,rice with men q! truck backed throu h my windshield" typical of accment Vancouver. British Columbia (UPI) - Accidents will happen. But people can come up with some amazing excuses for them, an automobile safety official has discovered. Burnaby Safety Council director Jeff Woolley has collected dozens of lame excuses by motorists trying to explain away an accident. In a recent issue of the Insurance Carp. of British Columbia's publication People, Wool- ley listed these which drivers have offered: "To avoid an accident, I ran into the other car." "'The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intention." "I knocked over a man. He admitted it was his fault as he had been run over before." "The other man altered his mind, so I had to run over him." Some statements read like wife jokes: "'A truck backed through the windshield and into my wife's face." Or: "I ran into a store window and u tained injuries to mv wife." THEN THERE was the man who attributed his accident to "misju(tg- ment of a lady crossing the street." According to one man, sex appeal also causes accidents: "She suddenly saw me, lost her head and we met.'" Other drivers seem to have troubles with the mechanical comple- xity of their automobiles. One said: "One wheel went into the ditch. My feet jumped from brake to accelerator pedal. I leaped across to the other side and jammed into the trunk of a tree." Another seemed surprised when he said, "I left my car unattended for a minute when, by accident or design, it ran away." Another stuck his neck out too far: "'l thought the side window was down. but it was up. as I found when I put my head through it." Or: "A bull was standing near. and a fly must have tickled him as he gored my car." And last. but not least, was the man who truthfully stated: "I collided with a stationary tree."

"'In a skirmish near Tarrytown. she suffered a sword cut to the head. and at Eastchester she took a bullet in her thigh that troubled her the rest of her life." Miss Sampson treated her own wounds, to avoid detection, but her masquerade ended when she con- tracted a fever later while serving as an orderly in Philadelphia. A doctor discovered her secret and "PvL ShurtlefF' was honorably discharged.

In several cases, it was practically impossible to take students out at all, according to a Fellowship spokesman. Presently, Center students "are ministered to by various religious groups who hold worship services in the recreation hall. Bible studies are held in the library and student lounge. The Chapel will be a centralized area for meeting these and other needs. In a year's time more than 150 worship services will be held there, along with Bible studies, group discussions and religious drama groups. Approximately $150,000 is needed to build the chapel and the money must come from sources other than Federal and State funds, the Fellowship spokesman said. Churches, civic clubs, service often served services-gave the Rebels valuable "orga tio . , teran s 8r0ppa,,an l. and information on the movements of the national foun~tions are bemglasked King's forces in and around Boston.

Steady sweet treats [ bad for teeth The risk of tooth decay for any person depends primarily on how often one eats sugar, not on how much is eaten per day or year. The acidity of plaque, the invisible sticky bacterial film that forms on teeth, rises rapidly each time sugar is eaten and stays high for about 20 minutes according to the National Institute of Dental Research. Therefore, a person who custom- arily has only three meals a day, even if they are rich in sugar, is at less risk than another who consumes a smaller amount of sweets but nibbles them all day long.
