The Massachusetts Highway Commis
sion has issued statistics that answer
tho question of whether or not women
figure in more accidents than men.
Because a bill was put in the legisla
ture to prevent women from driving
cars of more than 30 horse power, the
Highway Commission was requested to
furnish some facts and figures These
show that women drivers are not dan
gerous, on the highway. The commis
sion reported that out of 217 fatal ac
cidents hist year in which motor ve
hicles were involved, women figured in
seven, or U 1-3 per cent.
Out of a total of iMl.109 private op

Steering is faulty on the average car
because it requires too much effort.
There i too much power lost in fric
tion, and it is also inefficient because
of absence of true casfcr action. The
mathematics of castor steering are not
complicated, but they admit of plenty
of room for discussion While the front
wheel with a central pivot, raked a
little fore and p ft, is the ideal, there
are other ways of obtaining a similar
effect; and it only needs to drive a
car with perfect steeling to appreciate
what an enormous amount of additional
pleasure it gives.

Vick Bros. Are Busy
Setting Up New Cars
Itusy time at Vick llros., is it keeps
a large force of men busy nowadays un
loading and setting up new ford cars
and teaching new owners to drive.

As the result of its power to attract
the highest-prices talent in all lines of
endeavor, the automobile industry his
developed many branches of produc
tion sience to a far greater degree than
had ever been deemed possilde.
Metallurgy a science practiced by
every village blacksmith for centuries
has been especially advanced. Many
of the hardening and other heat treat
ments of steel have been brought to a
state of versatility and exactness new
to all former exponents of the science.
Automobile metallurgists have been
able to turn out steel so tough tint it
could be tied into knots. They have
made it so hard that it can be used to
cut glass. They have combined a tough
core with a iiard surface. Now one of
them comes forward with a series of
operations which mike possible a piece
of steel tough within and on both sides,
but hard on a scries of points definitely
copper Plate the Key.
The presence in the Maxwell plants
of a eoiiper plating device is thekep
to this situation. The piece on which
th operation is performed is the large
ring gear which transmits power from
the m.iin shaft to the rear wheels.
The rinir gear comes to the copper
plating bath, forged and machined. Be
fore the bar ii, a workman covers th5
face of the teeth with a coating of wax.
The copper is therct'oro deposited over
the whole gear except tho teeth.
The gear is next taken to i harden
ing heat treatment. The wax melts im
mediately and the hardening treatment
takes effect on the gear teeth only, the
conncr plat preventing the process from
attacking the remainder.
By this treatment the Maxwell met
allurgists produce a gear which while
hard and enduring on its face, is com
prised chiefly of tough, resisting steel.
Kven the gear teeth are hard on the
surface only, the coating of hard steel
being in the nature of ooly a thick
skin, backed up by material which is
tough and resisting.
Theory Mofees Good.
The Maxwell process has already
been tested successfully in thousands of
cars and the theory has been confirm
ed by practice. Stripped ring gears are
virtually unknown, as the hard teeth
no longer imply brittle backing, as in
the gears treated by methods which
harden the entire part.
The fact that a ring gear of this
kind was recently run more than 22,000
miles without repair, and under A. A.

DON'T accept claims or opinions.
Every man selling an automobile
will tell you his car can be run
at low cost.
He'll tell you this because he knows
and you know that gasoline, oil and tires
are costing more and more all the time.
He knows and you should know that the
operating cost of any automobile during
five years' t'me is worth your careful con
sideration. We don't give you any guesswork. We
tell you what we know. We state the
facts and figures proved and verified
figures. Here they are:

Average miles per day (44 dayn). 500.6
Miles per gallon of gasoline ' 21.88
