General note

"Sponsored by the Safety Council of the Wetaskiwin Kiwanis Club and endorsed by civic authorities and the R.C.M.P." (Wetaskiwin Times April 12, 1950), the Safety Campaign was a period from April 15 until May 15 when motorists could get their vehicles inspected for free at any garage in the city. Safety stickers were issued to all cars that passed inspection to be displayed on windshields. Cars without stickers would be subject to inspection by Police after May 15. The Wetaskiwin campaign was part of a province wide effort to make travel safer. This photo shows a number of car owners, who have received their safety stickers, in front of City Hall. From left to right: Corporal C.V. Teeple, R.C.M.P. Howard Clark, Morley Merner, Jack Short, Eli Aboussafy, Chuck Johnson, Louis Ragosin, George Aboussafy, Horace R. French, Lyn Yule, Don McRae, Dr. Leavert Johnson, Einar Cortsen, W. McAllister, and Percy McKelvey. Mr. McKelvey is from Ponoka.<br><br>
