Aluminum Now Used

"Automobile manufacturing I no longer
a question of making a dependable motor
a." says Elmer Apperson, president of
Apperson Brothers' Automobile company.
"From now on, makers are utilising every
effort, and doing everything In their
power, to make a car that will be eco
nomical la operating expense. In these
days, the prospective purchaser Invari
ably asks, "How many miles on a gallon
f gasoline" and "is the car golnn to be
expensive In the matter cf tires."
I'roper we'ght Is responsible for this
marked change. Homt-ver. it must not b
understood that .this l brought about by
sacrificing trength. To secure medium

jerson four th lower and upper lalf of
th crank case, tha transmission case and
bearing caps are made of aluminum. It
w'll b seen from this that the buyer Is
now In a position to secure these expen
sive materials In a medium priced car."

his neighbors. On the return trip to the
farm he distributes barrels of flour, kegs
