Motor Car Manufacturers
Make Safety First Practical
"How rapidly the reckless motorists
is dropping from the ranks nail ihe
saae driver is taking his place," said
Lloyd I'yan who has the distribution
of Saxon motor cars in this district.
"A. nl lilt- po,.,i',ar thing about it is
that legislation has played o'y a
small part in the matter."
".Motor manufacturers are looking
to the .safety-first, idea themselves,"
continued Mr. llyau, "for they realize
that it is good business as well as
ordinary humanity. 1 am a discip;.: of
the school of sane driving and yet 1
may say that I am not a slow diiver.
"A small pace does not insure care
ful driving and that is one reason Wie
the legislation of a speed limit regula
tion cannot itself lower the perccn.eg'
of recklessness. Observance t f the
courtesies of the road and of the cau
tion is due making for a careful driver.
"The motorist can drive rapidly if
he knows when to slow up and it he
can slow op rapidly when lie wants to.
The latter ability lies within the car
alone. Only the motor car which can
be throttled with .speed and which
picks up rapidly when accelerated is
capable o'f rapid yet cautious driv
ing. "fa congested traffic, I can always

and 1 tan move slowly nut bv starts
and jerks because my car will throt

smoothly on high gear.
"Frequently in making''trips thru
heavy traffic I never shift mv irear
all but simply guide the speed by the
accerelator. This gives me both hands
for steering and makes possible careful
turns. Host of all, 1 am never uncer

motoring. It's just like having a trust

Pay As You Use
Plan of Buying Popular
The deferred payment plan recently
"imou 'd bv.the (niaranly Securities
Corporation of New York is said to be
one of the greatest steps ever taken to
ward facilitating the purchase of auto
mobiles. I'ntlcr the terms of this new
selling arrangement, purchasers of
motor cars can 'buy any one of 10 dif
ferent makes of cars on a monthly pay
The "guaranty plan" as it is called,
can be applied in the purchase of al
most any car made iu.lhe I'nitcd States.

land. Payment Plan
With this array of cars
from, the prospective buver
car, make Ins tirst payment when
is delivered and then make up the
balance in eipial monthly payments.
There is no nddiiinnnl expense attached
to the transaction other than a small
charge for insurance and incidentals
and a normal rate of i! per cent interest
on the deferred payments.
According to officials of the fluar
aaty Securities Corporation, nutoinonio
bile dealers throughout the country are
enthusiastic over this (luaranty plan,
b'eports already have been received by
them from numerous sources, stating
that sales have been consummate, that
' for months were liauuiliL' fire.
The fact that the automobile has
! pa-sctl bevond the luxury stage and is
; now looked niioa as an everv dav
j necessil v, has influenced
to take advantage of this
isv uavnu'iit plan, who, under ordi
nary conditions, probably would not
buy for another vear or two.
it is estimated that there are tens
.f thon-ands of neoule who want aa.l
thev do not care to invest a lump sum
of money in a car. On the other hjnd
there is a vast number of people who
really need a cur for their I'aaiilv or
business um' but they figure that they
cannot afford to cut down their sav
ings account bv drawing out a big sum
of nionev nil at once.
Coaxes the Tardy.
I'nder the Cuaiaatv plan practically
all of these obstacles are eliminated.
The casv terms of payment make it pos
sible for a man or woman to own and
enjov a c.ir today, whereas if thev ha. I
to put off buying until the full pur
chase price were saved, th suinmr ami
po.-ildv the fall would slip by before
thv had accumulated the full amount.
Another point in favor of the tluar
antv plan is the fact that every one of
lhc 1! cars that can be bought under
the terms of this agreement, bear trade
marks that are the most popular im the
market and are backed up r the great
est organizations in the industry.

said about, the duty of the District
Attorney to see that, the court dockets
are not crowded with c.ises wherem
convictions cannot be had. I'rior to
10OS it. was the duty of the District
Attorney to determine what cases

should not be prosecuted. In 10IIS. the
people of the state of Oregon passed
a law taking that power from the Dis
trict Attorney an. I relieving him from
this responsibility. Hy this law the
llr.inil .lury, and the Grand Jury alone
is responsible for the criminal cases
which should be on tiie court docket. 1
believe that tile people acted wisely,
