They are made with bine bodies
and black Rear and finishing; a
dark blue that harmonizes finely
with the Jet fnaroel. 7 The bodies

with crank-operated . automatic

(ban many other cars. They look
as comfy as an old shoe. The
closed car is, coining more and
more Into favor. The day Is al
most .here when "dealers would
think no more' of placing an open
car in competition with the closed
styles, as to bny one with only
three wheels instead of four. For
rain or dust, for beat or cold,
for almost every weather extreme
or, ordinary condition, tbe closed
cars are gaining ground faster
even than the buzz wagon gained

as real surprises even to the most

hv no more leisure hours tor
reading and that the nation would
consequently degenerate below its
present standard of culture.
Since then, of courre, it has
been proved pretty definitely that
exactly the reverse is true. The
automobile saves such an enor
mous amount of time that people
have more opportunity than eer
to read. There is no danger that
the motor car and culture will
ever conflict.
As a matter of fact, there are a
number of librarians in the conn
try today who will tell you that
the automobile is helping them in
troduce i traces of culture into
communities that would otherwise
fail to develop appetite for book::
for years to come. These librari

Introducing the motorized library,
and the success which has attend
ed their efforts indicates that it
is one of the certain American in-
titutions of the iuture.
Particular success with the mo
torized library is found in tiie
case of Noblesville, Ind., a city of
about 5000, situated about 20
miles north of Indianapolis. In
an exceedingly interesting article
describing the methods and re
sults employed in delivering the
library to the farmer's door. Miss
L,ula M. Miesse, Xoblesville's li
brarian says:
We tried both adult and juve
nile stations in schoolhotises and
homes and found the adult section
was not well patronized. The
country schools are open only five
days a week and only six months
year. So the house to houisfe
plan of service was determined
upon. We visited some other
cities, where library autos were in
use, and after looking over vari
ous chassis and trucks, we decided
upon a Dodge Brothers Business
car. In the first place it did not
need a great deal of remodeling
for our purpose. It was strongly
tvilt and highly recommended by
people who were using it, for dur
ability under bard service, which
wo knew our car must receive.
"The seats were already com
fortable. We had the wire screens
and the entire back removed. The
steel sides were bent over seven
inches and used , for shelves in
front of the book case. Inside the
car we built our book cases of oak
with glass doors opening outward
on botn sides of the truck, so
that it advertises its own wares as
it travels over the country. The
shelves slant slightly back to hold
the books away from the glass

runs, but we- must add at least
five to these in order to cover it
Some of our trips are Ion?. Num
ber one, for Instance, is 42 miles
long and begins and ends 10 miles
from Noblesville. We have driven
our car through fresh gravel, mud
and over ice. As we travel four
days a week we cannot wait for
good roads. The work is very in
teresting and grows more so as
the librarians and tbe people get
better acquainted. The demand for
books has been so great that it
has been almost impossible to sat
isfy both tbe city and the country,
as we were not expecting and not
wen enough prepared for the
voracious appetite for reading
matter which we created.

other for children's books. We
carry about 300 books on the
shelves and extra fiction and juv

greatest demand, but we also cir
culate books on farming, travel

almost SI 00 homes and has about
1500 patrons, the circulation run-

will give more service when the
remainder of oar territory is or
ganized. It is the most interest
ing library work we have ever
one and we hope all of Indiana
may have similar service in the
near future."

That the American automobile
association's recent decision to in
crease its individual membership
dues has not appreciably lessened
the number of new application's
nor deterred old members from
renewing is well evidenced by the
huge daily in-flow of remittances.
according to advices from A, A.

The decision to Increase dues
was reached at the August
meeting of the A. A, A. executive
board, and was prompted by the
need of more money" to finance
the activities of the organization
In setting a figure for the in
creased dues, it was the aim oX
the executive committee not only
to obtain sufficient revenue to
take care of the present overhead
expenses hut to allow a margin
for a widening of tha organize
tion'a activities.
In addition to enlarging its
road charting, map-making and
legislative activities, it is planned
to add several features frequently
urged by members and which will
make strong appeal to motortst3
generally. Among these are the
establishment of an automobile
Insurance department and a legal-
aid bureau. Also there will be re
newed an intensive effort to es
tablish national motoring - reel
