H 8 GOODWINS WEEKLY
I AUTOMOBILE GOSSIP
THE calling off of the Glldden
tour Is much to bo regretted, for
H the feeling is general among mo-
H torists that there should be n big na-
B tional tour held eanh year. It seems
H that the best months for a contest are
H July and August, for in the fall man-
H "ufacturers, dealers and individual mo-
B torists don their working togs and
H cannot afford time for a jaunt which
H will occupy a couple of weeks. The
H calling off of the tour would give
H one the impression that touring was
B on the wane. Then, too, there has
H been much tallc recently that racing
H was dying. Should both touring and
H racing prove to "be no longer wanted,
M the competitive side of the automo-
m bile industry would be without Inter-
B est. It is said by many that neither
M touring nor racing is of any benefit
B to the industry. This, however, is not
H the case. There is greater Interest
H today in touring than there was ten
H years ago, and there is greater inter-
H est in racing on the part of the pub-
H lie than there ever has been. Let the
H Glldden tour bo run over good roads
H and it will then be certain that the
H general motorist will enter for the
M pleasure of it. If touring is no longer

by the American Automobile Associa

be held, for tho reason that presiden

entry list and suspended Interest in
the long-distance tour.

Automobile Insurance. Messrs.
Deming & McMillin, Salt Lake Cty
representatives of the American Au
tomobile Insurance Company, are rev

automobiles. These gentlemen repre
sent a concern that has learned that
automobiles are no greater risk than
ordinary life and accident risks, and
their policy leaves nothing to bo de
sired in the matter of fairness to the
owner and complete protection.
Austin Tire & Rubber Co. Accord
ing to Mr. Austin the patent tire fil
ler propositions that have been so
widely exploited of late, have no ter
rors for the real repairman. There is
a great diversity of opinion among
owners as to the efficiency of the filler
remedy, whereas tires properly re
paired give full measure of satisfac
tion. Utah Tire & Rubber Co. Neer in
the history of the company has the
Firestone Tire concern been so put to
it to fill orders. Mr. Pumphrey of
the Utah Tire & Rubber Co. has been
as muoh worried as the factory, but
thanks to working twenty-four hours
every day things are looking brighter
