Traffic accident statistics are cold, cruel numerical
facts. Seldom are they cheerful; invariably they are fright
ening and apalling. And always they are hard to change.
But sometimes we cheat those long rows of figures
and percentages and come out on top. One of these infre
quent times has been brought to our attention by Mr. Ray
Osborn, director of public safety in the city of Lincoln.
"When a town can reverse the national average," says
Mr. Osborn, "especially with the number of students we
have, I consider that a fine record. I am very happy that
people can t always say it is
We agree with Mr. Osborn this is an outstanding
record for the students at the University. Statistics always
have shown in the past that drivers in the age group 16 to
25 are involved in a high comparative percentage of acci
dents. The presence of the University in Lancaster county
and the large increase of 16 to 25 year old drivers from it,
would tend to swing the balance towards more traffic ac
cidents. It speaks very well for all Nebraska students that
this is not the case.
The relentless fight to prevent fatal accidents should
not diminish, however, even though statistics are now in
our favor. Excessive speed, extreme carelessness and the
indulgence in alcoholic beverages while driving can quickly
fill the debit side of the ledger unless there is a concen
trated effort by all to prevent accidents.
Statistics are hard to change. But they can be through
the consciousness of the student body that it has been,
and could be responsible for a greater number of accidents.
Student drivers who bear this fact in mind and who prac
tice the simple safety rules will keep themselves and their
friends out of the statistic columns.
To The Student Body:
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the various organ
izations and individuals that made this year's Card Section a success.
The Cobs and Tassels for their hard work on those cold Saturday
mornings, Mr. Don Lentz for his words of wisdom and able counsel
ing, and Mr. Lewandowski and "Potsy" Clark for their wonderful
cooperation. Also to each one of the 1,386 students that form the
card section I would like to say "thank you", for without your co
operation the Card Section could not exist.
