The speed demon has always ex-
isted In one form or another. Greek
mythology in the story of how Phae-
thon drove his father’s chariot offers
perhaps the earliest example of what
can happen when people drive a
vehicle so fast that it gets beyond
tkeir ability to control it. It will be
remembered that Phaethon wished
to prove that Apollo, the God of the
Sun, was his father, and for his
proof, sought,to persuade his father
to let him drive the chariot. Apollo
finally consented with reluctance,
and after many warnings and in-
structions, the boy set out. Then
Phaethon lost control of the fiery
horses and set the world on fire.
Jupiter had to toss a thunderbolt at
Phaethon to stop him.
This myth is strangely modern.
People are warned today about the
dangers of speed. But many drivers
try to set the world on fire by their
speed, Just as Phaethon did.
When the horse and buggy clut-
tered up the streets, the speed

demon was In evidence. Usually
rlie horse made up for any deficiency
In the judgment of the driver. Then,
when the bicycle rage was at its
height, there were many who gava
a good imitation of how a human
being tried to overcome the force of
wind resistance. In the early days of
the automobile, loud complaints
were made about the dangers of a
speed of five or ten miles an hour.
The public today may be Inclined
to poke fun at the earlier examples
of the speed demon, but perhaps the
present age will be laughed at in
some distant day because of the way
many rush about in cars.
Last year the rate of death per
accident which involved exceeding
the speed limit was ?5 per cent
worse than the average death rate
for all accidents due to improper
driving practices. A word to the wise
is sufficient. It has been said that if
everybody would drive about 20 per
cent slower a lot of the national
oversupply of automobile accidents
would be reduced.
