Last year the traffic deaths ed 37,100, which was an increase of tola 1,60 000 I over the 1950 mark. The injury t soured to 1,062,600, up some 160,000 the 1950 mark. he report shows that more t.hnn 13,persons were killed and 570,000 in- jurejl by drivers who were exceeding the legal speed limit.8. Excessive spend was "faif and nway the most dangerous mis- .tahtl i nnd fata in driving in 1951. he report notes't hut 11,000 drive 11 !* r 25 years of age were involved in accidents and 416,000 more in pcr- ·ona! Injury accidents. Alcomparison of 1951 with 1950 shows that pedestrian deaths were "held in ehec k' 1 while injuries were reduced by near !y 9,000. . 'thcr interestiiiK facts about the accident!: S iturday was the most dangerous day of tie week to drive, nnd more persons lost theif lives during the hours from 6 to 7 p.3n., than in any other one hour. In- jurtH hit their peak two hours earlier, frorf 4 to 5 p. m... IJIncly per cent of the drivers in- Tolvtd in accidents last year were males. flHnety : sevcn per cent of the drivers in- volvM in accidents in 1951 had at least one yeaeof experience behind the wheel. I flirty-eight per cent of last year'* fata -accidents occurred on the open Mjfh- way fhere were 92 per cent more fatal ac- eidchtg on icy roadi last year than in 1950. Since It in a well known fact that the American public pays a heavy total cost for iiccfdent and liability insurance, and that; if the accident rate keeps going up the tost of insurance coverage is Roinif up stilljmore, it behooves each driver to take gome notice of the situation and attempt to lower the number of accidents. A news' ' ·tori 1 a few days ago revealed that as the pricf of carrying insurance goes up, the numwer who can'afford to pay for a sub- ntan$!al protection goes down.' If costs go far enough, a number of. motorists can be pric*d,rlght out of the market, which would be bad not only for the insurance companies, but for*thc general public as veil; §o, when we endeavor to see that there ,«re fewer accidents which maim or kill-- '·' or rtwcr crashes of any sort, for that mnt- tcr-fwe are helping ourselves. We are pro- tcctfcg our skins, and our pocketbooks as wrllj II is entirely true that some ··ci-idnnls appair to be unavoidable. But if excessive speed causes the greater'proportion of the · wrecks, we can certainly cut. down on that clim )ing rate by slowing down. llTiatevor we can do us individuals to decrease the number of accidents would bs tt our advantage to try. Sone prcnehps better Uian the ant, ·nd the says nothing.--Franklin. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·y DHEW PEARSON Washington--Queen Juliana of Holland made a hit everywhere she went, hut with no one more than Harry Truman himself. She flabber- (astrd, but pleased HST by telling him nt a farewell dinner party that historians would record him and Dwn Acheson as doing more than any two men In this era to stop Communism in Western Europe . .'. "I wish," mused the man who has taken more of a beating than any other recent president, "that 1 could be around to read the history books." Bii; Army shake-up--General Elsenhower and Gen. Omar Bradley, though greatly respecting each other, nonetheless arc a wee bit miffed at each other. One Irritant was Omar's penetrating book, probably the frankest book of the war, which Ike didn't especially care for. More recently Ike has been irked over Bradley's thumbs-down on Gen. Al Oruenthcr to step Into Ike's shoes . . . Bradley says Gruenthcr hasn't had field duty and no man should take over the vital West European command without It. Instead he wants to put Gruenthcr ia command of Army ground forces replacing Gen. Mark Clark, send Clark to replace Ridgway in Korea, send Rldgwoy to replace Ike In i Paris. Later, Dradlcy thinks, Grucnther would make a good chief of staff . . . Meanwhile Secretary Lovett was greatly impressed with Grucnthcr's testimony before the Senate, while Dutch Foreign Minister Dirk Stlkker has put In a strong plug for Gruenthcr, called him a brilliant diplomat and soldier. Stlkker even told Lo'vctt that