AVTO OF THE FUTURE
What is to lie the future line of
development of the motor car? It
is a big, .practical question, of inter
est to every designer and manufac-
turer, and to every present or pros
pective user of an automobile.
William B. Stout, woo has won ,
distinction as an aircraft engineer,
gives some illuminating suggestions
based on aircraft lessons learned dur
ing the war. The motor car of the
'uture, he says, should have thes
It should be a closed car, carrying
five paaengers, and weighing only
about 900 pounds, with a small en
gine of si x or more cylinders, giv
ing SO to 40 miles on a gallon of
gasoline, riding more easily than
the present heavy-weight cars, and
costing no more than any present
ear of equal pasenger capacity and
These are not at al impossible
The veto of the daylight saving
bill has railed public attention once
more to a subject that has nothing
to do with the merits or demerits of
the plan in question. It is the sub
ject of legislative "riders."
The daylight-repeal provision was
made an appendage to the agricul
tural appropriation bill. When the
president, therefore, decided to veto
the appendage, the only way he
could do it was to veto the entire
bill. A9 a result, many agricultural
department activities were tempor
arily in distress for -lack of funds.
Whether the president, was right
or wrong in this veto Is another
question. The obvious fai t is that
if this important daylight provision
had been Incorporated -in a separate
bill, standing by Itself as It should,
it could have been considered on Its
own merits, and the appropriation
bill would have gone through un
complicated, and unscathed.

and state legislatures to quit the

ideas, he maintains. The engine may
be lightened by being cooled by air, rty PracUce of tacking riders onto

In many parts of the car by a more
general substitution of wood for
steel. Airplane construction, he
holds, has proved the superiority of
wood for maliy purposes, because of
its combined strength and elasticity.
Such a car. he says, will not only
be fairly cheap in first cost and won
derfully economical to run. but it
can he taken care of by the owner
with little effort and little skill. The
oiling will be almost wholy automa
tic, and there wil Ibe no grease cups
or unluhricated joints. The outside
design will be such that it can be
kept clean by a minimum of -washing.
It all sounds too good to 'be true.
A million automobile users will sigh,
"Bring us such a car." Maybe the
experts will really produce It before
important bills? All bills should
