The "Wren's Nest," home of Joe Chandler Harris, author of th "Uncle Remus" stories, has bee converted into a public museum ir Atlanta, Ga. Chief of Police E. J. Patton issued warning to motorists Thursday o regard the amber light in the ity's new traffic system as a stop gnal. When the amber light is on, car approaching the yellow stripe n the pavement, must come to a top. No car will be allowed to cross he yellow stripe against the amber ght without the driver of the car eing sub'jcct to traffic violation. "Right or left hand turns against he red light are prohibited the ame as straight ahead," said Chief Patton. "Cars can only proceed on he green light and pedestrians hould watch the lights and go with he traffic as much as possible. "Pedestrians must have the light o cross the streets sometime," said nhicf Patton, "without being requlr- ;d to dodgo automobiles. The p;b- ic has had time to familiarize itself with thfc new traffic system lere and strict enforcement is necessary for the safety of the public. "Some motorists, back a tew feet from the line, have been in the Habit of speeding up their cars to beat the light. When the driver coming from the opposite direction has the same idea, the two cars will meet at the intersection. In order to avoid accidents, motorists must re alize that the amber light means the same as the red--STOP." MRS. BELL HEADS COUNTY UNIT TO CUT MOTOR TAX Substantial R e d u c t i o n of Auto License Fees Sought. Mrs. Irene M. Bell. Mason City, has been named chairman of the Cerro Gordo county unit of the Iowa state motor tax reduction league, according to Vernon D. Blank, secretary, whose offices are located at 521 Insurance Exchange building-, Des Moines. When interviewed on the purpose of the league, a statewide organization for the reduction of annual license fees on Iowa owned motor vehicles, Ronald Williamson, state organizer, outlined the plan of the association as follows: "In the first place we purpose to effect a substantial reduction in automobile license fees; rocond, to prevent the diversion of any funds collected from taxes levied against motorists, as was attempted in the last general assembly; third, to gather and disseminate Information to automobile owners, and fourth, to sponsor legislation to benefit every motor vehicle owner in the state of Iowa. Our program provides for the prompt payment of interest on out- ftanding road bonds and their retirement at maturity, the proper maintenance of highways, and any necessary construction. Extending System. "That motorists are being discriminated against is clearly indicated by the exhorbitant surplus in tho treasury of the highway commission and the continual addition of mileage to the primary road system. This increasing absorption of secondary roads into the primary road system is patently a means to supply an outlet for the expenditure of excessive taxes now levied against motorists, and is gradually .aking control of more and more miles of highway from the local county authorities." Mr. Wiliamson produced a list to show that Iowa is in the upper jracket of states with respect to automobile license foes. Only Louisana is appreciably higher and most of the states are much lower. Some states, notably California, have only a nominal license fee of 53 a year. Figures taken from the last annual report of the highway commission clearly show that automobile license fees can be reduced 30 to SO per cent without impairing the in terest or principal of the outstand Ing road bonds, and still leave ampl funds for the proper malntenanc of highways and any necessary con struction, according to Mr. Williamson. Increased to 8,866 Miles "The original road rogram as approved by the people of Iowa," he recalled, "embraced a total of 6.CC5 miles of primary roads. In 1933 the primary roads and extensions being: maintained by the state amounted to 8,366 miles, without this popular approval. This increasing absorption of secondary roads into the primary road system Is patently a means to supply an outlet for the expenditure of excessive taxes now levied against motorists, and is gradually taking the control of more and more miles of highway from, the local county authorities. In spite of this drastic increase in primary road mileage the last highway commission report shows a balance of several millions of dollars, with an estimated income of ?16,000,000 from the 193-1 license fees and gasoline tax. There Is also an anticipated allotment of $11.000,000 from the federal government for highway construction in Iowa during the current year. "The refunding bill passed by tho last session of the general asembly wil effect a saving of approximately SI,000,000 a year in interest on the outstanding road bonds. This saving' should be passed on to the motorist. This refunding bill referred to a.i Senate File 105 also precludes the possibility of there ever being a. property tax levied for payment oC the interest or principal on these bonds. .fZOO.OOO.OOfl Diverted. "The maintaining of the present excessive motor vehicle taxes can. only result in a continual increase in primary road mileage, or the diversion of the funds to purposes of no direct benefit to motorists. It is estimated (roads and streets issue of March 1934) that 5200,000,000 of such funds was diverted last year in the United States. "It is thus evident to anyone in possesion of the facts that the present rate of taxation on motor vehicles is entirely out of line and that motorists are being discriminated against unfairly." The state officers of the league are such men as Clark W. Huntley. former vice president Iowa Farm Bureau federation and co-author o!: the highway commission bill of owa; Charles F. Pyo, secretary o\va State Teachers association; Gibson Holliday, attorney and secretary Iowa Gravel Contractors association; T. C. Wooton, managing editor "The Iowa County Officer;" S P.

DOOLITTLE, CHICAGO THOUSANDS have changed to this "Super-charged" gasoline to get the extra power, pick-up and mileage in every gallon of Super Shell WHEN YOU have a gasoline with as many as 6900 eitra power charges to every gallon, you have a motor fuel that motorists are going to talk about! And everywhere drivers are saying: "These eitra power charges in your Improved new Super Shell give me quicker pick-up, more power, and extra mileage!" We knew you motorists would like Super' Shell. Because, first, we questioned 200,000 of you motorists and found out what you ·wanted in a gasoline. Then, we made the exact gasoline you asked for, by developing a new refining process which actually "re- makes" the chemical structure of gasoline. Here is a gasoline that is different. So different you can feel it In the surge of power when you pass cars on the road. So much better that many motorists tell us they are getting as high as J, 2, or 3 extra miles per gallon. If you haven't tried Super Shell W invite you to today. No price increase. Coiijrijlit, 103-!. Shell Tctrolcom Corporation SHELL "THOSE E X T R A F I R I N G C H A R G E S DO THINGS," says Clarence J. Hartman, Cleveland. "The bus runs like a different car on Super Shell. "WE'RE SAVING MONEY." says Mrs. A S. Terry. Detroit. "Since chaniSiiili to Super "Shell we use fewer gallon* cverv week."
