At the close of the feature, Commander G. W. Warren, USN, officer in charge of the station, was seen, and heard to pay an exceptionally fine tribute to the Arlington community for its co-operation and hospitable atti'tude toward the station and its person- nel. Commander Warren described the community as friendly and progressive. O MARKED CROSSWALKS It has been noticed that in most sections of the coun- try, where there is tremendous traffic, certain practices have developed fhat seem to be working well in regard to crosswalks, where it has been impractical to install traf- fic lights. Such crosswalks are marked by "ladder" striping. Pedestrians have 'the right-of-way, and when such walks are occupied, vehicular traffic must stop. Because there is no light=, the pedestrian must use Gov. Langlie the morning re- port showed a loss of 16 lives from the first through the fourth• I discussed this alarming toll with our traf- fic people, who reported that the full patrol enforcement strength was exerting every effort to curb the violations which were caus- ing the accidents• We discussed the problem confronting us. with about 1,500,000 licensed drivers in our State using the State highways, and only 265 commis- sioned officers on the force to patrol the 6,515 miles of roads in our State highway system. Twelve days elapsed--and 15 more persons died intraffic col- lisions. Then, on the morning of the 19th, the report on my desk showed that in the previous two days 4 more people were killed• * * $ IN SPITE of the efforts of the State Patrol and the local traffic enforcement officers, the unnec- essary destruction of life and property on our highways was rushing headlong into an ugly situation. What emphasized the seriousness was the fact that we were entering the most hazardous traffic period of the year, when shorter daylight hours, fog, sleet, rain, snow and slush increase the normal hazards of driving• vigilance before crossing, but once embarked he has the right-of-way, and should a pedestrian be struck, the ve- hicle driver is automatically responsible. It nfight seem, at first thought, a risky business for During November and Decem- ber of 1952, 134 persons were the pedestrian, but experience in busy cities, reveals that killed in traffic accidents• And the system ,- orks quite satisfactorily. . now we already had 35 deaths the first 18 days of October.

Arlington has no special fire alarnl system, and is de- pendent upon the cooperation of the telephone company in the sounding of the fire alarm, co-operation that has 25• These changes include plac- ing producers on base 12 months of the year, decreasing the loca- tion adjustment applicable on Class I milk and producer base milk at Skagit County plants from 40 cents to 20 cents per cwt., making permanent a modifies. tion of the provisions under which milk is moved between plants, reducing the Class I but- terfat differential, and revising the method of computing the vol- ume of condensed skim milk or non-fat dry milk solids utilized in Class I products. The assist- ant administrator has denied re- quests to make cooperatives han- dlers, to enlarge the marketing area by the addition of Kitsap and Mason counties, to allow limited transfers of base with the sale of a herd, to use price esti- mates as the basis of settlement with producers, and to eliminate for plants located in Thurston County a 25 cent charge on pro- ducer milk used for certain Class II products• On September 14, 1953, a de- cision was issued on one of the proposals made at the August hearing• This proposal requested changes in the method of classi- fying transfers of milk to plants which have facilities used for the receiving and processing of other source milk. T h i s decision changed the transfer provisions for a period ending December 31, 1953. Copies of the full text of this recommended decision and of Order No. 25, as amended, are available at the market admin- istrator's office, 200 Bigelow Bldg•, Seattle, Wash.
