This was the foremost conclu sion arrived at recently when some men and women from every part of the middle west convened in Chicago at a confer ence called by the Presidents Committee for Traffic Safety It wasnt I should hasten toj add the only conclusion Nor was there anything start lingly new about it As far back as 1946 at the first highway safety conference held in the na tional capital on invitation from the White House this same truth was recognized That year Paul G Hoffman the publicspirited automobile manufacturer was appointed to rally public opinion behind a frontal attack on traffic slaugh ter The term used was public support rather than public but they meant the same thing A couple of years later when the Indiana man chosen to administer the Marshall Plan it fell to me to head up the commit tee for public support in the na tional program growing out of the White House conferences I had served as vice chairman of thecommittee under Paul Hoff man Victory Wouldnt Stay Won You may say and theres a measure of truth in the observa tion that if Mr Hoffman and I and those who succeeded us had done the job assigned to us sufficiently well it wouldnt be necessary at this

victory that will stay put What seems perfectly clear at least I never heard it disputed during my three days in Chicago in connection with the regional conference to which I have re ferred is that if the Ameri can public wanted safety on its streets and highways bad enough to pay the price an amazing de gree of traffic safety could be had almost overnight The formula by which this could be achieved is known A top authority in the field has said that the causes and cure for traf fic slaughter arc as well known as the causes and cure of such epidemic diseases as smallpoxj and diphtheria

election was being watched nationally for two guides though indications were that it does not bear the importance nationally of balloting in some larger itates Some cities said they noted a ilight increase in Democratic vot ing early in the day but the in crease was not pronounced enough to draw any conclusion of a major shift from Republican to Democratic strength One of the high points is the contest for senator and how it may reflect the attitude of lowans toward President Eisen howers farm program and poli cies The other guide will be the Re publican and Democratic vote to tals which could indicate the Presidents strength now com pared with 1952 However since Iowa has no pro vision for a presidential prefer ence primary it will give no in dication of the relative strength of two
