Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta t?t\UK TWELVE* 1 HiS lfi HUHiOOK UAlftHliAia- A Letter to Autb Owners From Lethbridge Automoblfe Club Lethbridge. Alberta, March 30. To the motorists of Lethbridge  *nd district:- The Lethbridge Auto Club was organized in 1S17 to maintain the rights and privileges of those who- use motor vehicles; to promote national legislation governing the use of such vehicles: to assist and ehcourap; 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 ear-mark 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. The Leihbridge^Auto Club Is in a position to gfv'e this league great support as well at receive great benefits for itself. Fifty per cent of the automobiles in Alberta are in the southern district, and it is thus possible for {his club to lead all others in membership (which also means representation In the league.) We should have the strongest club in 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 welt 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. When a spring of an exhaust valve breaks and it is necessary to run the car to a repair shqp. 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 yalve. as it then may be operated as a suction valve.

Inspector Ainswortli who is In charge of tho road department In tho large territory mentioned above is now busily engaged lining up his crews and his foremen, and lie knows In advance how hard .it will he to get men. In the sumntor of 1914 it was possible to get a man and four-horse team for six or seven dollars a (Jay; In fact tho man who secured . tho job considered .himself lucky. It was a cuse then of .getting tho money, not Xow howevor most of these men aro working; from daylight till dark in the great campaign of production, and even at $10 a day Mr..Ainswortli Is loath to '- coax a man nwr,y from his farm - to Ko to work'on the ronda, Still � roads must ho built ninV maintained If Alberta in to ml to1 tho markets the results ot its production campaign. Tho result is that tliu tractor Is likely to play a mbro Important part In road construction' and rtialnfomihce '� this year than over hotore, and It: Hits proves to bo tho ca�o a now era In road making in Alberta Is at hand. For tho tractor has proven Its worth In the middle western Htntoa.

THE NEW SERIES 19 STUDEBAKER CARS in three models, embody Stydebaker long experience' together with the latest and greatest achievements of some of the ablest and most experienced engineers arid production experts in the automobile industry. These cats arejww throughout, with improved motors, intermediate transmission, newaxw^Dodies, 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 30,000 miles un^er the severest conditions, through the mountains and country roads of the United States and Canada, and finally over the Chicago-Speedway. Never were we better satisfied with the performance of any cars, in power, speed, endurance and riding comfort. To make assurance double sure, tbe experimental cars were run on the Chicago Speedway continuously unjil they negotiated 50^000 miles or more, about twice the distance around the earth. These cars are the masterpieces of the Studebaker organization.  ,;; , The neW cars include thrwe models, all entirely different an3 each with an individual appeal. We. Know these cars will-give our customers maximum service and economy, with practically uo expense, for repairs; .except from .wear and tear, or In the case of accidents. !"

During 1915,1916 and again in-1917,.more Studebaker cars were registered ana operated in the city of Detroit-the city which knows automobiles and the standing of manufacturers-than any other make of 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-of floor space, and represent an investment of over $15,000,000. Thero are no ''assembler's'^ profits in the prices of, Studebaker automobiles, because they design and manufacture pur 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 will be entirely pleased with their purchase., GRAHAM MOTOR COMPANY 412 Sixth St.," S., Lethbridge, ;
