D. S. Williannson & Co, Lethbridge Phone 1546 Terms MUe Test? Vou know, of course, that the Maxwell Motor Car is the long distance champion^ of the world. You have read that a "stock" Maxwell 5�pa8senger car ran fbr 44 days and nights without stopping the motor. And that, in the 44 days non-stop test, the Maxwell covered 2;!,0aa miles, at an average speed of 25 miles per hour. ^ But have you, up to now, realized the f>. speciad pistons, valves, bearing-metal or other parts had been used. Every other unit was as critically inspected. Then the car was re-assembled under their own supervision. ' As we had much at stake and the test was made in winter (November 23 to January 5) we asked permission to take certain little precautions against accidental stoppage. Sounds reasonable, doesn't it? But they refused permission to do any such thing. For example:-They would not permit a rubber cover over the magneto-It wasn't "stock." They refused to let us tape the ignition wire terminals-they are not taped on ^' the Maxwells we sell-so of course it wasn't "stock." Neitlier would they let us use a spiral coiled pipe in place of the usual sti'aight one from tank to carburetor to guard against a breakage from the cotiatant, unremitting vibration-it isn't "stock." Nor to use a special high priced foreign make of spark plug-thu run was made on the same spark plugs with which all Maxwells are equipped. ^ So rigid were the rules, we were unable to carry a spare tire on the rear-it-wasn't "stock." A telegram to headquarters in New York finally brought a , special permit to carry a spare tire. ."It isn't stockl" ^, fit isn't stock!" That was the laconic reply of those A. A, A. inspectors to every last suggestion that called for anything but the precise condition of the standard, stock model Maxwell that any ciistomer can buy from any one of 3000 dealers anywhere. We are glad now-mighty glad-that the rules were so strict and so rigidly enforced. Any other car that ever attempts to equal that record must do it under official supervision-and comply with the same terms. And it will have to go some. For Maxwell set the standard when it performed this wonderful feat. Maxwell complied with those rules-and made good. Every drop of gasoline and oil and water was measured out and poured in by the inspectors themselves. They would not even let our man pour it in! Every four hours the car had to report at the official station for checking, va^-And it had to be there on the minute. And every minute there was an inspector beside the driver on the front scat- two more men in the rear. One got out only to let another in-day and night for 44 days and nights! There was one technical stop. It is interesting to know the circumstances. Dead of night-a driving storm-a cloudburst-suddenly aiiother car appeared ' in the road ahead. In his effort to avoid a collision the Maxwell driver stalled his motor. At least the observers thought it stopped and ao reported. The car did not stop, however, so its momentum again started the motor (if it had indeed stalled) when the clutch was let in. The contest board exonerated our driver on grounds that his action was neces-sary to aave Ufc. That shows you how rigid were the rules-how conscientiously applied by the observers. You who have owned and driven motor cars-you who know how small a thing may clog a carburetor or a feed pipe; "short" a spark or stall a motor-will realize what a wonderfully well made car this must be to go through that test under those conditions-44 days-22,022 miles without stopping. The exact amount of gasoline, of oil, of water used; the tire mileage, tire troubles, tire changes; the distance and the routes are matters of official record, attested under oath and guaranteed by the A. A. A. (By the way, the average was nearly 10,000 miles per tire.) Any Maxwell owner-or anyone interested may see those records. And-here's the most wonderful part-though no attempt was or could be made for economy; the Maxwell averaged 31? nciUea per gallon of gasoline. Some other car may, some time, emial someone of those performances. But to equal them all in the same test- ''
