f It became known late yesterday that George V. Adams,
holder of all Oregon road records, will be entered iri the au
tomobile races at the state fair grounds this afternoon. He
will drive the smallest stock car entered in the races, a Max
well 'touring, strictly stock car entered by the Covey Motor
Car company of Portland. i
: Nine' professional cars are en
tered In the big races set for the
state (air grounds track this aft
ernoon. Nine steel and rubber
and gas-spitting demons, some of
them big aa locomotives, some of
them little like fleas that can lift
7 6 times their own weight and
Jump. 300 times their own length
at a'aingle bound, will line up for
the various events. '
M Records Expected
All previous track, records are
likely to go limping off the track,
tor there has never been any
thing to approach the class of the
cars t&atare to do! battle today.
The big Yakima (Special No. 4,
. a Mercer .with a Wolverine motor
of 5 -inch bore, 4s one of the en
tires that will attract attention.
ft weighs close to 2000 pounds,
tripped of ever pound of surplus
kcept Its own Inherent size. An
other Mercer, entered by Dan
Boss of Portland, Is not much. If
any lighter.
Are Giants of the- Course
' They are the Giants of the
track, and are known to be travel
ing fiends. When they swing
around the corners, and skid Into
the ' straightaway, they almost
lock the whole track; there's no
room for anyone else to passthem
exceptby hurdling or tunneling
under them. .
Z L, E. Caul of Baker, has a Hud
son special that Is reputed to bo
Itghtnlng fast. This and the Stutz
Bearcat, entered by Hog of Port
land, will weight somewhere
about 2200 pounds each.
Andre Enters Racer
Three cars will enter at about
1500 pounds, weight:. A Watt
Special, entered by Major Andre
'ot Salem, and built at the Watt
thops on Ferry street ; the Ross
Special, entered from Portland,
with a Templar, engine and a specially-built
frame; and a Fronte
iTac.' entered by, W. T'J. McDonald
"of Portland.
The Watt has been In the build
ing for several months, but was
brought out on" the track only a
iew aays ago. it iooks to oe a
wonaeriuiiy last machine, with a
number of unusual features that
will make H Interesting. The
Frontenac was winner in the San
to Monica road race, in California
a year or two ago, and is a well
known rcer. The Ross Special
was raced last year, coming to
grief on the last turn of the state
fair track early in the series last
fall. It Is a classy looking car.
Two Salem Can Enter
The other two entries are the
Salem cars, the Dusty Special
built by Lee Eyerly and now own
ed and driven by Harry Rhodes,
and the Larlce Special, owned by
Larry Hofer and Lee Eyerly, and
to be driven by Eyerly.
The first named is the real mid
get of the day, weighing only
about 960 pounds. It Is a Ford,
shortened, lowered, narrowed,
with a Rajo racing head and a
lot of interesting race refine
ments. It cuts the corners of the
track like a squirrel, and has
speed that no. one would believe
possible for so small a machine
The Larlee Special, built on a Ford
basis, weighs about 1350, has a
16-valve raving head, a streamline
body. Is lengthened and lowered
from the standard Ford size, and
last year was the best race winner
In the northwest.
Motorcycles to Race ;
Two motorcycle races are to be
offered; the first a closed race
for local riders only, and the sec
ond an openproffessional race with
the sky the limit for entries. The
three winners of the recent races
In Portland, who are ready to go
to California for the racing season
are to stop over and take part in
this race. One of these rides an
Indian Special thaj. has made 110
miles 'an ihour'.' It has the most
powerful motor ever put in a mo
torcycle, and it ought to give the
spectators a. genuine thrill. The
others are racing machines also,
though not quite so powerful.

Supposing that, beginning tomorrow, all the newspapers are discontinued. What a fa-
rore the public would make. "News ! News ! We must have news or we will be no bet
ter off than the ancients." "All right, suppose we give them news but cut out the ad
vertisements." Then we would discover that politics, the doings of society, notices of fires, accidents,
deaths, scandals, sports, the activities of the police and criminals add little or nothing
to the real comfort and happiness of this greatest age in the world's history.
What genii are they that have crowded
the last fifty years with so much of advan
tage to humans? They are legion in num
ber, but not least among them is Adver
tising. Our day is the greatest time the world
has seen because we have more to be happy
with better things, greater variety, greater
comforts gathered together from the North,
East, West and South for our choosing and
selection. Look about you. This is the day
of better food, better homes, better clothing,
better babies, better health, better business.
And advertising Is the instrument that
makes these better things possible.
Advertising is the NEWS of all the looms,
of all the furnaces, of all the laboratories, of
all the shops, of all the stores, of all the
world and all working for you.
Because of advertising, luxuries and ne
cessities that once cost a king's ransom art
? ours at little prices. Advertising pits mer
chant against merchant, artisan against ar
tisan, producer against producer, for your
benefit, forcing out the best there Is in ev
erything and telling the world about it.
Read advertising. Keep abreast of today,
Advertising furnishes you with facts and op
portunities that you would otherwise never
