proved fatal, was entirely unprcvent
able Drs. Anderson and Stlmson of the
United States Public Health Service
have been called on for a detailed report

It first came under their observation till

Since the earlier observations of Ben

ment shortly after the Injection of the

ailment into tubercular meningitis and

Is For Automobile
nd Only the Live
YOU'VE BEEN HOPING and praying for years for
the kind of car you thought Rome big manufac
turer ought to build, and that you knew you could
THAT IS TO SAY, a light touring car of about 23
horse power, made so well the maintenance cost
would be as little or less than any other car on
the market; one that would look the part; act the
part; and yet sell in the neighborhood of $700.
THAT WAS ABOUT THE PRICE you set
YOU'VE ASKED for that kind of a car, insisting
that it be one the owner wouldn't feel he ought
to leave in the alley so the neighbors wouldn't
see it I
A CAR FOR THE KIND OF OWNER who wants
his money's worth in looks as well as perform
ance, and who doesn't care to be pointed out as
one who bought the cheapest car.
SUCH A BUYER, you've told us, would pay a few
dollars more to have a car that was worth more
than the difference.
YOU'VE KNOWN that there were only two, or pos
sibly three, concerns in the world that could
make such a car at such a price. Millions of cap
ital, and plants equipped with special automatic
machines throughout for making every last part
of the car, are necessary.
AND DOUBTLESS IT HAS occurred to you that
the reorganized Maxwell Motor Company was
in an ideal position to produce such a car hav
ing the capital, the plants, the organization
and a clean slate That is to say, plants ready for
the work and no old models or material in
course of construction.
AND, YOU'VE HEARD WHISPERINGS that
that was the sensation the new Maxwell Motor
Company had up its sleeve.
WELL, WE HAVE and we've tried to keep the
details from getting out because we didn't want
to start a stampede of buyers until we were
ready to supply the cars. But you can't send test
cars all over the country as we had to do to
prove up this product to our own satisfaction
without starting trade gossip. And trade gossip
goes fast and far. It isn't always accurate, but
it goes just the same.
WE ARE STILL DETERMINED to withhold all
detailed specifications and the real price from the
public until we are ready to deliver a few thou
sand cars or at least until demonstrators are in
the hands of our dealers.
PAST EXPERIENCE with stampedes of the kind
that will certainly ensue when the features of
this car are generally known, teaches us that our
plan is right.
BUT MEANTIME and here's why we are publish
ing this ad. to dealers the information is leak
ing out; dealers are coming to Detroit wanting
THAT'S ALL RIGHT but we want to start right
with this proposition. It's going to be the big
gest, greatest thing this organization has ever
done and you know the men who comprise the
Maxwell organization of designers, production,
sales and advertising experts from Mr. Flan
ders down have done the biggest things that
have ever been done in this industry.
WE WANT TO START RIGHT. We want to se
lect the best dealer in each town the one who
has the best standing locally, and the kind of fel
low who will take hold of this product, not for a
day, but for his whole future to go along and
stay with us while we both make money and at
the same time giving the buyer more for his
money than he can possibly get elsewhere,
ITS A QUANTITY PROPOSITION and when
you see the car you'll say it is a permanent prop
osition. THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR
that's what we've been aiming at in producing
this car. Coupled with our $1,085 "35-4" and our
$2,35050-6, here's the greatest line in the world
and any maker who tries to compete, either in
quality or price, will have to go some.
NOW HERE'S WHAT INTERESTS YOU at this
moment. We can't very well refuse to sign up
with the other dealer who comes from your ter
ritory. We appreciate his coming it shows he
is on the alert. That's always a good sign.
BUT HE MAY NOT BE THE BEST man for us to
tie to how are we going to know unless you
come and tell us?
80 WE DECIDED to tell all dealers that we are
ready to contract for these 25's as well as the 35
and the rest of the line.
WE'VE ARRANGED to have all our District Man
agers in Detroit this week (April Mth to 19th).
It will bti the first glimpse they've had at this 25
car themselves and you may imagine they nrc
as eager to see and ride in it ws you are.
