The World's Greatest i Automobile Trade-Mark The Hudson Triangle has become great because of the car behind it. i From the "Triangle on the Radiator" to the electric tail light every atom of the car has been through the ! crucible of the Hudson En ; gineering Board. Only accident or misuse can prevent a Hudson owner ' getting 100% pleasure and I service from his car. In the j hands of tens of thousands j of users, the world over, its ! supremacy is demonstrated ' daily. ! The Company Behind the Trade-Mark The Hudson Motor Car Company is as famous as the Hudson Car. Its mar velous success has come from giving the public what it wants at the price it wants. The "Triangle on the Rad iator" is the signature of the Hudson Motor Car Com pany. Buyers accept it as a bond guaranteeing in their car everything needed to make it as good an automo bile as the world's best engi neering skill can produce. Come—see the Hudson Six-40 and Six-54. The . cars that have swept competition aside like cobwebs. At $1550 and up these cars with the famous "Triangle on the ' Radiator" are outselling everything else on the market. I. W.

SATURDAY EVENING, TIRE MAN TELLS OE PRICE REVISION Explains Advantages of Standard Price Plan to the Motor Car Owner E. H. Fitch, control manager for Diamond tiros in this territory, an nounces: "Diamond tires will be sold in accordance with the 'Fair-List' price plan. This is In furtherance of the ef j fort to establish a fair basis upon which tire sales may bit established—a basis that will be fair to producer, dealer | and consumer alike. I "It is not a price cutting: war involv ing manufacturers, either. Rather It is said to be an effort on the part of the tire men to protect the consumer from concerns which slash prices in discriminately so that the buyer is puzzled to know whether he is getting the best or the worst of it. By the tire manufacturers taking the bull by the horns ,as It were, and making substan tial reductions in the retail list It is thought that the interests of the owner will be better conserved and that there will be a better feeling between the I man who makes the tires and the man who owns the car. "Automobile dealers declare this latest move on the part of the tire in dustry will be a big boom for their business as it will encourage those 'prospects' who have been somewhat backward In coming forward because of fear of tire expense. One dealer said to-day that already he could notice the Influence of.the reduction on those who came into his store to inspect the l'JtG cars. "Good dealers everywhere are co-op erating to handle Diamond tires on a 'Fair-List' basis. The records of Dia mond service for 1914 show that more than ft!) per cent, of the many thousands of Diamond tires sold ' lasted much longer.—went much farther than the guarantee called for. More than Hit per cent, of the hundreds of thousands of Diamond tires in use last year gave more mileage than the purchasers naid for. Every mile beyond that which the buyer expected was velvet for him. "In addition to the extraordinary mileage and freedom from trouble that you get in Diamond Squeegee Tread Tires you can now buy them at the fol- i lowing "FAIR-LIST" PRICKS: Diamond Diamond Size Squeegee Size Squeegee SO x 3 $ 9.45 34 X 4 $20.35 30x3% 12.20 36 x 4% 28.70 32x3% 14.00 37 x 5 33.90 IS x 4 20.00 38 x 5>4 46.00 "The Diamond 'Fair-List' will be pub lished throughout the country, so that every tire purchaser will know the ex act price of the tires he desires to buy. There will be no occasion for 'bargain ing' or 'haggling.' Every purchaser will know that he is getting his tires for exactly the same price his neigh bor pays, and every dealer will be on an even footing witli other dealers. In other words, and to create a paradox, there will be a square deal all around."

