Estimates Furnished by Director Call

Decorations in Big
After the big showi In .New York

consideration a feature of the automo

Interested to learn a t<v, "i 1 the details
of the big- Chicago show, in order to
add to the effectiveness of th

Samuel A. Miles of the Chicago auto
mobile show, which takes plan- from
February 5 to I" at the Coliseum and
First regiment armory, is overlooking!
none of the smaller v. tails.
Everything will be given considera
tion, even to the atmosphere. Arrange
mentS have been made to give a tlm
berland odor to the Coliseum, which is
to have a forest setting; Incense, such I
as wns used in a. Hudson Bay produc-|
tlon by Robert Edeeon a few yean
to give the audience a breath of th"
plite country, is to lie adopted. The
("oliscum annex, which i.s to be fitted,
out as a rose garden from basement to I
Bet "ud floor, is to be scented with rose
water, while a rustic atmosphere Will
be provided for the First regiment
armory, when the decorations arc to
be different from those iii both the
Coliseum and annex.
Tola will all cost money, and will in
coive a larger expenditure than ever be
fore for decorations and atmosphere,"
said Manager Miles. "However, *It is
my ambition to give Chicago an exhi
bition that will outrival anything ever
before offered In this country or abroad.
My estimates call for an outlay of
over $75,000 in decorations alone."
The forest, which is to occupy the
Coliseum, win require equipment never
before utilized in a show of any kind.
The visitors will get their moneys
worth In this scene alone, and the ex
hibitors should profit In a large mea
sure by the novelty.
The plans for the Coliseum call for
four center section.-5. On the dividing
line running north and south there is to
be near the center of each section a
running fountain: to the north and
south a tree: on each side uf the tree
a brick pillar surmounted by vases,
each pillar bearing' two lamps. In the ;
between the pillar and the end
gallery there Is to be a gate supported 11
by two brick pillars surmounted by i
yasea. At the end of each section near
est the jrallery will be found a tree
evidently In full gTowth. and at Use
other end a circular picket fence '
mounted on a brick base. The spaces '
between these' sections will be occu
pied by Iron fencing nine feet in
height, with a circular fence surround
ing each tree.

it is undoubtedly 1 rue thai during '■'
veiopment the motor ear was classed as a
luxury to be on Joyed by the privileged few,
ular Imprauli ins stick.
. People do not realize that while the human
mind clings to the notion that automobiles
are extravagant to keep, designers have been
irking and perfecting automobiles to a point
that has reduced the cost of running to a
very low figure.
There are literally thousands of people who
have never seriously considered owning a car,
not because' they could not afford to buy one,
but because they could not afford to keep
one. This thought, fostered by the Impres
sion that existed some years ago, Is not based
upon ' the automobile a« 11 - xlsta now.
There are sold every year In the United
States about 700)000 two-passenger buggies,
and it is a fact that there are several run
abouts, Helling at around 4600. which am not
only cheaper to keep, but do the work of
two or even three horses. And there are well
made, reliable touring cars selling for $luoo
that cost surprisingly little torun per week.
Automobile manufacturers who are making
high-priced cars do not constitute the auto
mobile Industry. Cars which cost $3000 and
$4000 might be styled luxuries, and as such
there will always be a market for them.
But today is the day of the moderate priced
car. If proof were necessary we only have
to point to our western farmers, where even
the most modest uses the automobile of mod-
rate price.
Why should the automobile be cited ns an
example of the extravagant? Why should it
be cited any more than the piano, which is
found almost In every home?
No car started out more favorably
in the Phoenix race than the Dorris,
with Billy Bosbyshell at her wheel.
When she reached Palm Springs she
was forty-five minutes ahead of her
schedule, but Just as she was climb,

the photograph, in the darkness, about
the only tree between Redlands and
the Colorado river stood in the way,
and the Dorris had to catch it between
the hood and the wheel, breaking the
axle. That settled the Dorris. |
