Many of the Smaller Details
of the Motor Laws Are
Not Observed.
Overloaded and H,ecdlng Trucks
Will It Carefully Watched, Mtale
Tralfic Officer States Will
Arrest Offender.
There are a great many of the
luwa and rules pelntive to motor ve
hicles that are dally vlulated by a
large uuuiber of people, J. J. Mc
Muhon, slate traffic officer, atatea.
Many of these violaliona are caused
by a lack of knowledge concerning
Ihe law and the atate does not desire
to deal harshly with offenders until
they have had an opportunity to
learn the law In respect lo their vio
lations. For their own protection he
advises persona driving motor ve
hicles to procure copies of lite atate
vehicle law and sluuy Ihem care
fully. These may be procured from
any peace officer or by writing to the
secretary of state.
One frequent violation la In the
driving of horse-drawn vehicles. All
such vehicles muBt carry lights at
night, Mr. McMuhon says, and the
driver Is liable to arrest and flue If
a light Is nut displayed In compliance
with the law.
It Is also provided that approach
Ing automobiles must dim their
lights. The stale recognizes no pat
ent lens and even If such lens are in
use dimming must be observed.
Another rule which Is little known
and seldom observed governs pedes
trians along public roads and high
ways. It Is commonly thought that
pedestrians should keep to the right
and in following the highway should
go In the snme direction as Ihe traf
fic. Thin, however, l:i not correct.

should take the left side of the higb
Iwuy and thua face tire traffic. This
'prevents accidents, the officer statea.
'us otherwise approaching vehicles
cnnie mi unseen while if the pedes
trian is on the left side the vehicle
is coming toward him.
Another section of Ihe law applies
to rates of speed iu the vicinity of
school houses. This applies uot only
to ciiy schools but also to rural
schools. When cars are passing rural
(schools they must not travel faster
than 12 miles per hour, according to
the law. Th other speed limits are
30 miles per hour on the highways.
20 miles per hour In cities and
towns where there are no limits ap
plied by the city governments, and
12 miles per hour on intersections.
Overloaded trucks are also fre
quently driven over the highways.
Mr. McMahon states, and In the fu
ture this luw will be rigidly enforced
as well as Ihe law regarding the
speed of loaded trucks. The traffli
officer has been using a loadometer
and has been checking up on loaded
trucks along the highway. Three
arrests have been made, I. J. Goff.
.1 A. Brown and C. W. Lundeen each
paying fines of $15 for driving over
muiicti trucks. This law Is being en
forced strictly for the protection ul

34 4 billions In 1913.
But this increase In dollars did
net represent a like Increase In pro
duction. Most of it was due to the
rise iu prices, for the dollar of 19 1
and 1919 was a much less efficient
dollar than that of 1913. The ac
tual total of commodities produced
Increased very little. If at all, and a
large part of those which were pro
duced were war materials, not of a
kind really benefitting consumers.
Consequently, Individual Incomes,
estimated on a per capita basis, ris
ing from $340 in 191" and $354 In
1913, to $586 In 1918. represented
more dollars but little or no real In
crease because the $586 of 1918 is
equivalent to only $372 In terms of
the purchasing power of 1913.
These are the most Important find
ings of the National Bureau of Eco
nomic Research, made public today
In advance of the formal publication
of the results of a year's study of
"Income iu the United Stales." This
study, the most exhaustive ever made
of the Income question In this coun
try, has been conducted by WVslcy
Clair Mitchell, Willford I. KinK.
Frederick R. Macaulay and Oswald
W. Knauth. under the auspices of
a board of nineteen directors, inrlud
lng men prominent in many fields of
business, education, labor, agricul
ture, economics and practical statis
tics, and representing many diver
gent points of view.
Distribution of Income.
The report Bays that only one out
of a hundred (1 per cent) Income re
ceivers In the United States In 1918
had Incomes of $8000 or more, and
that this one per cent had 14 per
cent of the national Income. Five
ner cent, representing incomes above
$3200, had 26 per cent of the total.
Ten per cent. Including Incomes
above $2300. had near 35 per cent
of ths total: the most prosperous 20
per cent. Including Incomes auove
$1750, had about 47 per eent; 80
per cent of the Income receivers had
incomes below $1750. receiving
about 63 per cent of the total In
come. Shares of Lalwr and Capital.
In moBt of the years since 1913.
the bureau finds that In the princi
pal organized Industries, wages and
salaries were about 70 per cent of
the total Income: while capital I In
cluding management) received about
30 per cent, out of whleh were paid
-.,. Intareut anil liroHtS! Illlt tlieKU
proportions varied materially wilhj
relative prosperity and depression. I
In 1916. for example, me snare oi
capital increased to about 35 per
cent, with 65 per cent to labor, while
in 1919 capital's share fell to about
22 per cent, while labor got 78. Of
the total payments to emptovss. In
Ihe highly organized Industries,
about 92 per cent goes to the man
ual workers and clerical "laffs, while
8 per cent goes lo officials.
Share of the Fanner.
The furniers, vho, during the past
decade, hnva made lip about 16 per
rent of the total of the gainfully em
ployed, had from 12 to 13 per cent
of the national Income In the years
between 1910 and 1916 Inclusive:
since 1917 they nave ben receiving
16 lo 17 per eent, or a somewhat
higher proportion, as the following
figures from th report show:
1910 12.9 per cent
1911 11.9 per cent
1912 12.3 per cent
1913 12.6 per cent
1914 12.9 per pent
1915 13.1 per cent
1916 12 8 per cent

Source or Production.
' As tor the sources of the natlonul
Income, the bureau finds, taking a
general average since 1910, that the
agriculture contributes about 17
per cent of the total, manufacturing
about 30 per rent, transportation
about 9 per cent, government about
5 per cent, mining a little more than
3 per cent, banking a little over 1
per cent. The many miscellaneous
employments, professional men, re
tailers, Jobuers. merchants, domes
tics, etc., too numerous to list speci
fically, contributed 33 per cent. In
other words, our highly-organized
industries, even If we include all
manufacturing, mining, transporta
tion, banking and government ac
tivities, such as education and road
building, produce only about half of
the national Income. The rest Is
due to the efforts of the small Inde
pendent workers.

No other Phonograph

No other phonograplt even dares the test which '
the New Edison underwent last Monday, before
a large audience at the Presbyterian church.
That fact is something for you to think about.
The test of comparison with living artists is
the only phonograph test which means anything.
It is the only way in which a phonograph can
irrefutably prove its realism. It is the most
drastic of all phonograph tests. To sustain it,
requires absolutely perfect realism, nothing
Last1 Monday eve, the New Edison stood by
Helen Clark's side in the Presbyterian church. If
you were there, you heard the living voice and the
Rc-Created voice brought into direct comparison.
You know that there was no difference between
the two voices.
A similar test was made by Joseph Phillips
with Rc-Creations- of his baritone selections.
Again the same astonishing result there was no
diirerence between Re-Creatcd voice and living'
By this wonderful performance, the New Edi
son has placed itself apart from all other phono
graphs and talking machines. It alone has sus
tained this drastic test. It alone has proved con
cretely and conclusively, that it gives you the
living performances of great artists.
'The Phonograph with a Soul"
Any Official laboratory Model you buy in our
store will positively sustain the test made at the
Presbyterian church. We will give you our guar
antee to that effect.
Come in and hear this instrument in some fur
ther tests of its realism. Ixarn that you can
have an Official Laboratory Model of your own,
on a very small cash outlay. We will make a
gentleman's agreement with any music lover.
