Federal and State governments have
earmarked one fourth of the cost
of a record road improvement pro
gram to safety measures.
Of an estimated total expendi
ture of $600,000,000, $125,000,
000 will go toward cutting down
automobile crashes by:
Eliminating railroad crossings.

Laying dustless road surfaces.
Increasing sight distances, to re
move mental as well as physical
hazards of motorists.
Several states planned highway
safety programs along particular
lines. Pennsylvania will paint yel
low lines through the middle of
mountain roads to guide drivers
through heavy fog. Indiana will
divide traffic lanes on the Lincoln
highway from Merrilville to Scher
erville. Oklahoma will survey traf
fic conditions on all main arteries
as groundwork for accident preven

trolled by a new 74-man highway
patrol. West Virginia will reor
ganize and increase its road patrol.
Colorado will require safety in- 1

Biggest contributor to the con

was second, with $10,307,184.

A recent survey of Eastern and

red flannels once were as common
as ham and eggs, revealed a national
scarcity of the articles.

Boys For Work
Arts and Crafts Program
Instills Need of More
Education in Youths
Washington—The youth who en
rolls in the Civilian Conservation
corps may or may not find a ;ob
when he comes out but the odds
are a little better than two to one
that he will know how to entertain
himself in his spare time.
And that, said Howard W. Ox
ley, is something. Oxley put this
down along with self-assurance
and good healthy axe swinging
strength in assessing the benefits of
the corps to the youth. Oxley is
the man who supervises the educa
tional and hobby program in the
They don’t call it a “hobby pro
;ram” around Oxley’s office, how
ver. To Oxley and those working
vith him, it is "arts and crafts.”
Whatever the name, however, it
is the thing that has had better
than 70 per cent of the CCC en
rollers busy through the cold
months carving woods and weaving
modelling clay and daubing with
brush, struggling with needles and
stewing over stoves, making ash
trays and rugs, pottery and pic
tures, doilies and pies.
Vast heaps of assorted articles
have come out of their work, whole
exhibits have been arranged. Some
of the products are saleable, some
are not. Many of them are works
of beauty rather than utility, but
frequently they are a combination
of the two.
/\na out ox tne noDDies, irequ
ently has come, that which was
needed to stimulate a youth into
seeking education. Oxley explain
ed it this way:
"A man comes into camp. IHe
tells the educational advisor he
doesn’t want to study, never did
like school. The advisor asks
about other things, trying to find
something he is interested in.
There doesn’t seem to be any
Later the enrollee sees another
man carving a ship, or a butter
mould, or an ash tray. The work
appeals to him. He wants to learn.
So he goes to a class. A little la
ter he finds that to do some of the
intricate designs, he must learn
arithmetic, must learn to read. And
so he goes to other classes.
"I was in one camp on the Pa
cific coast just before the Christ
mas holidays when the boys were
working in two-hour shifts, day
and night a lathe and wood train
ing shop they had built themselves.
The boys were devoting all their
spare time to making Christmas
presents for their families and
friends. One would work his two
hours at the lathe and then wake
up the next man to take his turn.
"The work done in their spare
time varies according to regions.
In the Northeast, they run largely
to wood and furniture work. Along
the Middle Atlantic and Southern
States, the boys make things for
the home. This holds true largely
for the Middle West. In the South
west, they work with stones and
to a lesser degree pottery. In the
Northwest, they run to wood and
what is the practical value?” j
"Well, to begin with, a CCC en
rollee has a better chance to get
a job when he gets out than he
would have otherwise. We have
had many inquiries for CCC men.
They are vigorous and their bear
ing is not that of a beaten man.
"But suppose he doesn’t get a
job. There are things that he has
learned to do with his hands. He
can mend things about the house.
He can occupy his mind by keep
ing his hands busy. His morale
Officials after a little quick arith

illotted for education had gone in

Lady's Painful Trouble
Helped By Cardui
Why do so many women take Cap
ital for the relief of functional pains
at monthly times? The answer is
that they want results suoh as Mrs.
Herbert W. Hunt, of Hallsville, Texas,
describes. She writes: “My health
wasn’t good. I suffered from cramp
ing. My pain would be so Intense It
would nauseate me. I would Just
drag around, so sluggish and ‘do
less.’ My mother decided to give me
Cardui. I began to mend. That tired,
sluggish feeling was gone and thq
pains disappeared. I can’t praise
Cardui too highly because I know
It helped me.” ... If Cardui does not
help YOU, consult a physician.
