Convention of Subdealera Held by
the Stewart-Tooger Motor Com
pany "of Omaha.
SALES MANAGER IS PRESENT
ASSISTANT MANAGER OF THE
MAXWELL MOTOR COMPANY.
On last Tuesday the Stewart-Tooser
Motor company held a convention of the
Chalmers sub-dealers tn this territory.
The pro (tram h"nn with a business are
, lon at 10:30 a. m., which wai presided
over by Mr. Percy Owen, sales manager
ii the Chalmers Motor company, at Ie
trolt Mr. Owen talked of conditions at the
factory and of relations as they should
be between factory and sub-dealers.
Sales methods were discussed at length
and a new and broader sales policy, as
recently established by the Chalmers
Motor company, was explained by the
speaker during the oourse of the ses
sion. Mr. Owta remarked about the con
ditions in Nebraska and Western Iowa
in comparison with other parts of the
rmintrv and was julte enthusiastic in
praise of this section.
Never in the history of the Chalmers
Motor company have conditions boen so
favorable toward a record-breaking
year," continued Mr. Owen. "Our factory
has on hand orders for more cars at
present than we can ship In the next
thirty days, but with cars leaving tte
factory at the present rate our produc
tion cannot last that 'eng. Omaha, along
with other middle west cities, is threat
ened with a shortage of Chalmers cars,
even though fortified as we are with
orders at the factory. We are unable to
alter this condition working full ca
pacity every day aa we are."
Mr. J. H. W. Mackie, district super
visor, gave a very enthusiastic talk on
the model B. light six Chalmers.
At 12 o'clock the meeting was ad
journed and the visitors were given a
luncheon at the south dinner room of the
commercial club. The tublo was laid for
twenty guests and til lunohon was made
more enjoyable by the wonderful view
of Omaha given the visitors from the
Commercial club rooms.

hundreds of cars ranging in price
from $1000 to $1500.
We knew that the Chalmers people
were making a car in this class. We
knew it would be good when we
But to our impatient inquiries we
pot one answer, "We haven't tested
it hard enough yet."
Now it is here.
The Chalmers people say it has simply been
abused over in the Alleghany Mountains for
18 months and stood the racket
Hence they know what they are offering.
It is the lowest price ($1400) at which a
Chalmers car has ever been sold.
Yet it has all the Chalmers quality, and
owing to new plans of construction, a distinctly
different appearance from any other motor car.
It gets away quicker than any car we've ever
seen except a racer. It rides like a Pullman.
It is a "thoroughbred."
We feel that it paid to wait for it.
Come in and see if you don't think so too.

The High Grade Car
Is the Light Car
Remember that. Lightness requires the highest
skill in designing. It requires much aluminum, special
steels. To get strength without bulk is the acmo in car
building. Therefore the Hudson the lightest 7-Passen-gcr
Six is a matchless example of fine engineering.
Not all Light Sixes are really lljbt.
Not one la as Ufbt as Hudson in thla
class. Our rival., of course, say their
extra weUht perhapa hundreds ot
pounds Is essential.
Why Go Half Way?
Ilut It Isn't. No more than 4, ROD
pounds which Sixes used to weigh.
And to carry extra weight dally Is a
heavy tax, both on tire, and fuel.
This Is the day of Light Sixes. Msa
have definitely decided never again to
carry vast, crude, needless weight.
All leading car are built lighter.
Overwhelming demand has compelled
It. But many cars, In another year,
will be lighter still. Cars of Hudson
size must come In Hudson weight. In
the meantime, Is it wise to get a car
which has only gone half way,
The atrength of the Hudson Is be
yond any question. Remember that
12,000 of these Light Hudson, are rou
ulng. Many have run for two seasons.
All of that driving, covering 10 million
of miles, has tailed to bring oat a sin
There nover was a sturdier oar, Any
extra pound would bo a less a weak
ness, not a strength.
But It Took Four Years
Hudson Is the original Light Btz.
It took us four years to attain. Hun
dreds of parts war re-designed by
Howard B. Coffin, a ganlua In design
ing. That Is wby Hudson weighs tot
t,870 pounds. That U wty It shows
It win be yonr tint eholoa In tha

Hudsons are In tremendous damand In

we can make prompt dellrery.
