MANY INJURED IN SAME TIME More people have been killed and en times as many Injured by auto- nobllee in the'last 18 months than I he "number oC American soldiers I nd sailors killed or Injured during] he World war, B. F, Sorenaon told' he Klwartls club last Thursday. Mr. i Sorensen, who is a member oC the' lub, was speaklnt? for Hagg post, Which has joined In a statewide trivo for the reduction of automo- lle accidents. ; In the war there 'were 50,000 American deaths, and 182,000 Amer- cans were wounded or otherwise njured, while In the 18 months end- ng December 31, 1932, 53,000 Amer- cans were killed and 1,586,000 inured In automobile accidents. The accidents are scattered throughout >ur vast territory, so the number in .single community, except in metropolitan districts, is not large. Yet hey add to make a total which is startling. ' Two Billions In Damage. In 1931 automobiles also accounted for no less than $2,500,000,000 in American property damage, while he total expense of operating schools of all- kinds In this country was $200,000,000 under that figure. Phese statistics have caused general alarm. Yet the number of accidents continues to grow ai a fearful rate. :n 1917 there were 10,000; In 1922, 15,000; in 1927, 25,000; in 1931, 34,000. ' This is an increase of 350 )er cent in 15 years. There are .few unavoidable accidents, Mr. Sorensen said. To illus- rate how preventable accidents may be decreased the experience of street car companies was cited. Agl- atlon and strict enforcement of aws or ordinances requiring automobiles to • stop while streets cars are unloading has reduced the num- jer of accidents to less than one per cent of the former total. The greatest number of automo- >lle accidents occurs when, the offending driver does not have the right-of-way. Here risks are taken which could have been avoided. Exceeding the speed limit accounts for 10 per cent of the number of accidents, and here again is an unnecessary risk taken by drivers. Cutting in ahead of another car causes per cent of the number of accidents. Intersections Most Dangerous. The greater number of accidents occurs at intersections, and this Is where the cautious driver should be most watchful. Many accidents oc- cur'when cars bob unexpectedly out of little used lanes or private driveways. Such accidents can be avoided by drivers .who exercise judgment at all. Laws requiring stops Before entering a main highway should be rigidly enforced. Night-driving accounts for many accidents. Mr. Sorensen cited the following percentages of causes: running off grades, 23.9%; speed, 14.7; no right of way, 11; recklessness, 9.7; wrong side of road, 8; skidding, 6.5. There are now comparatively few accidents at railroad crossings. This la because of a tremendous drive to educate the public against such accidents was inaugurated a few years ago by the railroads and the newspapers. As a result only the most reckless drivers now cross a railroad track before looking both ways. Accidents at railroad crossings are spectacular, Mr. Sorensen commented, and so command unusual newspaper space, as a result of which the public considers railroad crossings dangerous, which, of couree, they are, but it should not be overlooked that, there are other dangers of even more Importance, now that moat drivers have been taught to "s(;op, look', and listen" before venturing to cross a railroad. "PUTAMOTAKE"TOURNEY IS WON BY H. N, WEBSTER H. N. Webster won the "put and take" blllard tourney at the Hub last Thursday night, when he played a;'final championship round against Robert Colllnson.

SOUTH DAKOTANS SEND THANKS FOR DONATED GRAIN Jos. Bloom, of Hagg post of the American Legion, has received two letters from Herrick, S. D., farmers expressing gratitude for the car of cc*n recently shipped to that point from Algona. Mrs. 'C. A; Wilson & Sons wrote under date of February 28: "We are writing to thank you for your kind deed in sending feed foi the livestock' of this grasshoppei and drought-stricken- region. It was Godsend, for the stock had been suffering from hunger. Many thanks also to the Red Cross and other Iowa friends. May God help you also if a time of need ever arises." The other letter was signed. "Affectionately yours, The J. C. Smith Family," and was as follows: "We are writing a few lines to thank you for helping us out. Today [February 25] we' received our share of the car of corn you sent. It was a great help, and we certainly do thank your kind and beloved work "The people of this neighborhood are In the midst of a terrible disaster, and it is most discouraging to think that the grasshoppers may again destroy our crops. They are beginning to hatch already. "Notwithstanding this danger, we are preparing to keep on striving We have wonderful prospects for large crops, and we hope that by the grace of God the prospective bumper crop of grasshoppers wll somehow be destroyed. We have as yet lost but few animals, but our horses are In bad condition foi spring work. If your neighborhood is ever in need and-we can help, we shall certainly be glad to return your kindness. We thank you a thousanc times for your help."

A total of 302 women attended,'with an average attendance of 11. This is wor-. thy of comment when the condition of the roads and numerous stormy days are considered. Many interesting stories might be written concerning 1 methods of transportation, distances traveled by sleds on cold days, how cars had to be scooped out of snowbanks, or how the journey was made -on foot, etc. Household textiles, Lesson No. 3, was taken by the Irvington, Fenton, Riverdale, Plum Creek, and Eagle township women, and block printing, Lesson No. 4, was studied by the women of Greenwood, Ramsey, Grant, Lincoln, Ledyard, Hebron, Harrison, Swea, Lu Verne, German, and Irvington townships.

At each training school leaflets giving an explanation, of how ithe tax dollar is spent and of county Farm Bureau work was given to each woman. Additional furniture reflnished was reported at 17 pieces, and re- caned chairs at 13. A number of women were given gardening help, and farmyard improvement plans. Achievement day plans were discussed at each school. It is the aim of every township chairman- this year to help the best county Achievement day ever held in -Kossuth. It is hoped 'that a program can be planned that will interest all members of every family'. All-day 4-H training schools were held February 15-16, with Miriam Griffith, home 'furnishings specialist, in charge. It was her aim and 'that of the H. D. A. to make the lessons as practical and useable as possible and yet add some inspiration and fun.

The Tuesday meeting was held at the Bancroft public school building, in the home economics room, and there were seven of the nine North End clubs represented, with an attendance .of 18.

Local interest Is added by the fact that P. H. Vesper, former Northwestern station agent here, later cashier of the County Savings bank, was one of six members of the board of directors of the Glendale branch of a great Los Angeles bank who signed a resolution commending Nelson's work on the occasion of the ending of his 20th year with the Institution. The branch was formerly the Bank of G-Iendale, of which Mr. Vesper was cashier. This bank was opened when the well-known suburb was in Its beginnings. It grew rapidly under Mr. Vesper's guidance, and again when Mr.i Vesper retired and Mr. Nelson was promoted to the vice presidency and management. The deposits now aggregate $2,000,000. The resolution of the board expressed appreciation of Mr. Nelson's "long and valued service to •the bank and community," and •praised him; for his loan policy and his good judgment on real estate values in the fast-growing suburb. Mr. Nelson was graduated from the Brltt high school, and then entered the old Britt Citizens bank, for which he was bookkeeper. Then he ssrved as bookkeeper and assistant cashier of the old Security bank at Wesley. After that he was for ten years cashier of the former People's bank at Titonka', where he also served as school director and councilman. For the last 17 years he has been treasurer of the G-lendale Elks-lodge. He is also treasurer of the Glendale property owners' division of the California real estate board. He is vice president of the Glendale Kiwanis club and has for many years been active in behalf of other 'c ganizatlons. Mr. Nelson is married and has three children: Edith Mae, doing special work in music, and Herman Jr. and H. Vincent, sons attending the University of California at Los Angeles.
