Manv arguments for and against a ?how are advanced by those who are or and those who are against a show. Th ayes claim that an exhibition of motor cars should he held in March or the early part of April. This Is the time of year when prospective purchasers are looking at the diner ent makes. The public will flock to the show and is enabled to see all the differ ent models under one roof. Dealers also state that they can have more people see what they have to sell than they can get into their sales room In a year. The nays are of the opinion that "the game Is not worth the candle." They put forth the argument that the amount the show will cost them in money and effort would bring much better results if applied in an indi vidual campaign and some say there is surn a aemana zor oearver.ee ib um spring that It is a difficult matter to obtain suxrieient mooeis ior exniDi tlon purposes. ?n decision has vSt been made, but whether El Paso will or will not have a show this year will probably be threshed out to a finish at the next meeting of the araoctauon. great prosperity in Japan and like wise has oreatly boosted production costs.

IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE Send for Bookklet BONDED OIL COMPANY Lake Charles, Louisiana TO KEEP SERVICE MEN BUSY In order to keep his service men busy this winter and avoid much of the rash for tractors repairs in the spring, an Indiana Implement dealer has planned to store and overhaal tractors for bis customers during the winter months. He has sent out letters telling them of this service, ana reports that several farmers have asked to have their machines put In shape so that thev would be ready for the first spring work. A reasonable charge will be made for the work and the dealer can retain his service men through out the winter without keeping them at a loss. This plan, with certain modifica tions to specific conditions, may be used to solve a similar nroblem for a larje number of dealers who have an established tractor trade, while some dealers have Insufficient stor age space to Justify the plan men- uonea aoove. 7m they mav well srive consideration to winter tractor over hauling on the farm. It has been A suggested that dealers xnlgM fit up a wagon, car or truck with neces sary repair equipment and send the repair men out to- the farms to do tho overhauling. This has some ad vantages over the method of bring ing In the tractors to the storage house, since the farmer and his help might be able to gain Information by watching the overhauling opera tion that would enable them to handle their own repair service later on. An essential In this case would be a well ventilated bmldinxr on (the farm that could be made Into a sausiaetory worasnop. Whether the method of taking the tractors into town or of making the repairs on the farm Is- used, either one will simplify the repair problem in tne spring. wnen spring woric opens with a rush every tractor owner wants to get into the field with this outfit as soon as possible, and a delay occasioned by any tractor trouble causes considerable dissatisfaction. The majority of farmers are not yet properly trained In caring for their machines when Idle and a good many cases of rusted valves, leaky radiators and similar troubles are likely to develon unless the matter is ljiven some attention by the dealer. CARS IS FAST PASSING FAD A high grade motor car fs designed to give high grade trans portation, not to answer the de mands of some passing fad." says fi ll. Hill is, vice president of distribu tion of the Packard Motor Car com pany. "Whims have as little place in the body design of sueh ears aa. "Imagine the Pullman company, which is In the business of provid ing first class transportation, an nouncing new models In sleeping cars each .year, trying to throw the previous models Into discard. The ridiculousness of such a thing Is ap parent. "it was not so long ago that pas senger cars were called "pleasure cars, and since that time the auto mobile Industry has seen a world of change. Perhaps that change may oest oe described: by saying that there are fewer people spending money on motor cars now they are Investing money, and doing it la a volume never before eanaled In tha history of the industry. This means tnat the automobile is recognised as an Immense factor In the world's scheme of transportation. Improve ments and refinements will certainly be made in standards, but as far as hlgtt grade motor cars are concerned tne day or s weening changes has gone." FRANKLIN AUTOMOBILE CO.
