Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETTIBRIDCH* DAILY HERALD1 SATfnOAY. MAHCU Op.' 101* If Mfopwi .Are Finding Many ^% Uses for the Automobile '.few Years Ago the Idea of a Woman Driving Motor Car Was > Considered to Be Very Preposterous. Women! Automobiles! Most err-tainiy! Yet it was only ji few years bko that to the average woruan an a;i;.>nn)bile meant only a distinguished j nr.d luxurious conveyance. which wmild cradle her over the c!ty streets cr roupu countrv roads with the com'( fort and speed of an express train, so It seemed. The idea of a woman driving n motor car was preposterous, out- > . landish to women as well as men. She j didn't know anything about it; she couldn't even start it. But to her an automobile ride was always an exhilarating experience much more so than ro trail behind "faithful old Dobln." or a spirited thorouchbred in an unromanUe vehicle , even though she had to relinquish the � driver's scat, together ;wlth the pleasure of handling reins, and had not the Slightest opportunity of experiencing tho thrill of driving a-powerful motor-] car. The best automobile, made then was only partially.perrWt.�J ttrtiipared w.'th the modem caf,'and; thfe^tendency of nianufai-turerS'belne*'towftrd big heavy ; machines, it was l'raW[> anyone  but a strong man thorohjhly.vertotf'ltf the whfms and capHces- of gasoline jnotors. to handle a mdtor-car. Tlemember factg,,are. being recalled to your minds about automobiles �Which existed several years ago. Development of Car _ Of course the development of the automobile has been influenced by the experience which manufacturers had �with those cars of previous years, the) ' results being that the modern car is the extreme antithesis of earlier models. Light weight, simple construction, dependable service, comfortable, easy to operate, and reasonable in price, the motor car of today can be operated, with equal facility by either women or men. That is the first thing woman ought to know about an automobile-about a Jbodern automobile-that she can run CHEVROLET BUILD it with perfect ease nnd safety. She can wind in nnd out through crowded traffic, go anywhere with greater easo and moro safety than it sh3(>vere talking. tSh^ doesn't need to worry about the car. It is designed to bo operated entirely from tho driver's sea�. TheVmotor is started by almply pressing a button, another button lights all tho lamps on the car. Everything necessary to run It can be done easily with the hands and feet. More women are driving automobiles today than ever before. On the j busiest city streets, on the boulevards ; and on the country roads far from home, you will find women-thousands of them-driving all kinds of motor. cars much confidence and skill I as a mnju ^"Mearm Contentment. The" automobile has brought greater contentment into tho lives of women than any other thing in recent Tears. It has shattered the shackles" of cu's-f toms which - kept wronten 'in the -nar-' ro\* ipooCSS* oJFtha'VQme. entirely de-pejMtMlOwnnf-Bi&n;and-has -.opened up. a" - nefw world ToV^TQieni-� .-wbxid  oX' bet,te5j�&e.alth. wholesome  recreation, selWowfdCnce. convenience, independence, Joy, pleasure and contentment. It is no longer necessary to setj aside a whole afternoon, 'for making just a few calls because so much time must be squandered on riding in street cars.' Your automobile is waiting. It invites you to go any time and drop in on your friend for just a shorty chat. Yours is the great satisfaction of giving pleasure to your friends-of doing good for others. This is something else women ought to'know about owning an automobile. Aside from this the automobile saves a woman many steps when she goes on her shopping expedition. Her purchases often go home with her and she does not have to wait until the next day for them. Something About the New Models Now Being Sold By Baalim Motor Co. tho "l^^Ml^lSRSBrlsJ �n ideal invwtiftnfcmw; , Us, djiallHo* Sj. owner �r� maker. | Yon.mtHit sit �* toctor to apprecia the bartnien,t for,-thaw luggage. - When one hears or sees the name Chevrolet one is apt to think only of tho famous 490-A model. tA grefrj number of. people are-;un-aware that this is niVvlwSOT Ui^' case. The Chevrolet Mptor Cot'of ;\Canad& are building several bthe* hew; models. There is the F. A. Model made in the touring car known as the Itoby Grand. ' This is an automobile of proven merit. Though never before manufactured in Canada, this model has won great popularity in tho United States where the splendid reputation,of Chevrolet products was built up largoly by the Baby Grand. The car has been refined, improved and strengthened to -withstand the severest tests of Canadian' -highway conditions. Built with a magnificent low-slung streamline body, the Baby Grand is unusual at its price. Never before has a car of-such impressive appearance been obtainable for less than fourteen'hundred , dollars. The Ipw-slung well-sot poise of the riding coach indicates a security of balance and alertness that tells the hidden power, the endurance, and flexibility of this vehicle. And the curving streamline is not-merely for= the sake of beauty, but is constructed along highly efficient lines in order to eliminate air resistance. The Chevrolet Baby Grand possesses all the essentials of pleasure-giving, economical motoring. This car has every requirement for power, speed and endurance. The valve-in-head type of motor construction insures both power and speed. -Chevrolet manufacturing methods insure' a high standard of mechanical excellence. Again there is the Royal Mail Roadster built on the same chassis as the Baby Grand. For those seeking, a car of lightness,, power, comfort and distinction, tenable in-roojulnee*-of of Mochalila n, a^Rlvttutfjbf vehicle) is watertight c^m.. mmfcdatldn'^otl ThUU roadsterIs jita lmo!or cars on the Canadian market. The body is a delight to the eye. Not an angle anywhere-only a series of curves, that blend harmoniously. There is a grace'in Its poise-a richness in Its finish-which is highly ois-tinctivo. And the body has moro than looks-it has comforf.easy riding qualities, and unusual vspring suspension. Quality materials of guaranteed excellence are used in its construction throughout. All visible woodwork Is of- genuine mahogany: and all metal parts from"; door locks to steering p03t and wind- j shield are of bright nickel. The in-  visible foundation of the body is built t of pressed steel.  j Elegant upholstering of French-1 pleated leather surrounds the extra | deep seats, wide backs and spacious , door pockets.

