It's 011I3 human for a man to feel proud of his possessions. To own something which everyone else
recognizes as supremely desirable helps mightily to make life better worth living.
Ownership of a motor car confers a distinction of this sort. But the distinction is infinitely greater
-when that motor car belongs to a family that has class, reputation, history.
To own a champion motor car should be the aim of every wise buyer.
It's pleasant to know that a champion motor car is not nccessnrilv an expensive one. You can buy
amE-M-F "30" for $1335 or a Flanders "20" for .$1000.
Each is the champion of its class.
The motoring world is still ringing with the marvelous feat of the three E-M;F "30" cars that fin
ished one, two three, in the Tiedemau Tropjiy race a,t: Savannah the biggest event of the year for cars of
that class. " .

they stand supreme in speed, strength, safety aiid
More convincing still is the satisfactory service

An E-M-F "30" or a Flanders "20" is the sort of
car its owner loves to talk about.

' Great Lake Desert of western Utah
'-"iiB public watering piaee.x. In order

this new conservation measure, and
jLhe boon it will be to the small stock
""rnd'cr it is neci"irv tn iimlorstunil
&"OTmething of conditions in the semi
Brt Hrld srrazintr reerions of the far west.
There are in the Bock Mountain and
ever, stock cannot live without water,
and unless there are watering places
available to a stock owner it is im
possible for him to utilize the range.
As a result of these conditions it
has come to be common practice in
some parts of the west for a cattle
or sheep outfit to obtain possession
of the few scattered water holes in
a given territory and by this means
to monopolize the grazing privilege
almost jus effective as It actually
owned every acre of the area. In
consequence the small stock owner
acific coast states many large aras j has been placed at a serious disad
vantage and In many localities lias
bcvn forced out of business.
Officials of the interior department
who have been studying conditions
in the public land states have for a
long time advocated legislation to
reguite the control of grazing on
the public lands in order to prevent
these and other abuses, such as the
overstocking of the range. Pending
such congressional action they have
sought some means to prevent the
monopolization of the public lands
through this control, of the watering
places and have found it in the with
drawal act passed in 1010 upon the
recommendation of President Taft.
This law provides that lands may
be reserved by the president for
f excellent grazing land in which the
number of ptaces where water for
man or beast can be obtained is -re--llitively
small. Sometimes the short-
F"' at distance between water holes is
ttjn; twenty, -thirty,- or even fifty
lin es, borne or these watennir nlaces
are springs, some of them .ponds of
line water, some of them small
itreams flowing down from adjacent
hills or mountains and becoming
lost on the edge of the desert. The
s lands in large part support a growth
: off grass and small brush which is
excellent fodder for horses, -cattle.
Tr sheep, and since practically all
jiese areas are government land they
tre "free range' for whomsoever may
Eire to graze his stock thereon. How-
water sites, irrigation, classification
of lands,- or other public purposes.
The president feels that the setting
aside of these watering places for
public use is a distinct and benefi
cial public purpose, in harmony not
only witli the letter but with the
spirit of the law.
By withdrawing these tracts ac
quisition by intorests which desire
through them to control or monop
olize grazing on any particular por
tion of tne public domain will be
made impossible. The tracts thus
reserved will be held open to the
public and any cattleman or sheep
man or horse naiser, whether he is
rich or poor, the owner of a few or
many hundreds or even thousands
of head of stock may use these pub
lic watering places whenever he sees
fit and will thus he enabled to avail
himself of the grazing privileges to
which any citizen is entitled on the
unappropriated lands of the public
domain. Moreover, should congress
at any future time decide to pass a
grazing law the retention of these
watering places in public ownership
will make the enactment of a sat
isfactory law impossible: whereas
if the" water should pass into private
hands the framing of a law provid
ing for the control of grazing on the
public domain would be useless, be
cause the law itself would be in
operative. The, present action will really be
beneficial to both large and small
stock growers, although it will doubt
less not be pia.sing to those wo
desire to exclude rivals from the

struggle for existence in many
places has grown so keen' that even
to the largest outfits the strife lias

them at least the removal of one of
the causes of contention by the reser

ALL RECORDS BROKEN.
All cecords for qualitative manu
facturing were broken during March
by the Studcbaker Corporation, whoso
Detroit factory produced an almost
equal number of E-M-F "30" and
Flanders "20" automobiles, to the
combined value of J4.27C.000 a fig
ure far in advance of anything ever
before attained by any of the world's
motor car builders.
Across the Detroit river, at Walk-
erville,- Out., the Studebaker Corpor
ation of Canada was increasing this
record by an output marketed at
$325,000 more. The grand total for
the month's work was, therefore, ex
This record was set despite the
fact that a freight car famine was
prevalent in Detroit throughout the
month, rigidly limiting the number
of automobiles which could be mar
keted daily. But Tor this handicap,
the value of the. March Studebaker
product would have leen increased
by at least $500,000.
In addition to the month's record,
the Studebaker plants also estab
lished a new figure for one day's
shipments. On .March 30 a total of
374 new motor cars were loaded at
the Studebaker sidings and started
on their journey to the salesrooms
of 98 Studebaker brandies and deal
ers in the United States and abroad.
Despite the setting of these world's
records for production, the Stude
baker plants closed the month as
far behind orders as at the start of
the sprint. This makes it almost
certain that production in April will
surpass that of March even though
the latter month contains one more
As a manufacturing achievement,
aside from its interest to motorists
and students of business conditions
generally, the Studebaker feat is of
great importance. To produce more
than four and a. half million dollars'
worth of goods in twenty-sjx work
ing days is si labor so immense as
to .stagger Imagination, particularly
when tho article of manufacture is
a creation as complex as a motor
j- To make, tho feat possible the
I Studebaker organization had to lay
its -plans- for - many months in ad--vance.
Unusual quantities of raw
material had to be- secured and
stored, for there -must be no short
age of evtn an unimportant nut or
bolt when production is being speed
ed up. For some departments there
wan no rest during the entire month.
Day and night the great steam ham
mers pounded away incessantly, and
thet case-hardening ovens where the
special steals are treated, were never
allowed to cool. Some of the ma
chine shops toiled incessantly.
General Manager Cunn allows no
body to question whether or not the
March record can be broken in April.
He is confident that the 13.000 work
men in the twelve Studebaker plants
have only hinted at what they can
really accomplish. The only ele
ment of doubt Is the supply of
freight cars. If enough of these can
be secured, dealers in the United
States and Canada will be enabled
tq turn over to waiting customers a
round $5,000,000 worth of cars, made
complete in the Studebaker shops
VALUE OF LENTEN SELF DENIAL
To drop a fi-w r'fures for a brief
season, onl to plunge into them with
new ze.st as sxm as that .season is
ended; fo out off sundry luxuries for
a few days, onlv to take them up
again with others added; to force
one-self perfunctorily into a pious
frame of mind. at the dictate of an
ar.cient custom, and then jump ouj of
it at the earliest opportunity, surely
this smacks of the artificial, and can
accomplish no permanent good. By
linking religion with petty and in
.. self-denials like the giving
up of a cigar or a box of chocolates,
and by magnifying the importance of
paltry acts of penance, there is greai
danger of degrading the whole idea
of piety and making Christianity seem
a superficial and flimsy thing.
