THE EVENING HERALD, KLAMATH FALLS, OREGON
"Did you over," said tho man
about town, "on a moonlight night,
sco a lot of llttlo skunks scooting
about among tho rocks nnit having
a hlghfalutlng tlrao nil by thorn
solves? Woll, If you liavo, you linvo
a picture of mr Impression of tho
youngstoni of this city, who dnrt out
from between cars any old place
during tho height of traffic, cross tho
street nt any tlmo nnd nt nny place,
scarcely looking beforo or behind
them, and gottlng away with It too
without getting a nick In their constitutions.
"And then wo havo our Jaywalkers,
grown men and women who look
"ns though they know better, cross
ing tho streets nt Intersections at tho
most dangerous angles. It I didn't
know that thero was somo myster
ious ngoncy continually gunrdlng
our fools, I'd Bay their escapes woro
miraculous. Hut sometimes this
mysterious guardian is absent with
out leave, and thoso aro the times
theso jaywalkers and kids get theirs.

And tho man about town wended
his way down Main street.
To tho person who frequents tho
mainly travelod streets hero It Is
evident that tho M. A. T. Is right.
Neither adults nor children seem
to havo the slightest regard for traf
fic regulations, apparently depending
upon tho drivers of automobiles to
cxerclso tho necessary caution to keep
them from getting kilted. Auto dri
vers aro only human, and even
though their cars aro provided with
alt tho latest safety appllancos, they
cannot control tho actions of a city
full of racing, scrambling, suicidal.
Indifferent people, and about tho
'only thing that can bring them to n
realization of their danger Is nn
ordlnanco that will give Chief Hank
Wilson authority to arrest every one
who needlessly takes his life in his
own hands, even If It takes a couplo

being unfolded to tho world, nnd
Klamath Kails nnd Klamath county
will seo thousands upon thousands
of tourists driving through this tils
trlct on tholr way to tho lake pro'
vlded tho county will construct for
them roads over which thoy can
travol In comfort.
Theso tourists will pay for tho
road In time. Thoy havo dona It In
California nnd wilt do It hero. Hut
this Is only n small part of what
theso travelers will do. Hy giving
thorn nn opportunity to drive through
this county, thoy wilt becomo Im
pressed with Its advantages as nn
agricultural region par excellence,
and tho good word, taken back with
thorn, or dropped hero nnd thorn
nlond tho roadsldo, will bo tho means,
of bringing honost-to-goodncss In
vestors Into tho county. And, Kin
math county needs them, too.
There Is n saltish motlvo bohlnd
this organization, but tho snmo sort
of motlvo was tho Incentive which
has prompted tho business, aided
tho development, and which has boon
tho motlvo for 09 per cent of tho
good things that havo como Into tho
world. Charity begins at home, It Is
said, and tho nuto owners of this
county know thoy aro helping them
selves ovory tlmo thoy say a good
word for tho association, or do any
thing that will holp to keep it allvo
and prosperous. After all, they need
good roads as woll as tho tourists
do, but tho big Idea Is to let tho
visitors pay for them, as they suroly
will do eventually.
Tho selection of It. C. Oroesbeck
as president of tho association was a
master stroke. Mr. Oroesbeck Is
public-spirited nnd full of business.
Ho represents tho auto ownors, of
whom thero aro at least 1800 In this
county a car for ovory six persons,
by tho way. Ho Is representative
of harmony and progress, and the
mombcrs of tho association aro to bo
commended In their selection.
A wlso provision, nlso, was tho
selection of vlco presidents from dif
ferent parts of tho county. Every
section In tho county should bo rep
resented. That Is tho only way to
obtain tho best results.
Above all, harmony must prevail
Petty prejudices must bo eliminated.
Tho few must bo governed by tho
majority. Sometimes strong person
al Views must bo sacrificed. Hut in
doing all this, concord can bo inado

The transportation problem1 presents two outstanding de
mands Efficiency and Economy. To both the Traffic Motor
Truck has furnished the answer. Its place in the business world
is' thoroughly established. In carrying capacity, speed and en
durance it has thoroughly demonstrated its superiority over
horse-driven vehicles. Because of the remarkable low cost and
high quality, the Traffic Motor Truck has no competitors in the
sphere of mechanical conveyances. It is noted for its power and
ease of handling.
The Traffic Motor Truck is built to answer the work re
quired of it most economically, and was designed with a com
plete understanding of what a commercial vehicle is called upon
to do. It will haul a 4000-lb. load wherever a modern commer
cial vehicle will go.
The Traffic meets all Motor Truck standards of construction
it is a dependable truck in every sense correct in every detail and
simple in construction. It is builtof standard units and built to a
standard size. It is sturdily built of durable materials to handle
its capacity load and to withstand the daily strain of load and road.