PRIEST 322 6th Street South Accessories Sar^dLpther It Stopped the trend to Eights and Twelves. BY WINNING ALL WORTH YHILE STOCK CAR RECORDS TH EDUSON SUPER-SIX, REESTABLISHED THE POPULARITY OF SIXES. AT FIRST BUYERS DID NOT REALIZE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SIX AND A SUPER-SIX. SO WHEN THEY COULD NOT GET PROMPT DELIVERY OF A SUPER-SIX THEY BOUGHT A SIX. NOW THE DIFFERENCE 18 UNDERSTOOD. NO OTHER CAR HA8 A MOTOR LIKE THE SUPER-SIX. IT IS EXCLUSIVELY HUDSON. READ HOW IT DIFFER3 FROM ANY OTHER TYPE AND WHAT IT HAS DONE. Two years ago, with ua and with others, the trend was toward motors of the V-type. We were then the foremost builders of the light weight Six. Its advantages and limitations were fully understood by us. Its smoothness of operation quickly made the Six the accepted type over Fours. But as the motors were developed limitations were encountered which prevented the realisation ef engineering ideals. The problem was approached principally from tffe standpoint that If added cylinders were adopted, all such limitations would be banished. For a time it seemed the Six would cease to command the leadership it had maintained. Just before the New Yerk Automobile Show two years ago, all interest centered in motors of the multi-cylinder type. But at the Show, the Hudson 8uper-Six made Its debut. Then Instantly interest swung to it. We claimed a new type. The factor which had limited the efficiency of ail types. Fours, Sixes, Eights and Twelves-had been discovered and overcome. a new principle In design had bean revealed. What had been sought by leading engineers for years had been found by Hudson. The simplicity of the Six could be retained. Motor limitations had been removed. Added cylinders were not needed. So leadership, bacause of that, was accorded the Super-8lx. The .trend to the multi-cylinder was arrested. Numerous makers gave up their Eight and Twelve cylinder.plans. THE SUPER-SIX SHOWED THeVaY Hudson engineers approached the |H)bble^i from a new angle,;. They se|v�d it with a methemsticijl. principle upon which a basic.patetit wai g>*n'tee^;:j,il*i.thai'.slhgle Invention the jr--* : "- ' ' ' regardless' power wair, .. ... ....^ the esr/was,tried for^endur^nce;It_____ never ihtstjidkOh, motor: car*\b�f|^Vi^^eM^hln�)t via think essentfat\te" eff'oi�"ey- ThejMar.e eff/cftne/. Vou will, see by what the''SuperSIx has done In winning all worth-, while stock-car:-tecords that our^laJlWsto.JW% increased' efficiency fV�n^Mt^boast. -^^WW**^;- � GREATER PROOF OF ENDURANCE Until the coming of ,th� Super-8lx pra'etreally all record* for speed, acceleration,'hill climbing and endurance were held by Foura. The Sixes had .'net'.dpne much.- A few records had been won by car* of the' multi-cylinder type. But' the 3uper-8ix Instantly changed that condition. We first proved the endurance of the Super-Six by running a stock chassis 1819 miles in 24 hours. That beat the beet previous endurance record by 52 per cent. It is perhaps the world'a most coveted record. |Vife^showed- greater pflwer by.. �winning the Pike's Peak Hill Climb," the greatest "nonstock" event of its kind. And we defeated twenty .famous contenders In the world's most trying power teat. * We proved road service by driving a 7-passenger Super-Six Touring Car from San Francisco to New York In 5 days, 3 hours and 31 minutes. Then we turned around and went back, completing the round trip in 10 days and 21 hours. Thus twice in one round trip with a single car we established America's greatest, proof of endurance. (lt was the first car to ever attempt'the round trip against time. ... Our Invention gives more power without added cylinders or weight. It gives quicker acceleration and adds.a yet unknow degree to the,endurance of the motor. All this came from the solution of that one problem which engineers had been unable to solve. The power that had been wasted in the motor itself was delivered where it was useful and available. THIS TURNED INTEREST BACK TO THE SIX " But many did not distinguish between a Six and the Super-Six.