in readiness for the drawing aside of
the curtains on the 20th annual Ari

ling in the matter of exhibits and at

promise of being the most elaborate
exposition of the w r ealth and resources
of a great state that has ever been
presented to the public of Arizona.
The attendance at the fair this year
will be larger than ever before, is
the prediction of the state fair com
mission. Already the capital city is
filling with out-of-town visitors, and
with excellent prospects of fair weath
er next Monday, a banner attendance
is anticipated for the opening day of
the exposition.

games and world famous circus at
tractions will constitute the major
amusement features. Splendid dis
plays of live stock, agricultural prod
ucts, poultry and the entries in the
domestic arts, domestic science and
fine arts sections, together with man
ufacturing exhibits and mineral dis
plays will form the basis for one of
the most comprehensive exhibit col
lections ever brought together in the
southwest.

Epidemic Os Auto
Mishaps Is Raging
Chas. McCauley, Santa Fe engineer,
| while driving alone on the highway
I toward Holbrook Tuesday morning in
his Buick automobile, suffered a
wreck which luckily terminated in
slight damage to the driver, but total
wreck to his car. It was reported at
| first that Mr. McCauley had been seri
j ously injured.
Ted Burbage oue evening last week
j upset in his Buick roadster a few’
| miles east of town and wrecked his
j car almost beyond repair.
! Joe Kleindienst was able to be
around the first of the week after hav
ing been laid up for awhile as the re
sult of injudies received in a bad spill
on the Holbrook road.
Andy Blevins succeeded in settling
a case out of court wherein he col
lected damages from a tourist for hav
ing run into him at the corner of
Third and Williamson a couple of
weeks ago.
F. W. Howe, manager of the Ideal
Laundry, had his big Studebaker bad
ly smashed in an accident while re
turning from Phoenix via Pine and
Payson the first of the week. A
tourist forced him to run his car in
to the side of the mountain on a
sharp curve, with the result that the
car overturned and broke the top off,
and smashed the Steering wheel. The
accident occurred near Payson, and !
Mr., Howe drove into Winslow with
only two parts of spokes of the steer
ing wheel left to steer with.

ed with Mrs. Marguerite Rose at the
corner of Third street and Apache
avenue, doing considerable damage to

Willys-Overland Cuts
Price pf Coupe-Sedan
Willys-Overland makes its most
startling announcement of the year in
the official statement from its Toledo
headquarters that the price of the pop
: ular Overland Coupe-Sedan is $585,
f. o. b. Toledo, making it the world’s
lowest-priced car w r ith doors front and
rear.
This unexpected move is made pos
sible, continues the announcement, by
the tremendous demand which has in
creased closed car production to un
precedented peaks, making available
greater economies because of quantity
production, which are to be shared by
the motor car buying public. In par
ticular is this true of the Overland
Coupe-Sedan. Never before in the his-

new body coloring of Willys Blue, is
expected to be the cynosure' of all

“The latest price announcement by
Willys-Overland marks a new era in
the history of closed cars,” is the
opinion of W. W. Franklin, head of
the Franklin-Overland company. “It
places closed car comfort, conven
ience and protection against all kinds
of bad weather, at practically the
price of an Overland open car.
“The Overland Coupe-Sedan is by
no means a novelty or an experiment.

peculiar and distinctive advantages,
has firmly entrenched it as one of
motordom’s most successful models.
“Salesmen, merchants and farmers
have found its removable rear seat