MAXWELL CARS IN I ...... . , . , ; •' f;* 0 - v ■>' • if; 5* »* <*. . •- «• . • . • The above it a portion of a fleet of Maxwell Cart used by the Motor Trans port Corps of the British Army at Booysina Camp, Johannesburg, South Africa* during the recent rebellion under the rebel DeWet. This fleet played a moat important part in the snppression of the rebellion, the fighting of which took place m the roughest section of South Africa under British rule. No harder work was ever attempted by pleasure cars, especially as most of the country over which they traveled was without roads. The cars covered over fourteen hundred mDes> the first campaign in the rebellion, carrying extra heavy loads and with the rough est possible treatment to which the picture gives mute testimony. The wonderful wsy that the Maxwell Cars went through the entire campaign without trouble of •ny nature, proved their durability and power and»the high praise of the Corp 4rivcrs is still the talk throughout South Africa. Rickenbacher Joins the Maxwell Racing Team With but a few days remaining be fore the practice work that will pre cede the Vanderbilt Cup race on the Exposition course, a new twist was given the probabilities by the an nouncement that Eddie Rickenbacher had made a change of base, leaving the Peugeot camp in Los Angeles to join the Maxwell team, which is es tablishing headquarters at that point. Rickenbacher arrived in San Fran cisco, Tuesday, after an exchange of telegrams with Contest Manager Paul, Hale Bruske, of the Maxwell team. Terms were readily agreed upon and a formal agreement signed on Wed nesday. The former Peugeot pilot, though a youngster in years, has been riding fast before the American pubic since the Vanderbilt Cup race of 1906, In which he acted as riding mechanic for Lee Frayer, of Columbia, Ohio. He has competed in every Interna tional Sweepstakes at Indianapolis, either as mechanic or driver. During the past two seasons Rick enbacher has gained rank as, one of the very foremost American pilots. The official compilation of 1914 records shows that he competed In more events on road, speedways and track than any other American driver. He also had the honor of winning the most valuable prize cap tured last year by any American driver—the Sioux City Sweepstakes in which $25,000 was hung up for a 300-mile race that brought out a. Held of unusual class. In its dash, and in fact at some stages of the race, Rickenbacher is almost certain to ligure as leader. His style resembles, more than that of any other American driver, that of the foreign pilots who have so elee trllied motordom by their wild flights of speed and their reckless daring. His sensational driving in the re cent San Diego Exposition Road Race is still fresh in memory. In that event he turned laps many seconds faster than any of his rivals and was lead ing at 100 miles when motor trouble put him out of it. "I am glad to be back at the wheel of an American car," said llicken bacher, who is stopping at the Hotel Stewart. "I feel confident that, witlP Barney Oldlield and Hilly Carlson r:s teammates, the three Maxwells are going to make a combination that will be hard to beat in the Vanderbilt and the Grand Prize." "We consider that Rickenbacher will round out our team in a way that no other driver could," said Contest Manager Paul Hale Bruske, of the Maxwell forces. "We fully realize that Eddie will give our car a thor ough and searching test, but we be lieve, it will stand up under the pun ishment he will give it." The signing of Rickenbacher com pletes the Maxwell trio for the Van derbilt, but there still remains to bo signed a driver for the Baby Maxwell, which will be a fourth entry in the Grand Prize. Announcement of a pilot for this car will be made in a day or two, according to Mr. Bruske. MOTORCYCLE NOTES In order to keep its members in touch with the club's activities, the Keystone Motorcycle Club, of this city, now issues a monthly publication call ed The Keystone Motorcyclist.

HA.RRISBURG TELEGRAPH Mitchell Runs 30 Hours on Fifteen Gallons One of the most novel automobile demonstrations ever staged in Los Angeles was the nonstop run of a 1915 four-cylinder Mitchell "35," which finished last night. The run was engineered by William R. Ruess, Mitchell distributor, and took plartj on the salesroom floor of the William R. Ruess Company. The radiator was scaled. Fifteen gallons of gasoline were put into the tank, which was also sealed. Mayor Rose and Chief of Police Sebastian sealed the tanks and started the car, Monday. Ruess offered SIOO to apply on the purchase price of a car as the prize for the closest guess to the actual time that the car would run on the fifteen gallons of gas. There were several hundred guesses turned in and when the box was opened last night it was discovered that the winner had guessed within thirty seconds of the time that the engine would run. The Mitchell four ran for thirty hours and one minute. O. M. Doug las, R. F. D. No. 1. Rivera, guessed that the car would run for thirty hours, one minute and thirty seconds. E. C. Whip was second with a guess of thirty hours flat. Martha Canady, of 914 West Forty eighth Place, was third with the time figured at 29 hours 58 minutes. Fourth place went to A. F. La Rose, of 120 South Broadway. La Rose judged the running time just forty minutes off. During the thirty hours and one minute that the engine ran, it made 820,100 revolutions, or the equivalent of 349 </2 miles, averaging 23 3.10 miles to the gallon of gasoline. Dur ing the run the temperature by the motormeter ranged from 90 to 108 degrees. In the window where the car was placed, with the rear wheels rigged clear of the floor, there were stream ers running to the different parts which are features of the Mitchell construction.

