Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta VAUb tWELVbi- A Letter to Autb Owners From Lethbridge Automobife Club Lethbridge, Alberta, March 30. To the mdtorUU or Lethbridge � nd district:- The Lethbridge Auto Club was organised In 191? to maintain the right* and privileges of those who- use motor vehicles; to promote national legislation governing the use of such vehicles: to assist and encourap: construction and maintenance of good roads, and to advocate a reasonable regard on the part of motorists for the rights of others using the highway. In addition to pleasure trips in 1917 the Club was instrumental in having the' Transcontinental Highway logged from the Saskatchewan boundary to -Crow's Nest, via Lethbridge. This log has been published in several motor magazines, and will appear in the Canadian Blue Book for 1918. By co-operation with other clubs the Alberta Motor League was formed. This organization has been instrumental in securing legislation in which the Government has not only committed itself to earmark and spend every dollar of automobile license fees on good roads, but considerable further sums, and the Government is working in conjunction with the Rural Municipalities to the end of not only expending vastly larger sums on good roads, but leading to greater efficiency and more economy in the expenditure of public funds allocated to highway construction and maintenance. �ss^^sass^aisBMsiM-M - The Lethbridge Auto Club is in a position to give this league "great support as well as receive great benefits for itself. Fifty per cent of the automobiles in Alberta are In the southern district, and It is thui possible for (his club to lead all others in membership (which also means representation in the league.) We should have the strongest club tn the province, and it is up to every auto owner in Lethbridge and district to see that this Is accomplished. Do not leave It to half a dozen to shoulder the burden because their benefits are no greater than yours. Let each and every man that drives an automobile take up this work because it is pleasant and profitable, as well as being a duty you owe this community. The fees for 1918 are $5.00, which includes membership in Lethbridge Auto Club and Alberta Motor League, along with the league's badge with the club's name inserted. Yours faithfully. V. E. GREEN, President. J. RUSSELL OLIVER, Sec'y. BEAUTIFUL LINES ID NEW STUDEBAKER Graham Motor Co, Receives Its Demonstrating Car-New Lines Feature When a spring of an exhaust valve breaks and it is necessary to run the car to a repair shtjp. it may be well to go about in this way: Remove the spring from the intake valve of the same cylinder and put it off .the exhaust valve, because it is possible to run the motor without a spring on the intake aralve, as it then may be operated as a suction valve. Few cars can show such a change In IJnes as does the 191$ model Stude-haker now seen on the streets. J.T. Graham of the Graham Motor Co.. distributor for the Studebaker, has just received his demonstrating car, a light six.^and It has caught the eye of the motorist on ovory turn. In Its opening announcement of the Studc-jbaker No. 19 series, the company says: The new SHulcuaker car hi three models embody #>ur long experience together with tne latest and greatest achievements of some of the ables; and most experienced engineers and production experts in the automoby-' industry. These cars are new throughout, with improved motors, intermediate transmission, new axles, bodies, tops, windshields, radiators, hoods, fenders, etc. They are beautiful in design, thoroughly modern and mechanically-right. Before finally approving these cars for production, experimental models of each car were driven thousands of miles under the severest conditions, through the mountains and country roads of the United States and Canada. And finally, to make assurance doubly sure, they were driven tor days and weeks over the Chicago Speedway.

During 1915, 1916 and again in-1917, more Studebaker cars were registered and operated in the city of Detroit-the city which knows automobiles and the standing of manufacturers-than any other make ot car selling over \500. The lesson is obvious. Studebaker factories at Detroit, South Bend,, Chicago and Walkervllle, occuply 108 acres, contain 4,704,118 square feet'ot floor space, and represent an investment ot over $15,000,000. There are no "assembler's" profits in the prices of. Studebaker .automobiles, because they design nnd manufacture our parts in our own plants, saving our customers from twenty to thirty per cent. We commend these cars to the public and seek their patronage, in confidence that they win be entirely pleased with their purchase, _ . GRAHAM MOTOR COMPANY 412 Sixth St./S., Lethbridge, ,.3 ,4 J ;
