Approximately »hree out of our traffic fatalities result from vehicles coming into contact with pedestrians. Safety education has helped to reduce the number of fatalities among school children, and from experience in various cities we know that adult education in safety is also effective in reducing the number of accidents. Laws and regulations alori'j will not prevent accidanu. The idea of carefulness must be instilled in the minds of our citizens, and until the time comes when every man, woman and child is safety conscious, little progress can be expected. Safety meetings, lectures, movies, posters, and articles in newspapers and magazines will all help to educate the public and lo keep the important problem of safety uppar- ruost in the minds of pedoatruuu and motorists. .

When little Donald talks over the telephone to his Cousin Dick, he is using a service that requires throughout the United States more than 300,000 telephone workers and over four billion dollars worth of telephone property. Telephone requirements of communities differ greatly. In every community, it is our practice to h»ve ready at the command of all telephone users the tele* phone men and women and equipment necessary to provide the service required. The job of furnishing satisfactory telephone service at present revenues is becoming tremendously difficult because of greatly increased taxes and wages. Continuous improvements in equipment and methods of operation can only partially offset these increased expenses.
