These lectures were given by Professor
Carpenter, of Cornell. Mr. Carpenter Is
past president of the American Soci
ety of Mechanical Knglneera and at
one time was consulting engineer of
the White Motor Car Company of
Cleveland. Mr. Sladle la thoroughly
acquainted with the underlying prin
ciples of motor car construction and
has had five years' practical experi
ence. In this position there are splendid op
portunities for teaching drafting and
English. A concise and definite knowl
edge la the end sought and the work
of the classroom Is closely connected
with the work of the shop, so that
the theory and practical phasea of the
automobile business are developed.

and to fall In with Frank Davidson, of
Hood River Orchard Company. Mr. Da-

little party and drive np to the snow

maauincently In the sunshine. The
next morning, about o'clock. we

handled that big car over the rough

kllllng lava rock, kept us marvellng
Uirough the greater pan or tna trip.
"Rut. to begin the story right. I
must pay tribute to the Incredible
beauty of the drive through the or
chard country In the early morning.
Only those who have been In Hood

with the fragrant pink and white

leaving Hood River, wa took the
old road, once the most popular route
to Mount Hood, leading out towards
Peril's Punch IlowL Of course, the Im
provement of the road out from The
DalKa has made that route the lead
ing one for autolsts to Mount Hood.
The old road from Mount Hood Is not
used a great deal, but for natural
beauty all along the way and mag
nificence of view from the higher eleva
tion, this old route would be hard to
surpass, and the roads, at this time of
Tear, are in fair condition.
" -All through the wildly beautiful
section around the Devil's Punch Bowl
the roads are good, and It la not until
one strikes the old lava flows that
there is need of any caution driving.
Uttle Claude Davidson took the wheel
as soon as we bad got out into the
country, and he drove all the way
through, until within a mile or so of
the snow line. The old lava looms up
In great dykes for several mi lea and
the road through thia section la very
narrow, with flinty juttlnga and loose
chips of this hard, sharp lava rock.
The boy steered the big car through
with a skill and eaae any experienced
driver might be proud of, and the way
he managed to miss all those spikes
and sharp-cornered stonea kept us con
Out beyond the lava overflow wa
came Into the varied beauty of the Elk
Rock country, and later on climbed up
to the region of huckleberry fields, an
other Interesting Incident of the trip.
Rich Ceaatr? Traversed.
-After leaving Hood River, and as
we climbed steadily, wa began to leave
the apple orchards and strawberry
fields behind. Once or twice we saw
eloquent examples of why the orchard
Ists had not ventured Into the higher
elevations, despite the temptation of
the rich soil and abundant moisture.
One orchard, too high up. had appar
ently escaped for a couple of years,
for the trees had grown to a good
sixe. but as wa passed we saw that the
branchea had ail been broken down by
the snows, and the trunks of the trees
were mere dead sticks. Huckleberries
and vegetables, however, were thriving
all along the way, wherever wa passed
a clearing hewed out of the forest by
some hardy believer ln the "back to
the soil' movement.
-Another Interesting Incident of the
trip waa the stop at a wonderful spring
of pure sweet mountain water. This
waa the largest spring any of the
party had ever seen, and the water
fairly gushed out rrom tne case or a
huge rock. I waa told that thia sprtng
Is owned and being held by a man who
Intends later to sell It for a water sup
ply to the lower country. It la ad
mirably aituated for this purpose, aa
gravity would add force to the amaa
lng flow of water.
Delirious Feast Prepared.
"We reached the anow line shortly
before noon, and enjoyed one of the
most magnificent panoramic views I
have ever looked upon. When the
good roads movement actually gets un
der way In Oregon, the road to thia
point should certainly not be over
looked. "We made the trip down In about
two hours, and arrived at the David
son residence with appetltea whetted
to a keen appreciation of the delicious
viands which were spread and walt-ng
tor us. Mrs. Davidson Is one of the
women responsible for Hood River's
famous reputation for hospitality, and
In typical Hood River fashion had ar
ranged for a luncheon that waa noth

message from Hood River gave warn

Statistics compiled by E. S. Foljam
be. editor of the Commercial Car Jour
nal, throw an interesting and surpris
ing light on the growth of the auto
mobile Industry in general and the
truck division in particular. Accord
ing to the Philadelphia editor's figures
30.000 commercial motor vehicles will
be produced during 1913. Thus, in One
year, the total number of motor trucks
In use will be doubled.
In a period covering less than a
dozen years the motorcar Industry has
leaped from an Insignificant place to
third position In the rank of American
Industries. Twelve years ago there
were less than 3000 automobiles In use
in the United States; now there are
more than 660.000 being used.
The dally production of pleasure
cars during the year 111 reached the
surprising figure of 700 per day and
thia number will be exceeded at the
present rate of 1)11.
Commercial cara have not been a
factor until the last three years. There
are now over 200 American manufac
turers of pleasure cars and 280 mak
ers of trucks.
Up to 111 registration flgurea show
25.451 commercial vehicles in use.
In a canvass It waa ascertained that
73 per cent of all users of commercial
cars. In every line of business,
throughout the United States, are un

have no reason for telling you it's worth two
thousand or three thousand or five thousand
We have no desire to sell the Paige by such
assertions. It-sells fast enough on the strength
of plain old-fashioned truth.

that's the price we would ask. And so would the

they're giving you anywhere from one to four

it to you to figure out how they can do it. They
can't and they don't. And when they try to sell on
such : a basis it naturally leaves a lot of real
doubt in your mind as to the actual downright,
honest-to-goodness value of their product
The Paige is not a $2000 car. It is just the best auto
mobile you can buy anywhere for a thousand dollars, a
welklesigned, well-built car comfortable, speedy and
enduring and fully equipped. We honestly believe that
you'll have to pay at least two or three hundred dollars
more to get as good value in most of the other cars.
Pi Don't buy your new car until you have gone all over
- the Paige studied it in every detail of construction
compared it carefully with other cars selling at Paige
