TACOMA, Aah;f Oct. 23 (AP)
A new glacier has been discov
ered in the Olympic mountains by
Counts Made at Same Point
for Corresponding Sun
- - days, of Two Years '
With the coming of the new
year the Silver Jubilee Automo
bile Shows will be held, celebrat
ing the twenty-fifth year of the
National Automobile Exhibitions.
How motor vehicle design and
construction have progressed
within that time is strikingly
brought out in a record achieve
ment just made as compared with
another made 20 years ago l.y
the same make of car.
In 1903 an Oldsmobile made
the first cross-continent run evr
accomplished by automobile, trav
elling the 3500-miles from New
York to Portland, Ore.,' in 4 4 days
actual running time. This feat
was considered marvelous. Dur
ing the latter part of October of
this! year another, Oldsmobile,
made a non-stop run . of 5,310
miles in exactly one week. Not
once during the entire 7 days or
168 hours as the engine .allpw
ed to stop. . V;: '
This latest record was made by
a stock Oldsmobile" - Six sport
touring . car,' the run .being made
under the auspices? of the J. - W.
Leavitt : organizati&n of " Sacra
mento, Calif. The bar was driven
day and night, two drivers alter
nating at the wheel.;. .Trips were
made to and from Sacrament'J
over the regular roads to outlying
cities, the entire route forming a
spider web with Sacramento In the
center and extending over several
hundred miles in various direc
tions. An average gasoline mileage of
22 miles to the gallon was made
during the run. This included
time that the engine was idling
for change of drivers, etc., while
mileage was not being1 recorded
on the speedometer. Only two
pints of oil and three pints of wa
ter were used.' - Not an 'adjust
ment was made on the car, the
hood being raised only to add oil.
At the conclusion of the run the
car . was driven up a hill having a
45 per cent grade.
The second day of the run wr.a
made in high gear the entire 2 4
hours, the gear shift lever having
been removed. On another day's
run the route included 13 veiy
bad-.detours on each trip made.
j The average speed during the
entire run was 31.66 miles psr
hour. This made necessary a
speed varying between DO and 60
miles an hour whenever road con
ditions permitted, so as to make
op for time lost in stops and in
city traffic. In view of this high
speed -maintained the greater po
tion of the time, the low gasoline
Consumption is considered even
ment, and we will continue to pay
this indemnity as long as the. pur
chaser is totally, disabled from
injury and as long as he is con
fined to the house as a result of
Illness, until the car .is finally
Jaid for if disability continues
hat long. In oher words, if
the purchaser is unable to work
as the result of -an accident or is
confined to the house as a result
of sickness, we provide indemnity

The policy Is not In the form
of a loan, but is insurance and
in no way obligates the policy hol
der to return the amount paid..
Mr. Andersoni states that the
question is often asked him by a
prospective purchaser, "What will
happen if I am sick and unable
to meet my payments." r This
question has been very hard' ta
answer but now with this policy
it is easily solved because : the
policy takes care of all payments.
Another good feature about this
insurance is its little cost added
Mr. Anderson. The cost in only
cost for this insurance is only 114
per cent. On three hundred dol
lars that would make a charge of
