Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 13, 1954, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper or th MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS MASON CITY STORES Open Friday and Saturday Nights December 1718 Until 9 Oclock VOL LXI Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY DECEMBER 13 19S4 This Iapcr ot Two Ono No GOP Chiefs Air Issues One Mans Opinion A CemmtnUry By W EARL HALL GlobeGoiette Editor How Much Do We Wont Safety M Y central belief about traffic safety is going to be put to a real test Wednesday Dec 15 when the United States conducts its first SD Day SD Day as Im sure you know stands for Safe Driving Day Wednesday will be the culmina tion of a months effort on the part of national safety authorities and local safety groups to instill in every individual in America a wish to drive and walk safely on that one day The reasoning is that if the key to safety is found for this one day it can be used to unlock the safety chest on each one of the other 364 days of the year Nobody of course thinks that safety is mea lured by or limited to one day This SD idea was born last June In connection with the traffic safety summoned by Presi dent Eisenhower What was termed Action Committee was set up for the purpose of getting down to cases in our campaign against carelessness Up to Individual The fact about safety emphasized more often than anything else is that it centers in the individual citizen living in a specific com jnunity The problem has its state and national aspects its true but the heart and core of it is to be found at the local level in my home home town and thousands of other home towns thrpughwi the land dont want to leave it there foRjtheres an inference that safety is community problem and that perhaps you and I as individuals can handle of it by proxy much as we do the many services performed by local government We pay our taxes and expect some body else to do the work But safety isnt that kind of thing Nobody else can guarantee you safety on the streets and high ways You and only you must that as your personal as iignment It isnt something that can be delegated Well all of this is what is at the heart of SD Day The goal of the effort is to implant in every Ameri can a DESIRE TO LIVE SAFELY ON THIS ONE DAY THAT WILL TAKE PRIMACY OVER JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE Big Nttd It How strangely familiar this musi be to those of you who have hearc me repeat times without number the core of my When nine out of ten Americans want safety want safety bac enough to pay the price of safety well be on the way to having safety almost To this in recent years Ive coupled the observation that the great need of the safety cause these days is not more experts bin some evangelist capable of making each of us understand that safety is an indispensable part of good citizenship Im not dreamer enough to as that this condition nine out of ten wanting safety enough to pay the price for1 it is goinj to come about in any one month or any one year much less a day But it would seem to me that or SD Day theres an extremely gooc chance of coming close enough to jny main specifications to indicate whether theres anything to m main thesis OIM Death Each Minuttt On the ordinary week day in th United States theres an averag of 104 persons killed on our street and highways Last year one per ton died of a motor vehicle acci dent every 14Vi minutes aroum the clock The 1953 death toll reached But that isnt the whole of thi story only the start In 195 there was an injury in traffi in America every 2 seconds The totalfor the year rai to injured persons in Jured to the point of being disabled beyond the day of the accident Heres a grim fact to
