The big surprise at tho New York
had somo great advantages over "gas"
cars, but they have also been at some
disadvantage. The new car seems to
nave kept all the good points of the
steam car and got rid of most of the
Automobile Show was a new kind of
steam car. Steam cars have always
drawbacks. --t

The decorations of the Interior of
the Terminal Auditorium for tile ninth
automobile show of the Toledo Auto
Shows Company to .be held from Feb
ruary 12 to 17, will surpass all like ef
forts In this line.
The amount of money to be spent
for the decorative features, labor em
ployed and the wealth of material
being used Insures a treat for the vis
itor to the show.
For weeks 25 young women have
been studiously working eight hours
a day making flowers. These decora
tive features are entwelned with
more than 50,000 feet of genuine lau
rel, through trellis work and over the
booths, giving the entire building ap
pearance of a garden bower.
This mass of red roses and green
laurel has a pure white setting. The
walls have been painted white, all the
trellises and booth furniture are of
like colo.r To this end two tons of
white lead paint has been used.
Against this scheme there are more
than 10,000 small incandescent elec
ttic lights Intertwined. From the cell
ing are dependent 1,000 Dayllte elee
ttlca lglobes, throwing a glare of Il
lumination over the entire structure
that will bo a marvel to the most cri
tical as well as catibual visitor.
This decorative work Is being done
by a force of 50 painters, carpenters
and decorators under the general su
pervision of II. V. Buelow, manager
for the auto show. 'Members of the
Toledo Auto Shows Company admit
that the work accomplished in train
forming the Interior of the Terminal
Auditorium as a place of beauty to
properly display he cars of the Toledo
auto dealers far surpasses that of any
show thus far held.
A HOA1E MADE CRUTCH.
"The parts of a motor vehicle which
suffer most frequently In accidents are
in the front of the car, the front
' heels, steering gear and the axles,"
says Wallace 15. Blood In Motor Age.
"It is a simple matter to equip the
tool box with a few first aid devices
which, providing the accident is a con
ventional one. will permit the owner
to get his car home on Its own power
and after he gets it home repair other
damage in his own garage.
"The writer once saw a home mado
front wheel crutch, constructed from
it caster off an abandoned shop true);,
'i bar of cold rolled steel, a ball thrust
hearing and a nut, with the use of
which a car could be driven home un
der Its own power with but one good
front wheel. The crutch Is illustrated
in Fig. 1.

.Flo- 1 Crutch made Jrom cotter off of

Of course the devlcu would not be
practical over soft or sandy roads be
cause of the small diameter of the
caster wheel. Nevertheless, with hard
roads between himself and home a car
owner could save himself an expen
sive tow if he had such an equipment
hi his tool box.
Cannot Have Too Many.
"Too many good roads? Not a bit
of It. The country has awakened sud
denly to Its greatest asset and Its most
vital need,, and,, .convinced of Uift
urgency of the case, cannot build fast
