Franklins have always
combined high power with
strength and light weight
That gives them good speed and carrying ability. They
were always air-cooled. They have no water-cooling appar
atus to carry. That cuts out weight and complication and all
kinds of trouble right at the start. It simplifies the whole auto
mobile. Franklins have nothing to freeze. You can use any
Franklin every day in the year.
Every Franklin has four full-elliptic springs and a laminated
wood frame which is stronger and lighter than the steel frame
commonly used, and it absorbs vibrations as no metal can do.
And all Franklins have large wheels and tires.
All this eliminates jar and shock and the necessity for bulk
and heaviness. And this is the only combination that pro
duces easy and perfect riding. quality.

Colonel Presson recommends an appro
priation of $51,100 for the next blennium.
The report says:
"No part of the pension of the mem
bers is taken. The pensions range in
amount from $10 to $30 a month. One of
the Inconsistencies we note Is that some
who are entirely helpless receive $12, while
others who are quite active receive $24 and
$;. It Is quite gratifying, however, to ob
serve that those who are helpless and those
who receive meager pensions are more con
tent and appreciate the blessings )hey re
ceive, than those who get large pensions
and can go and come at will."
Colonel Presson says there will be no de
ficiency at his Institution this year and he
