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.

New Model of Paige
Built on Chassis of
Record-Breaking Car
In honor of a world's stock chassis
record for speed, made January 21,
1921, Faige is introducing a new
model that will undoubtedly have an
especial appeal to sportsmen.
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. Built low,
with a turtle back body of rakish de
sign, it suggests in line and style the
tremendous speed and power Mul
ford demonstrated so dramatically.
The car has all the ear marks of
the thoroughbred. The body is fin
ished in an attractive red, while the
upholstery is blue Spanish leather.
The wheels are Houk heavy duty
wire, painted blue. There are Hert
ford shock absorbers front and rear
The car is a two-passenger design,
with a third seat that unfolds at the
side and a folding rest for the feet.
On the other side is a compartment
for tools. The new Faige Daytona
roadster will sell for $3,295.
Lincoln Motor Firm
Announces Price Cut
"The Lincoln Motor company has
announced a new schedule of price,
which emphasizes its product as one
of the leading automobile values"
states Bob Odell of Hannan-Odell,
In a statement which was received
by Hannan-Odell, Inc., from R. C.
Gctsinger, sales manager of the Lin
coln Motor company, Detroit, Mr.
Gctsinger -states:
"Our salee progress of the Lin
coln this year has been steady and
sound. In every month, our curve
of accomplishment has been higii
above that of the industry as a
whole. For March the industry as
a whole gained 62 per cent over Feb
ruary. Lincoln's increase was 200
per cent in April. In April the in
dustry increased 27 per rent over
March. Lincoln's percentage was
75. Not only have our sales held
up, but on the very day prior to the
new price announcement, we shipped
53 cars." '

Outside of the experience you would obtain by
actually riding in the car yourself, it is difficult to
convey abetter idea of the distinctly superior ease
and comfort of the LINCOLN than to cite that
persons who had been compelled to give up motor
ing, have discovered that the LINCOLN enables
them to thoroly enjoy long trips without fatigue.
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. It is higher
priced but fully worth it.
