WOMEN Jo FIGHT FOR REFORMS WIN Pledge Legislature Candi dates on Proposed Slooial and Humanitarian Laws. EASTON. Md., Oct. 16.-Led by Mrs. Clarence Benson Boley. a Re publican candidate for the House of Delegates, and Mrs. William F. Jump, who is active in Democratic politics, the League of Women Voters of Talbot couqty Is showing the way to the electorate of this State in a fight to enact needed social and humanitarian legislation. The league, at its recent meetings, has made it clear that its members will support no candidates of either party who will not pledg, themselves to te proposed legislation. It has adopted a concrete platform on which it is making an energetie cam paign. holding frequent meetings and working in conjunction with the women voters' leagues in other counties. The Platftrm. The following are the bills the league will insist that the candidates for the State Senate and the House of Delegates support: 1. A Children's Code. 2. A State Department of Child Hygiene. 3. Raising the age of consent for girls to eighteen. 4. Equal guardianship of children. 5. Requiring health certificates from persons applying fer marriage licenses. 6. A general political disabilities bill. 7. Amending the reeent Mothers Pension law to make It effective. S. Amending the marriage and di vorre laws. Mrs. Jump has succeeded Mrs. Boley as chairman of the Talbot county league. When Mrs. Boley resigned, following her nomination for the House of Delegates on the Re publican ticket, she said she hoped the members would elect a Democrat to succeed her, as it had been stated that the league was purely a Re publican organization simply from the fact that several of its most active members were of that political affilia tion. .6he stressed the point that the league is non-partisan and must pre serve that complexion. In electing Mrs. Jump, the league chose one of the most active of the Democratic woman of the country. Woman Governer Once.

A three months' study of motor ac dents on Maryland roads has rought to light the interesting dis onure that a vast majority of the sasters that overtake motorists are rcught upon themselves by their wn recklessness, and that 90 per -nt of them are due to speeding, LYS a writer in the September issue Public Roads, publ.shed by the ureau of Public Roads, United States 'partment of Agriculture. "One of the interesting develop ents of the investigation," the jour aL goes on to ay, "is that the largest umber of accidents have occurred at i places that have been considered ife. while the sections which have ten commonly regarded as being ex -emely dangerous are proving to be statively free from accident.." Where le State highway crosses the Blue .idge mountains, in the western part Sthe State, and grades are steep and .jrves sharp, there were but eight ac dents during three months. On the 'ational pike, between Baltimore and rederickc, where there are forty-eight iiles of the straightest road in the tate, the record for the same time towed sixteen accidents, three of hich were fatal. "And yet," says the ublication, "few stretches of high ay in the whole road system are so 'ee of any features which might be msidered as dangerous." On the Baltimore-Washington read. ith all apparent danger spot. re aoved, the record shows that during ie same period there wasn one acci ent for every four miles of road. "There seems to be only one answer Saccount for these hitherto unsus ected conditions," the article says. hat answer is: "Even the less careful motorists rive cautiously in the presence of ecognized dangers, such as steep rades, sharp curves, grade crossings, to., while the absence of such dan erous features gives the driver a ense of security which prompts him ) take a chance and yield to the well igh universal passior9 for speed."
