". The weekend fatalities raised the 1 1971—and January—toll to at least 120 compared with 62 a year ago. The worst January toll' ever, since statistics first were kept in 1928, was 126 in 1966.! With seven more days this . month, including another full weekend, it seemed most unlikely i the state could" escape going well past that figure. Already this month, 47, or more than half, of Indiana's 92 counties have recorded at least one fatality each.
