Seasoned Drivers Fail to
Make' Allowance for
Faults of Novice.
As a result of several recent In
vestigations Into accident causes in
which it was shown that collisions
often result from the Inability of sea
soned drivers to make allowances for
the shortcomings of beginners, the ac
cident prevention department of the
Chicago Motor club ha* outlined for
motorists some suggest I cas as to safe
guarding car users through better un
derstanding between drivers.
Special Recommendations. —
The recommendations of especial Im
portance are as follows;
"Whenever a driver seems to be
usurping the right of Way at an in
tersection when be Is not entitled to
do so It Is safer to assume that he la
Inexperienced and not • willfully dis
many motorists seek to 'teach others
a lesson' at the wrong time, and the
Inevitable result Is an accident
"The proper time to teach the new
driver the rules of the game Is be
fore he has to apply them. The ex
perienced driver who leads the be
ginner into believing that the only
way to learn to drive Is to enter heavy
traffic and *slnk or swim' Is only en
couraging the worst form of reckless
Willfully Reckless Driver.
"The willfully reckless driver may
change his mind at the last moment
and avoid trouble simply because he
drives well enough to know how to
avoid It, but the Inexperienced driver
bas no such advantage.
"There Will be about 1,000,000 new
drivers this year If ear sales con
tinue at the present rate. Although
skill in operation of the car Is an
easier matter to acquire by reason
ef the great Improvement In controls,
traffic conditions are more complicated
than at any time In Hie history of the
automobile and knowledge of rules of
driving and courtesy has never been
more Important. In view of present
conditions the experienced motorist
cannot afford to mistake ordinary In
experience for willful recklessness."
Proper Tire Equipment
for the Vacation Trip
The motorist who starts on a va
cation trip without proper tine equip
ment Is likely to Bud that be has
been penny wise and pound foolish.
Nothing so quickly ruins the pleasure
of a vacation trip as tire trouble. Re
pairing tires out In a broiling sun Is
anything but fun, and, besides this,
it causes delay which many times up
sets schedules and definite plans.
If a motorist has to purchase tires
■t some mountain or canyon resort
he usually finds that freight and ex
tra profit have been tacked on. so
that the price is extremely high.
By carrying two or three spare
tires, depending, of course, upon the
length of the trip, the vacationist Is
prepared in case of punctures or
blowouts to quickly change and pro
ceed on his way. The safest course
of all is to put the new tires on the
wheels and use the old tires as
•pares. There is much less likelihood
of puncture In a fresh new casing
than there Is In a thin, worn tire.
Tuba Vulcanizing
It often happens that in vulcaniz
ing a tube, particularly in the open
air, the rubber is burned. This may
be obviated by making a collar about
four Inches high to fit around the
vulcanlzer, using several thicknesses
of ordinary wire mosquito netting,
fastened together with a couple of
rivets of wire run through. This
should be placed over the vulcaniser
Just before lighting the gasoline.

Constant Driving Will
Keep Car in Good Trim
"1 don't believe I can drive that
far In a day." says the typical motor
ist, contemplating a 300-ml le Jump.
"Pm not in trim."
And yet this same motorist will
expect his car to" take him any dis
tance any time regardless of whether
it la In trim.
The ear that la going day and night
always is ready for the long trip. Or
the hard trip, because it has to be In
good condition to stand* gb* daily
grind. The oar that is" sever really
ready is the one that stands In the
garage ail week. It may bare a wa
ter leak, or its carburetor may not be
adjusted for the change in the weath
er. Cars are like their drivers In a
great many respects, and the toatter
of. being In trim is one of them. Ex
ercise is vitally essential to good serv
ice from a car.
This Ik deafly demonstrated when
a car has been In storage for a long
period. Everything Is stiff when the
car starts. Things do not work at
their best Tires are low, springs are
rusty, even the stale gas in the tank
makes the engine loggy. The car
that is in trim never acts this way.
It Is always ready, always capable
of meeting the demands.

Accidents Prevented by
Proper Control of Horn
The Inexperienced "Sunday driver"
type of motorist thinks the only thing
the horn Is for Is to play a never-end
ing concert In the ears of pedestrians.
Horn control Is a fine art and its
proper use can prevent accidents.
Excessive use of the horn indicates
à novice driver, bur Its proper use
shows the veteran. The novice relies
upon his horn to keep others out of
danger. The veteran relies upon bis
control of the car. He slows down

doesn't toot bis horn and force them
to Jump. The novice has to rely
upon hts noise maker because In nine
cases out of ten he is outdriving his

Whale Meat Sent to

In his annual report the chief sani

who had complained of disagreeable

Harris, for some time.
It appears, says the Inspector, that
the Industry was Inaugurated by the
late Lord Leverhulme, of Lever Bros.;
which Arm has fishing and othèr in
