The Horseman On The Highway
More than ever, in this motorized age, a single
horseman haunts Arizona’s highways. He is the skele
tal rider of the pale horse, Death. More than 220
people have been killed in traffic accidents on Arizona
highways this year, a startling, terrible toll in an
area which used to boast of its safety record.
Traffic officers, state and municipal, have issued
warning after warning to motorists in an effort to
cut down this toll. But the accident rate still mounts.
It will continue to mount until the individual motorist
does something about it—that is, drives carefully.
In a new move to lessen the number of traffic
accidents the Arizona Highway Department, through
its traffic safety division, is issuing to all incoming
cars at state border checking stations, a card carrying
a number of safe driving rules, and asking the drivers
to observe them while in the state.
The rules are based on simple common sense.
Some of them are: (1) Keep to the right; (2) Dont
drive while sleepy; (3) If driving don’t drink; (4)
Obey highway signs and markings; (5) Keep a safe
distance between cars; (6) Slow down during hours
of darkness; (7) Remember most cars have tires that
are old and weak, don’t speed; (8) Don’t park on
paved portion of highway; (9) Dim headlights when
approaching oncoming vehicles. (Arizona Daily Star)

He was a gobbler all right, because
he gobbled up all the vitamin pills,
and they had such an effect on him
that just as I reached the front of
my house he hauled off and busted
me in the kisser with his right foot
and I started to wrestle with him.
He finally got me down and gave
me a kick in my “lead” pants and

“Os Course, /
ft’s Really None of My Business”
If she’s talking about us, the lady is mistaken.
For this company is very much her business.
She may be one of our 000 stockholders right here
in town. Or one of the 0000 others scattered around
the state. We have 00,000 altogether-housewives,
farmers, merchants, doctors —all kinds of folks.
But even if she owns no stock directly, the lady
still has a personal stake in this company . . . for, al
most certainly, some of her bank savings and life
insurance premiums are invested in our securities.
Banks, insurance companies and fraternal organi
zations prefer such securities . . . because sound,
business management has made plentiful, cheap
electric power basic to the American way of life.
So the next time you read or hear anything about •
this company, you can be sure it really is your business.
