because- it is built for running
over city streets or country roads
in all seasons and all weather;
because it carries its load at two to three
times horse speed; because its power plant is
so simple that a competent driver of horses
can soon master it.
The International Motor Truck can be used
every line of business for every form of
light hauling and for quick trips
with any load up to its rated
capacity and will do it at a cost
much less than horses to do the

May Reverse Ruling
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, April W.(-peclBl.)
Tho Interior department Is contemplat
ing a reversal of Its ruling that only
qualified homesteaders can become as
signees of entrymen on reclamation pro
jects. Tho question arose recently
through an Inquiry from II. J. Bcger of
tho North Platte Water Users' association
ns to the position of tho department. It
appears that the uct of Juno 3, 1910.
was construed up to ahout two years ago,
to permit assignments of theso lands to
ho mnde to persons who were qualified
homesteaders. On Beptemhor 14, 191:', the
department made a different ruling, and
entrymen hnve since been uncertain us
to which opinion would prevail. In a let
ter to Senator Hitchcock today the de
partment states: "It reallazcs the Im
portance of theso decisions uml Is mull
ing a full Investigation of the whole sub
ject. Pending any decision to the con
trary tho rules and regulations ns Issued
will control." it Is intlmactd, how
ever, that tho investigation mny result
In allowing assignments to ho made to
others than qualified homesteaders.
