Local Dealer Finds That Bi
cycle Not Only Saves Time
But Adds Much to Health
"It develops your health." This
was the essence of short talk on
the reasons why one should ride
a bicycle, which Lloyd Itamsden

gavo a Statesman representative.
A certain dealer of Mr. Rams
den's acquaintance was one day
watching; the crowds of children
going home from school when he
was impressed by the number ot
boys that had skinny underdevel
oped legs. This dealer conceived
the idea of holding a sort of cau
cus to find how the boys who rode
bicycles compared with the ones
who did not.- It is interesting to
note tliat in practically every case
the boy who "rode a bicycle show
ed much better physics develop
ment than the one who did not.
Sir. Itam&den also mentioned
the fact that a bicycle would in a
short time pay for itself in saving
depreciation on a cart left setting
out in the elements.
Another thing that Mr. Rams
den especially mentioned was the
time savingt the? bicycle. Many
times that one is In a hurry he
can take a bicycle and be there
while he would be cranking a car.

The value of bicycling, both
from the standDoint of health and
economy, is very often underesti
mated, according to ; Harry w.
Scott, local bicycle and motor-.
cycle dealer.; Many business menf
clerks and V office workers ride
street cars to their work and do
not stop to consider that their
bodies need a little physical ex
ercise. It would ; not do for peo-
nle of this type to take strenuous
exercise but the easy, free sensa
tion that accompanies the riding-
of a good bicycle makes this form
of exertion a delight. ,. .
"You can save money by riding
a bicvele rather than a street car.
and In addition to this you are
always free to go when you want
to " said Mr. Scott, when com
menting on the virtues of bicycl

advantage of the long : evenings

The Salvation army-budget, cam

not reached the expectations of
Ensign and Mrs. Holbrook but has

a fine testimony as it cleared $325.
There are a number of people who
have, said that after May 1 they
will contribute. .
This campaign is for the year
and the objective is $4000 as It
