United Slates army olliecrs ex
pressed very forcibly their view?
of the satisfactory work accomplish
ed by tlic motor trucks in the re
cent Dayton disaster.
V. E. Morton, nss'iHtant manager
truck ilepartmunt of the Packard
Motor Car Company, after inspect
ing conditions in Dayton said;
"Witli practically all of Daytons's
liorses killed in tlie disaster it is
hard to imagine liow conditions
which existed could possibly have
leen met in an efficient manner
without the trucks. When one
realizes that a great numler of
motor trucks has been kept on con
stant relief duty by large manu
facturing concerns which have come
to the rescue of Dayton's citizens
for a period of four weeks and ye
the work is not anywhere near com
pleted, he will then have some idea
as to the pressing need of modern
hauling equipment in times of
"Trallic on the widest thorough
fares was practically impossible
until the trucks had started to work.
It wa3 diflicult even for pedestrians
to make their way through the
tangle. All manner of refuse choked
the streets and had to be removed
before headway could be made in
reopening homes and places of busi
ness, "Although remarkable progress
has been made in clearing the
streets of filth and debris, there is
still plenty ;f work for the trucks
to do. Supplies are being hauled
daily from the freight depot to the
relief stations in all parts of the
city, from which the majority of
the 12"), 000 inhabitants are at pre
sent receiving daily portions of
The most severe test ever given
an automobile engine under ollicial
observance began Saturday, May 3,
when the- motor of a standard
Packard "38" was placed upon the
test rack in the garage of the Auto
mobile Club of America, in New
York, for a non-stop run of 200
hours. The ollicial world's record
non-stop motor test is 132 hours,
made over two years ago in England.
The motor being tested was taken
from a Packard "38" car upon its
arrival in New York after a. hard
run from Cleveland, Ohio.
The test is leing made under the
auspices of the technical committee
of the Automobile Club of America,
which will make a detailed report

Shipments of Packard cars and
trucks in April were the largest for
any one month in the history of
Packard vehicles placed in the
hands of purchasers, represent a
value of approximately 82,748,750
as compared with the best previous
record of $2,290,250.

also reports a heavy volume of sales
in April. Specifications received
during the month for cars sold by
dealers for early delivery to cus
tomers totaled f 1,500,000 for motor
carriages alone. These sales were
distributed about equally between

One of the cleverest swindles ever
engineered has recently been worked
with the aid of a pack of ordinary
playing cards, the telephone and a
most retentive memory plus, of
course, a distant confederate.
This is the game: In a public res
taurant or bar where there is a tele
phone call box the swindler gets
into conversation with the intended
victim and artfully turnirv the talk
in the direction of though ff reading,
mental telepathy and second sight,
asserts he has a sympathetic friend
at the other end of London who can
instantly tell the name of any card
which may be selected from the
pack, the chooser of that card to
ring him up and ask, in his own
words and without any prompting,
what the particular card is.
The victim repudiates tho possi
bility of such a marvelous feat, and a
bet, the heavier the better, is made.
The card is chosen and is seen by
lie does not leave his seat. All
he does is to say to the victim "Ring
up (say) 009,099 Gerrard and ask
my friend Mr. So-and-so what card
you have chosen."
The other does so, and assuming,
for the sake of argument, that the
selected card was the nine of dia
monds, that is the reply which he
The modus operandi is simplicity
itself. The swindler has memorized
the names of thirteen ordinary
cards of one suit against thirteen
ordinary English surnames. Say
clubs have been chosen; then the
aco will be Mr. Brown ; the two, Mr.
Smith; the three, Mr. Jones, and
so on. If the card which is selected
is a diamond he puts a Christian
name in front of the surname and
says: "Ask for Mr. 'Thomas'
Drown." If it is a heart ho makes
it "Miss" Drown, and if it is a
spade he makes it Miss "Rose"
Brown, or any other Christian name.
The confederate at the other end
of the wire has only to look at the
prepared list, which lays tabulated
before him, and according to what
is asked for by the victim whether
just plain "Mr." or "Mr." with
a Christian name or the same me
thod as regards the lady, he gives
iu answer to the inquiry tho values
and suit of the card which corres
ponds to it.
The swindler, of course, wins the
bet, and shares with the confederate
