Florida Citizens Protest
Because of Heavy Court
Fee-ci abbing officials who prey up
on the motor tourists for petty vio
lations of the law Merc denounced In,
no uncertain terms nt a mass met ting
'f Florida citizens hold at Clearwater,
Florida, In response to u call issued 1
by tho Clearwater Motor cluh. affil
iated with the A. A. A. Citizens from
Jacksonville, Tampa and St. reters
burg were present at th meeting.
Cltlz'ns of Clearwater charged that
arrests of motorists for petty offences
had been so flagrant and the so-called
costs in the case so high that tour-1
Ista were deliberately routing their
trips so as to avoid passing through'
Pinellas county. Hundreds of com
plaints had been filed regarding the
abuse the fee system by officials;
In this county and when F. A. Parker, j
nianax'.r of the Clearwater Motor Hub,
a!b-d r . mass meeting to protf.si
against methods In force In Pinellas'
conniy the courthouse was packed. I
One Justice of the peace whose!
"costs" in certain cases had been ,-vs;
iiigh ae 116.15. making a fine of 81 j
and costs amount to $17.45, was suf
ficiently Impressed with the purposo
of tho meeting as to promise to throw
out all petty cases coming before the
court. He explained, however, that
the deputies and other officials work-,
ed on fe.s and that they would prob-j
ably eontlnue to be sealOUS about
maicing arrests until some action Is
tak n t.i iii.rt these fees to the use
of the state.
Mr. Parker declared at the con
clusion of the meeting that a con
certed effort of Florida A. A. A. clubs
would be made to Induce the legisla
ture to pass a law turning all fines
and. costs over to tho state for roan
Improvement. He declared that th
foe system is at the bottom of most of I
these petty arrests and that It should
be attacked at its source.
This question will come up in sev-1
eral stat-t legislatures next year, ac-'
cording to A. A. A. national officials.
Thoro Is a concerted movement In
many of the state9 to eliminate that
elass of offiel.il who works on the so
called fee basis and to replace him
with an offlt-ial who will give some
attention to tho more serious crimes
committed In his community and riot
spend his tlmo looking for some in

happens to have gone out.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 30. "The car

Secretary of Commerce Herbert
Hoover, has just madf public a report
from Walter S. Tower, commercial at
tache at London, which tells of the
Brlilsh penchant for low-priced can
His report 6ays
"Tho recent London motor show re
vealed the fatt that British producers
are putting Innumerable itght iow-
prlcod cars on the marl t In order to
supply a motor vehicle for tho million
American cars retailing foi the same
prices arc far superior and should find
an ever widening market.
"The real feature of the show was
the prevnlencve of light. low priced,
ears, which have been launched In
greater numbers than ever before
partly to offset the effects of heavy
taxes and high costs of operation and
partly to meet the price of competi
tion of importad cars, especially from
tho United States, Canada, and
France. Kvery booth had Its group
of Interested visitors, a good many of
whom looked like potentlol buyers, but
the dense crowds were around the
booths with models selling under 500
pounds and rating up to eighteen and
"A good many of the so-railed pop
ular models Sell mainly from J 7 5 to
350 pounds, If olio regards au auto

portation, for either business or pleas
ure, any one of tho American cars
selling here under 500 pounds oft, 1-5
far more of real SUtORlOblh ulue for
the money invested than can bi- found
In local products selling at about tno
samo prices. It is difficult to see
where tho money has gone In the mak
ing of most cars of the cheapest class
that Is. ranging from tho lowers at
160 pounds up to "75 pouuds for it
must be remembered that these pric

among manufacturers, dealers and tiv.
show management has been a big fac
tor in arranging tho prcllmlnarle3
for the big exhibition of motor cars.
With eighty-one different makes of
automobiles and morf than 300 acces
sory manufacturers listed as exhib
itors, the National Automobile shows
of New York and Chicago will be th.'
biggest automobile exhibitions ever
presented In this country.
The New York show will be held
January 6 to 1 and tho Chicago op

