important for a. successful "mental

.Many autolsts make long cross

driving greatly increased toward
the end of thoso long dally tours.
Investigation shows but tho "re
creatlonlsts" often return to work
tired and worn instead of refreshed.
Whilo long journeys aro not to be
discouraged if thero is sufficient
time, many motorists after making

such experiences. Tho touring bu
