There was considerable "American"

The car used by "Miss Washington"
was a beautiful five-passenger
sport model of battleship gray, with
blue disk wheels and nickel-plated
finishings throughout, which attracted
a great deal of attention. It
formed a fitting conveyance for the
little maid, who has now been officially
pronounced the most beautiful
girl In the United States.

which so generously offered the use
of this sport model, as well as the
seven-passenger American Balanced

\Tube Bags Preserve
Resiliency of Rubber
Inner tubes are usually packed in
the factory In wax paper. This
paper will preserve the resiliency
and elasticity of the rubber, but it
won't protect it when thrown carelessly
Into the tool box of a car.
TJie Jolting of the car causes the
tube to chafe against the box and
thrusts It against the sharp edges
of the tools.
The tube that Is always ready for
the roadside emergency Is the one
that is wrapped In cloth or paper,
or better yet encased In an inexpensive
tube bag. s

INTEREST IN AUTOS S
C. B. Voorhis Says Active J
Market Is Indicated in
Rural Section. ,
Indications point to an active fall ]
automobile market In those sections <
of the country where State and '
county fairs have already been held.
With the coming of September the J
fair season is at its height and <
practically every one of the leading 1
manufacturers is expected to exhibit <
one or more models of his car. 1
Dealers who for years have partici
pated in exhibitions of this kind i
report that interest in the automo- j
bile booths this year is keener than ,
in former years. 1
"There always is more or less ,
'shopping around' on the part of the ,
public during a State or county ,
fair," said Charles B. Voorhis, vice
president of the Nash Motors Com- 1
pany, "and that is ?s it should be. t
This year the buyer is perhaps more ,
thorough than usual in his inspec- '
tion of the various cars on display.
"The public aiso, accbrding to reports
received by us from various
sections of the country, seems par- 4
ticularly concerned regarding the 1
standing of the dealer and his p<*icy 1
with reference to service. That too, '
is as it should be and the automobile 1
dealer who has built his business ?
on a sound foundation and who has
borne in mind constantly that serv- <
ice to the customer is the corner- <
stone of that foundation, is the man *
who is looking to the fall and win- l
ter season with every confidence !
