Auto Touring
People go touring in pedestrian
chasers just so they can come roll
ing back in the old home town and
startle the natives with other ban
ners of other cities hanging all over
the gas eater like a clothes line at 9
o'clock Monday morning.
This is music to the auto-tourers'
"Why, Henry, vjes' look where
they've been, Goofville, Omelette-on-the
tie, Oniond.ale, Bugburg an all
over.' r
Ana, of course-, a Pike's Peak ban
ner; nV auto-touring party is com
plete without a Pike's Peak banner
dangling in the zephyrs even if they
only did go as far as Hammond, Ind.
Auto touring is just one toll after
another. And it's some graft, too.
All a guy has to do is to take a switch
and when he hears a chugger come
rattling along the highway shove the
switch and yell "Toll!"
Then he goes up and collects, at
least a twin jitney.
It's easy nioney, Eddie, even easier
than the way it's extracted in auto
repair shops.
"Look at 'em!" exclaimed the
"Look at what?'" asked the pock
etbook snatcher.
"Them black an' white stripes that
is all the style. I kin remember when
they put 'em on us we thought we
was disgraced!"
