For a Sane Fourth
ALL AMERICA will likely be on
wheels over the forthcoming
week end and that fact calls for
a measure of reflection.
Hazards of highway travel are
ever present and on special holi
day occasions, such as the Fourth
of July, these hazards are multi
plied in proportion to the increase
in traffic. In many instances long
trips are planned and the tendency
is to lengthen the stay at the other
end of the journey by cutting the
time on the road. This is accom
plished at the risk of serious acci
dent, through cutting curves and
driving at high speed. Also, many
people make the drive at night,
thus adding to the hazard.
A word of caution is unneces
sary to the habitually careful driver,
but volumes have been written and
many more volumes will be written
about careless driving without get
ting under the hide of the reckless
driver. There seems to be but one
argument to reach the reckless mo
torist and he usually produces the
argument himself in the form of
an accident. All too frequently the
accident writes finis to the driver's
career as well as carrying innocent
victims to destruction.
Aa a word of warning we would
say "Drive carefully this week
end!" Your smile is much more
pleasant to gaze upon than your
Highway accidents are not the
only aftermath of the annual ob
servance of Independence day. Pow
der and water claim their share of
human life. Be slow about handling
fireworks if you are not familiar
with them. This goes for adults as
well as children. Some of those in
genious noise and pyrotechnic de
vices are potential blasters if not
handled properly and frequently
leave their victims marked for life.
If you must don a bathing suit on
the Fourth and can't swim, content
yourself with dabbling in the water
and don't get in beyond your depth.
If it is running water always stay
near the bank or at least within
reach of help from the bank.
This may sound prudish, but the
list of accidents, many of them fatal,
recurs from year to year with
alarming regularity. Have a good
time on the Fourth, by all, means,
but be sane about it. If you would
save your head, use it.
Passing of Erward E. Brodie, Ore
gon City publisher, closes an active
career. His worth as a newspaper
man was recognized by his fellow
publishers, not only in Oregon where
he served as president of the state
press association, but in the national
field where he served as president
of the National Editorial association.
His field of service extended beyond
the publishing business, represent
ing his government as minister to
Sam and as ambassador to Finland.
His was a useful career and his death
marks the passing of one of Oregon's
first citizens. '

Two-ton Tony made good his
threat to knock Louis down, even if
not out. Louis, like Jack Dempsey
in the Firpo fight, had to be knocked
into action, as it were, before he
showed the fighting stuff he is made
of. Tony demands another go with
the colored boy, which shows he is
none too smart.
