This year, the Bear Lodge boys will tour Yellowstone, poss- ibly as a joint activity with the Newcastle chapter. The group, through chapter funds, pays all the expenses of these trips. The financing of all chapter ac-, tivities is done through dues, tur- key shoots and other events. This year, chapter members have pur- chased a new banner for the chapter and miniatures for the officers' station, donated $10 to-~ ward the high school wrestling mat, partly paid for new jackets and bought degree pins for the members.

As National Future Farmers week draws to a close, the window display at Lee's Pharmacy illus- trates the Bear Lodge chapter's main project of the year. The pro- ject is home beautification, and the display emphasizes the point that living in comfort and with pride and pleasure is important to happiness in any job. The belief behind the display serves to highlight the opening of the FFA creed: "I believe in the future of farming....."

Hulett Red Devils Take 58-33 Beating From Moorcroft Five The Moorcroft Wolves grabbed off their seventh Powder River conference victory at Moorcroft last Saturday night when they clipped the Hulett Red Devils b8- 33. Off to a quick lead, the Wolves never trailed. They led 12-9 at the quarter and pulled away to a 12 point lead at the half. In the aec- ond half, the Moorcroft club con- tinued to pull away holding a 23- point bulge going into the last stanza. High man for the night was Clark of the Wolves who clicked for 21 points. Jones tossed in 15 markers for the Moorcroft team. O. Page and Rush led the Hulett attack with eight points apiece. Devils Tower 4.H Club Holds All.Day Meeting Members of the Devils Tower 4-H club held an all-day meeting Feb. 16 at the home of Jane Page with eight members attendin. Two new members, Dorothy and Janet Wolfe, joined the club. The Devils Tower club hasn't started the year's projects as yet, since the project hasn't arriv- ed. The group spent the afternoon learning the club song and pledge. The club voted to have each mere- ber and leader send ten eent to the National 4-H Foundation. Before the members left for home, Mrs. Page served refresh- ments. The Tower 4-H'ers will meet next on March 15 at the home of Shirley Oudin. Homemakers of Devils Tower Hold Polio Benefit on Feb. 19 The Devils Tower Homemakers met at the home of Mrs. Elise Ford on Feb. 13. Ten members and three guests attended the meeting.

Tile Devils Tower club will meet again on March 12 with Mrs. Deloris Hemenway as hostess. The Tuesday night game in Sun- dance was a different story as the Harvesters whacked .the Gillette Merchants 43-38. A great second quarter in which they held the Merchants to a lone point earned the Harvesters the nod. The Spearfish game opened with fireworks and developed into a racehorse affair. The Harvesters poured in 20 points in the first quarter, but still held only a one point margin. Dudrey accounted for ten of the points from long range. At the half, the Spearfish club had overhauled Sundance as the Harvesters had trouble finding the basket. After a slow third quarter, which saw Spearfish leading by eight points, action took a spurt but the Harvesters were unable to cut down the lead. The absence of Jack Ripley, a Fancy Dan around the basket, hurt the Harvesters. Dudrey, with his long ran.~e bombing, riddled the nets with 34 points and paced the tIarvesters. Spearfish, generaled by Stoller, placed four men in double figure: Moodie with 21, Elges with 19, Koskie with 17 and Evans with 10. The script followed a different twist when the Harvesters tangled with Gillette. Despite the low score, the game was tight and full of action. It was fairly rough, 29 fouls being called. The first period saw Gillette take a 13-9 lead. That was the last time they ever were in front. Dudrey, held to one basket in the opening round, found the range and whipped in five baskets. In the meantime, the Harvesters were playing fine defensive ball and Gillette was held to one point, the un ancE ere le~ iv: the floor at half-time with a 20-14 Sundance crew leaving the at half. me ith a :}-14 edge. DUdrey again led the Harvesters hitting for 18 markers. Floyd Carr chipped in with seven. Downes and Hunter sparked Gillette with nine and eight points each. The Harvesters, fresh from the Gillette kill, have looked around for other conquests and have found one. The victim is schedul- ed to be the Hulett town team. Action will start at 8 p.m. on Sat- urday, Feb. 23, on the Sundance floor. --Safety Program (Continued from First Page) ruing. State Senator A1 Harding of Moorcroft spoke briefly before in- troducing Col. Craig. He pointed out the reason for the Governor's safety program: the skyrocketing toll of highway fatalities in Wy- oming which, in 1951, hit an all- time high. Last year only four other states in the nation had worse traffic records than Wyom- ing. Craig broke the governor's pro- gram into three parts: (1) what is going to be done; (2) who is going to do it, and (3) how is it going to be done. In discussing what was going to be done, Col. Craig said that one of the main aims of the program would be to get people to obey the traffic laws. He pointed out that in the last 11 years 1232 pSr- sons were killed on Wyoming highways with 90%-95% of the ~ccidents the result of traffic law -iotations. Thus, he said, such ac- cidents were preventable and could he prevented if the traffic laws were obeyed. Those who are going to carry out ~he program are the people of Wyoming, Craig said, adding that ,if the people worked hard enough at it, the accident rate would go down. The safety director said that there could be no exceptions to the laws--that every person was as li- fable as the next. tte also expressed the belief that every person con- victed of drunken driving should have his name published in the newspaper with no exceptions. The governor's program is to be carried out largely through a ~ys- tern of education although other factors will operate to aid the pro- gram. To be effective, the safety program must be continuous. The program of education will flow from the state safety board to the county safety committees on to county organizations and then to individuals. In this manner, the information will be widely spread, not just by one organization but by many. Col. Craig said that county or- ganizations should pass resolutions stating that they favor the gover- nor's plan of action and send cop- ies of the resolutions to the state legislature, newspapers and his office. The governor's plan of action calls for needed legislation. The state highway patrol badly needs increasing. Craig stated that the patrol now has only 37 members who must patrol 4500 miles of highway. The Wyoming patrol is the smallest in the nation. As an indication of the inadequacy of the Wyoming patrol, Craig said that reckless or drunken drivers. At N present, they are not required toI do this. [ Other legislation would stiffea the penalty for drunken driving| License suspension for the first M offense would be increased to days and six months for the see'| pl ond offense. A third offense would I al bring an indefinite suspension, ol Sen. Harditwg pointed out at tlae s1 meeting that t o of the major eaus'l iv es of accidents were inattentio t It and willingness to take chanceS,~ Pl To combat accidents, people should t obser.ve highway courtesy and should not drive faster than the i C can see. t k In 1951, the 1,000,000 person tO die by the automobile died in i Cleveland, Ohio. And in 1951 8I 000 more persons were killed the nation's highways than wer0i killed and reported missing ia Korea. One m!llion people suffer" ed in last year s accident, and I00, 000 were crippled and maimed., s~ To teach highway courtesy, all d drivers are asked to join the Woa' P derful Wyoming Highway SafetY. tl Club.
