Dodge Brothers Dealer Tells
Importance of Auto In
dustry In Person
Straphangers in rash hours are
mere amateurs compared to the
packing and jolting that natives
or Persia, Irak and Syria experi
ence when they travel in motor
trucks across deserts and moan
tain trails, according to F. A. Ket
taneh, managing director of sales
or Dodge Brothers cars and Gra
ham Brothers trucks in those
Mr. Kettaneh recently visited
the plants or Dodge Brothers' in
Detroit to gain first hand informa
tion on the cars and trucks that
be has sold for seven years. It
was his first visit to America.
'Passengers in our motor lines
sever expect a cushioned seat,"
rxplalned Mr. Kettaneh. .''They
sit with their legs doubled under
thrm. and they usually ride on be
bt-d of the truck. They're piled in,
bag and baggage, and if they get
a strap to hold, it's a strap from
eonie of their luggage. In this
fashion, tbey are shaken and
bounced over their journey.
"Automobiles are forming the
only transportation linking many
parts of the country, bat they are
doing it as a reasonable price.
One bus line charges a $12 fare
for a COO mile trip, and the roads
are merely trails. In all my terri
tory, nearly a third the size of the
United States, we have only five
miles of paved roads."
Despite the discomfort to pas
sengers, owners of trucks do a
flourishing business, according to
Mr. Kettaneh. The automobile is
called the 'Friend of the People,'
and It is the ambition of every
driver to operate his own truck.
Drivers who receive a salary of
about $S0 a month all look for
ward to buylng'a truck, and jolt
ing passengers some day. Truck
driving Is one of the highest paid
occupations, the average workman
receiving a wage of 27 to 30 cents
American built cars form 80 per
cent of the registration in Mr.
Kettaneh's territory. There are
approximately 6.000 cars in Syria,
2.000 In Irak and 6.000 in Persia.
The registration figures In
these countries are considered all
the more remarkable because of
an import duty on passenger ve
hicles ranging from 15 to .25 per
cent,-' and gasoline prices vary
from 44 to 84 cents a gallon.
Gasoline for long trips is carried
in tanks' on the running board.
