Automobile Club of Washington Will Give Orphans Motor Car Ride to Glen' Echo
Several Hundred Parentless
Children Will Be Given
Ride to Glen Echo.

Washington's Premier Pitcher in Everitt Car
By HARRY WARD.
Plans are nearly completed for the
annual celebration of Orphans' Day hy
the Automobile Club of Washington.
Next Thursday, June 27, at 2 o'clock,
I nearly one hundred machines, carrying
several hundred happy children from
the various Institutions, will leave the
Municipal Building for Glen Echo,
where the "kiddles" will be tho guests
of the club. It. B. Schloss, manager of
Glen Echo, has generously tendered the
i use of the grounds and amusements for
the occasion, and will assist in making
the celebration a memorablo one.
The children will be gathered from
(the different institutions and brought
In motor cars to the Municipal Build
ing, where the parade will be formed.
Each car will carry flags and every
'child will be furnished .with the na
tional colors. The routo will be out
Pennsylvania avenue, through George
town to the Conduit road. As earjh
machine will be filled to the limit wfth
children, donors of cars have been
iaeked to refrain from racing while on
the Conduit road.
To "Joy Riding."
"I trust no one who donates a car
for Orphans' Day will permit it to run
over fifteen miles an hour while car
rying the children," said Harrington
Mills, president of the Automobile Club.
"We want to give the little unfortu
nates a fine, big time, and with so many
cars In a line a tendency to 'hit it up'
would be rather dangerous."
The committee in charge of the cele
bration consists of the automobllo edi
tor of The Times, Harry Ducksteln,
William Ullman, and Howard Flsk.
iHudoIph Jose, captain of the club, will
be the marshal of tne parade. Motor
lists desiring to donate the use of their
cars are requested to notify Captain
Jose or the automobile editors of the
Washington newspapers Car owners
are expected to report to the marshal
at the Municipal Building not later than
1 o'clock. In order that they may have
ample time to get the children from the
various institutions and bring them to
the starting point by 2 o'clock. Get
, aboard and help give the orphans the
best treat of their lives.
The idea of Orphans' Day originated
with "Senator" W. J. Morgan, a New
York newspaper man. Here is his BtorV
of how it originated:
How It Originated.
"The origin of the Orphans' Automo
bile Day is credited to New York, with
Savannah, Ga., a close second. Some
clnd evangel suggested tho Idea to me
one day eight years ago at Fifty-sixth
street and Broadway.
"The particular thing that caused the
thought was ono of those kind women
,known as sisters of charity, who was ,
walking down town with two little for
lorn children, one In each hand. Then '
came the thought, which may have been
produced by what Lincoln on the field .
of Gettysburg called 'the mystic chord j
of memory, which touches the better i
angels of our natures. I
'The sugccb'.iun was, 'Why not ivo
the chlldien a tiny s out'nc In auto-'
mobiles once :i year?' It v culd b" a
isirat boon the the little ones who I
nevr otherwise m.iy have the oppor-1
tunltv of rldlnc In itn automobile. Tho
M'xt thought was that It Tny also
Miow the people that automoblllsts lo
not axlht solely for the pleasure of
runnlnsr over tliem, and thus disarm
that which tit the time was a stroll?;
cliicilon to .sutomobllists and auto
mobUing. ' The American Au'omoMle Associa
tion, alwavs to tho front l'i t'ood work
for motoilntf, h.iw that the thlncr was
good, and trio sp- wtarv of the organiza
tion at that time Him out a perioral
upppial to A. Ji. A. clubs all over tho
tountry asking them to iie'tnowldse
the (ti'iid work and make Orphans' Au
tomobile Dav :i national institution,
which was donr. Savannah, as fat as
If known, was the s?eor.d ollv to Ivc
an Orphans' Automobile Day.

In spite of the fact that overloading Is
one of tho most destructive Influences
to which tires can be subjected. It is
n question whether, one automobile
owner In ten has any Idea of the weight
his tires aro designed to carry.
Experiments have proved conclusive
ly that the life of overburdened tires Is
considerably shorter than it Is where
Ihe designated carrying capacity is not
exceeded. Therefore, the direct effect
of overloading Is to Increase tire ex
pense. In order that motorists may know ex
actly how much of a load they have a
right to expect their tires to carry the

tire manufacturing companies recom

The pertinent fact about overload
ing Is that It breaks down the side
wnlls of the rasing, laying the found
ation for a blowout which Is bound
eventually to occur. By the time this
happens tho rasing Is so badly dam
aged It Is beyond repair.

A million and a quarter of these
premier tires have now gone into
use. They have been tested out on
some 200,000 cars.
They were tested on our claim
that No-Rim-Cut tires cut the
average tire bills in two. And the
present demand proves they did it.
No-Rim-Cut tires now far out
sell any other tire in the world.
Our output now is nearly 100,000
How They Do It
No-Rim-Cut tires end rim-cutting
forever. And rim -cutting
occurs on 23 per cent of all the
That is proved by statistics cov
ering many thousands of ruined
In addition to that, No-Rim-Cut
tires are 10 percent over the rated
size. And 10 per cent oversize,
under average conditions, adds 25
pr cent to the tire mileage.
So these patent tires save 23 per
cent, plus 25 per cent, on the
They save, in fact, more than
that. For No-Rita-Cut tires are
the final result of 13 years spent
in tire making.
In perfecting them we tested
out 240 formulas and fabrics. We
tested them by metered mileage
on testing machines in our factory.
These years of tests have taught
us how to get the utmost mileage
from a rubber tire.
You get all that perfection, plus
tires that can't rim-cut, plus over
size tires, when you get this patent
