The return trip (40! miles) WES made in 11 hours 28 minutes running time. The total elapsed time for the found trip was 24 hours 10 minutes, including time out for eating, re- plenishing fuel and oil and for customs in- No spare tires or tubes were ear- ned. No tire chains were needed. No mechanical troubles developed. The same driver, Mr. J. W. Banis, drove all the way.. Mr. H. P. Merchant of the B. F. Goodricli Tire Company and Mr. J. R. Getty, of were Mr. L. A. Miller, passenger. Every little while a 'Franklin Car in some section of the country sets a new ,road recorcl or makes a clean sweep of an economy, or reliabilily event. Kecenlly Franklin drivers have made numerous 24-hour runs and dis- tance trips which prove that the Franklin Car is unsurpassed at pUing up large mileage in a day's driving-over average highwaya or over all dirt roads.

Making time in a Franklin does not consist of spurts of 60 to 70 milee an hour over every straight stretch of good road, alternating with long stretches of annoying slowness, over roads not so favorable. ,The secret of the Franklin Car's ability to make faster average time over long distances than any other car is giniply that the power of the Franklin Car is not handicapped, hy heavy weight or rigidity arid their attendant dangers, driving strain and discomfort. The light weight and flexibly built trankhn holds the roads at all speeds, hugs the turns, smooths out the rouch stretches and is practically never held up by tire accidents. B.S. WILLIAMSON CO.

H. of Indianapolis, a non-professional driver, recently established 3 record for his section of the country for a 24-hour road 'run by covering 832.13 miles of road in 22la hours' actual lime. The (rip was made in a stock model Franlrlin Touring Car, without ballast, shock absorbers, or any chsng: from regular equipment. Air.

A motoring sensation wcs created in the state of Ohio when Cliff'Leuders, without stop- ring tlie engine of his Fraiitlin Touring reduced the touring time horn Cincinnati to Cleveland and back. He covered ttic 553 miles in 15 Kours and 45 minutes of actual running. The odds were 4 to 1 that' the previously could not be made. Covering this speed is tliouglit by Ohio motorist! to be scve-e test of any motor vehiHe, so bad are the roads. Yet the Franklin averaged .over 35 miles an lioiir. Rain which froze on the riders and lumed into a blinding snowstorm added to the difficulties, Observes, Mr. Robrrl Bther, Automobile Editor, Cincmnaii Enquirer; Mr. I'onell. No of any nature were necessary during the trip. And the mileage of the hit twelve hours was as big as that of the first iivclvc hours, indicating that th< driver felt Jittle or none oi the fatigue ordi- narily to be expected. Two other Indianapolis motorists, likewise driving Franlclins, also the former distance record. That, too, lud keen estab- lished by a Franklin Car. vy.-k ;
