ON MANY RACING CARS Spencer Wishart's Mercer. Equipped with This Accessory. Probably Was Fastest American Machine. When K.ldle Pullen flashed across the line winner in the Corona road race. there was broken into bits the world's road race record for 300 miles, which hss stood for more than two years. Not satisfied with breaking the record. Patten smashed it by exactly nine miles p. r hour. in. leasing It from TS.T miles per hour to K7.T miles per hour. No such ad- ;ince as thla In automobile speed records nas ueen mane iwr a ivun uhit. Among those who are particularly rl asrd with this record-breaking suc cess are the manufacturers of the Ray tield carburetor, with which all Mercer racing car." have been equipped this year. The speed of the Merc rs has been well known all season, arid It was long agreed among drivers that if ever one of those curs at through a race with reasonably good luck, it would surely win. At Elirin the speed of Spencer Wishart's Mer.er. which was also Rayfleld equipped, was sensational. It is prob al ly the fastest American-built car. On the first day of the Elgin races, the Mercer was leading by close to ten min utes, when the gas tank was torn loose by a tire which was carried in the rear. The following day the same car was ::gain far In the lead when the accident occurred whir i killed Wisliart and put the Mercer completely out of running. Credit to Carbaretor. The Mercer drivers gave a large share m credit for their successes to the Ray-I,- hi carburetor. The dazzling speed which the cars possess is not. of course. the result "f carburetion alone, but the drivers all believe that the excess speed. which save them the ability to pass their ,-ompetitors at will, was largely due to Bayfield efficiency. ii ha; been rv great racing year, and titi- tremendous record set hy Pullen at li,. eKise is a fitting climax to a long, successful season.

HENRY FORD'S CO-OPERATIVE SPIRIT INCORPORATED IN LOCAL AUTO CONCERN Policy Will Introduce Unique Service, Available at All Hours, With Minimum Cost to the Motorist. Tli. influence of the co-operative .-pint of Henry Ford has had a direct hearing on the Washington motorists, .-specially on Furd car users. M. A. Hav'es. formerly General Manager of the local Ford agency, has been progressive enough to appreciate the tremendous success ot Mr. Ford and his profit sharing plan, which has not only bene fited the Ford Motor Company and its employes, but has, enabled the buying public to save thousands of dollars eacli ear in purchasing ntw cars. He has practlca'ly eliminated competition with low price cars, due to the fact that he has the best men in his organization, which give the best they have for a re ward that is worth striving for. Mr. l!:.yles is thoroughly conversant with the Ford owners, and has taken a long lease nu the Stumph l.yfoul Building. Kill-;-" Massachusetts avenue northwest, with a garage entrance on K street northwest, to be' operated under the name of the Record Auto Supply Service Company, cwned by W". F. Hale and M. A. Bayles. Mr. Hale formerly held a mail contract in this city, but government ownership absorbed this contract. Mr. Hale figures that the nearest business he could eav-S'-e In next to thv universal necessity of postal service Is In caring for the uni versal use of Ford cars. This new con " rn has not spared time or money In s;ablishing not only one of the finest garages and Ford service stations In tMa Ity. but have completely equipped this tlve-story building to 100k after every med of the Ford car users. The plant will render satisfactory servl e twenty four hours a day, at regular day rates. When you stop to think of it. the aver M use of our car is not over seventy hours of the one hundred and sixty-eight hours each week. Consider the compara ti' elv short time your ear Is in use with I he number of hours it stands idle. Th Beeard Compan.Cs policy will be to se.-v on at your I'omciiicnc. anl not le.juirc ou to pay a premium for the- work. i"tr: department of the entlri plant NOTES CONCERNING THE MOTORCYCLISTS The New Jersey Motorcycle Club sill I hold Its annual sociability run uu New !

