Auto Men Fighting
Tl e National Automobile Chamber of
Commerce reports complaints from the
railroads on the use of box ears for
storage purposes and on dealers refus
ing to unload cars promptly.
The following three paragraphs arc
quoted from a letter by Alfred Reeves to
the N. A. C. of C:
"Members will recall our previous ad
vices to the effect that railroads de
sired to apply a special demurrage rate
of $8 per day on automobile shipments
and that we had Induced thorn to forego
this move on the assurance that we
would undertake to correct the difficulty
within the trade.
"Notwithstanding the progress made
and the co-operation of many members
and dealers, the railroads continue to
confront us with extensive delays and
they feel that our campaign to stop the
use of automobile cars for storage pur
poses has failed. The proposition for a
special Increased demurrage charge to
force the unloading of cars Is likely to
be brought up again In consequence of

our members to express their views as

OMAHA HAY MARKET

be opened and ready for operation within
a few weeks or a month. The special
committee of the Commercial club

satisfactory plans have been worked out.
A few days ago the committee met
jointly with ten of the largest hay deal
era In the city. Plans and methods rela
tive to the operation of Omaha's hay
market were discussed. This was char
acterised as a very successful meeting,
since hay men and the club's committee
are In accord on all joints, and though
no details are yet given out It Is con
fidently expected that Omaha will get
Itself on the map as a real hay market

You Must Place Your Order Nov If
You Want "Immediate Delivery"
Once again, we must urge you to act quickly in
placing your order for a Paige Fairfield seven
Don't delay. Don't put the matter off one day longer
than is absolutely necessary if you would avoid
disappointment later on.
Already the factory is flooded with orders for this
wonderfully popular model.
Despite the fact Uiat our manufacturing facilities
have been tripled, we are facing an immediate
shortage of Fairfields, and the spring retail
season is only a few weeks off.
Just stop for a minute and consider the significance
- of the statement when we tell you that, bo far
in 1916, we have marketed .more seven passen
ger cars than any other '.manufacturer in our
price class. . -
Also, ponder over the fact that this month we shall
ship approximately 25 solid train loads of the
Fairfield model exclusively.
Last year, you will remember, there was a long
Paige "waiting list"
Hundreds of people delayed their purchases until
the last minute and were then compelled to
. accept sixty and ninety days delivery or com
promise on a "second best."
Bo, be fair to yourself. Protect your own good in
terests. Go to the Paige dealer place a cash
deposit in his hands and make sure that you
will receive the car of your choice.
It is by no means our purpose to "stampede" motor
car buyers into early or ill-advised purchases,
but we know that a shortage is coming and of
fer this information in a sincerely helpful spirit.
And now let us say a word about the car itself.
First and foremost, we want to remind you that the
Paige Fairfield "Six-46" is a tried and proven
When you buy a Paige "Six-46" today, you are
buying a car that has passed the experimental
stage. You are buying a car of known quality
In a word, the "Six-46" is an eminently tafe auto
It is a good car not merely because we say so
but because its owners have conclusively estab
lished this goodness in the gruelling tests of
more than a year's actual road work.
Here, then, is one substantial reason for the over
whelming demand which the "Six-46" enjoys.
And there is anothex1 a basic reason which has
made this record possible.
Time and time again, we have stated our policy of
scrupulously avoiding any expression in Paige
advertising which might savor of exaggeration
or misrepresentation. We make an honest pro
duct and we propose to sell it in an honest way.
But, facts are facts, and we boldly and fearlessly
claim that the Paige Fairfield "Six-46" repre
sents more actual dollar-for-dollar value than
any other motor car on the market.
If this appears to be a broad statement we invite
you to check us up by inspecting the car, rid-:
ing in it, and conducting any comparative in
vestigation which you may care to make.
Understand, we do not claim to make the only good
motor car, nor do we ask you to believe that
' our Fairfield is the best American make.
But we do most emphatically insist that the "Six
46" offers a greater value for its price $1,295
than any other automobile produced in this
rminfrv nr nrirnnrJ
Furthermore, you will heartily agree with us i
you will permit the Paige Dealer to give yoi
vuv uiuiuun uemonsiraiion just one.
But, please don't forget you must act quickly. Get
your order in now before it is too late.
