Killed by Accidents [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Killed by Accidents Accidents kill more people in the Uitcd States in one year than the much-dreaded scourage of cancer, according to a compilation of statistics just completed by the American Red Cress. The toll of r.ccident deaths in 1918, the last year for which figures are now r available, was 83,000,’ the announcement stated. Automobile fatalities have incroas ed tenfold during the last decade, the statement continued. Ninety people out of each million of population were killed by automobiles in 1918 as compared with ten per million annual ly from 1906 to 1910. While slaughter by automobile has thus increased the safety movement in America has appreciably reduced the number of deaths on railroad and trolly tracks. “The control of accident fatilities and injury is one of the outstanding problems in the movement for longer and healthier lives,” says Red Cross statement. “Life-saving and First Aid instruction, which the Red Cross pro vidcs through Chapters scattered throughout the...
We Knew Part of This Story [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
We Knew Part of This Story A clover artist was trying some talkin-machinc recards of his own voice when he noticed his terrier dog cocking his head at the horn of the machine and listening intently. The “human interest” of this incident appealed to the artist who painted a ; ' picture of the machine. This paint-» ing was adopted as a trademark and has since become one of the most* famous trademarks in the world. The artist in question, Frances Bairaud, an Englishman, has now re tired and in consideration of his ser vices in hitting upon this happy thought for the talking machine com pany, has been awarded a pension of.i $2,500 a year. The best ideas as a rule, are basically the simplest. The world thinks in simple terms and its attention arrested by small and understandable things, not by large and complicated ones. A column of words could not explain the story so effectively ae the picture of the little dog liseuing for his master’s voice. It takes a real, keen mind and a good imag...

NOT THE DEADLY AUTO BUT THE DEADLY FOOL [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
NOT THE DEADLY AUTO BUT THE DEADLY FOOL Thirty persons ware “killed in the streets” of Tulsa, Okla., the other day in a riot and negro gunmen, both sides probably con sisting entirely of pretty tough citizens. Nevertheless, the thirty “deaths in the streets” caused an enormous sensation all over the country. But nobody seems to be startled at all over the fact that three times 30 persons are “killed in the streets” of New York every month, on the average, by auto vehicles *lone. The number of fatalities from auto mobile accidents in our cities is increasing all the time. Only a few years ago, the avrage in New York City, for instance, was one a day for the year. Then it crawled up to two a day and now it is three a day. Next year, no doubt, four a day will be kill ed in that city by motor cars, or the appalling number of 1,460 in a year. Our streets are filled with these locomotives, some of them run by boys and girls, and many more of them by reckless people having a mania to get s...
SURVIVED STORM AT SAMOA Major General Lejeune One of the American Sailors Who Came Safely Through Hurricane. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
SURVIVED STORM AT SAMOA Major General Lejeune One of the American Sailors Who Came Safely Through Hurricane. Secretary Edwin Denby of the navy Is a fan on the history of that branch of the service and never misses an opportunity to expatiate on Its glories. He was speaking at a Navy league dinner not long ago and vividly described the events as they occurred when, In 1889, a hurricane caught three of our ships, three German ships and one flying the British flag In the harbor at Apia, Samoa* and sank them all except the Britisher, which managed to get to sea. He told how the American ships were battered to pieces on the rocks, how the Vandalla sank and her crew rode out the storm In the rigging which still protruded from the water. Three seats down the table from Mr. Denby sat Major General John A. Lejeune, commandant of marines. The secretary of the navy did not know at the time that Gen. Lejeune, then a naval cadet, was one of the lads who hung on to the rigging of the Vandalla thr...
The Spring Straw Hat. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
The Spring Straw Hat. All winter long man wears a hat that Is easy and comfortable —a friendly, slouchy, well-worn sort of thing that he can pull down over his ears when the wind blows or throw into the air at a football game. It’s just the sort of clothing a man ought to wear, not tyrannical but companionable. And then along-comes spring. In the spring, say the poets, the spirit of man breaks its bonds. A fellow feels restless and Indomitable, fit for anything and free as the wind. He brooks no restraint, not he. He looks upon his good old cap or hat and decides he ought to buy another. And he does. He goes and gets himself a straw hat —a stiff, uncomfortable, unreliable sort of thing that is faithless to every passing breeze. A man can’t roll It up and put it In his pocket, he can’t throw it Into the air, he can’t pull It down over his ears, he can’t do anything with it except wear It daintily and carefully, until the time comes to smash It In the autumn and go back to the old clo...
Diagnosis. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 17 June 1921
Diagnosis. A party of soldiers stopped some laborers to search their dinner pails for hidden arms. All at once a soldier gave a cry and hurried across to the officer In charge, holding at arm’s length a hard, heavy mass. After due examination the officer pronounced it a suspicious metal which would endanger public safety, and started to question the workman In whose possession it was found. “And you think that’s dynamite, do ye?” asked Pat. “Be jabers, I’ve been puzzlin’ my head over it all day. You see, my old woman calls It cake.”
