A new form of automobile contests that promises to spread from coast to coast has been invented by members of automobile sales agencies here. It is an assembly contest, in which 12 trained men from rival sales ugencies vie against each other in piecing together two ma chines,, which have been previously disjointed into as .nny component parts us possible.

His company, Mr. Fair burn savs, has been aiming to keep its prices at a normal level, and succeed ed in doing so until the genernl increase in match constituents compelled a revis ion of prices. Not only is there, a vital shortage of chlorate of potassium, but boxwood, gums, necessary chemicals and other materials have gone up, tho not so alarmingly as the German pro duct. Asked as to whether or not there would be further a"nces In match prices, Mr. Vairbnrn said: "It depends entirely on the duration of the war." Since making that statement, reports have beeu placed in circulation that pricce are due to another advance.

The feat was one of the most notable in the annals of western nutomobiling. The Maxwell was sent over the peril ous trail entirely on its own power ami the help rendered by its crew; every foot of the way was over the Lincoln Highway; obstacles apparently impos- will be for carss'',' to surmount were overcome one alter another, and tooay tne .Maxwell stands under a shed at Tallac as posi tive proof of the efficiency of the modem automobile in besting grim Winter in her most strenuous mood. Members of the Maxwell crew faced disaster a score of times before they reached their goal. In many places the snowdrifts hail piled up to a height of more than twenty feet, sloping off to a sheer drop into canyons nnd down mountain sides. Had a slip or skid oc curred while the Maxwell was shoot ing over these it would have meant, a hasty termination to the trial blazing enterprise; but the motor never fulter- ed il tne drivers nnn,i ..cut weaa- VIM 11, ililU Hie i:ihi it o ..;..vn - - .safety.

In order to discourage any Doubt- j iug Thomases who might suggest that the Maxwell had not reached Tallac, members of the party left their ma-, chine at the lake and returned home by launch, machine, font and train. At tiie end of the trip the car showed scarcely a mark, aside from a few scratches on tho glossy body. The en gino and mechanism made the entire run without a single hitch, nnd even the tires Wood the strain without fal tering. Lightweight Cars Better for Ail-Around Service Light weight ill motor enrs is lie-j coming more and more an attraction to j the motorist, nceording to l.loyd L. Ryan, distributor for Snxon Motor cars. "The weight of an automobile," he j snvs, "is the thing that people B'' among the 'first queries concerning any make. "When the light cars began to go through the places where the big eni" tuck, the nnldie sat up and took no tice." said Mr. Rvan. "When the ligh' cars continued to operate with their same power and reliability niter trips over mads that, were considered im iiassible, the theories mat this kind of travel would ruin a light car were dis pelled nnd the public began to see t it is possible and also policy to con struct a light motor car which has the endurance of the old-time heavy auto mobile. "No motorist, much as he may enjoy the idea of driving a car of the size that makes it comparable to a trai-'ion engine, likes to be mmnoned In a mod-1 ilv road and have to call on a renin i Horses to get mm our. t um like to have to route-his country touring I with a view to the road over which he must go and not the scenery that he wants to see. "Like every man, he wants what hej wants when he wants it. And the way for him to get that in motoring is to ' have a light yet durable motor enr, j with a motor of power that can carry him over the worst roads in an easy i manner. In the manufacture of the Snxnn motor ears especial attention is paid to lightness. The "Six" is mi except ionally light car for its power and size and vet workmanship or quality of mat erials have not been slighted to lessen Hie luiiu wciui. "Stability, power and excellence of design have been inudo the first prin ciples and these have been obtained along with the lightness. Light weight of course, menus a saving on tire ex pense. It's tho heavy enrs thnt wear out the tires and this item alone worth consideration. "In Saxon cars, along with lightne-ss nnd stability, there is economy in opera tion.
