The Motor Dealer and Service
ARTICLE NO. 4
STABILITY
By L. H. HAGERLING
T. B. Wildermuth, president of the
Front Market Motor Supply Co.. has
been confined to his bed for Uie past
week with a serious case of the "flu."
Reports from his office today say that
he is recovering slowly and will soon
be around again.
A first requisite of proper* mainten
ance is the stability of the company
from which you are going to make
your purchase. During the past 18 to
20 years the automobile industry has
witnessed many, fly-by-night com
panies. both factory and local and as
a result we have many thousand au
tomobile orphans whose commercial
value have no rating, even to a de
gree that the second hand merchant
will not buy them at a sacrifice. This
causes the cost pftr mile to become
abnormal due to depreciation and its
effects are not only felt by the unfor
tunate owner, but also by the auto
mobile dealer.
Sound business Judgment will lead
a purchaser to investigate not only
the merits of the product that he is
considering, but also the stability of
its representation. It is very strange
to say automobiles are sold time and
time again on snap judgment.. It may
be possible the size of the car suits
the purchaser or the price may be
in accordance with his judgment, or
still it may be the terms which today
play an important part in sales. *
Sales, however, of this character
while they may occur frequently are
not the sales of any large volume

The Idea of the Inventor of this Job was to build what he called a
"mad locomotive." Forty years ago Mr. Oeorgo B. Selden. of Rochester.
M. Y... never dreamed of the automobile of the present—of a touring car
that won 10 run easily forty or fifty in ties an hour*, of a racing model that
would go two miles a minute. His own dream was of light "road locomo
tive" that would carry the farm product to the city market and would run
as fast the second or third hour as a good home would the first—B to 10
miles an hour.

MOORE ACCUSES
LEVER OF TRYING
THE 'GAG' RULE
Senate Delays Vote on Agri
cultural Appropriation
\ Bill
Waslilngton, Feb. 1. —After re
maining in continuous session more
than twelve hours, the House late
last night completed work on the
annual agricultural appropriation
bill, but a formal vote was delayed
until to-day by a demand of Repre
sentative Stafford, of Wisconsin, Re
publican, for a reading of the en
grossed measure.
Complaint of the practice by which
salaries may be raised by depart
ment heads, was voiced during de
bate to-night but an amendment by
Representative McLaughlin, of Mich
igan, Republican, to .prevent any
"alary increases to employes receiv
ing the $240 a year increase author
ized in the legislative bill if given
through other legislation, was de
feated 58 to 84.
Representative Moore, of Pennsyl
vania, Republican, led a fight on the
salaries provided for the bureau of
markets, declaring that the bureau
was a "detriment to business," and
that a "saturnalia of graft" was be
ing practiced for the benefit of Dem
ocrats.
When Representative Lever, in
charge of the measure, obtained a
vote closing debate before Mr. Moore
had completed his efforts to amend
individual salaries, the Pennsylva
nia Representative accused Mr. Lev
er. of attempting a "gag rule." The
outh Carolina Representative said
he wished to end a "gagfest."

Americans Start on Relief
Mission in the Near East
Paris. Feb. 1. —The expedition for
the relief of Armenia and Georgia
under the direction of the American
Commission For Relief in the Near
Bast, left Taris for Constantinople
last night under the leadership of
the Rev. James L. Barton, foreign
missions lie will be accompanied by
Ernest Watson and William Peet.
Two hundred American workers will
take" part in the expedition.
Three ships, carrying clothing,
flour, medicine and farm implements,
now en route from America to Con
stantinople, will be unloaded at ports
on the Black and Mediterranean
seas.
within themselves, that is to say, the
higher the grade article handled the
less frequent snap judgment plays a
part and stability plays hands down.
A real estate merchant spent his
time and money to prove a title, and
to insure his purchaser that the prop
erty lie is selling is confined to with
in certain lines which are on record
In the engineering department of ti
city, a recognizee permanent asset.
How many buyers of motor care,
either passenger or truck, give a pur
chaser the same consideration? Very
few, indeed. In my experience, which
covers a good many years in the mo
tor car field the question of stability
appears less frequent than any other
important factor of which I can re
call.
Who of the business men of Harris
burg, the men who plan are not in
terested in bigger and better business
and its fundamental principles. They
sit at their desks and plan and cal
culate, devise ways and means of bet
ter and bigger business, and' beyond
any question of doubt all their plan
ning and their calculating have a di
rect relationship to stability.
The ultimate aim of a motor car
dealer should be to make the owner
feel that they are glad that they pur
chased that particular make of car
from that particular dealer because
stability was a prime factor. There
are many items which enter into the
first sale, but the much sought after
repeat order depends largely on actu
al performance and service coupled
with stability.
