Now the Reigning Tires
Some 200,000 motor car owners have adopted
this patent tire.
They have used to date 1,250,000. They are
using now nearly 100,000 monthly.
No-Rim-Cut tires now far outsell any other tire
in the world. And the demand has multiplied twelve
times over in three years.
That is overwhelming endorsement
Don't you think this tire worth trying?
Average Saving, 48 Per Cent
The 10 per cent oversize, under
average conditions, adds 25 per
cent to the tire mileage.
The No-Rim-Cut feature makes
an average saving of 23 per Cent.
For statistics show that 23 per cent
of all ruined old-type tires are
Then think of the troubles saved
the worry of rim-cutting the
blow-outs due to overloading.
Do you wonder men are flocking
to these patent tires?
A Sudden Fame
These tires have jumped in the
past three years from obscurity to
From a minor place they have
suddenly come to the topmost
place in Tiredora.
But this, remember, is our 13th
year. , We spent a decade in per
fecting these tires before motorists
found them out.
The success of these tires is due
to endless tests, ,rnade on testing
machines in our factory.
Some 240 fabrics and formulas
were tried and discarded, because
we found something better.
We had to first make the best
tires in the world, before we out
. sold the world.
If you will consult men who use
these tires you are bound to use
them, too. Saving half on tire bills
means too much to miss.

13 year of tire making is filled

In producing the Packard "4S" for 1913,
the Packard Motor Car company has
bettered Its established Six with logical
improvements based on fourteen years
of engineering success. Before the first
demonstrator was delivered a few days
ago, approximately 450 orders for the
new model had been booked by Pack
The chassis Is typical Packard con
struction, the distinctive type showing
refinements and change In Una with the
policy of sustained development from
year to year. Putting the gasoline tank
on the rear has made it possible to clear
the running boards, the tool box going
under the front seat and the battery box
being located under the body.
A sweeping body curve at the back,
similar to the lines of the Packard
limousine,, has given the open bodies a
more roomy rear seat, the comfort of
which is enchanced by a new design of
three-quarter elliptic springs. The wheel
base of the touring car has been
lengthened from 133 inches to 139 inches.
Perhaps the most important mechanical
change Is an auxiliary oiling system
which feeds direct to the cylinder walls
when the throttle reaches about a one
third opening. The oiling efficiency of
the motor is Increased about five times,
while the oil consumption la cut down to
a surprising degree.
A Bljur generator furnishes electric
current for headlights and usual power.
All cars are equipped with the Disco
priming device for use when the motor

Makes Exhibit Here
There was a time when the automobile
was a thing of mystery. Up to a few
years ago manufacturers tried to make
the motor car mysterious. Mouth-fljllng
technical statements of mechanical prin
ciples were used to describe the internal
workings of a car. The public was sup
posed to take, what was offered, and
find out how it was built when the nec
essity arose for taking things apart.
When Hugh Chalmers left a position
with a salary of $72,000 a year to go Into
business for himself and came Into the
automobile Industry he started to do
unique things. In the first place he built
a real automobile for $1,600 the first
that had ever been offlered at that
price. In the second place, he began
educating the public on motor car con
struction. Mr. Chalmers said the buyer
of motor ears had a perfect right to
see the wheels go 'round, and so he
built cutout chesses shewing every work
ing part and devised other educational
features which were sent about the
And now the Chalmers company has
gone a step further and sent out parts
exhibits, showing how the moving parts
of a motor car are built; how they are
tested, and of what materials they are
Most people don't realize that a good
motor car Is just as finely built as a
good watch. The workmanship la as
accurate as human skill and mechanical
ingenuity can make it.
The Chalmers exhibit, which is to be
shown in the show room of H. E. Fred
rlckson Automobile company, takes the
spectator inside the Chalmers factory.
If the Chalmers cutout chasses showed
the public how the wheels went around
In a motor car, this exhibit shows how
the wheels go around In one of the
largest automobile factories in the country.
The strike of the freight handlers at
Chicago is still hampering the shipments
ef automobiles to Omaha, and a continual
demand for mora machines is being matte
by the local dealers. Every dealer in
Omaha has been selling cars on probable
shipments. Soma concerns have had ol
der In for carload shipments for over
two weeks and have not yet recehtd
the cars, although they have been ready
at the factory for some time. Many ship,
ments are now being made via St. Louis,
Instead of Chicago, and one or two com

