Not Candidate for Bank
Among the banks and other companies

few important changes are being
contemplated, though some of the annu-rllj-
recurrent rumors arc on the street.
It is admitted at the Columbia National
Bank that the position of president may
be, occupied next fiscal year by a suo
ctssor to A. F. Fox, w ho has long been
at the head of the InstltuUon and who
Is now frank in his desire to rcUre.
Mr. Fox said today that while he
knew what he thought he would do, he
was not sure that the directors would
agree with him. One of the possible
successors to Mr. Fox, who has been
spoken of as a candidate for the posi
tion, Benjamin W. Guy. itook occasion
today to say that in no sense is he a
candidate for the poslUon.
If the change Is not made Immedi
ately following the annual meeting,
it Is expected that Mr. Fox will re
tire shortly thereafter and not un
dertake to serve out another year.

Dealer Says Automobile
Business Is Now Soundly
By HARRY WARD.
That the motor car Industry will be
Icvcn brighter In the future than iri the
past Is the opinion of one of the best
known men In tho automobile industry.
The maker In 'question thinks that the
industry has Just settled down to a reg
ular stride and the builders arc Just
beginning to produce really high types
of motor cars. He does not mean that
the previous cars have not been good,
but that as In every other manufactur
ing line, a certain period Is required to
get a product perfected.
Motor cars had to go through that
early stage of development. But this
being a much faster age the develop
ment has been much more rapid. And
now I firmly believe that the real
motor car manufacturing business has
Just begun. Or course. In many cars
there has been one dominant Idea
which has not been altered, such as
the friction transmission of the Car
ter car, but the outer appearance of
the cars have been Improved and we
find an entirely different car today from
that produced Just a few jears ago.
Bruce T. Pugh. of Shannon & Luchs'
sales department, has purchased an
Overland touring car from the Overland
Washington Motor Company.
Tho Washington Auto Service Com
pany, the recently appointed agent
here for the Hupmobile line of pleasure
cars and deliver wagons, will tako
possession of Its new salesroom and
garage at Fourteenth and W streets,

are now being made to the building.

a roadster to Dr. Hugh McGulre. of
Alexandria, and a coupe to Mrs. -T. W
Miller Brothers, agents for the Ford,
have received the following statement
from the Ford Motor Company:
"Rumors to the effect that the Ford
.Motor Company has been sold to the
Standard Oil Company are absolutely
wlthout foundation. There have been
no negotiations of this character, and
in fact, no negotiations with any one
for-the sale of the company as a whole
or any part of Its stock. Some news
papers have printed the story, and In
addition many letters and wires have
been deceived from our dealers stating
such rumors were In circulation. It
Is, therefore, desired to make as pub
lic as possible a statement authorized
'by an officer of the company that there
is absolutely no foundation for the
Judge Hough, In the Federal District
Court in New York has ordered the re

Savannah Will Get
Big Races Next Year
Washington motorists who attended
the three racing carnivals at Savannah
are delighted with the news that the
Georgia city has again been awarded
the two racing events the Vanderbllt
Cup and the Grand Prize races. Thee
blue ribbon events of the motor world
always attract many stars. The mini
mum entry list for each race must be
twelve cars. Probably the most suc
cessful Vanderbllt and Grand Prize
races ever run were conducted by the
Savannah Automobile Club, and when
these events are staged again the gre.it
est crowd that has ever witnessed an
automobile race In this country will 0
on hand to cheer the winners.
REPAIRING OF CAR BEST ENGINEERS
AGAIN ATTRACTS SAY CARS OF TODAY
It's Not Curiosity, .Though,
As in Days of Old,-
"Do you remember the time when an
automobile would attract a crotvd If al
lowed to stand beside the curbing In the
street." remarked a veteran automobile
dealer. "And do you 1 remember the
time when. If a man had to make re-
pairs there would be enough spectators
gathered In a few minuses to make It
necessary to call out the police re
serves? Of course, you do. That time
was not long ago,
"Then followed a period when the
sight of a man making repairs on his
motor car attracted no more than
passing comment. But-jiow It seems
the old days are returning, to some ex
tent, at least. Once again the sight of
a man on the broad of his back under
a car attracts a crowd. When a man
finds lt necessary to change, a tire a
gallery quickly gathers.
"In the old days It was because an
automobile was a genuine curiosity. In
the present time lt is because the sight
of a car that needs waslde repairs Is
a genuine curiosity. As- automobiles In
creased In number and excellence, less
and less repairs became necessary.
"Finally, in this enlightened age, so
few repairs In the open air are neces
sary that the sight is a rarity and the
unfortunate motorist who does have
to tinker with his car on the streets
or roads is so unusual that lt is small
.wonder that all pause to stare at him."
Name for New Body
Washington Motorists' Association will
be the name of the new organization
that Is to betormed to take the place
of the Automobile Club 'of Washlngtoq.
This was decided at a meeting last
night of the committee recently appoint
ed to draw" up a constitution and by
laws for the proposed organization.
The committee, of which W. S. Duvall
IS chairman, met at the Grafton and
drew up a tentative draft of the articles
that will govern the association. These
will be submitted to a big rally meet
ing nf -the motorists of the-city to-be
held during the latter part of this
month. At this rally a permanent or
ganization will be perfected.
A call for the meeting will be issued
by Harrington. Mills as soon as a suit
able meeting place can be, obtained.
Motor Slang Is -Limited;
Chauffeur Not Original
When a battery Is weak the proper
procedure Is to "put her on the mag.'
If the driver of a four-cylinder car falls
to gcf. his motor to fire on the normal
rvimplempnt nf rvllnrlera he describes it
as "hUUrigoritKree". or '.'fwoi as the
case may be. Sometimes he may be
''hitting-only on one," but that condi
tion cant keep up ror long.
The car which; Is normally equipped
with but one. cylinder, of which there
are so ew nowadays; wasMong tago
christened, the "one-lunger. When a
car fails to yield its fulTjiower or'stops,
lt "dtes.'N Slmllarlyito stall a motor Is
to ''klll'Mt'- -.,., '
But inline -.main .-the , slang of the
chauffeur Is. the slang; of. the street. He
has not the Inventive genius to build
up new sets of phrases for describing
things, and In the fe respects where
operations are peculiarly those' of self-
propelled motor vehicles, he Is apt to
borrow from semi-technical language
and let it go at that.
Winter Runs Popular
Winter runs, which are being planned
by many motorcycle clubs throughout
the country, demonstrate that the mo
torcycle. Is an all-the-year-round ma
Fair skies and summer breezes are
appreciated by motorcyclists, but they
are not willing to forego the pleasures
of motorcycling Just because of snow

