El O mm QjJ fO I HUD Car of tlie Hour 99 3 e A HUH Y A Onampion Performer The most recent championship performance of the Elgin Six was the estab lishing of a new record of 67s hours between Chicago and Miama, Florida, over some of the roughest, steepest mountain roads and through the heaviest sand and mud in the country. The Elgin improved, velvet-action clutch enables the Elgin Six to be started on high gear, under ordinary conditions, elimi nating almost entirely the necessity of gear shifting and remov ing the last barrier to the safe and easy driving of a motor car by women. The Elgin improved cantilever rear spring suspension, found only in Elgin cars, has set a new standard of motoring ease and cdnifort at high speed. You can safely drive an Elgin Six in comfort at 35 to 50 miles an hour over roads so rough that th average car is limited to half that speed. That this big, roomy, impressive quality car has been designed to sell at less than $1,500 is the most notable achievement of the year in motordom. $1,500 Quality at $1,165 I cordially extend an invitation to inspect the newest model of Elgin Six.

As proof of the kind of spirit which talented American young men are. putting into the war, one needs only to read a letter from Lieutenant Howard V. O'Brien, written from the front, and addressed to a member of a western Vigilance Committee of the American Defense Society. Read ing it increases our conviction that there is stuff in America which can "hold the line against any advance, and we print it because we believe it will increase the patriotism of our readers. Mr. O'Brien, who has al ready won some distinction in the field of letters, says: "I leave this week, 'going East with a destination I know merely to be France. What I shall do there has not been imparted to me, but I rather fancy advanced work at one of the artillery schools of fire. None knows so well as we, how much, there is to be learned in this game, and there are months of hard work ahead of us before we are fit to fight. "I hate leaving those who pay such an infinitely greater price than I; and I hate leaving my work. But if I come thru, the regard of my children will be the deeper and if I do not well, for them it will be turn down an empty glass, and a fragrant memory perhaps, after all a better legacy than an everlasting explanation of 'why daddy didn't. "If I come back it will be to write better books. If I don't well, there are too many books written anyway. So it's all to the good either way. "Hooray, for free speech and anti war, but while we're 'over there' it's up to you good fellows to keep the home fires burning, and the damned pacifist mouths closed! I'm a pacifist myself, but I don't want the Ger mans to know it until they are on their knees! "Again, dear doctor, my thanks for your kindness. It helps, believe me, to know that there are people behind who care." i Too Much.
