"Of course I know we arc now
enjoying in fact, reveling in prosper
ity that is abnormal, hut for the life
o me I can't see why that prosper
ity should not he permanent.
"It is possible, you know, to keep
the money after we have made it.
"And though I try, because good
business sense dictates that all should
look to the dark as well as to the
bright sirle so as to anticipate any
slump that may come, I feel that
this is one of the times when we
need not expect rain just because
we've had a prolonged period of
bright sunshine.
"I am told that 'the pendulum
must swinK to tlie other extreme,'
and all that sort of thing, hut no
rule would be a rule without an ex
ception to prove it. and surely the
world cataclysm through which other
countries are now passing is an ex
ception to all rules. I
Income in Billions. i
"Kurope has poured more than
three billions of dollars into the, :
purses of the American people in
llie last twelve months, and since all
of the. munitions contracts are for
three years, will continue to pour
it fcir some time yet.
"That money is here and there's
no reason why it should not stay
here. Europe is in dire necessity for
certain things we could make and
sell, and she is paying us for them.
There. is nothing Kurope tinkes that
we must h;ue, therefore there is no
valid rcas' ii why that money should
go back.
"Summing it up in a word, I'd ex
press it this way: We have enjoyed
five years' demand in , one year's
lime, that has resulted in empty
shelves. And empty shelves is the
best possible preface to prosperity.
Those shelves must be filled again.
..That.. demand must be supplied
"Wiiy, we have actually been en
joying a period of want in this coun
tryask milady if she hasn't had to
accept qualities of material and colors

"The close of the war will mean,

Pay Up Debts.
"Meantime many who are in debt
have paid their bills and can now
make a fresh start. Various concerns
lave discharged their obligations and
retired their bonds. This gives them
a clean slate. The only sufferers in
: his case(are those who can no longer
clip the coupons no longer draw in
terest from those bonds. But, on the
other hand, these latter have gotten
the coin and are now prospects for
the purchase of more bonds.
"Could any business man imagine
anything more beneficent than a con
dition which would take the obsolete
articles off his shelves and at full
nrice? Yet that is precisely what has
happened. Anyone who has had any
thing to sell has' sold it and realized
"Our locomotive works and rail-
nay equipment companies have been
so busy the last two years building
quipment that our own railroads
have had to get ilong with obsolete

ibnormal rate. All this must be re-

now, and this must and will u'we en

ment in all lines Konds lor any
legitimate luismos will find a ready
market, and the sale of bonds always
means development.
"Transportation has hern revolu
tionized by building of good roads
and by the automobile; people are
moving out into the fresh ait and
that movement lias just started.
"1-or the next m to ten years vr'11
be busy building fcood roads, be
cause we have tinally got the lever
and learned the efficiency of good
"This is the first time the Amer
ican public has taken the building of
good roads seriously. It will mean
a vast expenditure of money and the
distribution of wealth for sevei al
years to come.
Travel Given Impetus.
"Traveling in America has re
ceived a tremendous impetus as a
result of the enforced absence from
Kurope of many of our weathy
people. Hereafter, instead of raving
over the wonders of the European
continent, they'll be writing their for
eign friends to come over here and
see some real wonders. And so the
millions that formerly went to Ku
rope in the tourist season, are being
sown all over America.
"As I said in the beginning. I guess
I'm an optimist u right, but in that
I'm not different from the average
American. Why shouldn't we be op
timistic? We not only have the rich
est country in the world, but a coun
try whose resources are as yet unde
veloped, hardly touched, in fact. And
we have the only peaceful country
;n the world the only country in the
world to which people of all climes
may come and find a haven of rest,
of prosperity and of good will.
"And the war wasiCt necessary.
though it has helped, to make pros
perity. That was oui anyway.'

i Some Laugh at the
! Low Priced Car Till
It Gives 'Em a Laugh
"It's grtting so now that you can't
tell much about an automobile by
looking at the price tag. Even c
women have to admit that, and, as
you know, their standards are often
marked by the dollar sign," says W.
G. Killy, manager Noyes-Killy Motor
company, dealer in Saon motor cars,
in speaking of the auto price lists of
the year.
"I)id you ever take home a new suit
of clothe ami be avkeri the first thing
as t" how much it cost, then have it
appraised according to its selling
price? Well, the man who tries to do
that with an automobile gets badly
fooled or splendidly buncoed, for be
gets a (piality car oftentimes at a price
that would be catalogued as cheap in
comparison with other makes.

ever, and they sneer at the low-priced

National Touring Week
To Be Great Holiday
There is no one quite so ready to
lake a holiday as the motorist. He
dotes on holidays. This malady
thrives because it is so easy to slip
into a duster and a pair of goggles
step on the accelerator and "There's
nobody home" until Monday morn
ing. Uf course, one can't travel the en
tire length of the Lincoln or Dixie
highways, even if he devoted the
whole week to it. But you can gel
on to these great highways with very
little difficulty and keep going for a
couple of days and still get back in
good time.

Owners Who Will Have No Other Car
11,000 Ownen Rate Hupmobile Efficiency 99
HERE is a itartling
glimpse of what is
going on below the
surface in automobile buy
ing. Our service system statistics
show that 24 210 per cent
' of Hupmobile sales are
made to men and women
; who have used higher priced
: cars.
We knew we were winning

But these statistics were a

us. Consider what they
Hupmobile Market
Goes On Growing
The multi-cylinder car has
never presented its claims
more aggressively than it is
presenting them now. Mil
lions of dollars have been
expended in emphasizing
these six, eight and twelve
cylinder claims in the past
three or four years.
The Hupmobile stands out
distinctly as an exponent of
the older, simple, four-cylinder
Its market goes on steadily
growing, and 24 210 per
cent of that market is com
ing to us from the field of
higher price.
Our extensive system of
service enables us to ana
lyze sales more accurately
than other cars can.
We are in almost continuous
contact with our owners.
We know that 24 210 per
cent of these owners are
coming from the higher
priced source. We know
that 50 810 per cent of
Hupmobile owners will have
no other car. But we know,
in addition, something still
more important to you.
11,000 Owners Say:
99 Efficient
We know exactly what
11.000 owners think of
every phase of Hupmobile
construction. We know ex
actly what they think of
Hupmobile performance.
We know what they think
of its lugging power, its nim
bleness, its flexibility, its
get-away, its high-gear effi
ciency. We have their opinions of
every unit in the car their
complaints, their criticisms,
their favorable comments.
And these 11,000 opinions,
tabulated and reduced to a
percentage basis, register a
rating of 99r for all-around
Hupmobile efficiency.
No such thing as this has
ever been made possible by
any other car.
It is clinching, convincing
and conclusive.
Performance That
Matches Any
It proves that Hupmobile
owners know that the Hup
mobile daily outdoes cars
that have more cylinders, or
cost more money.
In pulling power, and quick
get-away, they see nothing
ft. lrarlfa,rlar
under a multi-cylinder nama
that they do not have.
In flexibility, they find them
selves relieved of gear-shift--
ing to en amazing extent.
And they know they are
getting in the Hupmobile
service system more than
any other car offers: expert
inspection, adjustment and
care each month for eight
months, by trained Hupmo
bile experts at Hupmobile
service stations. A service
they pay for with coupons
supplied free of cost.
The least you can do is to
have a demonstration of Hup
mobile performance.
