, JULY 11. 1930 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COtlREER-NEWa PAGE THRE1* H.&OTOTU Rockefeller, at 91 Large Share ofi Huge Levy Will Be Used for Im• provement of Highways. CHICAGO, July 11 (UP)—Driving automobiles will cost Americnns more than 5930,000,000 In motor taxes alone this year, or a sum equil to one-eighteenth of the fo- (ai national debt of the United States, according lo n bulletin of the American Research Foundation, Just made public here. "Of this vast sum. the 48 slates mil receive approximately $350,000,COO 111 registration fees." Hie bulletin states. "Gasoline taxes will account, for about, $432,000,000; municipalities will collect $20.000,000 In licenses, and (h4 personal property lax on autcmoblle.s will approximate 1130.000,000." • Motorists in general will reap large benefits from the money they pay In taxes since an important share of It will be tpent, in improving highways and addtng to ihe nation's arterial systems, but, the bulletin warns, many automobile owners will pay taxes without getting returns for their money, di:e to their failure to maintain the motor efficiency of their cars. ."An automobile is more of a liability than an asset, unless it is maintained in perfect running order and lubrication is one of the inost' important factors," the bulletin states. "Three elementary rules stand out as fundamental knowledge for every American tourist. The first is that in the average car a heavier oil should be used after 2.000 miles of ordinary travel. The second, that a still heavier oil be used after 12,000 miles, and the third that new piston rings should generally be installed after 25,000 miles. When the worn piston rings are replaced by new ones which restore the original clearance, the motorist should again use the oil reccommended for his car when new, and then charge to heavier grades ai additional mileages." In ihe last ten years, it is stated, . automobile owners of ihe nation have paid out a total of $5.881,000,000 hi motof taxes.

Drnnelt, Findlay's' oil king, was alive, he used to say he would much rather help a man who was "rarin 1 to go" than help a man who had already fallen Into the gutter. His son, O. D. Donnell. one of the middle west's richest men, has Ihe same ide"a. As a result, some thousands of farmers In Hancock end adjacent counties are looking loiwara to the harvest season with confldence instead of despair. Several weeks ago the Buckeye Commercial Bank of Findlay crashed. •It was a major catastrophe for this region. Farm work almost stopped. New cattle could not be bought, farm machinery had to be let go, farm buildings could not be nxed. help could not be paid. Then O. D. Donnell started out through the countryside. He talk e'd to the farmers, got a clear un derstanding cf what the bank' failure meant to them. Then he went to the American-First Na tional Bank—Findlay's other bank —and called in A. E. Eoff and W. A. Hollington, officials. "We can't let these people be ruined," he told them. "I'm'not a banker, but I'm in on this." Go ahead and let's help them. Eoff and Hollington fixed up a plan by which their bank could take over part of the assets of the defunct Buckeye. Donnell, mean while, bought up American-First Nalicnal stock until he became Us leading stockholder. Then he placed $2,000,000 of his fortune at the bank's disposal. The result is that depositors in the wrecked bank will be able to get their money at once. If It,had not been for Donnell's aid it prob- ibly would have taken them 10 jears—If they ever did get it all. Because of this, the fanners are confident again. They can go ahead with their work. This will be i prosperous harvest season, not a cttastrophlc one. Darnell's father, J. C. Donnell, was «ne of the nation's oil pioneers and '.eft a fortune of }30,OOQ,000 on his death. He organized the Ohio Oil company, with headquarters in Findliy, which is said to be worth $200,000,000. He grew .up In the business with John D. Rockefeller, and was said to be the only man in the industry who called the oil kinj by his first name. His son, sow 47, Ls president 01 the Onio Oil Company.
