Fifteen miles an hour! My family in Mount Clemens ' Would never get over the disgrace. . , " . v "The bane of the American automobile dealer is the trading-ln problem. What to do with swaps is something that keeps manya successful dealer awake at night. Imagine, then, how .he feels . when he see? in the Paris newspapers second-hand "bargains" Tike a four-year-old Rolls-Royce at $17,000, A Pannard at only $18,000 and- an extra-equipped Renault merely $27,0001. Coming down to earth any twedty to thirty horsepower French car of good make brings from $7,600 to $10,000 without any trouble at alL Having bought one of these cheap second-hands because one really must economize i war time, dont Ton know you get fairly good tires for it at $90 each, and. gasolene that is almost as good as kerosene for $1-25 per" gallon. Of course, these prices seem a rather steep to us, but that is because we compare them with pur own. To the Frenchman they seem only fair when he thinks 'of the man in Sweden who, before he can get any tire at all, has to apply for and be given a permit to buy it by the Royal Automobile Club. Equipped with the permit and a man's sized bankf balance . he goes to the nearest dealer, puts down his permit along with $550 and is handed in return one tire! And yet even In Norway there are four tires needed by every- carl Having got his $24200 set of tires the Norwegian invests in gasolene at $1.75 per gallon and goes merrily on his way maybe. Now quit your klcking-.ac SO-cent gasolene. See how lucky yon are to be over here in God's country and not elsewhere, no matter where it may be." Ameri can Motorist. MOTORGOOSE. Seesaw s Margery JDatv, ? Lizzie shall have a new master, 1 She shall have but a gallon a-day Because she can't run any faster. George Sutton, brilliant young editor of Motor Life, wasin,-Y Washington this week. "What," we asked during the course f - the conversation, "is the right time?" Our qwn watch is busted, and we had an appointment. . He pulled out his watch, a handsome biscuit-thin Hamilton, ' and glanced at it sd.did we. Its hands distinctly said 7:50. "Twenty minutes past one," he announced gravely. Was he joking? Ho waa not. f . "African time," he replied to the unasked question. "Several years in Zanzibar did that for me. Time doesn't change much there," he said. "Every morning at 6 o'clock the sun rises. Our watches are set by it, and I've never gotten out of the habit" Which was all very clear. But this is Washington. A child could grasp such a system of mathematics as- trology-and-mental legerdemain with forty years of study. Even the wise old West has been hypnotized by the press agents of gasolene producers hypnotized into fear of a bugaboo yclept Gas Shortage. The Kansas City Star may not think so. but it implies some " thoughts a sober newspaper should not have when it says: "If gasolene should go to $4 a gallon there are people' in the PhUlips county seat who would buy it by the pint that they might joyride around the square. And by the way, there are farmers I know, if they couldn't get gas, who would haul their cars up the hill with a mule team in order to coast down.

MOTORCYCLE DELIVERY IS FOUND SATISFACTORY The use of motorcycles equipped with sldevans for light delhrery work hsa been found very satisfac tory In many cities and towns, and In sections where the motorcycle deliv ery has been started the result was that many firms have adopted them. In Galesburg. ill, one enterprising dealer has planned si motorcycle de livery service and has closed con tracts with several merchants-to de liver all jrooda within- a certain radius. Experienced riders have teen obtained and the patrons wW recsve quick, efficient service.
