Oof ?ome time the company ha? VW demonstrating pneumatic tired tnicks on Its Akron 16 Boston ex press line and on lantr distance runs kcjtosa the country These testa which made the truck* famous from coast to "coast, proved that pneumatic tire 1 ? equipment protected the loads. in* sured greater speed and materially reduced the cost of operation.

PAGEL MOTOR ROUTES TO SOUTH ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION NOW Washington to Richmond. Formerly a Bug bear to Motorist, Now One of De lightful Rides to Southland. If ; udjr tells you that the road to fin- .jurat is rotten thia winter put i .11 that he went the wrong wH|r. ?n ip simply a chronio kioker." drclaf m Henry MacNalr. chairmen of the boitnl of director* of the Automo* bile Club of New York, who has Juat returned from a tour of inspection of motor routes to the south. "As a mat ter of fact,*' continues the road-boo ic publisher, "thar portion of the trip between Washington and Hlchmond. i which has afways been the bugbear of despairing tourlsta. is today In bet ter shape than wildest dreams could have fancied two years ago. Concrete now extends from Alexandria to Carrfp Humphreys at Accotink and belt of all, through the exigencies of waa. ! mother concrete stretch has taken the place of the bottomless mud scroaa Chopawamslo Swamp, where now no longer He in wait ronacience lesa banditti to aoak the hapless Pity driver who has not learned the trick of rtraddiing ruta." Indeed, so long has the superior person from Yankee-land r?Ut hia thumb to hia nose when Virginia loads are mentioned, that it aceins a sort of poetic Justice to he able to tell him that the worst pari of the whole trip thia year is between New York and Daltimore. on the direct route between the two cities. Mr. MacXair. however, has laid out a much better route to Washington which avoids all the big citiea and all the detours. While th? sug gested route is eigty mile* longer than the old way the difference is more than offset in point of time by I having no delay* of traffic or de toufs. The route rerommf,nd*?d \* from New York to tfaston. Allen town. Heading and I-Ancaster the first day. lfiS mile?. The second day one goes to Gettysburg. Frederick. Iiid^reville and Washington* 137 miles with splendid State roads all the way except tks first five miles after leaving the baftlefield of Oettrshuri? This may be avoided by turning south at Abbottstown vv??r a toll road to Hanover and Manchester, then over a wonderful Maryland Stat** road through West minster and West Friendship to Daltimore. Or if one wants to avoid th*1 Monumental City he will run west a few miles to Kidgeville and Join the Washington road. Both th*\^e routes will be shown In the ! new edition of the Atlantic Motor I way now in proas, which will he distributed by th?- Automobile Club ] ol New York at Hoti*l Ansonia". i Vt'om Washington to Kiclimoud is no longer a matter of waiting for the *ea1her. The first twenty miles could not be bettered, the latter halt iieing perfectly laid government con crete. After that comes a stretch of gravel which seems rough by com parlson. reaching to occoquan.? At the top of the hill beyond thl* vil lage. keep to the left, disregarding obsolete signs alld go over a tine new gfavel road, upon which the finishing , touches are .lust being put by forcibly | detained guests of the Common- ( Wealth. Beyond Dumfiie? another I joyous piece of concrete traverse* tne marshes of chopawamelc. and I Just a quarter of a mile reaching the | county line. whence a very good ??ravei road extenda to Fredericks burg. the Only drawback being the detour to the Commerce street bridge, the regular bridge being *111 down. On the way to Richmond the motor ist must be careful to take the rlgm fork at 39.5 two miles after crosjln* the railroad at Teman. This new State road haa no bumps on the way Jo the Confederate Capital. A detour tft ne cessary below Rlchpiond where tne ma*n road Is under repair for ten miles. but While longer the surface is excellent. More repairs are being made after Waving Petersburg on the way to Dinwiddle, but no detours, and the road varies from rough to ex cellent At Mecklenburg. 7? miles, take the left fork over a fine road to ^an* nons Feffy. th*n follow the good road to Henderson and Raleigh. This *a\es some 2.*. miles over the route via Clarksvllle and Is in better condi tion. From Raleigh to Pinehurat. *0 milea. the road is mostly fine with seme rough atrefchcs. This also ap plies to the route below Pinehurst on the way to Augusta, but fast time can be made on this 227 miles. From. Augusta it is better to g? to Jacksonville via Macon and \\u> cross rather than via Savannah Af trr reaching Jacksonville the road Is practically all brick, shell, asphalt or coqulns and very tine golnc all the wnv to Miami. From Daytona thr-r* are also excellent roads to Tampa and Bcllealr Heights. ONE STANDARD | ROADS WANTED -4 Builders Believe Single Sys tem Would Serve Country Best. The unanimous decision reached at recent meeting of the American I toad Builders' Association against the eloption of an exclusive type of foun dation for trunk line hrghways augur* w.H for the common-sens* treatment v?f our highway problems." comm?tv> Oeorge C. Diehl. county engineer of Kr?e bounty. N. Y.. and chairman both of the A. A. A Kood roads board nnd of the good roads committee of ) th?> New York State Motor Federation. "This action was that of men hav ing practical knowledge of road huilding matters and took into account the fact that local conditions involv ing the availability of material, the character of the soil, the drainaec facilities, and other governing factors might dictate In one case a wholly dif ferent type of foundation from that which would be found suitable In an other case. In the discussion numer ous examples were cited of roads con structed on telford. macadam, cement concrete, and asphaltic concrete foun dations, which had stood unharmed the severest tests of modern day traf fic. Improvements Needed. "This larger question which this discussion emphasized is that wltn our 2.&00.000 odd miles of roads, our 3.000.0(H) square miles of area, and our 105.000,000 population, we must utilize every means of making our highway systems serve the most tonnage, the greatest number of people, and the.larprest possible num fcer of needs. We must build some highway* wider and gome thicker than others: whenever possible we muat uae local material and con ferva every dollar's worth of im provements already made, and we must-avoid Jumping at conclusions baaed upon new and plausible theo ries as contrasted with fully ascer tained facts. "Twenty per cent of our high ways. or 500.000 miles, at $40,000 pei mile, the cost of many present-day State mads, would aggregate IX. 0(0,000.000 at the first cost. "If. within the present. or even the ne*t generation, we are to have a connected and well-developed sys | tem Of highways, aggregating one flfth of tBe total mileage, It Is per I fectly plain that a*3arge percentage rauat be built of less expensive 1 types, but every one of the stand ard proven types has its place in the completed system. "There Is no wholesale method of determining types, materials of con struction. cross-sections, etc.. but every single section must be de signed to meet Its own particular need." .
