other safety agencies.
C. A. Howard, state superin
tendent - of schools, said that
while he appreciated that traf

clude all other hazards to which
the school children are subjected.",:-
'We should teach the children

declared that each of these
sehopl buildings was a potential
hazard both to the school children-
and the motorist. Hoss
said ' these school structures
should be erected at some dis
tance from the traffic in ivent
the best results were to be ob
tained. Conway declared that In case
the safety program was launched
aad carried to-a conclusion, the
state motor association would
tarnish a large number of Pos
ters, literature and speakers.
