Department of Agricultine, William C. Crow says, "Laige city markets now receive about half their supply of frosh fruits and vegetables by motor truck. A survey in 1U3C le- vealed that nearly 45 per ctnt of the supply of 40 cities was transposed by motor -- New York City, about 10 per cent; Philndcdlphia, 45; Boston, 33%. The figures ranged up to 72 per cent for Atlanta and 83 for Los Angeles." Mr. Crow further states, "The use of the motor truck in moving produce from grower to consumer has resulted in many economics. The produce is picked up at the farm and moved directly to the market. Frequently delivery is made direct to retail stores. The number of handlings is reduced. Costs of transportation arc often less than short-haul or less-tlian-carloa.l or rail rates. Speedier delivery reduces losses from spoilage." But don't lost sight of the important part played by the highway!

There will be Sunday evening devotions in St. Benedict's Church at 7:30. tables, the truck drivers must be nblc to depend on the road! If the highway is not a good one and safe to travel at a rate that will guarantee the I speedy delivery referred to in Mr. Crow's statement, the ability of tho vehicle itself and the skill of the driver will mean very little in achieving the desired goal. In this respect, it ib well to remember that all produce must first travel over secondary roads before it gets to a point where it can be transported over tho main or trunklinc highways into tho various cities. Good farm-to-markct roads are, therefore, just as necessary to the process of moving produce from grower to consumer as arc the main highways. I am going to make use of only a few figures to give you a further conception of tho extent of motor truck use in the transportation of perishable goods and other commodities. There arc 4,241,000 trucks in operation today on the highways of this country and more than 3,100,000 drivers are employed to operate them. Take the delivery of milk, for example, which is so important to the children of any community. Statistics show that 21 leading citis receive nearly all of their milk supply by motor truck, which means that the milk must be hauled each day over the highways from the outlying countryside to the city outlets. Such metropolitan centers as Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Detroit, Spokane and Minneapolis receive 100 per cent of their daily milk supply via the highways. Who, therefore, can contest the statement that a system of good and safe highways is a vital and absolutely necessary adjunct to the business of keeping the inhabitants of our cities and towns well fed. , BURRSVILLE Mr. and Mrs. John L.

The magic of polarization of light in ita application to tho problem of night driving was presented for the first time by the Club at the Philadelphia Automobile Show to demonstrate the possibilities of accident reduction by elimination of headlight glare. Motorists arc amazed by the effect produced by the use of polarizing screens on windshield and headlight lenses. Blinding glare instantly disappears when the screens, resembling camera film, arc in place, permitting a clear view to the right of the opposing headlights. Applied to moving vehicles, this means a total absence of glare, with corresponding visibility of objects along the roadway. Night accidents, particularly those involving pedestrians, would be reduced to a minimum through universal adoption of polarized light, Club officials declare. The purpose of the demonstration, it is explained, is to show the advances already made in polarization, although actual equipment of vehicles with polarizing screens is not immediately in prospect. To solve the glare problem, it i? pointed out, all vehicles must use the screens, on both windshields and headlights. Countrywide revision of the law's lighting requirements will be tho first big step in meeting the problem. This explanation of the method of polarizing is made by Club engineers: "The light from the opposing headlamps is a mass of wnvcs vibrating in all directions. It is blinding in its intensity. By lowering the polarizing screen over the headlamps, only parallel waves are transmitted. Tho glare is diminished, but not eliminated. It disappears, however, when the opposing lights are viewed through a similar polarizing screen, tho piano of polarization of wihich is at right angles to the transmitted rays. The planes of polarization of both headlight and viewing screen arc arranged at 45 degrees to the horizontal." The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money. --Thomas Jefferson.

H. Rilcy, Director of the State Dc- artmcnt of Health, advises housi.- ccpers, as an extra precaution, to .akc a look at their pantry shelve* cfore settling down to winter rou- ne. "Be sure," he said, "that you have ot left a box of roach powder or a an of rat poison on the shelf with our baking powder, or a jar of pois- nous silver polish or something else qually dangerous, side by side with our pancake flour, your flavoring xtracts and spices, your tea and cof- ce cannistcrs, your sugar and salt takers, and the rest of the equipment in daily use. When you leave lings of this sort around you arc unning a terrific risk. "Over 00 cases of poisoning due to meat product, accidentally, heavily ontaminatcd, in some way, with rsenic, were reported to the State epartmcnt of Health, recently from ic Western part of the State. All of ic cases were traced to a common ource. Fortunately, thiough the roinpt action of the physicians, local ospitals, the county health department and tho county authorities, all f the cases were treated promptly, nd all recovered. Somt of the victims ere critically ill; many had a lighty close call. "Things of this sort, never happen ntentionally. They arc usually, due o carelessness in keeping poison ou-; ompounds in the same place with ouschold supplies; to the absence of libels; or to absent-mindedly failing o read the labels even when the cor ainers are properly marked. "Accidents of thfe sort can happen nywhcrc and in any home--nnd are kely to happen--unless every pos- ible precaution is taken to prevent icm. There are a few simple common-sense safeguards which can be ollowcd without any trouble. First: Have a special place for ny supplies that may be a source of anger. Don't keep insecticides, plant prays, rat poison, any other poisons r chemicals u^ed for household pur- osc, in the kitchen cabinet, the pan- ry or on the shelves where you keep ouschold supplies, food, pots and ans or nny other utensils it-ed In reparing food for tho table. "Second: No matter where you :ecp these dangerous supplies, sec hat every container is piopeily lab- led. Replace the labels when they all off. Dispcx-c safely of the con- aincrs, when their contents havf een used. "Third: Keep these dangerous sup- ilies--and of course, nil drugs, anil medicines--out of the reach of chil- Ircn, whether member? of the fnm- ly or visitors." THANK YOU For your vote, your expression of onfidcncc. The election is over--wu lave returned to normalcy. As for me, shall do nil that is possible to give good account of my stewardship. WM. M.
