He insisted that Admiral Sims had not agreed with tbe department's views as to tbe necessity of protecting transports, and told the committee be bad found it necessary to re mind Admiral 81ms several times during tbe war tbat tbe first duty of American destroyers abroad was to protect tbese vessels. The admiral's course regarding tbe protection of troop ships caus ed tne department -mucn anxiety, the secretary declared, and Anally he "bluntly" told Sims that every thing was "secondary to the safe guarding of vessels carrying Amer ican soldiers." ' Upturn Trips Fniraardrd. Mr. Daniel charged that Admiral Sims withdrew the destroyer es cort from the first convoy as soon as it arrived abroad, leaving the transports without protection for the return voyage. Admiral Gleaves, in charge of the convoy system, doubted the authenticity of Admiral Sims' order directing the destroyer forre to proceed to Queenstown, and made an investigation. Ad miral Sims, he Raid, finally was in truded to protect the ships when they left France. Referring to Sims' testimony that the first trip convoy, sent over in June. 19i7, was not attacked by submarines, and that there was no submarine wiihin 300 miles of the place where tbe attacks were said 10 have occurred, the naval secre tary presented messages from Ad miral Sims giving accounts of such attacks. The witness also presented re- porta from Admiral Cleaves regvd- w ura smacK mm rrom the Franca general staff renrriinr ,h ence of submarines la the vteip'jy 01 in convoy: . i ? - , S Keaaea to DraM SIms. . "We had no rataann hn bave no reason now to doubt Ad miral elms own positive state ments, made at tbe time, that the convoy was attacked; the report of Admiral Gleaves and the official re port of the French general staff to the same effect This u mi k nrat or only instance in which Ad miral Sims has stated before this committee that statements made in his official dispatches to the depart ment during the war were not to be relied upon." Mr. Daniels charged that Admiral ficial documents to support his con tention that the convoy svstem was originally sponsored by the Amer ican navy and that it nnt adopted fully until several months after the United States entered the war and had sent many destroyers and other crart overseas, thus pro viding the ships to make the oper ation of the convoy system possi ble.

Nbt simply because its mastery is indisputable. Rather because this question is vital above all. It must always be so. It must always be the measure of any car's title to worth. Hence undue emphasis has never been placed on Hudson's four year's . leadership in fine car sales. Largest sales are not infallibly proof of greatest merit. Hudson has no need to offer them as such . ' -$ Yet their importance cannot be overlooked. Here is the massed opinion of far the greatest f number of owners of any fine car in the world. Some are driving the earliest Super-Sixes built now more than four years old. Some acquired Hudsons but recently. But how unaminously they hold no car can rival it What 90,000 Owners Know First Hand Those who have had their Hudsons longest are perhaps its most emphatic champions. They know it best They have seen it pitted with triumph against every situation that can confront an automobile. Today their Super- Sixes are giving service, such as is literally beyond the performance capacity of many new cars that cost more. . Certainly no fine car i3 so highly regarded by such a large following. &e What It Has Done Were its position less deserved could Hudson hold the loyalty of all these? Were its su premacy less decisive, surely five years must have discovered the rightful successor. But time only brings fresh evidence cf Hudson leadership. In speed in power in acceleration ia hill-climbing, have never been matched. The most abusive tests to which a car was ever subjected have failed to find its endurance limit. Could other types adopt it, they might share Hudson's unmatched ability. But Hudson controls it. By right cf invention Hudson alone can use it , It will not be possible to supply all who want Hudsons. So even though you may not want your car for several months, now is not too early to place your order. COUGHLIN SALES CO. 421-423 WEST FOURTH STREET R. Kieth & Co., Wheatland, la. C L.