Regiment armory, will be held Janu
ary 27 i" February 3. Both displays I
are under the direction of the Na

merce, The Grand central palace wri
again house the New York show In !lo
One of the features of tho national
show this year Is tho wonderful array
of accessories. The total number of
b Ices, big and little, that go to help
! the motorist to not only run his car,
but also in many Instances to add ti
its appearance, breaks all records. Un-
; doubtedly there will be many ncr
things on view, but, like car builders,
the accessory manufacturers keep
j their plans under cover until the show
For the show the four floors of tho
palace that will ho occupied contain

Bigger, brighter, more Interesting
than ever, Is the promise that Is held
out for the 1923 show. It s tho samo
promlso that was made for the show
I of a decade ago, and every other an
jnual display before ard since. And,
I strangely enough, the yearly display
1 Invariably has lived up to the opti
I mletlc predictions of Its sponsors,
j Since the far gone days In the early
part of the century no National Auto
I mobile show has ever failed to provide !
la wealth of entertainment not only
fro the man who drove a car, but!
equally so for the man who hoped to. I
Right now a full house Is assured. It I
has always been so: It probably always
will be. The annual review Is an as
sured suooess because its appeal is -ts
wide as the country' Itself.
The visitors to the show of 1923 may
go with the consciousness that ho Is
for the first time paying homage to
the world's greatest Industry. The
production of motor cars and their
accessories lms gradually crept uo
from the modest figures of early years
until at the present time the Industry
has gone into a leading place In th
I ountrys commercial standing.
W hether or not the coming exposi
tion will disclose anything revolu
tionary or radical will remain a secret
until the doors of the. palace are
thrown open on January 6. In every
factory throughout the country tor
month past the brains of the automo
tive Industry havo been engaged In th;
design and production of models for
l'j'3. Anyway from the drop forges,
the whirring wheels, and from all the
distractions of a noisy plsnt. tho de
signers have evolved Ideas of refine
ments thct will mark the cars to be
It Is conceded that the coming dis
play will be dominated by the closed
types of cars. More and more the
motorist Is ovlnclng his deslro for the
acme of travel typified by tho limou
sine, the sedan, the coupe and the
various combinations of these three
standard types put out with more or
less whimsical names
Protection from the weather, when
protection Is needed, explains tho
great and grov. Ing popularity of th?
closed car, taken In con Junction with
improved body design, which In balmy
weather permits of all the advantages
of an open model.
Each year has brought greater lux
ury of Interior fittings and upholstery
to such a pronounced degree that even
the lowest priced ears have needed o I
make no apology for their lack of rid -
I ing comfort It is safe to assume that I
the models In the Palace show will i
demonstrate superiority over all pre
vious efforts In this line.
The accessory makers confine their
new products to no particular tlmo of
the year, but most important one3
are usually reserved for the National
show. Many hundreds of accessory
exhibitors are already listed, and tho
motorist will find a journey among
the displays quite as fascinating and
Informative as In previous years. And
he is certain to find some surprises.
Tho automotive Industry faces th
coming year with extreme optimism
and confidence, For this Industry, at
leant, the period of reconstruction ha
practically ended. Despite their uni
versal utility, motor cars were the
mat iu rcuti iu me uooamons caus?a
by the high cost of materials and I
labor during the war period.
Car prices have been stabllled. even I
though slowly; tho Industry -is just
i losing a year that has been amazing
in th volume of production and sales,
and there Is every' Indication that the
j anting year will start and end In a
, blaze of glory. Not only are general
aditlons Indicative of continue!
I prosperity, but there Is every evidence
in it the public la in a frame of mind
to accept the modern car as tho high
est expression of design that may bo
, M.e-tod for sumo ttme to come.
Tho motorist who In past joars has
visited the New York and Chicago
shows prepared to view tho most
radical Innovations will be satisfied fa
January if tho now cars show dla
tlnctivs refinements. That this will
!" th case there Is no doubt, but no
one looks for any drastic novelties in
Tho expectation ts general that body
d o-ns and fittings will prove to th
the most engrossing feature of tho
coming exposition. Greater compact
ness to make motoring easlar and
safr In these days of crowded streots,
and oven country roads, Is promised
Also, because of Increasingly denso
traffic, tho method of putting brakes
on all four wheels makes a strong ap
peal, and several curs thus equlppea
are likely to bo dlsplnyod. Most of

they may disclose them when the

distinction, according to Sauzedde. Ho
