Bradfo'rds instead of the Kirkpatricks,
as originally announced.
Along at the start of the season a
vhange in the schedule was made, after
tne oifiuiul schedule had been made out.
SSalem knew nothing of Hub and figured
on meeting the Kirkpntricks tomorrow.
A few days ago President Bay of the

management that the Bradfords would
Keone and Swartz will undoubtedly
be the opposing slabmen in tomorrow '
session. Swartz essayed to pitch a
double header here a couple of weeks
ago but didn't do very much in that
line. He tost the first game and the
second went into extra innings and re
sulted in a victory for the Lojus.
Swartz U in fine form for tomor

and batting order has been readjusted
to provide a stroiigor ofefnsive.
Ray Gobel plays his last game is Sa
lem tomorrow. The summer course at
O. A. C. in which he is entored comes to
a close and Gobel plans to leave within
a few dnys for California.
Rumors are nfloat that the league sea

said to have lost money and patronage
is none too heavy. If the team wins
tomorrow, though, "It" is thought that a

Sixteen Million Dollars
Spent on Roads byAutoists
Washington, I). C. July 1. Ninety
per cent of the registration and license
fees paid in 1915 by automobilists to
the stntes, or $10,213,387, was spent for
the building and maintenance of county
and state road, according to a concili
ation just published by the office of
Public Roads, U. 8. Department of Ag
riculture. In all, 2,445,1304 niotor ve
hicles were registered in that year and
their owners paid 'a total of $18,245,
713 for registrations and drivers' and
dealers' licenses. This is an increase
of $5,80.1, 700 over 1914, and an increase
of 734,325 in the number of vehicles
. Automobilo fees now defray nearly 7
per cent of the total amount spent on
rural roads and bridge building, wehere
as in 1900 the income from this Bourco
was less than three-tenths of 1 per cent
of the total expenditure.
The growth of the volume of fees and
registrations is noted by the fact that
in 1901 New York, the first state to
requiro fees collected only $954. In
1900 only 4S,000 cars were registered
throughout the entire United States.
Bv 1915, however, the number had jum
ped to the figure given, so that there is
slightly more than one motor ear regis
tered for each f the 2,375,000 mill's of
road outside of the incorporated towns
The relation between cars aiiif road
mileage varies widely in different sec
tions. There is only one motor car for
every 0 miles of rural road in Nevada,
but nearly six niotor cars for every mile
of such rondjn New Jersey. There is
an average of one motor car registra
tion for every 44 persona in the United
States. Iowa apparently leads, howev
er, with one motor car for every 10 per
sons, while only one for every 200 per
sons is registered in Alabama.
It. must be understood, however, that
the figures of registration do not nec
essarily represent a total number of
.cars, as some of the states do hot re
quire annunl registration-," others group
pleasure and commercial cars and mo
torcycles in their accounts, while still registered came fourth in point of reve

of motorcycles. .
There is great inequality in the regis
tration fees charged by the different
states. The average for the United
States, v.as $7.4(1. The state of Ver
mont, however, secured in 1915 a gross
revenue of $18.10 for each motor car,
while Minnesota received only about
50 cents for each motor car. In Texas
and South Carolina no annual registra
tion fee is collected, the only require
ment being a coun.y fee of 50 cents
and $1.00 respectively for perennial re
gistration. Most of the states, however,
also levy annual taxes on motor vehic
les and this adds importantly to the j
punuc revenue contributed uy tne own
ers of motor-propelled vehicles.
In the nse of fees, however, there
seems to be a general policy of applying
the mnjor part of the money collected
from automobilists directly to road bet
terment. In 42 of the stntes of the Un
ion all or the major portion of the
motor vehiclo revenue must be expended
for the construction, improvement, or
maintenance of the public, roads, or for
the maintenance of the State Highway
department. In. 20 states, all or the!
major portion of the net motor-vehicle I
revenues are expended by or under the
supervision or direction of the State
Highway department. Iu seven states!
