profound , Impression.
With tha Olldden tour at an and. It la
possible to look back and sea certain
errora in tha rules that will have to be
corrected before the tour Will be entirely
fair to all the contestant.
Daf acta of the Balsa,
J. D. Maxwell, vice-president of tha
Maxwell-Urlscoe Motor company. In an
Interview after the tour ended, aald:
"To my mind the tour Just passed was
aa aevere aa it la necessary to mace ii.
The publlo do not want a teat which la
calculated to break machines up. What
they do want la a contest which approx
imates actual touring conditions. One
thing la certain, and that la that no
orlvata owner would never tubJect his
car to auch trying conditions aa those 1
wnicn tne uiidaenites experiences.
"One glaring defect has manlfeatad
Itself in the rules, and this undoubtedly
will have to b changed before another
tour. According to the condltiona no
car could replace any broken part unlesa
-tie carried that extra part with him. To
ahow how unfairly thla worka out, I will
cite an example of one of our own cara:
Vo Extras Allowed.
"While running along a bad road, a
rsrolectlnr atone carried awav tha truaa
rod from tha rear axle. Tha oost of
replacing thla rod would have been but
10 cents, vet under the condltiona of the
tour and because we had failed to bring
along an extra truss rod. It waa neces
sary to run without It. TKa expected
naturally followed the axle sagged and
tha car had to be withdrawn.
"Now take for an example another
car which breaks, for Instance, an en-,
glnev According to the terms of tha
conteat both cara had to be withdrawn.
One of them could have been fixed up
with a 60-cent repair, while the other
repair was -out of question, yet both
were penalised the same amount.
- "Such little points as these ara hard
to foresee and It will probably take the
experience gained irom one or even two
mora toura to formulate a act of rulea
that will ba entirely fair to alL Per
sonally, I am a great believer In the
Olldden tour. It la a credit to the Amer
ioan automobile Industry that aa many
cars finished as did."

HOWARD M. COVEY RIDICULES
; BAKER AUTOMOBILE ORDINANCE
Howard M. Corey, a member of the
board of directors of tha Portland Auto
mobile club, and a prominent auto
dealer, doesn't think wall of. the pro
posed Baker ordinance concerning tha
driving of automobllea In Portland.
Ha rldiouiea Bakers idea ex reatnot
Ing speed within tha city limits to two
miles an hour. '
"Two miles an hourr exolaJmea Mr;
Covey. "Why, a man would better get
out and walk. There Is at present a
oltr ordinance restricting speed to eight
mllea an hour, and that la certainly
alow enough. No man la going to drive
hla car all over town at tha rata of
two tnllaa an hour Tn tha crowded
city district, at tha street crossings, it
is proper u reauce me epeea oi ine
machine to almoat nothing, and moat
drivers do so, but out In the residence
districts a competent man ean drive
Drettr fast with safety to the nubile"
Concerning tha proposition of making
every driver pass an examination De
fore he la allowed to run a oar, Mr.
Covay hlnka thay ara putting tha cart
before' the horse.
"How la a man going to peso aa ex
amination in auto-driving until he has
had some experience In running a car
hlroeelfr he declared. A beginner baa
to learn In some way, and unless they
can force the auto tyro to take hie ear
outside the city llmits'and there strug-
Sa to obtain tns neoeasary anowieage
pass an examination, I don't see how
they'll manage It
"It may ba vary wall to have a driver
pass an examination before be can be
come airofeaBlonal chauffeur, and re
oelve a license, but to place auch a re
striction on the amateur, who drlvea
hla oar for pleasure, seems to me to
ba very Impractical" I
Tba Baker ordinance proposes that
all peraons under It yaare of age shall
be prohibited by law from running a
machine. Mr. Covay declares that many
Portland children make aa rood cnaur-
feura aa an adult and he thlnke that
tha passage of thia clause would work
an Injuatice on them. He la acquainted
with a number or gins and ooys wno
are runnme tneir own macninea, ana
he says that he has found them to be
ruuy aa carerui aa peraons oi a more
mature age, and In other ways quite aa
oomnetent aa tha averare amateur.
Mr. Covey says there la one way of
protecting the publlo against autos that
iw uviivr man mil m vruiiwnun ni"
ulattng apeed that could ba passed, and
that ia to make the driver absolutely
responsible for . any damage done by
hla car while ha la guiding- It When
tha driver knows that It'a up to him
to be careful of Ufa and property or
suffer very serious consequences .of his
careleaaneea, he's not very likely to be
reckless. In Europe the automoblllat
la regulated In thia way and It worka
' "Moat of the socalled reckless
driving which frightens pedestrian a,
aaya Mr. Covey, "ia done, not by ama
teurs, but by professional And moat
of tha time It Is not nearly so reck
