Novato Goblins To Paint Windows For Halloween jfabnirtthtttt-lfltttttal, Tuesday, Oc+. 25, 1955 7 SALLY'S SALLIES Kids used to wax windows -in the old days.

(independent-Journal photo) Many Marin Youngsters To Collect For Needy Children On Halloween Several platoons of Marin children who annually participate in Halloween trick or treat shenanigans. this year will carry cans to collect money to buy food and medicine for millions of underprivileged children in 90 countries. Funds collected by American children in about 12,000 communities will be sent to the New York headquarters of UNICEF — United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund. Each country matches UNICEF's aid with almost two dollars for every one received. According to Phyllis Kotite, Marin UNICEF chairman, the drive is being sponsored here by church groups, school organizations, recreation agencies and the Marin chapter, American Assn. for the United Nations. On Halloween — Oct. 31 — the evening before All Hallows or All Saints day, children will go out with their collection boxes wearing armbands or tags. On completion, they will gather at central locations for parties. Miss Kotite pointed out that the price of a comic book will provide six glasses of milk for a child in Korea, the cost of an ice cream cone will pay for a tuberculosis inoculation in Egypt or a dip- theria shot in Chile, while the cost of & coke will pay for 10 bowls of rice for a child in India. '‘This trick or treat’ activity channels the destructive energies of Halloween pranksters into constructive fun,” explained Miss Ko- tote. “Goodwill ambassadors for UNICEF haven’t time to soap windows. “And even though it is a fun project, it enables youngsters to learn about UNICEF and about the people it helps, an important step in preparing them for the leadership which will be theirs tomorrow.” Typical of the work supported by UNICEF is the effort to wipe out eye disease in Morocco, where some 25.000 persons, many of them children, are blind. Seventeen teams of doctors and nurses, supported by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, are in the midst of a three-year campaign against blindness in South Mor­ occo.

Officials of Carey Bros Construction Co. reported Sunday night that youngsters had broken two windshields and a side window on trucks parked at the construction yard. Deputies questioned two 8-year-olds, who admitted breaking some windows but blamed older youths for most of the destruction.

Olive School students will paint the east side; Hill School classes, the highway businesses, and Marion School, the west side and part of the east side. “It’s a bigger school. They need more windows,” explains Mrs. Edwards. For the classes painting the best windows there will be money prizes, Mrs. Edwards said. Students will collaborate at school on the makeup and design of the window, then execute the project in groups or all at once. The paints will be tempera water colors—“washable,” says Mrs. Edwards. Judging of the windows will take place Monday. The painting project is sponsored by thee chamber of commerce, she explained, to save buildipgs from the more destructive Halloween practices. Parnow Reminds Of K|ew Laws Many motorists have failed to realize the changes in the vehicle code according to Capt. T. F. Parnow, commanding officer of the Cailfomia Highway Patrol’s San Rafael area. “Despite extensive publicity given to the new and revised sections of the vehicle code, many motorists continue to drive in violation of these sections.” “Section 525.1 of the vehicle code,” said Parnow, “is particularly stressed in an effort to avoid the congestion caused by drivers who drive at reduced speed. This causes the motorists who drive more closely to the legal speed limit to take unnecessary chances in order to pass.” The code requires any vehicle driven on a highway, at less than the normal speed of traffic, to be driven in the right hand lane nearest the right curb or edge of the roadway, except when passing or preparing to make a left turn. This section primarily concerns the multiple lane highway. In addition. Section 514 of the vehicle code states that no person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, except when such reduced speed is necessary for safe operation. The life span of the sparrow is usually four years. Drive the New Mile-Shrinker The Fabulous wFbnOac Introducing a Big and Vital General Motors ‘Automotive First”!
