This Is rsally a column on automobile driving, taking as Its text tbs above pertlnant Inquiry. I am convinced that the sl*e of one's feat ahouUJ have a great deal to do with the eqrt of a driver one Is — and what le more Interesting to us then the sort of drivers amoqg whom we do live and may die? That belief would account'of course, for the existence, of the popular belief that men are better drivers than women are. Men's feet are so-much bigger. They can sprawl down over the clutch, can thump down on the brake, and the car Is powerless to do anything but obey. Men can back up. 1. e, they can make a car back up, without straining their physical being to the farth est satremlty; they can turn a wheel without having to call on (ha physical reserve that Is the herltsge of centuries. Bui women — most of them-can't. The struggle of getting the ear out of the Ught place In the garage, of getting It out from the curb where It 1s parked with two Inches space In front and In back. Is enough to ruin moat womens dispositions to say nothing of the car's fender*. It's enough to send the blood-pressure up half a dozen notches and to do a good bit toward burning out ths clutch. I'd rather have a good serious stuck of Indigestion than to try to park on Main street any day between nine and five while at theatre hour the situation Is such that the mere thought of It can promote the good serious attack. But this does not «Ute that men are better drivers than wom en. It only Implies that they ought to be — In accordance to the else of tbelr feet. In the fact that the women's feet are smaller Is Inherent the reasons why some of them aro better drivers than some of the men. Women, realising that they can't depend so much on their feet, use their heads more In driving cars. I trust ths picture Is not too grotssque. for the Intention In presenting It Is most laudable Women have to rely an cajolery to get cars around corners Inatead of relying on brute force. (Sometimes, . they havs to rely on cajolery to keep cars going If It happens that they've been driving In White Plains, for Instance, and they ’ re taking a right turn on a red light.) Women have to coax ears where men can force them, but of course women have had good experience In coaxing while, on the other hand, It's good there exists something that men can forte without being answer ed back. ... * Some lime ago a New Tork columnist wrote on some sub ject and a reader wrote to him and said, \1 liked that column on the lion. In fact. I've always liked It. I tried ft ten years ago when you first used It and I've liked It every year since.' But the Hon may have Irritated the columnlsf — Just as born- blowsrs Irritated this ons. Why do peopls arrive at a bouse, pork comforubly In the gwt.ter and blow the ear's horn Incessantly? Can't they walk 'or don't the doorbells ring? Were they brought up In such com plete Isolation from human kind that they never heard of other people's nerves or has It never struck them that sometimes some one In the neighborhood may be asleep? Possibly the sound of one's own automobile horn never grows sour In one's cars. Just the sight of one's child's face never grows stale. Anyone who blows a horn more than three times ought to be shut up In a room wttb the horn for a day or two with the born tooting automatically every three seconds. If county motorists are going to call on- friends, they will please telephone the friends first to notify them they're coming and when they get there will they please get out and ring th- bell — and will the friends please have one outpost In the window and smother at the door so there will be no possibility of the vlsi'ors carrying on like a fog-horn with a commlaa'on fet testing at regular Intervals? Thank you The next Invention, doubtless, will be the collapsible car. Fold It up and put It In your pocket when you gj In to call. I Imag ine the apartments of 1925 will hare special closets for the guests' folded cars to be parked In during the evening bridge. There ^certainly won't be any room for them\|n the streets. Where I live there's plenty of room, but something else has oc curred. The street has become what's known as a Restricted Area. Why, I don't know, excepting that possibly they had one such area hanging around the police station and didn't know where to put It. So the out-of-the-way county pocket that has plenty of room for trees and flowers and grass and children now frowns on ears, At ft o ’ clock at night — possibly before — the guardian of th e-law comes around hanging little gr.een cards on the cars announcing firmly that If you do this again you'll hgve to go to court. The other night I had two such notices In a few hours, as though ths second guardian of the law highly approved the action of his predecessor and stood stalwartly In back of him. I sup pose that If I left the car out all night I'd have a complete col lection of the elgnaturea of all the department. Now I have to think of some method of getting In and out of the house In the restricted area without drawing a crowd of policemen all writ ing solemn messages on Uttle green cards. A collapsible motor seems the only answer. I can put It In my brief case and lay It on the bookshelf while I have my dinner. Then, another point. Why do people blow their horns In lraff! •?. Do they think the long line of cars ahead la going to melt AVray Just beesuse they happen to get noisy? Or do they think that the other peo ple like to alt out there In the heat and are really enjoying It? The stupid tooting that sometimes goqs on In congested areas has given rise In me to the Idea that possibly ths horn-blowers think the other people have hit on this unique method of getting a good coat of tan. Chauffeurs seem to be particular offenders In this raspect. I Imagine that It's because the road la their particular province, that they feel there's something official In their posi tion and that ons blow from them and everything will be dispel, lsd: j Well, It must be something. Anyhow, whatever It Is. I wish It could be cleared up. Lift's - hard enough without all those horns going so incessantly.
