Whether U le increasing traffic toll is due lo repeal can not be: slalert wilh finality. Increase in population, increase in Ihe nmn- icr of cars on Ihe road and in their speed are nil factors which complicate Ihe issue. Statistics in Conflict There are no reliable and final stalislics. The National Safely Council reported an increase of 13 per cent in the number of drunken drivers involved in moor accidents and 10 per cent in the number of drunken pedeslriaiis who didn't get out of u le way Sut wet Si.

Huge Signs Barred ' This matter of "encourage or discourage" is Ihe center of many present-day attacks on the liquor problem. California, for instance, provides by law that places selling beer and liquors may not announce the fact by signs of more than 720 square inches.
