ceive financial assistance from the

month, which may be applied to the
living expenses. All R. O. T. C. stu

uniforms by the War Department.
The amount has not been fixed for
the coming session, but it is expect
ed that it will be sufficient to cover
at least half the cost of the service
No obligation rests upon the
graduate of the Advanced Course.
Membership in the Advanced
Course amounts practically to a two

penses except books.

The Common Average.
No stronger evidence of the im
portant fact that the Ford Motor car
has become a veritable part of the
life of the people, could be asked for
than is given in the registration rec
ords of the various states which com
prise our country.
For instance, in the month of Jan
uary there were 11,450 cars of all
makes registered in the State of
Montana, of which 5,790 were Ford
Cars. This means one Ford car for
every other car, of every make and
130 over. This proportion is very
evenly maintained in the other forty
seven state?. There are more than
(5,000,000 motor cars in operation in
the United States, more than one
half of which are Fords.

Washington, June 6.-Senai
Dial has under discussion with 1
post-office department the establi
ment of parcel post routes in Soi
Carolina and is also investigati
neighborhood co-operative assoc
tions for motor transportation a
marketing. He has some hope of ?
ranging to have the adaptability
the latter to conditions in his o^
State tried out through the operati
of one or two demonstration rout
in co-operation with the federal t
reau of markets. ^r>: cr^
Secretary Houston, a graduate
?the University of South Carolina, h
responded with cordial interest a:
has offered Senator Dial the bene
of data gathered by the departme
of agriculture. He says in a letter
"The bureau of markets has co
ducted an investigation of the pos!
bilities of motor transportation f
rural districts and it has co-operafr
with the local interest in several se
tions in the establishment of demo
stration routes where transp?rtate
facilities are inadequate. As a rest
of this work, two bulletins on mot
transportation have been issued.
"It might be well for the comme
cial organizations of the places yi
mention to consider, uii their own ir
tiative, the feasibly of establishir
motor truck routes through the se
tions you have in mind. If they shou
decide to do this, the experts of tl
, bureau of markets will be glad to rei
der all possible assistance in an ai
. visory way."
Admirable surveys of accomplis!
i ments and prospects in this field ai
i contained in the two new publicatioi

They are: Bulletin 770, "Mote

, ket surveys, and Farmers' Bullet)
i 1032, "Operating a Cooperative M(
tor Truck Route," by H. S. Yohe, a?
6istant in market surveys; both ai
paring as publications of the Deparl
ment of Agriculture, Washington.
Senator Dial believes that South
Carolina has several areas well pop
ulated and productive, but lacking in
transportation and marketing facili
ties, where neighborhood co-opera
tion might be successfully applied a
long lines which experiments else
where under supervision of federal
experts have proved sound. The sena
tor in this connection said he regret
ted very much to note that some half
dozen counties in his state had been
unable to qualify for federal aid in
Pour important factors must be
considered in judging whether a giv
en community offers a field for co
operative motor transport: (1) The
volume of farm products grown along
the contemplated route; (2) the vol
ume of miscellaneous hauling which
would supplement regular loads; (3)
competition from other carriers which
would be encountered; (4) the char
acter of the highways over which the
trucks must operate. These factors
will determine the success or failure
of any rural route.

far the cheapest hose you can buy, for it will last from
six to eight seasons, which mean? an average of about
3c. to 4c. per foot a season. While you can get a hose
for 10c. you know as a rule the 10c. hose will last you
about one season. With an order for 50 feet or more of
garden hose we give a lawn sprinkler.
