non-skid tires on rear wheels.
To Insure prompt deliveries In greater
quantltlea than ever befor Important ad
ditions have been made to the Studebaker
plants In Detroit and South Hend.
Ixcal Studebaker representatlvea have
received formal notification of the de
ta'la of the new Ptudebaker "four" and
"six cars. In addition to many Improve
ments In design the news Is of especial
interest as It Involves a radically lower
scale of prices.
Reduced weight, greater roominess,
more powerful motors, Tlmken bearings,
full floating rear axle, crowned fenders,
non-skid tires on rear, Wagner's separate
unit starting and lighting, dimming head
lights, switch locking device, hot Jacketed
carburetor, one-man type top, overslie
tires, and attractive lines are other points
of the announcement.
Additional Importance attaches to the
announcement as it contained tha first
intimation that the Btudcbaker corpora
tion has added to its line two new body
types a five-pasenger "si" and a three
passcngcr "four roadster.
The five-passenger "six" Is listed at
tl,3S6 and the seven-passenger "six" at
11,43). Instead of 11,675 as during the past
The new three-paascnger roadster Is the
most striking departure irom the con
ventional motor car design. The body la
unusually wide, seating three persons
comfortably. That part of the seat re
served for the driver projects forward
about four Inches. The rear deck, which
is covered with aluminum, provides plenty
of space for a trunk or other oaggage.
This new model sells at $985, which Is the
same as the figure placed on the stand
ard five-passenger "four" touring.
Without Increasing the bore or stroke
of either the four or six-cylinder motor
Studebaker engineers have practically
added about 15 per cent to the power of
each. This was done by reducing the
weight of the cars . without sacrificing
strength, and by the use of larger valves,

piston rings and lighter pistons and con

The Car with the
Motor car slogans came Into existence
with the Jlrst automobile placed on the
market and have been coined pretty fre
quently since. "No hill too steep; no sand
too deep," "The choice .of men who
know," "Ask the man who owns one,"
"Car with a conscience," "Car of the
American family," are all by-words that
convey the name of some particular car
to most of us.

Car company of Cleveland "The car with

placing the newest slogan In as many dlf

"Chandler owners pounces the unique
distinction of being responsible for the
selection of the new sIokoii," says F. C.
Chandler, president of the company
manufacturing the Chandler lightweight
"Our sales department first called my
attention to the great number of letter
received from Chandler owners referring
to the "marvelous motor" in their cars
These letters came from widely separated
sections of the country and to any one
reading over twenty or thirty of them,
the recurrence of the same phrase seemed
more than a coincidence. Furthermore,
the fact that the Chandler six motor is
of our own design and manufacture and
not a stock motor manufactured outside,
led us to adopt the slogan suggested by

Profit Sharing is
Proving Great Big
Card for the Ford
A perfect avalanche of orders ha
swept down upon the local branch of the
Ford Motor company since the announce
ment of the new prices and profit-sharing
plan to Include purchasers of Ford cars.
More retail sales were made to local
buyers the first five dys of the month
this year than were made during the
whole month of August last year.
Mr. Gould, manager of the Omaha
branch, says that the profit-sharing plan
has met with a corresponding response
all over the country and that there Is no
question but that the 300,000 car produc
tion, on which the profit-sharing plan is
based, will be greatly exceeded. That
the Important question now Is, whether
the Ford factory. Immense as It Is, will
be able to supply the demand for cars.
Among recent purchasers of Ford cars
are: Fairmont Creamery company. Kim

Years of Waiting

It. Badford, vice president and general
manager of the Cartercar company this
week. "1 have a friend In Topeka, Kan.,
who wrote me a letter a few Oaya ago
that you ought to read. No wonder that
fanners are buying automobiles and vlc
trolaa and electric washing machine. I
was brought up on a farm myself and I
know whnt these things mean."
Mr. Radford turm-d to his files and the
letter he produced read as follows:

"And as for mo," said Mr. Radford,
"I'm mighty glad the farmer Is having

"The new Oakland for 191R Is surely

Oakland Motor Car company, at the close
of the annual convention of Oakland

Jude the SAXON by What It Is Doing
The picture above represents the Saxon in a new dress, with a new
color scheme elegant dark bluo body and black running gear,
with running boards, headlights in front gasoline filler cap ex
tending through cowl, hinged bonnet and 38 other detail refinements.
WHAT you want to know about the
Saxon car is what it will do
.under the conditions in which you
would use it.
The best answer is to be found in
'what the Saxon it doing under all
sorts of conditions all over the coun
try. Over fi.000 Saxons are now in use iu
owners' hands. Everywhere they are
making good just as they are mak
ing good here in our own community
and surrounding territory.
Makes Good in Hands of
The test of owners' use is the hard
est test to which any car can be put.
Here are some of the things that own
ers say: "No road too difficult for
the Saxon." "Wouldn't trade my
Saxon for anything on four wheels
anywhere near the price." "I drive
my Saxon right over places where
otlier cars balk." "It .costs me 10
cents a day to run it." "Works like a
$3,000 car." "248 miles on seven gal
lons of gas." "Will do anything any
other car will do and a little bit
more," etc., etc.
Record of 27, 30, 33 and even 35
miles to the gallon of gasoline are
common. Tire cost is amazingly low;
repair cost practically nothing.
Wonderful Records in Public Tests
In different public tests the Saxon
has also proved its staunchness and its

a 30-day transcontinental trip from New York
to San Francisco 3,389 miles averaging 30
miles to the gallon.
The same car, from April 8 to Iay 8, ran
135 miles a day for 30 consecutive days
4,050 miles averaging 30 miles to the gal
lon and 160 miles per quart of oil, covering
the entire distance on the original set of tires.
In 60 days this car covered nearly 8,000 miles,
as far as the average owner drives In two
100 Saxon cars In as many towns all over
the country made non-stop runs of ZOO miles
each, averaging 34.53 miles per gallon less
than one-half cent per mile for fuel.
Secret of Wonderful Record
These remarkable feats are only a few of
the records being made every day In all parts
of tha country by the thousands of Saxon cars
now In uue. Thus the Saxon has proved con
clusively both In public tests and owners' use
that it will average greater mileage dally,
day in and day out, at less cost than any other
car In the world.
It Is easy to understand why these per
formances are possible, wheu you consider
the high quality of materials used In Saxon
cars, the standard features embodied, the
care employed in manufacture, and thorough
teHting in the factory and In the road tests,
the logical, scientific design, and the sturdy

A New Regal Ride

It's the old story of "the proof of the pudding."
You may have a pretty well-defined idea of what your car ought to be.
You won't realize what It really can be until you've seen and ridden in
the new Regal.
Plenty of room for five people; plenty of power to take them anywhere
with ease and a car that will stand comparison for looks with
any car at any price.
The new Regal is the car you've hoped to own, at a price you can
afford to pay.
