' Po numerous have been the requests of

torium which have been stored In the
basement will be removed ao as to allow
more apace for display. This year the
apaoe to be allowed to each company will
be less than In previous years and there
will be more cars on display.
During the last six years the decorating
of the Auditorium has been the same.
This year the board of directors have
arranged to have the building decorated

Test for Tire.
The road conditions on the GUdden

tires owing to the large amount of new

through which the car was forced to
pass, All of these fords were of the rock

of motor speed, men have beMi cuilsrlins;
their memories ami frisking the records

which three motor cars of the same make,
comprising an entire team, finished a big

at the finish. They have all given It up.
The performance of the 1C-M-K "30 s"
driven, respectively, by Witt, Kvans and
Towen Is absolutely unique in the annnls
of road racing and approached only by
the grand prise performance of the Hens,
which last year won first and second,
though falling to cop the third position.
Accurate record was kept of the fuel
and oil consumption of the cars. The
170 miles of speeding were covered on an
lavrrsge of nine gallons of gasoline and

A car that gives yon a tbMlly new idea of
what yon ought toTget for $900
A new and larger Hupmobile which immediately thrusts upon your attention a score of tangible superiorities which set it in a class apart from cars of its price.
A five-passenger Touring Car for $900 which rejects every characteristic of commonplace construction ; and makes clear its invasion of the field above that price ;
by points of difference and departure which no motorist can mistake.
Evolved out of the experience which has built thousands of the Hupmobile Runabout the quality car today, as it always has been, of the runabout class.
Designed by E. A. Nelson, Chief Engineer of the Hupp Motor Car Company, since its inception and designer of the original Hupmobile Runabout. To him
and the skilled shop organization which he has continuously maintained, we owe the inimitable lines, the marked simplicity, the efficiency and the high
quality of workmanship incorporated in the Runabout

Some of the points which make the price unprecedented
The three chief characteristics of the mew Hupmobile
are Durability, Efficiency, and Ability.
Bv durability we mean that we believe that there are

ine Hupmobile cranksiialt has three large mam bearings,
more years of quiet, competent service, and a greater
capacity for withstanding hard knocks in this Car
than have ever before been incorporated in a car at
any figure near this price because every part is
made of good material and more than amply strong
for a car of this size and weight.
By efficiency, we mean lower oiland gasoline consump
tion : a lesser tire cost ; and a smaller outlay for repairs.
By ability, we mean 60 more pulling power for moun
tain work and heavy roads; 4 to 50 miles of speed
at any time and all times; and ability to throttle in
stantly to a wajking gait or to pick up quickly with
out feeling the weight of the car.
These latter advantages are due in large measure, of
course, to the motor, one of the first of the small
bore, long-stroke type peculiar to the finest foreign
cars, ever manufactured in this country.

The valves all on one side are enclosed by a pressed
steel cover, which keeps oil in and dirt out ; and because
dirt is kept out, the valves remain noiseless, show mini
mum wear and require minimum adjustment
Many a car of 50 to 60 horsepower carries a clutch no
larger than the clutch of the new Hupmobile. Multiple
disc type, with 13-inch discs gives positive action and
starts the car smoothly and easily.
Transmission gears are amply large for a 40 horsepower
car; run slowly and are quiet at all speeds.
This excess strength extends also to the full-floating
rear axle large and strong enough for a seven
passenger car. The gears have an unusually large
number of teeth Another precaution against wear
and the possibility of trouble.
Oil is fed to all parts and bearings of the unit power
plant under pressure the flywheel runs in oil and its
centrifugal force takes the place of a pump. One
kind of oil is used for engine, clutch and transmission
instead of oil and grease, and it circulates and lubri

Body and chassis design embody a low center of grav

spring is, the patented Hupmobile cross type; the
upholstering is deep and soft all features that add
to the comfort of those in the car.
