motor tourist gives
the tire question most
To the motorist of any considerable experience,
the tire question is not answered by "I'll try it,"
rather by "I have tried them."

by race drivers and experienced motorists, it's
high time you asked us.

There is but one thing responsible for the pres-
ent low price of the Maxwell. It is the concentration k;
on one type of car; standardization in every respect, '

The use of the automobile for tour
ing has been increased greatly in the

Saxon "Sixes" in World's -Record
Run From New York to 'Frisco
6 Days 18 Hours 10 Minutes
Precisely al 10:80 Saturday morninp, July a
Saxon "Six" swung through the dnrn of the
New York Suxon salesroom, sped swiftly through
the crowded traffic, crossed the ferry, and with
its radiator turned to the west struck into a
The eager driver bore message from Mayor
Mitchel of New York to Mayor Rolf of San
One hundred miles further on another Saxon
"Six" driver took up the message and the race
against time. So on and so on until the 3Hth
Saxon "Six" in the Atlantic-Pacific relay race
drew up at Mayor Rolf's office in Frisco at 4:40
Saturday morning, July 122.
And the time was 6 days, 18 hours and 10 min
utes th fastest time ever mad by automobile
from New York to Sen Francisco over the Lin
consider that the terrific rate of speed at
which it was necessary for each Saxon "Six"
to be driven made the wear and tear on each
car equal to that of hundreds and hundreds of
miles of ordinary motoring.
- consider that not a single mechanical fault
developed to delay the progresB of this thril
ling trans-continental trip.
consider that these Saxon "Sixes" met and
surmounted every possible obstacle of road
and weather. Through deep and heavy sand,
over new-made country roads, across streams
and up rock-strewn mountain roads, across
vast, sun-baked stretches, these Saxon "Sixes"
proved to the world their wonderful strength
And now with these things in mind, know
ing the difficulties thesn Saxon "Sixes" had
to overcome you will know more clearly how
remarkable is the time of 6 days, 18 hours
and 10 minutes for this ocean-to-ocean dash,
and you will realize more vividly than from
any words what a truly wonderful motor car
Saxon "Six" really is.

Up and Take
True it was a shock to
those blase motorists who
went to the far ends of
the earth to buy their
cars, but they now admit
that Omaha has men just
as capable of building
automobiles as any east

give Omaha a chance to