Betterment Being Made Air
the Time and Will Con
tinue, It Is Said.
In the opinion of the best engineers
in the automobile industry, the motor
cars of today. In a mechanical sense,
are really crude affairs as compared to
the automobile that will be -evolved, by
slow stages through the countless Im
provements which are made and which,
will bo created.
The gearless shifting devices, which,
do away with the shifting levers; tfc
demountable rims, which are now coa
mon; the self-starter, which does away
with the starting crank, and a score of.
devices, such as the valveless motor
and other appliances, which will serve
to make the motor car mechanically
fool proof, are changes which will be
brought about In the cars of the future
or have been brought about.
The driver of a car may now drop
his curtains In case of rain and make
his car a "poor man's limousine" -when
It Is necessary, but a year ago he had
to turn every one out Into the rata to

near future by a gauge on the dash- j
board Just how much gasolene la In his !
tank, and he may even now turn a
Yale key wlthhls clutch out and leave
his car safely anywhere, or be may
turn a key which cuts off power of
every, sort and makes the car safe
standing anywhere. Other similar de
vices which are being patented, aad
which will be patented,, will both add to

PLAN TO CONStOER
Manufacturers Seek: Method
to Check Constant! Ad
It win be a good opportunity for tht
many makers of automobiles when the)
are gathered at the automobile showi
which open In New Tork tonight for a
two-week run to talk over the gasolene
situation and determine If they can dt
anything. and if so, whit? ,
All over the country gasolene prices
are rising, for what reason Is not appar
ent to all, although supply and demand
are the much quoted whcreXcn-08 of th
thing. Whatever the causes, IV Is- pretty
clear that supply and demand have II
all figured out up to pretty close to a
cents a gallon wholesale. The present
price in Washington Is IBM cents a
From New Tork comes the .news thai
the garage men are Intending soon U
raise the storage charges in order t
offset the gasolene. They do not want
to charge the motorist any more tfaaa
they do now for his motor fueL because
he could do better at stations out-ride,
and no doubt would do so. Therefore
thelr defense is to increase the storage
It is a serious situation with, the
motorist and the manufacturer of auto
mobiles too; far more Important t
them than other matters of regulation.
And thus far what they have dona t
make things better for themselves l
little or nothing. The situation of tht
small automobile concern struggling fot
Its livelihood against bigger and more
able manufacturing, rivals Is made even
more acute by the gasolene proposition.
Take Rapid Strides
That marked strides have been mad?
the past season In the manufacture oi
automobile accessories will be made
quite evident at the automobile shows
in New Tork next week. There ar
thousands ot motor car enthusiasts
who can talk "car" for hours at a
stretch enthusiasts who have no con
nection with the automobile Industry,
and who flatter themselves that they
know all the up-to-date features Of
automobiles, but the biff shows hold
some decided surprises In store fot
these motor "fans."
