A HIGHWAY MENACE
Drunken drivers are on the ram
page in North Carolina and con
stitute one of the factors contrib
uting to the current serious in
crease in traffic deaths on the
streets and highways of this state,
the Highway Safety Division re
ported last week.
Basis for this report was a re
cord number of revocations for
drunken driving and considerable
increase in traffic deaths caused
by drunken drivers.
Revocations for January, Feb
ruary and March totaled 1,809, the
highest three-months total on re
cord. Since enforcement of the
law relating to drunken driving is
more or less constant, an increase
in revocations points to an increase
in the prevalence of drunken driv
ing, officials said.
Drunken drivers killed 120 per
sons in North Carolina last year,
this being 12 per cent of the total
of 990 traffic fatalities. Seventeen
of the 87 traffic deaths in the state
in February of this year and 10 of
the 70 verified March fatalities to
date were caused by drinking driv
ers, according to records of the
safety division. Thus 27 out of
the 157 fatalities for the two
months period, or 17 per cent of
jthe total resulted from drinking
land driving. This was five ner
cent above the 1940 average.
"Twenty-seven people were kill
ed in this state in February and
March by drivers who were foolish
enough to think that they could
drive safely after taking a few
drinks," declared Donald Hocutt,
director of the Highway Safety
Division. "Of all types of traffic
accidents. I know of none for
which there is as little justification
or excuse as those involving drink
''To this end that accidents of
this type may be eliminated as a
factor in our accident problem, I
appeal to all North Carolina driv
ers to refrain from mixing their
drinking and driving, and I urge
all enforcement officers in the
state to be unrelenting and ex
tremely vigilant in apprehending
and bringing to justice this ruth
less killer. the drunken driver."

AGRICULTURE AND DEFENSE
Apparently' Congress has decided
that the farmer will not be "the
forgotten man" in national de
fense. The largest annual agri
cultural appropriation in history
was approved last week by the
senate appropriations committee
which, it is estimated, would add
about a billion dollars annually to
the income of the farmer.
The war has not brought any
prosperity to the farmer and farm
prices have been low due in part
to surpluses. And there is little
prospect for any decided increase
of farm products for export par
ticularly tobacco, cotton and
wheat. Hitler has swallowed some
of our best customers. Italy is out
of the market. England needs
guns more than our farm products,
South America is not a profitable
market at present.
