MOTORISTS WANT
YOSEMITE OPENED
Government Asked That
Machines Be Permitted
Into Floor of Valley
Believing that the Yosemite valley
with all its wonderland should be open
to the tourists of the world that na
ture's beauty might be fully appreciated
and that California might benefit from
the travel, the Tourist association of
the bay and river counties lias sent a
direct appeal to Washington asking
that all the roads leading into the val
ley be opened immediately for
bile travel.
A resolution to this effect has been
forwarded to Secretary of the Interior
Franklin K. Lane by the executive com
mittee of the association.
At the present time only one road
is open, and that is via Coulterville.
Even by this route, it is understood,
automobilists are not yet allowed to
take their machines to the floor of tho
valley. This it is pointed out benefits
only the railroads and prohibits tho
average citizen from touring in a ma
chine the wonders furnished by nature.
If the Wawona road were opened to
autos, tourists and others might go into
the valley by way of Wawona and thus
be able to see the big trees and tho
sights of the valley without having?
to make a special trip from Yosemlto
to big trees, as Is the case at present.
Following is the resolution:
1 Whereas, the Tourist association of San
Francisco bay and river counties, representing 23
Chambers of" Commerce and other commercial or
ganizations, associated for the purpose of pro
moting tourist travel and to develop among our
own people an appreciation of the Importance of
the tourist business ss a facto* in our commer
cial and social development, believing that tbe
scenic wonders of California should be made ac
cessible to everybody and that every encourage
ment and facility should be given to the people
of the world to see them: and.
Whereas. Yosemite valley and the Big Trees,
the greatest of these natural wonders, are not
accessible to automobilists except by one route,
vi 7.. via Coulterville:
Resolved, therefore, that this association mak«
an earnest appeal to Secretary of the Interior
Franklin K. Lane to open all the roads for vehi
cles info Yosemite valley and the Bie Trees, viz..
via the Coulterville. the Big Oak Flat and ths
Wawona routes in order that tourists, as well asi
our own people, may become better acquainted
with these wonders which nature has given us.

big cities along the coast. Also Stock

L. A. Renif of the Reo Pacific com
pany has just returned from a trip into

ers, branches and agents there. He re
ports the prospects for next season's
business unusually bright.
An Intercut ins teat of the doxatnetrr,
the new fuel control device invented
by John A. Doxey, was made about the
streets of Indianapolis Saturday after
noon with a Paige-Detroit "36" five
passenger belonging to Dr. J. D. Nus
baum. Doctor Nusbaum, who had never
seen the device before, drove the enr
himself. Motor spirits were used in
stead of gasoline. On the first test the
engine was throttled down to its mini
mum speed. The car was then run
eight miles an hour. Without touchiner
tho fuel supply, the domameter whs;
opened, and in a distance of approxi
mately 300 yards tlie car's speed ros<»
to 16 "miles an hour, a gain in engine
efficiency of 100 per cent.
