worth is shown in the fact that nine other cars
ranging in price from Si 135 to 3800 also have it.

I vras a taxicab dnver In Detroit. -
In the seven veara T Hmra them
I aerer missed a train when the price was right
No theater party inissed -the first act w
if there tvas a gentleman' along. ; s i
I used to Wt fifty-five on the boulevard ''
And never was plnched'except for'too mnchxilt
No accidents, no damage. ?
But somebody tipped me oft
That Washington was the placef or m gam.
I packed my grip and my roll and embarked.,
The first week on the job I cleaned tip.
One guy, driving for the same crowd,
. Warned me that I couldn't get away.wlth it.
"They'll hang yon if they get yefa
This ain't Detroit or New York." I
I laughed but I cut my speed to eighteen 7
One day I was doing fifteen by the clock
A Jaybird walked'off the sidewalk,
Headed for my Tight front fender. ' "
I braked her and tried to climb a front stoop.
But I went through the windshield when she struck.
I'm glad "they buried me -at Mount Olivet
And kept it out of the newspapers.''
Fifteen miles an hour!

Would never get over the disgrace. . , " .
"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

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

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. Greatest class
of people in the world out here in Kansas."

WINTER CARE OF TIRES
MEANS MATERIAL SAVING
Tire neglect In winter Is responsible
frequently for absolutely unnecessary
purcaases in me spring;, ana. inas
much as economy is now foremost In
the minds of all motorists, the mil
lionaire, as well as the flivver owner,
the B. P. Goodrich Rubber Company
gives he following suggestions for
tire care during the winter months:
1 Tires should be removed from
I wheels, and outstdes of the casings
washed with soap and water to re
move all traces of c!L Injuries
1 should be looked for. repalra made It
any are needed. The tires should be
laid flat In a cool, dark room after
being wrapped In clean cloths or pref
erably black paper. .
"Tubes should be -taken out of cas
ings, slightly Inflated, and also laid
flat In a cool, dark place, wlthyno
weight on them.
"If the tires are not removed from
the wheels, jack up the car, leaving
only enojgh air In the casings to
keep the tire tight and In shape. Cars
should not be left for any consider-

sections where the motorcycle deliv

that many firms have adopted them.
