appeared on the Oakland line, so
the All-American six boasts more
than fifty refinements, many of
them exclusive to the car in; Its
price field. ' S .
A quick mechanical picture of
the new Oakland shows a larger
nd fleeter power plant, a new pat
ented rubber engine support, new
uasiana-aeveiopea internal ex.
pandlng self-energizing four wheel
brakes, larger cross-flow radiator,
-counterbalanced crankshaft, larjj-
r three-port Intake manifolds,
and unique lubrication of cylinder
Interpreted in terms of perform
ance, the new refinements, mean
quick vfbrationless acceleration of
from ten to 25 miles an hour in
six seconds flat, and a top speed
of well over 70 miles an hour,
according to tests under the stop
watch at the General Motors Prov
ing: ground, where the new car
was made ready for the public
Built on a 117-inch wbeelbase,
the new power plant develops 68
horsepower at 3,000 revolutions
per minute. Cylinder displacement
today is 228 cubic inches, increas
ed from 212 cubic inches last year
by enlarging the bore io 3 . 3-8
Inches from Z Inches. Stroke, re
mains at 4 1-4 inches.
The engine; Is the L-head type,
with a high compression G-M-R
head pioneered by Oakland, which
may he removed without interfer
ence with the ignition, and with
provision for a built-in thermo
stat. A feature of the head Is a
semi-circular baffle located di
rectly above the piston which is
claimed to give maximum freedom
from detonation. Compression ra
tio is 4.9 to 1.
The power plant is mounted on
four supports and Insulated from
the frame by rubber "biscuits,"
developed by Oakland engineers
and exclusive to the latest All
w!!i?iJ! The design of the "bis
cuit," is unique because it Is Im
possible for a mechanic to change
the compression of the rubber, no
matter how hard he drawns down
on the fastening nut.
By decreasing the size of the
hexagons In the new copper core
of the cross-flow radiator, increas
ed cooling is provided, while ther
mostatic control has been an Oak
land feature for the past few
years. The ' Oakland pioneered
cross-flow principle of radiation
has especial value in winter driv
ing because it reduces evaporation
and allows for efficient operation
with the water level at only two
thirds the height of the radiator
tore, thus lowering the possibility.)

