10 A THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JUNE 25, 1916. MAXWELL NON-STOP CAR STILL IN USE Jfileage of Sword-Maker How Sur passes Circumference of the Globe. IS 01 A GBEAT PUGBOIAOE The famous non-stop Maxwell, the ear that startled the automobile world last January, when It piled op a mile age of more 22,000 in forty-four dayt without atop of the motor, hu been making more fame for Itself. The ear is back in its garage at the Lord Mo tor Car company in Los Angeles, aft er an extended tour of southern Cali fornia, the Mexican border and Ari zona. Its speedometer now registers a total mileage of 30,635 miles, a dis tance surpassing the world's circum ference by more than 5,000 miles. No more splendid endorsement of Maxwell efficiency can be found than in the performance of the champion. Motor enthusiasts who figured that the non-stop hero was done after its remarkable feat of rolling up 22,000 miles without a stop, were sadly mis taken. Soldiers Drivt Car. Immediately following the record run, Charles Milter, jr., district sales man of the Maxwell Motor company, with headquarters In Los Angeles, was ordered to the wheel of the cham pion. He pointed its nose southward and the long tour began. After a triumphant trip through southern Cal ifornia, Mr. Miller drove the car into Arizona and down to the Mexican border. The non-stop ear was a fa vorite with the troops along the border. It rendered valuable service and the soldiers vied with one another in taking turns at the wheel Miller circled the entire state of Arizona and networked the interior. He climbed every mountain, plunged through every sand pull, forded every river and entered every city and vil lage in the state, so that every citizen in Arizona might have an opportunity to view the title bolder. - As e rule, the roads were of the most discouraging sort Practically all of Miller's driving was done at night, the heat of the dusty roads during the day being unbearable. Test It Severe. Although encountering the hardest going In the west, when the Maxwell returned to Los Angeles, it was in perfect condition. Not even the slight est mechanical . replacement was necessary. "No car was ever given a harder pounding," said Miller. "In spite of the difficulties encountered, rugged mountain paths, swollen streams, and blinding blast of sizzling desert sand, not once did the non-stop champion falter. Just to shew what is in it, I let it out on the way home. The last 307 miles, over poor roads for the most part, were negotiated in just fif teen hours. San Bernardino to Los Angeles, sixty-eight mites, we made in just an hour and a half. The plan of selling municipal bond it retail "ever the counter" in the of- ice of the -city treasurer has been made permanent institution in St Paul through an amendment to the city charter. . . Route of Auto Club Today to State. Fisheries The Omaha Automobile club will make an informal run to the state fisheries today informal, in that the motorists have decided not to go in one large body, but to form into groups at different times throughout the day for the drive. The runs and tours committee of the Omaha Automobile club thought best not to designate a set time for these little week-end runs, because so many of the members do not care to take the other man's dust For this reason the log and the map of the trio is given and the members can go at their leisure. The club room will be open this morn ing and the members can meet their friends there and make up a party of their own. The state fisheries trip is one of the prettiest runs around Omaha, the route taking the motorist south through Gretna and along a very beauti ful, winding highway, bor dered on each side with charming Nebraska farm scenes and occasional glimpses of the silvery Platte winding its way to a confluence of waters with the Missouri at Plsttsmouth. Picnic benches and rus tic seats are plentifully scattered over the 'shady Down Trip Via the Lincoln-Denver Highway and Millard. gRETN OMAHA AUTOMOBILE CLUB VEEK-ENO TRIP f SPBIWJFltlO p I STATE " ' " j FISHERIES Zjyi 7'," " fi've' w E (OVERVIEW PARK Pp STHfttcaTG PatHt fjr" fifmunso jj j - PAPILllON CP Ml ftlCHFlELD O fl DEMAND FOR GARS TO SHOWNO LEI OP Btndebaker Branch Manager Hake Prediction Following- Big Convention at Detroit. - EXCELLENT BEPQHTS ABE MADE That the present unprecedented de mand for automobiles will continue throughout the year instead of show ing the customary slack during the summer and late fall months was the message brought by Studebaker branch managers, who attended the semi-annual branch- managers' con vention of the Studebaker corpora tion in Detroit. The predictions made by the branch managers were based on a study of conditions in their ter ritories. Heads of branches in all parte of the country were present at the aeasions during the week, as were also the assistant branch managers, district managers and retail salei managers. Orders now on hand, the nation's prosperity and the fast swelling ranks of people who recognize the motor car as a utility and,, in many cases, a necessity rather than an expensive luxury, were given as the chief rea sons tor the prospect of a continuing demand of even larger proportions than ever before known. . This Studebaker convention was an interesting departure from the us ual conclave of its type. It was a gathering to discuss ways and means of disposing of car. President A. R. Erskine, In his address of wel come to' the visiting delegation, said: "Never before in the history of our business has a branch managers' con vention been held under happier or more promising circumstances." Many Factory Additions. According to J. G. Heaslet vice president, in charge of engineering and production, factory additions and enlargements of facilities will soon make possible a normal output of 8,000 Studebaker cars a month, and a forced output of 10,000. July 1, de spite the materials situation, it was announced, will show shipments for the preceding twelve months of more than 65,000 cars, which is approxi mately double the best previous year. ... L. J. Oilier, vice president and di rector of sales, who presided over the various sessions at the conven tion, announced that the Studebaker dealer organization has grown in two years from 2,000 to 6,500. The opening day was occupied with group conferences with the sales of ficials, followed by tours through sev eral of the plants, where an opportu nity was afforded to see the addi tions that have been made since the last convention In December. COMES TO OMAHA TO FORM COMPANY OF GARAGE OWNERS The American Association of Gar age Owners is now contemplating opening a branch office in Omaha. It is a corporation not for profit, or ganized under the laws of Illinois, owned and operated by its members, with general headquarters at Chicago.

