TKMl'K, August 30. During the
past winter the women of the Tempe
community havo labored energetically
and initlunlly at tlio sewing rooms of
ill"' local Red Cross anil even through
the summer months the rooms ha'e
I t en kept open two days a week with
extremely gratifying results. Temps
);as few women with leisure hours to
ilevote to affairs outside their own
homo and the work has entailed much
sacrifice on the part of all. Conse
quently it has hern deemed expedient
to elose the rooms for the month of
September in order that the workers
may ha e a rest and an opportunity
to ilevote to getting their own affairs
in order. It is hoped that every woman
will do her work this month with a
view to devoting as much time as pos
sible to the work of the Red Cross
when the rooms open the first of October.

ANOTHER change has been made in the rate of taxes to be placed by the
Federal government upon automobiles now in service, says the New York
Tribune. The schedule swings away from the unequal scheme of taxing
on the list price of the ear when new to a plan for taxation upon horsepower
rating. This is the system by which most state automobile taxes are levied,
and is certainly a better thing from the point or view of the motorist.
Here is the way the proposed taxes compare with those already levied in
New York state by the Automobile Bureau of the scretary of state:
Proposed Federal Tax New York State Tax
Under 23 horsepower $10 Under "25 horsepower 5
24-30 horsepower 20 25-34 horsepower 10
31-40 horsepower 30 35-49 horsepower IS
Above 40 horsepower 50 Above HO horsepower 2,
It is interesting also to note that the state of Connecticut taxes motor cars
at the rate of aO cents a' horsepower. Cars rating from 1 to 10 horsepower pay
?r. The highest horsepower in the Connecticut table is 80, paying $40 tax.
The great majority of automobiles in this country fall in the $10 class. For
instance, we are told that of 5,429.33fi cars registered in the United States 2.341,
173 are Ford cars. The Ford engine rates 22.5 horsepower. Huick four. 18.2;
Chevrolet four. 21.7; Grant six, 21. B: Hupmobile fur, 16.9; Maxwell four. 21;
Moon, 6-36, 19.8; Oakland six, 19; Oldsmobile six. 18.9; Overland Model 90, 18.2;
Saxon six, 19.8; Studcbaker four, 19.6. are some of the larger production cars
that run in small horsepowers.
In the $20 class fall such cars as Buick six, Chandler. Dodge Bros., Franklin,
Haynes six, Hudson, Jordan, Lexington, Liberty, Mitchell. Moon 6-66, Nash,
Oldsmobile eight, Reo, Stearns four, Studebakcr 6-50, Stutz, Velie, White,
Willys-Knight Four and Willys Six.
Jn default of a better system, horsepower is all right. But rated horsepower
is not developed, by a whole lot, chiefly through the fault of the formula. For
instance, the Ford and the Mercer have the same S. A. E. rated horsepower.
The Ford engine is 3 inches bore by 4 inches stroke. The Mercer engine is
3 inches bore by 6 inches stroke. The Mercer engine will develop TO horse
power; the Ford, of course, nowhere near that. As long as horsepowers are
computed on the stroke such differences will be observable. But as has been
said, unless a system of taxation on the cost price of the car to the present
owner is put into effect, taxing on horsepower is the next best thing and far
better than the idea first proposed, that the price of the car when new, regardless
of its present age, should be the basis of the tax.

