We are positive that hundreds of such cars arc on the hidings, particularly in the western districts. lresumably these cars are beirur held fi.r 'later con signment. but we must eliminate the 'later' and 'et these cars nun Inp now. We emphasized our state ment that dealers themselves should under no circumstances lose time in unloading ami turning freight cars tack to the railroads. If every trilling delay is eliminated the situa tion will be much less sev te titan the present outlook indicates and motor car dealers will benefit to ;i decree proportionate with their ef forts to relieve the shortage." It was added by tho executive that there are fewer freight cars in active service now than at any time in the last three years. Tho campaign undertaken by Iod?e Ttrothers is in lino witli the advice of the director general of the railway administration, who con ceded a few flays auo that there was grave danger of a freight car short age. In asking shippers to give their cooperation, he suggested prompt, loading and unloading of freight cars, and hauling by motor truck as the most important means of afford ing relief. Tho first aviator to fly across the Knglish channel was Louis IUeriot, of France, who flew from Sangette to Dover on July 2 3. A new type of enclosed (;4r de sign, known as Hush panel con struction, h.;s made its appearance in tho Cole atro-eipht all seaon models announced recently by the Cole Motor Car of Indianapolis. It is an exclusive fo!e feature which not only makes the enclosed car body strong r. but Kains the ad- vantages of great r roominess, e lim inates squeaks and rattles, and yields' a more artistic iinish. Tireater strength had been attain ed in the new Hush panel body be cause it is a sinle unit, while under the old method strength was sacri ficed in binding together the several parts which composed the body. Permanent pillars add- another element ot strength and rigidity to the flush panel body, precluding the chances of squeaks and rattles creeping in. At a glance one is impressed with I the fact that in the Cole aerii-oightj enclose! cars ali u'iy protrusions; havo been removed from the body leaving only the artistic iinish of a luxurious motor car fitted to the requirements of driving in all sea sons. From frame to toof th body lines are unbroken, and a grace contour is obtained which banishes any possibility of confusing the per manent enclosed car with one uaing a makeshift demountable top. (Jreater roominess is another ad vantage secured in tho tlush panel type- of enclosed c ar body design by the elimination of all sustaining braces required in the former meth od. Increased comfort is the re sult of this increase of room within the car and new refinement in up holstery and trimming is made pos sible. Flush panel construction lends it self perfectly to the aerotypo lines which have been the distinguishing marks of tho Cole aero-eight, oven the square corners at the top and rear having been preserved.

You Will Recognize It At a Glance It comes in the same beautiful green that distinguishes the Essex touring car. The body is simple with the newest square lines, low roof, but with ample head room, wide doors, deep seats and high backs. Has Large Car Comforts With Small Car Costs For one reason, men speak of the Essex as they do, because of its costly car finish and equipment. The Essex has no useless length or weight and no sac rifice has been made in any of the com forts. It has all the passenger space that larger cars afford. You have but to ride in an Essex to know its comfort. There is the large car's solidness about it that removes all sense of its weight or size. And yet its size gives distinct advantages. It makes the Essex easy to drive. It can be steered with two fingers. It can be turned in a short radius, parked in a email space, and of course there is an im mense saving in operating costs. And, too, its size accounts for its cost ly car quality at a moderate price. It Is Just as Lively As the Other Essex Many will tell you the fastest automo bile rido they ever enjoyed was in an Essex. ' Others say it is the quickest and live liest car in acceleration they know. We leave it to the Essex to reveal those qualities. But rest assured it is not sluggish. It gives way to no car where acceleration, speed and comfort of driving and riding are concerned. The season when the Sedan will be most enjoyed is approaching. So you should speak for your Essex without de lay. The one thousand in service, to say nothing of ten times as many touring models in use, indicates a continued Essex shortage.
