One of the older college stu
dents turned and hosed the
youngsters with a spray of cold
water. They laughed gleefully,
and romped just out of reach.
Two “men” crawled onto the
roof of the porch in front of the
building, armed with a wastebas
ket full of cold water.
About 05 pounds of icy water
struck the two boys full force,

Kit a stone wall,
After too many drinks from the keg;
\ His car took fire- made a funeral pure,
> "x Andpow he’s just a fried egg"!
Funny? No!—Humpty Dumpty’s kind of death is only stupid—and criminal.
Look at the facts: Drinking drivers cause one out of every five highway deaths.
When innocent victims perish, too, that’s manslaughter! It must be dealt with by strict
laws, strictly enforced.
Even one or two drinks slow reactions, impair judgment, increase accident chances
three to four times.
Drinking and driving just don’t mix. If you drive, don’t drink. If you drink, don’t drive.
