members of the executive committee
were getting material delivered, to
their jobs m some mysterious way

their building jobs. At the same time

De Moines, "and even though it

At the request of the federal au

named, a committee to devise a plan
to tnect the situation. The commit

glass factories to secure sand be
cause of the flat car restriction to the

He Has Had Ancestors in Every
' War Since John Smith Crossed Pond
Harry C. Claiborne, son of Mr. and
Mrs. H. H. Claiborne, left Sunday
afternoon for Fort LogarC Colorado,
where he has joined the hospital corpl
of the army. He had passed exam
ination for Fort Snelling, but because
of his youth was not among those
first called to the camp, and, becom
ing impatient of delay, decided to
"go in" as early as possible. It is in
teresting to note that he is of the
seventh generation of men who have
fought under the colors of the United
States or of the colonies, he having
had ancestors in every war from the
French and Indian war to the present
trouble. On the maternal side his
first America ancestor was Captai'i
Christopher Newport, who command
ed the fleet' which brought Captain
John Smith and the original settlers
of Jamestown, Va to America.
Maurice Northwall, son of the late
T. G. Northwall, left at the same
time for Fort Logan to enter the
same service. It is the desire of the
boys to keep together dunng the war,
as they have been together" largely
during their entire public school and
college life. Claiborne is t member
of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and
Northwall of the Phi Delta Theta.

Builders Threaten to

Arms were flourished, and oratory

Read This Letter. It Tells You Why
Motor Car Prices Must Go Higher
The Nash Motors Company makes plain why the price
of Jeffery Six can probably be maintained only a short
time, and how you can save $150 to $200 by acting
s now. Read this letter. Consider these facts. They,
are important to every automobile buyer in this city.
Dear Mr. McDearmon :
' . June 2, 1917.
rWe can n4t hope to maintain the present price of the Jeffery Six at $1465
for long certainly not after our present 6tock of raw materials is exhausted
. Materials have advanced, as you know, between 20 and 50 per cent
in the, past few months. (Forty-four automobile manufacturers have been
obliged to raise their prices from $75 to $200, clue to this condition alone.
There is no let-up in sight. The cost of materials is still advancingan d
with the proposed government war tax , to consider, motor car prices must
unquestionably go still higher.
Now soiar, we have been practically unaffected by the rising cost ofvaw
materials. Because we actually build ninety-three per cent of every Jeffery
Six in our own factory, we have to buy our materials far in advance and in
huge quantities. Therefore, the cost of this car right now is based on the cost of
materials purchased over a, year ago at much lower prices. That is why we
can sell the Jeffery Six now for $1465.
Because we have these materials in stock we have a great advantage ovet
companies which merely assemble cars and have been paying the high pre
vailing prices for their parts and supplies.
It means that you are offering to your-customers at $1465, a car which
is really worth $150 to $200 more. '
We feel certain they will take advantage of the opportunity to secure the
jeffery Six at this substantial saving. , .
Congratulations-on the fine business you have been doing in your territory.
