THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22; 1917.
n USED CARD E IND KILLS PLANS SHOWIN OCTOBER Paige Four-Passenger Tourist Vfter much discussion and tenta tive planning, the Automobile Trade Association Thursday night voted down' the used car show proposed for the nrst week In October. The essential reason for this de cision Is that dealers are unable to Set a. sufficient number of ued cars to hold such a show. What with dif ficulties they experience In setting; new cars, the de.nana for rood used cars has Increased steadily, until it now vies in Importance with the mar-1 for the 1818 models. Many a buyer has bad to content himself with a good used car for his delinquency In signing an order for the car he wanted, but which was much oversold and behind in delivery. The Buy-Your-Car-Now movement was taken seriously by many pros pective purchasers of new cars, and those who treated the editorial warn ings of the newspapers and the state ments of the dealers as fantasy, bunk, and sales-conversation found, when they decided to buy, that there was nothing to buy but a promise to de liver. Fortunately deliveries are increas ing. Sealers are getting more cars and are catching up with demand. But the situation has by no means cleared. And the used car market continues strong. It Is sincerely to be hoped that the passing of the plans for the used car chow will not militate against plans lor a January automobile show In "Washington. Without being so in fact, the failure of the dealers for a very sufficient reason to hold this show might, by some remote process be a criterion that would hamper the holding of a big spring exhibition of new models.

A. Crumley Is nothing sur prising. Collins has been with Combs' al most since the Inception of the com pany, and was right bower to Crum ley when he took hold of the local Chalmers-National agency. There Is not a more able man In Washington. Collins should make a good ex ecutive. He has rare Intelligence and Insight, and he Is a dynamo of energy. He works long and spares neither physical nor mental effort to achieve. Few men outside of experimental laboratories and factoring engineer ing departments know more about the internal combustion engine. Collins has a perfect "ear" for trouble, and his Judgment In the most minute ad justment of a car is almost infallible. His tuning of a car brings Into play The new convertible four-passenger Paige may be made a two-passenger tourist in a few seconds by the simple expedient of dropping the rear seat forward and dropping the arm rests. A yacht schema pre vails throughout, and the car bears a distinction that is emphatically its own. It is one of the most radical and beautiful models Washington has seen this summer. carload of Hupps was unloaded, a flock of salesmen and service men trooped In and descended on several packages of weeds Favorite had In the top drawer of his desk. After the second package has disappeared and the third been violated, Dlneen, who had Just returned from a demon stration, came in. opened the drawer, and took one o fthls Favorite brand. "Ben." he said, gravely, "we've only got three cigarettes left." Collins Takes Charge R. I. Lewis. Beau Brummel of automobile row, complained this week of business being good. "It Is getting so that I have to get breakfast about, 0. and that's all the food I have time for till 7 at night." Lewis added that he hasn't had time to get a new suit for almost six weeks. E. C Black, for years associated with the Trew Motor Company, re slras this week to enter overseas service in the Ordinance Department Black has been made first lieutenant, and will probably go to France or Kenosha for preliminary training in the management of trucks or tanks. Burton Leary. back after several months of much needed rest. Is a changed man. Leary left here In a technical knowledsre that one set. early summer, stout, gray of counte dom finds In the executive head of a nance, and very ill. distributing branch. The change is astounding. He returned late last week, a thin ,,S. P. Howard, former distributer of 'walsted. husky Individual who looK Hupmobtles in Wilmington, DeL. has Joined the sales force of the Barry uotor company. Speaking of the Barry Motor Com pany, Ben Favorite, sales manager. Is considerably peeved. His cie-arette bill normally Is abnormal. He buys' SI Grogan hasn't been on a fishing cigarettes which become the prey of trip since last Sunday. He Is con. everyone from the car washers tol templating one, however, for next Sun the salesmen. On Wednesday, when a day. thnne-h he had been taking his meals at bugle call and his orders on living from a veteran top sergeant. The new, rugged-looking Leary, vi brant with vim and life. Is a mighty welcome sight. ! IMPlfllfBiH lMm im$li'J. -WaaaBBBBBi bbbbbbbbbV'bBSH''JBPbbbI bbbbbbbbET' J. '.-' .

Green & "linn. 100 A (Pel 478. Ordinary Tires Derelep Frictios la OperitieB, Says Expert "Many motorists aalc ms how cord tires effect a saving In fuel," says a Goodyear expert, "and this query Is a natural one, now that gasoline costs have boen mounting, and agita tion is developing for a limitation of motor car futl consumption. "All motorists know that In run ning over the ground a tire neces sarily creates considerable friction. And friction creates heat, which la only anothor form of power. That Is. It takes power to create heat. Take a piece of wire. Constant bending at the same point causes it to heat up until you can break It easily. It Is the same with tires. Con. stant rolling over the ground causes! the layers of cotton fabric to bendi and rub against each other and this J .-wuu repealed inaannitely, causes some one layer of fabric to break. uu aogn your tire 'lets go.' "And at the same time this action la going on, your tire Is absorbing' power. When you are driving overi louy or Dumpy roads, this absorp tion of power la Increased, and the resistance the fabrlo offers to the Impetus of stones and bumps, causes more friction. miSKivaislfWI . .JaaaBBBw! awxIawSB. 7lKTaor I .w.aBBBaBBBBBBB.S.

Werner, Pas saic, N. J, with Elliot B. Holton, of ficial observer for the Federation of American Motorcyclists riding as sidecar passenger. In a Harley-Dav-Idson sidecar outfit, established a new world record when he piloted the com bination rrom New York to Chicago recently. The distance covered was Oxaa miles, actual mileage from Cortland street ferry to South Chicago station. me eiapsed time was 43.14 hours. :tusl running time was 30.0.1 hours. Werner arrived in Chlcaro fmah ! and wide awake, despite the long, two-day and two-night grind. werner am only broke the con-1 tinuoua driving record, but also es-i tabllsbed a new twenty-four-hour rec- ora or 472 miles, made when he drove through Salem, Ohio.

"Although be has been married for nearly two years, Oubwalte's Inter est In hts'club has not revived." Known For Its Goodness The World Over Recognition of Hupmobile goodness is.world-wide. What was first a local, then a national, reputation, has now grown to Interna tional fame. ( We believe the Hupmobile to be the best car of its class in the world. Its extraordinary performance, at home and afar, forms the basis for olir belief. In war work and in peace work on snow-peaked mountains and blistering deserts where roads dwindle to mere stump-strewn trails the Hupmobile has won its goodness. Preferred in India and in Africa The British authorities in IndUa give it official preference for government tue. The South African government displayed like preference after teeing its work in the German East African war. It retained all its Hubmobiles in service, dis posing of other cars, and has since placed or ders for two hundred more Hapmobues. Previously the Hnpmobile has circled the South African Union. It traveled thousands of miles; forded bridgeless streams; and crossed road less wilds; going where no motor ear had traveled before. It is the favorite of long standing in Australia and New Zealand, where cart are bought for nhilitv alone. Stands High in U. S. Army Snrk It is pre-eminent in China; it stands Wry high in the Philippines and Japan. Jh Singapore. Straits Settlements, it ranks second fat tko number of cars in use. Last Bummer, on the Mexican border, our army had its first opportunity to put motor cars to a real military test. We violate no government confidence when we, say the official reports of HnpmobDd perform ance display an enthusiasm, quite unusual in such reports. Because of its greater goodness, the Hopmo bfle has become internationally known.
