THE DAILY CAPITAL .JO" RNAL, SALEM. OREGON. SATURDAY, APRIL 15. 1916.
A cheque may be worth no more than the scrap of
paper on which it is written. It may be worth a
million. Its value depends solely upon the financial
responsibility of the man who signs it. The mere
signature is sufficient to credit or discredit its worth.
Public confidence is a matter of reputation. The
monogram on the radiator of the Six-:)0 is the en
dorsement of the Chalmers Motor Company. The
motor buying public has come to accept it as a guar
antee of sterling worth in a motor car.
This endorsement has stood behind every car that
has left the Chalmers shops. It will continue to
stand as long as Chalmers Motor Cars are built.
The Chalmers Six-:;0 with 3400 R. P. M. engine
sells for $1215 f. o. b. Salem. This is $225 lower than
the minimum price ever placed on a Chalmers
product. The monogram on the radiator of the Six
I'.O is just as strong a guarantee of Quality as it was
on the radiator of a $:000 Chalmers limousine.
Long years of experience in motor car building,
quantity production and ultra modern factory
facilities have enabled us to place this Chalmers en
dorsement on a $1215.00 car.
The Chalmers Six-nO has made a strong impression
with the people of Salem who are looking for fine
points in auto construction. On display at

Luncheon kits have not been aug

but our own manufacturers have added
to their lines. A set has two cases,

carries all the fittings, bottles, jars and
dry foods, while the other has a small
ice tank in the center with food con
