AVhat will Howard Coffin do when he builds a -six? Well, the answer is just as satisfactory and complete as that oft asked question has been in teresting' and puzzling. When you bee that great, long, beautifully pro portioned "54" gliding along so easily and silently, with its luxurious and comfortable appearance, you say to yourself, "There is a real automo bile." Everything is all right again at the M. and II. Sales company garage, for the boys have some cars to sell, having had the best kind of a time Friday unloading a car of Hudsons, including the aforesaid Six and two of the famous 37s.' These 37s are the same model .as those sold recent ly to Dr. Tuttle of Glendale and David Devore of Globe. One of these S7s is sold, but it's for Christmas de li very, so the buyer's name is a secret. MeCondra himself was at the wheel of the big "54" when it was tried out and says one simply has to drive it to b convinced that so powerful a, car can be so simple in its control and so easy to drive. On high gear the motor is practically silent, and it is this quiet motor, combined with the elegant finish and luxurious cushioning of the car, that has al ready given the Hudson Six the name of being one of tln finest cars rnade in America. o A BUDDHIST ANNIVERSARY About the middle of the sixth cen tury before our era a son was born to a chief of the Rakiyas in the val ley of the Ganges and given the in dividual name Sldrthatta. To hund reds of millions Since that time he has been known as the buddha. meaning the Knlightened One by no means the first Buddha, but the one of this cycle and the system of re ligion which he established is said to have nof more followers than any Other religion, except that of Jesus. Throughout the Buddhist world the present year is being celebrated as the twenty-five hnnrdedth anniversary of Buddhism not of . the birth of Buddha, but of his "enlightenment" that is his renunciation of the world and his entrance ufjon his career as a prophet and teacher, which continued until his death at the age. of 80. His followers da .not- honor --him as a god. but ifs a great leader, and as their ideal of what a man may become. Be yond dispute he has exercised a wider influence than any other man that India ever produced. Buddhism has suffered many divi sions and sub-d'visions, and the an cient faith has been complicated by many change sand conditions. In its orinin it bore much the relation to the Brahmanism of India that early Christianity bore to Judaism. It was a reaction from the exclusiveness: of caste and a protest against unneses sary form and ceremony. The intricacies of the Buddhist doc- L trine are obscured by an Oriental mysticism when viewed by the West ern mind. But it its essence Budd hism deals .with the rules of right conduct,- rather than with God or soul It is intensly practical, and breathes the spirit of universal charity and sympathy. Its ideal is the cleansing of the heart.its theory that every man is his . own savior. The doctrine of transmigration, or at least, the link between one life and another, is an essential part of the faith, and pun ishment. - ' . t A religious faith which- is the ex pression of the Indian wisdom of many centuries, and which serves and satisfies . untold millions of , fol lowers, is worthy of more respect than it is sometimes given in the Christian wolrd.

The annual consumption of wood in the manufacture of matches is almost incredible.

To 58 miles an hour in 30 seconds, from standing start. - ; Billy Ferguson of the Ferguson Mohn company, handlers of the Buick and Apperson cars for this part of I inr world, wont to Tucson in a new ear the first of the week to look over the motor situation in the south. It was not his primary purpse to dis pose of the car he took down, but he had a sale well under way in no time after his arrival. ' The Buick has caught on like a fa vorite among the Phoenix motorists. Some of the records for its efficiency mane in an parts of the country and under all possible conditions of road and weather, speak so favorably for the ear that a vogue is being estab lished in many cities. Local .sales have been very encouraging the last wc.k. All the cars that can be .got ten from the manufacturers can be sold outright. It seems that the most trouble lies in getting the ma chines. The customers are already waiting. Some surprising announcements will be made soon about the new lines in both the Apperson and the Buick.

He has been doing it for three years, and is ah-eady planning to pay his way through a first-class agricultural college with what he "calls "my po tato proceeds." . Two years ago he found a heap of potatoes in a perfectly dark room in the stable." Instead of being decayed each potato was surrounded by bunches of almost perfectly white lit. tie potatoes about the: size of hick ory nuts. They looked so good.-he cooked some of them in a dipper on a tin stove in the barnyard and be cause they tasted much more delicate than the usual "new potatoes" he de cided all on his own hook to experi ment systematically with them and vyaste no time on a paltry , dozen or two. - 'Selecting;- large, perfect, potatoes without the slightest blemish, ho The Two New HUDSON Cars That 48 Engineers Built The picked engineers from 97 European and American automobile factories combined in building the New HUDSON cars. - There are 43 experts in the organization, at the head of which is Howard E. Coffin, America's leading automobile engineer and builder of six famous cars. ' Combined, these men had a hand in building more than 200,000 motor cars. No car can be greater than its engineers planned It to be. Ve believe mechanical perfection is more quickly and thoroughly accomplished through combining the experience and skill of many men than 16 ever possible if dependence is placed entirely upon one man. The Six The "54" HUDSON supplies every demand mc.de of any automobile, in speed, get-away, fcafety, power, lux urious equipment, distinctive appearance and comfort. It is not merely a "Six" made so by the addition of two cylinders to a good four-cylinder car. At is capable of a speed of 65 miles an hour with full equipment and will jump to a speed of 5S miles an hour in 30 seconds from a standing start. . . ' Its equipment is complete in every detail, which includes an electric self-cranking, electric lighting dynamo type and ignition system, known as the Del co, patented. Illuminated dash and extension lamp, mohair top, curtain, rain vision windshield, speedo meter, clock, demountable rims, oGxiJ-o-inch tires, 127 inch wheel base, etc. The seat cushions are 12 inches deep. Turkish type. The finest materials are used throughout. No detail of finish or equipment is skimped or overlooked.

Coffin leads all . in building four-cylinder cars. No designer has built as many succssful automobiles. In building the HUDSON "37" all his skill and ex perience contributed to its perfection. But in addition there was also" or ked into the car the skill and exper ience of his 47 expert associates. Thus was produced a car such as no one man is cap able of building. It is truly a composite masterpiece. The "37" combines all that these experts know in the art of automobile building. Its detail of comfort, beau ty, distinctiveness and equipment is precisely the same as that furnished on the "Six." The car has sufficient power for every requirement. It is quiet and free from the degree of vibration common to most automobiles. It is a simple, accessible, durable car the best our 48 engineers know how to build ; therefore we unhesitat ingly recommend it as the Master of any four-cylinder car, regardless of cost, power or make.
