RIGHT OP WAY VARIES
MISUNDERSTANDING o f
■*" simple driving pules by
numerous motorists is oue fac-
tor which j'laifs Texas right at
thf top in number of traffic
deaths. Possibly the most mystifying
o/ all traffic rules to the ar&rage
driver an those relating to "right
#f way" at an intersection.
In trying to understand the laws
retculatinif intersecting traffic, it
1* '-est to start off with tlie prenil.se
time all streets are of eyanl dig
nity. legally speaking. Traffic signs
uii-i signals may vary this rule some-
wlinr. but when in doubt It is safest
ft'- .icsuruo that nil drivers crossing
y tir path have a claim to tUe right
or' equal to your own.
i tbrionsly. however, in many
gs- s one driver or the other '.vlll
be legally entitled to the right of
way. When it becomes necessary to
<t»'f'*rmine right of way in a particu-
lar situation, the driver who reach-
the intersection first, or who Is
f 'inir to get there first, is ordinar-
But when two automobiles are

*omg intersections are known as
•courtesy comers," having a stop
Sign or a flashing red signal facing
*aili direction of approach. The
flr*r drirei reaching the eormar cad
AMiilng to a complete stop will nor-
mdly have the right of way over
tther vehicles not already in the
Iniersectlon. However, don't depend
fchi much on the other fellow's cour-
tly, and be f?ure to keep a "'proper

At intersections Involving one
through street aud another street
having a stop sign, a driver ap-
proaching the stop sign and coming
to a full stop Is ordinarily said to
bate the right of way over vehicles
approaching on the through street
bur not already In the intersection.
However, this last rule must be
<1: tlifted by saying that you should
a<" proceed, fro** or turn onto the
tin..ugh street until you can do so
without interfering with oncoming
traffic. In other words, if an ap-
proaching car will arrive within the
Intersection before yon are com-
pletely clear, wait Just a little long-
er The same rules apply to enter-
liu a highway from a side road
eoiitaining s stop sign.
Many driven violate the rules
of i ight of way covering left hand
turns at Intersections. When turn-
In^ left, you should always be on
•lie inside (or center) lane, dis-
playing the proper hand signal. You
Oj;"t allow all cars coming from the
•pposite direction, already in the
Intersection, to pass through before
ftompletinf your turn. Even when
p** intersection Is cleared, do not
proceed unless other oncoming traf-
fic is far enough away to be able
to see your sigusl aud alow dowe
to allow you to turn with safety to
Stay in the inside lane until your
left hand turn is entirely complet-
ed. aud only then move fraduslly
over to the right-hand lane if
you wish. When turning right, stay
in the right-baud laue at all times.

A Pain in the Neck
UE gives ine a pain in tlie

warning that something U wroa*
The Iwre causes yon pain because,
in pretending an interest you don't
h»v», you tense your ohoaldor sad
neck muscles forcing yourself to
pay attention to htm. Perhaps you
can't run away, but at Least you
can shift position and try to re-

Is a danger signal from your nerr-

Injury, Infection, or an emotional
I'ain can help your doctor find
out what is the matter with you.
He wants to know where the pain
Is most Intense, where It spreads,
whether It Is constant or oa and
off, what seems to stop It, and fi-
nally what It feels like. The last
question Is the hardest to answer.
Two people will describe the same
pain very differently.
The doctor can put the answers
to these questions together with
his other observations and make a
diagnosis, but you could go far
wrong trying to figure out your
own trouble on the basis of pain.
Pain doesn't always come from
where the trouble Is. Heart trou-
ble can cause shooting pains in
the left arm. The gall bladder can
make your shoulder hurt. Some dis-
eases of the tongue cause earache.
A headache can come from the ef-
fort to hold your temper wlieu you
The amount of pain you feel Is
no sure sign of how serious tlie
trouble is. A. severe Injury, for ex-
ample, may cause a state of shock
which numbs the senses. You might
suffer more lying In bed with a
broken leg than from the immedi-
ate pain of the break.
Once It has given its warning of
trouble, pain U useless to you.
There Is no value in being a mar-

UTILITIES VS. VANITIES
Many men who once considered
toiletries and cosmetics as "sissy
stuff" now find themselves deter-
mined users of one kind or another.
Perhaps some nieu were Introduced
to toiletries through gifta, but now
a sizable number go out and buy
the goods for themselves, a fact
which suggests that there li greater
acceptancc of toilet articles by men
Indeed, in the billion dollar toi-
let goods Industry, men's toiletries
represent »100,000^)00 n figure that
1« not exactly negligible. The num-
ber one seller in this category is
shaving lotion, but the use of deo-
dorants made especially for men
has doubled In the last four years.
Oue source reports that there seems
to be a "bright future for colognes,
If men are educated to nse them
properly." Body powder has long
teen a masculine favorite.
Although a great many people
have not yet accustomed themselves
to the idea of powdered, sweet
smelling escorts, the ldcn of toilet-
ries fc»r men is not by any means a
new one. Louis XIV waved many
a perfumed handkerchief around
the France of his day.
Actually with men, as with wom-
en, some cosmetics are now regard-
ed as utilities Instead of vanities
(would be wonderful If the tax
people would be so convinced), aud
discreet use is very much accept-
able. Of course with men, as with
women, too much can be obnoxious,
only more so.
So our hat Is off to the men. To
them we say go on and use your
cosmetics, but use restraint. I.et
