poration, distributor of the Maxwell
car throughout the west, has indorsed
the suggestion of Francis M. Hugo,
secretary of state of New York, for the
installation of some kind ot plate for
motor trackways on the rtate high

months of observation of the effect of
the increased traffic over the state
highway leading out of San Francisco
since the system was opened for vehi
"Many persons are familiar with the
fact that plateways are often used
over bridges and certain other places,
where heavy material is hauled," says
Toner, "but the public is not so well
is actually used by the vehicles which
pass over it. Take for instance, the
state highway south of this city; tire
markings of both hcrse drawn and
motor driven vehicles stand out in
marked contrast to the balance of the
highway, proving conclusively upon the
slightest observation that only a small
portion of the highway is actually
"Yet when the road has to be re
paired or renewed the whole width
has to be dealt with, as mere patching
in most cases cannot be regarded as
the most practical method of mainten

prepared tracks would save an im
mense amount of repair and wear.
These tracks could be made of special
material, continuously smooth in char

bear nearly all of the traffic and would
lengthen the life of the highway ten
"When one considers the rapid in
crease every year in the number of
automobiles alone that use our state
highway, one can readily appreciate
what this means in wear. The Maxwell

of the rapid growth in the number of
new owners. The factory allotment
