Des Moines, la., March 31. (Spe
cial.) World's Champion Bob Simp
son and Challenger Waldo Ames of
Illinois and Jowas best,. Koscoe
Packer of- Ames, will be the central
figures in one of the special events
at the Drake relays, April 21.' It is
possible that a former holder of the
world record may be in the event, his
entry depending upon his present col
legiate standing. Other hurdlers prac
tically certain to take part are Burke
of Wisconsin and Schienberg of Pur
due, the two men who compelled
Ames to set a new conference record
ior the seventy-yard high hurdles in
the annual indoor Big Nine at Evan
ston Saturday night.
Simpson of Missouri, the greatest
hurdler of all time, is, of course, the
central figure in this event. It will
be his third appearance on an Iowa
track. He was a member of the Mis
souri half-mile team in the Drake re
lays two years ago and probably will
be a member of the same team this
year, in addition to appearing in the
special events. Later that same year
lie took part in a dual meet between
Missouri and Ames and sustained the
only defeat event administered by a
college opponent when Roscoe
Packer climbed over the high sticks
and broke the tape in the lead. Last
season he was the .sensation of the
vear and continually and consistently
"ran the 120ryard hurdles in better
than world's marks.-
Ames1 rS Contender.
This year Waldo Ames of ..Illinois,
a former star of the Chicago high
schools, has shown possibilities of
being a possible formidable opponent
of the Missouri star. He has made
new amateur records for thfe indoor
event from fifty to seventy-five yards,
while his mark Saturday night was
a new world's mark. He is the most
graceful of the men in the event, but
lacks the strength of even the less
known of his opponents. However,
he has been coming strong in the last
year and at the present time looks

Packer, the Iowa entry in the
event, has not been going good in
the indoor work, but may round to
in time to be a real factor, in the
local race. At the time of tr.'; Penn
relays a year ago Packer ma the
best record ever made by an Iowa
hurdler, when he won his prelimi
nary event, but a fall put him out of
the finals. That he will make an at-
tempt to place his name at the head
of all Iowa hurdlers in this, his last
year in athletics, is expected and as
he is a fellow with plenty of sand it
is fairly certain the Iowa entry will
be very much present in the new
event in the Drake relays.

to destroy the sweets.
Under the watchful eye of the food

10 Dominant Manufacturers Build Extra Well
Ten big motor track manufacturers stand out prominently as those whose
products find biggest use among the large concerns who buy carefully.
The stability of these ten manufacturers is assured their combined capi
talization is over $250,000,000: the value of their yearly output runs
high into the millions.
Each builds the best truck he can.
Each offers guarantees backed by tremendous resources, tremendous
manufacturing facilities; big, strong organizations, established business
In essential specifications, established practice is closely adhered to.
Eight build trucks in excess of four ton capacity. All build from one to
Yet with all the tremendous competition, with the tremendous manufac
turing efforts to build the best, SERVICE motor trucks stand out among
the ten with certain definite marked advantages of big value to purchasers.
Only one of the ten famishes tires on all models that equal SERVICE
in size. - Only one other is built to operate with perfect safety at the
tame high speed.
SERVICE is the only one of the big ten using the vacuum feed system,
assuring maximum fuel economy, steady uniform fuel supply.
Eight use the worm drive, but SERVICE worm drive construction is the
strongest that manufacturing ingenuity can devise.
Nine use pressed steel frames, but in the SERVICE motor truck pressed
steel frame greater width of flange, depth of frame, more uniform distri
bution of load assure maximum resistance to driving stress and strain and
clinch SERVICE superiority.
Five use motors of same power as SERVICE, yet SERVICE shows an
1 1 h higher rating than the other four trucks of equal capacity.
In chassis size SERVICE gives greater loading length than any other of
ten. This meant larger loading platform greater carrying capacity
more even distribution of load. Despite the over-size in construction
SERVICE motor trucks, in each model, are notably light in weight, due
to the elimination of all superfluous parts. With these points of leadership
and with every other feature of construction duplicating even the most ex
pensive of the trucks manufactured by these ten big manufacturers,
SERVICE presents a remarkably low initial cost.
&7 of Service Motor Trucks Were Re-orders in 1916
60 of Service Motor Trucks were Reorders in 1915
Wherever big purchasers, basing their orders on proved mechanical
superiority or demonstrated superior service features, are installing motor
truck equipment, SERVICE motor trucks are found.
And the big feature that stands out prominently in the history of
SERVICE tracks is the fact that in each year's business 60 of the
sales are re-sales to satisfied customers. They are in use by the biggest
corporations all over the country, in every line of work, achieving
economy results and standards of operating service that make the use of
the first SERVICE truck the basis for fleet orders.
Sizes of Service Trucks Wait to Do Your Work
SERVICE motor trucks are designed to meet the hardest working conditions to
stay in service day in and day out without time lost for repairs, to operate with min
imum mechanical attenUon, with freedom from necessity for replacement They
are an engineering achievement, particularly built for big practical terries.
Each model is built for the especial work It his to do and range is from the 1-ton
model for fast, economical moving of light loads up to the big 5-ton truck for the
heaviest hauling. All have been tried out through years of usage. Eich Is as
Individual is design as though It were the sole product of the factory. This la the
only way in which proper construction can be achieved. Service trucks are the
