The Shelbyville Republican
chairman of the educational committee of the Shelby County Safety Council, spoke
at the Jackson township Farm Bureau meeting at the Mt. Auburn school building
Wednesday, April 29, 1936
Speaks at Meeting of
Jackson Township Farm
The subject of Mr.
Luther's address was "Is There Need for Safety." In his
discussion Mr. Luther used several charts and books of reference with statistics
made on national surveys on accidents occurring in 1935.
Mr. Luther complimented
Jackson township on being the first township in Shelby county asking for safety
information. He stated that if there were one hundred children born in
this town today that seventy-seven of them would be acceptable to
accidents. This percent was determined over a national survey.
Over one hundred persons
attended the meeting. Beside Mr. Luther's safety talk Mr. and
Mrs. Ira Worland showed three motion picture reels, one on a Southern lumber
camp, an airplane view of Washington, D. C., and a fishing trip in Florida.
Mrs. Worland gave a plan
for the summer activities.
