Page Eight THE MONROE MONITOR -- Monroe, Washington Friday, September 2, 1927. WILLIAMS DRUG STORE BAWLED OUT[ ONE day last spring we heard a CERTAIN citizen of this COMMUNITY whom you all KNOW, calling down another MAN whom you all know for DRIVING too fast past the MONROE Grammar School, AND we wonder how many of THE rest of us ought to be CALLED DOWN for the same OFFENSE. Whenwostop TO REALIZE that there are SEVERAl., HUNDRED CHILDREN attending our PUBLIC SCHOOLS and that THEY are not as good JUDGES of the speed of a car AS we grownups, then it BECOMES oar duty not to SAIL by without thinking but to DRIVE SLOWLY and be READY for anyEMERGENCY s $ $ P.S.---School is opening in a few dayl.

One in- dication of this con- sideration is Buick's new steering column, which may be adjust- ed to the most com- fortable position -for women, as well as men. Buick for 1928 pleases women because it is easier to drivembecause it is more comfortable to ride in--because it is the style-leader among motor cars. That's why you see so many Buicks at fashionable gatherings, and on the smartest boulevards.

Wthin the next ten days schools in all sections of Washington will be open for the current educational sea- son bringing additional highway hazards as youngsters, on their way to classes, crowd roads and streets, according to the Automobile Club of Washington which supplements its usual accident warning with a plea for particular attention on tiae part of motorists to practice every care for protecting 'young America." Although children may be taught to watch out for themselves, it es- pecially behooves automobile drivers to watch out for the youngsters, the automobile club points out. Many of these tots will be attending school for the first time and are too young to appreciate the significance of the word "danger" when applied to traf- fic. In larger cities of the state, special efforts are being undertaken by police officials to protect children at street intersections, the automobile club has learned. However, such systems are not practical n rural districts and the danger, accordingly, is increased. "Every. persons who drives a motor car assumes responsibility for pro- tecting others," according to Douglas A. Shelor, manager of the Automo- bile Club of Washington. "It is true that on highways, autom@iles have the right of way but that part of the law tas little meaning to a group of school children. "Particular efforts have been made by the automobile club to adequately designate approaches to schools and these warning signs should receive very marked respect from everyone who utilizes the highways." Times of greatest danger have been determined by the automobile club to exist just before school starts in the morning, during the lunch hour immediately following the closing bell and during recess periods. DODE BERCOT COMING BACK Dode Bercot who for the past year has been on the retired list of prize fighters is coming Back strung. Dode won his last three fights by the knock out route; he is matched to fight Ace Hadkins in Portland, Oregon next Tuesday night, September 6. If Dode gets a draw with this fgbter he will be the head liner on the next Seattle boxing card. COUNTY ASSESSOR LEE SUGGESTS N:EW METHOD OF AUTO ASSESSING (continued from page one) lars each year. Most of the work is finished and we need not this rush- and scramble like we have in the past, as by the time we have another fifty million dollars spent (if honestly cone) we will see a tremendous iTn- provement even o,ver the present won- per cent, state general 10 per cent, total for the state 40 per cent, county general road and bridge fund, 20 per cent, county general school 20 per cent, county current expense 15 per cent, and cities of the first class 5 per cent. Total 100 per cent. This is a fair division and the state should not have more from this fund as they will in addition receive the entire benefit from gasoline sales. Do not hoard too much money in one place, as we have the example of this evil derful line of roads we now have. I at Olympia, the distasteful concatena- believe that hereafter we should di- lion, the enormous amount of money vide the income from this source, and I gathered there in one pile may have by simplifying it about as outlined,] its influence for better or worse, but we would be vastly benefited, and the why the temptation? uivision should be about as follows: It is up to the people, to you and The state highway fund to receive 301 all the rest to say: Why be asleep on this, so important feature? If you want it then good and well, say so and it is yours for the voting for it. Some will say, oh, well, it i not con- stitutional anyway, and that man is "off." Did you stop to think and notice how much is done in other lines not constitutional? Taxing the cars we now do is in many cases not con- stitutional, and ff broken in one line (if it is for the good of all) why not attempt it along this line.. At any rate this is put up to you to think about, and you no doubt can better this idea a whole lot, and that is what we are after.
