The past year lias seen a general
lightening of automobile law enforce-
ment all over the country. The days
when people could drive a motor about
as they wanted to are ituasing. The
Speedster learns to keep u w*ry eye
out for tlie cop when he passes tlirough
the towu center, hut he lets out Ills
machine in the customary way when
there Is no officer visible.
Occasionally motorists get summon-
ed into court, for small technical vio-
lations that amount to nothing
Bui to the main the large number who
ore being made to pay small fines do
not generally get their full deserts.
Many of them netvl to be assessed
much more titan Hiiy court is likely to
give them. Many could lie controlled
only by refusing them the right to
drive a machjne.
While a confirmed speeder is not
much deterred by a little flue, i : does
have a wholesome effect on tlie aver-
age driver. To be summoned into
court is a nuisance, and he looks at
the experience with misgiving.
There is u constant tendency among
drivers to relax vigilance. If tliey
are lute iu making a destination, they
quite likely fail to observe tlie usual
precautions. Most drivers do tilings
at times which tliey recognize after-
ward to irnve been reckless and con-
trary to the law.
1^ will do them good, if they an*
caught in some little act of negligence
or burst of over sliced, to appear in
court and tell their little slory to the
judge. It helps to realize that driving
a (zr through n street used by ail
classes of traffic is a heavy responsi-
bility. The man who Is occasionally
filled will probably la* led thereby to
tafut precautions that will save him a
very serious disaster later.

ANOTHER 14 POINTS.
That President WilsJon hasn't a mo-
nopoly on tln> “It points” Is the Belief
of the New York Conservation Asso-

erate with manufacturers and munici-
