One of the foremost subjects for country-wide and consideration is our terrifying death and accident rate. Engineers, and govenment officials from city, state, and national government are directing unusual energies towards a partial solution of the problem. Without safety, the most important things in life are impossible to achieve and safe living is the keystone of our personal and national well-being. Accidents destroy economic security. Millions suffer privation and want when the bread-winners of the family are injured or when family sayings are used up in caring for injured children. Our national economic loss from accidents amounts to billions of dollars annually. Property is destroyed, productive power is ourtrailed, and useful lives are prematurely snuffed out. Security, efficiency, prosperity, and happiness must not be sacrificed through carelessness or neglect.
