Motor Car Craze Is Determined.  Kansans are buying too many motor cars according to a statement made today by W.F. Benson, State Bank Commissioner in Topeka.  He asserted that the farmers could add to the wealth of the State by purchasing more manure spreaders and few automobiles.  Mr. Benson also pointed out that with bumper crops, such as Kansas has had, the State should show a larger prosperity than is apparent from the banking records, despite recent record-breaking bank statements.  “Kansans are going crazy,” he said, “and sometimes I believe that the craze is getting to the point where men are buying cars and going without overcoats.”  The Evening Kansan-Republican, Newton Kansas.  Saturday, December 4, 1915.  Page 6.
