How the New Hudson,
most streamlined car with the
silhouette, brings you room
and comfort never before
able in an automobile.
You've seen them flashing by in all their
sparkling color —those trim, gorgeous
New Hudsons with the low. streamlined
But have you really examined one of
these amazing cars? They are the big
news in the automobile world today!
Hudson, al way i known for great forward
steps in the development of the auto
mobile, and for efficient use of motil e
power, is again ’way out ahead with a
motor car that hits a new high in efficient
use of space—that makes a greater per
centage of its total space actually avail
able for your use and comfort.
When you take a close look, you’ll find
that Hudson, through the use of a new,
exclusive “stap-down” zone, reclaims so
much usually wasted sjxce that this
sensationally efficient car gives you more
useful interior room than you’ve ever
before experienced in an automobile
This new kind of motor car has a sturdy
foundation structure surrounding the
paseeuger compartment, which permits
the floor to lie recessed down within the
base frame so that you step r/wn when

entering. 1 his makes s|ace between
frame members, which is usually wasted,
available for use inside the car.
Seats can thus be lowered to harmonize
with the new, lower top. and by stepping
down into Hudson, which is only five
feet from ground to top, you get more
head room than in any other mass
produced car built today!
And how about sooting room? Hudson’s
new design reclaims space formerly taken
up by wheel housings and protruding
fenders. This is accomplished by placing
rear seats ahead of the rear wheels, in
a zone unrestricted by wheel housings.
\s a result, rear seats are 15 inches wider
in this car that is only little more than
four inches wider over-all. Both rear and
front seats extend the full width of the
body, giving Hudson the roomiest scats
in any American-made car! Hudson’s
use of the “step-down” xone and unique
seating arrangements are illustrated in
the sketches that follow

The Wengers are home—Fred and
his wife and son Robert and another
son Richard and wife who started
early this month on a 5,000 mile
motor trip to Fairbanks, Alaska. It’s
rough and tough, that 500 miles of
so-called road from Edmonton,
Canada north to Dawson Creek
where the 1,500 mile Alcan highway
begins. The road bears little
resemblance to modern hard-surfaced
highways and jagged rocks and
boulders take a terrific toll of tires
and springs, not to mention axle
deep mud. After traversing 140
miles of the route they turned back
and arrived here Saturday night. En

Mrs. Eliza Spangler, 76-year old
Bluffton woman was the oldest mem
ber of the jury which heard the
Washington Philpot manslaughter
trial in the Allen county common
pleas court last w’eek. Instead of
making daily trips from Bluffton to
the county seat, she decided to pack
a bag and stay in Lima overnight.
She’s doing pretty well—that 1 fl
yea old Guernsey cow owned by
John Smith, Bluffton Route 2. Fresh
last summer on August 5, she was
fresh again last Sunday. Just to
add to her record, she had had
several sets of twin calves, which
at today’s livestock prices should
make her owner happy.
Top-flight officials of the Nickel
Plate went thru Bluffton Friday
afternoon at 5:20 o’clock on a special
train powered by one of the road’s
new diesel locomotives. Heading the
group was J. W. Davin, president of
the line. They were enroute from
Cleveland to St. Louis. The trip
was said to be a routine inspection
of the company’s property. From
St. Louis they swung around on the
return trip through Chicago.
Some Bluffton area farmers like
the federal parity price setup—and
some don't. We found it out from
bouquets and brickbats that came in
following an item that appeared on
the subject in this column two weeks
ago. However, no one seems to
know how it works—and apparently
no one is particularly interested. One
farmer says “So long as they do not
put hogs down to $2.50, wheat at
40 cents and everything else accord
ingly except the things we buy, then
close the banks an make life miser
able for everyone, we farmers are
not worrying about the exact dist
ance from the backdoor to the poor
house—neither should you.”
