SIX CYLINDER CARS POPULAR "The passing of the four cylinder In the quality car class Is as certain as night follows day," said Bert S. Bingham, assistant general sales The unparalleled popularity of "Nobby I Tread" and "Chain Tread" Tires is founded upon the fact that they really stop Skidding and absolutely give greater Mileage on all roads in all weather. It is the grinding and gruelling wear and in use on the automobiles of the West means tear that they "stand up" to that has alone just one thing—that these famous tires have established for United States Tires their well "made good/ 1 earned title of "Mightier Than the Road.'' • . .

AUTOMOBILES manager of the Pioneer Automobile company. The above statement was made by the Pioneer Automobile company's representative upon his return yes terday from an extensive trip, during which he visited many of the sub agents of his company in northern California. "You would be Indeed surprised," said Bingham, *'to find out how the six cylinder Chalmers has jumped into favor with not only the residents of THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1. 1913 the larger cities and towns but also with the. ranching fraternity. "It seems to be generally under stood among all classes," continued Bingnam, "that the six cylinder Chal mers, with its new device for the saving of gasoline consumption and other important features, including the new T head motor, is the greatest production ever turned out by the Chalmers Motor company at its big plant in Detroit, Mich. As a conse quence, we are looking to see the biggest selling year that the Pioneer Automobile company has ever ex perienced In the distribution of Chal mers cars in northern California." "In demonstrating the new Chalm ers six in the country," said Bingham, "it is laughable to note the expres sions on the prospects' faces when they sit behind the wheel to drive. The smooth running qualities of the motor, the absolute lack of vibration and easiness of control are the factors making an instant hit, and the way the car negotiates grades in the high gear (where the average four cylin der car has to go into its intermediate and low gears) practically sells the car Itself without any persuasive ar guments from the salesman." WILL RECEIVE TRAINLOAD OF BUICKS Howard Auto Co., Distributers of Well Known Make, Will Receive 88 Cars Soon. Once more all existing world's rec ords have been shattered by the Buick car and a Buick organization. This latest world's record comes as the result of the work done by O. S. Howard, head of the Howard Automo bile company. Pacific coast distribu ters of Buick and National cars, when on his recent-trip to the Buick plant at Flint, Mich. In speaking of this new record How ard says: "The Buick factory is to ship the Howard Automobile company a solid trainload of 88 double decked freight cars, containing .from 415 to 425 1914 model Buicks between the Ist and 10th of November. This ship ment.- which is the largest and most valuable shipment.oC flrst class freight ever made in the world, is.valued at approximately $5"25,000, and breaks th.c previous- world's 'record, also held hy the Howard Automobile company. This record was the shipment of. 75 double decked' freight cars containing - 375 Buick's, valued at which ar-' rived -here. January 2, 1913.. • OVER 400. BUICKS "This- trainload of more than 400 Buicks' is' an additional' allotment which I- was. a,ble to f-rom the factory,, and in no way interferes with the shipment of our regular al lotment ' which is JO per cent of the fa'ctopy' output. This percentage, at the 'present time is'mofe than. 10.0 cars per w.eek; in other words, .we will receive more than 825 new 1914' model Buicks between now and.the 29th of November. _ 'This numb'e.r will just about put us 'even with our or-, ders, a-nd we hope to be able to make immediate delivery, on some of the models for. a short time, at least. The demand for the new Buicks has been so heavy that we -have been un able to retain demonstrators, for our own use, and any number of sales have been- lost through our inability to make or promise delivery. The trainload shipment will contain quite a number of the new six cylinder Buicks. This is the first year the Buick factory has ever placed a six on the market, although they have been experimenting with sixes very extensively for two years, and the present model has been in 'the hands of the experimenting department for the last year. EXTRA FIXE MOTOR "The motor used in this new model is of the famous overhead type and is guaranteed by the makers to develop more power and use a lower grade of gasoline than any other type of motor made. The motor has a 3*4 Inch bore and a five inch stroke, and the cylinders are cast in pairs. The Delco lighting, starting and ignition, system is built right into the car itself, and has been simplified to .a point where it is practically trouble proof. The steering wheel is located on the left hand side, while the' emer gency brake and gear shi.ft lever are In the center of the car, handy to the driver's right hand. A full floating rear axle Is used, and the car has an unusually smooth acting breaking system. There are two independent pairs of brakes, each pair working on drums on the rear wheels. "The lines and finish on the new six compare very favorably with the style and finish on the most expensive cars, and are very much better than any thing heretofore seen on a six selling at anything near the Buick price." Auto Owner Drives Up Granite Steps "The automobile is the vehicle of the man of strenuous life," says A. E. Theisen, secretary and treasurer of J. W.'Leavitt & Co., agents for the Overland car. "Not contented with burning up the roads and highways, and into the steep mountain grades of California. Pitcher Malarkey of the Oakland baseball team, has lately been amus ing himself by driving up the granite steps of some of the principal build ings of Oakland. His latest sensa tion was enjoyed driving up the steps in front of St. Mary's college in Oakland, where he created quite a furor among the students of the noted college across "the bay. "Malarkey says. In explaining the incident, he is trying to find some thing that the Overland model '79' won't climb. It has been suggested to him to try the telegraph pole route, but the only objection is that the narrowness of the poles pre vented the chances of getting proper traction. "MRlarkey has a standing offer that there is not a grade or obstruc tion but what can be surmounted by the Overland if any vehicle, horse drawn or otherwise, can negotiate it."
