Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 7, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta frAGE EIGHT THE LF.THBPIDGE DAILT HP.RALD SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1917 Exhaust Echoes Garage Gossip NEWS OF THE AUTO WORLD With the Motorists of South Alberta AUTO CLUB'S FIRST TOUR TO THE GLACIER PARK WAS A PLEASANT OUTING Very Few Went, But Fortunate Ones Counted Themselves Lucky Probably tho Lethbridge Auto club's first tour wasn't all It should have been in point ot numbers, but those members and their friends who did j make the trip to Glacier Park last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, can apeak of nothing but the success of the trip In every other way. Ideal weather, magnificent scenery and excellent service at. the hotels and chalets controlled by the Glacier Park Hotel Co.. all went to make the outing a most delightful one. So enthused, in fact are those who made, the journey, that other parties are being talked of and another tour is likely to be arranged for the near future. Very few Lethbrldge people had ever made the auto trip to Glacier National pnrk. and although ft joins the Wnterton Lakes park along the boundary, thereby forming what might be called an international park, atill local autoists had always held the idea that the trip was a long, arduous one over rough roads, and the pleasure to be found didn't compensate for the inconvenience. But the trip is easy. Just 93.9 miles put one at the Many Glacier hotel, which is right in the heart of the mountains, with peaks S.OOO to in,000 feet high ranging all rouud and with beautiful lakes, glaciers and waterfalls on every hand. Of this distance the last 12 miles are over a fine motor highway 55 miles in length, built by the U.S. government and running through the pnrk from Glacier Park station on the G.N'.R. main line, to Lake McDermott, on the shores of which Many Glacier Hotel is built. At the entrance of the park at Glacier Park station is located the Glacier Park Hotel. Each ot these two big hotels will accommodate 400 guests and have all modern improvements. They are built on the Swiss style and are most pleasing in appearance. About midway between the two hotels, or 92.9 miles from Lethbrldge. are located the St. Mary's Chalets, on the shores of the Upper St. Mary's lakes, where the St. Mary's river rises. The Lethbridge party, after spending' Sunday night and Monday at Many Glacier hotel, motored to St. Mary's Chalets where they spent Monday night and Tuesday forenoon. These chalets are in charge of E. E. Heagle, who warmly greeted the Lethbrldge party. Up till a year ago Mr. Heagle owned and managed a hotel ot his own at Mirror, Alta., and Al-| berta people will always llnd a warm welcome when they visit St. Mary's; Chalets. On the upper St. Mary's lake is a launch which plies twice daily between St. Mary's Chalets and "Going to the Sun" camp, ten miles up the lake. In making the trip all the papers necessary are the ordinary passports for men between the ages of IS and 45. There are no foramllltes In connection with crossing the line with a motor car. Both the Cnnadfnn and American immigration agents are vary obliging, and parties going and returning by the Twin Lakes port will have no trouble. * For the convenience of those making the trip we append a log of the road which If followed will take motorists to the park road without trouble. The trails from Kimball to the park road are fine at present, though dlflliculty would be experienced In wet weather.

Rowed, of London, Says Canadians Are Now Demanding a Strictly Made-in-Canada Product "The automobile buying public of Canada is turning more and more to Canadian cars, built for Canadian roads," says S. H. Rowed, distributor of Studebaker cars in London, Ontario, and Ticinity. "The Studebaker cars, built at Walkerville, are deservedly popular with the motorists of this country. These cars are built for the wear and tear ot Canadian travel, and the public unquestionably appreciates this fact. "In the great Studebaker factories at Walkerville, every detail of manufacture, inspection, testing, etc., is given the exhaustive attention characteristic ot Canadian manufacturers. Studebaker engineers have concentrated on one basic design for four years; refining and improving wherever possible. The new series 18 cars are really an evolution; actually based on the experience of thousands of owners in every part of the Dominion. "When the London Are and police departments wanted motor cars that could bo counted upon for motoring speed and efficiency, but economical in upkeep, they chose Studebakers. Both the police and flro departments of London are equipped with Studebaker "Sixes" at the present time, and they are giving tho utmost in service and satisfaction. "When tho Patriotic fund campaign was in full swing here there was a large force of Studebaker cars on the job The cars carried tho Kiwanis citib crew through all kinds of weather, helping to make their canvass the success that it was. "Since establishing myself in tho retail automobile field in eastern Canada I have made all my big sales drives with "made-ln-Canada" cars. I believe in giving the motoring public what they want-and from the way pur spring business has opened up, hnd continues, it is quite evident that Canadians want Canadian-built cars. From present indications our sales for 1917 will far exceed those of last year."
