PROTECT YODR CAR
FROM FIRE HAZARD
Fifty-Seven Reasons Why
Autos Are Likely to Go '
Up in Smoke.
DANGER ALWAYS PRESENT
Do motor cars burn? They do
every day. They , take fire on the
road and in the garage. , And unless
the owner is prepared to put out the
fire he must expect a .total loss.
Insurance, of course, will cover
this, yet if he uses the money to buy
a new car he must take out another
policy and pay another premium.
Protection is thus far cheaper.
The "Western Underwriter recently
compiled a list, of lifty-scven ways
automobiles have actually taken fire.
Here they arc: .
Collision with another auto.
Collision with runaway horse.
Collision with street car.
Collision with other vehicle.
Fire ensuing from. collision.
Collision because of broken axle.
Collision because of broken steer
Collision ;: because of defective
Striking obstruction in road.

Roominess in Velie Six
Wins Movie Star's Eye
Gale Henry, comedy star of Uni
versal productions, wanted a car. She
wanted "room," so she might take as
many of her friends with her as could
be comfortably seated.
Invariably there are a great many
cars parked around Film City watch
ing the interesting procedures, so Miss
Henry and cix other girls started out
to look them over. It was agreed
that a car was not to be given a sec
ond look if it failed to seat three in
the front seat, and four in the rear

Saxon "Six" Touring Car
There's no denying that your Ford will "get you there and
back" and do it economically.
But most Ford owners want more than that. . They would
like an electric starter, and electric lights that are bright at all
speeds. They would enjoy more seat room and more leg room. '
They wish their car had softer cushions and easier springs;
longer Avheel base and modern body lines.
So Ford owners are turning by thousand's to the Saxon Six
when (they want a new car. It has everything they want in a car,
coupled with the economy and dependable service they are accus-
tpmed td in the Ford.
Long wheel base gives abundant room to stretch your legs;
deep roomy seats and tufted cushions assure easy chair comfort.
You can ride all day in a Saxon Six without fatigue.
" Yes, it costs more than the Ford it would have to. But
considering what it has the added comfort it brings the pride
of owning such a beautiful; luxurious car the difference is less
than you would expect. Besides, that difference is in time wied
out by the lower up-keep cost and the extra years youH drive .
the Saxon Six. . : , ' .
' Low up-keep is due to the six-cylinder, high-speed motor.
. Vibration simply doesn't exist. The engine runs so smoothly
y.ou almost forget it's there. ' ' ,
Long, easy springs absorb all road shocks, so the Saxon Six
will run year in and year out without noticeable repairs.
There never was a betf er time to turn in your Ford on a new
car;' TVe have an order n jw for a hundred used Fords if we can
secure them, at once. ....... .

IN TRACTOR SHOW
' . i
Food Need for War Will Attract
Attention of Nation to Big
EVERYONE TURNS FARMER
"When the annual tractor show
opens at Fremont August 6 for its
seven-day run it will not only com
mand national attention, but will
create such an intensity of interest on
the part of every man, woman and
child in the country as has never be
fore been known in any enterprise
of any kind."
Dent Farrett, president of the Par
rett Tractor company of Chicago, in
Omaha, made this statement.
this condition, according to Mr.
Parrett, will, of course, be the direTct
result of war conditions.
"Only a few days ago I received
a telegram from Washington asking
for information as to our output, and
I understand every other manufactur
ing plant in the country is being
similarly questioned. This is a war
of munitions and food as well as men,
and just as the navy and army are
speeding up in the matter of re
cruits vc manufacturers are speeding
up in our efforts to marshal the im
portant factors of another war angle
that is, the feeding of the nation.
Government it Stimulant.
The government is ltimulatiug in
terest in larger crops, and citizens
who otherwise would not he inter
ested in tractor shows will be in at
tendance at Fremont."
Another bit of interesting informa
tion given by Mr. Parrett concerns
the Society of Automotive Engineers,
an organization of experts of which
Mr. Parrett is a member, and which
is now one of the government's strong
war cards. These men are expected
to undertake the task of solving au
tomotive problems for the govern
ment, which will include motorboats,
autos, motorcycles, tractors and pos
sibly airplanes. The first asignment
of the society concerns the standardi
zation of airplanes motors.
Inspect Show Grounds. ,
Mr. Parrett accompanied the com
mittee in charge of the tractor show
to Fremont to look over the ground.
The committee is made up of: J. B.
Bartholomew, president of the Avery
company of Peoria, 111., and the
American Threshcrmen's and Tractor
association: Bradford Brintori, vice
president of the Grand DeTour Plow
company of Dixon, 111.; V. H. Hag
gard, of the Emerson-Braudingham
compauv of RnrMnrri, III.: II. II.
Bates, of the loilet (111.) Oil Tractor

should you care to "liquidate" you will
find that the price of a used Studebaker
is much higher in proportion to first cost
than that of most cars.
If you do not sell you will find the opera

or two years to be far less than other cars.
