while eager and anxious to add to its
strength throughout thu state could
not come here to promote such an or
ganization until after such a time as
the motorists of the county had made
k It clear they desire such a club.
i However, a number of automobile
owners In Mt, Vernon and Knox coun

Object Is Protection
The object ot an automobile cjub
primarily Is protection to life car own
er. Hy combination the motorists'huvo
been able to limit the operation of
automobile thieves; when a car is i
stolen the club will lend its assistance
In its recovery.
The motorist; are opposed to speed
traps, a method by which some.i un
scrupulous officials have mado utfe
to their profit and to the financial loss
The dlssemlnatfou-of automobile in
formation, routes, state of the -roads,
etc. will be at the command of mem
bers. In a limited way this service
has been given by the C. of C. but
through the cjub it may be largely ex
tended. The influence of the club may
be directed effectively toward secur
ing better roads and streets and In
Through affiliation with the state
association weight may be brought to
bear to keep the legislature from pass
ing offensive and obnoxious laws affecting-
automobllists. There is i-ea-son
to believe an attempt will be made
at the coming session of the legisla
ture to secure the passage of a law
placing a three-cent tax on gasoline.
This will be. fought to the last, ditch
by the state association.
' Other bills said to be contemplated
to bo offered provide for the licensing
of all drivers, for physical, mental and
eye examinations, and for the increase
of the automobile license fee. ' All
these will be opposed by the state as
