Thirteen auto drivers were arrested
for speeding in one night during the
present week .in Muscatine.

the laws are laughed at by car owners,
there was not a solitary arrest, with
the exception of one where a boy was

if enforced, would quickly put an end
to the recklessness of auto pilots.

remarked a Kock Island -visitor the
other night, "and I want to say to you
frankly I have yet to find a town
where automobile drivers take such
liberties as they do in Rock Island, in
your business and residence streets
Only today I taw cars whirl around
some of your corners at a 25-mile clip,
and I saw women gasp as the sides of
the cars brushed their garments. I
suppose you have ordinances that fix
the speed at which automobiles may
run within the city limits, but Judging
by my observations your drivers do
not take them seriously. You are go
ing to have a few bad accidents, due
to this disregard of the laws and fail

officials will wake up.- It has happen
ed in other cities and you are bound
to get yours.

The work of the colored people here
along social settlement lines is being
extended and strengthened by Rev. W.
H. Saunders, local colored pastor and
superintendent, according to a state
ment by that gentleman today.
"Booker Washington endorses the
idea of this kind of work as an abso
lute necessity toward the moral and
social redemption of the negro in
northern cities," says Mr. Saunders.
"Many white people of the city real
izing that the colored people here have
no Y. .M. C. A., Y. W. C. A. or rest
rooms, are sensible of the responsibil
ity vesting upon the colored pastors to
care for their rising young, through the
medium of social settlements, and are
coperating in a tangible way that the
black man's burden may be lightened.
