Mayor Asks Everyone
To Aid Safety Record
Mayor J. O. Turner today called
upon citizens of this city to cooper
ate in the campaign to keep Oregon
at the top of the list in traffic safety
by driving and walking carefully
during the remainder of the year.
In a statement calling attention to
the recent announcement that Ore
gon had won first place in the Na
tional Safety council's 1940 traffic
safety contest in the western div
ision, Mayor Turner stressed the fact
that ths state already had made a
good start toward a favorable record
for 1941 by leading the nation in
traffic fatality reduction during the
first two months of the year.
"In this modern era of automobile
travel, the reputation of being a
safe area in which to drive is of
inestimable value in attracting tour
ists to our state," the mayor declar
ed in his statement. "In addition
to the high distinction conferred
upon the state by winning the con
test, there is a tangible value involv
ed in being recognized as the safest
state in the west. It is to our inter
ests to maintain tlus reputation as
long as possible.
"Traffic accidents can be prevent
ed. Figures compiled in the office
of Earl Snell, secretary of state, show
that for the first two months of this
year, traffic increased 15.6 percent,
as shown by figures on gasoline
consumption. But during this same
period traffic fatalities decreased 40
percent. Clearly, the mere fact there
is a great volume of traffic on our
highways and streets does not mean
there must be a correspondingly
great volume of traffic fatalities.
"If we, as individual drivers, will
hold down our speed on the high
ways, approach intersections with
greater caution, always remember" to
give proper hand and arm signals
and to observe the rights of others,
we can prevent accidents, as pedes
trians, we can cross streets only at
intersections where we can use
crosswalks, watch for approaching
traffic before leaving the curb, walk
to the left of the highway, facing
traffic, and wear something white
"In this way, we can avoid be
coming involved in traffic accidents
and each one of us can thus do his
part in maintaining the state's repu
tation as a safe place in which to
drive and walk."

(g) While improvements hav
been made in the housing of the

possibility of moving the library
across the hall to occupy the space
now taken up by cloakrooms and
run in connection with the study hall
be considered. 1

ing. Insect Control Guide
Issued by College
The best of vegetable garden seed
planted on excellent land will still
not insure a crop unless the plants
are protected from insects. In answer
to the constant requests for inform
ation on garden insect control, the
entomologists at Oregon State col
lege have just prepared a revised
extension bulletin No. 551, which
gives the latest recommendations for
controlling garden pests.
The bulletin discusses various
types of dusts and sprays, and me
thods of application, and also con
tains a chart showing recommended
control of insects for the different
kinds of garden crops. The bulletin
may be obtained free from any
county extension office.
