Section Two THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 25, 1918 PASSENGER S HI USED FOR TRANSPDHTAT'H "Today, the passenger automobile, used stricty as a means of transporta tion, occupies a commanding position in our life," says Bert O. Brown, local dealer in Chevrolet automobiles. "The importance of that use redused to dol lars and cents can hardly be figured. If all automobiles were to be with drawn from service at once, the loss would be overwhelming. "Take Chevrolet Model Four-Ninety as an example: This model finds its greatest use as a utility car. Here is a model which is a favorite, both In busy centers and in the country. "In thousands of cases this type is used solely as a means of transporta tion. Its economy in operation and the latitude of its usefulness make it al most indispensable. The man with many duties finds the Chevrolet Four-Ninety a valuable as sistant. It helps him to make more calls than he otherwise could. It is ideal to handle in traffic. The short turning radius allows the driver to "get in and out" anywhere. "The Chevrolet Four-Ninety is equally valuable on the farm. It goes to town and back in a Jiffy. The farmer does not have to "hitch up" his car. He does not have to feed and groom it constantly. It is never sick and out of service because of over work the day before. The automobile is ready to do his bidding. Ready for any errand, any time, anywhere. "It would be as imossible to dn with out the automobile as to do without any convenience we have today. This fact is being realized more each day." o At the eleventh annual midsummer convention of the allied cycle trades, a central body known as thfe Cycle Trade Association of America was formed, which will represent the industry be fore the United States chamber of commerce and the war industries board and co-operate with them in war time activities. Mr. H. S. Quine of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company and president of the Motorcycle and Allied Trades Association, championed the amalgamation resolution on the floor of the convention and was named one of a committee to perfect the working machinery tof the new asso ciation. In his convention speech he declared that the time had now come for real action on the part of the cycle industry that the big thing ahead was to win the war, with everything subor dinated to this end. The war had com pletely changed conditions and the in dustry must adjust itself to the situa tion as it is, standing ready to make any sacrifice to help the government in its great crisis. The resolution was unanimously adopted and subscribed to by every manufacturer represented, o PACKARD TRUCKS TO AIDTRANSPORTATQN All owners of Packard trucks are be ing requested to enlist their trucks un der the banner of greater efficiency for the duration of the war. The move ment which is the outgrowth of the Packard national truck efficiency test is meeting wun a nearty response everywnere ana it is believed that a very large number of the 26,000 Pack ards now on the road will swing into line and save freight cars for Uncle Sam, says A. G. Dulmage, of McArthur Brothers. " In asking co-operation of all Pack ard owners and drivers the Packard company is only endeavoring to do all in its power to promote the plans of the highways transport committee of the Council of National Defense. Last spring it asked all truck owners in the country for greater trucking efficiency, especially the carrying of return loads wherever possible. That its appeal has not been made in vain is evidenced by the large number of return loads bu reaus already established in the prin cipal cities of the country. The one great obstacle to the carry ing of return loads is the lack of good roads." True, Rome cities have well- built thoroughfares radiating out into the country, but not very many. Pack ard officials are of the opinion that thousands of tons of farm produce are yearly allowed to go to waste because the roads along which they are grown are in such a bad state that traffic on them is Imost an impossibility. Good roads everywhere would reach these now out-of-the-way farms. o ft II T U M LI BILE BIG FACTOR IN L 1 siBf suran E FOE KKR BILLS It has been shown statistically that about 2.000,000 automobiles are in the every day use of the farmer. The dis appearance of the automobile would make it necessary to increase the horse population by about 25,000,000. The land required for feeding these horses would raise enough wheat in a single year to pay the national debt, including the liberty bond issues to date. One of the historic events, perhaps the historic event of the automobile year, was the Oldsmobile's attainment of its 21st birthday. Oldsmobiie, the word, is almost as old as automobile, the word. It Is significant that in this year Oldsmobiles reached a state of perfection that created an over whelming demand of both the Loyalty Eight and the Vartime Six. Production has, of course, been cur tailed. The Oldsmobiie factories are turning out only a small proportion of their normal capacity. Vast increases in the cost of materials, labor and transportation have necessitated cor responding increases in prices. And because of uncertain conditions ail IQldsmobile distributors and dealers nave been requested to quote prices only for immediate delivery. It is im possible for anyone to predict when future prices will occur, nor how great lliey will be. Notwithstanding all this, in every department of the Oldsmobiie business maximum efficiency is being maintained. o Peanuts, lb. .30 Brazil nuts, lb 30 Filberts, lb 30 String beans, per lb 15 Summer squash, lb 1Q Peaches, 3 and 4 lbs. .. .25 Green corn, dozen 50 .60 Watermelons, lb 03 Cantaloups 05 .07 Grtipes, 2 lbs -.25 Celery, bunch 20 Sweet potatoes, lb 10 Bananas, lb .15 Okra , .15 Peas, lb .20 Pears, lb. . .15 - - FINANCES AND MARKETS I Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW YORK. Aug. 24. Buying for both accounts, including extensive covering of short contracts, was wit nessed in today's broad and active stock market, some leaders registering maximum quotations of the year. The remarkable change of sentiment was caused by overnight developments such as the further sweep of the allied forces in the western war arena and signs of easier money. Foremost features of the two hour session, in which the turnover was 425,000 shares, were Canadian Pacific, which made an extreme gain of 8 points, retaining all but the smallest fraction, and United States Steel's gain of 2Vz points to 114 Vs. its top price of the year. Numerous other rails, industrials, equipments and sundry specialties were lifted 1 to 2 points, the rise being gradual and sustained throughout Few isolated los""" were trivial. Final prices showed no impairment, especiMiv the French group and United Kingdom 5's, which af'n touched par. Total sales of bonds par value, aggre gated $5,575,000.

