Death Overshadows Drivers
During Leisurely Weekends
By CYNTHIA HENDERSON
A recent study by insurance
companies in the days of the
occurance of traffic accidents
illustrates one of the ironies of
life in America.
Most of us think of weekends
as a time for rest and pleasure.
We go for a drive in the coun
try, play a game of tennis or
golf, visit with our friends, re
lax at the swimming club and
in the evening perhaps there
will be a dance or a movie. But
it is also a time of climactic
violence on our roads. More
than 15,000 persons were killed
and nearly 750,000 hurt in
weekend accidents last year.
Forty per cent of the death and
36 per cent of the injuries were
recorded on Saturdays and Sun
days in 1952.
The ' most dangerous day of
the week was Saturday, partly
because more cars are in use
- Saturday than on any week day.
Saturday night for too many
people is a time when drinking
and driving get together. No
one knows exactly how many
traffic accidents are caused by
drinking drivers, but everyone
knows it is a major problem.
Every one needs to know that

Our Campaign For Safety
By DON PIEPER
There have been a lot of folks with a lot of bad words for your
Daily Nebraskan's safety campaign. I haven't heard anyone say
that safety shouldn't be emphasized the problem seems to be the
form of emphasis.
Our campaign has five main forms:
1. A safety pledge we run the pledge every day and ask that
it be signed and returned to our offices in the basement of the
Union. ...... - . , ... .
2. Traffic violations each day we run the names of every stu
dent or faculty member found guilty of a traffic violation in the
Lincoln municipal court.
3. Accident pictures every so often we run a picture of a bad
accident hoping that the reader may better grasp the significance
of safety by seeing what has happened to others.
4. Articles when we find a good source, we publish interviews
with important men in accident prevention work.
5. Banner headlines every day we run a safety slogan as a
banner headline across the bottom of the paper.
We're not kidding ourselves about this campaign we don't
expect miracles. We don't even expect to be able to point to any
tangible results at the end of the campaign. But that doesn't mear.
that there will be no results.
The result we want is safety-consciousness.
We do not run the pledges or any of the other ideas in the
campaign because we think that they are an end in themselves
We are not so naive that we promise protection from accidents to
those who sign our pledge. The only purpose is to get individuals
to think about safety because the only way to increase Safety is
through Individual thought.
Every person who signs the pledge is thinking about safety
even if only for that little while. Every person who refuses to sign
is thinking about safety. Every joke that is made about the pledge,
the campaign or The Nebraskan because we are running the pledge
and sponsoring the campaign is helping make this campus safety-
We don't think that the pledge is a waste of space if it is
signed. But if the student body is going to ignore the pledge, and
statistics certainly seem to indicate that it is being ignored, then we
are making a mistake by running it. There are no trick phrases ir
the pledge. We are not trying to get you to promise anything that
you wouldn't do normally without a pledge. We are merely asking
that you think in terms of safety during 1953.
There are plenty of pledges available. One is printed In every
issue of the paper and we have pads down at the office.
Every organization on the campus ought to get behind this drive
and emphasize safety. With modern transportation facilities, it jusl
isn't any Joke. I would like to set Builders, AUF, Red Cross, Tas
sels, Corn Cobs, Coed Counselors, AWS, IFC, Pan-Hel, N Club,
BABW, the professional societies, the honoraries, every organiza
tion on campus get back of this drive and push safety.
A letterip last week called the drive trite. If it's trite to try to
save lives, tnen were guilty. Ana, lurmermore, we want every
group on this campus to be guilty too.
There is no reason why students, who form one of the most
dangerous groups of drivers, should laugh at safety.
What can you do?
It shouldn't be too child-like to invite a Stale Safety Patrolman,
a Lincoln police officer, a Judge or any other qualified person tc
talk to your group on the mechanics of safety. The Nebraskan
safety pledge could be distributed in meetings. Posters could be
painted and distributed. But, most important, you could discuss
the subject and think of your own projects.
And while you're thinking, work on some ideas for The Daily
Nebraskan. As I said, the main objections seem to be with the
forms The Nebraskan uses to emphasize safety. Think up some
new ones. We are willing to consider any new ideas. What we
want Is a safety-conscious campus, if our methods aren't doing the
job we want to know the methods which will.
We don't mind criticism, but what we really want is construc
The campaign was started because one of our fellow students
was killed and another seriously injured in a highway accident
During the campaign, a student accidentally struck a 75-year-oid
man seriously injuring him. We are not fighting with windmills,
