March Of Dimes To Benefit By Hunt In addition to a good time" and th possibility of ridding the area of predatory fox and some rab- bits, a good cause will benefit from the organized hunt next Sundaythe March of Dimes. Emil Kudrna is hoping for a record turnout f: at least 70 hunters. Sections have already been selected and arrangements made for the hunt starting at 1:00 o'clock in the afternoon after as- sembling at Emil's or TholeD Bros.' places. Last Sunday, two fox were tak- en and 91 rabbits when a good crowd of 50 hunters showed up. Traffic records for 1956 show "hat Lincoln County must share the blame for Minnesota having one of its worst traffic death rec- ords in years. Figures released from the Minnesota Department of Highways show that fatalities increased from two in 1955 to three in 1956. Although it is only one more death, it is an in- crease of fifty percent over the previous year and if ery Min- nesota county had such a record, the worst year in history would have been recorded. Rock County made a most impressive record. In 1955, ten persons lost their lives on roads in that county and in 1956, not one fatality was recorded. This record was the best for any of Minne- sota's 87 counties. The state picture as a whole is shown on the map above. Min- nesota recorded 637 highway deaths in 1956 compared to 580 the preceding year.
