Statistics compiled by the Goodrich tire concern give a total of 10,524,395 cars and trucks registered in this country in 1921. This is an increase of 1,229,023, or 13.2 per cent over 1920 when there were 9,295,372 motor vehicles registered. North Carolina registered 140,869 in 1920 and 152,990 in 1921. South Carolina had 93,843 in 1920 and only 90,546 in 1921—to say nothing of how many the boll weevil drove under the shed.
