Don’t Speed I p hi Mud.
L If your auto gets stuck in the mud
don't try to put on speed to get it
out. This will only spin the wheels
and make them sink deeper. The
proper thing to do is to go slow in low
year. It is uot even good to try to
turn from side to side. When the
front wheels are turned the engine
has to push the ear against the weight
of the mud in front of the wheels.
pß’hen the wheels first start spinning
put on the emergency brake just
enough to stop the spin. Frequent
ly this will enable the wheels to take
|hoid —and you get your car out of
the mud without much trouble. In

Head of State System Says Smoking
Same For Men and Women.
Raleigh News and Observer.
“What Bryn Mawr lias done in
setting aside a room for the girls to
smoke in and thereby recognizing
the present state of affairs, otner
women's colleges will eventually do,”
Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion A. T. Allen, who is also ex
officio chairman of the booard of
trustees of the North Carolina Col
lege for Women and the East Caro
lina College For Women and the
East Carolina Teachers’ College,
predicted last night although heads
of the women’s colleges in the State
were unanimous in their disapproval
of women smoking, stating with but
one exceptiion that smoking was not
allowed in their institution.
Although the heads of the three
women’s colleges in Raleigh were
unanimous in declaring that their
students do not smoke, estimates
made by five drug stores here showed
that between seven and eight dozen
packages of cigarettes are sold school
girls each week. And as one clerk re
marked “Os course there are lots of
girls who have boys buy this ciga
rettes for them."
“I see no reason why women
should not smoke aa well as men,”
Mr. Allen said- “It is merely a part
of the general breaking down of dif
ferences between the sexes. To melt
seems there is no material difference
between a man and a woman’s smok
ing. It is manly a matter of taste or
“Os course the institutions have a

right to bur smoking among their
. students if they like. I think they
are within their rights in doing it,
: but eventually women's colleges will
recognize women’s smoking as Bryn
Mawr has done.”
