People are expected to donate freely of anything they feel disposed to give for the benefit of the Red Cross, which will be gathered up by the committee In charge, and sold to the highest bidder. This method bids fair to be a revenue getter, for a worthy cause. According to the statement of Benj. Matkin, who has the advertising in charge, the sports pulled off will be the best yet. including children's races, wheelbarrow and bicycle races, and a ball game or two, it is not definitely known yet which teams will play.

Tfie Reasons for Studebaker's Leadership STUDEBAKER is supreme in Canada because Studebaker Cars stand up and give the service. The Series 18 Studebakers are even better than the Series 17. They are maintaining the leadership the Series 17 established throughout the Dominion. Because they embody ninety distinct improvements in mechanical construction, convenience and comfort over the Series 17. Because they offer all the improvements, all the refinements suggested by four years' close study of the performance of 300,000 Studebaker Cars in actual service in every part of the world. In them Studebaker gives you the QUALITY that stands up and gives service under the hardest tests on Canadian roads. In them the many economies made possible by vast resources, the savings obtained through the development of steadily improved manufacturing methods and the installation of the latest and best labor saving machinery are turned to your advantage. That is why Studebaker is able to offer you so good a car at so low a price. That is why the Studebaker is a most economical car to buy. It is economical to operate because Studebaker's "made-in-Canada" quality reduces "upkeep" to> its lowest possible terms. It is economical to drive because of great gasoline economy in ratio to power, because of great tire economy in ratio to weight and carrying capacity-Studebaker owners frequently get from 8,000 to 10,000 miles on a single set of tires. It is economical to own, because it brings a very high second-hand value in case of re-sale or trade-in. For these reasons you owe it to yourself to investigate the Canadian-built Studebaker before you buy a car. Let us give you a Studebaker demonstration today.
