JACK ENGLAND GIVES SOME DRIVING TIPS DO YOU WANT A HEADSTONE IN '50? DO YOU? Montana's High way Patrol Supervisor E. H. (Jack) England today reminded all motor ists that a good way to become a statistic and a fond memory to the loved ones is to drive like an or dinary driver on the coming week end. a ; "Here are some tips that will help to get you home safely from that holiday trip, if you will fol low them: I I- Start early, but not at the ex pense of sleep, so that you can drive at a reasonable rate of speed and still arrive at your destination on time. 2. Be sure your car is in good working order, particularly with gard to lights, brakes, tires, wind shield wipers, etc. 3. If you should stop for an emer gency, pull as far to the right side of the road as possible, and do not the passengers in-tV car stand around in the traffic lanes. H your stop is not an emergency, get com pletely off the traveled surface. ■LvUse the regular hand signals to indicate changes in speed or direction, and give them well enough in advance that the car following may take the necessary action to avoid a crash. 5. Get in rhythm with the gen eral flow of traffic. If other cars are going at 45 or 50 miles per hour, you should drive at that rate of speed also. You get into trouble when you get out of step with the other traffic. re 6. Know and obey all road signs: Round signs mean that you will cross a railroad track or two with in 300 feet; Oblong signs indicate traffic regulations such as speed limits, no passing zones, etc; Dia mond shaped signs are the sign that you should slow down, because there'll be a curve or hill or other dangerous condition in a matter of a few seconds; Eight sides or octa gonal sigos mean that you should come to a full and complete stop before crossing or entering the street or road ahead; the Crossbuck and Treasurer, Eleanor Huffman. The club is organized with twenty-one charter members and is the 27th club in the state to be organized. As soon as a charter is granted by the Federation a special charter meeting will be held.
