J. Frank'Duryea Has
DoneMuch for Cars
"When the history of the development
of the Amerloan motor car comes to be
written there certainly will be a large
share of the credit for some of the
most Important Improvements now In
general use due to J, Frank Duryea, the
designer of Btevens-Duryea cars," said
T, Lamar Jackson, the Btevons-Duryea
agent here, talking over the advances
of the last few years In automobile de
sign. "Few persons realise how many of
the most practical Innovations to be
found on automobiles generally today
Mr. Duryea has been responsible for.
The unit power plant on the three-point
support, the multiple dlao dry plate
clutch, and similar features of the de
sign originated by Duryea a number fcf
years ago have become so generally em
ployed within the past few years that
most people have forgotten that the
Btevens-Duryea was the first car on
which they appeared."

Keep, Tires in Winter
Within the next four weeks thousands
of motorists In all parts of the country
will be Isyjng up their cars for the
