VULCAN MKFTS WITII APPROVAL The following letter to the Penbrook garage was received from J. C. Hugue ly, of the Internal Revenue Service, Danville, Ky.: "I have driven my Vul can something over 2,000 miles with out the slightest trouble, and have found the car very powerful, speedy and easy riding. The car being hung low, but with ample road clearance, I find reduces skiding to a minimum, making 1 the car very easy to handle and much less wear on the tires. Vou will find that the car is everything the mnaufacturer claims for it, and in appearance it IB admired by all." Chandler Attracted Many at the Port Royal Fair Tl- new ("handler light six has again demonstrated that it is a ma chine of the first class, capable of tak ing any hill at high speed and using comparatively little gasoline and oil in accomplishing long trips. Thursday afternoon, Andrew Redmond, the lo cal agent, and a party of friends start ed_for the Port Royal fair, the touring car weighing less than 3,000 pounds held to the ground like a veteran twice its weight and even on the roughest sections gave the'riders on the rear seats the impression that these parts too were in good condition. Some of the long hills enroute were taken with ease, Mr. Redmond not even .chang ing the gear, in several of the Perry and Juniata county towns, where the party made short stops, the car was inspected by many of the residents, who for the first time viewed a Chandler. The beautiful lines of the machine attracted them, the remark able ability of the machine and its many Improvements astonished them. Dozens of persons at the fair viewed the Chandler and proclaimed for It a great future. After leaving the Port Royal fair, Mr. Redmond took bis party over the beautiful new stretch of State road, thirteen miles in length, from Mlfllin town to Lewlstown. The party spent the early evening in the latter town whore the auto was again on exhibi tion for a short period. Some time later the trip to the city was made. One of the most remarkable feats of the car occurred on the steep hill back of Speeceville. There another car, of a popular make, and well known for its ability on the level, was making a determined effort to climb the hill with some speed. The machine start ed up well but before it had gotten half way up the Chandler passed it and kept on going without again see ing the car until this city was reach ed. At Mr. Redmond's place of business at Third and Boyd streets, the regis ter showed that 133 miles had been covered. A glance at the gasoline gauge showed less than nine gallons of gasoline had been used. The Chandler is a popular priced ear, a number of them having been de livered hi this city and immediate vi cinity.

"POTASH ASH PEHLMPTTER" Abe Potash and Mawruss Perlmutter scarcely need an introduction to the theatergoers of this city, Montague Glass - stories in the Saturday Even ing Post in which these simple, laugh ablo, lovable partners were first brought to the attention of the public won immediate recognition from Jew and Gentile alike because of their sin cerity and their quaint humor. They were "heart-Interest" stories In the truest sense of the word and It was in conserving this hear-lnterest In the dramatization of the stories that A. 11. Woods showed managerial genius, for that is the great secret of the most re markable stage success of recent years.

