THE 'DAILY CAPITAL JOT RNAL. SALEM. OREGON. SATURDAY, MAR. 25, 191 fi.
GET the facts on the operating cost
before you buy any automobile.
Find out the truth before not
after. And don't be satisfied with hear
say or a salesman's claims. The price of
gasoline is high; so is oil and there is sure
to be an increase in the cost of all tires.
So, what you want is the car that will
give you most miles per gallon of gasoline,
per gallon of oil and per set of tires.
Here are the facts proved by the Max
well stock touring car that recently set the
World's Motor Non-Stop Record:
Maxwell World' Non-Stop Record Fact
Miles without a motor stop 22,023
Average -miles per day (44 days) 500.6
Miles per gallon of ganolin:. 21.88
Mile3 per gallon of oil 400
Average miles per tire 9,871
Remember that this was a Non-Stop
Endurance Record in order to prove that
the Maxwell car was exceedingly sturdy,
reliable and trouble proof.
No attempt was made or could be made
to save gasoline, oil or tires. So these fig
ures merely indicate what would be possible
under ordinary driving conditions.
Right now we have a Maxwell we can
ieliver to you, and if you don't want to
?ay cash, make a deposit and pay the
Dalance as you use the car. But don't put
it off. We know the Maxwell factory can't
jet half enough freight cars to carry their
loubled output. Later on we may not
e able to supply you. But we can

NEW INVASION OF CANADA
Not by Armed Force But by United
States Car Manufacturers.
Detroit's Canadian annex, consisting
of the towns of Windsor, Ford, Wnlk
crville and Sandwich, Out., is attaining
considerable prominence as a motor niul
accessory manufacturing center. When
the British government, a few months
ago, placed a duty of HH 1-H per cent
on American cars the Automobile mak
ers of Knglnnd rejoiced in the belief
that a temporary, if not a permanent,
check had been placed upon the dread
ed invasion of the Yankee car. Amer
ican mtiiufacttirors did not resent this
seemingly hostile legislation in the
least. They, on the contrary, took u
friendly view of the British predica
ment and assumed that tho government
needed the money quite as much as the
American industry needed the trade.
I'Vw Americnn tankers Attempted to
force the volume of their business with
(Ireat Britain under the new conditions,
rather preferring to rest quietly con
tent with such orders ns they might re
ceive from their audits in consequence
of the natural demand Tor American
cars in spite of the new tariff.
Left Hole in Fence.
It has developed, however, that their
lordships of the British parliament left,
either in their hurry nnd press of more
important al'fairs or because of their
lack of knowledge of the topography of
the t'nitcd States, a fine opening by
which the resourceful Yankee has slip
ped through the new tariff fence and is
now building American cars, with his
own c.ipital and brains upon Britis'.i
soil - to be more .iccunito. just across
Hie I'ctroit river.
Literally without moving front the of
fices of their factories in Detroit, sev

Governor of Wyoming
Likes Convicts on Roads
Governor Kendrick, of Wyoming, U
an advocate of convict road work as
aa economical success and beneficial
to the convicts. Wyoming convicts
were emptoyea on tue roads during
the summer, of 1914. Wardea Alston
reports during that period they built
roads in six: counties nnd that the
councils expressed their satisfaction
by applying for more convicts for ti
next year. The warden further re
ports they did as good work as a hired
crew from the outside.
The state is responsible, Governor
Kendrick holds, for keening its con
victs healthy in mind and body. After
careful investigation of the road work
ho believes it is conuuetve to the in
terest of state and prisoners nnd
urges its further development. Gov
ernor and Mrs. Kendrick are' taking
great interest in the question or
prison reform. Mrs. Kendrick is act
ing a3 Wyoming representative of the
jail committee of the national com
mittee on prisons and has already se
cured excellent reports on a number
of the Wyoming jails. The commit
tee is basing constructive suggestions
on these reports and hopes that def
inite improvement will result from Mrs.
Kendrick 's activity.
On Yellowstone Highway.
The effort of the governor to pro
mote convict road work will hnve the
enthusiastic support of tho Yellow
stone Highway association. This as
sociation has assumed responsibility
for placing and keeping in good con
dition for automobile travel the road
from Cheyenne to the Yellowstone
park, and all roads entering the Yel
lowstone park through Wyoming.
The chairman has written the nation
al committee on prisons for sugges
tions as to methods of developing con
vict road work and he has been re
ferred to the work in Iowa, West Vir
ginia and Ohio as possible of adapta
tion to Wyoming.
The keen interest shown in so
many quarters in the road project is
assuring to those interested in the
welfare of the Wyoming convicts anr1
the summer of I'.tlG should see in
creased numbers at work on the roads
of the state. .
Will Teach Motorists
Care of Finish of Car
By a nation-wide campaign a cam
paign in which all other manufacturers
are welcome to join the Maxwell Mo
tor company, of Detroit, aims to edu
cate motorists to the fact that it is
within their power to prolong for years
the original glossy finish which their
cars bear at the time of purchase.
In furthering this campaign the Max
well company is enlisting the help of its
own army o'f distributors and salesmen.
It has also shown its own good fait li
in the matter by adding to the standard
equipment of each of its cars a can of
automobile polish, of a brand tested
and approved by competitive trial in its
"An automobile is finished with
greater care than most pianos," de
clares President Walter K. Flanders, of
the Maxwell company "Yet, it is free
ly exposed to the weather of all sea
sons. Often it is allowed to stand for
weeks without washing. Especially in
the case of popular-priced cars, it is
possible that the ow-.-r utterly fails to
recognize the need of an occasional use
of automobile polish as a finish preser
vative. "No combination of paint nnd varn
ish, no matter how well laid on or how
carefully hand-rubbed can survive
rough treatment indefinitely, without
losing its elasticity nnd luster. A good
polish is essential, especially in seasons
of extreme temperatures.
"We hope that our plan of starting
each Maxwell buyer with a supply of
polish will demonstrate the value of
this important, factor in the care of his
car. Our interests are mutual. A small
amount of time, spent In polishing the
car will greatly increase the wner's
satisfaction and will retain fhe value
of his car. The good looks of the car
will reflect credit on its finish and wil;
help us and our dealers."
In furtherance of the "Kecyyour-motor-car-looking
like-new " idoii," the
Maxwell forces have featured it nt all
recent sales conferences. Dealers are
requested to make especial efforts nt in
structing owners o'f cars. It is urged
that, with the present degree of me
chanical perfection, it is no longer
necessary to devote special attention to
teaching owners problems of operation,
and that they are therefore in better
position than ever to learn how to cure
for finish and appearance.
Nearly Forty Acres In.
Great Reo Factory
"We had a laugh at the expense of
our publicity man the other day," sail
K, C. Rueschaw, sales manager of the
Reo Motor Car company, "and hir
chagrin was pitiful to see when we told
him that, instead of over-stating, in ac
cordance with the traditions of hi
craft, he had been grossly under-stating
one important -fact in connection with

