Does a red "blinker" mean stop? A. ;The blinker is to motorists an a lighthouse is to sailors. • It marks a danger spot, such as an intersecting highway, or railroad grade cross-j ing.

Is not this practice unlawful? A. Those guilty of this practice are lacking In courtesy. • They jeopardize the safety of others.

Why not equip I more assurance in the pure October your car with a side mirror? Q. Why not paint white center line weather, which we distinguish by the name of the Indian summer. The day, immeasurably long, sleeps on the markings the full length of the high- broad hills aud warm wide fields. ways instead of only at curves and hills? This -would tend to keep the road hog in his proper lane. A. Disregarding the question of cost, it is believed that the use of white center line marking should be confined to those locations where traffic should not cross it under any circumstances. To make the white line effective, its use should be restricted to dangerous locations only, such as ore found on sharp curves and hills. In mountainous sections subject to frequent and dense fogs, it is advisable to have a continuous white line. Q. Is there any case where "O" tags are issued even though the applicant does not hold a Certificate <jf Public Convenience? A. Yes, if the individual or com• pany was operating prior to January, 1914. Q. Has a dealer or manufacturer the right to remove a number from an engine' and transfer the same number to another engine? A. Yes, if special license, as provided for by Section 304 of the code, has been obtained. Q.

But, on the subject of the Indian summer, the former, a student of Indian lore, Is the more trustworthy authority, dealing with the idea of the Indian summer as originally conceived. Emerson no doubt expressed, and only incidentally, the later and concurrent notion. The dictionary halts between the opinions of these two masters, or, rather, attempts to straddle them. In 1824, when Longfellow was stripling of 17, Doddridge wrote: "The smoky time commenced and lasted for a considerable number of days. This was the Indian summer, because It afforded the Indians another opportunity of visiting the settlements with their destructive warfare." This, furnishes a definite explanation and establishes.; itself by priority in. the absence of earlier conflicting information. It will be noted that in the more careful usage, the definite article "the" Invariably forms part of the phrase "the Indian summer." This would seem to > iupl« it directly and to this state, can Pennsylvania title significantly with Indian activities and certificate in either case be restored? A. No, the owner must apply for a title certificate on form 158, after which investigation la conducted. He must then make application for a new certificate on form 188, submitting an explanatory letter. Q. Will there be an extension of time for the use of 1929 license tags? A. No. Tags for 1930 have been available since Oct. 1. THE INDIAN SUMMER (Continued from page 8.) of the peculiar phenomena—the blaze and the -undue warmth—attending it. We turn to literature, therefore, in-stead of the weather bureau, for enlightenment aa to the origin of the Indian summer, and for a description, of its attributes. The material here collated, meager as it is, ought to give a more definite conception of the original and" true signification of the term. "It is the Indian summer. The rising sun blazes through the misty air like a conflagration. A yellowish, «moky haze nils the atmosphere, and' a 111 my mist lies like a silver lining on the sky," In such language Longfellow announces the symptoms accorni panying nature's relapse into fever. He further notes that the song-birds have taken flight, that the gorgeous tints of autumn's coat of many colors have faded, till orange, yellow, scarlet and crimso; have turned a monotonous russet, and that frost-bitten, wilted leaves clutter the streams. His short description closes with this whimsical picture: "All gone! Only the dismal calling of a crow, as he situ and curses that the harvest is over; or the chit-chat of an idle squirrel, the noisy denizen of a hollow tree, the mendicant friar of a large parish, the absolute monarch of a dozen acorns I" The Children's Poet apparently places the Indian summer in November, after maize and pumpkins have been garnered. As the term doubtless originated in connection with the Indian, and as Longfellow was a close student of their aun NEWS 30 tubs of water for one washing! .">&> wonder our Clothes are so clean!'' said Mrs, S,,.

Second, origin ally the Indian summer Immedlatel preceded the long unbroken stretch o winter proper, which favors Novem ber rather than October as the mont originally associated with its occur rence. Third, the term evolved out o the relation this warm season held t Indian activities. Fourth, the India summer is inconceivable without th rellmlnary and natural early period or old and wet called "squaw winter."

"to promote peace-and good will on earth; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness." These words taken from the preamble to the constitution of the American Legion express the very spirit of Armistice Day, on which let us honor our own American heroes as well as the dead of all nations engaged in the Great War, both allies and enemies. Each man died with the same steadfast allegiance to his purpose, courageous and loyal, fighting for his belief in right and his country. Their memory should preserve an everlasting international peace, on which the progress of the world and each nation depend.
