6 Gfllfsburg Jftjfl|3tef:Matl,_ Galesburg, II Tuesday, Jujy 10, 1973 AUi Cos^ A J, By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YORK (Wt) - Pride goeth before a fall, we've always heard. False pride is something else again...often it goeth before an accident. The latter is becoming increasingly apparent in the safety field. "False pride may wear the flimsiest costume of all- ignorance of danger," says the National Safety Council. An elderly man persists in driving his car even though he has lost his reflexes, hearing or eyesight to a degree. A middle-aged woman refuses to admit her fading youth by wearing glasses, even though her vision is seriously impaired without them. Men and women, young and old, refuse to stop working or playing when they become tired.

Mr. and Mrs. Weir were married July 14, 1923 in Chicago. The couple has no children, but have many nieces and nephews residing in Gads/burg. Miss Mary Clark warnings, speed limits, safety belts, safety glasses, safety catches— all are ignored. And no weight is too heavy, no staircase too dark, no (ask too hard. Not for the future victim of false pride." So reports "Family Safety", publication of the National Safety Council, in an article "Do You Still See Hie You That Was?" "Perhaps television bam boozles us," says council. "On the screen we see an exciting, adrenalin-inspired series of dangerous vocations and avoca tions. High-walking ironworkers and low-flying crop dusters; sky divers and scuba divers; top-notch athletes who push themselves to the outer limits of their endurance. And they all make it look so easy. "But easy it isn't. Nor is it safe. Unless, like the experts, you first invest huge amounts of training and experience. Their pride isn't false; it's tried and true." Lessons to Unlearn Modern brain-washing to ig nore safety rules may start with lesson number one —the first skinned knee accompanied by the announcement that big boys (or girls) don't cry. Lesson number two may be the Spartan theme of "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." And "full flowering," says the council, "may be reached in lesson three — either directly or indirectly—a9 one either plays or reads about modern, high pressure football—"Football isn't a game; it is war." "It took years of head injuries, many of them fatal, for the helmet to become acceptable in football, baseball...motorcycling," it says. "Yet even today, the helmet is sitill spurned by a few diehards... "The industrial hard hat encountered equal resistance. Its eventual acceptance was due in part to jauntier styling and a color code that identified each man's trade, so that each hard hat became a legitimate badge of honor..." We need to remember that playing it safe isn't playing it cowardly ... that avoiding accidents is something of which to be truly proud. Otherwise, says the council, "We will continue to have the same old disappointing safety statistics year after year—in the air, on the highway, even in the home."