he had the word of tcmncramental Field Marshal Montgomery that Montv'would serve under Gruen- · ther In Europe without /jrlping. * * * The Veep's women--Vice President Berkley's womenfolks don't agree about his running for president. Mrs. Harkloy Is for it. : So Is Mrs. Max Trultt. the daughter who formerly served as his official hostess. However. Mrs. Douglas McArthur, another daughter. Is opposed, feels the strain would wear out her 74-year-old father . . . Mrs. McArthur Is married to a . State Department official, the nephew and namesake of the irenenil. Ed Sullivan comes first--Marian Anderson, famed Neoro soorano, got her biggest tribute when the late Harold Ickcs Invited her to sing on the stcns of the Lincoln Memorial on Easier Sunday. 1339. She had been barred from Constitution Hall by the DAH, so Ickes gave her the sacred platform in front of the statue of the man who freed her race. This Easter Sundav Miss Anderson was asked to sing before the Lincoln Memorial aealn--at a memorial service for the man who chamoloned her right to sing. She declined. A previous commitment to appear on Ed Sullivan's TV flhow was the excuse . . . Secretary of the Interior Oscar Chapman bogged, ca- loled. offered to fly her In a special nlane from Washington at 3 p. m. to New York in time for the TV show (It U p . m. She defined. Tirhearsnls were the excuse . . . Ed Sullivan, it was explained, wouldn't release her . . . A possible factor could have been a $2 000 fee. Finally Secretary rhanman switched the date to the Sunday after Easter, and Marian Anderson has now consented to sing in memory of Harold Ickcs--one week late. Kefauv'er's gallon--Truman's strategy for stop-' ping Kcfauver Is breaking down. The strategy was to put favorite sons in each state primary, then throw their votes to a candidate chosen hy the president and the party bosses at tho convention. However, thev underestimated Kefauver's vigor, sex apncal nnd general popularity. He has now bagged so many dclctates that he will be hard to stop . . ."Blenest mint about Kefauver which Democratic chieftains seem to miss Is that the nconlo want a "ermine cleanup of corruption, and they know Kefauver started nltch- Ing two years before anyone else .. . The Merry- Go-Wound nost-card poll now shows him running over 60 per cent among Democrat hopefuls. Elsenhower ran 49 per cent . . .

Morris' father-in-law--Two men who didn't Hct to be Supreme .Court justices were directly and indirectly involved in the McGrnth-Nrw- bold Morris controversy. One was Howard McGrath himself, who, when made attorney general two years ago, confidently expected to get the next Supreme Court vacancy . . . The other was Judge Learned Hand, recently retired from the U.S. Court of Appeals and one of the great Judges of recent decades. Not involved In the dispute, Hand Is Morris' father-in-law, gave advice and moral backing . . . Hand is a Republican, so couldn't make the court under Democratic presidents. McGrath didn't make the court cither, first because Justice Stanley Reed, expected to retire for health, recovered; second, because McGrath did so much marking time waiting for the court job that his Justice Department fell to pieces . . . On the credit side of McGrath's career Is a fine record in anti-trust suits and civil liberties. He never flinched at big business cases, nor hesitated to throw Justice Department weight behind religious and racial minorities. Dirty linen for royalty--The queen of Holland really got a choice eyeful of American d i r t y linen. First, the president had a row with one of his cabinet officers while awaiting her at the airport. Later at the state dinner given in her honor, the same cabinet officer told guests how he was being persecuted. Fortunately, MrGralh didn't talk to many people at the dinner, but (n a few he vehemently protested: "The White House clique is ganging up on me. They're try- Ing to dump all the corruption from other departments into the Justice Department. Chnrlie Murphy even had he gall to want me to resign." they'll Do It Every Time «·--«· By Jimmy Hatlo SITTERS.'

