OPERATION OF AUTOS
IS SERIOUS PROBLEM
LOCAL DEALER DISCUSSES
SALES ON INCREASE
April Always Been Biggest Month
of Year But Demand Came
Mach Earlier This.Year. i
'^Reports show that then; were
moro than 2,100.000 automobiles li
censed In this country in li? 15, und lt
is estimated that this year the totals
will reach something like 2,750,000,
allowing 20 per cont for care which
probably will bo junked," stated a
prominent automobile dealer of An-j
"The sales to d?te thlB year have
exceedod all previous records. In I
this section of the country April has'
always been the biggest sales month
of the year. However the demand
tor cars became heavy along in Feb
ruary, ami since that time they have
been sold Just about as fast as they
can be received, and in some instances
faster," continued the dealer.
"Taking the iigurey I gave a min
ute ago as a basis, if as oil men es
timate, each car consumes about 500
gallons of gasoline a year on the
average, the consumption this summer
will probably be at the rate of 1.375,
"With the price of gasoline now
well abovedo cents a gallon, and go
ing higher, the matter of operating
cars as economically as possible,
without curtailing their usefulness,
becomes a problem of tremendous im
portance. In thousands of cases it
is really a" curious problem.
"During Uie winter months the con
sumption of gasoline for automobile
purposes Ivas, of course, been at the
minimum; with the opening of the
touring season it will mount to' maxi
mum. tAs there is no likelihood of the
cost of 'the fuel declining, it ls safe to
say that car owners aro going to give
more intelligent consideration than
ever .before to economy ..in operation.
"For ono thing.' there undoubtedly
will be keener appreciation of thc
fact that a-car which is simple in de
sign and comKrVjction ip' th? cheapest

and tho breakage bazar 1 baye each

"Simplification in perhaps tho most
Important thing in. connection with
the manufacture, sale and use. of au-,
tom obi les today. It ky important not
only from tho economic standpoint,
but ibecause the greater thc degree of
simplicity in o car tho greater the
