The aturdlness of Dodge Broth

negotiate these ; hazardous tralla,
has won for them the .admiration
ot all business men and motorists
of the country; said Mr. Day.
Mr. Day told of one road which
rises to an altitude of 14,000 feet
above sea level and then dropa to
4000 feet in the course " of 80
miles. Over this road, he aaid,
95 of the vehicles used are
Dodge t Brothers Motor Cars and
Graham Brothers Trucks, r
" One asks how the Peruviana
control travel over these narrow
tralla when traffic might wish to
go in -both directions at the same
time;- The v have devised a quaint
system of rules to prevent : colli
sions. Traffic originating In the
upper reaches of the Andes, say
Lima," Is permitted to move down
only on Tuesday, Thursday" and
Saturday o each week. Traffic
from the lower reachea la allowed
to move upward only on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday:" ? i
"The Peruvian government ia
alive to the need ot improved
roads," said Mr. Day,' "but' instead
of spending vast Bums ' ot money

? 'Aa : an- example 'of ,thls, road,

"at the head waters of the Ama
aon river, high In the . Andes
range, the government has begun
the cutting of tralla from, the old
town : of iQultoa, formerly famed
aa one of the big plan tauon ! rub

fects of Increased capital from the
United States. The North, Ameri
cana are exhibiting more energy
han the Europeans who formerly
occupied dominant financial con
trol of Pern .and : ' other .South
American countries. United States
products are supplanting British
made goods in a large measure."
Said Mr. Day. ; V . -.
; "United States capital controla
the largest vanadium mines- in the
world which are located high in
the Andes range ot Peru. This
valuable ore enters widely into the
manufacture of high - grade steel
of which Dodge Brothers, Inc., ia
a large consumer. The vanadium
Is mined 20,000 feet above sea' lev
elr. It is brought out of the shafts
la small bags which are placed on
the backs of llamas which" tread
slowly down the narrow mountain
tralla to a lake where the bags are
placed - on a barge ' and ; ferried
serosa to the opposite shore." The
bags then are loaded on. freight
cars of a fine standard gauge rail
road which carries It down to tide
water aat Callao, from, whence It Is
shipped aboard vessels northward
to United States ports.
"Peru has a wide variety of
climate. In the tropical sections
the finest long staple cotton in the
world ia 'produced. This cotton
la exported to the United-States
Lor the manufacture of fibre cord
automobile tires. .Other agricul
tural products include coffee and
sugar cane. Mining is the., prin
cipal industry of the country, gold,
allver and copper being produced
In large quantities."
Mr. Day who la an electrical en
gineer, was born, tftlXndon, Ehg-
land. "Seven yearsiago he went
out to Peru with hlSTPTrt and fam
ily to engage at hia prof easion.
Two yeara ago he aw-Ui increas
ing demand for motor vehicles in
that country and obtained a'fran
chise for handling Dodge Brothers
vehicles. Results to date Indicate
the wisdom of his selection; for

many ot the basic' principles of
Ford car construction have been
adopted by the Industry generally.
For 18 years, the engineering dlvl-
stantly striving to improve Ford
cars and the industry has -been
striving to better , the. features it
has taken from Ford cars. It is
slon of. the company haa been con- significant fact that while nam
erous refinements have been ef
fected In Ford cars. in that period,
neither .the company nor the in-
duatry has evolved any. Improve
ment upon these basic principles."

A worn and tattered Ford car
catalogue bearing the date of
1908, now in the archives of the
Ford Motor, company, is a mighty
impressive piece of literature. Not
only does it graphically Illustrate
the infant stage of the ' world's
greatest Industry, but also furn
ishes some interesting compari
sons with a number of features' ot
automotive engineering often quo
ted as-new developments.
Back in 1908r the question of
from which aide the car should be
controlled was regarded aa of lit?
tie Importance. Henry Ford, how
ever, ; recognized tne ract inat
when automobiles became as pop
ular aa ho intended to make them,
safety in traffic would be greatly
increased by the left hand drive;
So, with the advent of the Model
X, Mr. Ford plpneered the move-j
to popularize thla type of control.
Aa the number of automobiles fol
lowed his precedent until. within 4
few years virtually, every car made
in America waa left hand drive.
The torque tube drive, now one
of the outstanding construction
eatures of many of the finest
American and European automo
biles was invented by Henry Ford
and applied to the first Model T in
1808. - f, .
The principle of three point sus
pension, now practically universal
ly , recognized, made its first ap
pearance on a Ford car in 1903
and was included in the specifica
tions of the Model T.
The 'Multiple disc clutch is fre
quently quoted as a "new improve
ment," yet a multiple disc clutch
constantly bathed In oil was one
of the features of the 1908 'Model
In a recent statement, the com
pany reviews the 18 years ot man
ufacture since the adoption ot the
Model T chassis: "since 1908
