"We have a peculiar problem 'In
human nature with,which to contend
In the making ot motor trucks," says
Horace <I\ Thomas, chief engineer' of
Lhe Keo  .Motor Car Co.
"That Is the pioponslty which is almost  universal,  to overload  a truck.
"Any maker who would make a truck
whose maximum load capacity was
1.S00 pounds and then label It a %-ton
vehicle would find he had a mighty,
short lived truck. Not once in fifty
times 'would the load be "K-ton or less.
In many cases it would be fully twice
that,
'Jn trying to figure out the cause for
this, 1 came to the conclusion that a
large percentage of truck drivers have"
graduated from the old horse vehicle.
Of course, horse-drawn vehicles at oiip
time had a capacity rating,-but it was
so long ago nobody remembers it.
All Sams the Horse. ■
"The driver gradually got to know by
experience, or by a kind of instinct, how
much his horses could pull over a cer,->
tain section of road and he -loaded to
that capacity. He did not know or did
not care whether it was one. ton, two
tons or five tons." If .the horses could
get away with It. he considered .that all
sufficient.
"When the same man was given the
mastery over a motor truck, he applied
a similar principal, but with this difference, that if. the truck could not pull
it on high, itcould on intermediate,'«ane|
and if it could not manage on intermediate it could do'it on low gear. Only
when, the strain tore out,the gears".or
twisted off driving shafts ,did the suspicion enter his mind'that he had perhaps overloaded the truck.- , r „",'<$■
"It was in vain you marked the capacity of the truck on a handsome
brass plate and put that^'conspicuously
was rated at two tons „ he -.seemed <tp
on the dash in plain view..-.If the truck
was -rated at ^two-tont, he seemed j. to
figure that if he"started out^with.a fo?irr
ton* load and- came back empty,-* the
average .had been " two, and therefore
must be all right!- So far as he. was
concerned it was all right If.the truck
got away 'with it. at all. ' ... >  «'
"In   the   earlier   days,   engineers , all
wrestled   with   this  problem   of  making,
trucks and  rating them at their actual
capacity, and somehow, hoping to c.hangf;
human .nature.- <•"'-." _ >''
r.      rt-aaUy Oavs It Up. ,      «
"Finally, we Reo folk gave It up. We
made up our minds we could not change
human ^nature-and -so;lwe might better,^
change our .standards: add safety factors in all mechanical parts—shafts,
springs, bearings, etc.; to compensate
for the peculiar mental attitude of the
average   driver.
"Nowadays it is perfectly safe to
overload   a   Reo   truck   100  per  cent.
"Of course, we do not advocate this,
but we tell thc owner he may do so at
his own option, always, with the understanding that he will get a certain
amount ol service out of the'truck one
way or another—half a life for a truck
with 100 per cent, overload; normal life
tor a truck with normal load; and the
life of the truck will bo greatly increased and cost of upkeep greatly reduced by just so much as he,may save
it  in   this   regard.
"Our familiar phrase; 50 per cent,
over-size in all vital parts is not merely
a sales slogan: It is an engineering
fact. The standard was adopted as insurance against a force that iwas bigger than ourselves and which we there-
lore could not control, namely, old j
human nature.'-4

FEDERAL TRUCKS ,
DOING GOOD'WORK
The fact that several Federal trucks
have been doing heavy service daily
in Vancouver for the past seven years,
is the reason for several new sales of
Federals completed this week,' comments H. J, Tucker, local distributor
i
for the Federal line. Shipments of
Federals are now on the road for
which orders have been placed by Vancouver business" firms.* Two companies
which have taken delivery of Federals
this "week arethe Bailey Shingle Company and the Johnston Storage Company.

NO OTHER TRUCK, so far as we know, is
engaged  in   so   many  different  forms   of
activity and in so many countries as this-
1500 pound Reo.
ITS FAME IS WORLD WIDE and its sphere
of usefulness.seems unlimited.
IT'IS VERSATILE—even we, had no idea in
the beginning that a truck of this size and'
power and pneumatically equipped would;
prove to be the ideal vehicle for so many'
kinds of service. {;
STOP TO THINK OF IT, you recall, of course,
that delivery vehicles had under the old
conditions been reduced to certain standard-
capacities.
FOR EXAMPLE, in the old days we had one "
horse teams, two horse and  occasionally
three horse teams.
THE ONE HORSE LOAD; about 1500 pounds^ ;
Y'':Y constituted eighty per cent, of the 'traffic' j'
NOV/ MODERN BUSINESS requires a
vehicle capable of carrying the same load-
but carrying it at least four times as fast.
Doing that, the 1500 pound pneumatic tired
Reo truck, can do the work formerly done
by four single rigs.
THAT'S THE ANSWER—anyone can see it
now. * The ^-TON "Hurry-Up" wagon is
the answer to 80 per cent, of your hauling
problems.
IT'S MORE EFFICIENT—it's more economical. It gives the customer better service—
quicker service at a lower cost to you.
THE ONLY LIMIT to the usefulness of this
34-TON Reo seems to be—our capacity for
making them.   Demand seems limitless.
THEREFORE ONLY THOSE who place their
order with us at once, specifying immediate
acceptance of delivery* can be sure of getting this ^-Ton Reo., Avoid disappointment and order'now/   ' :