DETROIT. Aug. 24. That women
engaged in the different lines of the
motor industry, from driving cars in
volunteer motor organizations to tak-'
ing the place of male help drafted into
Uncle Sam's mighty army, are adapt
ing themselves to the change readily
and efficiently is now an accepted fact.'
But Detroit, used as it is to kaledio
scopic changes, and calloused by years
of experience with the magic of the
motor industry, sat up and rubbed its
eyes this morning in startled surprise.
Eined up in front of plant 3 of the
Studebakcr corporation, in real mili
tary formation, business men and
workers hurrying down town saw an
evi'n dozen new Seties 18 Studebaker
cars ready for a driveway. Driveways,
of course, are no longer a novelty to
Detroiters. They have long since be
come accustomed to seeing string after
string of bright new cars leaving town
almost daily. But here was a new
wrinkle. For, instead of an overalled
mechanic, or a prepossessing looking
dealer at the wheel of each car there
sat a smiling, well dressed young
I woman.
Cr.oss Country Drive
Investigation disclosed the fact that
these women were starting on a cross
country drive that would cause many
a male veteran of the wheel to hesi
tate. They were brought to Detroit
from a large city in the southwest by
a prominent Studebakcr distributor.
anxious to make good his delivery
promises to enthusiastic purchasers.
With the army and navy depleting the
ranks of available men drivers, and
work a-plenty to do at home for the
men left behind, this live automobile
merchant cast precedent to the pro
verbial four winds and signed up a full
crew of ambitious young women to
drive his ears from the factory.
. But the dealer, who was acting as
pathfinder for the caravan, could see
no particular cause for excitement in
this, the first big driveaway to leave
the "Motor City" piloted exclusively by
women. He merely called attention to
the mechanical improvements that
have been made in the modern car,
which made it possible to operate one
with virtually no technical under
standing of its makeup.
"Driving has been made as nearly
automatic as possible in these new
Studebakcr cars," said the westerner.
"All instruments are conveniently
grouped on an instrument board that
is always at one's finger tips. The con
trols are arranged for the driver's con
venience, and it requires no effort
whatever to operate them. Starting
plunger is. located just below the
driver's heel. The gasoline and spark
levers are on the steering column, in
the most convenient position imagin

Ideally Arranged
"Everything about these new cars,
in fact, is ideally arranged in the most
natural and comfortable position. Tho
soft' flexible application of power,
through double flexible couplings and
intermediate transmission, means ev
erything in easy riding. The balanced
weight, silent gear-shift, short-turning
radius and irreversible steering gear
result in exceptionally easy driving.
Studebaker cars drive as straight as
an arrow and you can drive one all
day without fatigue. This wonderful
ease of operation, I have fovnd. has
made Studebaker cars among the most
popular makes of automobiles, in the
viewpoint of women drivers."
Incidentally, besides releasing men
for important war work, or to serve in
the. ranks, the training these young
women drivers are receiving now will
season them for the more arduous du
ties that may fall to their lot later on
such as ambulance and truck drivers

STlllZATl
OF TIRES Ifj YEAR
BY GOVE
R11T
'In standardizing tire sizes, war has
performed a service in one year's time
for dealers, manufacturers and car
owners that it would have taken ;i
score of years to accomplish in nor
mal times."' said W. F. Tate of thu
.Motor Supply company, distributor o
Diamond tires.
"There is really no necessity for tbo
multiplicity of sizes and types of tires
which manufacturers have been mak
ing and dealers have been carrying in
stock." And yet, I doubt whether wi
would have weeded out the non-essentials
short of lr() had the old world
continued to drift along in 1312 fash
ion.
"When an automobile designer speci
fied a tire of different size or type, tirn
manufacturers simply made it. Xo one
stopped to inquire whether some ex
isting size or type wouldn't suit just as
well. As a result; we have had a to
tal of 2S7 different tires, with conse
quent high manufacturing costs and
large investments by dealers who en
deavored to carry a complete stock.
"By the recent action of the pneu
matic tire division of the war servico
board rims on new cars will be limited
to six sizes and it will be simple for
tire makers to follow suit by reducing
to nine standard tire sizes. The new
dimensions are as follows:
, "Rims 30x3 clincher. "2x3 u
straight side. 33x4 straight side, 34x4'
straight side, 36x6 straight side, 3Sx7
straight side.
"Tires 30x3Vi clincher, 31x4 clinch
er. 32x3 straight side, 33x4 straight
side, 34x414 straight side, 35x5 straight
side, 36x6 straight side, 3Sx7 straight
side. 40xS straight side.
"Some sizes are abandoned imme
diately. Others are continued for
varying periods, buf by November 1,
1920. the entire plan will be in effect.
"It's the best thing that ever hap
pened." said Mr. Tate. "Tire dealers
will carry smaller stock, have lower
overhead expense, and the manufac
turers will welcome the new condition.
This is directly in line with the pur
poses of the war service board.
"The new program will be adopted
gradually, giving car owners plenty of
opportunity to change their rim equip
ment where the car will outlive the
supply of odd size tires. All new au
tomobiles, will conform to the new
standards, gradually eliminating all
demand for odd sizes " .
