Average Life Span Now .
Reaches Record High,
Washington Here's a bitter pill
for the people who yearn for the
"good old days" when life was
simple and allegedly longer: Ameri
cans are living longer today than
The average life span in the
United States has reached a new
high, and this despite record-breaking
whisky consumption and thous
ands of automobile wrecks every
The census bureau reports that
the average life span now is 62.5
years an increase of 3.3 years over
the previous decade,
f ute the doleful-predictions of well
meaning elders who forsee a sin
ful, early death for succeeding,
During the gay 90's, for exam
ple, the life span was 60 years. In
1900, the average length of life
for a woman in the United States
was 51 years and 48 years for men.
Today, the average is 64.5 years for
women and 60.6 years for men.
While the span of life has been
increasing steadily, the American
public has been drinking more
whisky, smoking more cigarettes
and getting in more automobile
accidents than ever before. Yet
they live longer. .
In 1930, during prohibition, legal
whiskey consumption was 1,406,706
gallons. In 1940, with bars dotting
most of the land, the whisky total
was 81,267,368 gallons.
Ten years ago, automobile acci
dent deaths averaged about 30,000

Frank A. Underwood was elected
Sunday school superintendent of
the Hazelwood Baptist church, suc
ceeding J. V. Blalock, who has held
the office for the past several years
Mr. Blalock stated he desired some
one else fill the office.
Other officers were as follows:
Jasper Brock, pianist, Mrs. H. J.
Hyatt, choirister, D. A. Winchester.-;
annual rate of auto fatalities was
up to about 33,000.
And to give an idea how many
more cigarettes and cigars the pub
lic is smoking, the tobacco tax yield
to the government during the calen
dar year, 1940, was $640,998,972,
compared with $445,754,711 in 1930.
