Increase in Traffic Accidents
Is Predicted for This Month

Cook Accuses

AAUP Panel


Columbians of Will Discuss

"Danger is the constant com-
panion of the motorist in Decem-
ber" Barney Gainsley, captain of
Ann Arbor traffic squad stated
yesterdy as he predicted a sharp
increase in the accident rate for
this month.'
Adjustment Slow
Early winter months have
brought a plague of traffic and pe-
destrian accidents in past years,
Gainsley asserted. He pointed out
that drivers were slow to adjust
themselves to changing driving
conditions. This rising accident
rate can be cut if motorists will
exercise additional caution, Gains-
ley stated.
Twin hazards of poor traction
and reduced visability were cited
as primary factors responsible for
the mounting traffic toll. "Over
five times greater distance is re-
quired to bring autos to a halt on
icy pavement," Gainsley said.
Average Auto Unsafe
Asserting that the average car
on the road today is over nine
years old, Gainsley added that
these autos are unsafe for any but
the most careful use.
The best argument for increased
caution is the rising traffic toll,
however. Figures released by the
Ann Arbor Police Department this
week show that four persons were
killed by autos this year, as com-
pared to two persons last year. A
total of 973 accidents of all kinds
were reported to police during the
first 11 months of this year, while
To Meet Today
Continuation of the election of
officers and consideration of a by-
law on committees will be the main
subjects on the Student Legisla-
ture's agenda when it meets at 7:30
p.m. today in the League.
Three members of the Student
Affairs Committee and members
of the Judiciary Committee will be
elected in addition to the Legisla-
ture's treasurer and representa-
tives-at-large. The by-law, pro-
viding for immediate election of
committe-men, would set-up four
new committees, including a
Gripes Committee.

only 800 accidents were marked up
during the entire years of 1945.
Captain Gainsley laid down the
following rules for safe driving
during the winter months:
1. Adjust speed to road condi-
2. Slow down well in advance of
intersection, using signals when
3. Don't follow vehicles too
4. Use tire chains which will aid
braking 50 per cent in icy weather.
5. Check windshield wipers and
6. Use brakes carefully on icy

Discloses File
After disclosing his file to news-
men, Cook notarized it and trans-
mitted it to Gov. Ellis Arnall as
an official act of the state. The

League of New York, contained
charges of. dynamiting a Negro

prominent Georgians, drive out
the Negro population and grab
power by fostering racial hates.
Solicitor General E. E. Andrews,
one of a dozen or more prosecu-
