Weaver, who has in terested himself in all types of safety measures for farm folks, from what to do with bad balls and dangerous farm machinery to rickety stairs that need repairs. Prof. Weaver reports the safety suggestions that have .been given so many times before for those who walk along country roads, especially just-after sunset. These suggestions are: (1) Walk on the extreme left aids of the road, facing the oncoming traffic. (2) Walk on the she^der, off the road, if there is enough room/ (8) Be alert for cars coming in either direction. (4) Look careful 1 for approaching traffic, in both directions, before starting to ernes the highway. (6) Don't walk out from behind a ear or truck into the roadway- (6) When walking at night, something white or carry a light.
