Inadvertent Violator or
Several automobile - wrecks have
occurred in the county within the
past few months and have been
caused from various things. Of
course a number of them have been
caused by mixing liquor and gaso
line which is improper without ques
tion or discussion.
But all the wrecks reported have
not been due to the above cause. A
close study of the traffic situation
will show two kinds of violators,
the inadvertent violator and the
The inadvertent violator means
to be careful and competent but he
is usually a poor driver, or slow in
his reactions, or is absent minded
or is easily distracted from the busi
ness of operating a car. Because of
him, many severe accidents occur.
The solution in his case is a li
censing authority which passes on
every driver's fitness, refusing those
who are mentally .or physically in
capable of safe .driving, no matter
how good their intentions may be or
from what walk of life he derives.

The co-operative movement is
gradually bringing agriculture out
of chaos. It is laying the founda
tion on which permanent profitable
and good markets can be built. That
must be done before any progress at
all can be made.
Co-operation then, is simply en
lightened self interest. It isn’t a
quack panacea for all farmers' ills.
It is akin to the treatment of a first
class surgeon who knows that when
ever possible, he must get his pa

it would be well for all of them to1
