Owing to the rcfus.il of the supremo
court of the United rotates to review the
case, the decision of a Pennsylvania court
that a person riding on the front seat be
side tho driver is under a legal obliga
tion to act as a luokout and warn the
driver ot danger, stands as a precedent.
The . court held that the papsengrr on
the rear seat were under no such obliga
tion. The case waa that of Charles U. Hen
derson, who was injured in a collision
between the motor car In which he was
riding and a I'ennsylvanla railroad train,
near Camden, N, J. Henderson, as well
as a woman puesengur, sued the railroad

How often you hear that expres

Time was when, If you asked
three or four automobile men to
name tho highest class American
car, you would have received as
many different replies.
Today if you ask this question of
three or four well-informed men,
probably two, and possibly three,
will answer, "Lozier." Everywhere
you find this striking unanimity
in assigning Lozier first place.
Talk With Men Who Know
The man who knows Is the man
who has owned several cars the
man who puts hi car to the severest
touring uses. He is the' man who
tours far from the beaten track;
who takes his car through unfre
quented parts ,of Europe; whose
annual mileage runs into thou
sands; who demands ceaseless, un
These are men who know, and
they recognize Lozier supremacy.
You also hear Lozier termed
"The best car in America" by men
in the trade dealers, engineers,
salesmen for other cars, managers
of garages, officers of tire and acces
The opinion of such men is the
strongest endorsement; worth mere
than the experience of a man who)
has owned but one or two cars.
. Never Marketed a Mistake)
Most of the designers of medium
Ericed cars, if asked to pick out tho
est American car, would unhesi
tatingly name the Lozier. Its worth
has been proven by its consistent
terformances and by the fact that
ozicr has never marketed a me
chanical mistake. .
They know that Lozier led in
America in using improved features
now recognized as standard such
as fore-doors, 36' wheels, ball bear
ings, long wheel base, four-speed
transmission, multiple dine clutch,
Bosch magneto, double ignition, etc

Tire Users Saved
This is an estimate we can't know exactly.
But we do know that 23 per cent of all ruined clincher
tires have been rim-cut. That ruin is impossible with
Goodyear No-Rim-Cut tires.
And No-Rim-Cut tires are 109 oversize, That means
10 more air 10 added carrying capacity. That, with
the averaze car, adds 25 to the tire mileage.

If our estimate is rieht, this patented tire has saved

at au enormous rate. For No-Rim-Cut tires now outsell
