Opponents Have Slight I ¿cad in First Ballots ( minted
Of 3000 or 3500 Postal Cards Sent Out
Only About 1000 Replied
Post-card replies upon the proposed sewer and Foster

No punishment could be too severe for an automobilist who kills
■ person and than deliberately drive« away in the hope of «»raping. The
laws of Texas make tins a felony, but there should be a punuhinvut to fit
the crime. What is needed is a draatie law, fixing a punishment as severe
as can lie fixed under the Constitution, for speeders who crash into a
pedestrian or another car, kill one or piore person» and then speed away.
The law should be ao severe that the first person caught after it went
into effect would form an example that would deter motorists in the fu­
ture from taking any chances and, when they de have an accident, from
ahirking responsibility by running away.
Traffic accident» are largely due to pedestriana. But the accident

humanity by passing law« against thia practice as drastic as they <xn be
