AN ODE TO THE CHOPTANK RIVER Dear Old River, as I sit upon your hank, While the sun is sinking low, And gaze upon your loveliness In the sunset's ruddy glow; My thoughts return to childhood days The happy dayu of yore, When I was as carefree as the wind That played with me on the shore. In the joys of childhood, Old River, You played an active part. And as time sped on, I found That you "had crept into my heart. I selected a .?pot on the hillside For my last, long, restful sleep; And I knew that it would be peaceful While you flowed along at my feet. But time has brought many changes, And now I can find no trace Of the spot which I chose in my childhood For my final resting place. But years may come, and years may go, Nought can our friendship sever, For you'll keep flowing on, and on, And I shall live forever. And now my song is ended, Yet I linger upon your bank. And the sun is gone, but still you arc Beautiful, Old Choptank. OLIVIA P. ROE. BAN .FAST DRIVING TO BANISH DEATH, SAYS PROVIDENCE Death hju been driven from the streets of one large American city by the application of common sense, report T. E. and E. J. Murphy in the Rotarian Magazine. Providence, R. I., with a record of 125 deathless days, has proved that slow driving is safe driving. Its death rate Qf only 4.7 for the first six months of 1938 was the lowest for cities of its size in tho United States, according to the National Safety Council. During the same period nnnfatal traffic accidents were reduced from 679 to 2C7. When an analysis of fatal accidents occurring over a period of years showed that in 85 pur cent of the coses speed was n major factor in the fatality, traffic officials cut the top speed limit to 25 miles an hour. Though warned well in advance, motorists howled when the police--always out whore they could bo seen-cracked down, but, enlightened, they soon teamed up to make their city one of the safest in tho United States. Uncompromising enforcement and safety education have given life-not death--the green light in Providence. cral county candidates on the Republican ticket, visited town on Wednesday morning.

Farm Bureau lender,; from Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne's, Caroline and Talbot counties, at a recent meeting in Chestcrtown, decided to actively oppose the proposed amendment to the State Constitution providing nn additional judge in the second judicial circuit, which is composed of the five counties named. Objections to the amendment are made for -the following reasons: 1. If ratified by the voters of Maryland, it will mean an additional burden on Maryland's taxpayers. The salary of an associate judge is $8500 per year. 2. That the situation whereby the northern end of the circuit has no judge is temporary as Cecil County or -Kent will have the opportunity to elect a judge in 1942 due to the retirement of Judge Keating by that time. 3. To take care of the needs of Cecil County one of the three present judges visits Elkton one day in each week. This is in addition to the regular sessions of the court. 4. Tfie fact that the amendment stipulates that the proposed judge must come from Cecil County is not fair to the other counties in the circuit. and Mrs. Edgar Blades. Mrs. Chaa.

ACCIDENT BREEDERS The nation-wide reduction in highway fatalities this year challenges the mobilized forces of the traffic safety, movement to go forward with n yet broader program to combat existing maladjustments, tsnid Wallace Falvey, chairman of the advisory committee of the National Conservation Bureau, recently. Paying tribute to the port state authorities have taken in saving lives, sparing human suffering and protecting property on America's highways, he emphasized that greater uniformity of laws, regulations and administrative practices of motor vehicle departments .would benefit not only the officials charged with motor vehicle control, but also legislators and the great body of motorists. "The multiplicity of traffic control devices and regulations which confront the motorist when he ventures beyond his home territory, create confusion and irritation," he declared. 'And confusion and irritation breed accidents." States and municipalities developed traffic control in a more or leas helter- skelter fashion. No effort was made to achieve uniformity. The consequences arc obvious. A motorist traveling in a strange territory is confused. He drives through overhead control lights, because in his town the lights are placed on sidewalks, or roadsides, or on the pavc T ment itself. He looks in the wrong places for Stop and warning signs. He violates laws incessantly, and unknowingly takes risks that lead to accidents. The time for a change has arrived. We have managed to start the accident curve downward. And the inauguration of a movement to standardize traffic control devices and regulations would help keep it going down.

COMPARATIVE DISTANCES An official statement, blessed by authority of the United States Government, says that American motorists will drive nearly 300 billion miles in 1938. With a long lend in the barrel of s\ fancy pencil tho riddle can be worked by estimating the average miles per car, multiplied by about 30 million drivers. You don't need to "ask Rip- Icy". But it couldn't be done in the day:of the old square-top cars. The official conjurer says that in 1027 the American motorists did not go half as far, nil together. In 1012 an automobile advertisement read: 'The car that I now bring out is regarded by me as pretty close to finality .!. I do not believe that a car materially better will ever be built". The motor car industry has never stood still--each year has witnessed added mechanical improvements, better values and more artistic offerings. The new models of 1938 arc unquestionably superior in every way and have bettor values than any of their predecessors. Lust August was the highest travel-fever month of the year, packed with vacation-hunters, many of whom had two or three weeks for relaxation. They had nt their disposal the advantages of modern speed and super-highways, giving time to cover the national parks and visit «ny part of the United States. It is also important to note the fact that the tourists spend 5 billion dollars a year and that 80 per cent of the travelers use their automobiles. Farm products are bringing abou half or less money than what it cost to produce them, and they, (the fai niers) arc- at their wits end to kno\ how to make their ends meet finan dally. There is talk nmong the state poli liciiins to increase the pay of th (school teachers. That hounds good fo 'the school teachers. "I would like U ask these politicians what do the- school teachers know or do that ren tiers their services so valuable?" Art. you politician? just pulling off a po Iitical ,=tunt or arc you trying to wreck the farmers and business men with taxes? This relief stuff. Taxing farmers hard earned living so as to employ a few office holders, that run arounc the county, anil donate what tax mon ey they don't'need for themselves to a few humans that ought to be placet m the or forced to hun work and earn a living. Nine thousand dollars has been np preprinted to the old age pension by the Into county commissioners. At the present rate farm products arc bring- yin'n^ 1 wi " J! ost the farmers fiom 518,000 to $20,000 to produce this 59,000. Do farmers and business men owe humanity n pension because they mve existed above this terra firms G5 years? If they do not, then this must be a form of tyranny, probably confiscation of-property with no bene- r it to the victim or donor. The alm.shouse used to take care of nir unfortunate -aged some lime ago After reading a statement by Miss Shockloy (a relief employee) in a local paper, that the "condition of tho ilmshousc was intolerable," I drove out to look the place over and found a $10,000 building for the inmates in lice shape, clean and sanitary, nicely ixed for heating in cold weather, con- ented inmates, a courteous manager ·ind a farm in apparent good shape. Jnly $2,000 has been appropriated for the upkeep of this institution and its inmates, and it is capable of taking cnre of n good many more. This outfit has always tnkn care of our unfortunates in tho county for a total sum of $2,500. This relief and old age pension now costs the local and federal government close to $50,000. The federal government is reported to be 33 billion dollars in arrears. The stnte of Ohio has cancelled this old age pension stuff. They saw they could not keep it up. Do the readers of the Journal think we can keep it up? There are two classes of candidates on the ticket. There nrc liberals nnd conservatives. Our judgment day is nt hand. Will you vote a straight Republican or Democratic ticket or will you pick out the conservatives from the liberals or vice versa? I am talking to you, taxpayers. · A^ G. GELLETLY.
