You know all tbo lough ones yourselves and the real sood onea Boldooi take in mixed-company like JJtis. As you know 1 have the honor to ho president o( the Alberta Moto.r Ijea- guo, eakl to be n dead one by, most automobile owner? because they do not get godtf roads for the (wo dollars they pay to become ID embers 'and the qr league button turnfulied Is act ivprfli thEi urico'asKed.

They were therefore taxed .extra to pay for that damage, and the money should naturally ho used for the repairing of that dajuago. Every auto owner hiving Invested in [his car a respectable amount and this j investment at tho mercy of the roads rate ot depreciation depending j on tho should not the auto owners make, It their business to see that tho extra tax Is used for tho upkeep of tho roads? The value ot organization Is.gen- erally-admitted. If. to Bill Lent's simile, a. barber with an inrestmen' ot or finds an organization 01 advantage, how much moro valuable Is nn organization lo the car ownei with his .comparatively large Invest menl?

These two factors should nave a lot to do with getting together a strong -organization that tan introduce legislation of benefit to not only Uic pleasure motorist bill 'to the farmer, commercial traveller and tho tourist. -The tourist is said to; be tfie best paying crop' vtuey grow in California, and other countries where they think It worth to pay- particular attention to their comfort, and now, that the U.S. is hone dry to all those who can- not pay twenty-five bucfca tor. a quart of Scotch and only partly dry the trend of tourists is Our way if we pay sonie attention to our ronda and the -Way we use tbe stranger when in our infdsl: To upon .Hie need for and value ul'.aii organization of ail to own ors, bringing iL to, the ot such an intelligent body of citizens as tliosg.iircHeni 1 feel Js harcUy One iioinl Uetts tilings. to my atten- tion which is gene sight of is tlio fact that the autonioblle tux was originally based entirely oil .the proven fact that a moving v vehicle did ganiiatlon througa Which, tils' know! to ilocal needs', becom jarallable and the- the of -thpse .Vn ingi'uBed t RccompHsh.lhe'mbstgoad would seem to he. greatly Increased.

A club with a bli membership like the city ot Calgary's ub say, "Why should we contribute thousand dollars to a Motor League! do we get out of U? We have lenly of other use for our funds." 4nd a small club says, "What's the use f us going into the big lubs will run Ihe show arid We want o fix up somo signs showing the way nto o'Jr town or fix a piece ot rop.d hat needs fixing." A question comes np as to whcr? he Nalional Highway should run vhen buill. Edmonton wanls It up heir way and becauee they tear-that hey cannot get a resolution passed at a League convention favoring their oute they withdraw tro-ni member- ;hlp and so it goes. The big difficulty the League has md in the past is to get an organizer who will get results..and bring In some funds'. Wo have tried with the. material we have been able to find and 1 must admit we haven't been able so far to get encogh money to pay our debts. We owe money lo Lent and others now. ,We were forlunale enough to'secure the sen-Ices of Sir. Fred Belts for this year.- He has had experience and believes he can make a success of a League ln; Alberta. To sjet him lo'move to Alberta the offl cers of the Alberta Motor League had to put up.a fund, not as a gift 01 bonus, but'as a-loan. We expect il will bo repaid to us by Mr, Belts.will] the.kind assistance of gentlemen like you are here today. I tell you nol expect .to .make a a..jfot'pr League this year In Alberta but he-has. In.mind tbe sticking al if an. immense cash revenue which Is I wrought into the community in return' !or which nothing is lent-out ot it. This must 'surely bo appreciated in these days when the rate oi exchange tae been so ULgh between Canada and the United States, to the Inconven- ience and IOES of many people on both tides of the line.' "May I say that the development of a highway eyeteiu In Canada that will reach from ocean to ocean Is tho very bestvihrcalment from every point ot vieir that'Canida csn make. The man claims that the building of'this luxury or simply for the pSeasiira of a minority ot the peo- ple is foolish. He has given no thought wh'sfsTsrt; ihi subject. The man who uses 'tte' highway for pleasure Is he mah who pays the dividend on the osl ot the road. "An autoniobilist .these days uies Is car' as muQh' for his vacation as e'd6es perhaps more- o.

"I want to show you as my first picture a suggested route from the Atlantic to Cape Scott on Vancouver Island, oo the Pacific Coast. This is] taken from a phamphlet issued by the Island Automobile Association of Vic- toria. It Is obviously only a sugges- tion, and only names a few of the important towns along the route, but it is a rente that can be easily fol- lowed, and wiit bo a benefit to the country generally.
