at Exposition with Other
SKELETON COWL ON ' CHASSIS
"A Haynea Light Blx Mode) JO chassis

of the Nebraska Haynea Auto Pdlei com
pany, distributor of AmrrWs first car.
"The rhsaals will be identical with the
one exhibited at the New Tork and Chi
cago automobile ahowe. A akeleton cowl
la fitted to the chassis to carry the con
trol Instruments In auch a manner that
their connection! with the various unite
may be aeen at a glance. While the

emphaHlied by nickel plating, In order to
rive the exhibition an educational value
The latest development of the automo
bile Industry are embodied In the design
of the Hnynes I.lnht Sis chassis. Ita
simplicity and compactness will offer a
great contrast to exhibits of former year
"The palace of transportation contains
exhibits of all means of conveyances for
travel under the water, on the water, on
land and In the air, but the automobile
section l expected to be the most exten
sive division. The automobile booth,
which occupy the entire eastern half of
the building, will be uniform In design
and there will be no railing or parti
tions between exhibits. The decoration of
the automobile section comprises some
very appropriate panoramas, that, though
serving as mural decorations, are In real
ity topographical maps.
'The Lincoln highway Is shown In this
manner on a scale of about ten mites to
the foot, so aa to form one gigantic pano
rama over 350 feet In length. All colon
of the varioua aectlona of the country
through which the highway pasaea are
accurately represented. Other sections of
the United States are, exactly reproduced
In the form of these maps that give the
Impression of looking over vast areas.
'Linoleum la used as floor covering
'throughout the automobile section. The
main north and south alnte passes through
Italian pergolas, and each exhibit will be
Indicated by large vaaea at the four cor
nera. The Haynea trade name will ap
pear on the bowl of each vase marking
the Haynea exhibit"
To American Boy
"Every red-blooded American youth
loves motor cars and studies them," says
Mr. Clark of the Noyea Auto company
Many can give their elders valuable
points on both construction and operation.
"Most of them know every car In the
neighborhood, who made It and how well
It runs. They read every automobile ad
vertisement Theyaend for catalogues
and never skip a page or specification
They are veritable mines of pertinent In
formation that 'dad' never had the leis
ure or the opportunity to get. la It any
wonder they are consulted when a new
car Is the topic T
"In the sale of an automobile there la,
of course, no shadow of question regard
ing the powerful bearing exercised by the
buyer's wife, sister or 'Intended.' If the
car does not appeal to her sense of beauty,
comfort, convenience and refinement, the
strong mechanical arguments that have
won the 'mere male' will prove of little
"And the boy la an Influence which to
my mind la a very close second to that
of the woman. He makes or breaks thou
sands of sales every year.
"The automobile manufacturer for
tunate enough to get the ear and the
favor of a few thousand boys has ac
quired an auxiliary sales force that he
may well cultivate to say nothing of a
goodly percentage who themselves will
be buyers In the future.
"Bo the boys 'can have our expensive
catalogues and should have our time If
there la anything they want to know
about that'a what we try to Impress on
very Klasvl-Kar dealer and salesman."

"That old wheeze about carrying coals
to Newcastle was all right In Its time,"

"The tremendous Inrush of order that

other of the thousands with which the
dialers have burned up the wires, waa
that one from our Detroit dealer, auylng.

"We have always been proud of the
fact that Reo sella more cara In the

"The tremendous political Influence ex

In retarding the sudden and great de
velopment of the 'Jitney bus,' but It will
never be able to suppress that new and
popular means of transportation," de
clared John N. Willys, president of the
Wlllys-Overland company. In the course
of an Interview on the "Jitney" situation
at his winter home In Pasadena. ri
8lnce arriving In California, Mr. Willys

"The first 1315 Detroiter were equipped
with electric cigar lighters as an experi

apparatus conslsU of a length of flexible
steel tubing enclosing the two wires that

driver to 'light up' without resorting to
the danger of llRhtlng a match, or stop
