ADDS TO PENSION PLAN Express Firm Reorganizes Benefit System, Giving Men Many New Advantages, Announcement is made by Wells Fargo & Co. Express to its employes of a new benefit and pension plan. which ranks with the best pension plans. The new system went into effect on June 1. The company has been retiring its older men on pensions for more than a quar ter of a century-for the past twelve or fourteen years its pension board has been a distinct feature at its general organi sation. But the new plan. as its name indicates. contemplates much more than pension relief. One of its most salient features is a disability clause. which applies to any established worker in the company's ranks who may be stricken by illness or by accident. To make this cause clearly under stood. It Is only necessary to read the program of the new pension system. It specifically states that any Wells Fargo salarled em'ploye, who has been six months or more in the service, when in Casacitated for work by accident or sickness. while not on duty. may be al lowed pay for the period of the enforced absence. in accordance with a very gen erous table of time allowarces. Contiane Pay After Death. Another feature og the new pension plan is the one which provides for the continuance of a man's salary to his beneficiaries for a season after his death. The new plan recognizes, of course, all the sturdy principles to which Well. Fargo has long been committed. In fact. its careful perusal will show that many of the provisions of the old have been amplified. To make a single instance. the minimum pension allowance for super. annuated employee is now haed at 00 a month. Under the old plan there was no minimum allowance. Because of these traditions of the early Wells Fargo. coming down to today, the earlier pension plan came into existence a number of years ago. At first this plan was most Informal. In the years when the general headquarters of the company were situated at San Francisco the men who had been identified with it in the days of the pony-rider, the cUpper-ship and the six-horse coach were coming into the evenings of their lives-lives spent in the faithful and loyal service of Wells Fargo. It was the privilege of the e press company at that time to single out these men and to reimburse them each month until the day of their deatha. From such an informal beginning the pension plan gradually grew more sys tematic until, fourteen years ago, a for mal plan was adopted and since then has been administered by a regularly ap pointed pension board. This board continues, with only slight changes, under the new plan. It consists of Vice Presidents Andrew Christeson. of San Francisco. and E. A. Stedman. of Chicago, the operating heads of Wells Fargo. Vice President and Comptroller J. W. Newlean. of Chicago. and General Superintendents H. B. Calkins, of Chi cago, and Grover B. Simpson, of St. Louis. These men will administer the details of the new plan through its gen eral office at Chicago. They are all vet Bran expressmen. capable of understand ing all the problems of the men with whom they are co-operating. OVERHAULs AUTOMOBILE BEFORE SUMMER GRIND A thorough overhauling of the cat now before the long eummer grind sets in is one form of motor insurance that avery owner can afford to take out. As the summer months approech, the motorist who is running his ear for the Second season may discover that a tigid inspection at this time of the year will stand between long repair bills and perhape costly accidents. Over hauling does not mean a superficial In spection of the chassib end body and the tightening of a few noticeably loose nuts. It includes a thorough and systematic job of putting the vehicle in the heat possible condition. It is a good plan to begin the ever hauling with the motor and take in the ietails of the ear at a time, If nothing lee is done the grease and grime from a year's running should be washed from the cylindesrs and 4hotor bese, with gasoline. -The Interior parts of the mnotor. panticularly where carbon de posits oeaur, should be swabbed out writh a kerosene.eoaked clothi The men who takes care of his own ,f the creak case, or oil reservoir and dean this. theroughly.

T is a physical impossibility to make two hills without a hollow, but a Saxon will make a hundred hills without ever making a "holler." Car miles and gasoline are relevant terms-one measures dis tance traveled and the other power to cover it. The most important question is not how much GASOLINE COSTS per GALLON, but PER RUNNING MILE. People are buying Saxon Cars today on their PERFORM ANCE in, the hands of OWNERS and not on "pussy-footed" claims. and freak demonstrations. All the new Saxons you see on the street have been sold on the performance of the car in the hands of the user-not by one pen ny's discount-not by trading in an old car for twice what it is worth not by buying it on the installment plan or long-term notes. Twenty-eight satisfied Saxon owners participated in the socia f bility run to Rock Point, Maryland, and return on June 4 without ONE MINUTE'S MECHANItAL or TIRE TOUBLE. The entire distance covering one hundred and ten miles with an average running time of twenty miles an hour, the genetal average of -gasoline consumption was twenty miles to the gallon-five of the ' contestants averaging twenty-five miles to the gallon, and the winner ' 3of the first prize with six occupants in the car, made TWENTY-SIX Sand TWENTY-TWO ONE-HUNDREDS miles to the gallon of gas -ohne. The Saxon Car is made by the oldest automobile specialist manu Sfacturers in the United States, and are world-renowned for the best f: Sthat America can provide.
