Car of tlie Hour

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.

An American Letter.
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."
Too Much. " '
"I'm satisfied from the evidence
that you were intoxicated." ,
'"Your Honor, any motorist might
knock down a telephono pole on a
dark night.",
. "I grant you that, but you mowed!
down six of 'em."
