Motorists Warned On School Safety Rules School bells arc ringing again in Iowa this week and this poses an increased responsibility for all drivers is the warning issued today by Frank Ulish, Director of Field activities of the Safety Education division of the Department of Public Safety. The Department is cooperating with the National Safety Council and the American Legion of Iowa in a Child Safety month program. Give then a "brake" Ulish said, with vacation over, and children going back to school, drivers must 'be extra careful. All of us must see that the children are as safe as possible on the streets, he added, the safety of our children is a job for the whole community, the parents, the police, school officials, and every club and organization that numbers motorists, parents or young people among its members. Back to schol safety pointers listed by Ulish are: 1. Motorists, please give the kids a "brake" by using special caution in residential areas, school zones, and wherever you see them. 2. Parents, see that your children know the safest route to school, and that they know how to behave safely in traffic (you set the example). 3. Older boys and girls, help the youngsters in traffic, they'll follow your example, you know, make it a good one. 4. Younger children, obey all traffic officers and school safety patrols. Stay out of the street, except when crossing with the signal, and then only at the intersection, never in the middle of the block. Last year in this country 2,400 children from 5 to 14 years of age (school age) were killed in traffic accidents, arid thousands more were injured on our streets. Ulish suggests that all motorists consider all children on the streets a human caution sign, and this includes kids on bicycles, tricycles, motor bikes, scooters, etc. The following which WHS taken from a letter written by Margaret Flynn of Chicago to Mrs. William Leui, may be of interest to those who will remember the Dr. Flynn family that lived here a number of years ago. Miss Flynn is secretary to Pirie II of the firm of Carson, Pirie, Scott & Company, of Chicago, Illinois. Dear Mrs. Leui: The Flynn family is rather widely scattered. You may know that Melissa died about three years ago. Eleanor is with the Red Cross Midwest Headquarters in St. Louis, supervising their Home Service program and in their training division. Laura is on the faculty and directing research work at the University of Missouri. Hildegarde and her family live out in Greeley, Colorado, while Charles and his family live in Clarinda, Iowa, where he practices medicine. Occasionally I submit squibs to the White Collar Girl and sign myself Greta from her Vantage Point. The last few years I have ghostwritten several articles on finance and real estate. Remember me to your family and my friends in Postville. Sincerely, Margaret L. Flynn.