Fld J Jt A Column of Comment ·y ROBERTA FULBRIGHT Greenland The "Hi Neighbor" meeting at Greenland Tuesday ntght was a pleasure. It was a large gathering and one attuned to civic progress in all phases. They have a fine, new gymnasium with cafeteria combined, given, I understand, by one of their patriotic citizens, Dr. Wilson. It provides ample facflities for the neighborhood meetings, for games and contests of all sorts', and is a very real asset. The meal itself was excellent, and much enjoyed, and the whole gathering just like we would enjoy'having many more. . . . Howard has been under such a strain that friends were fearful he might suffer a nervous collapse. His edgy nerves were considered the reason for his indiscreet remarks before the House Judiciary Committee. During the last general election in England, « parliamentary candidate in the Midlands concluded an intemperate harangue with, "And, ladies and gunts. if one dishonest word has passed my lips on tills rostrum, may a thunderbolt from the skies fall on my head." At this precise moment, the temporary platform, on which lie stood collapsed, and the orator disappeared from view. Tho audience sat spellbound. A few moments later the disheveled candidate crawled out of the wreckage, tils head bloody but unbowed. A voice from the front low exclaimed, "Damnation! It missed him!" * * * Mrs. Thomas Dolan, prominent socialite in northern New Jersey, put a juicy roast beef in her oven some Sundays back. An hour later she detected a peculiar odor in the kitchen, rushed to the range, and discovered that she had roasted not only the beef but eight hundred dollars in bills her husband had stored in the oven. * * * A young co-cd looked dreamily at the ceiling and declared, "The man 1 marry must be an outstanding personality, be musical, tell new jokes, sing and dance, stay home, neither drink nor smoke, and shut up when I tell him to." Her caller arose, looked fur his hat, nnd told her, "I.ady, you dpn't want a husband; you want a television set." "* + * Bandleader Sammy Kayo takes his life in his hands by claiming .without equivocation that "Dixie" originally was a Yankee tune! Jt was written, he insists, by Daniel Emmett for a Northern minstrel troupe headed by a man named Bryant, and wasn't even sung south of the Mason-Dlxon line until burghers of Boston and Philadelphia had heard it for more than a year. Then somebody in New Orleans recognized Its value as a rousing rally song and later it was made the official song of the Confederacy. Can any readers of "Try and Stop Me" verify, amplify--or possibly refute--this recitation? A Questions And Answers Q--Is the standard railroad gauge used In Russia? A--No. Q--When did the popularity of the American clipper ship end? ''---The great days of the American clipper ship ended with the Civil War. Q--Who is credited with having invented th« watch? A--Peter Henlein, or Henlc, a locksmith who lived in Nurnberg, Germany, is thought to have invented the first watch about 1500 A. D. Q--How are the characters classified in a Chinese dictionary? A--Under radicals, or meaning indicators. To use the Chinese dictionary, one must know the 214 radicals and their order of appearance. Q--Why are mahogany trees cut by moonlight? A--In Honduras, it is much cooler to work at that time. Q--Were the foreign relations of the Confederate States of America ever completely established? A--The Confederacy was recognized as a belligerent, but not BS a nation, by the governments of England, France, Spain, and other countries. Q--How old -is a camel before it is full- grown? Q--What is the largest public library in the United States? A--The New York City Public Library Is the largest. It has nearly 60 branches. Q--How much did the Welcome Nugget weigh? A--This famous gold nugget which was found in Australia, weighed 248 pounds. Dr. and Mrs. Harrison Hale A note from Mabel Hale on my desk ran.e several bells. We got to thinking of when the Hales came here, we were so glad to welcome them. The town was not so large, the University much smaller, and it was easier for all of us to find our niches and feel a bit m o r e important or less strange,'if I may say. But we miss them now like' everything. My string now. is much less than theirs. So long as there are two _staunch ones, I feel they are impregnable, and the Hales have made a strong link with their own lives and our civic cham. We bid them God speed wherever and whatever they do, but cherish a secret wish they will turn up in our hills again. This is a fine locality to grow old in, | and I can testify Jt comes on j apace. P. S. Before I got this to the paper the Hales turned up and called me. A meeting, vacation and so on was responsible. Hcdsc-South 71 The looks of our highway