PROVEN SAVER OF

tion Problems Travel
By HARRY WARD.
Commentlnc on the rapid strides being
,, rnndo In the automobile Industry, one
of the leading mailers recently remark
ed It would be strange to find an other
wise well-Informed mun who would un
dertake to deny thut In the automoblto
tho pioblems of Individual transporta
tion havo been solved with a degree of
success that has no parallel In history.
"Yet a little while ago so recently.
In fact, that to many the recollection
of It seems like a memory of yesterday
the automobile was considered an al
most unattainable' luxury: Its posses
sion was synonymous with affluence
or reckless living," he continued.
"All that has changed. I'crhaps by
reason of tho fact that we assumed
sponsorship for the Industry after It
had already outgrown Its Infantile
weaknesses In Europe, our American
automobile bus'ness progressed In leaps'
and bounds and became the first to set
tle Into a tranquil state. Just as the
American automobllo was tho first to
. become standardized In Its mechanical
features, being now subject to further
development by refinement of less Im
portant details than by radical
"Today the motor vehicle Is recog
nised as the best and cheapest vehicle
In existence, whether It Is to be used
for business or for pleasure. As a
pleasure vehicle the motor car has no
equal. The bugbear of the traveler, the
rigid, flgurcd-out-ln-advanco time sched
ule, docs not burden tho automobllo
tourist who owns and manages his
own system of transportation.
"To the man who Is his own chauf
feur automoblllng affords a rare relax
ation. Ilequlrlng In Itself no great
physical exertion, It tra'ns the powers
of co-ordination. The attention which
tho motorist gives to the propor run
ning of his car takes his mind away
from the cures and tabulations of
business and from the Irritations of
life. Fresh air and good company
cause his worries 'to fold their tents,'
leaving only the memory of well-spent
hours and the knowledge that the auto
mobile has added ono mole Incompar
able charm to our complicated ex'st
enre. "All this being ns It Is, Is it any
wonder that tho automobile more than
ever holds the center of tho Industrial
stage and the attention of the public,
and thut our highways are fairly dot
ted with motor cars?"
Getting Tire Points
Car onners have learned a meat deal
about tires during tho last few years,
but there aie several fallacies that it
seems Impossible to get out of the ac
age automobile owners' mind.
"The belief that hot weather and road
friction Increase the air pressure In a
tire to u dangerous point costs the car
owners of this country millions of dol
lars' every year," said W. V Aydclotte,
of the Diamond ltubber Company, who
is In Washington directing tho cam
paign on Diamond safety trend tlfes.
"Because of this fallacy thouxunds of
car owners habitually travel on under
Inflated tires, the 'soft' tire becomes
bruised and cut and before long there Is
a blow-out. Tho Internal friction In a
tiro caused by the bending of tho ma
terial, especially tho fabric, does heat
the tire but the softer tho tire the
f;reater the bending octlon and tho moro

to follow this rule there would bo far
