"Wonder Wife" Gives Advice on Driving

Her Record Wins Medal From Hubby

Chicago -- (NEA) - Women Drivers have been advised not to window shop from a moving automobile and to save the latest choice bit of gossip until the car is stopped.

Now, hang onto your seats, girls! This advice came not from a die-hard male, but from one of the country's foremost women drivers, Mrs. James J. Ingels, wife of a Chicago manufacturer.

The No. 1 "Wonder Wife" (300,000 miles behind the wheel without an accident or traffic violation!) admitted that inattention is the No. 1 fault of women drivers--but she hastened to add that the same weakness can be charged against men, too. Where women let their eyes wander to a new chapeau in a shop window, men mull over business affairs while they drive -- with the same disastrous effect.

Drives 25 years

That's why she began driving her husband on business trips 25 years ago, and Ingels cheerfully, even proudly, admits that she keeps her eyes off hats while driving better than he keeps his mind off business. In fact, he thinks so highly of her skill at the wheel that he had a gold medal struck off at his own expense and presented it to her.

Such unusual goings on by a husband in full possession of his faculties inspired the National Safety council to organize a :Wonder Wives" club, in which any wife can achieve membership by driving 10,000 miles or more without an accident or traffic violation --IF she gets her husband to admit it in a signed statement. Mrs. Ingels, of course became the first member.


The electric brougham of another era would seem more in keeping with the prim grace of Mrs., Ingels than the long black sedan she handles with such ease. She is not the athletic type, nor is she aggressive and cocksure. Slight and mild-mannered, she doesn't believe a woman must have muscles or the reflexes of a champion to drive safely.

"Safe driving is mostly mental," she says, "and paying attention to what you are doing is the most important part. Modern cars don't require strength to drive, but modern traffic requires alertness every minute.

"I never let my attention wander, never window shop or turn my head to talk to others in the car. I try to think about driving all the time, what might happen next and what I should do about it.

Let Them Pass

"And here's another thing-- I never get nervous or impatient in traffic. I let the speed demons go around me, and sure enough, when I get to the next stop light, there they are waiting for me. I take it easy. Hurry causes accidents. And I guess that is all there is to it."

Of course, it's only a woman driver talking, men, but a woman who has 300,000 miles of safe driving to prove that she isn't talking through that hat she didn't look at as she drove by.
