JULY 25, 1039 , '(ASK.)' CQUItlER NEWS Macs Map McNutt's Future AAA Sees Five Billion Spent By Vacation Travelers * WASHINGTON, July 25 (UP)Motor vacationing this year is moving toward a new record high and expenditures by automobile tourists probably will resell an unprecedented $5,000,000,000 total, according to the American Automobile Association. Gasoline snlcs already are 11 per cent higher than for the same period last year anil the number of persons visiting national parks surpass the 1938 figure, the AAA sold. A large percentage of the Increased traffic, the AAA believes can be attributed to interest In the' New York and San Francisco World's Fairs. The association said a poll of AAA members throughout, the country revealed that about 15 per cent, were planning to visit one of the fairs and that 8 per cent, were-planning to see both. Vacations Start Later The AAA predicted an increase In motoring vacations earlier this year but the gain failed to materialize until recently. AAA touring counsellors explained that many motorists delayed llieir vacations until closing of schools so thai the entire family conic] make the trip. With schools closed, the AAA said, routings handled by motor clubs have "swelled to record- breaking proportions" and long distance trips arc "far ahead of anything seen before in motor club history." As a' resvilt, the AAA has Increased its start by 40 pel- cent and is working at maximum capacity both day and night. More Foreign Autos Seen A feature of this year's motor travel, the association said, is the Increased number of foreign cars on 'American highways. The AAA attributed the gain to success of the recent convention of the international association of recognized automobile clubs which met In the United Slates for the first time. • • ', '"The visiting motor club officials were taken on a tour of interesting points along U. S. and Canadian highways," the AAA said. "They stated unanimously . that they would encourage their members "to bring their cars here for vacation motoring. . "Thus, motor clubs .throughout the world are spreading the advantages of the 0; S. ns a travel objective." :, •.'.: FACE THREE AND CEMCDEL ED 81FHI Questions and Answers , Q- How Ireiiuently need Require Evidence 0{ Dependability and Durability Before Approval Methods of construction which ^ B ->u up™ cinnniic enmimmr- aie not customary or not m gen-1 When it i s ncMKsury (o pulnt phis' eiaily accepted nracllce romtlro nn.' ler minn /•ni»n^iL.,.. ~r ..

Wione 633 • Always Open AFTON, Wyo. (UP)—The milkmaid is replacing the cowboy on the broad plains of Wyoming. The great herds of beef eatlle still are there—behind fences now —hut dairy cattle arc growing in number and Wyoming now ranks fifth in the nation in the production of Swiss cheese, with an annual output of 1,250,000 pounds. The hard-bil.len cattle barons of 50 years ago frowned on milk cattle, and raised few other than lor their own supplies of products. With the present decline in beef markels and the increased trend in the stale toward agriculture, dairy cattle become more numerous each year. Cheese experts say that the Wyoming product compares favorably with Ihal of foreign manufacturers. The Slar valley, in west-central Wyoming, is Ihe heart of the dairy producing industry. In- 1927- a cooperative firm was formed with 27 members lo bijild a cheese factory for, production of milk products. Experts > tried to discourage tlib 'idea, but^it 1 proved ^a-'succcss from the beginning. Today the vnlle)' supports five cooperative production centers and six factories with its annual output of 800,000,000 ,pounds of mil);.
