Big Crowds at All,
Openings in Major
and Minor Leagues
That base ball haa not gone bark Is
evident from tho size of the crowds
throughout the country.' It is admitted
that the expenses are greater than ever
before, but it must also be admitted that
the attendance haa Increased accordingly.
There is not a minor league In the coun
try that did not surpass all previous rec
ords for opening- day attendances, and
In many cities where the attendance was
r.ot so good throughout the 1914 asason,
the Attendance figure surpassed any
thing In the club's history. Some of the
major league clubs did not draw so well
in the opening day games, but that was
not for lack of base ball enthusiasm,
.since the magnates, in their, efforts to
get all there is out of the public, have
started playing interleave games they
teem to have taken the edge off open
ing day, which In the past was a gala
day throughout the circuit. Major league
crowds are large on an average, but iso
lated instances of exceptional crowdj are
not so noticeable. In the long run the
attendance at major' league games is In
creasing, and this season should be one
of the best the game haa ever known.
The minor leagues are generally the first
to show signs of the bad times, but this
season their success presages great
things for the game.
SHOW WELL IN TEST
In connection with their Interesting advertising-
campaign on Vacuum Cup Tires,
based on the certified results of the of
ficial test conducted last year on heavy
ears by The Automobile Club of America,
President H. W. DuPuy of the Pennsyl
vania Rubber company made the follow
ing statement to a press representative:
"It was with a view to obtaln1n
for the guidance of the tire user tangible,
authentic mllcatro service statistics that
we asked The Automobile CJub of
America to make an endurance test of
htrlctly stock Pennsylvania OUproof
Vacuum Cup Tires.
"Well, the results were extremely
trratifyintf. Individual mileage records of
10.164. 3.2t, 8.9. 7.600 were run up, one

nino stoik tires was (,7iio miles, and not
once durinp th!s severe 114-day test did
a tinple tire show the slightest evidence
of defective materials ur workmanship.
"Naturally, we take a Justifiable pride
In the outcome! of this test. I might
add. however, that good an our tiros were
last year as evidenced by the club's test

REO TRUCKS CARRY BIG
LOADS OF MILK AND CREAM
Ira Wilson, dairyman of Redford, Mich.,
says It would be Impossible to do wlt,h
horses what he docs with motor trucks.
Not only would It be impossible for hte
horses to cover the ground the motor
truck do, but the slow pace of the
horses would render the entire proposi
tion out of the question.
Mr. Wilson carries milk, not only from
his own but from surrounding dairy
farms on contract with . the Detroit
Creamery company on a basts of so much

owner who was dissatisfied with his last yearns car
A Motor Car Owner being Dissatisfied
with last year's Motor. Car Experience,
called a Conference with Himself to
Determine if Possible the Reason. .
After duly Considering the question, he
Found the Reason and passed the follow
ing set of Resolutions Unanimously. The
resolutions explain the Reason.
"WHEREAS, in 1914 I started out to sell the automobile manufacturers
my old car for as high a price as I could get, and take therefor the car on
which I received the best trade; and
"WHEREAS, the car I obtained proved unsatisfactory.
"Thereore, be it resolved, that in 1915 I will forget that! own a car that
I want to sell or exchange, "
"And be it further resolved, that I am going out first to buy the best car
I can find and then sell my old car for the most I can get for it, or let the
manufacturer do it for me,
"And be it further resolved, that I will never, again go into the automobile
selling business in competition with 250 manufacturers and 600,000 owners of old
cars. I find that my motor car happiness lies in buying well and not in selling badly."
