We Guarante
10,000 Mile:
Nearly everybody now knows that
Motz Cushion Tires are easy-riding
' and trouble-proof, but do you realize
the great economy of these tires ?
Do you realize that every set of
Motz Cushion Tires is guaranteed
for 10,000 miles?two years?
Do you realize that the upkeep cost
on a set of Motz Cushion Tires is
practically nothing ?
Do you realize that four, not five,
of these tires make a complete set.
What if the initial cost of Motz
Cushion Tires is a trifle more than
pneumatics, is not the additional cost
paid back ten times over ?
They Ride Easy
Motorists and motor car makers
once thought that only pneumatic
tires could be easy riding and resilient,
but Motz Cushion Tires upset ail
calculations. Thousands now know
from experience, from using Motz
Cushion Tires, that they were wrong.
They know that no pneumatic, except
under excessive speed, is more resilient
than the Motz.
Note the construction of this remarkable
tire. Note the double,
notched treads lA in picture), which
prevent skidding and distribute the
weight to the sides. The sides are
undercut (see Bi, which allows tree
action of slantwise bridges (seeC).
These bridges are elastic. They give
and yield like the air in a pneumatic
tire. Note D in the picture, showing
shock-absorbing qualities when tire
runs over a stone.
Needless to say, Motz Cushion
Tires end all punctures and blowouts.

ACTIVE interest is being displave
by the automobile dealers o
Washington in the comltug au
tomobile show to be held i
Convention Hall and the aut
carnival which follows it. During th
past week many of the representative
communicated with their respective fac
tories relative to obtaining special car
for exhibition put pose during these tw
events. The present week probably wil
witness a meeting of committees of hot
affairs, and from that time on "progress
will be the byword. The dates for th
auto show are February '? to s and th
carnival from February 10 to 13.
As an evidence of the interest whirl
is being taken in the auto show, t'hair
man T. Oliver Prctoey is authority fo
the statement tj^at more than one-hal
of the floor space for the big event ha
been taken and contracts signed foi
I This is considered an excellent showing.
Most of the time has been spent i
arranging the manj details necessary t
maks an undertaking of such magnitud
a thorough success from every stand
Water color sketches have been suh
iniicod for the decorations of the spa
cious hall, all of which are of unique an
colorful nature. The successful bidde
prpbably will be announced' within th
next few days. The local show will fol
low the Philadelphia show, and pre
- cedes the Baltimore show by two week;
Announcement as made yesterday r
the appointment of E. A. (Jarlock a
secretary of the show.
The coming show will be operated o
the co-operative basis, as has been th
case with former automobile shows hel
in Washington.
One of the features of the exhibitio
will be the musical programs rendere
by the I'nited States Marine Band, un
der the directorship of Lieut. William 11
Santlemann, thus insuring the highes
class of music ever offered at an auto
. mobile show in the country. Anothe
feature will be "society night,-' which i
usually the big night at all shows o
this character. The Marine Band con
certs will be rendered every afternoo:
and evening.
Interest is now rampant among th
automobile devotees of Washington ove
the coming exhibition; the lapse of tim
since the last show whetting the appetit
of the* public for this season's affaii
I Every effort is being made to make tiii
j the banner show of the National Capital
i and no exoense is 'being snared in tlii
I connection. The show, as on forme

j February and for the balance of tli
} week from 10 a m., closing at 11 at night

The Big Show.
J Already the all 'round record smashini
predicted for the thirteenth national au
tomobile show In Grand Central Palac
and Madison Square Garden, January 1
to 25, has begun. That the forthcomim
exhibition ",n two buildings for tw
weeks" will eclipse any similar affai
held here or abroad in point of numbe
of exhibitors, comprehensiveness and ii
the total intrinsic value of goods to b
shown is now assured by the list of ex
hibitors just issued by the automobil
board of trade, under whose auspices th
show is to be held.
The list already shows that more tha
530 exhibitors will make up the display
in the garden and palace. On the garde
list there are 43 makers of pleasure ve
hides and 272 accessory concerns exhibit
ing in this building the first week. Th
palace, during the first week, will hav
4<> or more exhibitors of complete pleas
ure cars, 25 displays of motor cycles an
more than H*> accessory displays. Dui
ing part two 25 companies will show com
plete commercial vehicles In the garder
while the palace will house models o
4! truck manufacturers. In each build
ing the majority of the accessory maker
will exhibit the entire two weeks.
The show is to be staged simultaneous
ly in Grand Central Palace and Madiso
Square Garden, January 11 to 25, and, a
usual, will be divided into a pleasure ca
week and commercial vehicle week.

