After mora than 25 rears of de- Telopment, the automobile Indua try bai not yet settled down to a known basts. -. Especially in reference to the - control of motoring is this true. Laws are still being passed, prob lems - propounded and solutions sought for the ultimate benefit of the automobile driver and pedes- trlan.- All point to the fact that motoring, . although more than a V quarter century old, Is still In its.

At the same time, state attorneys are ' ready to submit legislation covcr ' Inc the safety and convenience of the public as It is affected by, the j S far as highway legislation is concerned, there will be proposals for the passage of state laws in " compliance and cooperation with the federal aid laws. Tbe matter 'of theft prevention, motor car reg , istration, control of headlights and . . rear lights, automatic signals and ' other regulations of automobile ;' . driving are still to be threshed out Laws on motor taxes and fees also will be perused for changes and corrections. ' : Uniform traffic laws are being I sought throughout the union, and v these will take up considerable time of the legislators in nearly ev . ' ery one of tbe 43 states .whose bodies meet in 1923. Grade cross Ing elimination is another import ant problem to solve. Besides these there are the sub . Jects of highway enforcement, snow removal and dozens of oth er, although less important, mat ters to be taken up. TO CLEAN FEED PIPE. Blowing through the fuel or oil fejed pipe to clear it of obstructions does not clear the line of a gummy substance that persists in sticking to the inner lining. A more effec- tive method is in passing a piece of cloth through the pipe ,by at- tuchlng each end to a wire. By ... .wv.. uuwa iui ui, me "ne is sure to De thoroughly rltaned. I KEEP HOOD TIGHT. ! A rnhhpr lennh attached to the hood clamps is a new . method to keen the hood from rattling, The whole piece is now being sold on the mar ket. The clamp not only holds the hood down tightly, but keeps it firmly against the chassis. FACTORY- CITIES. L Will the cities of the future be come mere Industrial centers sur rounded by suburbs of homes? This is a possibility which is made the more apparent by the in fluence the automobile is having on city and country life.

Jars and shocks -are said to be considerably reduced by the use of a spring-like "shock absorber" manufactured especially for use on a small car. The springs are at tached to the chassis, as hown without interference with the reg ular spring work. There is a spe cial size for trucks. BE W A BE MOTOR SOCIETIES. i Washington, D. C. A warning against joining fraudulent automo bile associations has been issued here by Fred Caley, secretary of the National Motorists' associa tion. The warning comes after atten tion of the associati6n officials had been called to the organization throughout the country of various "socities" which were selling mem berships to automobile owners.
