. It has been generally accepted that
..deprivation ot alcohol would result
in an increased use of habit-forming
drugs. This has been one of the
leading arguments of the liquor In
terests. Friends ot the prohibition
movement, while not admitting it
u a, valid objection to prohibition,
lave granted that such a danger ex
feted, and have sought to meet It by
tetter control of the "dope" traffic.
Perhaps this fear has been exag
gerated. The editor ot the Arliona
Gazette, speaking from the exper
ience ot a state that has already met
this situation, maintains that the
transition from strong drink has
been made without any appreciable
Increase ot the drug evil.
"There Is no doubt In my mind,"
cays the editor. In a personal state
ment, "but that Arlxona when wet
was the wettest region In the United
States In proportion to Its popula
tion. I know now from actual inves
tigation that there was practically no
tendency toward the nse of drugs as
a substitute for alcoholic drinks. We

The people in Arizona who were con

fcecause no such drinks were procur

This information will be reassur
ing to many communities and many
Individuals that have been worried
about the matter. There should be

A test was made In Ohio recently
to determine the saving in gasoline
irom running a. i -good
road. The greatest pains were
' taken to eliminate from the test
every variant except the surface of
the Toad, Five new Army Standard
A trucks were used for the trial
They were sent over seven different
types of road surface on practically
level ground. ' ' '
The test results showed an aver
age of 5.78 miles per gallon over a
dirt road in good condition, 7.19
' over fair gravel, 9.89 over good
gravel, about the same over fair bi
tuminous macadam and good brick
roads, 11.44 over extra smooth brick
and 11.78 over good concrete.
Here is a gain ot six miles per
gallon between the best and worst
type of road with unloaded trucks.
The trucks loaded showed that the
poor road took seven times as much
gasoline per mile as the good one.

tation, these figures speak louder
than words on the sound economy of
sound roads. Furthermore, Into
these figures enters no calculation
of the wear and tear upon an expen
sive machine in going over rough
highways, nor the time lost. They
are only to show that the saving of
gasoline alone must be figured as
going a long way toward paying for

It took the Mechanics five Innings
to get their old machine tinkered In
shape to run, but In the sixth they
had a Joy ride to victory. When they
did step on her she came from be
hind the Professionals and went too
far In front there was no heading

Instead of the usual five Innings,
It was agreed by the two captains to
play seven. The first four Innings
were snappy enough, with the Me
chanics ahead, 2-1. The first half

caught off the base on an over run
but scored when he eluded Collins
and Faubion who tried to trap him.
Pittinger and Johnson both hit safe
ly, but Pittinger was caught at the
plate trying to come home on John
son's hit. In the sixth inning, with
one down, Patterson hit safely, and
was forced home when Faubion is
sued free transportation to three
men. iBlevins was sent to Faublon's
relief, and stopped further scoring.
For five Innings the Professionals
had held their opponents to two hits
and two runs. The two runs had
been handed to Fred Collins through
errors, followed by hits. In the
sixth after one was out, Kearns hit
to center for two bases. He stepped
20 feet off the bases and went to
sleep, temporarily. But no harm
came to him for the second baseman,
Johnson, also slumbered, and the
ball was tossed to center field again
on the play to catch Kearns, who,
being rudely awakened Ibeat It for
home, where he arrived safely. Then
followed the Joy ride. Collins sin
