Associate playground director tumbling acts Are beginning to take on smoothness and Grace. In a if motorists could visualize conditions As they Are in this City a said Sergt. Wilbur Hansen in charge of traffic a i am sure Many of them would drive with greater j care and observe the traffic rules to the the sergeant called attention to a City Street map on the Wall in his office on which Are displayed Glass headed pins of different colors showing where All accidents in the City have occurred so far this year. He invites interested motorists to inspect the map. The South Side of the City has had the most serious accidents so far this year. That Section of the map is dotted with red headed pins showing where persons were injured. Ignore red lights. The traffic signals the sergeant said were placed to reduce accidents at congested intersections but in some sections they done to seem to have come up to expectations. A notable intersection is that at Taylor Avenue and sixteenth Street he says where four persons have been injured in crashes so far this year. Fourteenth Street one of the main South Side arterial is dotted with red headed pins which Indi-1 Cate Many accidents in which persons were injured.

Stan and writer issues plea to motoring Public dear editor this is another plea to the Public. And because its a plea and no More i shall make it Short and to the Point so perhaps it w ill sink in. My plea is addressed to the motoring Public in general and this in Short is what i plead for will the Drivers of cars and their passengers please keep their arms inside the car. Except when signalling. One does t realize How disconcerting it is to other Drivers to have aunt Jenny in the car ahead pointing out the Beauty spots to her passenger friends. And while Little Johnny is holding his Arm out the window to see which Way the wind is blowing the car in which he rides holds up potential passing traffic behind because How is Tho Driver behind to know that ifs not Papas Arm out the window to signal a turn or something. Arm vigils Are an important part of driving. By the use of these signals a Driver can Tell those behind him what he plans to do. Other Drivers rely upon these signals to gauge their own actions. The usefulness of these important Arm signals is completely lost if tim pointing waving and gesticulating out of car windows become a matter of common practice As it seems to have become.

Boating and swimming could be enjoyed in the summer and ice skating during tile Winter. Or has always been a nuzzle to me Why smaller cities than Racine even take the trouble to make artificial lagoons for boating and Racine can t make use of the facilities nature gave her. The Island Park has so much natural Beauty which no amount of artificial it 5 in another Park could Ever equal. Years ago visitors were always shown the Island Park a it was a spot that Racine could Well be proud of. Now tile garbage cans tin cans Etc. In the River Are very unsightly and the Park itself in t As Well taken care of As it should be. Many cities would give thousands of dollars for a natural Island Park and a River winding through their City As Root River does but Racine does no to even appreciate god s gift to her. Racine was founded because of Root River. The Island Park was log ated because of the natural Beauty and suitability for a Park. Thank you Verv sincere in for the bulletin. J.
