baker Corporation of America. News
of Mr. McCarty's promotion became
known here last week only a short time
before he left Portland for South Bend
to take up his new duties.
The importance of his new post is in
dicated from the fact that there are
only two assistant sales managers. His
advancement is regarded by Mr. Mc
carty's many friends here as a recogni
tion of his fine work as northwest
manager for the company.
Since he came to Portland in January,
1917, from Dallas, Tex., where he was
manager of a Studebaker branch, sales
of Studebaker cars in this territory,
which includes Oregon, Washington
and the northern part of Idaho, have
Increased to an enormous extent.
While the war was in progress, the ter
ritory also included British Columbia.
Worked His Way Up.
Mr. McCarthy has been with the
Studebaker corporation since he was a1
mere youngster starting on his way.
He began as file clerk at the factory at
South Bend, 17 years ago, when Stude
baker wagons and farm vehicles were
Its main output. That was before the
Studebaker company had begun the
manufacture of automobiles.
For 12 years he was in the vehicle
division at the factory. Five years ago
he was sent to Portland as manager of
the vehicle division here on the east
Eide. From this post he was promoted
to manager of the Dallas, Tex., branch,
where he got into the automobile end
of the business. From Dallas he was
eent back to Portland two years later
as Studebaker northwest manager, and
now comes his further advancement to
assistant general sales manager.
Mr. McCarty and his wife, during
their residence here, have made a host
of warm friends. They are both active
members of the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic club. Mrs. McCarty and their
two children will Join Mr. McCarty at
South Bend within the next two or
three weeks.
Clilcaso Man Successor.
Mr. McCarty la succeeded in Portland
as northwest manager for the Stude
baker corporation by J. K. Leander of
Chicago, who comes to Portland from
Denver, where since January be has
been manager of a district branch of
the Studebaker corporation there,
which he opened at that time.
He was sent to Denver by the com
pany following his discharge in De
cember aa first lieutenant and officer
instructor at the machine gun school
at Camp Hancock.
Prior to entering the service, how
ever, Mr. Leander had been for six
and one-half years with the Studebaker
corporation, virtually all of that time
In Chicago. His first Studenaker con
nection was as wholesale man at the'
Chicago branch. Two years ago he was
made district manager of the branch.
Like Mr. McCarty, he is a young man
of the hustling, energetic type who
become Studebaker executives.
Mr. Leander arrived In Portland last
week and is now In charge of the
ditures in a businesslike way," says J.
D. Mansfield, general sales manager of
the Dort Motor Car company.
"This fallacy also descends to the
family motor car. Too many motorists
fail to keep a record of operating costs.
"The result is that often they operate
cars at a loss. By this I mean that they
neglect to get the best and most eco
nomical results from running their cars
because they don't know what these
are. It is simple to remember big items.
Those stick. But it isn't so hard, after
all, to keep track of gasoline, tire and
oil costs.
"If every motorist would do this he'd
be surprised at the things the figures
would suggest. A little change in the
mixture, realignment of the wheels or
some other minor adjustment would re
sult and in turn would bring better
and cheaper service."
Tourist Gets Long Mileage From a
Goodrich Tire.
ASHLAND. Or.. Sept. 13. (Special.)
-"Eleven thousand miles on a Good
rich tire and the old bunk of rubber
apparently still good for thousands
more," was the tire comment made by
J. R. Bymhold of Portland in regard
to the luck he had experienced on his
automobile trip to southern Oregon, at
the Lithia park auto camp in Ashland
recently. Mr. Bymhold made this trip
via McKenzie pass. Bend and Crater
lake with a brief excursion over into
California from 'Klamath falls before
landing at the camp.
The 11, 000-mile tire was the center
of an interesting group of tourists who
never fail to gather for a "fanning"
bee when the day's drive is over and
camp "pitched." Mr. Bymhold has made
several trips through Oregon in the
past two years, driving over rough
mountain roads for the most part. The
tire has outworn two complete sets en
the other wheels.

But Oregon Waits.
HELENA. Mont, Sapt. JO About
1000 signs have been distributed and
are being put up under the auspices
of chambers of commerce and commer
cial clubs, marking the national parks
highway across the entire state. This
highway already has been marked, it
is stated, in Minnesota, North Dakota
and Washington, and when the Mon
tana signs are all In place motorists
may find their way from Twin Cities
to Seattle without difficulty.
and, to Judcre from his enthusiasm,
he will continue to talk about 'em for
several weeks to come.
He and Mrs. Leavens had been on a
business trip to southern Oregon In
their Buick six. When they reached
brants pass on their return, they de
cided, having heard so much about the
caves that they would take time for
the side trip to go and see them. The
caves are about 37 miles south and
west of Grants Pass in the mountains.
While the trip is not a difficult one
to make, it is a two or three day af
fair, according o the hurry you hap
pen to be in. because part of the way
must be made on horse back.
From Grants Pass to Cave camp, 27
miles, and the end of automobile navi
gation, Mr. Leavens found the road
very good. There he and Mrs. Leavens
camped for the night, and next morn
ing engaged horses at $3.50 per day
to cover the remaining ten miles to
the caves.
Take Yar Teat AIona-
Incidentally, folks going to the caves
are warned by Mr. Leavens to tak
alor.g their camping and cooking
things, for there are no hotel accom
modations at Cave camp. Tourists pitch
the!r tents at this camp under beautl
ful fir trees or else sieep out in the
opn without any shelter except that
of the woods. It is important to un
derstand that this much of roughing
it is necessary on the part of those
who visit the oaves.
Karly in the morning they set out on
their horses from Cave camp over the
government trail to the entrance of
the ctves. The oaves some time ago
were set aside by congress as a na
tional monument, and are under gov
ernment supervision. At 1 o'clock
every afternoon a guide In govern
ment employe, who makes no charge
for his services, escorts any persons
who are there r.nd ready for the trip
throvgh the caves.
There are two entrances to the caves,
one the upper one, 285 feet higher up
the side of the mountain under which
these remarkable caves extend. The
guide took the party in which were
Mr. and Mrs. L;avens in by the lower
entrance and brought them out at the
upper one.
"It 'as about a three and one-half-hour
trip," said Mr. Leavens, "and cer
tainly a wonderful experience. We
would not have missed it for anything.
We traveled about three miles under
ground, our guide told us, during the
three and one-half hours we were in
the, caves.
