TECHNICAL OBSERVER  LAUDS MAXWELL TRUCK  That the Maxwell truck has established a record for endurance and  'economy is the opinion of James J.  Hemstreet, technical observer and  director of touring A. A. A. of New  York.  '"Attaining a showing for durability,  mechanical worth, correct weight dis  tribution and economical running  operation that has no parallel ,in the  records of the American Automobile  Association, and has no equal, in my  opinion, in all the history of motor  production in this country," said Hem-  street, "a Maxwell one-ton truck which  left New York December 1 for a demonstration "of its workabilities under  the strictly business requirements of  the American Automobile Association's -sanction 1080, completed its  drive at Forty-second Street and Fifth  Avenue, New York, January 3, with a  record that should mean greater enthusiasm, greater sales and more prestige for Maxwell dealers and distributors everywhere.  "Having ridden with this truck  throughout ils test run, which extended over 2,488 miles from New York  City to Jacksonville, and return, and  having previously—during fourteen  years of association with motor car  tests and contests—traveled by motor  over practically all of this country,  England and France,-I subscribe to,the  statement that this Maxwell truck has  outperformed and outdemon'strated  anything in the form of a motor product that I have ever had any personal  contact .with."  The Consolidated Motor Co., 1230  Georgia Street, handle the Maxwell  locally.  Automobile history has been made  so fast-and the advancement has been  so rapid that the trials of the beginners and the reception of the motor  car by the people, in the early stages  of the industry, are interesting things property."  to dwell upon.  It is only a few years ago that the  federal commissioners at Washington  refused the application of a local firm  who wished to run a motor delivery  wagon on the streets of the capital .on  the   ground   that   "it  would   frighten  horses, and   thus'1 endanger   life   and  DAVIE VULCANIZING COMPANY  Auto and Tire Repairs  Ship that toursted tire to us: we can repair it, and you car; get hundreds  of more miles, for a small  expense.'
