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. Mem
bers will all receive special notice.

BARREES TELL OF
VACATION
(Continued from last week)
It proved to be exceptionally in
teresting going through the south—
streamers of moss were hanging
from the trees, the homes and gar
dens were beautiful, the Hibiscus
and Wisteria were in bloom and
some of the southern mansions
were open to the public. In Ala
bama trucks of cotton was being
hauled from the warehouses and
the new crop was just being plant
ed. Our next stoo was at Gaines
ville. Fla., where Mrs. Barkee's sis
ter and husband are now living.
The State University' is located
there. We met a Dr. Good who is
associated with the University.
Last year he taught at Bozeman,
during our conversation we found
him to be a close friend of Dr.
Seifert of Libby. We stopped at
Orlando, which is called The City
Beautiful, then proceeded on
Miami and Carol Gables. The lat
-ter city is advertised as the city
of beautiful homes. Another sister
and relatives live there. We were
there for Palm Sunday. In the
church we attended the children
carried green nalm leaves We also
attended the Miami garden show.
Orchids being a tropical air flower,
there w-as a beautiful display of
many kinds and colors. They had
an artificial water falls with banks
of palms and roses. The beautiful
rose colored Flamingos were walk
ing around this adding color and
life to the display.
A sister of Wm. Kienitz and Mrs.
Wichman lives in Miami and we
called at her home. We took a
great many colored pictures as this
is truly a photographers paradise.
There is a flame vine that grows
on the houses, sometimes covering
a greater part of the roof. Also the
Bouginvilla vine is brilliantly col
ored. The Orange groves were
wonderful to go through; the sweet
scent of the blossoms and the bright
colored fruit on the '»trees. We
visited the beaches, beautiful Hia
leah Face Track Park, the Fare
Bird Farm, and the Tropical Ex
perimental Tree Farm.
On our way north from Miami,
we visited Penny Farms. The Ma- !
rine Studios, where thev have hun
dreds of Ocean fish in huge cement
tanks under as natural conditions
for the fish as possible. There are
three levels to each tank where
vou look through large glass port
holes at the fish and many smaller
displays in small lighted tanks. One
interesting fish was the sea
monae, and we watched them feed
the porpoises.
From there we visited the oldest
city of St. Augustine, where the
Fountain of Youth is located. We
visited also the oldest fort in the
United States and the oldest house;
some streets were so narrow, only
horse drawn surreys could pass
through.
In going to Mississippi, we cross- V
