TEXAS SOCIAL SECURITY As one item of its social security program, the State of Texas has aided more than 1,100 crippled children during the period from last September to June 1. The aid, which included hospitalization, the supplying of braces and other medical and surgical attention, was made possible largely through state coordination with the national social .security program and the matching of state funds with federal funds. So efficiently has the Crippled Children's division of the Texas Department of Vocational Education been'ad- ministered that no crippled child entitled to aid now need wait longer than 48 hours before receiving attention. The Old Age Assistance program, which begins functioning July 1 with payment of the first assistance checks, is considered one of the most important items in the Texas social security program but in all the talk about Old Age Assistance we should not lose sight of these other extremely important items in vocational rehabilitation work, both for crippled children and disabled adults. Up until the last legislature, the department had never had a state appropriation sufficient to meet the appropriation which was made by the Federal Board of Vocational Education in Washington. The latest legislature increased the amouiit to train disabled civilians in the State of Texas from $31,500 to §47,500. In other words, up until the last legislature approximately $16,000 which Texas was entitled to was not being received. It has been of very material help today, helping the disabled citizens in Texas become self supporting. Hundreds of disabled adults are in training today for a remunerative occupation. Crippled children in Texas are today receiving $266,000, which ranks Texas as one of the leading states in handling crippled children. TEMPORARILY DANGEROUS No doubt scientists and traffic officials and road builders will eventually figure out ways to eliminate a large proportion of automobile accidents and deaths. But that day make come too late for you. Unless safety efforts begin to produce results, there'U probably be around a million automobile injuries and 36,000 automobile deaths a year, in America for some time to come. Education of drivers and traffic regulations and improved street lighting and better law enforcement can no doubt cut these figures clown two-thirds some. time. But you may not be here to enjoy this increased safety. In the meantime, you've got to take care of yourself— and family. You'd better be your own safety expert. The first things the experts do is to study figures. They look for the danger spots and the danger hours, and give particular attention to such spots and hours. You should drive always like a person on a street marked "Temporarily Dangerous." Most of our streets and roads will some clay be two-thirds safer than they are now. In the meantime, proceed with caution, as statistics on automobile accidents show many deaths and injuries occur when people least expect danger. BARBS Maxie Baer now is an orchestra leader. He wasn't so hot in the ring, but perhaps he'll have a better baton average. Maybe the Wisconsin professor, who has a horror of venturing far from his home ought to pay that debt and get it over with. First step in event of automobile or clan trouble: Look under the hood. John Roosevelt To Be Candidate, Newspaper Says BOSTON, June 15, (IP}— The American says in a copyrighted story James Roosevelt, eldest son of the president, is ready to run for congress in the 9th Massachusetts district, now represented by Richard M.
