There was a time when a driver could look at the dipstick which shows his oil level and tell whether his oil looked clean. Today he can get fooled because some of the additives in good oil cause it to look gray. When these desirable additives quit working, the oil clears up. Both the auto industry and the oil industry are tending to accept the use of time, rather than miles, in suggesting oil changes. The American Petroleum Institute wants to make it ;?0 days in winter, 60 days in summer but in no case more than 2,000 miles. Automotive manufacturers still favor longer periods. miles. Strong winds pushed the balloon eastward at about 60 miles per hour. Alibis Told to Cop (Continued from Page 1) of the counter. He investigated and found the woman's two children standing bewildered and afraid. The policeman caught up with the woman and she returned to the station, blushing and not talking so much, to collect her children. A few days later, a man livid with rage stormed up to the counter and wanted to know "What in hell is the matter with those idiots in Madison?" The "idiots" turned out to be the workers in the Motor Vehicle Department who had sent him two metal insert tags for his license plates making them good for another year. "I've never seen anything like this in my life," the man roared. "Imagine, sending 1909 tags!" ^ .

Then there are the motorists who laugh ind boast that they're paying for the first ticket they ever received.
