The Cleveland fix. a ear talked about
for months, arrived in Portland last
week. It Is on display in the sales
rooms of the Twin States Motor Car
company. Sixteenth and Alder streets,
which will handle the distribution of
this new car for Oregon, in conjunction
with the Chandler and Roamer.
Motor car dealers, owners, prospec
tive owners and motor fans in general
have taken unusual interest In the new
Cleveland six. Its arrival has been the
(signal for a flock of interested persons
to give' it the once over. This is due to
a certain extent to the fact that the
same men who make the Chandler are
behind this new lijrht six.
In fact, it has already been called the
little brother of the Chandler." Though
there is a close relationship between
the companies building the two cars,
they are manufactured by entirely sep
arate organizations in different factor
ies. But it means -a lot to the public
to know that the same policies that
have made a success of the Chandler
ore behind the Cleveland.
Chandler Engineer Dntitner.
A fact not generally known is that
Che Cleveland is designed by J. V.
Whitbeck, the same engineer who de
Bigned the Chandler. Two years ago
when A. H. Knaus, of the Twin States
ilotor Car company was at the Chandler
factory, he took a ride in the first ex
perimental Cleveland chassis. At that
time it was the intention to have the
car ready for production much sooner
than has been, the case. The war inter
vened and its initial appearance had to
be postponed.
The Cleveland has Its own motor, an
overhead valve eix, made in its own
factory. It is a detachable head unit
with cylinders cast en bloc The whole
motor is inclosed, making a very com
pact and neat-looking job.
A feature Js the use of a hot-air
stove to warm the air before it is
brought to the Stromberff carburetor,
from which the mixture passes through
the engine block, thus providing plenty
of pre-heating and adapting the motor
to use of low-grade fuels. Unusual
gasoline economy is claimed for the
ear. The ignition system, starting
motor and generator are on the right
side and the gasoline system on the
left eide of the motor, reducing the
risks from fire.
Pressure Oil Feed.
Oiling Is pressure feed through a
hollow shaft to the main and camshaft
bearings. An oil lead is also carried
to the chain case, these leads being sup
plied by a gear pump in a sump at the
rear end of the pressed steel oil pan and
driven by spiral gear off the end of the
camshaft. An oil pressure guage is
carried on the dash. Lubrication of
pistons and other motor mechanism is
by splash.
Pump cooling Is employed in connec
tion with a Mayo radiator. The water
pump and fan are driven by an endless
V belt off the generator shaft. The
cooling system has a capacity of three
gallons.
Hotchkiss drive is used, the rear axle
being a floating type with some im
portant features of accessibility. The
pinion shaft assembly, for instance, is a
unit, being mounted on two Timkin
bearings in an independent carrier
ecrewed into the axle housing.
A special feature of the braking
system is the use of a -transmission
hand brake with the service brake, a
contracting type on the rear axle. Semi
elliptic spring suspension is used, with
38x2-inch fronts and B2x2-inch rears.
The tires are 82x2, with Firestone rims.
Transmission Hand Brake
Equipment includes one-man four-,
bow top, Johnson curtain lights,
nickel-bound, ignition lock and the
usual tool equipment.
The Cleveland is handsome in design.
The body of the car is finished in Cleve
land blue. Hood, fenders and running
board are In black enamel. The uphol
steary is hand-buffed, bright finished,
long-grain leather. Wheels and chassis
are in black.
The car cornea in four models, tour
ing car, roadster, sedan and coupe. Mr.
Knaus expects a shipment to supple,
xnent the present demonstrator in the
next couple of weeks. Incidentally,
this demonstrator will be on exhibition
this week at the Salem state fair auto
mobile show.
The Cleveland is very roomy, yet its
chipping weight is only 2400 pounds.
Its six-cylinder high-speed motor is
remarkably peppy and powerful.
TRACTOR TESTS ARE ARRANGED
Demonstration to Be Held: by Kitti
tas County Farm Bureau.
ETJFINSBUItq. Wash., Sept IS. A
tractor demonstration and competitive
plow test arranged by the Kittitas
county farm bureau will be held Octo
ber 1 at the C. C. Peterson ranch near
here. The demonstration will consist
of practical work of tractors in every
field of farm labor. Ten firms have al
ready entered tractors for the demonstration.

