19 ears or 43.6 per cent over
ths figures of 120.704 for the
first half of 1925.
? Although the final figures for
Canada' for th last week of the
second qaarter are not yet avail
able, according to the prelimin
ary report the gain In retail de
liveries by Dodge Brothers deal
ers In the Dominion is over 65
? Total shipments of motor cars
And truoks from - Dodge Brothers
ad Graham Brothers factories in
the United Ctates and Canada dur
ing the first six months of, 1926
were 207,U5,a gain of 68,345 or
49.8" per cent i-over- the record for
the same period last year; ;
"The official figures for total
production of ; passenger cars and
trucks- in. the United States and
Canada,' during the first six
aiontha of 1926 will probably not
be available before next -week,"
said the Bonesteele Motor com
pany. Dodge Brothers dealers
here, "but the industry's gain of
13 per cent over the correspond
ing period last year reported for
the first fire months of this year
by the United States Department
of Commerce will be little chang
ed. By' comparison Dodge Broth
ers gain is nearly four times as
great as that of the industry."

executives are not only offering

formances but also desire to
school the motorists in observing
a i few' simple rules which will
show them how to obtain the max
imum mileage from their tires by
Observing the following- points.1
Every CTC dealer w 11 furnish
motorists an 'inspection service of
their tires gratis which! will cover
the folowing vital j conditions
which affect tire mileage; a cheek
against sprung axles apd uneven
mounting of rims- which causes
wobbling of wheels, jjtoo much,
toe-in of front wheels, ajoose bush
ings, one brake grabbing ahead
of another and thus dragging one
tire In stopping. Theie are real
enemies of long tread jjwear. CTC
engineers suggest thati motorists
should give the samel (inspection
and care to their tires' as they do
to the punctual filling of the
crankcase with new oil.

The whole motor-car industry
decries the number of persons
killed in automobile" accidents.
Everyone in it looks askance at
that too often repeated excuse,
"the child rah out between two
other cars in front of me and I
could not stop," without a most
rigid investigation of why that car
could not be stopped.
When a traffic accident occurs
now we demand to see the driver's
license. We should ask to - se a
permit for-the car to be operated

' Lacking such a permit, periodic

of the traffic problem.
All speed cops, all the safety
drives and: all the safety talks
would be as nothing in the saving
of some ot the 24,000 lives a year
