I just posted this clipping to the User-Contributed Data Forum at

From The Sikeston Herald
Thursday, June 23, 1938, Sikeston, Missouri

Traffic Fatalities Showing Increase According to a tabulation in the Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian last Saturday, traffic fatalities in this district shows a slight increase over the corresponding period last year.

Up to Saturday, there had been 28 persons killed in automobile accidents on Southeast Missouri highways, rural and farm-to-market roads as compared to 26 for the corresponding period in 1937.

This number does not include Southeast Missouri people killed in other territories such as the accident last Saturday near Higginsville in which two people from Chaffee and one from St. Joseph met death.
