[Photograph 2012.201.B0052.0467]

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Death won't take a holiday TODAY. While children play, while grownups enjoy the work-less day, death will continue taking its toll. Safety first is the weapon that is most effective against this dread enemy. America has materially reduced its Fourth of July sacrifice to death as far as fireworks fatalities, drowning and other accidents are concerned, but not in the number of automobile deaths. Last year, automobiles claimed 69 lives in the nation on Independence day---fireworks only one. The percentage of automobile deaths was even greater during the preceding years. In 1933 there were 82 traffic deaths; 1932 had 117 and 1931 had 161. What about the 1935 Independence day sacrifice?"

Description: Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "With love you tended us when we were babes; You clapped your hands at our first mirthless smiles. Our cooling "Da-da" tapped your boundless praise--With swelling chest you boasted of our wiles, You though our love sufficient for the pain Of worried hours in which you walked the floor. And prayed that we be spared when we were ill. You sang aloud when we were well once more."
