Un doubtedly many dealers and salesmen are 'themselves to blame for this con dition. They neglect; to properly in struct buyers or fail to impress upon them the absolute necessity -of study ing their instruction books while their machine is new. The result is that the novice ? driver allows his oil ." to become used . up, or fails to screw down, grease, eups. As consequence, bearings ran dry. pistons and cylln- l ders become damaged,' and the; man Cadillac motor . cars for the 1914 .this new feature, rnscn will continue to be built on a Ingle fcodel of chassis with a four Under motor.- j However, they are to conceives the idea that his. car is blame.
