The cat-may be driven across the tracks a; approximately the same rate, but tin engine is run at a speed which removes the danger of stalling . The distance is short ami a full throttle will insure better control and send the machine clear if necessary. I'sually the driver opens the throttle too suddenly, thus choking the engine. This is because the air valve yields readily to The increased suction, giving a sudden rush "of air before the spray nozzle can respond with sufficient gasoline. The throttle, whether by-hand or accelerator, should be opened gradually enough lo allow the en-pine to respond. Stalling the engine cn the tracks with the train approaching at high speed is a tickl:*h experience. im(. Ane VH>tribalon� tun Thf t*rmtncir fit 1 tn ; jpp:v. e '-.-> .0.

Model 39, Seven Passenger Touring Car Model 38, Four Passenger Roadster Introducing For The First Time In Canada The VEUE "BILTWEL" Bigger, Better, More Power Is the watchword of the Velie production. Velie cars are representative of the best in automobiles. The Velie Motors Corporation of Moline, Illinois, are one of thef'oldest established and most reliable manufacturing firms in the world. This concern has an established and envious record of long years standing as a maker of high-class vehicles and since entering the automobile construction field more than a decade ago, they have succeeded in adding to their reputation as makers of high class vehicles. The Velie Is Here To Stay And we know it will become an instant favorite with the people of this district, for not only does it appeal to the eye as a thing of beauty, but its worth has been proven by the thousands of Velies now in use in the State of Montana, under conditions quite similar to those obtained here, and the thousands of satisfied Velie owners in the border state, are the strongest kind of evidence that the Velie is the one outstanding automobile adapted to the needs of Alberta. The New Velie "BiltweF Six line Establishes New Standards of Motor Gar Beauty Nine superb body styles now clothe the latest Velie Biltwel Series. Every motor car enthusiast will appreciate the aristo- cratic lines, smart upholstery, choice coach finish, and wealth of refinement in those little details which please and satisfy and which experience only can produce. / The Leader in the Light-Six Field It is generally admitted that Velie made more automobile history the past year than a"hy other car, regardless of price. Now with a range of models more extensive than before, satisfactory mechanically in every respect, and a development of body designs distinct and apart from the commonplace, all Velie friends -owners and dealers alike will be proud of this new achievement. The Velie is by right of superiority, the leader in the Light Six field.
