The widening popularity of
Chandler's 1921 line, and the in
creasing number of applications
for territorial franchise represen
tation, has' necessitated the addi
tion of several new special repre
sentatives to the Chandler field
This is true not only in the
United States and Canada, but in
the markets of the world as well.
It Is common knowledge through
out the industry that Chandler has
enjoyed an excellent export busi

the company's volume production.
Today export shipments alone ac
count for better than 15 per cent
of the total nroduction. with a
gradual healthy gain each year in
total units shipped oversea..
Paul Heinen is the newest addi:
tion to the Chandler field force in
export circles. Heinen was edu
cated in Belgium, France, Ger
many and' England, -and received
his technical training at the Hag

For the past 15 years, he , has
traveled throughout the world,

nine years as the Cuban, South

Whippet's Unique Construc
tion Gives Car Many Un
With the sale of the Whippet
Six reaching new high , marks
monthly, Willys-Overland dealers
declare this popularity is partly
due to the car's unusual riding
qualities which are brought about
mainly through the adoption of
the low center of gravity, idea in
the construction of the chassis and
body. .The use of this design, en
gineers point out places the
weight of the car close to the
ground and thus eliminates the
vibration and top sway which is
noticeable In cars where the body
rides higher in the air.
The low center of gravity con
struction is a noticeable feature
this year in all products of the
all models following the success of
the four-cylinder Whippet which
made its first appearance nearly
a year ago. Since that time many
other automobile manufacturers
have"adopfed the low swung de
sign admitting its superiority over
the old'method of construction.

Both Klngsley and Stevenson
have been in the automotive field
for a number of years and are well
acquainted throughout the trade.
Klngsley, who will travel East
era Canada for Chandler, spent
four years in the Orient with
headquarters at Manila, as Asst.'
General Manager of the Luneta
Motor Co., 'Maxwell and Chrysler
distributing agency. He was also
connected with the Wills' St
Claire factory branch In Cleveland
as general manager before joining
the Chandler organization.
Stevenson is Touted in the
Western Canadian territory where
he has a wide following in trade
circles. Before coming to Chand
ler, Stevenson was sales manager
for O. S. Chapln at Calgary, hand

With a big buying season for

that the automobile Industry is

Ver Linden. "Some eten say that
the automobile manufacturers are
too optimistic. t
"But, the fact remains that
more people can afford cars than
ever before, and it! "is generally
known that it costs much less to
own and operate a, car today than
it did in 1919.
"Everyone who wants a car in
this country hasn't bought one yet.
A lot of original sales are being
made every day. Then, think of
the thousands of drivers who
bought cars a few years ago who
need new ones. And think of
your friends who used to have one
car, who now have two or more.

"If the average motorist could
spend a week in our experimental
department he would' see things
that would open his eyes," said
Holmes. "He would find a large
force of men exclusively engaged
in actually punishing machines.
He would see these men checking
vital units under all sorts of road
conditions, riding cars at fast
speed to determine just how much
punishment a particular unit can
stand, climbing steep hills at vary
ing speeds to' determine the re
action of the power plant under
distinct climbing conditions."
Acceleration tests are made at
various speeds and checked by
split-second stop watches, from
both flying and standing starts.
Deceleration performance tests
braking efficiency are also con
ducted with stop watch tests.
Cars are frequently taken to the
Indianapolis speedway by Chand
ler experimental engineers, to be
driven with ' the wide open throt
tle for hours without a stop. After
this punishing performance th
entire car is dissembled and each
unit is examined minutely so that
the exact amount of wear on all
operating surfaces, . such as bear
ings, etc., may be determined.
wnue It might seem a waste
to some people to actually put
men to work to punish cars, it is
by. this practice that we are ah
able to foresee and eliminate any
weaK spot . in our product."
