arisen the motoring salesman who

For the motor car has offered trav

the ralwman who make- rmall

These travelers have gem-mlly had j

difficulties. They have made their i

motoring salesman gets into a town.

Of course the automobile fir such j

from confidence, not from knowledge.
Within a few minutes the novice will
have learned just how much of a
movement on . the steering wheel is
required to turn a corner, pass other
vehicles or obstructions.
"Turning the steering wheel to the
left will cause the front wheels to turn
in the same direction and the car will
travel to the left. Turning the steering
wheel to the right causes the car to
travel to the rieht. This applies when

"Proceed cautiously, preferably or. a
; road that is little frequented and wide
enough to give plenty of room for
your first attempt at automobile driv
ing. "Don't forget that aftef- turning a
corner the front wheels should be
'straightened'' up, otherwise you will
run off the road.
"Always bring your car to a 'dead'
stop before attempting to back up.
Failure to observe this may result
in serious damage to the transmission
and cause unnecessary expense. With
the car at rest and the gear-shifting
lever in neutral release the clutch by
depressing the clutch pedal and move
the gear-shifting lever forward into
the left forward position. Xow let
the clutch pedal come back easily and
at the same time acceleiate the motor

,"The far reaching prosperity the in
troduction of titeam had on general
industry is being duplicated by the
use of motor trucks in the agricultural
ivorld," says G. H. Reuben, local Kis
sel dealer.
"Both of these innovations create
greater production of the necessities ot
life, better goods and commodities at
lower prices, higher standards of liv
ing, increased purchasing power and
greater general prosperity.

tradition that no driver can win at
Uniontown without making a continu-1
ous run. for he drove a wonderful non-!
i stop race, and at the finish crossed the
line ct a speed better than 100 miles
an hour, lie drove on Goodyear cord 1
tires of the straight side type.

I The race was not without the usual
; thrills. On the 16th lap Omar Toft.
; driving a Toft Special, threw a wheel
' just after passing the grand stand.
. while travelling 95 miles an hour. In
I a wonderful exhibition of driving and
' skill and daring. Toft brought his

; safety near the inner rail, while the
j other drivers whizzed by. The run

j tinued down the track and took the
i curve beautifully, travelling about COO

around 'the track several times, with
the spinning wheels emitting sparks of
fire, finally crashing into the opposite
rail, without injury to the driver. In
spection showed a broken spring and
a sprung axle, putting the car out of
the running.
On the 89th lap as Louis Chevrolet
was rounding this same urve, his ear
was seen to swerve from one side of
the track to the other, and the crowd
rose in apprehension of a serious dis
aster, but the master driver soon re
gained control, straightened out his

STOPPING on a grade is safe

The Cadillac has taken what
might be considered unntctuary
precaution!. For example, a small

The heat trtaimtnt of this Pin in
sures long life and safety.
Thii unusual care upon so-called
"rough" parts is typically Cadillac,
BUOYANT, is the word that owners picturesquely
use in describing one outstanding quality of Cadillac
In the front seat, or in the tonneau, there actually w a
sense of floating through space.
Mere weight contributes a certain steadiness to a motor car.
But Cadillac steadiness, is the steadiness of substantial,
balanced weight, with a motive power suggestive of wings.
The power of the V-type engine is so great, so constant,
and so fluid in its action, that it triumphs completely over
the inert metals which it propels so buoyantly over the road.
The vigor and life of his car, its constant readiness, ever
and always these are things that help to make a Cadillac
owner the enthusiast he is.
Back of spontaneous delight in a motor car must be an
abiding confidence.
And, of course, even-temper and uniform performance
are sources of lasting satisfaction in Cadillac possession.
