In connection with McNamara's per

that a Maxwell touring, car made the

The Lake Tahoe Eun.
The Maxwell gained added glory by
breaking the trail to Lake Tahoe,
making the run three full weeks before
the earliest arrival of any previous
This performance is nil the more re
markable in that the snowfall in the
Sierra Nevada mountains during the
past winter was the heaviest since
18S). The Maxwell made the trip to
California's most fnmous mountain
lake without any aid save that furn
ished by its own engine and its hardy
crew of four men.
In maiiv places the snow was piled
fifteen feet deep, lint the car came
through without being buried once.
The success of the venture was due
in large part to the ability of the car
to ride the heavy drifts iustead of
breaking through them, as was the
ease with heavier curs in past seasons.
More Economy Tests.
Mr. McNamara's latest economy test,
was observed by representatives of the
Lincoln Highway Association and the

WHILE the occasional buyer delves deeply into technical talk, the I
average motorist consults first, Appearance, second,. Performance. I
"What will this car do?" is by far the most pertinent question placed
bv the maioritv of show visitors.
A ride in a Chalmers Six-30 will convince you beyond a shadow of a t
doubt that this Chalmers Six is thejast word in power, getaway and t
economy of operation. From five to twenty-five miles per hour in less than ten I
seconds' time is the daily record of the Six-30 in the hands of owners. The car can
be throttled down to four miles an hour in traffic and has an instant getaway at X
traffic crossings. No Chalmers Six ever, built has exceeded this Chalmers in flex-
ih tv.
An economical car, it averages 16 to 19 miles per gallon of gasoline on straight- ;:
ways and from 14 to 17 miles per gallon on hills and in rough going. With gasoline ; ;
prices on the upward trend, no longer does the prospective motorist disregard
t economy features of his new car. You will find in this newest Chalmers, a six- j
cylinder car more saving of fuel than the best four-cylinder car you ever drove, l
See this car on demonstration, let us take you for a drive.

Gompers Begins National
Campaign for Better
State Labor Laws
Washington, May 27. oanincl Gom
pers, president of the American Feder
ation of Labor, is'on his way to Chica
go today to inaugurate a nation-wide
campaign tor legislation making state
1 ibor laws conform to the labor pro
visions of the Clayton anti-trust law.
The Clayton law now provides that
labor is not a "commodity nor nn ar
ticle of commerce." It effectually
prevents prosecution of labor men for
attempting, as they see fit, to try to'
get siorter hours or increased pay.
Gompers has prepared a model lull,
which he will try to b.we passed by
state legislatures.
Gompers will speak at' mass meet
ings of state labor men in four states
Illinois, Indiana, vjii'io and Michigan
He will speak at Chicago tomorrow, at
Fort Wayne deeontion day, at Colum
bus Wednesday (on May 31) and at
Detroit .lune 2. In a statement to the
United Press just before his departure
he said:
obtained amendments to the Clayton I T
act pointing out that labor is not a I
commodity nor irticle of commerce.
This frees labor from the applications
oi the provisions of the anti-trust laws
and from judicial interpretation of the
laws. Under this law a suit such as
that against the hitters of Danbury
will not be maintained. The rights of
workers to exercise their normal activ
ities for their own protection ami wel
fare have been mado lawful.
"The addition to the Clayton law
corrects the abuse of the injunctive
writ and Tirovidcs a jury trial in ny
case of alleged contempt where tlie;X
"contempt" was committed outside of
"This, however, is a federal law,
and covers only federal courts. State
laws in many instances make organiza
tions of co-workers ameinble to prose
cution. The abuse of the writ of in
junction within the state still holds.;
"Largely the campaign will be car
ried On bv state federations. In Penn
sylvania, Georgia, West Virginia, Mich
igan, Wisconsin and (alirofnia, Jegis- j
latures have icted already to mnke the,
demand for this legislation paramount .
in their political activities.
"In Illinois. Indiana, Ohio, Aew
York, Oregon and Iowa active prepara
tion is being made to make the bill an
issue in the state ennpaign.
"The campaign will be inaugurated,
at Chicago tomorrow, (May 28) at a
statewide conference. Representatives!
of all state labor will be present.
"Besides the campaign in those.
states organizers will carry the fight to
other states particularly to Vtuh and