Hi personal I visit was slso prompted by the desire to learn how the Firestone factory . makes the tires which have, by their 1 1 pant performance, used him to stake ' ! his faith In them for next season's races. 1 Cooper i one . of the topnoichers among speed kings, having distinguished himself many times in the past two years. The Montamara Festo race at Ta- com.i on July 5, 1913. was one of Cooper's On August J. isrt he prize packages also won the Santa Monica race, driv- ing tt.. miles at the rale of TC.."i miles per hour. Harney oldllcld aon second place in this race. The annual Corona race on September 9. 191". was another one of Cooper's triumphs, when he drove i"i0 miles on a high-crowned track at the rate of 71.5 miles per hour. He entered the international speedway event at Indianapolis last Decoration Iay, bi:t an accident compelled him to drop out early In the race. Cooper has many other victories and near-victories to his credit. Cooper is scheduled to engage Barney Oldiield In a fifty-mile race at Fresno, on Decemlxr 2T. to settle a friendly rivalry between them. The prize will be a gold horseshoe. This unique trophy Is the result of many months of good natured repartee between the two. When Cooper beat Barney at Santa Monica, Itarnev accused him of stealing his good luck horseshoe. Since then, this imagin ary horseshoe has been a friendly bone of contention between them until they finally decided to have It out. Barney also uses Flrestones. Cooper will race at Ban Diego on Jan uary 9. From San Diego he will go to San Francisco to complete In the Van derbilt Cup race on the Panama-Pacific Exposition grounds.

ARMY BUYS QUADS Signs Indicate Wotherspoon's Recom mendation for Bigger Army Will Be Adopted. An uncertainty about the great fight In Europe being a gasoline war was com pletely removed by Irvln rl. Cobb's re cent Interview with lard Kitchener. In which the English army head inquired anxiously about the German supplies of gasoline. Germany s supply of gasoline Is neces sarily imported, for there are no natural oil wells In that country. Benzol, a sub stitute for gasoline, cannot be made in large enough quantities. England? present mastery of the seas precludes the possibility- of receiving fresh supplies of gasoline from America, except through Holland and the Scandinavian countries: and these sources are being rigidly su pervised, as fsr as possible, by the fleets of the allies. Russia's oil fields will nat urally be conserved for the use of the Czar's subjects, unless Turkey can suc ceed in her campaign against Batoum. And the very fact that Germany per suaded the Turks to enter the war at thla point Is additional evidence of the supreme Importance of a gasoline supply in a war waged under modern conditions. How fast the world Is moving Is well indicated by the trend of recent wars. The Brltlsh-Boei war In South Africa witnessed the Introduction of motor trucks on a small scale, al though the automobile was very much of an experiment In those days. Th recent Balkan Wars emphasized the desirability of motors along a battle front extending upwards of 100 miles. The present war. leaves no doubt what soever about Itt absolute necessity for motor trucks and aiitomobilea The hrae is already !econdai y in ; importance in modern warfare, his chi-f ues tMn; for cavalry and for haultna- artillery, ammunition and sup ply wajrons. etc., when motor truck? cannot be obtained. I'nder the rigors of war horses die in Immense numbers. The South African war. with less than S0n. 000 soldiers employed, killed over 400.000 horses on the Kritish side alone or. roughly, on horse for eah man. In the European war there are about j IS.OOO.na soldiers under arms. One shudders to think of the mortality In i horses If the British experience In I South Africa is repeated: It is sagging the question to say that European war conditions are not , as severe on horses as the Transvaal. Sherman's definition of war U as true 'now as it was In 1SC1-45. Witness, for ! example, the following passage from a letter written by a German army of- j ftcer in Belgium: "Our ill-fed hors are dropping to the jrrouad in an appalling manner, ex haunted with the Ktraln they have had to undergo." Further confirmation is afforded by the insistent demand from Kurope for motor trucks, automobile!, and gaso line. Hornes, loo. are being purchased by the tens of thousands, mainly for the use of IBM cavalry. Bui the most iMixious inquiries are for motor trucks. The chief demand, however, is for Qund trucks, which, because tin drive, basks and steer on all four wheels, can operate on the actual tiring line ' over the roughest kind of country, in . piscc even where horses cannot pill a load. I. 9. lra Bails liilv Ii is significant, in this conneciion, 'that the United States army is rapidly ! adding Quads to its transport service. Armored Quads, anu ordinary supply wngon Quads are going into service 'every month. There Is no secret about this among well-informed people, for it la a fact that the United States is far belter prepared for defense against foreign aggression than certain alarm ists give us credit for. There are signs, moreover, thai in spite of President Wilson's carefully worded statement about depending upon a citizen soldiery, the United states regular enlisted army will be increased at an early date, probably to trie 205,000 men recommended by Maj. Gen. Wotherapoon In his final report when retiring as Chief of .Staff of the American army. It la not Improbable, too, that by a system of reserve there will be provided a mobile force of iOO.OOO first-line troops equipped for a six months' campaign. This wss also recommended by the former army chief. But If this were done, the transporta tion equipment would be far from ade quate. Only by a system of subsidy lor army type Quad tracks, such as ob tains in Europe, could Uncle Sam pro vide against the .contingency of war, into which we might be plunged at any time during the present disturbance abroad. And we must not forget that every horse killed In Europe and every horse exported from America makes It Just that much more certain that our next war, too, must needs be a gasoline war. The Jeffery "Quad." which has been adopted by the United States army, and which I now In use en the Mexican bor der, will be placed on exhibition here In Washington soon, along with the com plete Jeffery Une of pleasure cars In the new salesroom whleti Is being com pleted for the Coombs-Howard Company, at Vermont avenue and H street north west.

