"u11 nouday Primary Workers Attend Regional Convention Check Accidents Off Your Christ-mast Christ-mast List." W. D. Hammond, chairman of the State Road Commission, made that appeal today to drivers and pedestrians throughout the state in an effort to cut down the heavy December traffic toll. Not only Is the appeal aimed at the blight on Christmas happiness, but it is a last-ditch fight to keep traffic fatalities this year from soaring above those of 1939. During December of last year thirteen persons in Utah lost their lives in automobile accidents. Last montii contributed eighteen traffic deaths four more than during November No-vember 1939. If this year's traffic toll continues along the pattern set thus far, Utah will pile up its largest larg-est holiday traffic toll. The only way to prevent it is for the drivers to carry the Christmas spirit and for pedestrians to do their part by being extra careful. The December traffic toll Is usually the heaviest of all the year due to bad weather, more hours of darkness and the Christmas holiday rush. To thwart these traffic bugaboos, bug-aboos, Mr. Hammond suggests: 1. Don't drive If you have been drinking. 2. Balance more darkness and bad weather with less speed and more caution start earlier, 3. Don't let the hustle and bustle of the holiday season make you Impatient or careless when you drive or walk. Take it easy. Please do your part to make the highways safe this Christmas! month. Tax Portions Distributed In Co.

Alpine Basketball Schedule Revised Although precipitation over the state as a whole has been normal since October 1, and In some places considerably above the average. State Engineer T. H. Humpherys said Thursday that Utah reservoirs are depleted because of the recent drouth and a saving of water Is necessary to prevent a shortage next summer. The situation with respect w precipitation pre-cipitation was described as a result of reports from more than 30 U. S. weather bureau stations and 25 water commissioners scattered in various parts of the state. Contrasted with the other sections sec-tions of Utah, precipation In Washington Wash-ington county and southern Iron county from October 1 to December 1 was only 50 per cent of normal. In Cache, Weber, parts of Rich and Summit, Salt Lake, Utah and Sanpete San-pete counties it was 10 per cent above normal, and In the greater part of Sevier, Emery, Grand, Garfield, Gar-field, Wayne and San Juan counties It was 50 per cent over normal. Mr. Humpherys said the underground under-ground water basins are recovering from their depleted conditions resulting re-sulting fnm heavy diversions last summer, but a detailed Inventory cannot be made before the first of the year when the water levels will have become more stabilized. On December 1 there were 903,-700 903,-700 acre feet of water in storage in the 14 principal reservoirs of the state, compared with 1,053,500 on the same date in 1939, and 1,282,900 in 1938. Mr. Humpherys said that because of the fact that Bear lake is so much larger than the other reservoirs those figures may be misleading. mis-leading. With this lake taken out, the storage as of December 1 was only 237,700 acre feet compared with 422,500 a year ago and 578,900 two years ago. In a summary of the present situation, sit-uation, taking all things into account, ac-count, heusaU, "Considcji the accumulated precipitation, the underground un-derground water supply and the reservoir storage as of December 1, the water supply is about the same as It was on the same date n 1933. What the next five months will bring Is something that cannot be foretold. "However, It Is only good sense for water users to Impound all storage possible and stop wasting from wells, and thus conserve the supply for next year. Unless the precipitation Is considerably in excess ex-cess of that of the winter of 1939-40 the drouth condition next summer will be acute. Because of the state high school basketball tournament being set a week later, a revision of the Alpine district basketball schedule has been announced by A. P.
