"When members of the congregation sought to eject Hocksday from the church, he kicked out the plate glass in the church door.

Traffic Deaths / Are Decreasing (Jly The Associated Pressi CHICAG9, March 30—America's climbing total of traffic deaths was checked last month Jfor the fii-st time since July, 1940, the National Safety council reported today. The February toll was 2,380 a« compared with 2,590 in the same month of 1941. The drop was 8 per cent and end<id 18 months of. continuous increase. Travel Decreased Sharply Since only fragmentary reports on February mileage were available, the council was unable to determine what part; any decrease in travel due to rationing of cars and tires might have playe'd in cutting down the number of fatal injuries. If February travel did fall in proportion to the reduction in deaths, the council pointed out, it was a sharp decrease, because mileage was up 16 per cent in December and 10 per cent in January. The council warned against any feeling of complacency or. the part of the motoring public or a belief that rationing would automatically bring further reductions. "We cannot overlook the facts that 5,490 persons were killed in traffic in the first two months of this year—'only one per cent fewer th?n in the corresponding period of the record- breaking year of 1941," said Col. John Stillwell, president of the council.
