"The automobile industry has profited greatly, front the leseons learned in wartime," said Mr. White, who, with X. C. Steward, ie preparing to manufacture a new paseena-er car in Indianapolis. ''The ears of 1990 will show the benefits ot that experience, for adaptations of aircraft engine principles already have been 'made by many of the leadlnr automobile companies. These principles are not new to engineers, but until the warl they were to manufacturers ana to the public. ' RoMow neW Fnrte.

As a result, we shall have, many hollow en gine parts of greater diameter than the solid parts previously- used, giv ing them greater strength and dura bility with lees weight. "In the development of the air plane engine, difficulties previously encountered in the machining of alloy steels were overcome and great achievements were made in heat treatments through the attainment of eloser limits in furnace temperatures, hus increasing the durability and re sistance to fatigue. "A notable achievement was the solution of the baffling, problem of voiding a thn sheet of metal to a thicker one without burning the thin' ner, the thin steel water jacket of the airplane motor being, welded to the steel cylinder. "War reduced many of the so-called dreams of engineers to . commercial practicability. Necessity made the manufacturers do many things hith erto considered Impossible. For ex ample, they learned ' through neces sity that certain parts could be ma chined, on a produetion basis which they once thought had to be' done by hand. Some of these lessons were radical, and manufacturers were net always willing pupils, but the auto mobile manufacturer gradually learn ed to view his engineers with greater ruiuvt and th raulf was s raa.1 rstep forward from which the public will derive the benent. Many Advantage. "Ordinarily an established company has many advantages over aHew one. Under post-war conditions, however, 'he new 'plant with tools and equip ment baaed on these recent develop ments has a unieuue advantage, pro- idcd of course that it w dominatoil y the necessary ability and'experl- nce. "There are several features of the Liberty engine and other aircraft. en gines, such as the 'Steel cylinder, that cannot be incorporated into the pow er plant of a passenger oar. The two arc not parallel. The aircraft engine was operated practically continuous ly at full power fer short periods and frequently torn down. Durability and quietness so essential la a motor car were negligible factors." FARMERS ASKEMO BOOST ROAD BILL Asserting that construction and maintenance .of the main highways of the country will not only Insure the farmer travelatte trunk roads the year around,' but wiH' also re lease State and county funds for the construction of farm to market roads, Senator Charles B. Townsead of Michigan has called upon the farmers of the country to ea-operate with him in securing the passage ef the Townsend bill. In a letter addressed to members of the National , Orange. - Senator Townsend says: "Few questions ars of more far reaching importance to . the people of the United States, none in my opin ion, to the -people oZ'fne farms of the United States, than the ques tion of how best to efdclently and economically build roads which will serve all intrests. The remarkable growth of motor transportation In the past few years, and its still more tre mendous potentiality for the 'future, the great necessity for interstate roads no less than market roads, has brought us to a point where past pro cedure is no longer sufficient. Large sums will inevitably be expended. on our highways to make them useful for longer periods, and to decrease transportation costs. Every dollar so expended must bring back a full dollars' worth of value. Urges Highway Centmlsslen. "At the l&Bt session of Congress, I introduced a measure which would provide for a national highway sys tem of main trunk lines to be con structed and forever maintained by the United States Government under the direction of a Federal highway commission and requiring as a basis for administration, a scientific study into the principles governing high way transportation and construction. "My purpose at that time was simply to bring about a country-wide discussion. So general was the pub lic interest that a great many na tional, state and local organizations endorsed the principles so enunciated while many valuable and construc tive suggestions were received. "These suggestions I have since Incorporated Into a bill which is now once more before Congress, this time with the hope that an aroused and enlightened public sentiment may re sult init8 translation into law. Principle Involved. "A principle involved in this bill may need statement in more detail at this point, to meet certain sug gestions which have come especially from the people of the farms of the country. It is that by taking over a certain definite mileage of high ways in every State to be built and maintained by the Federal Govern ment, the States and localities, will be given not only the incentive and the example of well-built roads, but will also have saved from their own expenses for such construction the money needed to build those equally needed market roads, and at the same time will be providing the across state and inter-state roads which makes every radiating market road not only a market road to its nearest market point but to the other greater market centers. - "If you agree with the principles contained in ray measure I would be glad to .have your earnest co-operation in securing its passage." MOTORCYCLE SPEED 'CHAMP' FINISHES ON ORIGINAL AIR That three-nag: record, which two wheeler speed demons on the Pacific eoast cannot keep 'away from, has again fallen. This time the honore went to Walter Hatneld, of Portland. Ore., who covered the 1,700 miles from the Canadian line to the Mexi can border in just 61 hours and 22 minutes, er 2 hours and 8 minutes aster than any former contender.

