As a preliminary to a test case to

Omaha Chamber of Commerce just to
gossip oven old days when they were
both aboard the United States ship

THIS GREAT CHALMERS ENGINE RUNS WITH
MIDSlMMER SOFTNESS ON A BITING COLD DAY
la years gone by we have driven very excellent cars over which
we have labored countless half hours to start on a cold day. And
these same cars sputtered for miles afterwards once we got the
engine going. . (
So you may imagine the sense of satisfaction that we have in this
current new Chalmers which not only starts with a vim on a cold
day, but runs with the softness of midsummer in a few seconds after
the starter button has sent the engine on its way.
To put your finger on the ' why " is to put it on the now famous
' hot spot" (an ingenious device that cracks up the gas into a'wonder
ful. fine vapor, then heats it) and a magnificent "ram's-horn "manifold
(which speeds the gas on its way to the cylinders for, instant action.)

The Allen, more so than any car under $1500, pro
vides these qualities in excess measure.
The 37 H. P. 4-cylinder motor of 3 & -inch bore and
,inch stroke not only delivers a big flow of power, but is
extremely quick in pick-up, silent and vibrationless.
The Allen has a remarkable record for stick-to-it-iveness
and long life. Herein lies one of its greatest values.
Plenty of leg room easy spring action. Comfortable up-,
holstving, and a general perfection of car balance makes
driving a pleasure. .
The Allen's light weight 2300 pouads
sumption low and tire mileage high.
The Allen New Series 41 body finishes brown and green

fitting climax in providing what you want in a motor car.
