this county nnd this roglon In gonoral
Is woofully doflclont In roads, rond
signs, maps, and In ovorythlng olno
except natural attractiveness which
bring Joy and traveling satisfaction
to tho honrt of tho automoblllst, tho
auto doalors of this city have- takoii
tho roliiB In tholr haritln and nro do
tor'mlnod to rovorso tho ordor of
thlngB to tho extent that no county or
soctlon of tho stnto can point tho fln
gor of scorn at thorn and say with
truthfultnoss that thoy aro not Ml ve
to tho opportunities for securing
tholr sharo of tho automobllo travel
to which tholr sconlc beautlos, Indus
trial advantages, and other assets en
tltlo thorn. This dotormlnatlon bo
camo ploaslngly apparent at a moot
' Ing of automobllo mon hold In tho
chambor of commorco rooms Satur
day night, and tho enthusiasm was
not conflnod to tho doalors alono, but
to garago men In general and to
ovory sorvlco station man In tho city.
Tho mooting demonstrated conclus
ively that tho auto mon want to do
things In tho right way, and affilia
tion with tho chnmbor of commorco
was docldod upon as a sonslblo way
In which to strengthen their propos
ed campaign.
Tho Oood Roads association, an
old established organisation hero,
will bo morgod, or "dissolved" It tho
term Is mora appropriate, Into 'tho
Klamath Palls Automobllo associa
tion, nnd It Is tho object of tbo local
llvo wlros In tho auto gamo to elect
officers and a board of 11 directors,
and to adopt every method; neoded to
make the organization generally ef
fective. -It wasproposejTjto cljoso the
directors from among tho auto men
of this city and surrounding town,
and thus add vory deslrablo strength
to tho association, for It Is.apparont
to tho promoters of the association
that tho organization cannot attain
deslrablo potency unless all commun
ities in tho county aro represented.
Tho association would havo a mul
titude of duties to perform. Of first
Importanco would bo that of working
In harmony with tbo county court In
tho Improvement of tho roads of the
county. It would bo Its duty to loam
whoro monoy Is to bo ezpondod,
whoro It should bo expended, and to
mako rocommondatlons to tho county
court and Its county road builders
-which will demonstrate unselfish In
terest and at tho satr.o tlmo Impart
tho knowledgo that tho county court,
in Ub efforts to Improvo road oondt
tlons, is receiving tho support of tho
Road maps aro absolutely essen
tial. Any person who has traveled In'
unfamiliar places will tostlfy to tho
truth of this statomont. Road signs,
and ones that will toll tholr stories
'.plainly, day or night, must bo put
-up. It Is an undisputed fact that it Is
'iralmost Impossible for residents of tho
county to fool suro of their way un
loss they havo travelod tho route so
many times that it would bo hard to
loao the road. Thoso signs, according
to tho llvo onos who attended tho
meeting, should be ready for tho use
of the tourist by tho first of April.
Crater Lake, tho biggest sconlo at
traction in tho northwest, If not In
the wholo United States, Is deserving
of mora attontlon from automobllo
mon, nnd oven though tho Klamath
Palls Automobllo association would
bo a county organization, It was evi
dent to ovory person at tbo meeting
that It would be a mighty good stunt
to includo tho routo to tho lako In
tho road sign campaign, and this
wonder of natural wonders, almost
at Klamath county's door, will be
favored with everything necessary to
guide tho tourist to It.
There aro 1,800 automobiles In
this county, and therefore the pro
posed campaign to secure a member
ship of at least 1,000' should not be
a vory strenuous one. Simply a mat
tor of persistency and consistency,
say the automobile men. With a nom
inal momborshlp fee It would bo pos
sible to maintain an information bur
eau that would bo an invaluable aid
to all travelers, and that would place
the stamp of progress upon tho au
tomobile men, and other business
men of this county. Parking, traffic

As an artist, Leopold Oodowsky
Is tho mastor of thorn all says
Huneker. Ho Is a musical alchem
ist, who turns ovorytblng ho touch
es Into living gold, so that It be
comes Illumined like u boautlful con-
coalod Grecian lamp, when tho but
ton Is pressed.
Tho compositions ho analyzes,
soom like now ,yol ho doos nothing
to them but rovoal hidden beauties
ulruady In tho music. Ho treats
each pleco as a deop student of
scrlpturo might a boautlful Dlbla
passago, drawing out Its subtlo boau
tlos and truth. Ills Interpretation
stand out In the mind's eye like a
bas-relief, tho phraso lines being
as finely drawn as In a beautiful et
ching. In fact his art Is cloaoly akin
to etching, In that it takss a flaa
sonse or tho art to appreciate a
groat etching.
His ton''irlngor8',i'rb like ten leve
ly voices, each revealing tho hidden
boautlos of Its part independent of
tho others, tho wholo forming a
wonderful wob of marvelous poly
phony so transcendental at times,
that only tho Initiated can fully ap
preciate It all.
"I onco called him a "superman"
of piano playing," says Huneker.
"Nothing llko him as far as I know
Is to bo found In tHo history of
piano playing since Chopin. Ho is a
pianist for pianists, and I am glad
to say that tho majority gladly roc-
ognlzo this fact."
Mr. Oodowsky will appear In Kla

Ono thing more. Evoryono remem

John Martin, Louis Hoagland, and F.
D. Patty will straddlo their Job at

tributors with the fact that thti coun
ty uses an immense quantity of gas,
and that It Is the desire of the auto
men that a supply sufficient for their
needs be consigned hore early In the

tlmo'that tho sales ovon In the winter
time are not to be sneexod at.
