there has been a steady and logical i
progress toward comprehensive par-'
ticipation in highways betterment by

Mr. Jameson, who then goes on to
"The explanation' of this development
is exceedingly simple and consists
mainly in the fact that we now utilize
for passengers and freight road ve
hicles which disregard county ub
divisions and state lines. There most
be a distribution of highways author
ity among the several subdivisions. In
our own councils we have repeatedly
discussed the proposition that there
should be no smaller unit than the
county, which would mean county
roads, then state roads, and, finally,
federal roads.
"On the way to a federal system, we
are following out a partnership with
the several states by which equal
amounts of federal and state money
arc 6pent in the, creation of state sys
tems. This was preceded by a joint
arrangement between the state and its
counties, until finally the state in many
instances has taken over the main
market roads. Exactly the same thing
is certain to result from the present
fwdoral and elate co-operation, and
this is fundamentally set forth in the
bill Just introduced by Senator Charles
E. Townsend of Michigan, the probable
chairman of the senate committee onr
post offices and post roads in the next
congress. The measure introduced by
him calls for a federal highway sys

two main trunk line roads in each

the many uses the automobile can be

construction, says . A. Kissel, presi
dent of the Kissel Mofr Car company.
"I refer to the members of the
American Motor corps division who
have in the past year learned the A 3
Cs of motor car construction and oper
ation, from the ground up. There ar-:
several hundred thousand of these
young men who represent future pur
chasers and users of automobiles, and
who will make their purchases accord
ing to the expert advice they learned
from Uncle Sam. Transmissions, dif
ferentials, gear ratios, even' part, of the
automobile chassis are like an open
book to them.
iTartically every automobile manu
facturer who was on government work
nt one time or a:.uther had scores of
these young me.t right in their plants
learning the construction of the differ
ent automobile p-rts. As one promin
ent automobile official said to me re
cently: 'They represent the new er.
of the automobile industry Kor some
time past the manuf-rturers have felt
that if owners understood more thor
oughly the mechanism of the cars the
drove, the abuses they unconsciously
gave their ears, half the troubles of
owners would be eliminated, half of
Americas sen-ice and parts expense
would be stonoed and the nation's gas
oline and oil bill reduced.'"
The development of tires for all i
classes of transportation service has j
been one of the wonderful accomplish-
ments of the decade. In both solid and i
pneumatic types, tires have been de- '
veloped, capable of delivering tens,
twenties and thirties of thousands of
miles, and even more, instead of the
one and two thousands of early days.
There are separate fields for all
kinds of tires. Some users demand a
pneumatic tire, and others a solid tlr.
I The field for pneumatics, however, is
rapidly expanding and many trucks are
now changing over to this type of tire.
"Wat type of tire shall I put on my
I truck?'' is a question often tsked these
i days, according to the local branch
manager for the Goodyear Tire and
i Rubber company. This, of course, all )
I depends upon what use you make of
your truck," he says. "As between
i solids and pneumatics, each affords
j well-defined advantages in certain
kinds of jtervice.
"Kor short hauls, through congested
j traffic, where slow speeds are obliga
j tory and pavements reasonably good,
, solid tires serve economically and well.
But in long distance transport, inter -'
urban freighting and general trucking,
where cushioning and traction are es
; sential, pneumatic tires are far more
, efficient and saving.
' "Pneumatic tires permit increased
j speed, which means that a truck in
! general trucking service may make
! more trins in a day than formerly.
When the reduction of repair expense
: is a considerable item, for the big
' pneumatic tires take up the road
j shocks and prevent them from affect
ing the mechanism of the trurk.
"Many truck owners who have

! ation, larger returns from gasoline and

it-- load capacity They are of cord
construction, made in the same man
ner as cord tires for passenger cars,
except that there are more plies of
cords, the sidewalls are sturdier and
the tread much thicker.
"The possibility of puncture In these
tires is very remote. fr the thick tread
is exceedingly tough and practically
proof against puncture. So that tht
old bugbear of punctures is well-nigh
'These tires are now in use In more
than 400 rities in this country as well

transport line."
It has often been remarked that the
average car owner knows too much
about the motor and that this knowl
edge tends to make him forget and
neglect the clutch, gear set and the
rest of the power transmission system.
Certain it is that universals, brakes,
wheel bearings and many other not
easily accessible parts are generally
forgotten until something goes wrong
with them. The owner does not wait
for a bearing cap to fall off before he
fills the crank case with oil, and simi
larly he should not wait until there is
play in the universals before he gives
it a supply of grease and graphite. It
is difficult to keep the universals wefl
lubrlccated, even when the housing is
periodically filled. Similarly trtcre
"Surface" Cuts
When a casing is badly cut by glass or other sharp
objects it should be removed and a permanent repair "
made, by an expert repair man. Otherwise the tire
may blow out unexpectedly. Cuts that seem super
ficial many times actually penetrate one or more
layers of fabric, thus weakening the entire structure,
the consequence of which is an early blowout, usual
ly when you are in the biggest hurry.
Begin Now
Look at your tires, if you find a cut, no matter how
small, driTC around and let us look at it. If it should
be fixed we will tell you. This service does not obli-.
gate you in the least; wc are only too glad to be of
service. A small cut can be repaired in three hours;
a blowout in a day. It is not necessary to "tie-up"
your car over night for tire repairs.
We use the one cure wrapped tread method in re
treading, using the best stock money can buy. We
will absolutely not retread your casing if it will not
stand it.
