The Voice of Highway Safety
Notes from Oklahoma Patrolmen’s
Big Brown Books
rsKLAHOMA CITY. Ailg. 7—
vf (Special)— Oklahoma's special
traffic safety campaign during July
was a success, although the actual
figures on traffic fatalities in-
dicate failure, It was said today
by Walter B Johnson, state safety
Johnson declared he was not
offering an alibi to cover up tin*
fact that 45 persons were killed
on the highways of the state dur-
ing the month, as against only 39
traffic fatuities recorded in July
of last year.
"Naturally we are disappointed."
6ald the commissioner, "but we are
not discouraged or disheartened
We arp simply going to redouble
our efforts toward obtaining better
traffic engineering on our high-
ways, better enforcement of nlh
traffic laws, and more widespread
traffic safety education."
* * *
Explaining why he considered
the July campaign a success, even
though the figures Indicated Just
the opposite, the commissioner
pointed out that In a vast majority
of the states more persons are
being killed In traffic smashups
than were lost In 1939.
During the first six months of
1940 Oklahoma had to endure 200
traffic fatuities, while during that

On Dogs Favored
ST. LOUIS. Aug. 7—(U.B— The
dog owner's moan of “Where, oh
where has my little dog gone?"
soon will be as passe as the one-
horse shay if the work of the
National Bureau of Canine Identi-
fication keeps up efforts begun here
early this year.
The bureau, organized by Elmer
Stege. a veterinarian, alms to as-
sure the speedy recovery of lost
animals and the prevention of dis-
putes over ownership. Its motto Is.
“A Number for Every Dog,” and
the number is written on the dog’s
leg with an electric pen and re-
corded by the bureau.
Every dog. pedigreed, lap or Just
plain mongrel, should have a
number to prevent, among other
things theft. Stege said. “After we
get this thing going,” he predicted,
“ a dog's life won’t be so bad."
Records of the bureau are kept
on small cards, as police files are
kept, and the owner’s name, ad-
dress. phone number, the pet’s
name, breed, sex, location of the
marking and the number Itself
are on the card.
The Idea for the bureau came
about through the theft of a hunt-
ing dog owned by Stege’s associ-
ate, A1 Weber. After a year’s search
for the animal produced only
confusion, because Weber was con-
fronted with several dogs similar
to his but was unable to identify
any one of them, the two men
advanced the idea of numbering
The number used is one of a

dozen veterinarians are busy in
the bureau attaching their respec-

Stege scoffs at other methods of

them except his are roolproof.

efficiently because when a nose-
printed dog is lost, every dog of
its description has to be nose-
