A very important meeting of the Washington Automotive Trade Asso ciation was held last evening at 11-8 j Connecticut avenue northwest. Presi dent Rudolph Jose in the chair. From the very outset the meeting was full of "pep" and enthusiasm, and if the plans and resolutions adopted are carried out. as they un questionably will be. Washington is destined to havo ono of the most im portant trade organizations in the country. A plan of publicity was referred to the committee in charge, having for its purpose the bringing to the at tention of not only those engaged in the automobile business and allied trades in Washington, but to the gen eral public as well that membership In this organization was a guarantee of reliability, and that members dis playing the association's emblem in their place of business were worthy of confidence. One of the important branches of the association is that dealing with traffic regulations. The special com mittee having this work in charge will prove a valuable factor in brlng- l ing about better nad safer street con ditions. A motion was made and carried ap pointing a committee to have charge of the issuance from time to time of literature of value to the trade and to the car owners themselves. An amusing Interchange of wit oc curred in the adoption by the mem bers of an article calling attention of car owners to the value of proper lubrication, its presenter claiming that a crank case should be re-oiled after every 400 miles of travel. One member objected, in a Jocular manner, to the adoption of this spe cial article on the ground that if car owners followed out the instructlAns automobile dealers would be put out of business for lack of new custom ers. It was finally agreed that It was far better to have a pleased cus tomer than one seeking service con tinuously. ' A meetings committee was appoint ed to arrange for a suitable meeting place for the noonday and regular monthly meetings. It is planned to have these month ly meetings addressed by people of well-known reputation on the sub jects of interest to the trade in general. eh ONLY BUB IT AMY Instant Relief! Limber up!

OAK E XT VARDMN HA1 E Senator Vardaman of Missisippl, chairman of the Senate Manufac tures Committee, inserted into the Congressional Record yesterday a statement on the committee's inves tigation of the anthracite coal situa tion, charging that production of an thracite coal in the United States is controlled by eight large transpor tation companies, which, through an almost complete monopoly, were able to fix prices and determine the rate of production. Vardaman said the committee was unable to present its report at thl3 time, as' not all of the testimony taken in hearings in Washington and in the Pennsylvania coal fields had been printed. He added, however, that he had "gathered together cer tain facts." which he trusted would be of help to the next Congress in deal ing with the anthracite coal question. Testimony before the committee, be said, bad disclosed in his opinion that "there is no commodity in common use that is so absolutely monopolized as the anthracite coal production." Shortage of anthracite during the war and the existing high prices for the commodity, he said, wcr due al most entirely to this monopolistic control.

It makes no difference how tired you are when you get home from work, change your clothes, after a good bath, and you'll feel fit for all night. This statement is so well known as a fact that we feel guilty for repeating it in this col umn. But, so often, we do overlook the inspirational ef fect of good clothes upon our daily lives. Put 'on an old, shabby suit and call on a "prospect." Ten chances to one you will not land the order. Your mental attitude will be one of beg ging because of your knowl edge of being improperly at tired. Now put on a well pressed, at tractive suit and try the same "prospect." Hell treat you differently and you'll put more vim into your selling argument. Clothes do make a lot of differ ence and it is GOOD BUSI NESS to pay enough to get the BEST leaving out all consideration of wear and fit.

That is why Rengo- Belt corsrts havo always been made doubly strong. They have wonderful value because they need not be discarded before half worn.
