PAGE TEN THE CATALINA TRIALS OF THE TRAFFIC COURT (Continued From Page 1, Column 1) uous kind of nerve-wraeking work in this court every daY. "If it hadn't been that I discovered ] could do something really construc- tive in administering the affairs of this court, and hence had set a goal looking toward a comprehensive sys- tem of traffic education, 1 would pro- bably bare called for relief from my arduous duties some weeks ago. "But now l am beginning to really enjoy-some phases of my work here. I can see something worth-while can be accomlflished by bringing home to traffic violators the seriousness of their offenses, and the dire necessity of their conforming to the rules of this nmch-nmddled game of motoring on the public highways, in order that life and limb may be spared. "The first step in our educational campaign here has been to start a Traffic School which meets every ~londay afternoon. Where the evi- dence shows the defendant has any sort of reasonable alibi, we assign him to the Traffic School, issue to him a text-book containing all of the motor vehicle laws, and order him to attend class the following Monday, lwepared for a traffic examination. "We put the class on a real school basis, illustrate our problems on a blackboard, and permit free discussion of all questions by the 'pupils.' "For reckless drivers and confirlned speeders, we have a special course which includes a tour through the morgue to show them the fatal re- sults of too much haste and too fre- quent carelessness. "In addition, we are launching a campaign advocating that traffic in- struction be included in the curricu- Iron of public schools wherever the majority of the pupils are 16 years of ate or o\~er. "We are also broadcasting requests to lmblications all over the county to help us in spreading the gospel of safe and sane driving, by bringing home to their readers the fatal re- sults ahnost inevitable from continued violation of traffic laws. "Jail sentences and fines have to be used in extreme cases, but prevention is the medicine that will effect a per- manent cure, and we hope to admin- ister frequent doses, through a per- sistent campaign of education, backed up by the ever-present warning that i reasonable leniency and a spirit of helpfulness on our part does not get results within a reasonable lem!th of time, we will be forced to again re- sort to the more drastic practice of 'jail drives.' Under that schedule we sentence violators to one to fix e days in jail, even for so-called minor vi> lations instead of assessing fines. "Let us sincerely cooperate to make this last alternative unnecessary." THE CATALINA ISLANDER CRAWFISH CHARLEY SAYS: (Continued from Page 1, Column 4) gans of the body.
