More About Accidents
We are indebted to accident insurance
CMnpanies for the greater part of our in-
ikarmation about automobile accidents and
pass altmg to the reader some of the
Sgnificant facts gleaned.
- To better realize the importance of the
problem of automobile accidents let us all
bear in mind that 36,000 persons were kill
ed last year by automobiles. Now if we
can classify the fatalities according to
causes we have a better understanding of
In 1934 nearly half of the persons killed
by automobiles were pedestrians. Of the
pedestrians killed 34 per cent were persons
crossing streets in the middle of a block,
11 per cent children playing in streets, 17
per cent walking along roads, nine per
cent coming from behind cars, and 29 per
The first cause mentioned, crossing in
the middle of blocks, has reference to con
ditions in cities where traffic signals are
in use. Children killed playing in streets
ean be charged up to careless paints
wftu do not keep their children out of the
danger zone and to motorists who do not
exercise the proi>er care. Persons who are
killed while walking along the road usu
ally die because of their persistence in
widking on pavement, although two cars
may be meeting at that time. Walking
from behind a car into the path of anoth-
w is unadulterated carelessness, and the
miscellaneous pedestrian accidents can be
attributed to varied causes.
More than 10,000 persons were injured
last year because many nit-wit drivers in
sisted on passing cars on curves and as
they approached the tops of hills.
Although we have often heard the 'ex
pression that motorists make better time
at night, the accident figures show too
many fatalities to make one think that
night driving is safer than in the day
time. The rate of deaths per accident
.was 22 per cent greater at night than in
daytime in 1934.
The following poem is not an exaggera
Back in the days when there was less baste.
A checkered suit, a diamond of paste,
A gay cravat and a limber cane.
Such were the marks of male who was vain.
But now he “struts” in a car with flash,
, He’s always out for a crazy dash.
His brakes may be worn and out of line
But both of his horns arc always fine.
He drives like a demon, even though
He hasn’t a single place to go.
He cuts around when chances are slim—
, Danger to others means naught to him.
' He thinks that a “Stop” sign just means
And jumps the lights bifore they sa, “Go.”
He shows no quarter to those who walk
And thinks that their rights are so much talk.
And EJddie Cantor, of radio and movie
fame, suggests the following inscription
m every driver’s license:
Here lies the body of William Jay,
Who died maintaining his right of way.
He was right as he sped along.
But he’s just as dead
As if he’d been wrong.

creaaing ratio of automobile killings, the

this Government to buy enough silver

quarter silver and three-quarters gold,

we have more than eight billions in

THE BIBLE CALLS HER GREAT
Ask a dozen Bible students, “Who is the one
woman whom the Bible calls great?” and even
they would likely give a wide variety of answers.
Was it Pharaoh’s daughter, whose wit and
courage saved the life of Moses? Was it the
mighty Queen of Sheba, ruler of an empire?
Was it the mother of Solomon, who made him
king, or the mother of John the Baptist, who
consecrated him to his splendid mission? None
of these; none of the women of royal birth;
none whose close relation to kings or apostles
made their names famous for deeds of public re
nown.’ Quite a different sort of woman alto
gether. Let us look a moment at the picture of
her which is given in the fourth chapter of
First of all. she was domestic, a home-maker,
living not in the city but in one of the northern
villages. Her husband was a farmer, which
meant that he had his house on the edge of
town, as was the custom then. A main road
ran near by, and important people used it. Solo-
moJi, too, appears to have traveled there in his
The “great woman” had executive ability. In
the early days of her married life she" had no
children, and that fact shadowed her life. But
she did not complain. The narrative distinctly
implies that she accepted the situation and made
the best of it, giving hetself to such activities as
lightened the load of her husband. She was re
ligious, and she was hospitable. To these last
two characteristics she owed the friendship
that brought her the happiness which she desired
above all else, and won for her the place of
honor in the Bible records.
And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed
to Shunem, where was a great woman; and
she constrained him to eat bread. And so it
was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned
in thither to eat bread.
And she said unto her husband. Behold
now, I perceive that this is an holy man of
God, which passeth by vs continually.
Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee,
on the wall; and let us set for him there a
bed, and a table,-«nd a stool, and a candle
stick; and it shall be, when he cometh to us,
that he shall turn in thither.
As to what happened afterward, the fulfill
ment of her long desire for a son, the growth
of the boy, his illness, and his miraculous re
covery at the hand of the prophet Elisha—all
these are written in the next thirty verses of
She was just a small-town woman who loved
her husband and wanted motherhood more than
anything else in the world, and baked good
bread and keut a clean guest room. The Bible
does not tell us her name, but of all the women
whose biographies it records it speaks of her
alone is “great.”
