Photograph caption dated August 14, 1954 reads, "Dr. M. K. Greenspoon, left, watches with obvious approval as his 'patient,' H. H. Pierpont, undergoes 'treatment' of signing Safety Pledge. Dr. Greenspoon is president of Sherman Oaks Junior Chamber of Commerce. Pierpont is King Lion of Sherman Oaks Lions Club and scene is recent Lions' meeting at which entire club signed Safety Pledges. It's all a part of the Valley Junior Chamber's drive to get 70,000 Safety Pledges signed in the San Fernando Valley. The Safety Pledge campaign, called the Greatest Crusade in History, will cut down California's traffic death toll by at least 20 per cent, according to the California Safety Council."
