C. M Anderson, Regional Supervisor of Safety, announced today that the roads of the South were well advanced in their preparations for participating in the drive, with full determination to stand at the top of the list of safe railroads when the record is made up. Experience has proved that the majority of railroad accidents are avoidable; that a large part of the enormous toll of killed and injured reported every year is due not to the unavoidable catastrophes which attract public attention, but to the little lapses from caution which deaths or injuries here and there every day in the year. Education and con stant training reduces the number of lapses, big and little, and the preaching of "safety" during the past few years has saved many a life and limb. It was to demonstrate practically what can be done that the Director General of Railroads approved the country-wide campaign about to be launched. Similar drives have been condutced previously in the different regions, resulting in convincing and gratifying demonstra tions. The general drive will be directed by A. F. Duffy, manager of the safety section, division of operations, from Washington, while Mr. An derson, with headquarters at Atlanta, will conduct the Southern Region's campaign One ot the first steps toward preparing railroad employees of the South for the part they are to play will he the posting of an October calender with the dates 18th and 31st in red in all stations, offices, tool houses, shops cabooses and other places where they will attract at tention. Industries along railroad lines will be asked to co-operate, es pecially in the way of removing unnecessary hazards and warning their own employees of the danger ever present in railroad tracks. Owners and drivers of automobiles also are to be called upon to help. Just be fore the drive begins, cards will be distributed among all who An be reached, urging them to be particularly careful in approaching grade crossings. In fact, the aid of the public generally is wanted, because, while the record will be made as to raidroad employees only, the plan involves an intersified drive to stop eccidents of any character on or a bout railroad property.

On top of this comes the building of Lock and Dam No. 45 at Addison, which will cost about two million dollars. Activitiesin real estate are now growing rapidly and since the previous report their have been sev eral new deals in the last week, which are as follows: Ernest Dejarnette to to B. F.

Of There is more than seven million Baptist in the United States, accord ing to statistics complied by the Bap tist 75 Million Campaign, including these of all types and colors. Of this number, 4,285,41 are in white Mis sionary Baptist churches. The income of these white Baptist families is $3,000,000,000 a year, it has been estimated, and if only ten per cent of (this income were given to the service of God it would produce a sum of $300,000,000, or four times what is being sought for five years J in the present campaign. And if only fifty-seven per cent of this $300,000,000 were given to mis sions, this being the percentage of proceeds of the 75 Million Campaign that will be devoted to missions this would make available for mis sions alone the sum of $17 1,000,000 a year, or enough money to provide MR.

BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT. Mr. and Mrs. Prank C. English, of this city, are receiving congratula tions on the arrival of a son, Monday. October IS, Lilian! Franklin English, IF LEAGUE BREAKS PREPARE TO FIGHT" Hoover Says Treaties Can't Stand With out It Reactionary Group in Ger many Gaining in Strength. Palo Alto. Oct "If the League of Nations is to break down, we must at once prepare to fight." Herbert Hoover, formerly Economic Director for the Supreme War Council, told the students of Stanford University in an address he delivered here to night. "The Peace Treaties," he said, "cannot be carried out without the League. If the league fails the trea ties also fall. If the balance of pow er is to supplant the League of Na tions, we will have torn asunder the only hope that Europe will not break into further wars of races, classes and combinations that will take civil ization back to the Middle Ages. "I am confident that if we attempt to revise the treaty we shall tread a road through European chaos. It we manage to keep our soldiers out of it we will not escape fearful economic loS.SC! "The Allies may themselves revise this treaty without us and then as semble a council of Nations of their own in an endeavor to solve the prob lems of Europe. It would be a coun cil of Europe and in the midst of these terrible times, considering the debt they owe us, the material they must have from us or starve, I would rather that we be represented t lit-1 cm, less it become a league of Europe against the Western Hemi sphere. A peace without us means more Army and Navy for us, the" old treadmill of taxes and dangers for us." MRS. GEO. FETTER KILLED BY CAR Run Over on Fourth Ave. Well Known Here. Formerly Liv ed At Addison. Run down by a Fourth-street car and both feet severed, Mrs. George G. Fetter, Sr., died twenty minutes after the accident this morning at the City Hospital. Mrs. Fetter was crossing from the west to the east side of ther street in front of the Mary Anderson Theater. She had crossed the south-bound tracks and stepped directly in the path of north-bound car No. 10787 in charge of Motorman C. D. Karsner and Conductor R. S. Keith. "She ran in front of the car when I was too close to stop it," said Kars ner, who is an experienced Louisville motorman. "The front trucks had run over her ankles and both her feet were mashed off before I could stop the car. Her body fell over on the south-bound track." Picked Up Unconscious. Mrs. Fetter was unconcious when picked up immediately af'.er the ac cident. She did not regain conscious ness. The Fifth district auto police patrol was passing at the time and the dying woman was taken to the City Hospital in this conveyance She reached the hospital within ten min utes after the accident and died ten minutes after reaching the hospital. The accident occurred at 10:15 o' clock and her death came at 10:35. Mr Fetter, who was at his office, at first took his name, in accordance with an agreement with the railway company, which has pledged respon sibility in such matters. Karsner was a Fourth-street motorman for six or seven years, it was said at the Fourth street barn after the accident. He left Louisville two years ago, but return ed at the company's request during the strike and took up his old work. Karsner told the poliece that he considered the accident Mrs. Fetter's fault because there were no automo biles parked in front of the Mary Anderson Theater, in accordance with the ordinance against it, and conse quently he said, there was nothing to obstruct her view. Mrs. Fetter was identified after the accident by her card in her purse, which had the address, 1718 South Third street. Some confusion, how ever, resulted mistook the name for "Letter" and because it was not gen erally known that the Fetters had moved in from Pewee Valley, where they have a summer home. Mrs. Fet ter had only returned to Louisville, yesterday and had not had time to have her furniture unpacked. Louis ville Times, Oct. 11. VISITING HIS MOTHER. William Lindsey, of the United States Marine Hospital, of Louisville, is visiting his mother, at McQuady. Mr. Lindsey was gassed and has not fully recovered from the effects. He will go from McQuady to Rockport, Ind., to visit his wife, Mrs. Lindsey, from there to Ashville. South Carol ina, for treatment in the Marine hos pital there. Desperation of Europe. Mr. Hoover said that few people seem to realize the desperation to which Europe has been reduced. "During the coming winter some of them will look with longing eyes to this rich, fat Nation, with its surplus of every human necessity," he said. "We cannot fiddle while Rome burns. If we believe we can see our neigh bors return to another 30 years' war through the break down of this treaty, and we still maintain our progress, it is the egotism of insanity. Our ex pansion overseas has entangled us for good or ill, and 1 stand for an honest attempt to join with Europe's better spirits to prevent these entangle ments from involving us in war. We are not dealing with perfection, we are dealing with the lesser evils. I "For us to refuse to enter into a joint attempt with the well-thinking sections of a large part of the world t establish a continuing moral con lcttK against war is the utmost folly in our own interests." Pointing out the likelihood that some European Nations will again be plunged into war with their neigh bors, Mr Hoover referred to a pro bability of the invasion of Poland if the treaty failed "There are many elements in Eu rope," he said, "who wish to see the treaty break down and the League of Nations disappear During the last (Continued on Page )
