Young men "straight off the
farm" often make the best driv-
er-training material, according to
Elmer R. Reeves, director of the
accident prevention division of
the National Automobile Trans-
Reeves, an instructor at the
eighth annual Motor Vehicle Fleet
Supervisor training course being
held this week at the Union, ex-
plained yesterday one large truck-
ing firm with five depots in var-
ious cities discovered such un-
trained men usually adapt them-
selves to the best driving techni-
ques in the shortest time.
ANOTHER SYSTEM of train-
ing drivers utilizes "driver-train-
ers" who accompany student driv-
ers on their runs, instructing while
on the job. Employers seek a stable
personality in their drivers, and
the optimum age bracket for safe
operation is 25-45.
-- The accident rate among
members of the association is
higher from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. than
during the hours of darkness,
according to Reeves. The reason
for this oddity has not been de-
termined by the association.
"Many motorists would rather
ride the highways with trucks than
vacationists," Reeves commented.
He attributes this to increased
courteousness and safety from
truck drivers, resulting from re-
cent interest in driver training
and safety by trucking firms.
THE SUPERVISOR'S confer-
ence is being conducted by the
college of engineering and the ex-
tension service of the University,
with John C. Kohl, director of
the University transportation in-
stitute acting as director.
Object of the conference is to
train supervisors for motor fleets,
with emphasis on safe operation