The Auburn company is having rom
trouble getting enough cars to fill the
orders they have been receiving lately.
They delivered but two cars last week,
although their sales were far In excess.
One machine went to South Omaha thd
the other to Memphis, Neb.
The Omaha office of the Nebraska
Buick company last month sold lis cars
off the local floor. It was the largest
single month's sate ever made In the
Omaha office. All the cars went into chts
territory. From all prospects the prusfcnt
month will exceed the sal? of last nrnth
if the present rush of business keeps up.
L. A. Keller, manager of the Omaha
branch of the Studebaker corporation, IS
visiting all th branches in this terri
tory this week. He is traveling in an
K. M. F. SO toumg car. The territory
covers all the eastern part it Nebraska
and part of Iowa. He left on the trip
last Wednesday and Is expect sd to arrive
home again tomorrow.
The Wyoming Highway association has
wired to H. E. Fredrlckson asking him
to bring the Omaha Good Roads Boosters
to Elk Mountain, Wyo., while they are
sojourning in that state on the third fitted
roads trip. The invitation announces
tp&t'one' great time will be given the
boosters and Mr. Fredrlckson has de
cided to add this town to his list.
NEW ERA APPEARS IN THE
One of the Indications of a big change
In the movement of the automobile in
5ustry is the reorganization of the sales
end of the Studebaker corporation. The
Studebakers have a sixty-year perspec
tlve In the wagon Industry and since
their entry Into the automobile field
have held a manufacturing pace that has
made automobile history.
According to Clement Studebaker, Jr.,
first vice president of the corporation.
times are ripe for changes.
"The automobile business," said Mr.
Studebaker. "can't be run in the future
as it has In the past. The automobile is
no longer an experiment, a novelty or
a toy. It Is an Immensely important
mechanical feature of our natural life.
The wild cat times are over. Mushroom
growths are at an end. The rush fnto
automobile manufacture, the craze for
flash and novelty, the systems of mak
ing and selling, the reckless disregard of
after service In a car, will not be tolera
ted by the car users of the future and
careful manufacturers have got to think
about the future.
PABST GIVES TROPHY
FOR MILWAUKEE RACES
At least two other International trophies
will be contested for at the Grand Prix
and Vanderbllt Cup races at Milwaukee
One of these is to be known as the
Milwaukee challenge cup, which will be
supplied by the combined business asso
ciations of that city. The second, sup
plied by a leading Milwaukee business
man, and to be of equal value with the
two leading trophies, will probably be
named the Pabst, as it Is rumored Colonel
Gustavo Pabst, head of the vast brewing
Interest by that name, Is the donor.
The challenge cup will probably be a
light car race, run simultaneously with
the Vanderbllt, while the Pabst will be
run during the Grand Prix.

What Eight Years9 Success Brings
THE Marion Motor Car Company's recent expansion is wrought
with great importance. For eight years this company has en.
joyed the undivided support of thousands of Marion owners.
Built up in the early days of the industry, by conscientious ef
fort, the inevitable expansion resulted. The capitalization has
been increased more than $1,000,000. The factory is being enlarged,
and sales and owners' service policies greatly widened in scope. The
annual output will be doubled. There is now gathered in the organiza.
tion a staff of manufacturing experts, who are very prominent in tho
Every Marion owner and dealer stands to benefit directly and at once. We have
never heard a Marion owner complain. We were never able to more than one-half
fill the demand for Marlon cars. Merit brought demand; demand brought ex
If possible, we will better the long, successful record of the serviceable, pow
erful and practical Marion cars.
