Johnson announc- s the designation of the week of Oc- ober 2 to 8, 1938, as "National Letter Writing Week." The Post Office De- artmcnt, in conjunction with Manu- acturers and Business, is encourag- ng letter writing. Every effort should- e made to reply promptly to cor- cspondcnce and thus overcome the ault common to all, to put off writ- ng the letter that hns been prom- sed, or is long overdue. Centuries ngo the art of letter writing was almost lost, and intel- ectual progress at a standstill. Through a revival of communication, here was a revival in commerce which brought about a general moral uplift of the people. National Letter Writing Week hould revive our general interest. A ctter to someone gives the same thrill as experienced upon the receipt of one. Praise, encouragement, nterest, consideration and gratitude may be conveyed by letter. It docs not matter how or what 1; said, but ts beauty lies in the fact that it is a letter. No business, no individual, built on ;he "write-n-lcttcr" rule has ever 'ailed. You get letters back. You gel help from unexpected sources, am' all that is given in a letter will be returned a thousandfold. The most useful of all the arts is letter writing. A personal letter is good to get, for it needs no excuse. Pigs For Sale.--T. Sidney Collins Federalsburg, Md.

JEWARE OF THIS DEADLY HAZARD Check your car for carbon mon- xide leaks," advises the Engineer- ng Department of the Keystone .utomobile Club,, in n bulletin warn- ng of the hazard caused by this in- dious enemy of motoring. On the basis of investigations rc- cntly completed in California, it is elievcd that many otherwise unox- lained highway accidents are due to rivers unknowingly breathing dan- crous amounts of escaping exhaust ascts. · Reports on the investigations have ust been received by William S. Caning, Engineering Director of the lub. In two per cent of the ve- icles tested by the California High- ay Patrol the carbon monoxide con- cntration was found potentially dan- erous. The source of the trouble was traced one or more of the following dc- ects in the exhaust system: Loose exhaust pipe manifold con- cction, blown-out exhaust gasket, racked gasket exhaust manifold, aky muffler or faulty design of the xhaust system. Exhaust gases scaping "from these defects may cn- cr the vehicle in large quantities ithout the driver being aware of ic danger, it is asserted. "Motorists generally," said Mr. aiming, "realize the danger of ear- on monoxide in closed garages, al- lough annually many are killed hrough failure to take proper prc- autious. The danger to drivers on the pen road has not been sufficiently mphasizcd. It now appears, however, mt accidents involving experienced rivers traveling along straight high- ays under eafe operating conditions lay be caused by carbon monoxide ·ndcring the operators less efficient, nhnlation of the gases may cause endache, sleepiness, weakness, im- aircd judgment and decreased driv- g ability."
