The rental department would lose out then because the Small fee paid each semester would not cover tile damage done to the Hooks.

V hat about poor baby Lindbergh he Hail to give his life and thai left a pros turn to Page 14, column 3 Case holdings formerly site of Many Homes founder to residence replaced by hoist loading platform. By see m. See if one walks about in the Large area occupied by the main works of the j. I. Case company one never for an instant would believe All of that area waa a residential District at one time. One of the residents of that area was Jerome i. Case founder of the company who improved the threshers he purchased in the East to such an extent that much labor was saved the Farmer by cleaning the Grain without the use of a separate machine after it had passed through the Thresher. Old timers inform me that or. Case made his Home at about the Point where today is located a loading platform and hoist on the Northeast Corner of Bridge and Huron streets. There were Many other Small Homes in that immediate District and fit. Clair Street now shut off by the Case Plant from fixate Street was dotted with Homes a1 of Frame construction. There were residences on the South Side of Bridge Street As Well and it is j estimated that the population of that area was More than 300 persons. Plant brings removal. When Success crowned or. Case s Enterprise and there was need for More buildings. Additional land was purchased and the Plant was enlarged. Soon other new buildings were required to meet the production demands and gradually what was a residential District was converted into a fac j tory arca. The Case company office was located at the Northeast Corner of Bridge and Erie streets and Headquarters were there until the Large new main office on state Street was erected. At the Corner of Bridge and Ontario streets stood a Frame hotel known As the wheat sheaf and it is taken for granted it derived its name from being located so close to the Thresher Plant. Birthplace of agriculturist. One of the old structures located near that area was the norwegian danish methodist Church now the Trinity m. E. Church on i Afi Alle Street. That Church was located on the w est Side of Huron Street at the Point South of Liberty Street where the North Western switch track to the Case Plant passes under Huron Street. One of the separate industries located to the South of the methodist Church on the West Side of Huron Street was the boiler Plant of the i. Freeman amp Lions company. It was a Large Frame and Wood Structure extending from the Street to the River Dock and it was there the office of the Wisconsin agriculturist was located. I remember the time when Stephen Freeman. Son of the j manufacturer and i took out an armful of copies of that Publica i lion and sought to sell them on the Street. Needless to say we made no sales As there was no demand for an agricultural paper on the part of City residents. Large boarding Houe. One of the Large Frame structures. Located at the Southeast Corner of Huron and Liberty streets was the Reiplinger boarding House. It went the Way of others Many years ago. On the Southwest Corner of those streets stood the Large Brick residence of John w. Johnson who served As Justice of the peace and As chief of police Here two terms. He a i to w As engaged in insurance and real estate and he had As his office a Small Frame Structure locale on the South end of his property facing East on Huron Street. To the. West of h s Home was a two Story Frame Structure and a Small cottage also of Frame and those were either razed or moved away in order to make Way for the Large steel water Tower now located there. On Huron Street were several other Small Homes and one Large modern a then Brick residence but they too gave Way to the expansion program carried out by the Case company.

The figures on automobile accidents for 1934. Just released make horrifying Reading. To learn that our automobiles killed nearly As Many americans As German guns killed during the world War is to realize that our motor traffic situation has become one of our most pressing major problems. And Jet terrible As the figures arc. We done to really get horrified by them we done to really realize that the problem is great. The situation does no to come Home to us Sorne a can to.

Compare this percentage we tilth Chicago which has a death rate of 26.9 for every 100.000 population. The latter is almost double that of Washington. A Othis is How to the examinations Are conducted. The applicant goes before a member of the traffic department and passes the required Standard tests. A card is filled out at that time and sent to the state for a Driver s License. The Standard eyesight test for motor Drivers is 20, 70 Snellen Type with each Eye separately. A othe expression not generally understood Means that of an object is 70 feet away from you and you can just discern what it is with Normal eyes you have 20 20 vision. But if you must walk until you Are Only 20 feet away before you can Tell what it is you then have Only 20 70 vision. How to try it. A Otry it for yourself. Ink some Black letters in a 14-Inch Square such ase a o. Then stand 20 feet Back and see if you can read these letters easily with each Eye separately. If you can you will pass the eyesight motor Driver test for sight. If you have but one Eye. Then you must step Hack 70 feet and be Able to read the same letters. % a again fix on an object 20 feet away from you. Extend both arms in the same direction in front of you and slowly spread arms apart and wiggle your fingers. When you come to the Point where j you can just see your fingers wiggling and at the same time Are fixing on Distant object see if your arms Are subtending at an Angle of 140 degrees. A Othis last test measures your peripheral vision and must Subtend a 140-degree Angle we there the first test measures your Centra vision and Only subtends an Angle of from 5 to to degrees. The question might be asked a of what use is this peripheral vision it its purpose is to detect any approaching objects on either Side while driving. People lacking this kind of vision strike against furniture and door frames while walking around the House. Color blindness. A othe next Point of interest is color blindness. But fear not those of you who Are so affected because scientists have found that by adding Blue to Green color the unfortunate color Blind person is Able to Tell the difference Between red and Green. A othe necessity for More stringent examinations of All Drivers of All motor vehicles ought not to need More explanation than is Here Given.

A a Harry Green Street car conductor Isno to superstitious but he to a of jittery now about the number 13. As he Rode on car no. 13 of his line on the 13th, $13 from his Cash and ticket bag was whisked away from the door Hook on which they Hung unseen by him. He said he suspected a Witch. Lines for ladies a former daily feature now running Only in the Street and Highway safety has become a subject with which every Man woman and child should become More familiar. The terrible toll of motor fatalities is increasing yearly in spite of the advancement of traffic engineering. This can be traced Only to human carelessness recklessness and neglect. Accidents do not happen. They Are caused. Not by failure of mechanical parts not by the failure of authorities to have adequate engineering details worked out. They Are caused by reckless disregard of the simple rules of Highway safety. Hon to icy arc caused. The majority of our local accidents Are caused in the residential Section. Why because the j i motorists have not. Taught themselves to be a safety conscious. How to Many of our Drivers remove the foot from the accelerator and place it on the Brake As they near an intersection very very few to. Yet if we were to ask these Drivers where the majority of our accidents occur tim answer would be a oat tile intersection. In other words the average Motorist does not exercise any More care when he or she is approaching the danger zone than is exercised in the Middle of the Block. Let us take one of these accidents and see what occurred. A i driving North b is driving East both at a rate of Speed approximately 25 Miles per hour in a. J residential zone. They approach i an intersection at the same rate of Speed. 37 feet a second. At this rate they Are both travelling approx innately 37 feet per second. Almost the Width of the Ordinary lot and More than the Width of tile average intersection. It takes a fraction of a second for the Eves of a and i to see that danger is imminent another fraction of a second for the eyes to Tell the brain and for the right foot to leave the accelerator and use the Brake. In this Short space of time an Accident occurs. If by a. Miracle they manage to avoid hitting each other they cannot both Hope to avoid striking tile curb. The foregoing is what occurs in most of our accidents. They can be avoided there is no question about that for the reason that they were caused by human recklessness. Carelessness and neglect caused by Drivers who have not As yet. Recognized the serious responsibility that is theirs the moment they sit behind the steering wheel. Until these Drivers become safety conscious we cannot Hope to see a reduction in traffic accidents.
