Parkins automobllea on public
highways is Btrongly condemned
as a public tFuisance by the Ameri
can Automobile Association,' ac
cording to a bulletin just released
through the organization's Tour
ing and. Transportation board at
Washington." D. C. ;
The' basis for the AAA action is
numerous . complaints received
from tourists who hare been both
Inconvenienced and endangered
by persons who park their cars on
the main highways when they
could just as well drive on to a
cross road or open space, It Is sta
ted. '. , " - y
..-In its bulletin the board .states
that it does not sympathize with
the motorist who thinks he would
forfeit a privilege it forbidden to
park on highways because it con
tends that he is not safe in park
ing where there is high speed traf
fic and that he really would bene
fit by being compelled to park
in safer places.
The following suggestions have
been offered by the AAA board :
"Do not seek main highways for
picnic purposes. Use the second
ary roads where there are plenty
of opportunities for parkins off
the road. '.
"In event of puncture try o get
the. car as far off the traveled
portion of the road as possible be
fore changing the tire, and In no
case stop on a curve or near the
top of a hill. ' .
'Never stop opposite a car that
has parked along the road. If
you want to ask your way stop
your car at least 160 feet beyond
and walk back to Inquire.
"You are not safe sitting In
your car while it is parked on a
highway. Furthermore you are a
source of danger to those who aro
obliged to turn out to pass you.
"If you turn into a blind high
way to park have the back of the
car to the main road. When your
car is facing the road motorists
may think you are just driving In
to the road. - They may make a
sudden stop , - before discovering
that your car is not in motion,
and cars following them may be
thrown into a series of rear-end
"Parking a car at night on a
main highway is doubly danger
ous. Tou never know what min
ute the tail light may burn out."

After an unofficial . survey of
the mineral resources along the
government's Alaska railroad,
members of the i United States
Bureau of Mines have recommend

works for treating free-mUllns
ores by plate amalgamation and

Sent to the shop of Robert R.
McDowell' in . Pittsburgh, it had
been shaped and was being polish
ed when - Mr.; McDowell died in
1923. 4 Search revealed no man
able to continue the work except
one In McDowell's shop who was
then working on a lens for Yale.
He turned his attention to the
Michigan lens' In June, and will be
finished with It in six 'months-
Slowness of the work of polishing
Is due to the fact that each three
minutes of polishing demands a
wait of 60 minutes for cooling. .
Eventually, after Its trial test

new lens will become part of the
