Tire Dealers Demonstrate
Ability as Transportation
With many States adopting legislation
regulating truck tire equipment
and carrying heavy loads on
public highways, authorities are becoming
increasingly active in checking
up to see that load limitations
are not exceeded.
Under the plan first used by most
States having such regulations, mo- ]

an operator to be piloting a load j
above the maximum, hailed the offender

truck was not overloaded and the

and most practical machine,
known as the loadometer, which Is
a combined jack and weight indicator.

is completed the type# and size of
tire is checked up to see if same

authorities to enforce the law and
assist in its preservation, but they

truck tire dealers are demonstrating
their qualifications as transportation
experts, for instances are rare,
if not nonexistent, where the truck's
tire equipment has been found out
of accord with State regulations, or
the wrong size and type, according
to the standard of transportation
This is not surprising, for the
truck tire dealer of today, when

A happening of major interest to
real estate circles enacted during
tha past week was the decision of
the Diatrict Rent Commission in
which the purchaser of a co-operative
apartment waa held to be the
legal owner and entitled to posseialon
under the Ball rent law where
the premises were for his own occupancy.
The decision wss returned In ?
favor of J. Harry Carnea, pur- 1
chaaer of a co-operative apartment i
In Dumbarton Courta, in a suit1 ^
brought by J. Bstell* Farnham. who j
endeavored to retain possession by j
appeal to the commission. t
