Thirty-three dealers in rps must
appear before the state department of
pure foods within two weeks and show
cause vhy they should not be fined

department regarding handling of
"I am not going to start a cam
paign of persecution." said State Com
missioner Murchel thi morning to
The Bee, "but I will prosecute these
men, or any other men, who persist in
being careless in handling eggs."
Two government officials were here
fast week and assured the -food com
missioner he would have co-operation
of the government in prosecuting his
campaign for purer eggs.
Carelessness in handling eggs and
failure of many dealers to candle them
is leading to the palming ofT on the
public of eggs of "careless habits,"
and a campaign of education will be
followed by the food commissioner.

Fairbury, Neb., Aug. 18. (Special.)
The acceptance of Clyde Scott, a Jef

tins, now county clerk and chairman
of the local exemption board, with
whom he lived and attended school
for a time. Since, then he worked for
several farmers in this vicinity, saving
suthctent money to begin farming on
jus own account.

They pleaded guilty under the im

a fine. Instead they heard a sentence
of six months in the county jail for
each of them. Their attorneys then
"got busy" and had them withdraw
their olea of guilty, which the judge
allowed them to do because of a cer

guilty. They will stand trial before
a federal jury.

Hudson Sets New Records
on the Speedway
The speedway, too, has failed to exhaust Hud
son Super-Six endurance. The special racing cars
built to meet those conditions, but' preserving the
same principle that accounts for endurance in the -stock
cars, did not reach the limit of Hudson endur
ance. They did establish the American Speedway
record for 200 miles at an average speed of 104 miles
an hour. JThe Hudson Super-Six racers made more
records in their campaign of racing than any team of
cars the industry has produced.
These records are made only to indicate what
you may expect from a Hudson Super-Six. You don't
want a racing car. The car you buy isn't suitable for
racing. It is made suitable for the kind of service
you want. That service means endurance the kind
that does not call for frequent adjustments, repairs
and overhauling. It is the kind of car that you can
use clay after day and month after month with a re
liance as to its performance that increases only as you
continue its use.
y Just Now Hudsons
During this time when prices are being read
justed on account of increased cost of production,
you can buy a Hudson Super-Six at the same priceN
you pay for former cheaper cars. If you wait, you
run the risk of not being able to get such an advan
tageous price. When present material supplies arev
exhausted and cars must be built from material
bought in the present market, then the Hudson Super
Six must be priced in comparison to its greater value
and greater cost on the standard established by
