We had the early ones without windshield, the later ones that had no curtains, then the flapping curtains, and still later "winter top", followed by the "glass enclosed,'.' cars. Now with a heater, big tires and chains, a windshield wiper, and plenty of power, f^teo the highway patrol to clean the roads, we were able to get in a week's work that is marvelous in comparison with early day standards. Starting Tuesday morning, we drove through a blinding snowstorm that changed to sleet, then back to snow, for 65 miles, and kept an appointment at Lehigh, in Webster county, only a few minutes late. The only adventure occurred when we failed to see a turn in the road and ran off the grade part way. Then transfering to another car we drove 15 miles in the country over a mail route, then back to town and in our own car drove 20 miles to Fort Dodge that night.
