo encountered. Tho can and their fhmoui driven havo now boon on tho road since January 11* Babe Stapp, well-known California driver who has been up in the money u consistently at Indianapolis, took off immediately for his homo state. Ho arrived in Los Angeles in four days, with runs of over 900 miles per day. Ho is now running up and down tho Pacific coast with a mixture of mountain and desert running which gives a wide rango of temperature and rond conditions. Owing to tho nature of tho country, Stapp can put an infinite variety of experience into his daily reports to tho Hudson factory. Ted Horn, who ranks tecond in tho AAA Contest Board Championship standing this year and who was third at Indianapolis in the last race, is now on his way bnck from Austin, Ic^as via Wnco, Dallnj, Wichita and !O« Moinos. Ho will be in Detroit this week end and then on" on another lap. Chet Miller who is also a consistent "money man", in tho big; AAA races, is completing a lop which took him through Tennessee. Alabama and Florida, down tho West coast and up the East, touching at Tampa and over the Thminmi trail to Miami. His routo lay through tho Big S mole07 mountains. Ira Vail whom oil know ns ona of tho rent old-timers of racing famo has hncl tho "snow and ico assignment." Ho has been through tho mountains of Pennsylvania and Now York State. When ho completes hi* first lap this week-end ho will be sent on a milder assignment wlulo one of tho other drivers will tackJo tho snow belt. Careful reports of gnsolino mileage, oil consumption and other data are being compiled to give tho Hudson company first hnnd information on the performnnco of thew can. About 20,000 miles of hard running under all sorts of conditions have already been completed with all four drivers highly pleased nt tho results, without a «n(;Io stop for repair i. nnd without any water added to a radiator ' ·inco tho start. DAY IN WASHINGTON BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, only institution which can answer the risk question is the Government itself. So what the Government by its course of uncertainty produces in the way of lack of confidence would be made up, in thecase of small loans, by the action of the Government in insuring capital loans. Various plans for small loan machinery are under consideration nt the White House and nt the RFC and the Federal Reserve Boaid. It has been thought that some mortgage associations might bo created which would make small loans to industries and businesses of all kinds nnd that the debentures issued by these associations would be insured and thus made a marketable security for purchase by banks. Certainly, it is an odd state of nf- fairs when n house situated in :i neighborhood that may change at any time can be mortgaged for 10 to 20 years and the mortgage insured, whereas a sound business with a i capable management nnd a record of { cannings and prudence cannot even ] get five or ten-year money except from loan sharks or persons who exact as a fee or commission a slice of the business which they befriend. The Administration !s on the right track in digging into the subject and indications are that something will come of it soon. BEEHIVE COKE OUTPUT DROPS TO RECORD LOW Beehive coke production continues to fall away to new record lows, a survey indicated today. There were but 828 ovens in the Conncllsville Region during the week ended Saturday, January 20, « decline of 1-16 from the previous week's figure of 97'1 which was but two higher thnn the lowest total in more than two years. Blowing out of ovens at Gri/Tin No. 2 nnd Lincoln sent down the production to a new low jincc the industry received its first major stimulation of n decade late in 1!36. Independent beehive coko operators were still mystified as to what tho future holds for them and eee no immediate prospect of improvement unless there is a stimulation in the steel Industry.
