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.
Infancy.
Next year 43 state legislatures
will meet, and every one of them
w4H hare before them some legis
lation relating to the automobile.
- Highway commissioners already
-are busy preparing drafts of new,
f ' or amendments of old, laws can
't cerning this phase of motoring. 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

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.

In CO large cities throughout the
country, shows that 135,000 auto
mobile owners drive- to these cities
daily from surrounding towns. By
the same ratio, i( is estimated,
600,000 automobile owners have
been living fceyond the boundaries
of the. city in which they do their
business '-
Bureau of census , officials at
Washington say the tendency now-
ledays is for cities, to expand in
area, rather than increase tneir
population within, former boun
daries. ' -, ... , :
It is all a result of quick and
easy transportation, says automo
bile authorities.
ANTI-SHOCX SPBT5GS.
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.
The men behind these alleged
fraudulent societies open up an
office in either state or national i
capital and from it send circulars (
have ranged from $6 to $39.60.
' Tbe inducement is an offer to
furnish automobile accessories at t
frorn 20 to 50 per cent discount, j
free touring and other information,
cation of membership in the society.
