PREMIUM ON BONDS
Hole Company Accepts $100
Bond at Value of $102 on
Purchases of Their
Liberty loan bonds are already sell
ing at a premium. The Cole Moor
Car company of Indianapolis, makers
of the Cole, Eight automobile, will
take Liberty loan bonds in payment
for t car and every $100 bond will be
accepted at a value of $102.
This plan was put Into effect May
23 and has met the enthusiastic ap-
Jtroval of government officials, includ
ng Secretary McAdoo. Bankers also
approve it The Cole motor car people
themselves urge other manufacturers
to adopt the same plan because it
shows the people that Liberty loan
bonds are just as negotiable as cash
and that they are likely to rise in
value and purchasing power.
Under this plan a person who wants
to buy the seven-passenger Cole tour
ing car, for example, the price of
which is $1,795, can buy $1,750 worth
of bonds for $1,750 at any bank. He
can turn these in to the Cole Motor
Car company or its sales agents in
any city for $1,785, and pay the other
$10 cash and get his car at a total
cost of $1,760. ,
Money works Double.
This simply amounts to making
money work double. The buyer buys
the Liberty loan from the government
and then turns around and makes it
buy his motor car.
Added attractiveness is given to the
proposition because the Cole com
pany announces that it will allow pur
chasers to buy back their bonds in
cash at any time they desire.
The financial advisers of the big
company predict that a general adop
tion of this plan in the country's busi
ness would give an impetus to the
country's war loan far greater even
than that to similar government war
loans negotiated by the European
governments since 1914.
"We may be too old, or otherwise
physically disqualified for service in
the trenches, but every man can lend
his support in this first great cam-
fiaign for money," said A. F. Knob
och, general manager of the Cole
company. "It is our first battle and
we are going to win a glorious vic
tory. Helps Both Sales.
"However, the thought occurred in
nur minds that perhaps an automobile
sale might interfere with the pur
chase of a Liberty loan bond. We
want tolsell automobiles, but we are
more anxious to see the Liberty loan
bonds sold. Therefore, we urge all
prospective purchasers of Cole cars to
give preference to the support of the
government and first invest their
money in Liberty loan bonds.
"Then, we offer to every holder of
a Liberty loan bond, or bonds, an in
ducement to reinvest that bond, or
those bonds, in partial payment, or
full payment for his Cole automobile,
at the rate of $102 for each and every
$100 included in the original bond in
vestment. "We suggest that every American
business man who has anything to sell
adopt the Cole Liberty loan plan and
thereby make liquid the Liberty loan
bond just as the $l-bill is liquid in

of the proposition to tax autontobiles

Hudson Super-Six Fleet
To Take Place of Racing Team
"No racing team entered for the
classic automobile speed events this
year will be watched by the motor
ing public with such interest as the
Hudson Super-Six fleet," said Guy L.
Smith, Hudson distributor.
"That is because the Hudson race
performance will represent the en
durance qualities of the Hudson
Super-Six stock car. Except for a
few changes the chassis of the Hud
son racing specials will be the stock
chassis of the Super-Six. Hudson
wanted to adhere as closely as pos
sible to the stock car structure, so
that what its racing fleet does under
the punishment of the speed events
will reflect what can be expected of
a Hudson stock car in any endur

to finish among the leaders. The ex

Pelton Makes Government
Partner in His Business
Thines move faster in motor car
circles than most any other line of
industry and more live ideas are trace
able directly to the motor industry
than to any other.
H. Pelton, Franklin and Marmon
distributor, has hit upon a plan which
will make the government a partner
in his business and directly aid the
sale of Liberty bonds.
Every new car purchased within
the next thirty days will carry with
it a gift of Liberty bonds.
"In this way," asserts Mr. Pelton,
"we can aid the government in sell
ing Liberty bonds and we are glad to
advertise the fact that part of our
prohts will go to such a cause.
