It may seem an early d.ay to vrlte in this vein, but so widespread is tho interest already taken in the convention that the assertion is fully justified,-  From the extreme East to the limits of the West, good roads and automobile organizations have informed George A. McMamee, that they are sending delegates to the convention. The Good Roads League of British Columbia � is full  of enthusiasm and ' will send delegates from Vancouver, New Westminster. Victoria and other centres. The New Brunswick Automobile Association is organizing quite a. ilplegatioa through its president. T. P.

Many of the delegates : from the East, have ne\-cr visited the West, and so the ralhvify passenger agents are getting together to map out some side trips from Winnipeg �o as to provide entertolnment for.the vis- , itors. The Central Canada Coionltatlon and Highways Asaoclatlon of Fort WU-Ham, tho Commercial Club of Duluth, the Fort William Board of Trade are all sending delegates, the former body being keenly interested in a highway from Fort William to Winnipeg.

Special Trains Delegates east of Montreal will assemble at the latter city where special puUmaus will be provided,' and pull-maus will also be joined oh at Ottawa and other points, so that by the tlmo the delegates reach Winnipeg they will be together in one or two special trains.

The daily operating cost of a motor truck is from $12 to ?20 a day, including maintenance and all items entering Into operating costs. Women motor drivers have greatly increased since the close, of the world war as the result of Red Cross and other welfare activities. Embracing over 3,000 miles, the Old Spanish Trail, now being transformed into a model highway, will run from California to Florida. Belgium is preparing extensive higiiway improvement, and it is in' tended lo make the new roads the finest, if possible, in the world. The automobile industry in the United States employs more than 1,-000,000 men and women.

Classed as an export in pneumatics, ,ro. odts of Americans to the Dominion! this summer for temporary residence. While they hesitate to attribute this to a general desire to escape the drought, they report that they had met New Yorkers who frankly admit-  ted that they wished to spends their holidays where they could obtain stlm- > ulatlng refreshment without taking a j chance on wood alcohol. Evidently many Canadians are alive to tho possibilities of the situation. Recent Sunday editions of New York newspapers contained an advertise-; ment of a summer cottage near Tor-; onto for rent. It was not the charm 1 of the scenery, the near-by-golf course, j the pleasant neighborhood, or the ad-^ vantage of all modern convef�ienc6s! that was emphasized In the advertising, "No prohibition restrictions"! was the inducement offered to pros-' pective tenants.

Last fail we were able to put in production the present Gray-Dort-the first car to offer you heaping, peace-time value. Overshadowing Othep Light Cars Ordinary light car standards did not satisfy us in building the Gray-Dort. So we built a bigger and better motor- with 33^-inch bore and 5-inch stroke; with a heavy crankshaft-weighs 40 pounds, as against about 25 pounds in other light cars. Specially-designed, quiet valves; extra-large wrist-pins; extra-light, //irec-ringcd pistons. As in the motor, so it is throughout the chassis. A cellular-type radiator and extra big water jackets for cooling. *A heavy, safe steering gear which is unusually easy on the driver. Frame heavier and sturdier than the light car standard. Rear axle specially strong and fine-and built right under our supervision here in Chatham. The long springs are built here, too. The gas tank is big and is placed in the rear for convenience and appearance. *The emergency brake is on a lever, as in big cars-and the brake lining is Thermold. Convenience has not been sacrificed to sturdineas in ^the Gray-Dort. *The side-curtains open with the ^oors as in cars costing $2000 and up, and they fit smoothly. The tonncau has very much more leg-room. *A shorter, smarter cowl does the same for the driving compartment. Tha gears can be shifted with the pressure of two fingers. The brakes are positive iii action. To drive a Gray-Dort is real pleasure. Clothed in Beauty Completing this high-grade chassis is a body wonderfully good-looking. The smooth lines do not force themselves upon your attention. They are not. extreme. But always you are aware of their supreme good-looks. And Gray-Dort design is the type which remains in favor for many years. And then .the wonderful Gray-Dort finish! We have spent 60 years developing this finish for vehicles. It is applied as only master craftsmen can finish a job. It is lasting and lustrous. It is one of the outstanding features of the Gray-Dort. ^�'You will notice, too, the rather high hood with its many long, narrow, louvres, *The smart top, hand-tailored in our own shops. The French pleated upholstery. The full sweep of the heavy' gauge fenders. At $1365 the Gray-Dort will be the fastest selling car of the year. The output has been doubled. Yet there is every sign of a shortage. We advise you to sec the Gray'iDort dealer now. Features marked with this asterisk are some of the improvements new to this Gray-Dort.
