8-Algenn (!«.) Upper Be* Maine? Thursday, Sept. 6, 1955 fcr CHRIS REESK A tattl* Ol Thli. ft LliU* of thsl; Noi Much at Heard a couple of gents talking the other day while they were gulping a cup of coffee and the subject of their conversation was mighty interesting. Don't know where they had first heard of the matter they were discussing. But it had do with traffic speeding, etc. It seems that there have been suggestions made to legislate covering motor traffic and speeding. By way of legislation there would be appointed in town and city of the state a motor traffic deputy. He would be a person who had always maintained the most rigid and safe angles in motor driving. And when speedster, or reckless (iriver, wnuki pull his stuff on the highways and when seen to drive over speed limits this deputy would take his car number and report it to the nearest law officer or justice of the peace. The driver would then be called to tho sheriff's office and would be fined $5 for speeding, and $5 for costs and the latter $5 would be split between the law office and the deputy reporting the driver's speeding or recklessness, so to speak. And S5 would be paid the state. And the legislature would arrange to .provide appointment (if a deputy in every city or town and as well one in each township. No, there would be no salary, as the deupty would only receive the $2.50 for making the report and charges. At that it looks as though a plan of some sort along those lines might take good care of speed violations on our highways and roads. Don't know where the two gents had first heard of such traffic legislation, but I do know that they were both deeply interested in laws and regulations which would prove of help to hold speed limits on our highways to real observance, so to speak. —o— For those who might want to send of finer foods to Japan I'm telling, about the postage which a local lady met up with when she wanted to send an angel food cake to a loved one in Japan. The cake was of average weight bui the postage from here to Japan would have meant $12.90, air mail. The same cake at regular package cost would take $1.52. But near thirteen bucks postage is a lot of postage any way you look at it, so to speak. And here comes a letter from Burt and which informs me that the coffee gulper ladies of that town have organized an auxiliary coti'ee gulping club with Mrs Paul Webber, the president; Mrs Walter Campney, vice president; Mrs F. L. Ryerson, secretary; Mrs Russell Patterson, treasurer; and the board of directors consists of Mrs Dean Andrews, Mrs T. E. Lagestron and Mrs A. J. Ditmer. It begins to look like the lady coffee lovers of Burt intend to sign up many more members because on account of the fan sex in that town really thinks a lot of their Java, so to speak. Got a letter from a reader whc gets his UDM at Wesley and it sure was an interesting letter. He wrote that ho read my column of bunk weekly and it wasn't weakening him mentally, so he said. He wrote that he had read in the column some time ago a bit of bunk which had the grammer and words all mixed up and he got a kick out of it and so he had also written a mess of mixes and which lie said I could print but tie didn't want his name given the credit for it. And it is unusual, to say the least, but it sure tops word mix-ups, so to speak. Wish I could print nis ruune because on account of i know that folks in his neighborhood are familiar with hi:- grammar and word mix-ups.

The two cars, with their lifelike dummy passengers, are shown in the top photo at the instant of impact. In the second photo, the dummy hi the crash car's right front seat strikes the padded sun visor while the dummy in the driver's seat hits Ford's deep-center steering wheel, which distributes the force and absorbs the energy of the crash. The dummy in the parked car also is restrained by a seat belt. lie momentarily slides over into the seat and then rights himself in the third photo. Although the parked car was struck at a vulnerable spot, all doors remained closed because they were equipped with safety door latches. These pioneer safety devices will appear—for the first time iu automotive history—on 1956 Ford Motor Company cars when ttiey are introduced. Research at Cornell University Medical College shows that almost half of highway injuries result from being thrown out of the car during an accident or because occupants strike the steering wheel, the instrument panel, the sun visor or the rear view mirror. THIS MESSAGE PRESENTED TO YOU BY YOUR LOCAL FORD DEALER: Ford Motor Company today announced that its 1956 cars will feature — for the first time in automotive history — a five-part package of safety devices aimed at substantially reducing injuries to passengers in the event of highway accidents. The safety devices are a result of Ford's pioneer crash-injury program, first in the industry to embody the new safety concept of "packaging the passenger" as a means of limiting injuries. The new injury-prevention study is a companion project to Ford's accident prevention which includes the development of such things as better brakes and improved steering. Announcement of the five-piece safety package was made during he two-day National Safety Forum and Crash demonstration sponsored by Ford at Dearborn, Mich., and attended by almost 100 leading traffic safety specialists from the U. S. and Canada for the purpose of exchanging safety information informally. The new safety features — which will appear when the 1956 cars are introduced — include: 1. A deep-center safety steering wheel which slowly gives way under crash impact, thus absorbing the energy and distributing it over the driver's chest. This, engineers explain, is safer than steering wheels which collapse under impact, exposing the driver to the steering column. Automobile crash injury studies at Cornell University Medical College show almost 40 per cent of all injured drivers are hurt on the steering assembly. 2. Safety door latches, designed to prevent the door from springing open under impact, thus giving the passenger added protection against being thrown out into the road. Research by Indiana State Police and at Cornell indicates a passenger's chances of escaping injury in an accident are twice as great if he remains within the protective shell of the vehicle. 3. Seat belts which are structurally anchored to the vehicle with a steel plate. The restraining belts not only help retain an occupant inside the vehicle, but also reduce the possibility of his being thrown against the instrument panel, header bar and windshield area. Belts will be available for both the front and back seats in 1 956 models. 4. Crash cushioning which will be available for the instrument panel and sun visors. The padding, five times more shock-absorbent than sponge, depresses under impact and distributes the force over a wider area of the head or body. Cornell research indicates that about 38 per cent of the injured front and center seat passengers are hurt on the instrument panel. 5. Safety rear view mirrors which have a specially prepared backing to reduce the possibility of glass falling out when shattered. Research indicates about four per cent of ail injuries to front seat passengers in accidents are received on the mirror. In addition, Ford has redesigned the mirror frame and the front and back seat supports to reduce the possibility of seats coming loose under severe shock. Cornell researchers have found that almost half of all injuries suffered in automobile accidents are received on the steering wheel, the instrument panel, the mirror, or by being ejected from the vehicle. The new Ford concept of "packaging the passenger" is based on the principle of first trying to keep passengers within the vehicle during an accident, and then designing car components to help occupants absorb the energy of the crash. Each of the devices has undergone numerous evaluation tests in the field, including simulated accidents in which life-like dummies rode in cars which were crashed into each other or into concrete and earth barriers. NEW SAFETY CONCEPT—A 167-pound wood block simulating! the body of an average automobile driver is shown as it crashes into' a 1956 Ford steering wheel, which embodies the new Ford safety concept of packaging the passenger in case of an accident. The second photo shows the wheel as it absorbs the energy of the impact. In the third photo, the block rebounds and shows bow the wheel rim protected it from the steering column. Research at Cornell University Medical College shows almost 40 per cent of all injured drivers are 4>urt on the steering assembly. The wheel is one of Bve new safety features which will be offered—for the first time in automotive history—on 1956 Ford ( Motor Company cars. Corner State & Jones Sts. T MOTOR CO Phone 434, Algona
