: MAXWELL GETS BIG
i MUNICIPAL ORDER
Tlic .Miixwi'll .Motor company closed
a contract lint week with the muni
cipal govei -anient u Kansas City tor
27 new motor cars. The order was
placed by William C. Weaver, purchas
ing agent for Kansas City, after he hail
made an investigation extending over
u field of cars of various makes. He
found the Maxwell best adapted to ihe
needs of the exacting municipal service,
because of its durability, its dependa
bility and its great economy in opera
tion. Another factor that entered into the
closing of the contract was the prompt
delivery guaranteed by the Maxwell
company. A promise- was made that
the cars would lie turned over in
three days and this promise was fill
filed to the letter.
Some Commercial Bodies.
In the consignment are 21 runabouts
and a touring car, the remainder being
chassis for special conimcrpiul bodies.
The growing popularity of the Max
well (diassis in the commercial field!
was another element that entered into j
the transaction. These chassis are de- 1
livered all ready for the tops to lie
fitted on. There is no extra wiring or j
adjusting to be dime. The tops may
be made according to the specifications
and requirements of the owner. Many
merchants are finding this a most con
venient method of purchasing cars for
Knows Maxwell Economy.
Last year, Kansas City used a num
ber of motorcars of a make other than
Maxwell in its municipal service. For
several months, Mr Weaver, the city's
purchasing agent, has been keeping n
(dose tub on gasoline consumption and
he knows a good deal, of what the
Maxcwll can accomplish along this
very important line. He wisely con
cluded that the use of Maxwell earn ,
for the city service would cut down
the municipal gasoline bill to sui ap

The Olds Motor Works has been a
quantity producer of automobiles com
paratively a short time. For the ma
jor portion of its career it manufact
ured only the most expensive curs, and
in limited numbers.
In 11)15, however, it began to pro
duce a light car, the success of which
was instantaneous. Mince then it has
developed two imprived models, a four
and an eight, with rapidly increased
The basis of recent Olds success is
held to be founded on the incorporation
in a light car of the features of lux
ury and refinement formerly identi
fied with the heavy Olds product.
In the opinion of heads of the concern
the appeal of this class of car is con
stantly increasing. To quote .lay V.
Hull, associate executive of the Olds,
"With millions of automobiles in use
it. is only natural that there should ex
ist a large class of buyers who are ex
tremely well versed in the detail of
motor ear construction and niceties of
finish and performance
"In the selecting of a car, it is no
longer the discriminating few, but the
discriminating ninny who judge,
"It is for this class of buyers that
the Oldsniobile has been especially de

I the (lernians at all times to locate ap- i

the British cruisers and destroyers to

i warning of the approach of the dread

numbered squadron. Then came w ith

Tho attention of the automobile
public has been drawn at various
times this spring to notable mileage
performances of Maxwell cars. In
view of the upward trend in the price
of gasoline, a great deal of importance
is attached to the after-cost of auto
mobiles and the officials of the Mux
well Motor Company take great pride
in the records tnnr nave neeu ui.iuc

Above are listed some of the more
remarkable of I lie series of economy
marks registered by Maxwells. These
are taken from a greater list of econ
omy records. I'lisolicited testimonials
to the high mileage records made by
Maxwell cars are constantly coining to
the Maxwell offices at Detroit.

The most encouraging feature of the
economy runs is that the highest
mileage" was obtained in the more re

made on Mav :!rd. On that, day, Hf.y

This run was observed by newspaper

Highway Association and the San Diego
This run was a little better than the
mark made by the same driver in
Michigan early in April, when he
drove a stock car and made an even 44
miles on a gallon. Oa that day, the
weather conditions were unfavorable,
the temperature being close to freez

the mastery of the sea is broken. This
is the Herman view resulting from the
Victory of the fleet of Viee-Adiniral
Scheer, which has given the kaiser's
navy as brilliant a tradition as has been
written on the pages of any naval pow
er. Flags were displayed everywhere to
day in celebration of the clash with the
British high seas 'fleet and the Herman
success. .Schools were dismissed, special
services of celebration and thanksgiv
ing were called and Herman enthusiasm
was aroused as at no time since tjie
kaiser'S army was drawing near Taris
early in the war.
Although no official expression wan
obtainable, it was evident that the sea
victory is regarded here as another step
toward a possible early peace. De
feat of the British fleet the first time
it felt Germany's naval power; the
fact that Herman territory is free of
the enemy; that Belgium and northern
France are successfully held, while the
F.vncli and British lines have remained
stationary for the past year, and the
crown prince is hammering at the gates
of Verdun these points were cited as
answers to the allied demands that Ger
