THE TREND IS TOWARD Increase 160% OF TODAY MITCHELLS The Autoist Who Seeks The beet equipment for hie car will make no mistake when he drlvee up to our' door. For here He will find all the newest and bent In auto supplies of every description,, We handle standard product* only and the satisfaction they eneure Is atteeted by the regular patronage of many of the most experienced motorists li� this locality. We Sell Warner Lenses Complies with the Alberta Motor Vehicle Act which requires two white lights in front. BAALIM MOTOR CO. BACK OF UNION BANK HARRY HOLMAN, Mgr. The World's verdict on Mitchell's-as built by John W. Bate-is becoming very evident now. There are 70,000 Bate-built Mitchells running. 80 70,000 owners, scattered all the world over, are voicing opinions on this unusual car. As a result, Mitchell sales last year nearly doubled any previous record. And this fiscal year's sale, for the first six months, increased 160 per cent, over last year. But the Ideal Mitchell which we aimed at has but lately been completed. It has been a slow evolution under Mr. Bate's direction-the final result of 700 improvements. It has taken three years, for instance, to double our margins of safety. This year, for the first time, we were able to announce our 100 per cent, over-strength. It has taken years to develop-to build and equip-this modern efficiency plant. This year, for the first time, we occupy our model body plant. So the Mitchell of today, with its countless distinctions, is just becoming known. The Mitchell Appeal The Mitchell offers at least 20 per cent, extra value, because of our factory economics. Millions have been spent under John W. Bate to reduce factory cost on this car. 1 It offers a lifetime car, because of vast over-strength. Our tests and standards are now based on twice tho usual margins of safety. And two Bate-built Mitchells that we know of have already run over 200,000 miles each. It offers 31 features-like a power tire pump-which nearly all cars omit. It offers shock-absorbing springs which have never yet been broken. And which make the Mitchell the most comfortable car ever known. It offers exclusive body styles, designed and built by Mitchell experts. And combining'all the attractions found in 257 show models. It offers beauty and luxury In rare extreme. In the past year alone we have added 24 per cent to the luxury cost of this car. It offers twj sixes, so no one needs to pay for room or power not wanted. The John W. Bate Idea The basjc Idea in the modern Mitchell was to eliminate factory waste. To build the whole car in a single plant at a minimised labor cost. The result has been to cut Our factory cost in two. Then to spend part of that saving to build an extra grade car. On a car of doubled endurance. On a uniquely complete car. On a car of unusual beauty. You will'see the final result In your Mitchell showroom today. Examine it well, and put it to the test. Compare it point by point-including price-with other like-class cars. See your dealer's list of the great engineers who selected this car for their own use. Do that for your own sake before choosing a fine car. It may save you many years of regret. MITCHELL MOTOR8 COMPANY, Inc. Racine, Wis., U. S.
