sweeping success.
A few years ago tlie car owner
cranked his motor by hand. Some­
times it started. Sometimes it start­
ed backwards, and made business for
the bonesetters. When night came,
there was a tank containing gas, (un­
til it ran out ten miles from town),
and the headlights were fed from this
source. Today the fortunate driver
sits comfortably in the seat to start
the car with a push of the button.

ed with light. His possibilities are

the insignificant little 'battery hidden
away in the car. Good things deserve
care, and the battery must have it or
perish. Distilled water every week
or two is important. The charge
must be kept up above the 1200 mark,
or deterioration sets in. If the car
is to be left for a long time in the
winter, the battery will run down,
freeze, and much damage ensue. TUn­
fortunately the average man will take
a chance. To the rescue of these hu­
mans conies tho Battery Service Sta­
tion. At the Corwin Motor Company

well known EXIDK batteries and

Every Horse Displaced by Car
Frees Five Acres for Grow­
Every time an automobile displaces
a horse, live acres are added to the
agricultural area of the country.
Among the economic influences of the
motor car, this is one phase that is
commonly overlooked.
There are about 20.000,000 horses,
in the United States and each horse
consumes six or seven tons of food
a year. It is easily figured that an
average of five acres is required to
furnish food for each horse. This
means a total of 1M,"00,000 acresot
land devoted to pastures and raising,
hay—over 200,000 square miles. This
means nearly five states as lug as:
OliiQ—or area larger than Ohio, In-1
diana, Illinois and Jow i, devoted to
feeding horses instead of people. I
Of course the releasing of all this
area from pasture uses and making it
available for the support of popula­
tion will be a tremendous economic
gain. In a dozen other ways the auto­
mobile is adding more to the wealth
of the country, relieving urban con­
gestion, making men more efficient.
The automobile has done more to
bring better roads than all other in­
fluences combined and in this it is
stabilizing produce markets, decreas­
ing costs of transportation from the
farm to the railroad and making the
food resources elastic and responsive.
The past season witnessed the ar­
rival of another member of the grow­
ing automobile clan, the Dearborn
Truck Unit. This- consists of a heavy
frame with truck wheels equipped
with hard rubber tires and driven by
chains. A pleasure car is stripped
of body, rear fenders, rear wheels,
and axles. The new Dearborn frame
is bolted securely over the old car
frame, and special axles with sprock­
ets attached inserted in the differen­
tial housing. Chains attach these
sprockets to the sprockets on the new
truck wheels, and presto, yott liaye a
track capable of carrying a load up
to o.OOO pounds, with a nine-foot load­
ing space. Practically all of the
weight is carried on the rear wheels,

What is it that sets Chalmers
Here arc a few reasons. Only a few. Read
them. Then come to us and let us prove to you
that meaning of the word Quality—in a motor car.
The Chalmers, inch for inch, pound for pound,
stands high above the other cars near it, in size or
Chalmers selects only the finest raw materials.
For the frame—carbon steel. For the axle shafts
and propeller shaft—chrome nickel. For the front
a :le~ drop forged carbon steel. For'the motor
casting—close-graincd gray iron. For the rear
gears—nickcl steel, heat treated to secure hardness
and toughness. For the transmission housing
aluminum alloy.
So it goes throughout the car from end to end.
Examine the Chalmers carefully. The deeper you
go the deeper you are impressed with the quality of
Chalmers materials.
Chalmers builds "from the ground up" in Chal­
mers own shops. Motors are Chalmers built, from
rough castings to the final test. Built with skill,
perfect facilities and untold care.
The motor is a light weight, high power six.
Wftlls are tested for uniform thickness, to prevent
the possibility ofdistorton and loss of compression.
A specially designed intake manifold improves
carburetion. Handles fuel economically. Insures
easy starting in cold weather.
The crankshaft is designed to transmit maximum
pOWer of the motor without distortion or vibration.

Transmission and Axles
There is quality in the transmission. In the
housing. In the gears. With Hyatt quiet bear­
ings. Gears and shafts are made of nickel steel,
case hardened. The transmission housing is cast
from aluminum alloy.
The axles are amply strong to withstand all the
stresses of hard service. The front axle is an
I-beam drop forging of carbon steel. Spindles are
extra large. With Timken roller bearings.^ A
disc protector keeps out dust or grit.
Rear axle: light, strong, simple. The identical
type used on some of the most costly American and
European cars.