I TIRES, LIKE PEOPLE, E It is generally conceded by motor ists that cord tires are euilt to with stand a great deal of wear and tear and even to take a large measure ef undeserved punish mint and despite severe use, to deliver satisfactory ser vice and mileage. But just is a, big robust man tiskes his good health as a matter of course and grows over confident and careless, eord tire users often abuse and neglect their tires because they have been getting such good results with so little attention to them. But everything has Its limit of en durance and cord tires aleng with other things. And while a motorist may misuse his tires and yet obtain a fairly satisfactory service from them, he obviously Is not getting their full quota of inbuilt mileage. And in these days when, in the interest of economy and conservation every tire should be made to sun out its last possible mile, the motorist who is wasting a portion of the life of his tires, hi not doing his full duty. m Kegleet Causes Undue Wear. t According to G. X. Brunner, man ager of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company's Service Department, fully 40 per cent of the new cord tires that have bee.n sold by that company's ser vlcex station In the last few months, to replace worn-out oords. have replaced tires that want out of commission prematurely because of mproper care and neglect. And al most invariably the untimely demise of the tire cotMd be traced to the lack of proper air pressure. "Because of the larger air capacity in our cord tires and their greater flexibility and more durable construc tion, we have advocated inflation pres-. euros ior cord U res 10 per cent lower than that for fabric tires," says Mr. Brunner. "But inotorists, encouraged by the good service received, have been revising oar, inflation schedules downward and ' becoming eareles about proper 'inflation. A recent in vestigation which wt made, showed that many cord tire -users wereearry-ing- only about half the recommended air pressure. And yet the great ma jority of these motorists were obtain ing what to them was very satisfac tory service. Cord Three Gaining Popularity. "But in those days when every eubic foot of shipping space on our ocean liners is almost priceless, every pound of rubber should be made to do Its full duty and every tire should be made - deliver its fun measure of mtloa.

'The use of eord tires is incrwaslng rapidly and will continue do so, because of their easy riding qualities and the increased mileage they de liver. But sufficient attention must be paid to the maintenance of proper air' pressures if they are to be pet raltted to run out their full life. The layers of rubber between the piles of cords are heavy so heavy tact the tires will hold up under a tremendous amount of punishment but they have a limit, and whenever that limit is reaehed the motorist pays for Hie ex perience with mileage that is lopped off" his tires." .

On her return trip Mrs. William Tipton, the seventr-year-eld weman, who, alone, drove a Ford runabout .from i man Franchise to New York eity. visited the Ford Meter Company's main offtee.

At Springfield, 111., Mrs. Upton's birth place, she plans to dispose of the ear, and, after visiting her many friends there, will return home by railroad. When commenting on her trip, she said that In making- the drive from the Atlantic to the Pacific It had not been her purpose to follow a direct line of travel, but to visit the most LeUies and places of interest. She visited the JFetrinea jroresc spent sev eral days la the National Capital, drove to Mt.

She experienced practically no trouble with her car, although she pointed out the fact that she understands the Ford motor and made her own'adjust moats. Before leaving the Ford com nanv.
