Iowa Highway Patrol Issues 6,037 Summonses Iowa highway patrolmen traveled 1,814,425 miles during the first three months of 1948. In that time they issued a total of 6,037 summons to erring motorists. The figures were included in the quarterly activity report of Patrol Chief S. N. Jespersen. Patrolmen handed out summons to 235 drunken drivers during the 3-month period. March, when 82 intoxicated motorists were caught, was the worst month of the three for tipsy driving. More than 94% of the drivers who received summons from the patrol, and whose cases have been completed, were convicted or pled guilty. The charges were dismissed in only 173 instances and 2,041 cases are still pending. Jespersen's report showed that summons resulting from moving violations by drivers numbered 4,585 for the period. Moving violations include such traffic law infractions as speeding, failure to obey a stop sign, passing in a prohibited zone and reckless driving. Jail sentences totaling 33 years, 5 Mi days were handed out to drivers who had received summons from the patrol. Fines paid by motorists as the result of the patrol's enforcement activities in January, February and March totaled $99,528.55. Fines levied in cases carried over from 1947 amounted to $10,093.15. The report revealed that patrolmen gave 3,706 memoranda to motorists guilty of minor traffic errors. They also notified 13,628 drivers that their cars had illegal or faulty equipment. Patrolmen gave assistance to 6,786 drivers who were having trouble on Iowa's highways during the first three months of 1948.

They are the homemakers who are taking part in the "family living" program, and their slogan, "Toda's Home Builds/ Tomorrow's World," sets the theme for cooperative efforts to make Iowa's homes happier, healthier and more secure. They receive the nation's recognition during the week of May 2 to 10, National Home Demonstration Week, along with 3% million homemakers of the United States, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico who are members of the program. These women are taking a voluntary part in the world's most far- reaching on-the-job program. Sharing the spotlight are Iowa's county home economists, who are members of the Extension Service at Iowa State College. College graduates with a degree in home economics, or homemakers who have received special training, these wom.en are ready to help Iowa homemakers with any project^ from remodeling a wardrobe to refurnishing a home. Last year 4,000 more Iowa women took part in the family living program. With the 66,000 homemakers who were members in 1946, they started attending the family living meetings, where they discuss any thting from preparation of nutri tions meals to management of bust ness matters. Homemakers plan their own topics for these get-togethers, and the range of subjects is broad and absorbing. This year, more and more meetings are being devoted to learning how to buy and use the new electrical equipment. Pressure saucepans and home freezers, those postwar developments, come in for their share of attention. And the studies are adding new sparkle to everything. Homemak ers have been asking for "lessons' on crisp new salars, on delicious desserts, to perk up the family meals. They want more "color harmony" in their homes. Farm grounds will be beautiful, too, with new knowledge about landscaping the home grounds. Fortified with a background of better buymanship lessons, these homemakers are facing high prices with level heads. Many of them have been remodeling their homes, and doing a good job of it, at a minimum cost. Children come in for their share of attention. School problems and the teen-agers have the floor in most of the current sessions. For ways to build family comradship and.good items, homemakers have been demanding lessons on;"living together in the family." And their interests have advanced far beyond the four walls of their homes. The school lunch program is going ahead rapidly, backed by their efforts to rear healthy youngsters. They are keeping up to date on international relations for that "better world" they're building toward. Music gets attention, as do health drivers and current books. Homemakers groups are now organized in every Iowa county. In 70 counties a trained home economist is stationed to help the homemakers. In other counties, homemaker leaders obtain training from the state home economics extension specialist at the college. In turn, they take the information to | their communitiese.
