the serious-minded seeker after the
truth about motor car values this marked
public preference for the Detroit Electric
For it meant tKat the largest single
buyers in America has
reached the conclusion that the Detroit Electric
is die car that offers the best investment.
Remember, there are enclosed automobiles lower
in price than the Detroit Electric. And there
are enclosed automobiles higher in price.
Yet far more buyers of the "all-year-round"
type of car select Detroit Electrics than any
of higher or lower price, or of
gasoline or electric type.
Evidently then, it not price that has Von for
Detroit Electrics this place of prominence in the
of critical motor car buyers.
It is the car itself—its quality—its performance
—its visible, provable superiority—that has
earned this overwhelming endorsement Strong
claims for Detroit Electric performance are
easily proved by a practical road demonstration.

Getting to Howard in the early In

Marshalltown's misplays, the Clinton
Pilots scored six runs before the home
I team had drawn blood in the opening
frame of the season on the home

eventually won by a majority of 6 to

people witnessed the game.
Coming* from behind, after they
were apparently hopelessly beaten, the
I home guard made a determined effort
I to claim the verdict, staging two ral

tallies of tieing up the returns.
Howard's service, which was "nuts"
for the visiting aggregation, slips in
fielding ly the home outfit at critical
stages, some swell fielding on occasion
ly the visitors, and the break of luck
united to defeat Boyle's boys in the
first home game.
At that the game was not devoid of
its thrills. Hitting, was free in both
camps, and the raily of the local corps

Howard Driven From Slab.
Howard, the Denver youth, was on
the board for the opener, and when
he mounted the deck at the conclusion
of the opening ceremonials, he car
ried the faith and hope of the great
crowd brought together to start the
season off with a victory. For one in
ning he looked the winner, his curves
breaking nicely and the first three
'linton batters being retired in order,
one on a foul to left field and the
other two via first base.
Then it happened. Errors paved the
way to Howard's downfall in the
second and a fusilade of healthy swats

moved Wilkes to the far corner, from
