Radiator Discusses Motor Locking Law Comments on the One to Forty-Dollar Fine Plaster ed on Anyone for Forgetting to Guard Against Thieves. By MONTE It Is against the law to park your car anywhere for any period of time without "locking" It. There Is such a regulation, and now, with a vigorous campaign to ImprrBs It on the unttltlatcd, tho police are going to teach motorists to lock their cars-at II to HO per teach. It is as though there were a law regulating that one must lock ontfs house at night, and failure to Iock t that house were punishable by tine. The wise mind which makes our motor code decided that John Jones would not have lost his car had 't been "adequately locked." So that when Jim Jones and Sam Jones and. nil! Jones leave t'iclr earn porked "unlocked" ngalnst the ciirb they arc fined. This Is proper. To leave your car unlocked by switch key or chain or padlock Is to make moro difficult the operations of tho police. When you leave your car on tho street n this unprotected wise you are a criminal. You do pot merely .encourage tho car-copplng crooks, but you become .automatically an ac complice by paving the Way In this particular avenue of crlmo. The average motorist docs not fully appreciate the great burden borne by tho police- of Washington. Ttiey nave mucn to ao Therefore, -when you park your car anywhere, to buy a hat, a cigar, or a new, summer suit, stop your engine rfhd either pocket the switch key. chain your wheels togothcr or lock your gear lqvor In neutral. Otherwise you. will be fined for bc Ifg ii n accessory before the fact that your car wax swiped. II SOHN. Of course, your cac might not be swiped. ' Hut It might be, or It might have been. And JJuat what you will cost your self Is up to the Judge who sits on you. Yod arc an accssory, and acces sories In this Instance cost from one to forty dollars. No cop Is going to watch your car. That In too. much to ask. He hai other things to do. While he Is wntchlng for car-snatchura somo motorist may be traiing reck lessly down tho street at eighteen miles an hour. Hcsldes, It Is always a. reflection on tho efficiency of tho police depart ment when somebody's car Is ntolen. A lot of fuss In always rained when It disappears. The law In therefore a good thing. If you get soaked about I10 for forgetting to lock your Ignition switch when you get shaved, It will serve you right. You can't leave your car. purring at the entrance to the theater white you go In to buy tickets for tonight. Neither can you leave It, chuckling softly to Itself outside his door whllo you wax extravagant and go In to pay your tailor what you owe him. If the Cop who catcnes you had not been watching to see If you locked It when you left It there, some crook might have come along and driven It away. Therefore, look your car when you leave It.

"It Is a mistake," nays Claude Miller, local distributer for tho Dort, "to sup pono that tho real tent of a car's merit In determined by country driving alone.

"Not only does the city driven car run up far greater mllpagcs during the neason, but It Is subjected to a fearful strain In the sudden stops and starts that are ncressarfly a part and parcel of all city driving. "The racking effect of continued and frequent starting and stopping on a car Is most sevcro, and many motor cars fall to stand up under It. This Is minimized In country driving where a car In driven for considerable stretches ut a smooth, steady rato of speed, even though the roads nrc rough. "Thero Is no question that the per formance of a motor car over rough country roads, through sand and mud, kIvoh h good Index of the worth of the springs and the power of the motor; but no country driving, unless specially arranged, exactly duplicates city con ditions In demonstrating the flexibility of tho motor or the. efficiency of the brakes.

PUPILS INCREASE ROADSAREBETTERED Department of Agriculture Bul letin Shows Good Road Results. Increases of land value ranging from 2u to 194, and reduction of hauling costs from 33M cents per ton mile to IS 7-10 cants, duo directly to road Improvement In eight counties, provo conclusively that dirt Is not cheap, when thai dirt Is on tho highways. . Theso and a number of other Interest ing and Important facts aro presented In a bulletin of about ISO pages Just Is sued by tho Department of Agriculture under the title, "Economic Surveys of County Highway Improvement." The work Is an analysis of results obtained from road Improvement In four counties In Virginia and one each in New York, Alabama, Florida, and Missis sippi, during a period of five years. Following Improvement of the main market roads, thn selling price of till able lands served by the roadn in creased from one to three times the total cost or the Improvements Tho grdss annual saving In hauling coaU due to the good roads amounts to JK7, 400 for a traffic of about 3,175,000-ton miles, whllo tho net saving, after de ducting the cost of Interest and princi pal for road work, averages 11 -10 cents pet ton mile for hauling. Before tho roads were Improved the nverago school attendance was sixty six 'pupils In each 100 enrolled, ns com pared' with seventy-six after Improve ment. Thus, ten moro children In every 100 are enabltd to no cure an education ii k a result of better roads. , Improvements Made in Windows of Closed Auto The tendency toward greater conveni ence in motor cars Is well shown v the Improvements made In raising nnd lowering the windows of the closed cars.' Old carriage construction methods wcro used In the first motor closed cars put out. Vast Improvement has been made, however. In tho last few years, and now we find a window controlled by turning a crank.

Auto Thief Tells How To Protect Your Car BT. LOUIH, Mo., Nov. 11. Om Lewis, the leader of a band of three brothers, who are held here charged with mur dering two policemen, growing; out of their activities as automobile thieves, has told how machlno owners can prevent thieves from taking their, machines. He laughed at the suggest tlon that safety locks, platen and other devices bother expert thieves. His remedy, as he told It. to Chief of Detectives Allender, In the 'presence of reporters, 1st ' "Just cross your spark plug wlrss. Cross two of them and the cylinder won't hit. It will take a thief Hours to find out what's wrong, but It won't take the machine owner but two minutes to cross the wires and male his machine safe."