through town has suffered several attacks, what' with cutting the wonderful old trees on the north section, and now changing the route the southern segment (though we expect to like that.) And then industrializ- ing'the southern segment we have some unsightly ureas down on 71, among which the junk yard of automobile refuse takes a high place. We would like to suggest and beg that a good hedge be planted there. It would not cost much and would very soon provide a screen. There fs, a section, just south in front ,of a building. There are two areas and two sections of greens would be wonderful. Gulch-North The big gulch north on 71 --the red forbidding soil could also be beautified very easily by planting green--ivy or clematis would soon take the sides and provide a place of beauty mstead of an unsightly gulch. . We as citizens should attempt to overcome what we lost in loss of the beauty of College Avenue. XXXVI gALLY CltAVATH, a touch lovi Her than the morning itse stood on guard beside the ca Cravath had the car door ope j a n d was messing with dashboar .mechanisms. He backed out an ' Immediately looked sheepishly a me. He tossed something, jinglin .and glittering. The chain and clas that held the car keys. ' "You're not going just yet," Cra ·rath said. I put the keys in my pocket : thought you were sore," : He shook his head. "I rcaliz ;you couldn't have done nnythin else. I wouldn't have scheme against Jack--I'd have tried t ·face him down, but he'd have ad milted nothing," Saity spoke, "Uncle Marne., Touted me out «t some ungodl ; hour and told me.the whole thins lUnclc Jack, of all people." I said, "He was an ambition ^an who had the misfortune to be .In close association most of hla life with a better man. His ego couldn't stand being second-bra any longer. A few days ago, Sally .you said something about 'Dmnon for Cravath' nt Yale. Seldom, I Imagine, 'Crnvatb for Dumont. Dumont was a substitute --in sports, in business . . ." I slopped. Had one of these two married Eve Wheeler years ago, things might have been completely different. They hnd not, however. And, apparently they had chosen a very Me date to fall simultaneously in love with her. Cravath sensed the reason for my halt and Interrupted. "Jim claimed Sladcn was desperate enough to make the attempt :even If he saw Jack along, and I stalled Jack when ho asked me to .explain my theory about Ames's .death." . Hastily I went on, "We could nave (one after the ball that killed jAme«, but grappling hooks and divers would have warned Du- mont--and proved nothing. \l had to trick him." pRAVATH explained to Sail . "According to Jim, Dave wou take a shot a me while 1 wa going througli the motions ,, measuring. I didn't know wha he was going to shoot with. Ort kept me in the dark about th bowling bail business." "How would Sladcn know tha you'd be out there?" she inquires promptly. "Orth was to get In conversa tlon with Dave and tell him abou Mrs. Ring's part In this. Then, a I understood It, he would let sll that he heard me questioning Rln again and saying that I intendei o go out there last night and try lo prove some theory of my own about Ames' death. Actually, b old Dave the truth." "But what did you ten Uncle Jack?" "Only that I was going to take ome measurements to work ou his theory of mine, and aik« »lm to help me. I never dreamet ut what Jack was Just going to je along as an extra witness n case Sladcn got tough." She shook her head. "I wonder ou fell for that about Sladen Jncle Marnoy. If Dave bad been he murderer and you took Uncle ack with you, Dave would have cen Uncle Jack and shied off." Cravnth shrugged. "I raised that olnt. Out Orth insisted that Sla- cn was desperate enough to make he attempt I was to shout to nek to take the tape all the way p to ttufttnrt of the path. That ould have given Sladen his nance." 'I'd have thought that Uncle ack would have wanted to know hat your theory was." "He did." Cravath said. "But I it him off. Said It was too vague talk about, on Orlh'a Instrue- ons." Ills eyes darkened. "H« ai )ust anxious lo get rid of me nd knowing that 1 proposed to go ut on the edge ol UM cllfl was the,important thing to him. "Look," I said, "It was a prett clumsy scheme. But I couJdn think of anything better." Cravath's big jaw eame forwan mddenly. "It was good enough Orth." He said it composedly. But th last uf the scales must have hurt falling from his eyes. Enough, though! I thought ,,,, too. So I didn't mention certain ather of Harrison's findings. For instance, Dumont's associatioi with some expensive friends In New York. The type you don' go after unless you're prepared to put a lot of dough on the line. No sense dragging that out. But t explained why Dumont could have used 50 grand. Not that I blamed him.