Morton, local Chalmers dealer. Detroit is situ ated In Hat country' and there are no hills for testing automobiles within twenty-five miles of the city. But that did not deter these Chalmers engineers from devising a strictly scientific "hill" test. The hill Is in reality a series of elec tric dynamometers by which every Chalmers car Is tested. They cost |IOO,- 000 to install, eliminate the necessity of sending cars out on long road and hill trips, and give the same rseults In a far more scientific way than any actual hill test ever devised. The electric dynamometer system is one of the things experts generally figure on seeing during their visits to the great automobile factories of De troit. • in the making of this famous SIOO,- 000 "hill" test, the completed chassis of Chalmers are set in steel frames. Great ohbins are fastened to the rear wheels and to great dynamos, and run ning under their own power, the mo tors of the cars work against electrical resistance. Accurate instruments measure the horse-power developed by the motors, and expert mechanics Judge the fitness of every working part for long road service. The dynamometer test, lasting twenty-four hours, not only measures the horsepower of the motors, but also tests the strength and silence of Chal mers transmissions, clutches, rear axles, and other parts, all of which work exactly as they do In the road. The chart of each chassis is a record of scientifically measured work, with every chance of human error eliminat ed. By means of this wonderful test, ab solutely uniform quality is asured for every car turned out. It enables the Chalmers Company to guarantee that each car Is as powerful, smooth run ning, and sturdy as every other car of the same model. Across the Mountains in a Modern Motor Car In the early days of the automobile many people thought it was limited in its radius of travel somewhat in the same way as is the steam car. The steam car necessarily must have rails to run on. It was thought that the automobile would require level, hard roads in order to realize its full effi ciency. Owners and drivers of old time cars would have doubted very much that within the short space of a few years they would be able to cross mountains and deserts with their cars and consider it only a commonplace. The development that, has taken place in all mechanical details of the motor car was well shown by a trip recently made by a party of tourists over the Sierra Mountains in Califor nia. The mountains were crossed through the Sonor Pass, which is be lieved to be the highest pass in the Sierra Mountains. The altitude is 9,624 feet. After crossing the mountains the party motored to Antelope and Carson Valley, returning the same day via thp "SS" Pass at an altitude of 8,600 feet and then through Angel's Camp to Sonora. During the day the actual distance traveled was "58 miles, practically all of which was mountain driving. The next morning the party returned from Sonora to Stockton, Cal. The entire distance covered during this trip was 412 miles. Yet, as evi dence of the efficiency of the modern motor car, it, is noted that the Hudson Six required only two quarts ol' water to completely fill the radiator, and no water had been put into it at any time during the trip. Not a single adjust ment was made on the car. "OIU>F;KS WHILE YOU WAIT," SAYS DOIMiK BROS'. DEALER Tn view of the thousands of motor car dealers who attended the auto mobile shows, the experience of J. H, Hoffman, dealer in Dodge Brothers' motor cars at Muskegee, Okla., may prove of interest. Mr. Hoffman waited patienty for the arrival of his demonstrating car, although he had many sales hinging on its inspection by possible purchas ers. When the lirst Dodge car to reach Oklahoma arrived, at his sales rooms. he filled the tanks with gaso line, started the motor and mounted the car on jacks in his salesroom windows.