States in Uniform Code 1 t
PlaMe for National Use
25 Principles Worked Gut For Use by Council
On Nation Street and Highway Safety;
Suggestions Worked Out Carefully
Albert S. Fall will go on "trial
In Washington again, the govern
ment apparently having dug Up
something that he has not been
acquitted of. Crane American. -
From the beginning, of Us work
it has been the concensus of the
national conference, on street and
highway safety that to the sever
al states should be reserved the
broad general control - of motor
vehlele operation. Accordingly, at
tention was first concentrated up
on formulating a uniform vehicle
code having this end in view. It
was equally apparent that muni
cipalities are confronted with rpo
cial problems that ;.o state law
could or should aspire to cover,
and so the conference next under
took formulation of a model
municipal traffic ordinance. This
is so drawn that it can be util
ized as a sound framework by any
city or town in building legal reg
ulations governing the use of mo
tor vehicles in such centers and
supplying a remedy for the traf
fic evils with which it may be
harassed. Several hundred cities
have already adopted this course
and with gratifying results.
The conference started with the
premise that the model ordinance
should b9 In complete harmony
with the state code. Study of the
problem next indicated that there
was not, after all, such a wide
fundamental divergence In muni
cipalities bat that many standard
provisions could well be applied
ot those of all sizes. A tentative
draft of the model ordinance was
distributed to public officials,
particularly police, citizens organ
izations and' other Interested
groups throughout the 'country
with invitations for criticism.
Some suggested changes found in
the responses were incorporated
In the final draft, which contains
twenty-five essential features, as
1. Recommends the creation of
an official traffic body in each
city to co-ordinate all municipal
agencies in matters of traffic reg
ulation, control and enforcement.
2. Recommends the establish
ment of a division at traffic en
gineering and the employment of
a city traffic enginser in citie3
where there is a serious traffic
problem. -
Uniform Signals Wanted
3. Recommends the adoption of
uniform official traffic signs, sig
nals and pavement markings.
- 4. Recommends the installation
of traffic control signals on
streets where traffic is heavy in
order to speed up the movement
of vehicles and safeguard redes
trians. -5.
Provides that where traffic
signals are used the movement of
traffic shall be directed by the
words "Stop." "Go", and "Can
tlon" or "Wait" or by the use of
colored lights.
f. Where colored lights ara
used, red ! shall indicate "Stop"W
green shall Indicate "Go" and
yellow ab.aH indicate "Caution"
or "Wait."
7. Provides That pedestrians
shall be given the right-of-way
over vehicles at all crossings, ex
cept where traffic is regulated by
an oficer or signals.
8. Provides that pedestrians
ahall yield right-of-way to vehicles
at all places other than crossings,
but drivers of vehicles must al
wag? exercise due care for safety
of pedestrians.
Pedestrians Rights (liven Out
.9. Provides ' that where traffic
is controlled, pedestrians must
yield right-of-way to vehicles pro
ceeding under a "Go." signal,
while vehicles must yield to pe
destrians who are crossing or have
started to cross under a "Go"
10. Provides rules regarding
driving past street cars and pro
vides that vehicles msst not re
main on street car tracks after
the street caV has signalled.
. It. Provides that railway
trains and street cars shall not
block the streets.
12. Provides that vehicles shall
not stop In certain specified places
on streets.
13.. Provides for the establish
ment of loading zones for passen
ger and freight vehicles, also for
bus stops and taxicab stands.,
lt Prohibits busses and iaxl
cabs from parking in places other
that designated stands or zones,
except tbat'they may be permitted
to stop at other places to take on
or let off passengers.
' Parking Limited
15. Provides that parking shall
be entirely prohibited in certain
places and that parking time shall
be limited in certain designated
16. Provides, that co vehicle be
permitted to park In such a man
ner that less than ten feet of the
width of the roadway is left avail
able for the free movement of
17. Prohibits all-night parking.
18. Prohibits the use of a ve
hicle on the streets for the pri
mary purpose of displaying adver
tising. 19. Provides that all vehicles
shall keep on the right side of
the street, and that slow moving
vehicles keep as closely as possi
bly to the right curb, except where
conditions make it impracticable.
siflProvides that right turns
8jhallbe"made from the right hand
curb and that left turns shall be
made from the traffic lane nearest-
the center of the street. In
making left turn vehicle shall pass
to the right of the center' of the
Intersection, unless otherwise di
rected. v
. 21. Provides that all left turns
shafr be made on the "Go" signal,
unless otherwise directed 2y a'
police officer.
. 22. Provides that running
around shall be prohibited unless
movement can be made In safety
and without backing or interfer
ence with other traffic.
23. Provides that vehicles
emerging from alleys or private
driveways shall atop before pro
ceeding across sidewalk.
24. Provides that all .vehicles
left unattended on. -street shall
have brakes set and engine stop
ped, and that parked vehicles
shall be equipped with proper
lights at night.
As in the case of the uniform
code the framers of the model or
dinance recognized that there
should be in the ordinance suffi
cient elasticity to render It
remedial of specific local traffic
conditions. Accordingly, the or
dinance has been so drawn that it
can be made applicable to any
municipal situation without sac
rifice of its sound fundamental

In Salem, as in all the West "more
people ride i on Goodyear Tires than
on any other kind."
Likewise Salem checks with the. world
on Goodyear quality and has for
many years.
Winter after winter, .the Goodyear
fleet of test cars has covered hun
dreds of thousands of miles on your
roads. " ""
We have repeatedly made sure that
Goodyear Tires stood up far better
than any other kind under Western
driving conditions.
You have in increasing numbers
each year, discovered that Goodyear
Tires perform far better. That they
actually give you very much more
serrive for your money,
We ask for a continuation of your
valued patronage on so other grounds
Because we produce - mllions more
tires than any 'other company, by -reason
of lower costs we are able to
give you the. best tires for the least
money. '
We have heen happy to find that a
very strong bond exists between
Salem and Goodyear.
We do not credit this to any senti
mental regard toward ourselves or
our products. The-buying of tires is ,
purely a business matter. . Salem has
learned from experience that Good
years offer much more for the money
than is possible to obtain in any other
make. ' ' "
Salem, very shrewdly therefore, on
a strictly business basis, continues to
buy more and ' more

The new features and equipment of the Nash
"400" have added hundreds of dollars of
actual, visiblewordi to this famous motorcar.
They hare added an incalculable measure
of enjoyment to Nash ownership.
Yet they have added nothing to Natb price.
At no extra cost, you have the Twin Ignin

less gasoline). . '
You have costly car interior finishes, Bijur

dollar added to the price.
Equipment which other dealers (not Nash
dealers) charge extra for, at retail prices, is
included in every Nash "400" model, as it
comes from the factory, at no extra cost.
That is why you will find that "400," fully
equipped, delivered prices are so much less
than other cars with similar or even lower
