I State's November Traffic Toll Is 47 t Mississippi's November traffic death toll was 47 killed, one less !than died during November 1956. : According to Commissioner of Public Safety Tom Scarbrough, the state's highway death figure for the year (through Nov. 30) stands at 450 killed. This is 36 highway deaths less than reported during the corresponding period last year when 486 died as a result of auto- i mible accidents. The slight reduction in November traffic deaths was due in part to a decrease in 1957 "Thanksgiving ac- cidents." Twelve motorists perished in '56 Thanksgiving week end traf- fic mishaps; only nine have been reported kiUed so far as a result of 'holiday auto accidents this Thanks- giving. [ According to Commissioner Scar- brough, the month of December which lies ahead is annuatly the most costly month of the year in lives lost. Last Decem bet, 77 motor- :ists died in auto mishaps, the high- est monthly death toll of 1956. Adverse December weather, more instances of holiday "drinking while driving," and simple driver carelessness contribute to the high December figure. Alert, responsible <lriving prevents accidents. Livestock Owners Urged To Re-Record Brands At Once All livestock owners who have not re-recorded their brands for the sent five-year registration period present five-year registration period with the Mississippi Livestock Theft Bureau. According to Commissioner of Public Safety Tom Scarbrough, all brand owners were sent a rerecord- ing form prior to April 1, 1957, ad- vising that the old registration would expire June 30.
