BARBER SHOP Traffic death victims were add- ed to the ever-growing list as eight persons were killed in Sno- homish County during October, State Patrol Chief Roy A. Betlach said today. "This brings the county's traffic death toll for the year up to which is a decrease of one under last year's figure of 29 deaths," he said. "Of the thirty-nine coun- ties in the state, 19 reported traf- fic deaths during October. "The remaining two months of the year have traditionally been months which have had on an ,aver- age of more than a hundred traffic deaths," he pointed out. "Unless something miraculous haplesS, this average will be exceeded, `for the elements--weather, road and light conditions, become hazardous and lend the factors which contribute to traffic accidents and deaths. "It isn', necessary for a traffic accident to occur," he hastened to state, "and those responsible for traffic safety aren't 'hanging crepe' or manufacturing xcuses. Facts, however, must ,be faced, and unless .those who drive on the state's streets and highways take into con- sideration, and adjust their speed and overall control of the vehicle to meet. these hazardous conditions, then it remains that the only thing that can result from the irrespon- sible individual is for *an ,accident to oecnr. In the first ten months of this year, .the estimated economic loss from traffic accidents in the State of Washington is $77,385,000. "The final two months of 1959, in Snohomish County, indicates that three traffic deaths were re- ported. If the record for Novem- ]r and December 1959 is to be bettered this year, then it is essen- tial that .every person who operates a motor vehicle to void himself of the misbelief that traffic accidents can't happen to him. Of the more than one hundred thousand drivers involved in traffic accidents in 1959, a vast majority are undoubtedly wondering how the traffic accident. occurred. "The sad part of this picture," Betlach said, is that most of the accidents could lave been prevent- ed. A few seconds which the care- less driver might save is soon forgotten if the sacrifice to save time has been a human ,life." GAME NIGHT i I Smith Building 111 W.

This question some- times comes up in a ,theft case and too often the, ownership cannot be established to the satis`faction of the court. Many livestock owners say they have thus lost some cat- tte. In Snohomish County not many livestock owners have registered brands but. they can register a brand and have this prot/ection. A brand on a critter .that is register- ed is the best way of proving own- ership for ,those without, registered cattle. The procedure for getting a egistered is a fairly simple process but the selection may be more difficult. A brand is register- ed through the brand division of the Sate Department of" Agricul- ture in Olympia and they have gegular forms for this purpose. We do have a book in the office with all the present registered brands if you wat to see what is taken. A brand can be a major protection because cattle theft of branded cattle is very minor because thieves kn%w thay are more liable to be -caught. Farm-City Week November 18 to 24 has been set as Farm-City Week to promote bet- ter understanding between garmers and city Feople. This is .the time of year we observe Thanksgiving which is giving thanks for a bounti- ful harvest. Certainly today we are the best fed nation in the world. This has been made possible 'by the working together of `farmers and those in related industries. These related industries tare a combina- tion of most of our society because we are dependent on each other. As ,an example in milk production today .the dairy farmer has ,to de- pond on modern machinery, ferti- lizers, electricity, and a thousand other things in order to produce efficiently. As farmers why n in- vite out ,a city person to get them acquainted with your part in this biggest of 1 projects that of feed- ing our people.
