Cd-operation of teachers in molding public opinion to the attainment of the intent of the constitution, -and in view every con troversy by the same rules of Jus tice, was urged before the Iowa State Teachers association here Friday by .Tii dee Florence Allen, first woman supreme court justice in Ohio. "As I look into history," Judge Allen said, "I find that the frame work of our govern ment was achieved for one rea son mainly, and that was that the man of training and talent of that day co-operated in the building of government. "They did not deem it be neath themselves to fill what are sometimes held to be small offi cial positions with small sal aries." We have slipped back from the old conception, to demand the same stan dard of integrity in public life as in our individual relationships, she said. We have slipped hack from the old conception that every branch of our governmental life is to be Handled for the interest solely of the people who constitute the state, she con cluded.

Ministerial Association , Holds Meeting Session at Louisville Attended by a Number of the Clergymen of the County. The ministers of the Cass County Ministerial Association assembled for their regular meeting in the Meth odist Episcopal church at Louisville, Neb., Monday, Nov. 4th at 10:30 a. m. On account of the absence of Rev. C. Lewien, the chairman. Rev. H. E. Sortor kindly asked Rev. O. Wichmann, pastor, of the Evangel ical Synod church of Plattsmouth, to take charge of the devotional service. Rev. H. G. McClusky, thereafter, read a well prepared essay on the theme, entitled, "The Supreme Ser vice of a Church to a Community." This essay was replete with deep, careful thought, interest and instruc tion. The three main divisions of the paper were: 1. The Church Politi cal; 2. The Church Physical; 3. The Church Spiritual. A very profitable general discus sion followed the reading of the essay in which the various pastors par ticipated. This discussion proved to be a great inspiration and blessing to all concerned. At 12:15 p. m light refreshments were served and an nour was spent in muiuai, ira- ternal fellowshiD which was Im mensely enjoyed by all. The next meeting will be held the second Tuesday in December in the M. E. church at Weeping "Water Rev. O. G. Wichmann was delegated to write an essay on the theme, "The Relieious Contribution Which the German People Have Made to Amer ica. SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY "The safety movement today is essentially spiritual rather than ma terial," said Albert Whitney. Acting General Manager of the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Un derwriters, in a recent address "Mechanical guarding is only an evi dence of something more fundamen tal, namely, a changed attitude of mind." Industrial safety, according to earl ier conceptions, was considered . ex trinsic, something that could be ap plied from without. It was regarded as being detached from the funda mentals of the production process. It was even the general opinion that safety measures would retard the speed of industry and make it less efficient. Now a safety ideal, based on a new philasophy, has become evident. The day of the short-sighted industrialist. scoffing at safety as being impracti cal, is over. It is generally realized that safety is an integral part of in dustrial efficiency and economy. No modern executive can afford not to take the steps that will make his place of business as safe as possible. We are a long way from perfec tion in the safety movement. But knowledge is spreading; the great factory of today is a marvel of safety compared to the factories of the past. The bond between safety and efficiency and good business cannot be severed.

Warns Against Speed on Arter ial Streets Supreme Court States That Drivers Have No Special Right-of-Way Privilege. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 6. An opinion today by the Nebraska supreme court hinged upon an appeal by William S. McCulley, Omaha, a minor, from an adverse Judgment in Douglas county district court in his 40 thou sand dollar claim for personal in juries against Andrew Anderson, re versed the lower court ruling and prescribes serveral rules relative to the rights of motorists on arterial highways. The case was woven around a crash at Forty-second and Leaven worth Btreets, in which the claimant was alleged to have been permanent ly injured when tossed from his motorcycle by Anderson's machine. The court held that the motorist crossing an intersection, having stop ped at the arterial highway and hav ing looked both directions before en tering that highway, had a right in crossing to presume that motorists on the through street shall exercise care, "and if necessary to prevent a col lision, slacken their speed." The court also held that the as sumption of the driver on an arterial highway that another motorist on a cross street will come to a stop be fore entering the intersection, does not permit the former to exceed the speed limit or to disregard other traf fic regulations. No rules providing arterial high ways, grant drivers on those high ways, grant drivers on those high ways any exclusive privileges, nor require those crossing it to do so at their peril regardless of the duty of motorists on all highways to obey traffic regulations and to exercise due care, the court added.
