The Federation of American Motor Cyclists is making rapid progress toward its goal of 10,000 members. In the last six months almost 2,000 members have been added, which shows the growing interest in the motor cycle and in the Federation of American Motor Cyclists as it best friend. Some interesting figuring showing the advance of the motor cycle has been prepared by G. B. Gibson, Secretary of the Federation of American Motor Cyclists. His book shows 6,220 members on Feb. 21. In August, 1910, the federation had 4,556 members. Going back to 1904 the federation could only boast a membership of 192; in 1905, 520; in 1906, 822; in 1907, 1,166; in 1908, 1,622; in 1909, 2,580. Thus 2,000 members were gained from 1909 to 1910. The present year bids fair to add 4,000 members. E. M. Estabrook, Chairman of the Membership Committee, is on the job day and night.
