SHORT HAUL IS AUTO'S
NATURAL FUNCTION TODAY
"President Wilson's message to
congress, setting forth his reasons
for mobilizing the railroads under
government control iuferentially im
poses upon automobile users and
manufacturers the need to co-operate
voluntarily with the spirit of the
message of mobilizing the automobile
through individual initiative," said
J. N. Gunn, president of the United
States Tire company.
"Several weeks ago Colonel Sam
uel P. Colt, president of the United
States Rubber company, in an inter
view, urged automobile owners of
both passengers and commercial cars
to use their cars more and more to
relieve the transportation pressure
on the nation's railroads and mer
chants' delivery service. Other lead
ers in the country's business, not
alone those in the automobile in
dustry, have since urged that this ad
vice be followed. It has met with
"The natural function of the
automobile both passenger and com
mercial, is the transportation of man
and merchandise for short hauls. If
this is realized, a tremendous amount
of railroad mileage may be diverted
from short hauls to long hauls, and
just that much pressure on the lail
roads transportation facilities ' re
lieved." Had the Grip Three Weeks.

LEAD TO MORE
WITH SPLENDID ROADS AND DE
PENDABLE CAES AMERICAN
BUSINESS MEN SUFFER BUT
One of the chief reasons for the
rapid adoption of the automobile
was the inadequacy of the horse.
Now that there is inadequate rail
transportation, because of the war
conditions, an even wider field op
eration is offered to the passenger
The decision cf the government to
cut off drawing room cars from rail
road trains, and even to discontinue
many passenger trains that are not
considered strictly necessary ordi
narily would most inconvenience the
man of affairs. Yet the man with a
high-powered, safe, swift passenger
motor car certainly need not be in
Splendid roads connect New York
with the large number of large cities
nearby from 25 to 200 miles and
the individual transportation service
to be had by means of the motor
car can be made an actual means of
saving time. The same is true of
many other cities.
Witlr the capable, thoroughly de
pendable motor car the business man
may leave as early or as late as he
pleases, need not be delayed by the
various things than so often make
railroad trains late, and after he has
reached his destination, he has the
use of his own car while in town.
The American does not waste time
in providing substitutes for conveni
ences or necessities that may be
taken from him. And it is entirely
likely that much greater use will be
made of the highways for general
passenger transportation needs in
moderate between-citv traffic.
