Salem Teacher Judges
The Judges appointed by Super
intendent J. A. Churchill for this
state were Miss Elizabeth Mc
Cleay. Miss Marie Churchill and
Miss Ada Ross, all teachers in the
galena high school.
Miss Paulsen's essay is illus
trated, which explains the occa
sional reference to pictures. The
essay, entitled "How to Make the
Highways Safe," follows:
HOW TO MAKE THK HIGH
"The importance of this subject
is brought very forcibly to our
minds every time we pick up a
newspaper. There we read of the
great many people both grown ups
and children, that have been kill
ed, maimed or injured on our
highways and the question arises,
What can I do to make the high
ways more safe?
"In our youth wo form all
habits which lead to success or
failure, happiness or sorrow. So
while we are at the age when we
are easily influenced let us form
one habit that will overcome
many causes of trouble and this
is The Habit ot Carefulness.
'Look before you leap' Is an
adage that means a great deal.

look and listen,' and then cross

Impress firmly upon our minds.
Often we cut short distances by
crossing railroad tracks and pub
lic highways which we should not
do as It is very dangerous. It is
not always the children who do
deaths caused by this way -of play
ing, and if we knew how danger
ous It Is we probably would not do
It. Three-fourth of all the acci
dents can be avoided.
"Ill Helping other children.
"Practice safety yourself and
others will follow. The reason
why there are so many accidents
with small children is that we Ol
der children are often careless an J
take chances and the small oaes
imitate us. We should always
caution other child ren about the
dangers and we mu. try to be
careful ourselves. Some danger

"This, picture illustrates an ac
cident that happened in Hermis
ton two years ago which nearly
cost a life. Two boys were riding
in an automobile and were trying
to beat a train across the track.
The train struck the front of the
car and threw it about 50 feet.
One boy escaped with minor In
juries while the other one was se
verely injured and has not fully
recovered at the present time.
"IV. Safety First.
There are too many people
that do not heed this sign. These
signs are put up for our benefit,
and why do we not pay attention
to them? We as children do not
always realize the dangers sur
rounding us. If we would only re
member this, 'Forethought is
cheap. Afterthought is expensive.'
we probably would stop, look and
listen, before we cross tracks,
