GARNER GARAGEMAN ASSESSED $50 FOR_ CODEJNOIATION The NRA cracked down on the Garner Motor Sales Company .last week Monday, when H. B. Swarn- or, Mason City, deputy director of auto code compliance, assessed a fine of $25 against the company in eacih of two cases. The Garner Motor Sales Company Bella Chevrolets. It appeared from evidence that C. E. Barnes 1 , representing the company, helped two men who owned cars, presumably of other makes, seW the same, and then sold them Chevrolets. Why this was an offense against the code was not madel clear in tihe Garner Leader, which printed the following statement toy 'Mr. Barnes: "•Both these deals were made ini late February and March — times when we, the same as every other; auto dealer, were groping in darkness so iar as actual code previsions were concerned. There was general indecision as ito what could or could not 'be done, and this indecision continued until 'about April 1, when, at a meeting held in Mason City, we were given definite rules to go by. "My offense in the two instances referred to is that I acted as a medium to .bring itih'e owners of certain cans which were for sale an contact with prospective buyers. Because of my acts the sellers were enabled to secure a 'better price for their cars than we felt warranted in allowing. Im (neither case did I advise as to tih'ei probable value of the cans involved. "If an attempt to secure a satisfactory sale of a used car by a! prospective customer for a new) Chevrolet .by .simply acting as contact man is an offense deserving of punishment I am guilty." « New Larger Tire Put on Sale Here A new Goodyear G-3 tire was has been put on sale at the Del- dutch service station as the answer ;o a demand for a bigger tread for 'ast-starting and fast-stopping cars. The larger bearing surface on the road is also expected to reduce tire wear and give many more miles of service. Murtagli at-Humboldt. C. B.
