Fourteen taxi drivers of the Toledo Transfer Company guide traffic at busy corners near schools before and after classes are dismissed nt nppolnted hours each day. The city Is too poor to provide I raffle officers at each school, and the lives. of many children were placed In Jeopardy until the transfer company offered the services of Its drivers. The chauffeur-policemen are on duty on school day* early In the morning, at noon and In mid-afternoon. FORDING THROUGH THE BLUE GRASS REGION Rev. D. C. Shields, former pastor of tho Methodist church at Haven, has been making an extensive trip via Ford, throuiih Ihe land of blttegrass and tobacco—-In Kentucky, Tennessee and southern Mi- noifl. Ill u letter to K. D. Headier, of the Haven Journal, he gives some notes of his trip: "Our caravan consisted of two Fords and seven people, and a well-filled lunch box. I might say here lliut ft the lunch box did not stay "well-filled" very long. V>'o crossed the Ohio river at Evnuse vlllo and spent Hie night in a tourist camp at Henderson, Kentucky. The camp is located on the hank of tlie river, which at this place, iB one-half mile wide.

A sternwheeler pushing n large barge loaded -with coal went by, leaving in Us wake a long trail of moon-lit waters, like a path of silver. • Moonlight In Kentucky. "From up tho river came the sound of singing accompanied by a banjo. The muslo came from a party of colored folks out tor an evening. From down the river came the sonnd of thewhlBlle of a steamboat. From a wooden stretch came the mournful notes of a whip- poor-will. "The moon wont down, the Indiana shoro became a dark line like a cloud on tha horizon, and I turned In or the night, thankful that God mads so beautiful. "Early next morning we were on our way.' The road waa good and we had hopes of reaching our destination In time for supper, when we came to a slRn which Is the bane of all tourists, "Detour," Was there ever a good detour?

UNCLE SAM HAS OWN CAR detour I evor'drove over It was the best marked, proving my contention that nothing Is ever so bad but what it might be worse, Our route took us through Madlson- vllle, Hopklnsvllle and Murry. These towns are the centers In what Is known as the "dark tobacco belt of Kentuoky. Land of the Night Ride* "It was in this region that tfie Night Riders operated a few years ago, destroying tobacco J^eds and fields in order to limit the yield ot tobacco and thus Increase the price. A very drastic measure, but it seemed to be effective. One tobacco farmer told me they would realize from $100 to $150 per acre this year. But this was an exceptional year. I had heard of the "dark tobacco belt" andvaupposed It was so named because it was largely grown by colored people, but l learned It is the kind of tobacco raised that gives the name. They were cutting ami curing the crop as we passed through. "We crossed to Cumberland and Tennessee rivers, both beautiful rivers, on primitive ferry boats just large enough to hold two Fords. I said "primitive" boats. While the boats were primitive, the means of propulsion was modern. Gas launch, es placed alongside the ferry boat. •While between these two rivers it began raining on us. A slow, drizzling rain, the first we had since leaving Kansas, and we stopped Cor the night at Murry, 76 miles from our destination. But No Trouble. "The trip home was uneventful.

In selecting a piece of furniture you are sure to find out whether it iu solid wood or veneer. Yet many people who exercise care in most purchases buy automobiles without even lilting the hood or knowing about the hidden qualities of body and chassis construction that really determine one's satisfaction with a closed car. * • « We want you to lmow about the unseen qualities of the new Studebaker Standard Six Sedan. Down underneath its superb body finish is a sturdy framework of carefully selected ash, glued together and fastened in place by screws —not n&iled. Ash is scarce and expensive, but Studebaker uses it because it best combines proper weight and strength. Upholstery is genuine mohair of hi4h ouaJ/ry. Various grades of mohair look much alike^— the big difference is in the quality. Beneath this mohair covering are many nests of cushion springs, padded with heavy burlap, upholstery cotton and curled hair. Almost. any car seems comfortable on the showroom floor, but it's quality such as this that makes the Studebaker Standard Six nnuda comfortable after years of service. The same standards of excellence are maintained throughout the body and chassis. In the engine, for example, the crankshaft is completely machined on all surfaces, a practice that results in the smooth, quiet, vibra- tionlcss performance that characterizes all Studebaker cars. • . * • Judged solely on what your eye can see—in beauty of line and finish and exterior refinements—the Studebaker Standard Six Sedan will command your instant approval But go deeper than that Compare its hidden,-vital qualities—its design, materials and workmanship—with cars selling for hundreds, of dollars more. Studebaker never compromises—never uses a substitute for genuine quality. Studebaker has been building quality vehicles for 72 years. Come in and let us tell you the "inside story" oi the Studebaker Standard Six Sedan. Clark Motor Co. 110-112 West 2nd St. STUDEBAKER Washlnrton, Nov. 22.—They call It "Bruce's Chariot.!' Really the car bolongs to Uncle Sam. But C. S. Bruce of the Bureau of Standards operates It— which Is no mean teat. This government-owned flivver— unlike any other automobile In the world—la made up of 90 pieces of apparatus that tell the complete story ot what happens to a car when It's running. The apparatus on "Bruce's Chariot" tells such things as the number of explosions In each cylinder, the number of revolutions of ouch whc-1, the weight ot the air used by the engine, just how much work the piston does In aucklng In nlr and gas, and other vital facts. The stove-plpo apparatus seen above Is used to measure wind velocity and to obtain wind protection. The car Is bolng used In government tests—with a view to Improving motor efficiency and performance. warm house and a good bed when it gets cold. Most tourists will tell you ot their gas and oil consumption. I kept no record. Neither did I keep a record of our expenses. I started to, but found It was taking too much ot the joy out ot the trip so I threw uway paper and pencil and paid out my money like a millionaire traveling incognito, and enjoyed tho trip.

Even with perfect brakes, It takes an average car goins at 30 miles" an hour from 95 to 100 feet to stop. Yet many brakes ere imperfect, police will testify. For Late Sleeper*. Salona, Okla., has a sympathetic feeling toward late sleepers. It has a law prohibiting motorists to honk their horns within the city before 8 in the morning. Safety Epigram.
