It seems to us that this'is the real spirit of the county fair. Where folks good-naturedly bring in their finest for competi- tion and while away the day or week with friendly gossip, And meet old friends they don't very often see. The TIMES- NEWS this week is sending a spe- cial 40-page souvenir edition of the Logan County Fair into every farm home in the county lch we are sure is a true re- flection of the splendid success of the "greatest county fair on earth, t' The special pictorial section of prize winning horses, cattle, hogs, and other interesting views of the fair was all printed by the TIMES- NEWS on its own offset press equipment. A pictorial weekly is a regular feature of the TIMES-NEWS, bringing to it readers pictures of the happenings in the Hfe of this coramunity from week to week. Another section of this big is- sue which was printed on offset press, using newsprint, contains the names of the winners at the fair. t The splendid pictures which were practically all taken by a Ttmes-Ne photographer, We are sure will be a delight to every person who receives this big souvenir edition. And this newspaper would be pleased to have you write in your opinion as to the worthwhileness of this pictorial In order that we might formu- late plans for bringing you a still bigger and more complete pictori- al of next year's fair.

Kearney, noted safety ex- pert, points out in the current is- sue of The- Rotarian magazine. Over 1,000 youngsters have been killed and over 51,000 injured in such accidents in the last three rears, he reports. The fault is not entirely that of :he bicycl'e rider. The fault is largely lack of stress on what Mr. Kearney calls "The three E's"-- Enforcement, Education, nd En- gineering. Few cities and towns, only about 150, have studi.ed the "bike problem" at all, and these have been rewarded by an imme- diate drop in acidents. The third "E", Engineering, is of necessity slow and expensive, but enforcement and education can be readily put into practice. Requiring registration of bicycles is a helpful practice, but only Lf it is used to enforce the laws per- tadning to bicycles and used to re- port infractions of the law aria commonsense. Many towns that require taillights or reflectors for "bikes" ignore the ordinance and permit bicycle riders to pedal after dark with no sort of light to prt tect themselves--or to protect the motorist who csmnot easily see a AY dark object against Safety lanes in sahOO closed that few bicyel mechanicl safety first day of the test lane metz High School in three machines passe& jections were for lack horns.
