In spite of the exceedingly destructive war in Europe, which caused a sudden and complete stoppage of the demand for motor cars in that quarter of the world, 1914 will be marked in history of automobiling as one of the most successful ever enjoyed by the industry. That such should have been the case is considered extraordinary by those who are familiar with the conditions that existed in the early months of the year. For the first six months, with only a few exceptions, the manufacturers appeared to be facing a disastrous season. Reports of record crops appeared to mark the turning point, for July, August and September were marked by a flood of orders that in some cases swamped the facilities for production. It is estimated that the output of motor cars by American factories during the year reached the enormous total of 500,000, which, added to the total of approximately 1,400,000 cars which were in use at the beginning of the year, brings this country within reaching distance of the two-million mark, a staggering total for a type of vehicle which must be regarded as quite as much of a luxury as a utility.

The war broke out at a time when exports of motor cars were extremely heavy, cutting off a huge source of income to the American manufacturers. For the eight months up to August 1 the value of cars exported to foreign countries amounted to about $25,000,000. More than 90 per cent. of the cars exported were absorbed by Great Britain and her colonies and Continental Europe. Except from Canada and Australia the demand ceased at once, and even the overseas dominions of Great Britain evinced conservatism, due to the magnitude of the struggle in which they were so greatly interested. There was left, therefore, only South America as a foreign buyer of American cars, and in the closing months of the year there were indications that the Argentine Republic, Brazil and other southern automobile-using countries, with their supply from Europe shut off, would prove good customers of the American makers of motor cars.

On the other hand, the war brought unexpected good fortune to the motor truck division of the industry-a division that had been far from prosperous. Early in the great struggle Germany utilized motor-driven vehicles to wonderful advantage in the advance on Paris, and the allies found them equally valuable in the transportation of troops, light artillery and supplies. both for guns and men. At the end of two months, however, the constant grind over rough roads and fields had begun to tell on efficiency, and orders were issued to replenish the supply. During the first week in October representatives of France and Great Britain purchased nearly 2,000 motor trucks from American manufacturers, an outlay of over $6,000,000, and negotiations then under way indicated that the various warring nations would take many thousands additional as soon as they could be supplied.

The importation of automobiles to the United States, which had been growing gradually smaller, almost ceased with the start of the war. After August 1 no more cars were received from France, Germany and Belgium. Italian factories were allowed to continue their export business, thereby helping to meet the comparatively small demand for foreign cars. Finding the Continental market closed to them, Great Britain sent a few passenger cars here, and found a ready demand.

All records for motor car production were broken in the twelve months up to August 1 by a Detroit manufacturer of small, low-priced cars, whose distribution in that period was in excess of 255,000. Four years ago the whole world did not produce so many cars in a season. This same maker has announced a rebate in cash to his customers if, in the next twelve months, he sells 300,000 cars, and there is no doubt that the mark will be reached.

It had been anticipated that 1914 would be marked by an extraordinary advance in the production and sale of very small light cars and of cycle cars, the latter being a vehicle of less than normal width and of light weight. This, however, failed to eventuate, the public appearing to prefer either the small machines of normal type at a slightly higher price, or the motorcycle, with or without a side attachment for carrying an extra passenger. Just what the future of the cycle car will be is difficult to predict, but at any rate the motor-wise public of 1914 found little merit in it.

The one drastic departure from accepted automobile practice during the year was the offering toward the end of the season of an eight-cylinder car by an American concern. This did not, however, mark a departure from accepted practice, as a French manufacturer had been marketing a similar car for some years. In this country, however, the multi-cylinder idea had progressed to only six, and the innovation was received with intense interest as marking a radical change in type that might some day prove dominant. The popularity of the innovation, like all those which are introduced in the making of automobiles, cannot be gauged for six months or a year.

In the cars brought out during the last twelve months there has been a very noticeable change in appearance, due to the almost universal adoption of the so-called stream-line body, by which is meant a body in which there are as few angles as possible. Every effort has been made to obtain flowing lines from front to rear, and to eliminate, as far as possible, the piling up of accessories of one kind or another, on the running board, etc. As a result the hood over the motor in the new cars shows a slope from the radiator upward to the dash, which also slopes, its top merging into the flowing lines of the body, giving a most pleasing effect to the whole.

Racing during 1914 continued on about the same plane as in the two or three years previous. The great road classics-the Vanderbilt Cup and Grand Prize-were again contested at Los Angeles, the former being won by an American car that had previously been little heard of, and the lat ter, also by a domestic creation, but one that had been extremely successful in high-speed contests. The 500-mile race was renewed on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and resulted in a decisive victory for French machines, which filled the first four places at the finish, with René Thomas, a Frenchman, showing the way. There were no fatalities during the race, although thirty cars participated, and only one serious accident. Abroad the Grand Prix was renewed in France, and that country's industry was humiliated when three German cars of the same make filled first, second and third places. Death took its usual toll among racing drivers during the year, the list including Spencer Wishart. one of the best of the younger school of American drivers, who was killed at Elgin, Ill., in the running of the Elgin National race, and Jules Goux, one of the most famous of French pilots, and winner in 1913 of the 500-mile race at Indianapolis. Goux was killed in France while practicing for the Grand Prix.

It had been expected that there would be great activity during the year in the building of motor speedways, but such was not the case, only one two-mile oval in Sioux City, Iowa, being opened. The efforts to furnish New York with high speed motoring through a medium of this kind came to naught, but there are indications that the metropolis may have a speedway at least by the Fall of 1915, negotiations being under way to transform one of the old horse-racing tracks to such a use.

Touring in automobiles was greater in the year just ended than ever before, thousands upon thousands of motorists electing thus to spend their vacations on the good roads to be found throughout the Eastern States. New England, especially the White Mountain district, was again the objective of the majority, but there was shown an increasing trend toward the Middle West, while a greater number than ever made the trans-continental journey between New York and Pacific coast points. The run from ocean to ocean has, in fact, become so common as hardly to excite any comment, and it is expected that many thousands will utilize the motor car in their journeys to the Panama-Pacific Exposition at San Francisco this year.

The good roads movement, which got under way strongly about five years ago, continued to gain strength during 1914, and thousands of miles of highways were built or improved in various parts of the country. The Lincoln Highway, which eventually will be a first-class trunk line between New York and San Francisco, made distinct progress, and it is not too much to hope that within two years it will become a delightful reality for the tourist.