This demonstrator reached the Twin States Motor Car company last week from the Cleveland factory at Cleveland,
O., and will shortly be followed by other shipments for Immediate delivery. Note the pleasing lines of the car, as shown
by the photographs. Above is a side view of the Chandler, with A- H. Knaus of the Twin States Motor Car company be
side it. Below to the left is a front view, and at the right a rear view. Just as the Chandler has Its own Individual
name-plate and rear window symbol, so has Its smaller brother, the Cleveland, as you can see from the picture. Any
time you see this design on name-plate or reax window you'll know It's a Cleveland, and you'll see it often In the
near future.
DEMAND FOB TIRES BRISK
AUSTRALIA FIXE MARKET FOR
AMERICAS CASIXGS.
65 Per Cent of Tires Used ln Island
Continent Said to Come
From America.
Of all the tires imported into the
great island continent of Australia 65
per cent are American made. Thie is
the statement of Charles Duval, who
controls the sale of Goodrich tires and
accessories in the Antipodes country.
He recently visited Akron as the guest
of F. E. Titus, foreign sales manager
of the Goodrich company.
Discussing foreign trade and busi
ness conditions, Mr. Duval said that al
though Australia is moving forward
with great strides in industrial devel
opment, he marvels at the achievements
of America. He was amazed to find
that cities the size of Indianapolis, De
troit and Pittsburg, possess more auto
mobiles than the entire continent of
Australia. Mr. Duval said the last reg
istration of cars in Australia showed
60,000.
"My country, like America, is plan
ning an extensive system of national
highways," said Mr. Duval. "We are
not as far advanced In highway build
ing as you in America, but during the
next five years 120,000,000 will be spent
jn road work, half of this amount to
be raised by the various states of Aus
tralia. In Victoria alone there are 1000
towns with absolutely no railroad com
munication and the people are de
pendent on motor vehicle transporta
tion. "The cost of motoring is considerably
higher in Australia than in America.
Care and tires cost twice as much as
here and when X left home gasoline was
selling for 85 cents a gallon. Although
wages are not quite as high, the cost
of living is considerably lower.
"America has made marked progress
in her foreign trade methods during
and since the war. There has been
more of a tendency on the part of
American manufacturers to deal direct
with their foreign customers, rather
than through an export house. Direct
dealing is more satisfactory in every
way. It means cheaper rates, faster
service, closer contacts and warmer
friendships.
"The downward trend of English ex
change which makes a pound sterling
worth 4.8 as against 4. 88 repre
senting a discount of about 10 per cent
has a confusing effect on business
and is a serious handicap for American
trade with England and her colonies.
But in face of this fact American-made
goods are popular with Australians and
we are willing to sacrifice the differ
ence for better quality. American cars,
tires and automobile accessories are
holding their own with those made in
England and Australia."
Mr. Duval maintains a large sales
force and has branch houees in Sydney,
Brisbane and Melbourne. He left Akron
for NewYork. where he will stay for
two weeks before returning to Sydney
via England.
INDIANA SEXECTS CONCRETE

ways. Contracts were awarded the
same day for the entire mileage -all
for concrete. This work is divided into
eight separate contracts totaling 679,
374 square yards and involves an ex
penditure of $1,891,669.65. Indiana al

Double Moore Exhaust System Found
by Test to Give Gain of 2 2
Per Cent in Power.
It Is the simple things in motor car
construction to a great extent that have
' Increased its efficiency to the present
high standard of today.
The value of simplicity is most forci
bly demonstrated on the Lexington cars
in the application of the Moore multi
ple exhauut system, a system used only
on the Lexington.
Isaac Brunn of the Brunn Motor Car
company, speaking of the value of this
simple application of two exhaust pipes
to the six-cylinder Lexington engine
says: "The Moore system is so arranged
that only one cylinder exhausts In the
manifold at the same time.
"In a six-cylinder engine two cylln
dera always exhaust at the same time
and with the single exhaust pipe It
has been found that in the fast-moving
engine there Is always a back pressure
1th a single exhaust pipe. With th
Moore double exhaust: this does nol
happen.
"What extent this back pressure
has upon reducing the power ef the
engine may be appreciated that in th
test in the Lexington factory, where
Moore is one of the engineers, it has
been found that the double system over
the single system Increases the power
of the engine 22.8 per cent.
"If for no other reason this would
be enough to cause its adoption, but il
has also been found that with the dou
ble system the amount of carbon Is de
creased and a longer time betwees
grinding of cylinders necessary."
KELLY CLOSES BIG CONTRACT

The Perfect Light Six-
Few radical changes have been made in
the new Victory Model -Mitchell Six aa com
pared to the Mitchell JJght Six of the past
few seasons.
Improvements have been in the nature of
refinements and perfecting- of existing- do
sign, Rldinjf comfort could in no way be in
creased. Ask any Mitchelll owner and he
will tell you that he has never ridden in a
car that rides so easily as his Mitchell. So
Mitchell Springs remain the same, in the
front semi-elliptic with rebound plate and
in the rear long cantilevers that are uniquely
hung.
The Victory Six is a car of increased
strength. The frame is deeper and more
rigidly cross-braced. The body frame is of
more sturdy material with the result that
annoying squeaks and rattles have been
almost entirely eliminated.
Contrary to usual opinion the material
used in the manufacture of the new Mitchell
is better than ever before used. Inspection
is 4nore thorough. Part that require close
fitting, such as pistons, bearings and the
like are given much attention, more than
has ever been attempted in the Mitchell fac
tory and we venture to say in any other
factory building a car of the Mitchell price.
Costly machines have been installed to in
sure perfection in the fit of parts.
The most notable change in the new
Mitchell is the adoption of the Borg & Beck
Dry Plate Clutch and a full floating rear
axle that is equipped with oversize differen
tial gears and axles. In fact, transmission
gears, driving shafts and the like are all
over strength.
In addition to the usual Mitchell equip
ment, such as a power tire pump, reversible
head lamps, etc, the new Mitchell has a ther
mostat for regulating the temperature of the
water in the cooling system.
Body lines have been raised and a new
and effective color scheme increases the
charm of this beauty six.
Come and see the new Mitchell. Ride in
it, drive it, see if it does not measure up to
your own ideas of the ideal light six.
