their duty at dance halls; many po

until they become Intoxicated, the
dancers are usually orderly; minors,
and often small ahlldren are permit

At one dance, given by a church,
as a "benefit affair, many little chil
dren were found "outrageously
drunk,' according to Mrs. Bomn'i

ended to mob a policeman who closed

There are no important -world's records which
refer to a stock car that the Hudson Super-Six
hasn't won. The best former records are too easy
for the Super-Six. The events are too easily won.
For instance, in the 24-hour recordi 1819 miles, it
exceeded the best former record by 52$ .
And the Super-Six made the best time in the
world's greatest hill-climb up Pike's Peak. The
best time for 100 miles. The greatest distance
covered in one hour and the fastest time for a stock
chassis at the rate 102 ' miles an hour. '
Here we prove again that the Hudson Super-Six
has more endurance than we have ever claimed for
What can be more convincing than that round
trip across the continent made with a Hudson
Super-Six light weight 7-passenger Phaeton?
previous records were made with roadsters and
stripped cars, but the Hudson at all times carried
three, and sometimes four passengers, and with its
baggage weighed in excess of 5,000 pounds.
Remember that the Super-Six is a Hudson in
vention controlled by Hudson patents.
A hundred cars have motors of like cylinder
capacity. Many cars have more cylinders. But in
the Super-Six vibration has been reduced to almost
nothing. Thiit adds 80', to efficiency.
Cars here for immediate delivery.
