LADIES CLASS MAY BE ORGANIZED
-------
“Why shouldn’t a woman known how to make minor repairs on her automobile?” said Fred V. Bott, instructor of the Central Y. M. C. A. Automobile, Farm Tractor and Gasoline Engine School, when asked if it would be possible to organize a class for ladies. “It is easily possible for a lady to oil and grease her car and make minor repairs without soiling her clothing” Mr. Bott said. “In many of the high class garages in the large cities the mechanics wear white linen coats and any man would lose his position if he could not work without getting grease on the painted part of a car.”
General Secretary E. G. Corwine stated that a ladies class would be organized in case there proves to be a sufficient demand for it. The class would meet for one hour each morning and the ladies would be taught how to oil and grease a car, how to make minor repairs and adjustments, how to detect car trouble, and how to drive. Individual instruction would be given in driving. Any lady interested in such a class should telephone Mr. Corwine at the Central Y. M. C. A.
