Think of it! 4atiOnpleasanttOindustrialthe em,ployeeSrelationsfOr tha~tthe That figure represents all most three times as many people as there are in Jefferson County; it represents about as many people as there are in the whole of a modern large city. How to end this carnage on the highway is one of America's biggest problems. It becomes even more com- plicated by the sad fact that virtually all motorists seem to harbor the belief that all traffic rules and regulations were made for "the other fellow" and the equally alarming pschology that "accidents always happen to the other fel- low." There were about 40,000 people in 1958 who thought the same thing. If there are those who still believe in making New Year's esotutions we suggest the adoption of a firm resolve by very person who drives a car: resolve to go a little slower, resolve to be a little more careful. Safety, like virtue, be its own reward. And carelessness can and frequently does exact a terrible justice. Telephone 256-JX HAT ........ 'S GOING ON IN . . . RANSOH By Mrs. Roy Breeden iiiii i iii i.
