About 90 percent of the automobile accidents were caused by human failure during 1951. Excessive speed was the biggest killer. Speed contributed to half of all motor vehicle accidents and to 35 percent of all fatal accidents. Drunken driving, illegal passing,, driving on the wrong side of the road and falling to give the right of way spread added doqth and destruction across the nation.

In one form or another it's been kicked around American newspapers for a generation, but the current version is printed in a Tulsa (Okla.) ({Tribune editorial. I quote: Horse Nonsense (Tulsa Tribune; We hope loo much reliance is not placed on that Richmond (Va.) talking horse which according to yesterday's Associated Press report said a missing youngster from the East would be found in Kansas. Horses arc notorious liars. A friend proves this by relating .an incident involving a motoring 'iricnd of his whose radiator ran dry in sparsely settled country. A horse watching from a fence corner spoke up to direct the autoisl to a nearby spring. After getting some cool water and starling his engine the motorist was about to roll on when it occurred to him he might make some money, or at least interest his friends, with such a horse. Driving back to tho ranch house he opened negotiations j^'with the owner. They concluded a deal at $300 and then remorse overtook our friend's friend, for he had carefully refrained from mentioning that it was a talking horse he was buying. He broke down and told tho rancher his experience with tho overheated motor and the leaky radiatoi arid the horse's help. Ho didn't want to buy the horse under a false label, he said. f The rancher said he was feeling remorseful, too, and didn't want to sell under any false impressions. "That horse," he said, "is an awful liar. She tells everyone sho won the Kentucky Derby, and probably told you that, too. As a matter of fact she didn't do any such thing. She ran last in a 13-horse field. I think you ought to know that before you pay me." The Richmond horse, whose pic- ^ure we had in the paper yesterday, looks suspiciously like tho old liar from the Panhandle. If it is one and the same we want the police to know about her previous reputation for veracity before they start running down her latest sue gestions. 26 Injured, 9 Seriously, in Train Collision FT. SMITH Iff! — A Kansas City Southern Freight train and a Frisco passenger train which was running late collided near here late yesterday, injuring 26 persons. Only nine of the injured were hurt bad enough to r e q u i re hospitalization, and there were no deaths.

However, Otis Hays, chief dispatcher for the risco lines here, said the pas- •nger train was running 15 minutes behind its schedule. He said was due here at 5:15 p. in.
