It is foand that many people who

Vote for Peace.
[United Press Leased Wire Service.]
SHEBOYGAN, Wis., April 2.—More
than eight hundred votes were cast in
the GermanAmerican war referendum,
which began here yesterday. Most of
the votes were cast by church goers,
after they bad listened to pleas
against war from the pulpits. German
propagandists also have been active.
The city is not unanimously back of
the propagandists, however. Several
pastors bitterly denounced them and
the referendum. Yesterday's vote
was overwhelmingly for peace.
Last spring many thousands of car buyers
delayed their choice too long. They found our
output two or three months oversold.
Don't wait as they did. It means long regret

No Car Like It
The Super-Six motor is patented. No other
car offers anything like it.
The difference is enormous. This one inven

almost doubled endurance.
The Super-Six holds all the worthwhile rec

tance performance, nothing has ever matched it.
But it excels above all in endurance. It broke
t£e 24-hour record by 52 per cent. It twice
broke the ocean-to ocean record in one continu

Why It Endures
The thing we fight is friction. That wastes the
