Opening of Schools Brings A Warning To N.C. Car Drivers The opening of schools throughout the State drew this week from Ron ald Hocutt, director of the Highway Safety Division a reminder that pe destrian fatalities among school-age children have taken an upward trend in North Carolina in the past few years. "As a matter of fact," the safety director stated, the percentage of pedestrian deaths in the school-age group in this State is more than dou ble the percentage of pedestrian fa talities in all age groups." During the 1937-38 school year, he pointed out, a total of 91 school-age children were killed on North Caro lina streets and highways. Of these. 58 were pedestrians, that is, they were walking to and from school, playing in the street or roadway, and running into the street. This was approximately 64 per cent of the total fatalities in that age group. During the 1938-39 school term, 79 school-age children were killed, nris was a 13 per cent reduction from the 91 killed the previous school year. But?67 of the 79 fatalities were pedestrians, this representing 84 per cent of the total number. During the 1939-40 school year. 56 of the 71 school-age children killed in traffic accidents were pedestrians, this being 80 per cent of the total. "This high ratio of pedestrian fa talities among school-age children is most alarming," Safety Director Hocutt said, "especially in view of the fact that only about 35 per cent of all traffic accident victims in the State and nation are pedestrians. "These figures speak for them selves," he added, "in challenging parents of all school-age children to train their children not to play in the street and not to run into the sreet or road or attempt o cross with out first looking both ways to be sure the way is clear." Lists Uncle Sam's Strategic Materials Manganese, rubber and tin are the "Big Three" of Uncle Sam's strate gic materials?so called because they are vital to national defense, but surrounded with difficult procure ment problems. The U. S. faced near disaster in 1918 because of lack of manganese? the ore that puts the "starch" in steel?and until recently nearly all of our manganese has had to be imported from such far-off sources as BussiA. India, Africa and Brazil. The Cuban-American Man ganese corporation is expanding the capacity of its plant near Santiago from 100,000 tons to 130,000 tons an nually, effective next January 1. Langbourne M. Williams, Jr., pres ident of Freeport Sulphur Company, of which the manganese corporation is a subsidiary, said that when de velopment of the low-grade Cuban ores was started, 10 years agy, it was with the knowledge that a large, nearby source of manganese was thus being established as a bolster <T of our national defense set-up. They ha dto contend with a major earthquake, a revolution, and three floods before operations became technically and economically suc cessful, in 1937, so he said it was "fratifying, after such a struggle, that the company is able with its own funds to increase its plant ca pacity, at the request of the Defense Advisory commission, to augment the nation's defense resources." ?
