I (An Editorial.)
IS THE COST OF THE AUTOMOBILE TOO
HIGH?—NO, WE ARE WILLING TO PAY
On the beautiful North Carolina highways
| more than 450 thousand automobiles race day
and night, and the cost of operating: them for
i one year is double the amount of our vast bond
i issues for building the roads which they use.
Had you ever looked at it in that way?'
These automobiles were bought at an average
of S6OO each, to be very conservative. That
means the people of the State paid $270,000,000
for their cars.
This sounds like a super-appropriation by
congress for war.
Then after buying our cars what do we pay
to operate them? What is the expense bill for
upkeep and tires, for parts and breaks and ac
cidents, for license plates and taxes, and oil and
gas, and for time spent in going places and
the expense incident thereto?
We don't know, but expert analysts in the
treasury department at Washington say t>.e
Rvf-r'.M.T t"Vj ef k 't'piiVfr a car is £7OO per year,

books charged to "Automobiles," please don't
ever be so simple again as to inquire of the
whereabouts of our money.

on the radio.