Motorists not members of the club will be furnished' with the log and map of the trip, with road reports, if they call at the club room.- Realty Men Will Continue Their Fight On Bonds Although the state auditor has ruled that the county gracing and paving bonds for Douglas county did not pass legally, D. C Patterson, act ing for the Omaha Real Estate , ex change, expects to prosecute his suit in district court' for an injunction re straining the county commissioners from going ahead with the bond is sue. The matter was brought up at the last meeting of the Omaha Real Es tate exchange and it was decided that Patterson should not withdraw his application for an injunction which the exchange Instructed him to file a week or two ago. Mr. Patterson himself was in favor of going ahead with the injunction suit and said, "Even though the audi tor has ruled that the bonds did not carry, there is apparently nothing to prevent the county board from trying to go over his head and litho- ?:raphing the bonds and offering them or sale. This would mean a great expense to the county and a useless expense. I understand the litho graphing of the bonds alone would cost about $2,000. The exchange through Mr. Patter son sought to enjoin the issuance of the bonds, on the ground that they had not carried by a legal vote. There is still much difference of opinion in regard to this. It is planned to build another story on the historic old Aquarium building in New York City, to be used as a biological laboratory to carry on the daily study of aquatic life. Let us show you why you pay $250 to $400 LESS for a Studebaker! Understand at the start, we don't mean that you pay leas for less value. Not at all. What we'd like to do is to have a few minutes of your time to show you bow and why you can get POWER, roominess, comfort; luxury, every quality that you expect in a car in the SER IES 17 Studebakers at $250 to $400 LESS than the price of other cars that equal them. Detroit's judgment has testified to the mechan ical superiority of Studebaker design. Detroit makes three-fourths of the cars produced in the country knows cars from the technical side as no other city does. And Detroit registrations during the year of 1915 showed Studebaker far in the lead of any car selling at over $500. Likewise the State of California showed Stude baker at the top of its 1915 registrations for cars selling at over $500. And California knows cars from the performance --having more miles of good roads and more days of good driving weather than any other State. . With such testimony back of the cars and a price $250 to $400 LOWER than any other cars of equal quality can you safely decide on any other car?

People of Outside Towns Coming to Visit King Ak With a male population of 355 men, Kennard has promised to bring 400 to Omaha Monday night for the Ak-Sar-Ben initiation at the Den.

Central City, Polk and several other towns out in the state are to have delegations here. Automobile tourists and road boosters from the towns are going to drive to Omaha, to boost for a short route cut off drive to Omaha. Monday night is also to be Ancient Order of United Workmen night.
