These conditions call for additional care on the part of both the pedestrian and the motorist. Pedestrians, intent on the serious question, What shall I buy Mary? are very likely to dash across Intersections heedless of traffic signals. Arms will be loaded with packages, obscuring the shopper's vision. MotorUU will have to anticipate any emergency and be alert at all times. Let us all do our part to make this a Merry Christmas. Not one of us would want to be responsible for an accident which would spoil the peace and happiness of anyone during the holiday »«a»on. Let us keep the thought of safety uppermost in our minds at all times.
