Hal Hoss Claims
8peed alone la not a contribut
ing factor to antomobile acci
dents, nor has a surrey ever
been made In which the young
ster can be blamed for a major
Jorlty of the accidents on the
road. Hal Hoss, secretary of
elate, told the Salem Lions club
yesterday noon. Preoccupation
of the driver causes most of the
accidents, and therefore the
driver should learn to confine
his attention to driving when
behind the wheel, Hoss said.
Results of a national survey
upset all preconceived notions of
the driver who causes accidents,
for a composite picture shows
this man to be 55 years old, in
good physical condition with
both ears and eyes all right and
with enough arms and legs to
manage the situation. Further
more, three-fourths of the motor
accidents occur on dry streets,
three-fourths in daylight and In
clear weather, and three-fourths
on state roads, the survey shows.
Most Occur I'mh-r
An Oregon survey shows that
65 per cent of the accidents oc
curring In this state in the year
of the survey were due to theft
of the other fellows' right-of-way.
38 per cent being because
one driver was on the wrong
side of the road and 27 per cent
due to cutting in. Out of 6.000
accidents, 2,8 51 were due to de
fective brakes and 2,026 due to
In the face of a national in
crease of accidents of 54 per
cent In 1929, drivers under the
age of 14 years show a decrease
of 12 per cent In accidents
charged to them.
Joe Shelton, general manager
of the Oregon state motor asso
ciation, spoke before the club
also, telling of the safety lane
campaign put on recently in
Portland, and bringing assurance
that the next city in which the
campaign would be staged will
be Salem, whether In the imme
diate future or next year.
Shelton told of the enlighten
ing results of the Portland cam
paign, and said also it was an
excellent check-up on the work
done by mechanics and also on
th condition in which new cars
sometimes are allowed to leave
Many In Portland
He recounted figures obtained
from the five-day test of car3 in
Portland, in which 4,361- ma
chines went through the lane. Of
this number, hut 1400 were giv
en O. K. tickets. Defective
ltenis were found as follows:
brake stopping, 69; brakes
equalized, 1580; headlights.
1482; horn. 64; windshield
swipe, 99; rear view mirror, 33;
steering mechanism, 282; wheel
alignment, 1.190; tires, 33. Six
hundred and sixty-six cars re
turned to pass the test after ad
justments had been made.
The Lions club voted to co
operate with the motor associa
tion !n staging auch a campaign
A "return to prosperity" cam
paign which Lions International
is sponsoring in the United
States and Canada this week will

Rehearing Necessary due to
Judge Dietrich Death;
The briefs which W. P. Ellis
and W. C. MeCullough are prepar
ing on behalf of the Oregon pub
lic service commission and the
public utilities eommislon of Ida
ho, In answer to the Union Pac
ific's refusal to build a cross-state
railroad linking Crescent and
Crane, will be filed within the next
ten days, according to Mr. Ellis.
A rehearing is necessary on ac
count of the death of Federal
Judge Dietrich of Idaho who was
a member of the original court,
along with Federal Judges ic
Nary and Bean, which heard the
case. Judge Durkin of the Califor
nia circuit court of appeals has
been chosen to take the late
Judge's place on the court. The
case will come before this court
to be re-argued December 9, 5a
The Union Pacific's argument
in objecting to building the above
road has been that the Intersrate
commerce commission acted un
constitutionally In ordering it to
connect Crescent and Crane by
The Crescent to Crane route
would greatly shorten the distance
between central, eastern and
southern Oregon and the east. The
road would connect with the main
line of the Union Pacific at Og
den, Utah. Freight rates would
be greatly reduced and several
hours would be taken off the pres
ent train traffic to the east.
The cost of the roads has been
estimated between eight and ten
million dollars. The Union Pacific
would use the Southern Pacific
tracks to Crescent, thence branch
off to Crane.

Well. well. It was really a big

a real pleasure and both were
"Maybe It's Love" at Bllgh's
Capitol Is nothing short of a cho
colate parfait on a hot day It Is
light, refreshing, and completely
enpoyable. Joe Brown and his
mouth are real things to wonder
abojat. Is his mouth as big as
It looks? What makes his tongue
curl in such peculiar fashion? Is
he homely or has he gotten past
that stage and rounded the corner
to be a claim of distinction In
looks at least? Is he clever, fun
ny or both? Or is he Just a plain
sap that happens to be amusing
to watch? You decide, it, Dere
Publix; I am unable.
Whatever th conclusion the
play Is amusing and Interesting.
There is some very genuine foot
ball shown and there is some
very unexpected sequences all the
way through the picture which
is one of college life and the de
velopment of a college football
team and a love affair. Joan
Bennett Is the "girl" and she does
very good work. James Hall is
another, who does interesting
work. But for that matter most
of the cast is interesting to watch.
From the Bligh I went to the
Elsinor and what a thrill I got
there I Came out of the show
with a feeling that I had been
witnessing something very real.
The play Is "In the Eyes of the
World," and the leads are taken
by Una Merkeland. John Holland
supposedly but the cast is so well
balanced that It is difficult to
place anyone In the lead that Is
except Una Market. That young
lady runs away with the show.
D. W. Griffith picked her for a
winner and if she continues to
grow as she appears to be In "In
the Eyes of the World" she cer
tainly has a career ahead. Her
work Is realistic, refined, full of
fire and sympathy that almost
takes one's breath at times.
Frederick Burt, John Holland
and Myra Hubert do unusually in
teresting work, too. The play Is
one of triangles, one within an
other and the result Is as much
tension and emotions as I have
found packed Into one nlay for a
