Even though our driver education program has stopped many deaths on the highways of our country, the newspapers are still full of the tragic stories of teen-age traffic deaths.
This would indicate that the driver education

There must be a follow-up program
after the student has taken driver training.
is the role the automobile club could play in the high school curriculum.
It is for this reason, along with others,
that this syllabus has been written. It is true that the main function of such a club would be to promote a generation of safer drivers to our streets but, it would also promote a better type of automobile on our public streets. The automobile club in the secondary school, will also establish a long lost relationship.
This relationship is
that of the police officer and the youth.
Through a club
of this type such relations could be very easily accomplish ed in a short time.
Another relationship that this club
could mend is that of the youth and his community.
of this type in the school could also give the community a better understanding of the builder of the so called "hot rod.”
This boy has been an outsider for far to long of a
He must be brought into the community along with his
"hot-rod." 1+ is the schools’ responsibility to see that the driver education course is given, but why shouldn’t the school have the responsibility of the follow-up program? Must
we go on allowing our young children to be killed in
street "drag" races?
Should we let our young driver roam
about the street looking for activity when our schools could give the activity to the driver?
Shall we let all
the knowledge the driver learned in driver education courses go to waste? This knowledge, ability, daring, and activity drive of the young driver must be put in the right direction.
this is not done then we the teachers of our children are responsible for their deaths. This syllabus is to be used by the sponsor of the automobile club as a guide.
The answers to the many
sponsorship problems may vary in certain situations, the author of this syllabus hopes that it will aid the new, young and energie sponsor on his way to success. Special thanks are to be given to the following persons for their kind and generous help: ROBERT J. CHENEY
Assistant Manager, Public Safety Department, Automobile Club of Southern California.

Principal, Los Angeles High School, Los Angeles.
