This is two dispatches by winners passing along tips for driving safely—and staying alive. By JOHNNY PARSONS 1950 Winner Indianapolis 500-Mile Race Written for United Press America's summer madness begins this weekend. •There are going to be lots of cars on the highways in the vacation season, and some .of the drivers are going to do crazy, unaccountable things. They're going to make right ing to be tired, sleepy, unconcerned—even mad. You can expect to meet these guys any time, any place. But the main thing is: Don't You be one of them. I drive up to 60,000 miles a year from race to race and cover 150 schools a month for the Champion Spark Plug Company's highway safety program. I talk safety to youngsters, many of whom look upon race drivers as daredevils. I tell them that speeding and reck- less driving are signs of immature driving. Share the Driving One of the reasons why 40,000 lives are lost annually on U.S. highways is the complete lack of I mental alertness. In other words, keeping your eyes open—watching your own actions as well as those of other drivers. We have no idea whether the man coming towards us will turn in front of us. If we travel bumper to bumper at unsafe speeds, a sudden turn or stop will make 'a line of automobiles look like a> crumpled accordion. You can't control 300 horsepower if you wave your hands in conversation vhile driving. • At the Speedway, every crew has somebody ready to go in relief if the starting driver begins to show undue strain. Daily our highways are loaded with people trying to drive themselves to a frazzle to 'CONFIDENTIAL' PAIR ON BAIL CONFIDENTIAL magazine figures Fred Meade and wife Marjorie surrender in Los Angeles, two of 11 persons indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit criminal libel, a felony. Fred, '33, and Marjorie, 23, are free on $10,000 bail. (International Soundplioto} driver in a car, split the driving ..,.. assignments regularly. If not, then When there is more than one a practical suggestion would be to complete a trip. Take a common sense Up: take a break every 100 miles. On a long trip a lot of mileage can be covered—covered safely — under that plan. Be Careful, Polite there is also the matter of courtesy. To us on the Speedway, courtesy is absolutely essential. If we don't show it fi the people who run auto racing will ask us to find another way to make a 'iving. On the race track—or on the highway —there is no excuse for_ carelessness or rudeness. Here are some discourteous acts which lead to trouble. Leaving the curb without looking; stopping bumper-lo-bumper in traffic and not giving some guy a break when he's trying to get away from the curb; speeding up after someone's started to pass you; cutting in and out of slow-moving traffic. And there is the •hometown" driver who turns or stops without thinking to signal—the one who if you hit him gets mad and says, "Why you oughtta know I was go- Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Nineteen ing to turn here. I've been doing it every day at this time for 201 years." •Just for the fun of it, 1 leave your home tomorrow with the idea you're going to give every motorist a break. You'll be surprised how good it will make you feel. And who knows? It may'rub off on the other fellow and start a chain reaction that can save a life—maybe yours. ATTEND CONVENTION Mrs. Clifford Updcgraff, Mrs. Carl Yeakley and Miss Pauline Robeson" delegates from the Mt.
