Accidents On Bicycles Can Be Cut Where's the most likely place for a bicycle accident? Are rural children safer than city children, or are boys safer on a bicycle than girls? At what age is a child most likely to have an accident? National Safety Council studies show surprising aspects in the answers to these questions. Chil dren in rural areas have as many, or more, accidents as city children. A child is more likely to be injured or killed after he's home from school than he is while riding to or from school. Accidents are most likely to happen on a Saturday and least likely to happen on a Sunday, the SEW for BACK-toSCHOOL SEARS DARK FALL GINGHAMS IN PLAIDS, CHICKS Large assortment of deep rich colors.

Boys are far mm liable to have accidents; a 42- state survey showed that 86 per cent of the children hurt were males. Most accidents involve children in the 5 to 14 age bracket. Intersections in cities are the most dangerous areas. Night Riding Dangerous Night riding is the most dangerous. While 70 per cent of accidents occur during daylight hours, four out of five deaths occur in the late afternoon or evening. It's not recommended . . . that children ride bikes at dusk or after dark, even if the bike has a headlight, taillight or reflector. If night riding must be done, for whatever reason, the bike should have proper lighting equipment, the rider should wear light-colored clothing and the bike should have reflective tape showing to the rear. The Veterans of Foreign Wars has been carrying out a national program of applying reflective tape, which is visible at night from as far as 1,500 feet, to bicycles. The VFW also has been inspecting bikes to check their operating condition and to see that the rider has knowledge of proper riding habits. Acharn Yoder CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Assigned to the Prince Royal's College in Chiengmai, Thailand, by the United Presbyterian Church as a teacher, William Yoder will have the title "acharn" (great Wise man). But he doesn't see it that way. Yoder, a 1963 graduate of the College of Wooster (Ohio), says: "They may have far more to teach" me than I will have to teach them." Yoder also says one Wooster course he never figured to get too much use from should come in handy. He took a soccer course to meet a physical education requirement, and will coach the sport in Thailand. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!
