Al- L;OH;I, and Joyct' Hiiyui'ii, public READ ABOUT STONIMO GRANITE CRIT Advertised in this month's Farm & Home Section CLOVERLEAF HATCHERY & FEED Higher Losses, Less Accidents Here In 1955 The annual accident report from the Iowa Department of Public Safety, which was released this week, proved one fact that seemed quite obvious all the time —- 1955 was a big year for accidents and property loss. The number of auto accidents in Kossuth county dropped from 464 in 1954 to 437 in 1955, but total valuation of property loss and personal injuries increased from S252.880 to $309,665 during the same period. There were 54,877 accidents reported in the state, 4,008 more than during 1954, and total property loss and personal injuries amounted to $28,924,024, compared with $27,638,77.9 in 1954, which prompted Safety Commissioner Clinton Moyer to state "this is an almost incredible outline of general public indifference to the total problem of public safety." With the present accident death rate far ahead of the record at the same date in 1955, it seems probable the 1956 record will be even more tragic than in previous years.
