Milliners Would
Establish Seasons
For Women's. Hats
Fluctuation* in Material
Price* Have Disrupted
Formt v ?Conditions; Sea?
sonable Sales Disappear
The campaign of the millinery trade
to bring: about t h i :-? year .-. distinctly
mid-winter season was characterized
yesterday by Harry S. Bernhard, presi?
dent of the Retail Millinery Association
of America and head of the millinery
department of Gimbcl Brothers, as an?
other link in the chain to bring back
the use of materials and fabrics in har
mony with tin- seasons.
"The recer.'. exhibit of women's hats
at the Hotel Astor in conjunction with
the fashion show of the Retail Milli
nery Association of America," he said,
"displayed headgear collected from the
museums that look ur had. some thre?
thousand year:--, it was evident thi .
the women of bygone days adorned
themselve? with headgear of whatever
material was available, and were un?
doubtedly happy with their crude dec
"But the woman of to-day has learned
other lessons, ?.ii?l her desires-in dress
are entirely different. As the materials
that are in use by the present-day
world were discovered, invented, pro?
duced and placed on th< market, good
sense naturally assigned each item to I
a season of the year ?stcnl with
the weather; straw and oth? light?
weight materials for th? hot days, vel?
vets and other woven f ibrics, furs, etc.,
for the cold period.
"The designers of Par and oi Hi -
lest of the fashion world ?volved won- ?
derful creations from the vast amount ?
of requisites at hand, and ?everything
was serene a:;?i proper. Bul compet?-j
tion came and millinery developed
into an immense industry that to-day*1
is one of the leading crafts of the mor- i
cantile world. It has problems, how- j
ever, that arc different from all other ;
lines, for no industry is more at the
mercy of fashion's whims.
"There is absolutely no intrinsic
value to millinery. Values fluctuate
continually, n'i?l much money is made
or lost'by the tura-, of fashion's favor.
Ofctimes merchants plunge on materials ?
that their judgment tells them will
prove to bo ::? strong demand, only toi
meet with disappointment. Money is'
lost, and they besin to seek for some?
thing to recoup their losses without
thoueht of season.
"In addition, after the first rush of
a season is over there is always h
temporary lull. Although expected, it.
is but natura! for manufacturers to
chafe a' delay. They produce new
styles with the idea of tempting the
buyer and keeping their plants active.
Thus the seasons are thrown all <>ut of
gear. There are many other cans,.
that have contributed, b??t al! of them
working in a suht!?1 manner have
gradually brought ?.bout a condition
that was untenable anil illo<rical. The
seasons were rushed so far ahead?that
finally winter goods were being shown
for summgr wear and vice versa. It
was eventually recognized thai it was
all wrong, that it was neither sound
nor logical. There was only one solu?
tion and that was organized effort. The
Retail Millinery Association <?!' America
was organized and began ploughing
n??w fields. Il was difficult work at
first, as all crusading pr? blems aro.
It seemed an impossible task, but we
knew that we were right. It was not
long before oth?sr branches of the in
duRtry gave their hearty and splendid
??ooperation and then results be^an to
"The summer campaign whs su< cess
ful beyond expectation. The summer
of 1919 found the feminine world
crowned with summer hats in perfect
tune with the season. The next step
is the producing and showing of proper
and timely fashions for winter wear."
S?eek Philadelphia Buyers
An intensive campaign to bring
Philadelphia manufacturers and buy
era into the Bush Terminal Sales,
Building here will be inaugurated to?
morrow morning. Seventeen heads of
departments of the building and their
assistants will leave New York for
Philadelphia to-night to begin the cam?
paign, which is expected to run for
three or four weeks. Mrs. ;?'. VV. Hoff
man, Ti. .1. Rich and Jame ? Taylor
have been designated as generals to
head the organization thai will can?
vass the Philadelphia district. More
than 40,000 manufacturers of'the types
of merchandise carried" in the Bush
Terminal Sales Building will be so
licited. The organization will make
Us headquarters al the Bellevuc Strn
ford Hotel. The Philadelphia Cham?
ber of Commerce and other trado

Lahor \V ould Tax Exports
A resolution adopted by the Central
Federated Union, demanding that Con?
gress impose '.:??;.vy export duties on
food, clothing and other essentials to
reduce the C03t of living, was for?
warded to Washington to-day by.labor
The preamble of the resolution sets
f'ojith that an artificial shortage exists,
brought about by activities of export?
ers and greed of profiteers. It further
states that it is the view of the 350,
000 organized workers represented by
the union that export taxes be imposed.
"In this move," said Edward I. Han?

of Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis,
Boston, Baltimore, San Francisco and

Tep Points That Drivers of
Motor Trucks Should Know
These Apparently Simple Queries Will <io Far to
Determine Condition of Whiele and Should Save
Money to the Owner of the lupiipment
II is cheaper to maint ain a motor
truck m perfect condition than it is
to operate one in .-','?, invalid state of
repair. The most successful operators
of truck (l"?'t.- arc those companies
who demand rigid inspections Prom
their mechanics ami who/ "catch
mechanical trouble before it start.-;."
Three factors which cut deep into
the profil;; of motor trucking and
which are directly traceable to la-;
inspection and lack of repair are:
decreased production caused by idle
truck, cost of repairs and new parts,
and discarding truck before i; has
delivered the mileage built into il.
The annoyance o? these three trucking
bugbears can be reduced to a minimum
bv ?nsnection.
The only way to discover mechanical
ailments is to inspect, and the most
efficient way i?< inspect is to formulate
a system of intelligently designed
questions which are to 1"- answered
daily by t he di ?vor.
The inspection must disclose ihe
location and nature ol the mechanical
trouble, but it would be too expensive
an item to thoroughly Inspect each
truck in a fleet daily. The driver
must be depended upon to furnish the
clue. This has been done most suc?
cessfully by the driver's answers to
ten simply but searching questions
printed on the back ol" his daily re?
port cards. These questions arc in
addition to his regular reports which
indicate work accomplished, time of
trips, supplies used. etc.
Here are the ten questions, answers
to which will furnish valuable tips for
thr night mechanic!'! experts to follow
I. Does I ruck lark power?
1!. Are brakes working proper?
3. Hires clutch engage smoothly?
t. Are lights working properly.'
.">. Is engin?- clean?
(i. Hoes truck squeak'.'
7. Does truck ral tie?
is. Are ?aheel bearings properly
ft. Does Irurk leak anywhere?
10. Is truck equipped with tir-1
At first planee ihre questions may
seem I oo . imp! e i o be o f va lue in
running down mechanical troubles.
For example, by going into the first
question "Does truck lack power?"

Q u ich Han din ig
In handling highly peri nable fruit
crops, notably peaches, motor trucks
arc being used to great advantage.
Fruit growers constantly are adding to
their truck equipment. As an instance,
the Miami Valley Fruit Company, of
Fort Valley, Ca., has purchased thirty
seven Whites in the last two years.
\l the largest nursery and peach
orchard "plant" in the United Slates.
Harrisons' Nurseries, at Berlin, Md.,
two White i rucks carry the entire crop
of 2,500 aeres of peach trees a crop

Have you ever had a blowout w!??W>
your car was standing still, after QC&J*

road? Or have you had the experience
of going out to your garage and find?
ing a perfectly flat tire? It was all
right, when you drove in, t'iie evening
before. Something had happened to it
over night.
You removed the tire and tube,
found the tube torn, and a clean break
' on the inside fabric of the tire. What
caused the fabric break? It is very
probable that it was started a week,
or even a month previous, when you
ran over a brick, a rut, or a hole in the
street, while going at high speed.
? Then again it may have been can ted,
