Buenos Aires Has Scheme to Safe
PONTIAC, Mich.. March 16.
During the month of February, the
Oakland Motor Car company broke
all previous Oakland sales records
for a single month. Sales for Feb
ruary exceeded the previous record
month of June, 1919, by over 1000
The figures show a 300 per cent
increase over February, 1923, and
are more than 59 per cent great
er than February, 1919, which
was the previous record February
During the last five months per
iod, starting with October 1st, one
month after the new models were
introduced, the total of Oakland
cars sold was greater than the
same five months periods in 1919
and 1920, which held the prev
ious sales record for these months.
Two other monthly records also
went tumbling, when sales for No
vember and December beat the
previous high November and De
cember of 1919.
Iluenos Aires is soon to have a
try at the subway street crossing
scheme so often discussed as a par
tial solution of the traffic difficul
ties of North American cities if the
intendente ratifies a motion re
cently passed by the city council.
The details of the plan have not
yet been worked out, but the coun
cil has been assured that the
scheme can be satisfactorily
adapted to conditions. It is pro
posed to give it a try-out at one
or two of the busiest corners, with
the possibility that if it proves suc
cessful, similar construction will
be undertaken at a number of
points in the downtown district.
Dainty Frenchman Refuses
Service From Dirty Hands
HAVRE, Feb. 26. Jean Durand
went into court recently in support
of the gospel of clean hands. He
was arrested because he refused to
give his railroad ticket to the con
ductor on the train from Paris.
"He wore no gloves," ' Durand
explained to the desk - sergeant,
"and who knows how many mi
crobes had gathered on his hands
from the tickets of others?"
The police let Durand off with
the admonition hereafter to obey
the law that requires tickets to be
presented, even' to ungloved trainmen.

Another step toward becoming
a wholly self-contained automobile
factory was taken by the Olds Mo
tor Works this week when its pro
duction line and that of the new
Fisher Body Corporation's plant
in Lansing, Mich., were joined and
the first closed car body moved
through the archway separating
the two buildings. The Olds Motor
Works now is one of the few auto
mobile factories in the world
where all of its bodies are built at
the same place the chassis and en
gines are manufactured.
The change eliminates the ship
ping of Oldsmobile closed bodies
to Lansing, and removes any
chance of the bodies being dam
aged in shipment. It also will
permit an enlarged production sch
edule, which is badly needed to
meet the big demands for the new
Last November the Fisher Body
Corporation, in conjunction with
A. B. C. Hardy, president and gen
eral manager of OldB Motor Works'
announced that the Fisher organi
sation would take over a modern
three-tory unit of the Olds plant
for the exclusive construction of
Oldsmobile closed bodies. Engi
neers and body experts of the Fish
er organization supervised the lay
out of the plant and Installation
of new machinery.
The finished plant was inspected
by Fred Fisher, head of the cor
poration, last week, and he declar
ed that it was the most efficient
plant in the world for the econ
omic and quick production of qual
ity closed bodies.

ported. "The impression seems to
have been that the dealers were
seeking a monopoly on used car
"In both these cases, and in a
number of others which have been
reported to me by other dealers,
the owners have been amply sat
isfied when the Appleby plan has
teen explained correctly. In both
these cases, the cars were ap
praised and the owners declared
that their treatment had been
much better than anticipated.
"As a matter of fact, the mar
ket is designed to aid owners in
disposing of their old cars, rather
than hinder them. Our only con
nection is to provide the outlet
through which their cars can be
rold to best advantage. The mar
ket is run by the public alone shall
dictate the values allowed for old
cars. No dealer in Salem has any
control or voice over this.
"Naturally, the markets cannot
succeed unless they have cars to
sell, and in order to get cars to
rell, they must be appraised at i
I-rice satisfactory to the owners.
On the other hand, the market
can not succeed unless the cars
are sold, as well as taken in. In
oracr 10 sen tne cars, tne ap
praisals must not be for more than
they are worth. In each case, the
car owner or buyer has full power
u. tell our manager what they
majr allow for old cars in order
to move them through the market.
"Incidentally, the public receives
a material saving owing to the fact
that all of the dealers handle their
trades through a central clearing
house, the Individual overheads
are cat down, and this' is reflected
to the owners in reduced selling
