Committee Named to Draft
DRUNKEN DRIVER SCORED
Conference of Motor Vehicle Ad

Formation of an executive com
mittee to draft new legislation re

western states and British Columbia
was the principal business trans

session of the conference of motor
vehicle administrative officers and
traffic officers of California, Idaho,
Oregon, Washington, Montana ai)d
British Columbia, at the Multnomah
Sam A. Kozer, secretary of state
of Oregon, was elected chairman of
the committee and other members
are: L. D. McArdle, director of the
department of efficiency of the state
of Washington; Fred J. Dibble, di
rector of licenses of Washington;

Uniform Law Wanted.
The new committee is empowered
to meet at the call of the chairman
or of any two members. Its first
business will be to hold meetings
at which a uniform law governing
interstate- and intra-state traffic
will be submitted to the various
lawmaking bodies of the states
represented and British Columbia.
Oregon paved 103 miles of high
way last year at a cost of $28,100
a mile. The average width of these
highways was 16 feet and the aver
age depth was five inches. Wash
ington paved more than that num
ber of miles at a cost of J28.300 a
mile and the average width of the
roads was 20 feet and average depth
seven inches, according to Douglas
Shelor, manager of the Automobile
Club of Western Washington.
"The speed limit for motor ve
hicles in our state," said Mr. Shelor,
"is 35 miles an hour, while Oregon's
speed limit is but 30.
Wide Itoada Safer.
"Why did we build our highways
wider and deeper than Oregon? And
why did we increase the speed limit?
The answer is service to the motor
vehicle driver. It is just as safe
to drive 35 miles an hour on our
roads as to drive 30 miles on Oregon
roads and our thoroughfares cost
practically the same.
"Oregon has 135,000 automobiles,
Washington has 200,000 and Califor
nia has more than 800,000. Call
fornia's speed limit is 35 miles an
hour and California's laws governing
traffic and highways are admitted
to be the best in the United States.
We copied the California laws. Ore
gon should follow in our footsteps
"Examination of drivers with a
view to eliminating incompetents on
our highways is bound to come in
every state of the union. We are
already contemplating the drafting
of a law providing for this.
Law Enforcement Aided.
''The Automobile Club of West
ern Washington is hacking law en
forcement officers of the state to
the limit. In times past auto clubs
acted on the theory that every mo
torist except their own members
should obey the law. But times have
"If a man gets drunk and drives a
motor car he should be sent to jail.
He has no more right to escape than
any murderer. An intoxicated auto
mobile driver is a potential mur
derer at all times."
Municipal Judge Ekwall of Port
land contributed an impressive pa
per at the conference. He said he
has made it a practice to punish
careless, reckless and intoxicated
. drivers to the full extent of the law
in the sinx months Since he took
Drunken Drivers Scored.
A dozen other speakers, represeat
attves of the various states which
sent delegates to the conference,
picked on incompetent drivers and
lambasted John Barleycorn and
Milady Lotusblossom without any
consideration whatever. It devel
oped during the discussion that nar
cotics users are just as culpable as
those who imbibe too freely of
strong and rebellious liquors.

How do you pick
First, there's the matter of "re
serves" the proportion of capital
and surplus to the risks assumed.
In Oregon, the state law is that the
reserve must be 50 of the first
year's premiums and 66S of the
three-year premium. This ratio,
the Insurance Commission deems
guarantees absolute safety to policy-holders.
Yet, Pacific States has
in addition to this reserve in all
over a million dollars capital and
surplus invested in highest grade
securities. This gives us more
assets in proportion to our liabili
