'SO Traffic Toll To Reach Record Notionol Safety Council Warns U.S. Of Rising Total CHICAGO, Sept. M. (AP)—The National safety Council predicted today that the 1950 traffic death toll might reach 36,000, the highest since the record year of 1941. The council announced an August toll of 3,180, up 10 per cent over August. IJ49, and an eight month toll of 21,500, up U.per cent from last year, . The council said hope Is fading that the traffic death toll can be reduced In 1550 for the fourth consecutive year. . Motor vehicle accidents killed 31 500 In 1919, a decline from the 32 255 toll in 1948, and well below the 39.969 killed In the record year "Only a motoring miracle in the final quarter of the year can forestall -a 1950 toll of about 36000 traffic victims," said Nert H. Dear- horn, council president. "That would be the greatest death toll since the record year of 1941. "Still Time" "There Is still time to make a substantial reduction before, trie end of the year, but only If public officials on the state, county and city levels—those whose efforts can have a direct and immediate effect —approach the piwblem as an emergency, and receive wholehearted public support." he added. "Half measures won't turn the Lrlck." " The council said that up to'Sept 1, only seven of the 46 states reporting had decreases -in traffic .fatalities . compared to last year. One had no change and 33 showed increases. Through the first six months this year, the council said, the traffic death increase was almost entirely in' rural areas,'with the towns and cities holding the line. But this pattern was reversed in July and in August, the council said, It was given added significance with cities showing a 16 per cent Jump while (he nation as a whole .went up 10 per cent. .
