Dodge Brothers Leads Off

BY u HITCOMB W ll LI .Mv
, DETRIT. Mich . Sept 30 --Automobile
manufacturers as a whole have
(rut aside the coal and railroad situa
tion and are preparing not only for a
record production for several weeks
of the present year but for record
IbreaklQg expansion In 1923.
Dpdge Ilroibers led Off with the an
inounoement of an addition to their
i plant that would increase the capacity
f0 per rent. This addition will cost
close to J2.000.oijo. it is learned on
good authority that at leant seven or
eight other great automobile and body
plants will soon announce expansion
j A few months a?o It was the con
sensus of opinion that the present fa
Icillt'.es would be equal to the demands
for at 'least two years to come. In
vestors nnd financial concerns looked
, f or a lull In business, but this opinion
jhu-s been changed and no let up of Im
portance in the industry Is anticipated.
The Packnrd company has a pro
gram In view which will make its 1923
(output greater than any year In his
tory This means increased facilities,
i The Hupp Motor company Is adding a
.plant which will provide for a 30 per
cent Increase in production and the
iStudebafcer will add at least &o per,
ceBI to Its piesenc plant capacity, ac
cording to advices from South Bend.
One of tho largest uddltlons to Its al
ready great plants will be that of the
Fisher Body corporation, which for
many monfJis has been working at ca
Ipadty and still Is far behind l:i orders
Two million dollars will go Into a
, The Dulck Company, a subsidiary of!
General Motors. Is rushing to comple
tion Its Detroit assembly plant, which
(will add 60 per cent to Its productive
capacity, and the Durant Motors Is
expected to make an early announce
ment of the acquisition of it factory
rsUe for tho erection of new plants
i The former Saxon Motor plant is be
lng fitted up as an addition to the
Columbia Motors company, and slm
illar acquisitions are reported from
'other lesser producers.
All this new building activity Is un
mistakable evidence of unexpected
prosperity. Several companies h;ive
resumed dividends after suspension
Ol payment, for over eighteen months.
The recent price cutp have not ma
terially reduced profits, for those cuts
have been distributed between the
manufacturers, the suppliers Of parts
and the producers of raw materials
increaseu sales due to cuts are per-1
milting volume production which will
sustain profit margins throughout the
w hole year.
97 PER CENT OF CAR
Ninety-seven per cent of automo
bile drhers are careful, according to
Inspectors of the Pennsylvania rail
road, who checked 30.378 cars at
grade crossings In five sta'es. The edu-
Icatlonal campaign of the automobile
Industry, the cross crossings cautlous-
'l drive of the railroads and the ef
forts of many othei organizations are
j being pushed to eliminate ihe 3 per
tnt of careless drivers.

A car neods a bath frequently, es
pecially If it Is a new car. Lack of

looks of a machine. The varnish on

When an nuto Is driven over a dusty
or muddy road, so that It Is more or
less covered with dirt of one kind or
another, it should hi- wnshed without
delay. That is. It should be washed
I before the mud has had a chance to
harden, If this. Is possible. But tne
hood should not be washed until the
engine has had time to cool off a
The equipment needed properly to
wash a car should Include two clean I
soft ponifcs, two pood iz-d palls,
several soft chamoin skins, some flan
nel cloth, a cake of pun soap, clear
running water, a hose without a nozzle,
ion It and a soft duster.
Being thus equipped the owner is
! prepared to wash his car effectively.
Th; flrnt thing to do Is to remove all
Ithe dirt i hut Is possible by applying
a slow Stream of cold water. Then
talto a pall of water and sponge and
wash the car carefully and thorough
ly, if he finds grease spots, which
are especially likely to lodire on the
chassis he should use a little kero
sene to remove them.
Now he Is ready to wash with an
jother sponge, soap and water. This
process should be quickly followed
, with a good rinsing and In turn by ai
drvlnc with the aid of a substantial
Iflannol cloth. Polishing with a ha
niols completes th operation unless
tho owner wishes to brighten tip the
'paint and varnish with a body polish.
In polishing up a car It Is Impor
tant to gel some material that la
known to be efficient. Certain oily
polishes tend to soften the varnish and
affect the surface so that It Is Impos
sible to paint them without scraping
off all the original coat of nalnl.
When a car Is covered with dust it
is preferable to play a hose on the
'surface rolhnr than to brush off the
jdlrt with a dry clolh. In Using dust
ers avoid those made of feathers as
they scratch the surface.
It is not beneficial for the surface
of an automobile to let It stand for a

sun. The Vafrnlsh tends to check un