Foreign Car Exhibit.
The arrangement whereby the salo
of imported cars inaugurates the Amerl
can automobile show season of 1W13 is
fitting one, for Europe was the blrthplac
of the modern motor vehicle and th
cradle of its infancy. The salon wi

Uth, the day the big double shot
begins simultaneously in Madison Squar
Garden and the Grand Central Palace.

use in this country and the America

world's markets, it is still to the foreig

r j
e That Washington is an excellent traine
; ing ground for those engaged in the auto
mobile game, and is Iteing recognized as
I j such by tiie main office, is shown by tfie
s ] fact tliat within the past few weeks sevi"
j era1 local branch managers have been
" promoted to higi er positions and at the
t sajne time given more responsibility.
Tiie latest transfer is that of F. \V.
Powers, more popularly known as
"Wade" Powers, local manager of the
g I Washington hrancii id' the Goodyear Tire
- and Rubber Company. He returned from
e Akron. Ohio, yesterday, where lie was inj.
formed of his promotion to he manager of
the Philadelphia branch of that company.
* He will leave Washington about Decem?
lier 15 to assume his new duties. The
r Quaker city branch is much larger than
r the one here, in fact, is the largest in
n the east. Announcement probably will
be made tomorrow who his successor will
e be.
Mr. Powers is one of the most popular
0 men in the tire business in Washington.
e Four years ago he came here to be manager
of the local branch, having come
11 from St. bonis, Mo., where he was
s cashier of that branch. In October, lOlO,
n he opened the Baltimore branch, which
also came under his management, together
with the local branch. August 15 last
he moved into the new branch, which
.? was constructed for the company at WIG
\ lttli street northwest, under his supervi.
skm. Previous to that time he was rnan"
j ager of the branch at 1?L!G Connecticut
avenue. He has a large staff of men
under him and has one of the most cum1
plete tire offices in the city.
~ Mr. Powers was horn in St. I.ouis,
s which he still claims as his home. He is
one of the youngest branch managers in
l~ the country and that he has made good
is evidenced by the announcement of Ids
promotion, which will be received with
delight by his many friends here. He
is married and will shortly take up his
residence with his wife in the Quaker
I- motor, the invention of an American who
a was forced to go abroad, as were the
e Wright brothers, to gain initial j-ecoge
nition. American body builders arc frank
11 in acknowledging the lead of the Eud
ropean carrosieres and are proud of the
e copies they make of the best foreign
v designs.
e The importers predict that much of the
interest in the coming salon will he const
tered in the bodies, for these contain
n most of the innovations which the Eue
ropean manufacturers are bringing But
n for next year. A similar prediction was
made last year, however, and yet the
1!?12 salon introduced four distinct types
t of valveless motors, to say nothing of
d front wheel brakes, worm drives and
other new mechanical features,

"Six Little Yankees" Promises to
Relieve Much Motor Trouble.
A new carbon preventive and remover
lias made its appearance on the market,
which gives promise of relieving the motorist
from worry, when lie finds that the
power of his motor is gradually decreasing
as time wears on. It is said that experience
lias shown that a motor a< eumu- '
lates euliirl^nt carbon to interfere with j
its fuilrst < Pic" ncy after it has run I
miles. This ih y l.e almost imperceptible j
after cm. .".<> > in les. but the io.-s of power.
it is claimed, is there just the same.
Every owner of a motor-driven vehicle
knows the troubles which arise *Aen carl>on
begins to develop in the m?ur. At
iirst its effect is imperceptible, but as the
carlion accumulates and hardens the force
of the explosion is decreased and the i
motor power is li stened. It then becomes
necessary to send the car to the shop,
have the motor torn down and cleaned, :
with the resultant loss of time, not to I
mention the inconvenience.
A carbon preventive and remover known [
as the-"Six Little Yankees," which works
while the car is in service, has been put
on the market. The makers claim it not
only cleans oat the carbon already existing,
but- prevents its formation in the
future if used every 300 miles. All that
is necessary to its use is to run the mo- !
tor until it is hot. then remove a spark (
plug from one cylinder and drop in six
of the "Six little Yankees." After waiting
about live minutes the motor is again l
started, and soot and bad odors will )
herald the disappearance of the carbon. 1
