quently these motor vehicles, some
20 in number, will, weather permit
ting, be parked adjacent to the na
tional guard building on Liberty
street, where their merits will be ex
tolled by salesmen. Even with the
elimination of trucks from- the ar
mory some professional juggling will
be required to so place the more
than 50 automobiles that all may
have representation on the floor.
Decorations Are Complete.
The armory has a floor space of
approximately 8000 square feet, and
providing for two eight-foot aisles
through the center of the room and
f uor-foot aisles on either end, and
allowing 8x16 feet for each car ex
hibited, the big building will accom
modate only 46 machines. There
are 34 different makes of pleasure
cars represented in Salem, and the
greater number of dealers are de
sirous of displaying two or three
models of tbeir -babies." Thus it
will readily be seen that the man
agement will be called upon to per
form magic In order to retain peace
in Salem's big automobile family.
But President Delano and Secre
tary Halvorsen, who are shouldering
the bulk of responsibility in connec
tion with the forthcoming show, are
closely identified with that class
commonly known as pinch hitters
and those persons who slip a piece
of silver into the itching palm of the

When you see a Hudson doing the things

Vibration is the greatest destructive force
about a motor car. . ..
Vibration does far more damage than any
hock received in useful service. Yon can
see its destructive effects when a motor is
raced. . . , .
Vibration absorbs power. By minimizing
it, greater power is available for the opera
tion of the car. And there is less strain and
damage done through self destruction.
The records made by the Super-Six were
possible only because of its patented motor.
It enabled the Hudson to maintain close to
its maximum speed for hours, even days as
in one test, without hammering itself to

Hudson records were made more than

finer, better Hudson, of which 100 are de

were brought up to match the motor, that
had reached a new high level of efficiency.
All men seem to know this. For four years
Hudson has been the largest selling fine car.
Practically every buyer has had to wait for

Autos Now Necessity.
The automobile of today is an es
tablished industrial product. It is
far beyond the experimental period
From a mechanical viewpoint it is
correct in all the elementary prin
clples which go to make up the au
tomotive vehicle. And the day of
radical changes in automobile con
struction appears to have been rele
gated to the background, never
again to be called forth.
Naturally, there will continue to
be betterments of minor character
the same as in other lines of endeav
or, but methods have been tried and
perfected until there can be little
room for further rapid or radical de
velopment. As a result the automo
bile is an automobile, and not a
mere mechanical indication of some
thing different to follow.
To the purchaser this indisputable
fact Is assuring, even Rreater in Its
importance than to the vendor. It
is assurance that money expended for
an automobile brings a practically
perfect product; a product behind
which are the maker and the deal
er, whose knowledge of what, it can
do, and what it will do. is no long
er clothed in misrepresentations or
deceptions. The field is too wide
and the demand too great to depart
from legitimate business channels in
order to "turn a car" of any brand.
Industry to Expand.
These facts place the automotive
Industry on a higher plane, and

It from third to second standing
among the industries of the world

Locally, the advertising columns
of The Statesman this morning are
indicative of the proportions to
which the industry has rown in Sa

time since only a few lines were rep
resented today finds 34 different
makes of automobiles and several
models of each make, some 10 re
tail establishments having entered
the field within the past year. There
are 16 concerns handling pleasure
cars, and an equal number handling
trucks, eight of the latter devoting
their entire attention to promoting
sales in their particular line.
