State Aids In
Drive To Curb
Toll By Traf fic
Three State Officials And
Gov. Fitzgerald Pledge
Support To Drive
Governor Seeks Stricter
Requirements For Auto
LANSING, NOV. 19.-(P)--Four
agencies of the state government to-
day were behind the campaign to
curb the toll of traffic on Michigan
The statewide safety campaign was
spurred Monday night when four
state officials, including Gov. Fitz-
gerald, pledged their support to the
drive and advocated reforms designed
to make the traffic lanes safer for the
motorist and pedestrian.
The state government, through four
of its officials, put its power behind
the campaign at a safety mass meet-
"It is nice to generalize and say the
highways are the property of all the
people," said Gov. Fitzgerald. "But
we all know the use of our highways
should not be available to those who
cannot use them without endanger-
ing the lives of others."
Suggests Physical Exam
As a remedy he advocated a tight-
ening of requirements for obtaining a
drivers license. He suggested phys-
ical examinations and a provision
that applicants must have a thor-
ough knowledge of traffic laws and be
familiar with handling a machine.
He also urged frequent inspections of
automobiles and declared that the
educational campaign authorized by
the administrative board will be
"If drivers don't drive right after
this campaign of education it will be
because they don't care to or be-
cause they lack the physical or men-
tal capacity to handle a motor vehicle
with due regard to the rights of
May Deny Licenses
Through a system being launched
by the department of state petty
traffic offenders may find a barrier
to renewing their licenses, it was an-
bounced by Secretary of State Orville
E. Atwood. He said that a record of
minor accidents is being compiled and
urged enforcing officials to report all
such incidents to his department.
"The time is not far distant when
an applicant will be denied a license
merely because a study of his driving
record has convinced the department
he is not the right kind of driver to
turn loose on the highway," Atwood
asserted. "A bad automobile record
is as much a disgrace as a bad police
record. Cars can kill more than
Announces New Survey
State Highway Commissioner Mur-
ray D. Van Wagoner announced that
a million dollar traffic survey was
launched Monday with the aid of
Federal funds. A study of conditions
with a view to eliminating hazards
will be the aim, he said.
A campaign of education in the
schools was promised by Eugene B.
Elliott, state superintendent of public
instruction. The campaign will be
designed to have children carry safety
lessohs home to their parents.
Relentless pursuitand sure pun-
ishment of traffic violators are neces-
sary if the traffic toll is to be lessened,
Judge John J. Maher, of the Detroit
traffic court, told the audience at the

Gives Helpful Advice To
Students In Composing'
An article entitled "Dear Sir:",
written by Prof. A. D. Moore of the
electrical engineering department and,
featured in the November issue of the
Michigan Technic, begins a new ser-
ies of Technic articles concerning the
croblems of employment as they must
be met by engineering students.
The November Technic went on
sale yesterday in the first-floor cor-
ridors of the West and East Engi-
neering buildings at its regular price
of 15 cents. ,
Professor Moore's article gives
helpful advice to engineering stu-
dents on the best methods of writing
a "job-hunting letter." He intro-
duces his article with the remark
"You do not know how to write a job-
hunting letter," and then proceeds
to describe in full detail how such let-
ters should be written. He lays great-
est stress on the presentation of the
job-seeker's personal record in the
proper form and with the correct
factual material that should be in-
In inaugurating the employment
series, Professor Moore states: "Al-
though the articles are addressed to
seniors, the hope is that no freshman
will pass them by. We can define a
good senior in 1939 as a man who
learned certain things about the job-
getting business back in 1935, and
began working on himself right

Junius B. Wood, former foreign
and special correspondent for thei
Chicago Daily News, who only recent-
ly resigned after 30 years in the serv-
ice of that paper, discussed foreign
news from the correspondent's view-
point in an interview before his ad-
dress on "Your Foreign News" to the
University Press Club of Michigan
here last Friday.
"Censorship is a natural feature
of all dictatorship," he stated, when1
asked what difficulties the European
correspondent encountered now that
he did not meet earlier in the cen-
tury. He pointed out that since
the Nazi regime had begun in Ger-
many, several English and Czecho-
slovakian newsmen had been asked
to leave the country, but only one
American, Dorothy Thompson (Mrs.
Sinclair Lewis) had been barred, al-
though Edgar Ansel Mowrer had been
warned that "it might be better for
him to leave."
He also cited several cases of such
disbarrment of journalists in Fascist
Italy. "Even in France," he pointed
out, "the censorship is pretty strict
"They're all on a war basis now,"
he said, when asked if censorship
conditions approached the war-time
As the chief qualification for for-
eign corresponding service, he speci-

suggested a background training in

science, and the necessary languages.
He maintained that foreign news,
now as it always has been, is colored
by the policies of the individual news-
