ROTC Gets
New Oath
Since the accusations made by
Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.)
against Maj. Irving Peress, an
Army dentist whom the Senator
accused of being a "Fifth Amend-
ment Communist," the Armed
Forces have taken renewed pre-
cautions to check the loyalty of
their personnel.
A new loyalty oath for all per-
sonnel of the armed forces was is-
sued Feb. 1, to replace an older
form of December, 1950.
.* * *
MAJOR CHANGE in the new
form is the inclusion of about 60
organizations, added to the At-
torney General's list of subversive
organizations since 1950.
Those added ranged from the
American Peace Crusade to the
Committee for Constitutional
and Political Freedom and Peo-
ple's Drama, Inc.
If any armed force personnel has
attended any meeting of the or-
ganizations, or engaged in activi-
ties sponsored by them, or has been
in any way asociated with them, he
must write a full statement of the
nature of the association on tlhe
Armed Forces oath.

Women's Athletic Pool

By LEE MARKS
Will you be out in a car this
evening on a date?
If so, you will be driving at the
most dangerous time of the week,
according to "The Passing Scene,"
a pamphlet released by the Trav-
elers Insurance Company of Hart-
ford, Conn.
* * *
APPROXIMATELY one-fourth
of all traffic deaths in 1953 camge
on Saturdays, with close to 50
per cent occurring on weekends,
the pamphlet reported.
With 38,500 deaths (900 more
than in 1952), and 2,140,000 in-
juries (highest in history), the
traffic picture in 1953 "is not a
pleasant one," according to the
booklet.
Speed was by far the biggest
killer, accounting for 46.4 per cent
of all deaths, and more than 680,-
000 casualties. In 91.1 per cent of
the deaths, a man was at the
wheel, and in 88.8 per cent of the
non-fatal accidents, men drove.
The insurance company's pamph-
let pointed out, however, that these
figures do not necessarliy indicate

that women make better drivers,
since too many other factors are
involved.
While commenting that in 1953
auto accidents killed one person
every 14 minutes and injured an-
other every 15 seconds, "The Pass-
ing Scene" pointed out that driv-
ers under the age of 25 are "in
vloved in far more than their pro-
portionate share of accidents."
"When a driver puts the blame
on his car, it's nine to one he's
wrong," claimed the pamphlet.
Statistics showed that 98 per cent
of all cars involved in accidents
were in good condition. Further,
the majority of accidents occured
on clear days and on straight, dry
roads.
"Although it is not our function
to moralize, the conclusion is ob-
vious. In most accidents, the guil-
ty party is man and not machine,
mind and not motor, reflex and
not roadway," declared "The
Passing Scene."
Gamma Globulin
Limits Removed
All restrictions have been re-
~moved in permitting the use of
gamma globulin to modify the se-
verity of measles accordingto
County Health Department direc-
tor, Dr. Otto K. Engelke.
