Trumm Claims I That New
I Coach is Roomy! First
in Serviceability :
The Palge-Detrol Motor car
company in an effort to present
the newest and smartest coach in
history announces through Mr. W.
H. Trumm, manager of Trumm
Motor Car company, lial distri
butors, a new five-passenger
Jewett Six model!
In designing . this coach, the
Paige company gave every consi
deration to three outstanding es
sentials demanded by the" motorist
first: ' roomy " comfort; second:
smartness; third: serviceability.
Pointing out r how completely
successful the company was in
developing these three' require-
ments, Mr. Trumm paid:
"Roomy comfort jcould only be
obtained in the new coach the
same size as sedan models. It must
have ample" room tor five and to
fill every need of theK average
family must also h'af e space in the
tonneau for packages." ;
"'The rear seat Was placed far
enough behind the front seats so
that the passengers in the rear
may stretch - comfortably. ' Even
after, stretching it lis possible to
carry package behind the front
seats without interfering with the
leg-room, in the rear seat. ; v
f'Wide doors permit passengers
in! the fear seat getting in .and
oujt without requiring th 'riders
in j the front seat to leave their
seats. " The width of the doors is
36 - Inches. '
"The lines and big windows in
the side and-rear give to the ex
terior the beauty that makes this
new model the smartest coach on
the market. -The upper corners
of j the back , have a ball end: This
rounded smoothness fits in with
the radiator and hood design. A
final touch of artistry is given to
the design by a- belt holding,- here
