Traffic Cops Who
Exceed Duties To

National Motorists Protec
tive League Starts Cam?
paign to Prevent Abuse of
Since the National Motorists* Pro
tcctive League was organized six
months ago many complaints have
been received at its headquarters, al
leging efforts on the part of traffic
policemen of the city to intimidate
members of the league and various
unwarranted forms of abuse and fa
The league has steadfastly re
frained from following up these com?
plaints because the officers and di
rectors of this pi-otcctive body of
motorists feel that any act that might
have the effect of shaking the confi
tiencc of th? public in the officers for
law enforcement would increase the
tendency on the part of motorists to
stretch "or break the rules regulating
the operation of motor vehicles on the
?The league feels, however, the time
has come to present its attitude to
ward those who are charged wrth the
duty of observing infractions of the
law' and intrusted with the powers of
At the outset the league would like
to emphasize as forcibly as possible
the fact that it is heart and, soul be
hind the traffic officers of the city and
state so long as they fearlessly and
impartially exercise their duties, but,
on the other hand, the league goes on
lecord to serve notice to the officers
of the law that it will rigorously
prosecute in its own name any com?
plaints that may be registered in fu
ure, provided the evidence tends to
show the rights of any member of the
league have been abridged.
' Before an officer of the law can
eommand tho proper respect of a citi
zen he must make sure that the citizen
feels that each and every act is
prompted by a desire to make arrests
only upon sufficient provocation, and
that the officer will not take advan?
tage of his uniform and heap abuse
upon the motorist who might in. some
instances prefer to receive a summons
than be subjected to the indignity of a
noisy and^ostentatious reprimand from
one who, after all, derives his author?
ity from organized society, of which
the motorist is an important compo
Investigations made by the league
have established conclusively that
police officers in other countries are
more highly respected by the public
than the police officers of the United
States, and ospecially those of New
York City and vicinity. In the city of
London, for instance, an officer makes
an arrest only as a last resort, and his
fittitude toward the offender against
the law is far more dignrfied and con
servative than that of the American
police. This may be due to the older
tustoms in vogue in foreign countries,
and to the fact that police officers
abroad have learned the lesson of civ
ility to civilians.
Of course, it is not to be inferred
that police officers have abused mem?
bers of the league because they are
members of the league, nor is it sug
gested that any large per cent of'the
members of the New York police force
are guilty as above charged. It is an
age-old rule, however, that the con
servative majority must suffer through
the misconduct of an offending minori
ty. Members of the force themselves
should feel the same deep interest in
arriving at a solution of this problem
as the league does.
Motorists of New York City and
vleinity know certain traffic officers
who handle traffic expeditiously, at
the same time maintaining uniform
courtesy to the public. On the other
hand, motorists know that certain cor?
ners are presided over by traffic police
men who are extremely discourteous
at times and seem to take particular
delight in shouting imprecations at
motorists at the very slightest pre
The traffic laws of New York City,
especially those relating to one-way
traffic on particular streets, are very
difficult indeed for the motorists to!
follow, and the traffic officer should
take a kindly interest in straightenmg
out unintentional offenders for the
good of all concerned.
We cannot help but refer in passing
to the fact that many of the traffic
officers daily strain at gnats and
swallow camels, the camels referred to
being motor trucks and taxicab oper
ators, who apparently are given a
much wider latitude than that enjoyed
by the owners of private cars._
Today Not a Bit Too Early
IF you book your order now for Spring
delivery, you can be reasonably certain to have
your new car ahead of the first robin.
Automobile sales this year are abnormal. No
other year was-ever like this. Buyers are waiting
right now for, cars ordered long ago. AJmost
every maker is oversold. And the demand
grows heavier from day to day.
We are just as anxious as you are to deliver your
car on the day you want it. Therefore we are in
dead earnest when we urge you to book your
order now. \
If you haven't seen the newest Wintori Six, the
surprise car of 1920, let us show you its qualities.

DURING the past few weeks we have personally
made known to many present Oldsmobile
owners who, we knew, will require new Oldsmobiles
next spring that there is but one certain way to make
sure of spring or summer deliveries.
The facts are these: our factory production, although
enormously increased within the past twelve-month,
has been insufficient to fully supply the demand
during the year 1919. As a result we have been, much
to our regret, forced to decline orders from many we
should have liked to serve.
The orders for future deliveries already on our books,
together with our previous experiences, leaves no
doubt but what our 1920 allotment of Oldsmobiles
will fall far short of what Oldsmobile enthusiasts in
this locality will require.
Hence, we seriously advise all those who are
determined that they will 6wn Oldsmobiles next
season to enter their orders at once. Within thirty
days it probably will be impossible to make definite
