' "The chancei are about even that tha
armon'i world records m ill sund In tha
isecond International aweepnakea race at
;tha Indianapolis speedway on the 30th."
iU tha opinion of Ray liarroun. driver
,of the Marmon "H asp." last year's wln
iner. as advanced at tha Xortiyke at
Marmon factory yesterday.
"It is practically op to the weather
) man . no matter what power the cars are
'capable of developing or what speed they
intake in practice.
"Last year, when the Marmon -Wasp'
set the records of . miles jn jjj mnutoii
H seconds, and oW miles in . minutes,
seconds at an average of TIH miles per
lour, tha weather was ideal.
. "This year, if It Is just a trifle hotter
on the brick speed track It means more
itlres will be burnt up, and tire changea
take time.
"A wind of any reasonable velocity Is
also going to be a serious factor for the
record brekrs'to contend with,
i "TlWre are a good many thing to con
sider when you start out to average
yearly seventy-five miles per hour for
wver sis hours continuously and the
easnccs against you Increase for every
'mile you draw nearer to the 500 mark.
, "Another point about !ast year's rscs
fwMca is most Interesting is thst tha
Harmon did the last 100 miles in faster
Uma than any other century in the race.
Wlien a car can stand the pace and forge
to the front In M miles and then m nn
nd lead the race at M and then make
It be last hundred at an even higher speed
(without an adjustment everr condition
(including tha weather, must be right"
! Tha Santa Monica road race, which was
;won by a car with MO cubic inches piston
displacement, caused many motorists to
taunt some authority on motor cars and
learn just what "piston displacement"
(means. A canvas along automobile row
.proved that there la a shocking lack of
Knowledge on this particular subject. Tha
1 common Impression was that It la tha else
bf the cylinders. This Is not so, It Is the
.area times the length of the stroke of
she piston in the cylinder times the num.
iber of cylinders. In other words, the
Icublcal contents of the cylinder between
the piston at Its highest point and at Its
'lowest point.
Therefore the greater tha distance be
tween the highest and lowest point of tha
piston's stroke, the greater the number
of cubic Inches of gas, resulting In a
greater amount of power.

Auto Development
and the Speed Bug
With the development of the automobile
came the development of the "speed bug."
It has Inoculated many an Individual
whose sanity In other respects never has
been questioned.
After all la said and done, what fea
ture of the every day factory product Is
proved by a maker who Bends Into a reel
a specially built car, more closely resemb
ling a creature of the dlnosaurua age
thaa tha present day car. possessing
power four times as great as Is needed
to dlmb the steepest of the Alps or tne
Andes and on Its day of speed achieve
ment endangers the life end limbs at
least of Its pilot and mechanician? .
Races have long since been tabooed by
the builders of such cars as the Packard
and Mitchell, so that the popularity of
these machines csn in no way be attrib
uted to race demonstration qualities.

Racing is Sure Way
to Test Out Autos
"There Is another side to raring quite
as Important as the trophies and pub
licity that come 'to the winner. In the
testing of the various parts of a car to
prove their strength and efficiency." say
Mr. H. H. R ce, sales manager of Kordyke
& Marmon Co.
"Road racing, track racing and partici
pation In various reliability tours, all
play Important, though different parts In
the testing of a car. Let the maker con
fine his attention to only one department
of the sport, and his product Is certain to
develop unevenly. It lias been our policy,
in the Marmon factory, to eater every
sort of competition by which we believe
we may be helped In the development of
the Marmon car. and the fact that the
are stand the test In the various con
tests shows hat the plan is a good one."
Metal bodies versus wood bodies Is a
prolific source of argument and conten
tion among the makera ot motor can.
While it "is true that many cars sre
built with metal bodies, some ot the
manufacturers are swearing by wood, and
offer a number of convincing arguments
why Is should be employed in preference
to any other material.
One of the principal arguments against
tha use of metal Is the fsct that, unless
It Is employed In small panels, there Is
a good chance for the finish to crack and
drop oft at the and of the winter season.
The explanation Is that metal la of
course, subject to contraction aod ex
pansion according to the changes of tem
perature. When there Is a difference ot
many degrees the paint cracks In conse
quence of the contraction.
Among the well known manufacturers
of high grade cars who are using wood
fur their bodies Is the Jackson Automobile
company, of Jackson. Mich. I'nusual
care is employed In the manufacture ot
the Jackson wood body, every opera I to a
of which is carried on within the plsnt
This company has the distinct advantage
in that the men employed In making the
bodies are experts of long training and
experience In carriage work.

You Want the Best
Not the Cheapest
Don't be alarmed if somebody tells you you can boy aa
automobile for less money than the T7S0 Studebaker -Flanders
"10." You can, but you better not. The Flanders "20" cor
responds point by point with the beat and highest priced cart
sold. Cheaper cars at every vital point arc built on ideas
long ago discarded for good cars. Don't take our word for it.
Make comparisons and are.
The Studebaker-Flsnders "20" it a marvel a high trade
racdern car at a low price. If you pay lest, you buy much
less. And the cheaper car today will cost you far more in the
long run. The competing car isn't sold which the Studebaker
Corporation, the greatest automobile manufacturers in the
world, couldn't reproduce for less money ; but we won't build
cheap car, because the name "Studebaker" meant the best
for your money.
. If you aro content with a car that runt today and diet
' tomorrow, don't buy the $750 Flanders "20." It will wear
. for years. . Remember this the Srudebaker-Flandert "20"
will outwear t to t any other car under (1100 and give you
double satisfaction, confidence and comfort into tht bargain.

I Mark that word season 's. 1

the stronger the tire the longer its
life, and the lower its per-mile cost.
And it ought not to be difficult
for you to believe that four im

pVERY automobile driver, maker, owner, or agent, knows that a
used car tells more about material and miking than is ever told by a new car.
If you want to know what a staunch car the Mitchell is, take a ride in one that
has seen hard service; a Mitchell.6 cylinder, 48 H. P. car, that cost new $1750.
Look it over; listen to the motorLJun it slowly; then 'pick up" quickly.
It may outwardly show lots of wear; but you'll find the ritals sound; you'll tee that the engine, trans
mission, axles, steering grir the things that mean service and safety are all right. You'll appreciate
the comfort of the 125-inch wheel base; it doe nuke a lot of difference.
Mitchell cars ire built for the man who cant afford to make a m'utake. Compare the
looks with new cars, compare the service with used cars, and the Mitchell wins.
