BETTER THAN EVER
This is the season ef the great automobile exhibition. .
This is. the opportunity to use some money, a lew hundred
dlJar. or if yon .can afford it, several thousand dollars, and
make the best possible investment. ,! '
Aotoinobiles, in Quality and price, nerer offered such values
as they do this year. i
Constantly tne genins of ; American manufacturers . has
. worked to produce in the automobile a longer life and a shorter
price. ' i '
You can bay for less than it would hare cost years ago to get
a decent horse and buggyy, an automobile that will tarry you
two hundred thousand miles. And the cost of storage, the cost
of .the gasoline used, and the .oil, which i properly used, keeps
good machine from wearing out, are small. Repairs, on the
modern car in the hands of an intelligent owner are negligible.
'A horse doing ten miles a day, six days a week, would hare
-to live about seventy years to carry you two hundred thousand
.miles. And the horse would eat all the time.
A ear eats gasoline only while you are using it.
- Dollars invested in an automobile, of modest cost or of high
- cost, represent as good an investment as the intelligent Ameri
can family can make. If conditions make it important for you
to consider economy, then the automobile represents the high
' est development in economy. ; j
V-i It saves time, increases efficiency, adds to the working
- hours by cutting out the waste of slow transportation.
Far greater than the cost of all the automobiles in the
United States, millions upon millions of cars is the wealth added
: to the nation because of time that the automobile has saved.
Where the farmer lost a whole day in going to the town or
Tillage over muddy roads ha goes now in half an hoar.
The well paid mechanic can take jobs near or far, his auto
mobile carries him. i
And above all, the automobile is important because of its
contribution to human happiness and health. i
Things more important than mere economy most be credited
to the automobile. The small cost of an automobile enables
the entire family to have pleasure with the family united,
: A man can take his wife and children, the baby and the
grandparents where he will, to the seashore or the mountains,
or for that matter all tho way across the American continent.
Automobile travel,' which was once the luxury of the .very
rich, is now the cheapest family transportation in the United
Yo know it when- you see men with so-called "jitney
-antomo biles xarryingc passengers at five cents and.:dstrojrfng
,the business of street car corporations. - i , . .
A father can. take his family,' with a camping outfit to the
; mountains or the-, shore, at a cost one-quarter what it would
; have been before the automobile came, allowing for the original
1 cost of the automobile. ' i i
Every year has seen constant-progress, improvement in
quality, production and cost. -And in no year has there been
"greater progress, greater offering of real value,! than this year.
There are, unfortunately, families that, cannot as yet afford
"an automobile. There. are also tans of thousands that think
p they cannot afford an automobile, when the fact is they really
cannot afford to be without an automobile. - .
i- a the home garage without garage charges. Automobiles that
rj ;iavs aireaay taaea xnuuons lo tne country are oeaiinea 10 uiae -
more millions. .-f ' i
And everywhere the automobile has been a Messing to this.
. Mtion. That desire to possess an automobile baa caused many
men, young and old, to work as they have not worked before.
It has Inspired millions with the desire and the ability to save.
Only the foolish talk of the aatomobile as a "pleasure car."
'That which means economy, greater efficiency, health, happiness :
. and families united Js-a blessing and a necessity.
"It does give pleasure, but it is primarily b usefal car, the
. moat useful invention ot the human race thus far.' J .
If you haven't a. car, go get one. ; .
If you have several cars, go and see the latest. ..Entirely
.new Ideas have: been developed. Important improvements have
been added, not oaly without increasing price but often with
. reduction in-price. . : - .. '. ,:,;
The genius of the American manufacturer: has overcome
the high cost of labor and materials in America. ; Yeu can buy
here for your dollar twice the automobile value that yeu can
bay anywhere else In the world. I
v America leads tha world 11" automobiles, leads so far ahead
that there is no second.

THE HIGHWAYS IJELOXO 1
It has been said that the pedes-
trian possessed the righ-of-way by
reason of longer tenure of the
highway, but this is a fallacy. We
are living in an age of progress
in which the old customs are rap
idly being discarded for the newer
and more practical. Motorist and
pedestrian, alike, have equal
rights and equal 'responsibilities.
The pedestrian then, should be
educated as well as the driver.
and the logical place- to begin is
with the child; for the child pedes
trian of today is the driver of to
morrow; his habits of carefulness
cannot be too well grounded.

Local Dealer Is Highly En
thused Over Convention
Held Last Week
G. L. Newton, local Chevrolet
dealer, attended the Chevrolet
dealers and salesman convention in j
Portland last ' week and reports a ;
most enthusiastic - meeting where
the spirit of optimism prevailed.
The convention was held last
Monday afternoon in the Baker ;
theater followed by a banquet at
the Multnomah hotel in the eve
ning. There were about 1200
dealers and salesmen In attendance
and according : to Mr. ' Newton it
was a very successful convention.
The company outlined a change
in policy at this convention in
which they : will cooperate . and
work to the mutual advantage of
the dealers and. salesmen. .They
also outlined a solution to the used
car problem which is confronting
the dealers at the present time.
Mr. Newton, reports that at the
present time the 14 assembly
plants of the Chevrolet Motor com
pany are operating three eight
hour shifts per day and that they
are turning out 40,000 cars a
month. "This, just gives a little
idea ot the, demand for the new
Model K Chevrolet with the disc
clutch and the long underslung
springs and Duco finish. Up to
the present time we have not been
able to get cars enough to fill our
orders', added. Mr.-Newton. -
