The council's prediction was for the 18-hour period from 6 p.m. Friday unti. midnight Monday. It mas maoe with the expectation that cars will jam the nation's streets and highways over the long weekend. And, the council said, the usual critical minor- ity of drivers will show un- reasonable symptoms of great hurry, gross inattention or helpless confusion. Traffic fatalities last Labor day weekend totaled 410, eclipsing the previous high of 310 for the Labor day holiday period in J937. In all types of accidents last Labor day, persons were killed, a record for the holiday. Included were 53 drownings and 87 deaths from miscellaneous causes. The previous high was 428 in 1937.