ADVICE ABOUT TIKES. Protection of tires in the winter time, when many cars are laid up and not used, is again a timely subject, and these simple susjjestlons for care of tires and tubes are repeated, says William B. Holland, the AJax tire, agent. When cars are placed in dead storage for the winter months, it Is essential the tires also receive careful attention. If tlte tires remain mounted on the wheels, the car should be jacked up on all sides and the tires deflated by remov ing the valve insides from the valve. All cuts In the tires should then he thoroughly cleansed with gasoline to free them for any possille traces of oil. These cuts can then be repaired by Mlinc-in with some jood prparatien for Hi's por- The wheels should then be . overed to rroteel the tires from lisht and heat. New tires and inner tidies sl'ould also he treated In a similar manner. The main ihing to bear in mind is to have them properly covered and stored in a dark, cool place. . Baker Electrics Arrive. Two of the new WM Baker electrics, one a brougham and the other a coupe, ar rived this week at tho showrooms of the Cook Stoddard Company, in Connecti cut avenue. The new light Baker electric weighs one-half a ton less than most electrics, it Is claimed, and because of this fact it should be easier to handle In the congested business districts. Again. It has speed, twenty-three miles an hour being possible. Riding qualities are guar anteed by a light body hung low on a long chassis equipped in the rear with Cantilever springs The Baker coupe t? instantly convertible Into a two or three passenger car merely by folding back the front seats, which are of the disap pearing type, out of sight and out of the way. Thla is only one of the features, and several others are the frameless win dows. Invisible drip molding, fixed rain visor, mechanical window lifts, automatic circuit - breaker, automatic door switch for interior lighting, combination eight day clock and odometer, worm drive axie. and crown metal fenders. Mr. George Weaver, who has charge of the electric end of the Cook & Stoddard busi ness, says 'that from every standpoint thla new coupe Is the finest Baker elec tric ever made. " Bew Jeffery Agency. George T. . Howard and J. S. Coombs have formed the Coombs-Howard Com pany to handle the Jeffery line of trucks. Including the famous "Quad" truck and pleasure cars. Their salesroom will be located at Vermont avenue and H streets northwest, with a service station at 111 Vermont avenue. - Plan Independent Show.

With regard to other speedways, the management expresses itself as most op timistic. "It will all make for the b. i termenl of the game." is the statement of an officer. "Take Klgin. for example," he says. "Hundreds of people from In dianapolls annually go to Elgin because their interest has been aroused by the meet here. With Elgin it is the same, only vice versa. The more races over the country, the better the ail-around attendance, always provided, of course, that there is no conflict as to dates." GOOD HEALTH. j ihfm: WESTON. So many people h-ibitiialv feel mABs or less nuf of sorts for the f.w days following Christmas that Christmas ail ments have come to be recognized as a necessary aftermath of the festritles Of course, the children will always overeat themselves. If they were not allowed to eat all sorts of indigestible things, they would feel they were t. Ing cheated out of half the Joy or the gay Christmas season. As a matter of fact. It is not the children at all who make up the bulk of sufferers from rhriatmas complaints. It is the grown-ups who, simply through carelessly neRleciirg in subscribe to one simple rule of health, frequently find themselves more or less unhappy inside and more tired and run down physically at the end of the Christ mas holidays than before them. Of course, children do overeat them selves more often than grown people. They rejoice, however, in the possession of powers of recuperation whjch grown ups, even in the prime of life, can only look hack on with envy. Too much plum pudding, too many sausages with tursey. too many sweeis oeiween ineais. may bring on a sharp digestive upset, but in a few hours all traces of it have disappeared, and the one-time sufferer Is soon eager for more of the rich foods which caused him pain. With grown people after Christmas ail ments are not so much due to in discriminate eating of indigestible foods as to an utter neglect of any precau- J tlons to adapt their systems to the. new conditions which reign during the Christ mas holidays. Take the case of the average father of the family, who this year will leave all office work behind him for several days. How does the change affect him?
