A sum of something over $15 comprised the receipts of each of the sponsoring organizations which will be used to carry out certain projects in which they are respectively interested. Just stand on any street intersection, or at any crossroad, or along the country road and note the act- Ions of some of these crazy automobile drivers. They think they lave exclusive rights to the highway and that all other automobile drivers and pedestrians have absolutely no rights at all. Of course, the automobile driver nas certain rights prescribed by law, but to violate all acts of decency by excessive speed, by cutting in and out, 'and by endangering the lives of pedestrians and other automo- biel drivers, is not anybody's right The right to live is more sacred than the rigltt to drive.