I BRIM WINS THE PITTSBUR9HERS Republican Candidate Is Making Speeches Which Attract Much Attention - Dr. Martin OS. Brumbaugh paused in liis campaigning in Pittsburgh yes terday to make a couple of speeches of a character, having lieen invited l>y commercial organiza tions to address them. He made a couple of speeches that breathed a civic spirit compared to which the pratings of certain Democratic candi dates sounded like tinkling brass. The educator showed himself thorouKhly familiar with the problems of govern ment and the importance of clean-ups and his receptions turned into ova tions. The candidate went to Pittsburgh to do some campaigning, and, accom panied by Chairman \V. J. Christy, went about the city during the morn ing. In the afternoon he made the addresses which won him great com mendation. and last night continued his campaign work. To-day he is with Frank H. McClain on a tour of Beaver county. The Pennsylvania Spirit In the course of one of his speeches Dr. Bl'umbaugh said: "We are all Pennsylvanians. Some of us, when we leave the State and meet people of other communities, do not confess with any degree of en thusiasm, or any degree of pride, the fact that we are Pennsylvanians. "I want to put into the hearts and consciences of the manhood of this State, that wherever yon go you should stand up for your State. It is a good State and has a record you can be proud of; and if we men of to-day live as clean, capable, substan tial lives as our fathers and grand fathers lived in Pennsylvania, we, too, can write chapters of history for this great State that our children can cite with pride." In another speech he said in part: "We are beginning to find in this country that when a man stands for something in a splendid way, no mat ter what that something is, provided it is only a clean, honorable thing, that man is worth while. "It is the man who does not stand vip. who does not show his colors, who does not get into the. thick of the light, who shrinks into the corners and acts the part of a coward, who is unworthy of American citizenship. "As a school teacher I have been interested for a number of years in two problems. The business of the school as an institution of our Ameri can democracy is to train our people to live together, to give them com mon knowledge with which to think and plan and live and legislate to gether. The very essence of a dem ocracy should be a common fund of knowledge with which to think and understand." "There is no more important prob lem facing the great State of Penn sylvania to-day than the problem of vocatlonalizing her public school sys tem, so that every boy and every girl that goes out of the public school into the great social and industrial life of the Commonwealth shall go out trained to do in a definite way some one good thing for society." Motoring Public Awaits Cadillac Announcement The fact that the Cadillac Motor Car Company has not yet made an nouncement of its new product is probably causing more comment and arousing wider-spread interest than I anything that has taken place in the motor industry for some time. "What is the Cadillac going to bring out?" has become the question most often asked by manufacturers, deal ers and the automobile public in gen eral. Guesses without number have been made. They have run the whole gamut of possibility, but nothing has come from an official source to con firm any of the conjectures. That the interest displayed does not arise wholly from curiosity is shown in the brief statement of Cadillac Sales Manager Howard regarding orders al ready booked for the forthcoming product. "In spite of the fact that we have made no announcement of our plans,"' said Mr. Howard, "our dealers have now on hand more than 2,000 orders I for the new car." As usual, the interest concerning the Cadillac is not confined to present Cadillac owners, but permeates all circles of dealers and motorists In general. It has been evident for years that the public regards the annual Cadillac announcement of the utmost significance. This is undoubtedly due partially to the fact that the Cadillac Company is the largest producer of high-grude cars, and to the further fact that its productions exert a far reaching influence on the Industry. The first Cadillac "Thirty" placed a car of high quality on the market at a price theretofore unprecedented. The Cadillac again led the field in the adoption of electricity for starting and lighting, and Its use of the same has led to similar designs by a number of other msnufartureres. In th» circum stances. the Interest In the forthcom ing iinnouncement concerning the new Cadillac, In which striking Inno vations and developments are prom ised. Is not to be wondered at. MOBILE IH win ran Affection For Old Love Terminates in Contract as Distributor For New Hupp B. C. Knsminger closed negotiations this week with the Hupp Motor Car Company, of Detroit, to represent them as distributor for twenty-two counties in this state. The Hupmobile was a popular seller with Mr. Knsminger when he had the agency for several years. Hut a change In the factory selling districts placed this territory in with that of the Neighbors Motor Car Company at Cleveland, Ohio. A branch office was then established in Harrisbtirg. Negotiations have been pending some time recently for a dif ferent method of distribution for this section of the state and ihe future arrangement provides for twenty-two counties under the jurisdiction of K. C. Knsminger. By this method Harris burg continues to be the distributing center for Hupmobiles, with display rooms at Third and Cumberland streets. And subdealers in the various counties will be continued and others receive their appointment through Mr. Knsminger. Consequently, Mr. Kns minger under the new contract deals direct with factory and is not a sub dealer through any other agency. Reports from Mr. Harris, the com mercial manager of the Hupp Motor Car Company, predict a bigger and better business year than last. A new office building is under process of con struction at the factory in Detroit which also provides dining room and other modern conveniences for the comfort of the employes.
