WAS-- &OY- TE S By Charles J. Cokten, Congressman Another new idea of the New Deal and the P. W. A., is known as the Public Works of Art Project. This was a plan by which unemployed art- ists who have been suffering greatly from the depression were giv.en work at wages varying from $22.50 ,to $42.50 a week. This supplied them with the ordinary materials and they were asked to produce paintings and murals and sculpture and other works of art for use in public buildings. An exhilpit is now being conducted in the Corcoran Art Gallery in Wash- ington. Alamo other exhibits are being conducted in other centers in the country, including one at Los Ange- les and one at San Francisco. President Roosevelt was given the privilege of selecting some of the paintings on exhibition in the Corcor- an Art Gallery for the White House; and the Number 2. the second on the list chosen by the President was a painting of "San Pedro Harbor", by Paul Starrett. It is a painting of old San Pedro looking north from the Plaza just above the old grain eleva- tor. It portrays the railroad tracks, the box cars and a puffing engine, ships and a tugboat in the Channel, and Terminal Island and Wilmington in the background. Believe me, the Seventeenth District of California is on 'the map all" the way from the White House to the harbor cities. ? ".

The "Straight" is Dangerous Automobile accidents which happen when the direction of travel is straight ahead and when cars skid are more likely to result in serious injur- ies than mishaps which occur u~der other specific directions, according to the Public Safety Divisiotl of the Na- tional Automobile Club. The rate of death per accident when travel was straight ahead was I0 per cent greater than the average for all accidents in 1933. In skidding acci- dents, the rate of death per accident was 32 per cent greater. The probability of an injury proving fatal is not so great in'accidents growing out of left or right turns, backing, parking and slowing down or stopping, because in such circum- stances the element of speed is either non-existent or is much less.