* As a result all makers of Sixes profited. Many buyer$ though by what the. SuperrQiXiinad shown that any good Six could do as well5'S?i- when-they found it difficult to get prompt delivery'of a Super-Six they accepted a Six. Now they knew there is no similarity between Sixes and the Super-Six save In the number of cylinder* used.' They know that without the Super-8ix all motors are limited as to efficiency. They know that with the Super-Six invention . any motor.of one, two, four, aix, eight or twelve cylinders � deHvers more power1-Is more flexible and will' give longer service many time* over. And they know that being patented such efficiency is exclusive to the Hudson Super-Six, -. It is the only known principle by which such efficiency . -may be obtained. THE GASOLINE SAVER The Super-Six possesses many other exclusive' advantage*. One is the gasoline saver, a device which adds gasoline mileage. By it the low grade gasoline now on the mtrket Is made more efficient. At a nominal, charge It can be quickly Installed on.,any Hudson 8uper-Slx not so equipped. Note the variety of models in which the Hudson Super-8lx Is produced. Every taste is met. Every comfort la provided for. . It is a fine car in every sens* of the word. Men who want the fineat will not be content with - less. One year of the Hudson Super-Six convinces us it I* the only permanent type thus far produced. . The Phaeton, 7-passenger, $3050.00. Roadster, $3000,007 Letfcbridge Corner 6th Ave. and 6th Street SIX Motor Supremacy The answer to the performance powera of Saxon "Six" la located in the motor-the famous Saxon "Six" highspeed motor. It gives a performance today which is probably as' near perfect ** ha* ever been attained. In high gear work, in pulling power, in smoothness and flexibility Saxon "Six" gives a performance that aeems Incredible in a car of its price class. ! Illustrations are moat readily given by comparison so we have compared Saxon "8ix" with other car* in itu price class of fewer, cylinder*. At a apeed of 20 miles per hour this "less than six," under test, developed 1512.7 power Impulses per minute. ; Saxon "Six" showed 2993.82 impulses per minute. Under the same working conditions Saxon "Six" motor, showed nearly 98 per cent, greater continuity-greater smoothness-greater uniformity of torque. '..A comparison of these figures makes it quite apparent that "a lea* than aix" motor leaves much to be desired. ^Tri*:;flerc*st foe a motor oar ha* to face i* vibration. Vibration Induces friction. The less number of Impulses per minute, the less smooth I* the powerflouw and the greater . lis Aha vibration.. Carrying this comparison of the "Six" and the "Four", Into an actual performance test', the result was astounding;1, and just how much advantage obtains from the 98% -moother.power-flow of Saxon "Six" is readily apparent;' Thi* well-known car.of "less.than six" cylinders, previously mentioned, required 30 seconds to reach a 45 mile* per hour *p*ed from a atandlng start. Under the same condition Saxon "Six" duplicated this feat-in 23 seconds. This showed 22% faster pick-up In favor of Saxon "Six." The hill-climb test illustrated what this smoother power-flow means in developing greater, pulling power. Thla "less than six"-shifting gears once-cllmed a mile long hill in two minutes flat. Saxon "Six"-without shifting gear*-did it in one minute and two seconds. ^ These instances are not cited as extraordinary performance* of 8axon "Six." Nor la anyone to view them as such. They are representative of the type' of performance Saxon "8ix" give* day in and day out. > v k In the last analysis engineers' teats are the' only basis for comparison. These tests are made under equal conditions and under the impartial, unprejudiced Inspection of disinterested engineers. These tests, which, w* have made, prove to us conclusively: -that vibration is the fiercest foe a motor car ha* to face. -that the amount"of vibration is dlrect|y proportionate to .Impulse*; In ,th* motor. , apprortfmataly, 98%j. more power than' ;;tne' .'ilesii' than �ht": motor, greater-.contlnulty-.greater imooth- m#%
