HE CRUCIAL ACCIDENT PERIOD The automobile death and accident ate has shown a steady decline for number of months. But now the rucial test period is at hand. We arc entering the most danger- us driving months. Fall brings rains, o be followed by the ice and snows f winter, all of which immeasurably ncrease driving hazards. Equally im- tortant, these seasons bring shorter ays--and the accident rate at night, 3 much higher than in daylight. The wise driver will prepare for his dangerous period. And prepara- ion should take two form/i. Put your ar in first-class condition, so far as Brakes, lights, tires and steering arc oncerned. And put yourself in the iroper mental condition for safe riving. Never forget that the human lement Ls the responsible factor in he great majority of accidents, Be- ore anyone can drive safely, he must hink safely. He must know the hazards he faces, and be prepared for hem. This "safety consciousness" is he first and most vital esscntiul of accident prevention. Remember that chance-taking isn't clever. Any fool can push the throttle ,o the floorboards, pass on hills and curves, disregard adverse weather conditions, and perform.similar acts of idiotic recklessness. Caution is the product of intelligence. Drive safely all the time. And be especially careful in the fall and winter seasons. Then the accident rate will continue to go down. OUTLAW THEM ALL Representaitve Dies proposes a law "outlawing any'organization which is under the control of a foreign government." This seems to be a step in the right direction because it wil bring a large number of suspicious and fairly innocent societies under a closer study, and determine whethei they are merely meeting for the purpose of honoring the memories of the old home town abroad, or looking for advantages for the fatherlands in a way that is detrimental to the inter cats of the United States as their adopted country. While this is all going on the faci remains that communism and fascisn are expanding beyond limits, in open ly opposing American principles o government. It is time to get out tin swatter, and swat a lot of these fcl lows. Put in that classified advertisement uf mail.

The above achievement both climaxes and typifies the cooperation extended the cattle producers in Maryland and surrounding states by he Esskay Company since the incep- ion of the Baltimore Livestock Show en years ago. It, too, indicates the ine type of beef now being produced n this part of the country nnd sold under the Esskay Brand. These prize cattle have been expertly dressed under U. S. Government Supervision in the Esskay Plant, and will soon be ready for nany Bnltimorcans, and people in the rural section of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, ''few York and North Carolina to dine on a juicy steak or roast from these prize winning cattle and we are quite ure that they will nil become sold on 'Esskay Quality" as a ro-ult.
