Ten . Simple Rules. Recom
; mended by Studebak-
' er Head :
The conscientious observance of
ten simple rales for' safe driving
prepared by one ot the nation's
foremost traffic authorities would
materially, reduce- the number of
traffic and highway accidents in
the United States,, and at the
same time result lif a decidedly
more efficient use of our motor
cars, according to A. R. Erskine,
president ot The Studebaker cor
poration. "The many complications and
new safety requirements imposed
by modern traffic conditions are
ably covered in these ten com
mandments for motorists," said
Mr. Erskine. "They were com
piled at the request of safety
workers by Dr. Miller MeClintock,
director of the Erskine Burean
for Street Traffic Research which
The Studebaker corporation en
dows In Harvard university as its
contribution to the solution of
modern traffic and safety prob
lems. ."The rules are based on traffic
studies made by the bureau in
city and suburban areas with an
estimated total population in ex
cess ot 10,000,000 people. The
ten pointers which it is believed
motorists should always bear ln
mind whether driving in th city
or ln the open country re:
1. Keep your car sound con
dition. 2. Keep jout car under con
trol; It ta dangerous If you can
not stop In the assured clear dis
tance ahead. ; .
3. Keep your eye on the road:
one second's inattention may
mean an accident.
4. Never fight for the right of
way: the only real utility of right
of way rules Is at inquests or
5. Go along with the proces
sion r you have no more right to
"drag" traffio than you have to
Jeopardize yourself and others by
unnecessary "cutting in."
9. Be as courteous on the road
as. you are in your own home:
give other drivers and especially
pedestrians a fair chance.
7. Know your local traffic rules
and obey them exactly: they are
the motorist's safety code and
book of etiquette combined.
8. Take pride in your driving
skill: if normal people- are nerv
ous to ride with you, something is
wrong with your driving.
9. Don't miss liquor, worry,, or
anger with gasoline.
10. Study local maps and ex
periment for shorter and less con
gested routes; you may be sur
prised at the time you will save.

ROME (AP) Despite all
Mussolini's -efforts, his personal
example, his campaign of high
powered publicity and his money
rewards, Italy Iras swung into the
trend of other European countries
so that her births and deaths tee
ter on an even balance.
The deaths, ln many cases,
weigh down the scales. The press
Is crying "Is the Italian race dy
ing?" In the first 11 months of 1929,
the births totaled 29.4 60 fewer
than in the same period of 1928.
At the same time the deaths
jumped almost 30,000, making
the "demographical balance" yet
At the door of the cities Is laid
the blame for this set-back. "The
city," says the Popolo di Roma,
"renders men sterile and it is
stricken by the folly of 6uicide."
Florence, which harbors a
large American colony, had 4,
053 births in the 11 months per
iod, and 4,647 deaths.
Novarra's birhtrate is 13 to
the thousand. Its deathrate is 16.
Trieste's births were 246 and its
deaths 245 in a total of 245,000
The cities of Padua, Parma and
Modena are on the right side of
the balance, but so close Id the
center that they exist in momen
tary danger of going over to the
other side. The cities to the south
show better records but do not
offset the unfavorable sum total.
The publication of these fig
urea has flashed through Italy
like lightning. In the last several
years, Italy, lulled' by reports of
triplets and quadruplets and by
isolated birth and death figures.
has come to believe that her pop- b
ulatlon was growing apace. Now
she has awakened, and the Dnce
is thundering once again:
,'We need more children."
Mussolini has been strenuous
in his efforts to increase the man
power of his country. He gives
rewards personally to the parents
of large families; he gives them
preference ln governmental posi
tions; he forbids the sale of any
birth control a'evlces or litera
ture; he sets the example by
having five children of his own,
the youngest of whom was born
There is a certain political sig
nificance to this decrease ln
births. The Popolo di Roma
"Other nations will rejoice not
only because misery loves com
pany but also because the Italian
threat, rising above the horlxon,
will slowly fritter away. A na
tion ln which deaths finish by
surpassing the births has no need
of colonics in other lands. But
for its cemeteries it will never
hare enough ground."

Granger, ot the Pacific northwest
district, had been promoted to the
