Mount Hamilton Is ono of the longest and most difficult grades In California, islng to a height of over 4.000 feet, and The ascent to the summit is over twenty one milc of the most winding road In the world. Thero are 3C5 turns In the last seven miles to the top, some of these turns being oo short that It is difficult for a machine with a long wheel base to make them with safety. It is the condl. Hon of those curves that maloes It almoU n Impossibility to negotiate them on high gear uird makes the performance of the Marmon car of unusual Interest. The road between the starting point and Smith Ranch, at the base of the mountain. Is badly ploughed up; but this did not check the proi?rt-es of the Marmon. which appeared to have an overbunriance of power From Smiths Creek to tho summit of Mount Hamilton Is a distance of eevon miles and a rise of 2.200 feet. n tills stretch there are 365 turns, many of them of the hairpin variety. In mak- ng these turns the pace of the car was slackened slightly, but no sooner did the road straighten out than the motor quickly picked up Its lost speed and the car was ready to negotiate tho next turn Dnrant'a Hon Drives Well.

A big squadron of 300 Overland motor cars Is one factor In the resistance made by the Belgians agnlnst the forces of the Kaiser. These cars helped to make pos sible the withdrawal of the Belgian troops from Antwerp when It was believed that the entire army would be taken upon the fall of the city. The Overlands were used continuously during the retreat from the city, making trip nfter trip with loads of men, provisions nnu ammunition ueiween the city and the tlrst line of the allied troops. The cars were purchased shortly after the actual opening of hostilities from the stock of the Willys-Overland Limited, London distributer of Overland cars, by a commission of army motor experts headed by Col, Jammott, chief engineer of the Belgian artillery.

Mr. Oilier was seen In the new , headquarters of Studebaker at Broadway and Ilfty-slxth street, and he said that he was delighted with the enthusiastic reception accorded tho Studebaker fllx In the East. J "The fltudebaker fllx has long been a favorite car In the middle West and Southwest," said Mr. Oilier, "but now that It has shown its ability to negotiate 1 the stiff grades of the Eastern tier of i States, sales are going famously. The Studebaker Six Is really the lightest six In the market to-day. Tou get the ftexl- I blllty and steadiness of power with less ! gasolene consumption and less wear on the tires.

The Fort I.ee Hill, the grade at Fort George, the Montclalr Hill, are taken by the Studebaker Six on high." Mr. Oilier also said that many sales were being made In the Eastern territory on account of tho appearance of the Studabaker Six. "It Is a car that particu larly appeals to women," he said. "The electric self starter, the Irreversible fea ture of the steering wheel, the absence of I Jolting and Jarring when the car begins to move, all commend It to the ladles And, you know," concluded Mr Oilier, "women are a powerful factor In the pur chase of nearly every automobile."

Now York Agency for Pnblio VIotv. The new Dodgo Tiro' car, wMdi tM been the centre of Interest for the motoring public ever since tt was announced months ago that an automobile would be mar keted by theso bulldors of car parts, Is now In New York city, it Is on publlo view at the Colt-fltrwtton Hulldlng, Broad wny at Fifty-seventh street, In the sales rooms of the Oolt-Stratton Comp iny, met ropolitan reproBntatlve of the Dodc Dros. It Is safe to say that hardly any new car will attract more sightseers than this, and the members and staff of tho Colt-Strntton Company are pre paieil to greet hundreds of visitors from to-day on. There will be present at tho opening view of the car Charles W. Mathcson, district manager for tho metro politan section, and George C, Hubbs. assistant manager of sales of the Dodge Dros. factory.

Only recently, when notice went out thst the car would not be long In malting Its appearance, a number of other orders were booked by the Colt-Strntton Company. The local dealers look forward to nn en ergetic sale for the car In their terrltorv in bringing out the car Dodge nros, have pursued a plan different from th announcement of any other new model ever manufactured. Instead of giving out a set of specifications Immediately It was decided what car to build, Dodge Ilros. merely let It be known that a car wan to be built and decided to withhold the detailed Information from the public until the car was actually on exhibition In the salesrooms. By this methed It was sssured that nothing would be promised for the car In detail or performance, that was not actually In the machine, and there would be nothing to explain nwny or change. Public Interest In the car has only been stimulated by this method, It appears, from the enthusiasm over the car and the de sire to see the new model. In the Interval an advertising cam paign was embarked on to Inform the gen- most Unusually preseiuru u mc wiuiwi public. Is now a thing accomplished. NTJCK01S IN VALVOLINE OH.
