new type of car—a car whose Unes
are made up •of plane surfaces
blending; into one another in a most
pleasing manner.
Viewed from any angle the new
Velle is strikingly attractive. Its
straight-line, high cowl body and
tapering hood gives the eye a long
unbroken unit of beauty from front
to rear. Velie claims the honor of
being the first to offer this new
much-sought design.
The new Velie 48 includes com
forts that match its art—deep
plaited upholstery, more leg room,
very wide doors, with storage spaces
and other interesting places—there
and compartments in seat backs
are pleasing ideas everywhere.
Velie also presents a new motor
in this car. A motor having an in
ternally heated vaporize—a motor
which burns low-grade fuel suc
cessfully, and gives vastly more
miles per gallon. The Velie motor
is balanced and has a four-bearing
crank shaft; runs solidly without
vibration at all speeds and has high
grade bronze backed bearings every
where, which simply means a mini
mum of upkeep and expense. Velie
claims more improvements in its
new motor than has been advanced
in a decade.
There are five body styles in the
passenger roadster, four-passenger
1920 Velie line, touring car, two
sport model, four-door sedan and
coupe. The new Velie colors are
varied and beautiful. Even now
the Velie Corporation is in the midßt
of a production far greater than

islative forces are again on the trail
of Old High Cost of Living. These
forces are In full awing, with the Sen
ate iatrlct subcommittee talcing the
lead at the National capital.
So far, Old High Cost has had his
usual luck in keeping more than a
tail's length ahead. His pursuers have
been unable to "get anything on him",
that is, anything they can tie to.
This last chase started a few days
ago, when Government employes de
cided they had reached the limit of en
durance in trying lo keep up with as
cending food costs. Their appeals for
economic relief reached Congress with
the result that the hunt for the old
villain was on again, and the entire
country soon joined in the chase. Al
ready the pursuers are striking the
usual conflicting und diverging trails,
une scent leads to the packers, an
other to the butter and egg trust, an
other to this, another to that.
In all of the hearings and discus
sions, both In public and private, earn
est seekers after the fundamental rea
sons which underlie the present causes
of unrest, And themselves coming out
on the same old trail, the unimproved
road. jt is the profiteer's safe am
bush, protecting as it does a long line
of cormorants in the form of unneces
[ sary middlemen who are aided in their
I nefarious work by the devious and un
reliable routes to, market.
Whatever the remedy proposed,
there is always the matter of trans
portation. Regardless of how many
marketing agencies may be brought
into operation, or how many restric
tions may be thrown around the mid
dleman, no permanent solution can be
reached until the road between the
producer and consumer is shortened by
types of construction that will in
sure a speedy and open thoroughfare
to market under all weather condi
tions. These are facts that are be
coming more and more deeply im
pressed upon the legislative mind as
high cost investigations proceed
It is admitted that road building has
been given a tremendous boost dur
ing the past few year a But even with
construction under way practically in
every state, such construction is
largely in patches, and the process of
working out from the neighborhood
road to a comprehensive system must
necessarily be slow, too slow in fact
to meet the economic demands of the
hour which are now being so sharply
expressed in the cry for lower prices
on food.
Far-sighted members of Congress
have had in mind the need for a still
greater development of public roads
with the result that a bill for a Na
tional highway system is now pend
ing in the United States Senate, intro
duced by Senator Townsend. chairman
of the committee on postofflces and
post roads. It is proposed in this
measure to create a Nation-wide sys
| tern of highways under Federal con
trol and maintenance embracing not
less than two per cent nor more than
five per cent of the mileage in actual
use in each state. The location of the
Federal lines is to be determined by a
Federal Highway Commission, after
advising with the various state high
way departments.
"Apparently the time has come
.when a motorist can forget his tires.
Not so long ago every driver's pleas
ure was disturbed by constant fears
amounting almost to certainty that
something would happen to his tires
before he got home. But I hardly
ever give a thought to my tires now
adays. I don't have to, because
tire trouble is the exception and no
longer the rule."
This was the comment of a busi
ness man who was discussing re
cently the merits of the Royal Cords
of the United States Tire Company.
"Good roads have eliminated most
of the causes of punctures,'' he con
tinued, "and the tire engineers have
perfected in this cord tire a light,
lively tire that has the endurance
of steel. This achievement has had
its part in adding to the popularity
of motoring."

Passenger Cars and Trucks
Realizing the big and growing de
mand for automobiles the members of the
Harrisburg Motor Dealers' Association will
hold a Summer Auto Show at the Grangers'
Picnic, William's Grove, in order that pros
pective buyers will have opportunity to see
the new models for the coming season.
This being the first Summer Auto
Show the Motor Dealers of Harrisburg have
held, it will be looked forward to with keen
interest by all motor enthusiasts. .
The necessity of having an auto
mobile in the daily life of every family and
business is too well known to dwell at length
upon that subject.
The automobile is established as
the prime means of transportation, not only
for private use but for business purposes.
The automobile brings the country
in close touch with the city, one city in close
touch with another, and friends only a few
minutes or a few hours apart.

As a matter of fact we have made

tires. We stress quality.
