The Pilot can but feel that the
Democratic electorate of Moore
county; has acted wisely in the
renaming of the members of the
present Board of County Com-
missiond/s, nominations tanta
mount to election in November.
The financial condidtion of the
county as set forth a week ago
before the Kiwanis Club by
Chairman Currie of the board;
revealed the fact that we have
been in excellent hands during
the recovery period in which the
present board has been admin
istrating: our affairs. Moore
county ranks among the top in
the state in financial health.
And has kept its house in order
without sacrifice of progress.
The board is to be congratulated
on its management, the Demo
cratic electorate on having the

W. Bailey is a compliment to the i
people of the state. Mr. Bailey I
has not been a political strategist |
in office. He has at times alien- j
ated thousands of voters by hisj
action in Congress. He has at all i
times placed duty to country, as
he saw it, above partisan poli
tics, above the “bid for votes”
which guides so many of ouri
legi.slators. He stuck to his post i
at Washington throughout the|
recent campaign, making not a|
single speech in his own behalf. 1
He has worked hard and faith
fully and pursued the dictates of
his conscience with the courage |
of his convictions. Would there

If motorists and pedestrians know
the rules of the road and stick to
them, the number and severity of
accidents will be greatly rec iced,
traffic experts have found.
The more important rules of the
road as suggested by Ford dealers to
the genera] public, are as follows:
Speed—Keep the pace of other
cats when in traffic. On the open road
it should be governed by state law
or road conditions.
Right of W'ay—Don’t contest right |
of way. It oftens ends in the hospit
Wtaving in traffic—Always keep
in one lane of traffic. Before chang
ing lanes always use rear view mir
ror to see w'hat is behind you, then
signal with the arm.
' Left turns—Keep in center lane
when preparing to turn left at an in
tersection, unless local ordinance pro
Right turns—Get in close to the
curb when you wish to make a right
turn. Through traffic can follow the
outer lane, and the middle lane if
there are three.
Leaving curb — Always look
back and see if any car is approach,
ing, then signal your intention be
fore pulling away from the curb.
Stop and go—Always watch for stop
signs. It is as dangerous for you as
for the other driver to run through
a red light.
Road signs—Always read them;
their shape in most states tc!!i yc’.i
the kind of information they con
tain. Octagonal sign indicates a stop.
You can distinguish its shape long
before you can read it. Circular sign
“I’NCLE \VlULi.\M” DIES, |
LONG ILL .AND BLIND '
alwaj’s indicates a railway. Have |
your car under control when you see |
a circular sign. Double bars on it in-1
dicate two crossings close tog“ther. j
Diamond signs are always used as
a warning of a curve or ether change ;
in the read. They must be read. Nev- j
er pass one without reading it. Square '
signs are for instruction—such as
“School”—or to indicate road direC'
tions, intersections, etc.
Never pass on turns. It is not only
very hazardous but illegal in many

and your knowledge that the family
couldn’t be safer in a car.
It’s big in every way, until you reach for the
