Montana, where he attended the sprlns automobile show, and he states that the Velle has made such wonderful strides lit the past year that the model on display was the cynosure of all eyes at the show. "Down in Montana the Voile Is looked upon as one ot the.most satisfactory cars on the market." said Mr. Karren to the Herald oa his return. "It has stood the test there under just such conditions as prevail here, and I predict that the Velle will make an instant hit with the motorists of Southern Alberta." The Velle Is built by the well known Velie Corporation, for years one of the largest manufacturers ot vehicles in the United States. The company Is' one of the strongest' in the motor car field, and they are leaving nothing undone to give assurance that will stand as a guarantee behind purchasers. They have beeta manufacturing automobiles for many years. Nine models are put out by the Velie company, including Model 3S. five passenger, the touring sedan, the cabriolet, the town car. the Model S9, seven passenger.. the four passenger roadster, the two passenger roadster, the coupe and the four "passenger sport model.
