THE BEE: OMAHA, SUNDAY, JUNE iz. Pierce-Arrof Progress Shown By Run of Trucks Veteran Machine Cliws Off Over Two Hours From New York-Boston Trip New - Model Does Better Yet. Child's Hand Operates Clutch of New Lincoln Progress achieved in a decade of motor truck manufacture was dem onstrated dramatically May 28 by the Tierce-Arrow Motor Car com pany of Buffalo when the historic Xewr York-to-Bobton run made in 1911 by America's first worm-drive truck was repeated. The identical truck, which made the tun in 1911. known as Fierce Arrow truck No. 1, covered the route again. It was accompanied this i time, however, by the latest product of the ' Fierce-Arrow com pany, a dual valve five-ton unit. Although more than 10 years old, and with 175,000 miles of daily serv ice to its credit, the veteran clipped two hours and 20 minutes from the 20-hour record made 10 years be fore. But the old-timer was no match for its modern brother, which 1 made the 240-milc journey in 14 hours and 43 .minutes, its engine-! governed to normal speed. ' I ruck No. 1 pertormeil just as its makers designed it to perform 10 years ago," s-aid Robert O. Fatten, truck sales manager of the Fierce Arrow company. "Old as it is, the truck fulfilled the speed, load-carrying and endurance specifications which it originally was designed to meet. 1 "But the record of the dual valve truck , presents a contrast which shows strikingly the advance of manufacture and design. The most powerful truck engine built carried thf five-ton load over the road in three hours less time. High-gear speed on hills, even greater coasting ability and a faster normal speed told against the surprising performance of veteran. "Ease of control and driver-comfort wefe other faclors that counted in the test. "Thus, to the qualities of durabil ity and reliability, for which Tierce Arrow always has been noted, we have added more power, greater speed and gretcr utility." Truck No. 1 is historic in automo tive history, t is one of the famous "first fifty" group of Fierce-Arrow trucks, 48 of which outlasted nine jears of service.

The latest member of the Faige family is a "6-66" roadster, built on the chassis that gained so much dis tinction when Mulford covered a measured mile in 35.01 seconds, a rate of 102.8 miles an hour. That rec ord was made on the ocean beach at Daytona, -Fla., and approximately enough the new Paige will bear the name, Daytona model. The design, finish and equipment of the Paige "6-66' Daytona rcadstcr are quite in keeping with the event the car commemorates.

We are wonderfully delighted with the LINCOLN. We have driven it one thousand miles with my mother, an invalid for twenty years. At the end of our first trip to Chambersburg, 159 miles, she was not even tired. - I have owned three and been pleased with them, but the LINCOLN far excels all.
