HELP FIRES IN THE SOUTH Traffic Far Outstrips Vietnam Casualties Chicago (NC) -- Traffic safe- ty is a religious and moral prob- lem, as well as a physical and educational one, Father James F. Cunningham, C.S.P., told safety experts meeting here. "We have dinned into our ears hour after hour the problems of the Vietnam war," Father Cun- ningham said. "Yet, we have here a greater war, free from all the complexities of ideology and pol- itics. "In the past eight years we have lost 38,887 American livesin com- bat. In the past eight months we have lost the lives of 36,330 people in highway traffic. "Here there are no Congres- sional medals, no Purple Hearts, and no purpose; only a waste of God's precious gift of life," Father Cunningham continued. "This calls for the application of moral and ethical standards," he added. Father Cunningham, pastor of Old St. Mary's Church here, was guest speaker at an early morn- ing devotional of the National Safe- ty Congress. The Conference of Religious Leaders sponsored the devotional for industrial safety en- gineers and others who work full time in accident prevention. Father Cunningham said care- less, imprudent, reckless, intox- icated, and distracted drivers are guilty of serious sin aginst so- ciety, their fellow men, and God. "Our land andourpeopleare in danger not only from the 'destroy- ers' within or the enemy without but from ourselves, our driving habits," Father Cunningham said. "Is it not time now for church and religious leaders to add their voices to the plea that we be careful drivers?" he asked.
