COURTESY PAYS, TRAFFIC COP SAYS Pedestrian, Thinking Of Blonds, Is Cause Of Accidents By CLAIRE COX United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO (U.R) — The man in the street is running the nations flat feet flat-footed, a veteran police man finds. Lt. Frank Andrews, head of the traffic department of the Evans ton police department, said pedes trians are giving the cops a pain in the ankle by risking life and bmb darting across the nation’s busv streets. The average American may be a peace-loving man, he said, but he starts stirring up trouble the minute he gets out in the street. Andrews said even the motor ists, who blame every mishap on pedestrians, become fleet - footed traffic dodgers when they get out from behind the wheel. “Neither motorists nor pedestri ans are very polite,” Andrews complained. “That’s the chief cause of traffic accidents—t hat and day-dreaming.” Andrews already has helped es tablish Evanston as one of the nation’s safest cities in the ratings of the National Safety Council. He’s been concentrating on motor ists, but soon is going to start a pedestrian safety campaign which he hopes will be copies in other cities. Blondes a Hazard He said a pedestrian with head high in the air can look both ways for traffic, glance at a stop sign and then proceed to walk right into the path of an automobile— all because hes trying to figure out how to make an extra dollar on a business deal, or thinking about that blonde he passed two blocks back. Crossing streets against signals, jay-walking and darting through traffic to catch the five o'clock bus also land hundreds of persons in hospitals every year, Andrews said. He added .that a large percent FOR TRAVEL . . . Striking tailleur with. unusual flange shoulder, in smooth, sum mer-toeight wool worsted. Perfect for vacation trip, MISS MARIAN ADAMS BYRD—Whose engagement is announced today by her sister, Mrs. G. H. Hall, to Sgt. William L. Vick, USMC, Camp Lejeune and Paducah, Ky., son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Vick, also of Paducah. The wedding will take place on July 5. NEW BEEF BREED RAISED IN TEXAS More Meat, Milk, And Less Ticks, Cat tlemen Say By CLAUDE RAMSEY United Press Staff Correspondent WESLACO, Tex. (U.R1 — A new breed of cattle, big, white and tick-proof, is being developed by two south Texas cattlemen, Fred Turner and Harl Thomas. The breed, a cross between the Brahman and Charollais, has all the best characteristics of each, Turner said. When a registry book for the breed, called Charbray, is set up within the next two years, it will become the second ever develop ed in this country. Charbrays are three-fourths Charollais, the French work-beef-and-milk breed, and one-fourth Brahman, the sa cred cow of India. “Putting one - quarter Brahman in the Charollais is like adding bacon grease to biscuits,” Turner said. “It even improved the Char ollais characteristics. Grows Rapidly “The best feature of the breea is its rapid growth. Our calves put on 100 pounds a month on the range. “But aside from the growth, the Charbray is as good a milk cow as a shorthorn and will dress out 65 to 68 per cent beef. Most beef cattle dress out around 55 per cent.” Turner pointed to a chunky calf. “Look at that rump. The Char bray grows the high-priced cuts.” Both parent breeds are “skin breathers” and consequently can stand the hot climate of south Texas. The Charbray inherits this characteristic and because of it is tick-free. Cattle ticks only bother the “English” oreeds which have few pores in their skin. Born a light tan, the Charbray usually bleaches out to a cream colored white in a few weeks. The Brahaman hump is bred out but the Charbray carries a slight hint of the Brahman dewlap, the loose skin under the neck. All Char brays have horns. Shipped Elsewhere “We’re trying to prove the breed before setting up registry books,” Turner said. “We’ve shipped cattle to Florida, the swamps of Louisiana, California and Okla homa. All places report the breed doing as well there as here. “We think because it’s three quarters Charollais the Charbray can stand the high cold altitudes as well as the hot plains country.” The only other breed developed in this country \yas the Santa Ger trudis, five-eighths shorthorn and three-eighths Brahman, at Texas’ big King Ranch. The Santa Ger trudis breed, a big red animal, is completely owned by the ranch, which will not sell its females. Turner and Wilson plan no such monopoly of their breed. “We want everyone to use the breed and besides, we don’t have enough land to handle fhat many cattle,” Turner said. Miss Lois Cashwell To Be Installed As Club President Miss Lois Cashwell, recently elected president of the Blue Triangle club of the Young wom ens’ Christian association will be installed at a meeting of the or ganization Tuesday night at 8 o’clock. The meeting will be held in the YWCA building, Miss Elizabeth Clark, retiring president, said. Also to be installed are: Miss Thelma Edgerton, vice-president; Miss Mary McDuffie, secretary; and Miss Lois Cooper, treasurer. age of pedestrian traffic violations are by persons who don’t drive. “They don’t know7 how to esti mate the speed cf an oncoming automobile, and they don’t under stand rules of right-of-way,” he said. “Apparently there's only one so lution to the whole problem. We'll have to give pedestrians tickets just like the drivers.” The man in the streei doesn’t sem to care much whether he risks his neck he added, but he’ll think twice before ducking through traffic, if it’s going to cost him a couple of dollars. * We, the Women __ BY RUTH MILLETT “The* housewife, not the man across the street, is the restaur rant owner's real competitor,” John W. Ebersole, president of the National Restaurant Association, recently tcld his colleagues. But she's not always a willing competitor, Mr. Ebersole. Restau rant prices may be high, food of ten inferior, and the best eating places jammed with customers— but Mama still likes to eat out. It’s Papa who has made Mama the restaurant’s chief competitor. He’s the one who pays the check and so noticek what a restaurant meal costs, even though he has probably never figured up whar a good dinner at home sets him back. He’s the one who unfavorably compares the restaurant’s cooking with what he gets at home. Mama is too pleased to be eating a meal she hasn’t planned, marketed for and cooked and too busy gloating over the fact that tonight there’ll be no dishwashing to notice that the gravy isn’t up to her standard. And it's Papa who minds the | crowds. Mama is used to crowds, j She even gets a kick out of them, j Sure, the housewife is the res taurant’s real competitor. But not because she wants to be, but, rather, because it’s , such hard work to sell her husband on the idea of taking her out to eat. Ma ma would settle for dinner out almost any night in the week. Just ask her and see how fast she can get her hat on. Some spiders can run on water and if threatened, descend the stems of water plants, carrying with them an a i r bubble which will last tor hours. v CORY COFFEE MAKERS Also A Stock Of Replacement Bowls Lawn Sprinklers — Grass Shears Automatic Toasters Radios And Phonograph Combinations A.