THE DISTRICT MANAGER of your territory will
be here at the main office so you can get right
down to business with him if you are on the
EVERY DEALER IN AMERICA KNOWS th
heads of this organization. You all know Walter
E. Flanders. He haa always given his buycra
more and forced his competitors to give theirs
more, than they wanted to.
HE IT WAS WHO FIRST SAID, "Magneto In
cluded, of course." He who first put a "fore
door" body on a thousand dollar car after cut
ting the price of the most popular and the great
est $1,250 car to $1,000. It was Flanders who
forced all othe makers to equip with demount
able rims, by doing it first. He who said, "same
electric starter as the Peerless," on a $2,350 car,
when most $5,000 cars were still without starter.
AND FLANDERS HAS DONE MORE for the
dealer than any other. He it was who five years
ago originated the "sliding scale of discounts" to
stop the gouging of the little fellow the small
dealer, who in the aggregate, disposes of 80 per
cent of the product. He, who sent a copy of nis
dealer's contract to every dealer in the United
States to show that all were treated alike, while
other makers were "dickering" with theirs. Yea,
you know Flanders and you know why other
dealers don't approve of his methods. Good rea
son, isn't there?
AND YOU KNOW KTcGUIRE if you don't happen
to know him personally, you certainly know him
by reputation. Wm. F. McGuire is known in
trade circles as the former production manager
of the Ford Motor Company the man who
seemed to create cars by miraculous methods.
Mr. McGuire as the "man behind" isn't so well
known to dealers, but you've heard it said if
there's one man in the industry who can produce
cars in greater quantities than any other, it
is McGuire. Come and meet him he'll show
you the "25" himself.
E. LE ROY PELLETIER you all know personally.
You know his advertising, and its instantaneous
results. "Roy's" advertising has sold more auto
mobiles than that written by any other man. He
knows you, knows your problems and knows
your territory. Besides handling our national
campaign, Mr. Pelletier will, furnish you with
copy to run locally md, when occasion requires,
he will be glad to write special copy to meet your
YOU'LL MEET TWO NEW FACES Walter M.
Anthony, Comptroller, and C. A. Forster, Com
mercial Manager, in charge of sales.
MR. ANTHONY IS THE MAN you'll deal with at
the financial end and you'll like him. He's a
rare combination of keen business acumen and
royal good fellowship. In short, he is a business
man of breadth and character and poise and a
saving sense of humor. You'll like Anthony
and that makes business dealings a lot more
AND YOU'LL LIKE FORSTER. He comes from
the Burroughs Adding Machine Company. We
don't know it all yet in the automobile business,
you know, and tho' you'll look with suspicion on
a new man in this industry, that impression will
be dispelled in the first five minutes you are with
Forster and then you'll agree that he, as well
as Anthony, "belongs" in this organization of
specialists and experts.
AND YOU'LL FIND in the other officers and in the
factory, not scores, but hundreds of men you've
known for years experts, specialists all, and
you'll conclude that if the kind of car you've
been wanting the kind you'd design and make
yourself if you had the capital and the facilities
-can be made, then this organization can make
it to the Queen's taste and yours.
THE CAR IS HERE ready to see and to ride in. De
liveries in quantities will begin in June. You've
been looking for this car for years come to De
troit on the first train; see and try it out for your
selfand tell us why you think you can sell more
of them in your territory than any other dealer.
NOW MULL THIS OVER: You must realize you
who have watched the trend of things that this
automobile business will gradually narrow down
to a few big ones. It will be a contest between
TODAY, WHEN MARGINS OF PROFIT to the
maker are so small that ninety per cent of all the
buyer pays goes into actual automobile value and
service; when, in other words, the profit per car
is very small, only those makers who have the
hnancial backing, the facilities and the experi
ence necessary to produce cars in quantities, can
WE'LL TELL YOU FRANKLY that we are going
to be very careful in selecting our representa
tives, but once we've signed up with a dealer it
will be our policy to stick to him as long as he
is eighty per cent plus in other words, as long
as he does anywhere near right by us and by his
