OnA of the most ImDortnnt nnnounnm
tnents that has yet come from the execu
tive offices ot the American Automobile
association Is the statement tom Man
ager Robert liruce of the touring "bureau
that the development ot nil possible trans
continental highway routes will bo con
tinued this summer 1n even more strenu
ous fashion than last year, when three
new trails across the continent were sur
veyed in the Pathfinder "W ot Indian
apolis, a 13,000-mllo road survey In 147
j The same' Identical Pathfinder Car that
Vaa selected for official pathflhdlng by
the American Automobile association and
United States government office of pub
lic roads, and which originally started
Irom New York June 11, J912, on Its record
trail blazing trip, will be used this year
to survey three more transcontinental
routes for 1913.
The 1913 program calls for supplement
ary data to bo gathered on a 12,000-mlle
survey that will dovetail closely Into the
work already done In the Pathfinder that
six transcontinental highways will be
available for tourists at the end of the
i This network of transcontinental routes
has been before tho American Automobile
association for tho last half dozen years
and when completed transcontinental de
velopment will have reached Its height
The data will be gathered as in former
years- by A. U Westgard, official Ameri
can Automobile association representa
tive. Accompanied tor Westward.
In order to officially sanction the
bosster tour of Indiana automobile manu
fatcurers from Indianapolis to the pa
clflo coast, tho American Automobile as
sociation has consented to have Mr.
(Westgard arrange his routing so as to
be In Indianapolis for tne atari oi me
Hoosler tour and to continue with the
mntnr crtravan all the way across the
country to the coast. Having covered
this ground numerous times In the past,
Mr. Westgard will be invaluable to the
tourists both In tho selection of tho most
energetic cities and' towns through which
Ao pass and In breaking virgin ground
for the lamous Flsher-Alllson highway
ln the far west.
The Pathfinder "W will leave New
Tork about June 1 for Indianapolis, by
way of Buffalo, Detroit, Chicago, Des
Moines, Kansas City, looping back to
the Hoosler capital In time for the official
start of the tour, July 1.
After the finish at San Francisco, the
Pathfinder will continue on Its long trail,
leaving the Hoosler tourists to disband
and return home by rail. A new sur
vey will be made of the famous Trail to
Bunset. This routing includes a number
of detours In and around Lower Cali
fornia, New Mexico. Arizona. Texas and
Arkansas, then back to New York on a
straight lino making the first official
survey ot a southern transcontinental
route. , . ,,,
While in the west, the Pathfinder will
bo used to link the Midland trail with the
Northwest trail via Bait Lake City and
Seattle and also will link the Glacier
National park In Montana with the Yel
lowstone National park in Wyoming.
The object of these tours is to give
transcontinental travelers accurate data
for any long-distance tour that may be
The Persistent and Judicious Use of

8o large has been the demand for Ford
cars this year the factory has been un
able to keep up with the domand and
deliveries will be suspended after May 14,
according to Manager Gould of the local
branch. Whllo the company has tripled
Its output, over last year the demand has
equally Increased. There were TS.000 cars
manufactured by the Ford people last
year. These were all In the hands of
tho retail trade by June 14, when further
deliveries were Impossible. This year
200,000 cars will be put on the market and
deliveries will cease a month earlier than
last year. Tho Ford factory Is turning
out on an average 1,000 cars each day.
Double shifts are employed.
It Is little wonder the factory cannot
keep up with the demand, when tho
sales by the Omaha branch In one week
Is considered. Fourteen cars were sold
Tuesday by the branch salesmen.
The E. R. Wilson Automobile company
Is working day and night selling and
delivering cars to the city and country

pany stooked with, cars and so far have
"Never before has tho automobile sea
son opened with such a rush," Mr. Wil
son stated- "We have sold more cars
this spring than any previous season.
And the sales are Increasing every
week. Tho Studebaker cars are espe
cially In demand. This line furnishes
the average buyer with the right car
at the right price." The following sales
made by the company last week bears
out Mr. Wilson's statement: V. T.
Parker, Florence, a Lexington touring
car; Henry D. Frankfurt of the Hasting
& Heyden Real Estato company, a
Studebaker; W. W. Sherwood of the
Sherwood Electrical company, a Stude
baker "20!" Dr. W. F. MUroy, a Stude
baker "3!;" Sol Brodkey, a Studebaker
"38;" R. B. Forbes, a Studebaker "SS;"

I E. Doty, well known along the
automobile row, who Is now established
In R. R. Kimball's former place of busi

much success with the city and rural
trade and Mr. Doty anticipates a large
demand for these machines this season.
So far tho sales have greatly exceeded

The new Studebaker "25" roadster wilt

on tho strccts-of Omnha. It Is tho latent
thing In a medium sized two-passenger
car and great attention has been paid to
details In its construction. Manager

baker company Is of the opinion that It
will prove more popular than the Stude
baker "20" that was In such domand last
T. V. Graves, local manager of tho
Goodyear Tire and Rubber company, Is
up to his old tricks of smashing former
records for sales ot accessories In the
city and territory.

ho territory if sales can be taken as
Tho police department Is not the only
concern using Inter-Stato cars. However,
the department has tested out this car
and found It not wanting In any particu
lar. Magnificently made and elaborately
upholstered tho Studebaker "S5" Sedan
enclosed car Is a beautiful piece of auto
craft. The car Is on display In the sales
rooms of the Omaha branch and Is prov
ing of great tnterest to motorists. It Is
electrle-llghted and equipped with a self
starter. The carburetor can bo adjusted
by the chauffeur without leaving the car
and an oil gauge is near the speedometer
which keeps tho chauffeur in touch with
the oil In the tank.