In something woolen, and attractive, and suitable for utumn. She gave us a wave and started for a walk, with that graceful, indolent, free-swinging -lovement she had. Right there Marston Cravath 'Ol subtle, like a bulldozer. "Excuse me," he said, and went. I looked at Sally, the only girl *o could ever matter to me. She dldnt return the look. Her gorgeous eyes followed her uncle. "Exit," the said, "what used to s the tops bachelor on Long ·land." With that, she fluttered Im fingers after him, "Well, so ong. darling."

"I'll share them with you. lut'a II you're planning to be iround anywhere." ?!?'· Cim you ·"!·«·"« how thli / Dear Miss Dix: For three years I have been desperately in love with a married man who has two children. He is twenty years older than I. The feeling is not one- sided, nor is it a schoolgirl fancy. I've passed my thirtieth birthday and am too mature for that. Running around with someone else's husband is no joke. I do not approve and therefore I've hesitated to he seen with him although I'm not'happy with anyone else. I do not believe in divorce, neither does he, and we don't want to hurt his wife. She is a fine woman snd deserves something better than to be tossed aside. I've gone out of my way to procure work elsewhere, but have had to come back here to finish the job. Serious talks to each other help for a few minutes, but a handclasp or kiss puts a stop to it all and love wins again. I want him for my husband, he wants me for his wife. Why can't I have him without hurting his wife? The only answer for me seems to be to marry a chap who hns proposed to me. I've told him of the situation but he wants to marry me anyway. He claims that understanding will help us to overcome the problem. I certainly don't love him, as my heart belongs entirely to the man I can't have, but I do admire him. Do you think it would work? M. E. Answer: Your letter, which I have somewhat curtailed, gives a very,fair and honest picture o£ .vou arc! Frankly, I believe I will not discuss," as"' Reaching | It,'" P robab ' y ch °f e number three, is rather out of my orbit, the U - ,T ""I ° «st -resistance. ""1 nation I, n n n t h a t ,,,,, ,.,,,,,,,, ;_ lhe , P ath t h a t wl » bring VOU to certain disaster. from a vantage point completely enveloped in rose-colored clouds, the disaster is very well hidden. You probably regard "the- wife" as the party of the triangle rnost deserving of pity; actually, it is you! She has the security of her position and while her husband may not love her, he certainly holds her in great respect and admiration, judging from what you iy. She has her children! She can afford to wait until the affair blows over. The man has nothing to lose either way. He enjoys the ardor of your love, then goes home to the .affectionate atmosphere of his own home. You alone are the loser; with no security in the future at all. Your doubts are lulled by, as you say, a handclasp or a kiss. Doesn't that seem an inadequate return for the payment of your whole heart and soul? You will emerge from the love affair with a broken heart, possibly a damaged reputation, a cynicism that will darken your whqle future--while husband and wife resume the normal course of their lives as if nothing had happened. Is that fair to you? No! But it is the almost'" 'ncvitable procedure. There are three solutions to the problem. Either you break with your sweetheart, which I am sure voa consider impossible at the noment; you frankly tell his wife of the situation and see if she will agree to a divorce, and ;~our subsequent marriage; or--continue as uation is one that can result in nothing but tragedy for you.