ads I noticed that the publicity man
had changed his tune to some extent
from last year, and was now saying.
"the big 30 aore Reo factories" instead
of the "25 acre plants" about which
he talked a year ogo.
"Of course I knew that hundreds C
workmen had been busy during the past
12 months making additions on all side?
of the Reo 'factories, but I wondered
whether he had the facts straight or
might be -stretching it a bit.
"Not that it matters particularly to
a publicity man, but we sales managers
have to be more fastidious about these
"I took the matter up with our su
perintendent of construction and was
somewhat surprised myself at what J
"I not only found that his "DO acre
plant" statement was justified, bu
that he was grossly libeling the Reo
company and not keeping up with the
growth of the concern.
"After we had figured out tin
amount of space, by the various mew
additions to the Reo automobile and thr
Reo Motor Truck plants, we found to
our amazement that they now cover
very nearly 40 acres to be absolutely
exact, 39.23 acres.
"While it is really 12 years, it seems
only yesterday that the entire Reo fac
tory was encompassed in one three-story
building, 60 feet wide by 250 feet long.
"Of course I noticed that of late l'i
feel considerably more 'fatigued after a
walk through the plant, even though I
have never covered all the departments
in any one tour. I attributed that to
coming of old age, however, instead
of to the real reason. I felt better and
younger after our architect had figured
out for .me that to traverse every aisle
in every department of the Reo factor
ies would mean a walk of nearly lfj
"Now I realize why we Reo fc'
have so little need for golf. A waJI
through the Keo factories is equal t
more than two lS-hole games and to
tell you the truth, I have found it con
siderably more exciting."

Leading New York
Suffragette Praises Saxon
Miss Alice Snitzer Burke Has Highest
Regard For Both the Saxon Car
"I not only wish I could shout this
'from the housetops' but I wish I could
roll it through the streets, the courtesy
of the Saxon Motor Car Company. This
was our suffrage year in New York and
I decided that an automobile in which
to tour the state was an absolute neces
sity. One' day I read your advertise
ment in the 'New York Tribune' and
immediately went down to your New
York Branch and laid my case before
them. They met me on a good business
proposition, well within my means so I
ordered a Saxon ' Pour' finished in
brilliant yellow. In a few days, exact
ly as promised, the car was delivered
and at the same time promised to give
me service, at any time. Now 1 can
truthfully say they have been 'True'
to their word at all times. If you
have ever had any dealings with a
Suffragist you know she can always ask
for things, because that is the only
method sno has of ever getting any
thing. Well, I am an ardent suffragist,
so 1 have not failed to ask and there
has never been a time when the Saxon
Company has been too busy to run my
car into the service station at a niohent's
notice and put it ni good condition for
a long trip in the counry. They have
yet to toll me that T will have to wait
until to-morrow, doubtless they under
stand that delays, especially to suffra
gists, are really disastrous.
"Time and again I have asked for
both large and small cars to put in
our parades and my requestg have al
ways been granted promptly and driv
ers furnished with the cars. In our
last great parade they furnished! me six
Saxon 'Sixes' which enabled mo to
take care of twenty-four women who
otherwise could not have gone.
The Saxon organization has not only
helper! me, but they have always treat
ed all women owners with the same big
brotherly interest that I have always
found in their buildings and on tho
road. It is because of their untiring1
efforts to give satisfaction that there
are many suffrage Saxoncttes through
out the country.
"If I go into a store or salesroom
once and theyNarc indifferent if they
do not meet me on afooting of equal
ity, I do not go back to that store if I
can help it. I found what I wanted
and more than I expected when I be
gan dealing with tho Saxon Motor Car
Company of New York."
