Detroit at the Ponti and the
announcement quoted abovr was the
most important part of his address to
the assembled mot« csts and experts.
The cause for the mange Is ihe fact
that Independence day will be oele
hrated this year on July 6—the origi-
nal date set for the start of the tour
It did not seem wise to lumu two such
important affairs mid the postpone
ment was the result of a conference
letween Chairman Mower, of the tour
ing hoard, and Reveral of th * most im
portant members of the organization
The effect will be to give Detroit one
week more for preparation for the
event. It will also enable a greater
centralization of Interest locally and
allow the manufacturers who stand
behind the run to secure locally the
largest possible benefit from the pub
liclty which the gathering of so largo
a number of expert drivers and up-to
date cars will give.
Mr. Lewis predicted that the tour
of 1909 would bo by all odds the
largest and most Important In the ht:i
lory of the event which has played a
leading partln motoring for the past
six years. A careful review of the
situation enables him to estimate that
at least 100 cars and, In all proba
bility. considerable more than this
number, will take on *♦ In the event.

We Are Eager to Begin Making
Men’s Spring Suits to Order
It makes it easier for us, than to have all the men come
at once, when the weather gets warmer.
It is better for the man who plans ahead, for he not only
has the first choice of an unusually varied stock of brand
new materials but he has the comfort of knowing that his
suit is waiting for him to put on whenever he chooses to order
it sent home.
Men who like fine cloths will be interested in the collec
tion from America and Europe. Worsteds are in the lead—
hard finished, soft finished, medium finished. Grays are most
popular, most of them with a tinge of blue, the color next
in favor.
We are confident of the satisfaction our custom tailoring
will give. Men have our guarantee of correct style and ex
cellent fit—and the workmanship, trimmings, finish, are above

uot recognised officially, the Gliddeu
trophy being for touring cars and the
Hower for roadsters. The trophy was
offered some time ng-. by the Detroit
Automobile Dealers' association but
Chairman Hower was loath to accep.
it from a trade source If any opposi
tion develops in the council the trophy
will be presented ftom another source
but It is agreed that the most graceful
donor would be the municipality.
The Detroit trophy Is. however, an
assured fact already.
With Mr. Lewla in the E-M-F car
which left Detroit today, bound for
Chicago, were E. Leroy Pelletier, o'
the E M-F advertising staff; W. A.
Krohn. representing N. Lazernlck. the
official photographer, and George Mela
inger, the driver who will take toe car
on the run as pilot.

road knowledge enough to furnish the
[subject matter for the book, of which
I 20.000 or more copies will be printed

A. A A., particularly those who will
accompany the run.
