“YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED”

This ” Complete Guide to the Road,” written by McCullough and decorated with line drawings by Fougasse, of Punch, deals delightfully with every side of motoring. Road signals, for instance. Drawing—a blank page : legend—” I am going to appear suddenly from nowhere and dash ‘straight across the road with a basket of groceries on my handlebars.” Then the series of drawings entitled ” Get off the road ” in which the driver of the larger of each pair of vehicles gesticulates fiercely at his humbler com

panion. Most amusing and at the same time too true. The text is as scathing 45 the drawings. We liked the chapter about dashboard instruments such as the radiator thermometer, which is ” a little device which tells you if the water is too hot. If it keeps on pointing to boiling, you need a new fan-belt or a new radiator or a new engine, or else a new little device.” ” Le Touring ” contains misleading notes on the road book and hotel classification. Figure Studies gives vr-duahly data such

as the composition of petrol, which ;.s stated to be a compound with 33 per cent. Heating properties, 17 per cent. Cleaning properties and 50 per cent. Odour. Not the least entertaining part of the book are the famous Last Words such as ” He’s gaining-1 can see him in the mirror.”

” You Have Been Warned ” is published by Methuen at five shillings, and re) motorist who buys it can fail to be amused, and, unless he is that unusual person, the Perfect Driver, to be improved as well.
