Saturday If Only We Would Behave Our Best Y concern as an editor with the mounting toll of life and PARIS and Tunisia Monday accepted the good offices of the United States and Britain the FrenchTunisian M limb on streets and highways be gan some 35 years ago For 30 of those years I have been identified in one way or another with the organized safety movement In 1935 I took the lead in forming our Iowa State Safety Council These things I mention by way of emphasizing the change that has taken place in my approach to the traffic accident problem with the passing years Whereas once I assumed that experts with more information about the sub ject was the prime need I now am persuaded that this prime need is a dynamic evangelism I no longer think the acquisi tion of more knowledge is the most important thing in safety Whats ever so much more vital is that our people be induced to MAKE USE OF the knowledge already possessed by them A way must be found to drive home the idea that observing the rules pf safety is an indispens able element of good citizenship It must be impressed on all of us that observing the rules of safety in everyday life is a car dinal tenet of the Christian ethic which keeps reminding us I am my brothers keeper Evangelist Needed And this I insist is an assign ment for an evangelist Its a task for a zealous evangelism Would that we could summon to the task another Apostle Paul another John the Baptist another Martin Luther another John Wesley or maybe even another Billy Sun to settle crisis The offer was made Monday morning to France and Sunday to Tunisia The French Foreign Min istry and the official spokesman of the Tunisian government an nounced the acceptances The offer was made and ac cepted after Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba announced in Tunis that he had ordered a new demand be made to the UN Se curity Council for an investiga tion of the Algerian rebellion Bourguiba said he had cabled his UN delegate Mongi Slim to pm the new demand before the Council as an expansion of Tu nisias previous protest againsi he French air attack Feb 8 on he border village of Sakiet Sidi Youssef The Council is scheduled to de bate the first Tunisian complaint or Tuesday The BritishAmeri can offer was designed to avert he Council debate which the West feels would give the Com munists a new chance for propa ganda attacks on the Western Powers By offering their good offices and obtaining acceptance by France and Tunisia the United States and Britain hoped the two disputing countries weuld tell the Security Council when it meets that they already have arranged for efforts to solve the contro versy Such a move usually re sults in cutting off debate on an issue before it starts Bourguiba has said Tunisia vould withdraw its complaint to the UN if mediation But he stiffened his position after France herself Drought ia a complaint to the UN A Tunisian government spokes man Monday would give no clear answer as to whether Tunisia would now withdraw its com plaint He said in answer to ques tions The complaint has not been withdrawn and the proceed ings are following their normal course In London the Foreign Office said the United States and Britian will act only as gobetween not judges in trying to help repair relations between France and Tunisia Rock Falls Bank Sold to Group of Mason Cityans One time Billy Graham turned A group of Mason Cityans Sat urday completed the purchase of the control of the Farmers Sav ings Bank of Rock Falls from R V Wilkinson and the Bliem in terests The purchasers are

R H Isensee chairman of the board R A Potter president anc to this subject in one of his ser mons There is no way to prove my claim but I shouldnt be sur prised if his effort on that occa sion saved a hundred lives Here in lies one of the strange facts about safety It aims to keep ac cidents from happening and when they dont happen theres nothing to count or measure Only the deaths and injuries the programs failures go into the statistics I may be all wrong but it seems to me that weve now gone about as faras we can with a safety appeal which is addressed mainly if not solely to the mind The appeal from this point on if were to get anywhere must be sou directed to the heart and and spirit of man Higher Plane Needed What Im really suggesting here is that the motivating force back of the safety program be lifted to a higher level given a loftier keynote if you please Man does not live by bread alone While Im not averse to the And Sudden Death approach in my safety evangelism I am per suaded that the scare psychology cannot be the principal arrow in our quiver Let it be used where it alone will work Apply pressure to the pockelbook nerve if it will work But lets not lay our foun dations on fear or selfishness A safety evangelism compar able in zeal with the evangelism which marked the first two cen turies of our Christian religion would lead to a near universal acceptance of personal respons ibility for creating conditions of safeliving and security Every enlistee in the crusade for safety as he proceeded to his routine duties would be asking himself Am I by my acts bring ing danger to somebody else He would be thinking beyond him self Safety and Courtesy In the unfolding of this pattern all of us would Im sure be ut terly amazed by the extent to which SAFETY and COURTESY are synonymous It would be driv en home to us that of all the in gredients which go into this thing called safetynone is quite so im portant as a decent consideration of the wellbeing and comfort of others But on one point I think I might just as well snap out of my CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Lloyd Stevens Rock Falls vice president and manging officer of the bank Miss Bertha Stebens Rock
