ministrators were outlined for the
group by Louis R. Morony, executive
director of the American Association
of Motor Vehicle Administrators, who
cited the importance of uniform mo-
tor vehicle legislation and said, "We
have endeavored in so far as possible
to extend reciprocity among the sev-
eral states. Not only must legislation
be uniform, but it is equally neces-
sary that administration policies be
uniform also," he added.
The afternoon session of the Insti-
tute heard such speakers as A. vander
Zee, vice-president of the Chrysler
Corporation, who spoke in the absence
of Paul G. Hoffman, president of the
Automotive Safety Foundation and
of the Studebaker Corporation; Dr.

Williams, director of the National
Safety Council's Public Safety Divi-
sion; and Dr. Ralph L. Lee of thb
General Motors Corporation.
All of the afternoon session's speak-
ers agreed that safety training today
was largely a matter of catching up
with the tremendous strides of popu-
lation and commerce in the past 50 o'
60 years.
"The only age group which has re-
duced its fatality toll in the last 15
years has been that represented
by - children attending elementary
schools," declared Mr. Marsh. "To

Correct For Fall Campus Wear
The approach of fall should serve as a reminder to all of you that when
school opens in Septemoer, you'll want to be dressed as smartly and com-
fortably as possible.
One of the best bets for the first warm days of classes will be a dress
tailored along the lines of this pure-dye crepe. It comes in rust, navy and
old rose, and is of a shirt waist style with a stitch-pleated skirt which is
fitted over the hips. The leather belt comes in contrasting shades accord-
ing to the color of the dress.
Later on in the season when it's still too warm for a top coat, this
sweater and skirt dress with the suspender vest will be a serviceable outfit
to wear. The ribbed sweater and gored wool skirt are shown in French
blue and the vest copies in an off shade of red.

Those With Low Budgets
Often Worst Offenders;
Bustles Are A Menace
When we see some of the creations
that desperate designers and buyers
put before the women of this country
we wonder just how high an intelli-
gence quota they think we possess.
But year after year women are sucked
in by "the latest thing" and foolishly
squander money on clothes that are
not fit to be worn to a dog fight.
We have all seen the way thistle
took the country by storm a few sea-
sons back, and how the sickening
shade of olive green has captivated
the buying public this past season.
Last winter, styles hit a new low and
formals with hoop skirts were in the
spot-light. These skirts, which were
worn over wire frameworks, were not
only impossible to shag in but also
took up too much room on a dance
floor where space was at a premium.
Then too, every spring and fall we
have to reckon with the much-sland-
ered women's hats which seem to be-
come increasingly ridiculous.
If a woman has a large clothes
allowance then she can afford to give
every new fad a try, and after wearing
it a few times put it away to be for-
gotten. But the average woman shop-
per has to budget her wardrobe care-
fully, and it is rattier pathetic to
think that it is usually these very
ones who buy the outlandish outfits.
It takes a good deal of planning
and study to build up a wardrobe
that is both tasteful and becoming,
and there is no excuse for throwing
good sense and precaution to the
winds and putting away a smart
breton in preference for a hat which
consists mainly of a bird perched
over one eye and veils and streamers
hanging down the back. You should
not buy this type of thing not only
because it will make you look like
a fool but also because everyone else
in town is sure to have one just
like it.
This year we are viewing with
alarm the resurrection of laced cor-
sets and bustles. It has taken women
many years to reach the stage of
wearing clothes that are both com-
fortable and practicable, but now it
seems that we should all lace our-
selves in so that it's an effort to
breathe and wear an outfit that
makes us look as though we're suf-
fering from a severe case of lordosis
backline. Just wait till you try danc-
ing to a fast number in a tight cor-
Honor Kentucky
Sudents At Cut
Many Attend Reception Of
Dr. And Mrs. Purdom
Honoring Kentuckians attending
the Summer Session, Dr. and Mrs.
Luther Purdom held a watermelon
cut at 5 p.m. Sunday in the garden
of their home on Cambridge Rd.
Included in the gathering were Dr.
and Mrs. Louis A. Hopkins, Colonel
Basil Edwards, Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Haun, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Crook, John
Holmes and Lewis Gasdon of Lexing-

set, and wait till you try sitting at a
bridge table with a bustle on.
Yes, we can talk and fume until
we're blue in the face and still a large
percentage of the coeds next fall will
appear in "the latest thing," fash-
ioned doubtless after a Paris model,
but there may be a few courageous
souls who will see the utter stupidity
in looking like every other girl on the
campus, and they will wear the style
and color which is most becoming to
them. So let the uniformed herd
gather rosebuds while they may, the
rest of you will garner the orchids if
you accent your individuality.
Disaster Toll
Is 23 Deaths
96 Are Found Injured In

who raved against the company the;
day before the wreck.
The victims were hurled screaming
to their death after the swaying din-
ing car caught in the superstructure
of a 60-foot steel bridge over Hum-
boldt river and pulled the train and
the bridge into the ravine..
The whole train was set to rocking
after it lost the support of an out-
side rail as it rounded a turn traveling
60 miles an hour. The rail had been
moved four inches inward. To do this
it was necessary to pull 44 spikes
from 22 ties, remove the supporting
angle bars, move the 30 foot rail,
weighing 1,690 pounds, and spike it
down again.
Railway officials calculated it
would take two strong men more
than half an hour. The rail was
moved in a four-hour interval be-
tween two trains-moved carefully so
as not to, disturb a block signal elec-
tric cable lying between the tracks
which would have warned engineer
E. F. Hecox.

be lent to students each semester.
He'd graduated from high school in

The boy made a complete success
of his college career. He was a pro-
