Wednesday, December 14, 1983 The GLOBE--5 rnor's program aims to reduce alcohol-related accidents has commend- for the in reducing crashes and has continue working for during the 1983 holiday season. Spellman has launched a holiday in- formation and education program, "You Did It Once, You Can Do It Again." The program is being coor- dinated by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission and Liquor Con- trol Board. "The 'you' in the theme title refers to all the people who so effectively were deeply involved in efforts to stem the drinking driver death toll a year to make your party a success are having a party this Let's hope you and enjoy themselves.

A "drink-an-hour" schedule means good company prevails. Don't double up -- Many peo- ple count and pace their drinks, so serve single measured portions. If you serve doubles, they'll be drink- ing twice as much as they planned. Doubling up isn't hospitable; it's rude. Don't push drinks -- Let the glass be empty before you offer a refill and then don't rush, especial- ly if someone comes up empty too fast. When a guest says "no, thanks" to an alcohol drink--please, don't insist. Push non-salted or lightly salted snacks --Do this while your guests are drinking, not after. This is im- portant because food slows down the rate at which alcohol is absorb- ed into the bloodstream and slows the rate at which people drink. Serve several nonalcoholic drinks -- One of three adults chooses not to drink at all. Occa- sional drinkers sometimes prefer not to. Offer a choice of drinks besides alcohol, such as fruit and vegetable juices or non-carbonated fruit punches. Offer more than drinks -- When guests focus on the drinks, the par- ty is slipping. Stir up conversation or draw out the guest talent. Serving dinner -- If it's a dinner party, serve dinner before it's too late. A cocktail hour is supposed to enchance a fine dinner, not com- pete with it. After too many drinks, guests may not remember what they ate or how it tasted. Set drinking limits -- When a guest has had too much to drink, you can politely express your con- cern for him or her by offering a substitute drink. This is a gentle way of telling a guest that he has reached the limits you have set for your business or household. Closing the bar -- Decide in ad- vance when you want your party m end. Then close the bar one hour before. A considerate way to close the drinking phase is to serve a substantial snack during this last hour. It provides some non- drinking time before your guests start to drive home. Helping guests home -- If a guest appears to have had too much to drink, help him get home. Call a cab, arrange for a ride with someone else or drive him yourself. Let him stay the night. ago," Spellman said. "The 1983 holi- day campaign will focus upon the ac- tivities that are being conducted across the state by people concerned with the drinking driver issue." Last year, 33 people were killed dur- ing November and December in traffic crashes involving drivers who had been drinking. The number of people in- jured during those months totaled 2,102. "These numbers still are too high," Spellman said, "but there were 34 fewer deaths and 784 fewer injuries than during the same two months the previous year. This shows that when the people of this state start speaking out and taking positive steps to correct a problem, such as happened with the drinking driver issue, good things do happen." He pointed out that the downward ,trend in alcohol-related fatalities started a year ago is continuing in 1983. Through the first nine montfis of 1983, there were 90 fewer drinking driver deaths than during the same period in 1982. There are many innovative activities that will help our state traffic record improve even greater, Spellman said. The alcohol beverage industry is great- ly concerned about the number of peo- ple who leave their establishments and become involved in traffic crashes. "That is why many restaurants and taverns are adopting designated driver programs, providing free non- alcoholic drinks to members of parties that will be driving." City and county DWI task forces, in- volving both government officials and citizens, have been organized the past year to attack the drinking driver pro- blem in their areas. Special enforcement patrols, even free no-questions-asked rides home from parties are being offered by law enforcement agencies. Citizens are deeply involved in these community efforts. For instance, all eight existing chapters of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) are planning special educational programs. "It is well known that the drinking driver is one of the major killers of our citizens, especially those of a young age. In past years, state and local governments have tried to reduce the tragic crashes caused by drinking drivers. But not until citizens became involved have we seen such a dramatic drop in deaths as was seen a year ago and so far this year. "That is why this year's holiday in- formation program is aimed at en- couraging continued, if not increased, participation in the solution to this problem by citizens. Only with the combined, cooperative efforts of citizens and government can we come close to xeducing the drinking driver problem." Holiday spirit grows through local food drives Offices of members of the Washington Association of Realtors all over the state are reporting generous response to their annual "Operation Furkey"appeal. Money and food for local hunger programs are coming in as people share their holiday good spirits with those in need. Every realtor office displaying their distinctive poster featuring cartoons of the hapless holiday bird participates in the program and will receive donations of either money with which to purcahse food or canned and packaged non- perishable foods. Assisting in the coordination of the statewide drive, Northwest Second Harvest has provided a telephone referral service. Information regarding the nearest realtor office participating can be obtained by calling 1-800-772-NW2H. Participating realtors will deliver food and donations within their own community to help with the needs of people in that area. Organized in 1982 as a means for both realtors and the public to respond to the increasing need for food for the unemployed and the disadvantaged, the project raised nearly $25,000 in the first year. Amy Dedoyard, state coor- dinator for the Washington A~socia- tion of Realtors effort expressed their hope to double that figure for 1983. "Our purpose in assisting the realtors of Washington is a single one," Northwest Second Harvest director Ruth Sterling said. "To help make it as easy as possible for in- dividuals, groups and organizations to give more in their own communities. "There is probably no city or town in the state that does not need more food resources to help their people. The 'Operation Turkey' project is just one more way to inspire the help that is needed.
