NEW MODEL OUT SEPTEMBER 12 "We have Just completed the moat suo oesefivl year In our h story." said Rich ard IL Scott, vice priS.dont and general manager of the Reo Mo-tor Car company, when on August 20 the factory superltv tendont Informed him that the lout car f the 1916 series had been shipped. '"Our volume of business for the last year has been SO per cent more than the year previous and our growth has been' steady from the day Reo was In corporated In 1905. "We have always underestimated or If we did not underestimate, we underpro duced the Reo demand. This year we fell short of the mark farther than ever before, and while it Is a source of much ratification, u Is also . regrettable that for several weeks there will not be a new Reo car for sale anywhere in the 'world. "Our original plans were such that the factory run on material for the 1916 mod els would be completed about the last (of September when the new models were to be announced and ready. In our ef forts to meet the insistent demands of the last few months, however, we put on 'an extra shift and that, of course, used up the materials more rapidly. Despite the fact that we made several thousand more Reus than we originally planned, till the material was used up before that for the new .models was ready. As a result there is now a gap between pro duction seasons 'when It is impossible to buy a new Reo. "Shipments of the new models will be gin September 15, and as our announce ment will appear on 8ei.ember 13, we anticipate an avalanohe it orders for them. ttrmand Alt Sce.on. "Perhaps the moot significant an well as the most encouraging feature of the Reo business during the last year is the Indication that this Industry has ceased to be one of season The difference In demand for cars in September and May was not noticeable. Of coiirws It Is difficult to gauge the demand when you have a chronic over-demand such as Reo experiences. "Notwithstanding, there was a marked difference between this and former years in that the demand continued thrmuih the season. It seems Just as brisk now. H Is due of course to the fact that peo ple have found the automobile Indispen sable in the winter as well an In. the Bummer, and I expect to see the demand even greater than the spring demand in the future, for the reason that buyers have come to know that tho actual new models are brought out in the fall sett son and that only by buying them can they be sure of having a car for the spring use. To wait until the spring ao tunlly opens means that it will be im possible to ret any of the more popular' makes of cara" New Hudson Sedan Touring Car Suffs Buy Dr. Shaw New Car to Replace One Seized for Tax When her two-passenger Saxon car was taken away from Dr. Anna Howard Shaw by the New York tax officials and the Question of another to replace came up, Dr. Shaw's suffrage friends decided that an automobile of larger carrying capacity ought to be pur chased Inasmuch as the car has to be used to a large extent for suffrage cam paigns In Now York and New Jersey.

Gossip Along the Automobile Row Every Record in ' Chalmers' History Broken in August "Monday, August 23, closed the biggest sains day in the blggost sales month In the history of the Chalmers Motor com pany," was the announcement of C. A. Pfefftr, vice president and assistant gen oral manager. During this week alone two train loads of Chalmers oars were shipped esat to distributers and dealers In the metropolitan district to apply on orders which have been piling up faster than night and day production oould take care of them. This record Is all the more remarkable, following as It does on the heels of reo ord breaking sales In July, during which month more Chalmers cars were sold than In any preceding July. Mr. Pfeffer attributes the bulk of this business to the phenomenal success of the valve-ln-head overhead camshaft motor, which la installed In the seven passenger Chalmers "Slx-40," and an nouncement of the popular Light Six, which formerly sold at tt.926, to sell at 11.580.
