August in the east and south, tourists
and vacationists are making pilgrim

say that another thousand or two
would not be a misstatement.

rank or states having auto roads that
can be traveled with comfort and
safety. That the fame of these good
roads is spreading is evidenced by
the great increase in auto travel
from far points.