LIVESTOCK AUTi HELPS ONLY SAFE RETREAT HI CIS I MOUNTED OH DODGES Mr. Leecraft of McArthur Brothers furnishes the following information: Machine Gun Company No. One Kleventh Illinois Infantry, has been provided by the state with two Dodge Brothers motor cars, with complete marnine gun equipment. When the National uard of Illinois became federalized, immediate steps were taken to organize three regiments or militia, which would be available in case of riots or other extraordinary acts arising witnm the state. 1 no regiments, designated as the Ninth and Tenth, were raised in the central and southern part of the state. while the Eleventh Regiment was re cruited wholly from Chicago and vi cinity. General James A. Stuart was se lected by the governor to lead the Chi cago contingent, with the rank of col onel. Nelson Morris, chairman of the board of directors of Morris and com pany, was made captain of the ma chine gun company, with a strength of nearly 100 men. The state issued full equipment in cluding Springfield rifles, to the regi ment; and to the machine gun com pany, guns of the latest pattern and Dodge Brothers motor cars. The ma chine guns shoot 30 calibre bullets at the rate 420 per minute and are mounted on a swivel sitting on a spe cially constructed frame over the hood. Each gun is controlled by the gunner at the side of the driver and can be pointed in any direction and to an ele vation or deflection of about 45 de grees. The automobiles are flexible and capable of high sneed and renuire but little room for maneuverinig. Two auiomonues constitute a platoon, which unit has been found to offer the greatest mobility. F. E. Rich, of the Rich Hardware company, distributors of the Amazon tires, offers the following suggestions for the consideration of the German kaiser: "We do not want to butt into your personal affairs Bill, since your hands are pretty well occupied just now in protecting your rear guard from the butting of the American goat, which you thought you had got but which has now got you. So as you must sf e that you are about all in, we would suggest that you get your fastest and most powerful buzz-wagon and beat it for the rear and the interior as far from nowhere as you can get in order to escape the wrath that is turned loose. That you may take all human precaution to get a long -way off and out of danger, take nr extra change of shirts, a good big lunch, fill an extra tank with gas, plenty of oil, put on Amazon tires U around with one extra casing and tube, ard if any thing in the world will carry you far ei.ough to get you -out of harm's way, th'a will do it. "We will not even hint that we .vould appreciate an autograph letter fiom you, thanking us lor putting you wise to this outfit, since buzz-wagons, shirts, gas, oil and Amazon tires are so well known here in America that it, really wouldn't be of any great value in the way of publicity anyway.' TRUCKUilSED 0 SS ACTIVITY EXTENSIVELY N LI W "Because of congested freight condi tions in the cattle country, farmers and stock raisers, are turning to the motor truck for hauling their produce and cattle to market," says Joseph Mc Aller of the Kissel Auto company. "That this method of transporting livestock is practical and a foregone sucess is evidenced by the first train, which recently passed through Dallas from Farmersville, containing five trucks loaded with sheep and hogs for delivery at the Fort Worth stockyards. The entire distance of 51 miles was made in 7 hours at less cost than if shipped via freight cars." "It is through the adaptability of the automobile that I have been able to increase my business activities," writes an owner to Jos. McAleer of the Kissel Auto company. "I am the proprietor of a farm, president of a national bank and owner of a cattle and sheep ranch, and it would be impossible for me to handle all of my business without an auto mobile. If I did not own the car, it would require at least one extra fore man, besides not personally knowing at all times just what the , business at each place was doing." o n 1 Local Produce Market t r3 A car of Stockton, Diamond Ps pota toes came in on the local markets yes terday and another is expected in on Monday.

Superior, Arizona STOCKS BONDS Correspondent, Tucker, Hayes & Bartholomew Members New York and Boston Stock Exchange FINANCIAL REVIEW NEW YORK, Aug. 24. Conflicting monetary condition- without precedent in the history of American finance caused a further halt in the activities of. the stock market this week, although the undertone was strong in the main, becoming almost buoyant at the final session. Credit restrictions were counterbalanced to a degree, however, by the steady accumulation of Liberty bonds, especially the tax exempt 3Va at the new record of il 02.50. There was a noteworthy increase of dealings in the foreign war flotations, the inquiry extending to Russian in ternal and external bonds. Absorption of -these issues were accompanied by greater strength in exchange on Lon don and Paris, francs making their highest quotation of the -ear. An important step toward the res toration of more normal money rates was taken by J. P Morgan and com pany who announced their intention to make daily advances on eligible ac ceptances at rates based on the dis count quotation of the federal reserve bank. Market leaders were at their best prices of the year at the week end. Canadian Pacific's further substantial gain causing another precipitate driv ing in of the short interest, while United States Steel's rise to 114 also effected some disorder among the bears. CLUTCH GRABBING This trouble is the opposite of slip ping. The clutch takes hold too sud-. denly, so that the car is -Jerked in starting and needless strain Is involved for the entire power transmitting mechanism. GrabbiVig is caused by too heavy spring pressure, by facings that have become rough and dry, by end play in the crankshaft, by misalign ment of the clutch shaft, by too tight an adjustment.
