" WASHINGTON. D. C. Septem
ber 11. Highway courtsey and
cooperation are, two ideals that
constantly are laid before molor
doiiK One of the chief difficul
ties standing in the way or thelT
Attainment by motorists generally-
is th failure of their advocates
in too many instances, to define
precisely what is meant -by the
terms, says a statement issued to
day by national headquarters of
the American Automobile assoc
ciation. "
"As one of the most enthusias
tic and , persistent advocates of
these ideals, the American Auto
mobile association has submitted
a questionnaire to its club execu
tives in 928 different communi
ties in an effort to get an accurate
and up-to-the-minute definition
of courtsey and cooperation be
tween motorists," says the state
ment. , .... ' .
-.From the large number of ans
wers received, officials of the na
tional motoring agency hare es
sayed to translate the terms in
such a way that they "may be ap
plied to street and highway con
ditions as they are met by the
average driver. On some poins.
me local ciud execuiiT: ouuwcu
plies.- On others, a divergence of
epinioa "'existed but, in the main.
It was' slight'.
Cooperation and 'eourtsey ap
parently begin with the giving of
signals, says. the statement.
. "Virtually all of the replies to
thtrquestioriaaire emphasized this
point and, undoubtedly , a largo
ma Jority:. of motorists 'will agree'
wltb its . primary importance.
' "For 'with millions using the
that one, driver cannot, with safe
ty, leave another in doubt as to
his 'Intentions., The; carelessly
given signal is alnlost. as bad as
no signal at all. J
"Yet," many thousands of mo
torists do not realize that they are
being discourteous," to say the
least, when, they, tail to give tne
lignal that is clear,
pi "It Is not sufficient to extend
one's arm furtively outside the
jar to indicate a turn, or to let
the arm hang limply along ;the
Joor to register one's intention to
stop. . The signal should be given
precisely and for a sufficient
length of time for the person be
hind or coming toward one to see
The giving of signals does not
stop with those involving the ex
anAaA arm. thA statement noints
out. Parking" lights are very 1m
nnriant slarnala that freouentlv
are overlooked, the A. A. A. finds.
"To leave a car without a light to
inform other motorists of its pres
ence is to Invite them to what may
be physical disaster. From this,
it may be seen that there is ranch
more to usfhg the parking, light
tban merely . escaping a visit to
traffic court."
In actual operation of the car
on the street or highway, there
are many ; ways to cooperate.
These are known to virtually ev
ery driver, but many fall to make
use of their knowledge in cooper
ating with other motorists, the
statement says.'--They are listed
as follows;
"Use caution at all times,
whether traveling at, a speed of
five or fifty miles an hour.
"Observe strictly' the right-of-way
regulation. . .
"Always drive over to the right
curb or .right side of the road.
"Never try to pass another car
until the way is absolutely clear.
"Use the horn with discretion.
"When surrendering the right-of-way
to a car from the rirht.
stay back of the street line in or
der to let machines from the left
pass.. -. ;
"Park with an eye to conserv
ing space to the utmost.
"Remember that pedestrians
should be accorded courteous
treatment." -
. vnuiu oe aaciea to
this list, but If motorists general
ly would practice "those here en
umerated, constructlre strides to
ward real hfffhwav courtesv and
cooperation would have been tak
en, the statement concludes.

Eaiy. "fast" steering, long a

low pressure tires on the road.J

Ihrough a lung vc in order to
'urn the front-wheels'. . .
The Nash front wheels may be
cramped by little more -than a
ringle turn of the steering waeel.
This has been accomplished at
no sacrifice to easy steering, since
it., re on ires no ; more effort than
was ieeled when old-style high
pressure 4 tires were used.
Parking v is said to be much
easier with -the. Nash type, of steer
ing,, Women drivers who have
piloted the new Nash models are
outspoken in their appreciation of
the easy steering, and they like
also those details of convenience
such as the light controls in the
center of the handsome steering
wheel, the ease and surety with
which the brakes may, be applied,
the almost effortless .operation of
the clutch, the convenient loca
tion of the long parking brake
lever, and the grouping of the
instruments, all under glass.
These details of refinement and
improvement are. in keeping with
the usual quality found through
out Nash construction, and serve
to. enhance the enjoyment of the
7-bearing crankshaft motor with
which each model is equipped. .
