Old World Authorities Refute to

' Should Bddle Rlrkenbacher, tha -famous
'lijurwall pUot or sny of tl.a other spaed
tfarooB of premier fame celebrate tha
'first raoa of 19lt by rolling too miles in
I two hours, or soma suah revolutionary
figure, tha result could be nothing mora
thaa an Amarloaa reoord. No such
thing as a world's reoord can be success
fully claimed, whan tha faat Is aooom
pUshad In tha United BUtea, under tha
'sanction of tha American Automobile a.s-
, This strange and anomalous condition
arises from tha fact that, with charao-
terlsUo Baropaan aloofness, tha automo
bile judiciary across tha sea rooognlsee
j no perf ormanca In America as really
Desplta tha fact that many reeent
American records axeall thooa on tha
I books of the Automobile clubs of Great
, Hrltaln and Franca, recent compilations
Of European racorda plaoldly Ignoro them
snd still refer to venerable European
(eats as world's records.
Too American Automobile aasootatlon,
(after vainly trying to secure mutual
raoognltlon which would result In real
r table of world'a rooords, baa tempor
orUy given up the battle and modestly
rafrs to all marks stabllahed under
,fts Jurisdiction as American records-
only this ana nc-t'iuig more.
One Immediate affect of this condition
1 Is to rob the endurance champion Max
well touring ear of tha tochnical right
to claim a world's title.
Tho Maxwell stock touring car
i recently computed, under American Au
itotnoblle association supervision, a run
' f 3i.Ki t miles without a motor stop.
Tho beet prior American reoord waa less
'than 13,000 miles. In Europe tha best
, prior mark was less than 17,000 miles
to the credit of the Rolls-Royce. Tat the
Maxwell can qualify merely for an
American record and the stolid Britons
will doubtless continue to regard tho
Rolls-Royce as tho world's enduraaoo
i ; ;
champion until Its record Is beatn In
tha limits of their tight little Isle.
Were reclnrocal rulea In Deration, tho
Maxwell would undoubtedly be granted
a worlda record certificate, un'ier nm
nollrv. tha American Automobile
association can, however, grant merely
American certificate of record.
Buick Cars Taken

Lao Huff, manager of tha Nebraska
Bulck Auto company, aays that notwith
standing tha fact that tha Bulck Motor
company lias Increased Its output to
M.0OO cars for tho 191( selling season.
there Is still such a shortage of cars
that every Bulck dealer Is asking for all
tha cars ho can get. to be shipped at
Ordinarily tho country dealer does not

fore spring, but they are after every car
load that reaches Omaha at this time.
Tha local branch at this time last year
had about 800 cars in tha warehouso. Now
they havo only enough In tha rear of
their showroom for Immediate retail de
liveries. Thlrtjr-flvo carloads, or HO D-e-46
Bulcks will reach Omaha this week and
every car Is to bo dlvortad to soma coun
try dealer.
Tha local branch has many ordera on
hand for retail delivery in tha spring.
Tho ovar-lnoroaslng demand for Bulck
cars Is proof of tha faot that tha publlo
has faith In tha Buiok Motto: "When
better automobiles aro built Bulck will
build them."
The O. W. Francis Auto company Is

Famous Studebaker Display Will
Come to Omaha Guarded by a
Pinkerton Detective.
Utmost precautions havo been taken to
lnauro tho safe transportation of tho
I2S.00O Etudebaker gold chassis around tho
circuit of cities where It is being placed
on exhibition.
As an example, 'whan the curtain waa
rung down on the Now Tork automobile
ahow, ft. J, Foumier, Cleveland agent of
the American Express company, waa on
hand to personally conduct tha precious
chassis to Clsveland. Ho rode in the
special car that carried tho chassis, being
accompanied by a Pinkerton man who la
anslgned to guard It at motor showo
where It Is scheduled to be placed on view.
As a further precaution, the chassis
was loaded on the special car light in the
Grand Central station. New Tork. Instead
of being towed over to the freight depot,
as was done with the show cars. Fw
mission was secured from the New Tork
Central officials, Inasmuch as this act set
a new precedent. i
Hxtreme measures are being taken by
the Studebaker corporation to prevent
this chassis, containing Sf ounces of pure
gold, from being stolen or mutilated.
Carrying heavy insurance, this record slae
piece of gold is sent from city to city by
express, never being entrusted to a
freight car. It takes Its place as the
most expensive express "package" ever
All Will Exhibit.
The Importance which this gold chasada.
has assumed Is Indicated by tho demand
from dealers, automobile show officials;
and hotel men all over the country for
permission to exhibit It in their cities.
R. T. Hodgklns, general sale manager
of the Btudobaker corporation, is being
swamped with letters and telegrams.
When the Pittsburgh auto ahow offi
cials learned that the gold chassis would
be In Boston during the week of the
Pittsburgh show, thsy postponed their
exhibit a week in order to accommodate
It. Arrangements have been made to ex
press the chassis to Pittsburgh at the
close of the Boston show.
