Road J?ax and Gas Figures Compared Highway Bulletin Furnishes General Totals to Guide Advocates of Mo- tor Tax Law Revision Widespread discussion in Minnesota of a "gasoline tax" brought pertin- ent figures today in the bulletin issu- ed by the state highway department. Various proposals to use gasoline consumption as the yard stick for measuring the motor vehicle taxe the bulletin suggests, must recognize facts: Minnesota will continue a leader for good roads only when larger highway funds are provided, now that other states are supplying vast sums thru bond issues and appropriations. Out of 137,750,000 gallons consum- ed in Minnesota during the last year i according to the state oil inspection report, probably less than 125,000,0001 gallons were used in motor vehicles, l A 1-cent a gallon tax on gasoline, therefore, would have produced about $1,250,000, or one-fifth of the amount of revenue derived from the present .motor vehicle license schedules. While a 5-cent gasoline tax would approximate the revenue return on motor vehicles, a 7-cent tax would be necessary to yield the expected an- nual total of $10,00,000 of trunk high- way funds, now that federal aid is reduced. But with a reasonable license tax furnishing regular funds, an addition- al tax of 2 cents a gallon on gasoline and used for permanent betterments would mean $2,500,000 extra improve- ments every year, paid for in part by tourists from other states and taking but $7.50 from the average car owner in return for greater savings he would make on repairs, tires and gas- oline. "Tests show that a car making 15 miles on a gallon of gasoline ou unim- proved roads will cover from 18 to 20 miles a gallon on good roads," the bulletin continues. 'Minnesota has reg- istered nearly 850,000 motor vehicles. Average annual travel is esti.mated at 5,000 miles, making a grand total of 1,750,000,000 car miles a year in this state. A saving of only a cent a mile on car repairs tires and gasoline thus would aggregate $17,500,000 or more [ollows the ValryUow 8 e SuRE 90U AT'reo -THe Nation@! .1, irv 'i'-.,,.11...v WIN C,TtE:S .,.g.'ur=&',l.S, OCT. 7 -I 4 CATARRH Catarrh Is s Local dlseee greaOy in- fluenced by Constitutional conditionS, HALL' CATARRH MEDICIN]D con- Sists of aU Ointment which gives Quick Relief by local appliction0 and the Internal Medicine, a Tonic, which acts through tho Blood on the MucoUs Sur- faces and aldst8 in ridding your ystem of Catarrh. 8old by druggists for over 40 Year F. J. hsney & CO., Toledo, O. Extend Food Supply Radius 50 Miles ERBERT HOOVER says: "The motor truck has given every town an extended radius of food supply by some 50 miles, and thereby protects such vital matters as milk and perishables" Formerly 10 miles was as far as Je farmer could profitably haul his produce. The increasing number of motor trucks on the farm is making the farmer more and more independent of other forms of transportation. -It is extending a primary market five times, giving the farmer greater security and doing much to insure ;him the full profit from his crops and produce. "E. E. La Schum, Superintendent of Equipment of the American Railway Express Company, says that while the average mileage of trucks is about 40 miles per day, they are capable of making 100 miles without undue s:ain. This means that in every truck there are 60 unused daily transportation miles, which can be used when emergency calls. The farmers of the 10 states served by the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) own 46,582 trucks. These represent unused, potential trans- portation of 2,794,920 miles per day--quite enough to make the farmer feel reasonably inde- pendent and to make the city dweller secure. The value of these trucks to their owner and to the community, depends upon an ample supply of gasoline and oils, instantly available when needed. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana), recognizing its duW to the public, has organized its distribut- ing fficiIities to a point where only a complete breakdown of public utilities can prevent its Supplying these trucks with oil and gasoline needed, no matter in what comer of the 10 states they may be. In the cycle of service to which the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is committed, the truck plays just as important a part as the automobile and the tractor. This entire organization is working as one man, to perfect a complete service, and to maintain this service at such a maximum of efficiency that no piece of automotive machinery in the Middle West need ever be delayed a single moment of usefulness through lack of suitable petroleum products.
