of the 1,320,000 persons injured in 1940, infants totaled 47,520; children, 183,480; youths and grown-ups, 1,025,640; old people, 63,360.

of the 36.580 auto drivers in fatal accidents, 2,710 were females; of the 1,374,400 drivers in nonfatalities, 133,320 were females.

In fatal accidents, 3 per cent of the drivers were under 18 yrs., 27 per cent were aged 18-24; 3.5 per cent were 65 or over: 8 per cent had less than 3 mos. experience: 85.8 per cent of the fatal accidents occurred in clear weather, and in 77.7 per cent of the cases the road was dry; in 91.3 per cent the car was apparently in good condition.

Early morning and early evening (twilight) drivers got relatively the most victims.

Speed and its relation to cost-Speed is expensive, according to the insurance experts. "Take the average speed of 35 miles per hour," says one in the booklet Lest We Regret. "If you increase that average to 45, you will save a little over six hours in every thousand miles you drive. But it will cost you 65c for each hour you save. If you jump to 55, the difference in expense would be $1.20 an hour. About $12.45 a month for the average driver!

"It is also curious to note that these costs pile up at increased speeds somewhat after the startling fashion of Danger Units. After passing 45, for instance, you will save less and less time by increasing your speed: yet the expense soars. On a 1,000-mile journey you could save but 2.8 hours by stepping up your speed from 55 to 65, and you would pay almost $3.00 an hour for the time you saved.**

76,600,674 Gross tonnage applies to vessels and not to cargoes, and is determined by dividing by 100 the contents, in cubic feet, of the vessel's closed-in space.

Net tonnage is a vessel's gross tonnage minus deductions of space occupied by the crew's quarters. machinery for navigation, the engine room, storeroom and fuel.

The number of entrances practically balances the number of clearances, so that one-half of the total figures approximates either the entrances or the clearances.
