7:30. Charles Peters, leader. Come ex
pecting to take a part in the- services
of automobiles, according to Oscar
U. Gingrich, manager and proprie
tor of the Gingrich Motor & Tire
Mr. Gingrich had the following
to say when interviewed by a rep
resentative of The Statesman: "V.
C. Rush, one of our salesmen, and
myself went to Portland Friday of
the week of the auto show antici
pating nothing unusual, inasmuch
as we have always taken in the
Portland show and off course ex
pected to see many new and beau
tiful cars as usual. - We went to
the show because we considered it
more or less a matter of necessary
routine in the conduct of our bus
iness, as well as the automobile
industry as a whole.
TV'e arrived at the auditorium
late in the afternoon and proceed
ed to take in all cars on the main
floor. Vc were In no particular
hurry to get to the Covey Motor
Car company's booth, where a full
line of Chrysler cars was display
ed. It being the dinner hour we
had an excellent opportunity to get
a good view at all models, due to
the absence of onlookers at this
hour. Needless to say that Ave had
the surprise of our lives. Mr. Hush
being more or less of the nervous
temperament, circled one Chrisler
after another, then doubled back
and tried to call my attention to
a multitude of things until I fin
ally suggested that we had better
get our dinner aud v come back
again, and In the meantime get
a demonstration in the car. After
dinner one af the accommodating
salesmen of the Covey Motor com
pany gave us a ride in the stan
dard model touring car. He took
us tiut on Washington Heights and
circled the heights to the top. The
outstanding feature of our trip In
the top was tlie tremendous toner
manifested and the ease wit ft
which the little car responded to
every movement of the driver. At
one time the driver idled the car
on one of the steepest grades and
when we rather expected hint to
shift to second ho opened, by a
slight movement of nts toot, a re
serve power jet and the car picked
up speed, and in but a very few
yards was traveling at 30 miles an
hour. It was at this particular
time that I suggested that the new
era of the gasoline engines hud
arrived, inasmuch as I was thor
oughly convinced that a steam en
gine could do no better and prob
ably not as well under similar con
Our driver, on descending the
heights thought he would give us
a thrill, when traveling at a speed
of 43 miles he suddenly applied
the hydraulic service brakes char
acteristic of the Chrysler cars and
within what seemed to us but a
the beautiful setting.
The extremely low appearance
of the car with big tires, and the j
sturdy small wheels with heavy
spokes add to the exterior attract
iveness of the car. At tlie first
glance one would think that the
car lacks' clearance, but close ex
amination discloses the fact much
to your surprise that it has just as
much clearance as any automobile.
An unusually attractive instrument
board with indirect lighting adds
wonderfully to interior design. Af
ter very close inspection and the
most scrutinizing observation we
have come to the conclusion that
the car Is years in advance of the
best automobile engineering and

Hyster, capable of moving houses

many other operations too numer

an automatic "rocker dump body
