Ycu can't make a mistake If you buy a ear of estab

I'copio of the United States havo spent millions of
dollars for motor cars. Thoso people really havo
made purchasing an easy mutter for you. when you
stop to think of It. Why not profit by their exper

car. Our cars lmvo made good for years. Thousands
uf owners havo proved "them for you. Think what
they havo dono to prove thcnuiclvcs.
In two seasons of motor contests Chalmers-Detroit

that was the best way to prove our cars.
A man might say ho was tho best Marathon runner
In the world. Ho might (-how you that he had a

Into competition ngalnat other Marathon runnors and
defeated them, you would havu n right to doubt his
claim of being tho best.
The enmo Is truo of cars. It Is easy to claim that
n certain car Is the best car made, or that it i the
host rcr nt the price. It Is ensy to advance plausible
orgumrnls to support such claims, but the one unas
