The widespread adoption of free wheeling was of decided import ance, although not literally a 1931 development. A new method of en gine mounting to reduce vibration was also placed on one line of cars. 1931 saw the introduction of auto matic starting and automatic de clutching. One has only to turn the ignition key to start the motor with this device and the declutch ing is performed merely by remov ing the foot from the accelerator. The tire companies, too, added their products to the list. One com pany introduced an air-cooled tire.

However, highway engineers noted a decrease of 6 per cent in travel on the main highways, lead ing to the belief that the general improvement program has led to betterment and greater use of con necting roads. More cars traveled through the underpass one mile west of Bill ings than were checked at any oth er point. The daily average there was 2,504. However, at the junc tion five miles west of Butte, the average was 2,389 Butte-bound 1,800 Anaconda-bound and an In cars, 648 Dillon-bound cars.

In line with the demand for quieter cars one manufacturer pro duced an intake muffler, which does away with that hissing sound from the region of the carburetor. To make for smoother riding, an other company brought out cars with adjustable shock absorbers which could be made to fit differ ent types of roads. A headlight company introduced a fixed focus bulb which eliminates glare, which is caused by bulbs being out of focus.

While all of these developments were taking place the body de signer was busy. All-steel bodies with lower centers of gravity made tremendous progress in 19Î1, By employing this type of construction manufacturers have done much to eliminate squeaks and rattles and the use of a new sound deadening material has done away with drumming and other body noises These developments have been a direct result of free-wheeling and silent transmission which have served to accentuate body noises and make quieter bodies necessary.
