The first .thins they did to get around this, difficulty was to make cars heavier. This made them still worse, and-'in-addition' it was not possible-to .'sit ilres that would stantS up under: such u lumbering machine.

One oi the trade magazines w'a% nearly ruined by conducting a cam- paign Insisting that when _a man bought a car be should be able to start on a long tour without having buy additional equipment. The manufacturers took the advico ser- iously. They began to equip their cars, and the result was that tho ac- cessory manufacturers felt there- -was no longer any good reason'for their advertising their goods to the car buyer, and the magazine that made possible the present-day car, with its equipment, had a bad time while readjusting itself to the new condi- tions. About fifteen years ago there was no equipment such a.s lamps, lamp brackets, speedometers, horns, tops, windshields, tools, nor even a pump to Iiillato the tires.. All was classed a.s accesBories and had to be bought separate. Along about tliero came the change the magazine had fought for.

JJitt competition forced, man- ufacturers to try and add neiv fea- tures, and the succeeding years found further additions, until today a car is soM with practically every- thing that is designed for cfficioncy Hnd comfort.
