Hanch, vice president of the National Automobile Chamber of ICommerce, la an address here. 'American cities are placing the chief burden of traffic on their al(ready over-worked police forces/' 'said Hanoh, "instead of making [studios of transportation neods and planning the routing of traffic and improvements on the basis ot these studies. 'Brnry large city needs • traffic commission to study Us railroad, electrle and motor vehicle facilities and to map out plans of operation on a basis of maximum efficiency and service, "The opening of a few streets In many cities and the economic routing ot commercial vehicle traf. fie will be helpful both to shipper and publle. : •"Speed Is a relative matter, depending upon the time of day, the [Place, and the conditions ot road land weather. What .we need moat lis not the clamping down of an jnrbltrary speed law, but the quick land safe dispatching ot traffic at irates of speed suitable to the conditions. I "We need more parking Instead of moro 'no parking.' Facilities at (cost should be provided for the 'nll-dny parker, and everyone should |be permitted to leave his machine lat a given place long enough to at- :t«nd to reasonable errands. Constructive rather than repressive traffic programs should be every lity'u goal."

To make that sweeping assurance more definite and specific — we promise you in speed, in power, in pliability of power, in swift response, and even more particularly in riding steadiness and comfort, results no four-cylinder car has yet been able to attain. To go still further into details, the new.Maxwcll has speed capacities far beyond any car of its type and class, and in the rare instances in which they may have to be used, will register them with an absence of vibration without precedent in four-cylinder construction. Chrysler-Maxwell engineers have been actuated by^the conviction that in addition'to its inherent and natural economies, the four- cylinder principle possessed possibilities of power and speed capably of being translated into ease and steadiness which have never been fully developed. They set out to overcome what have all too readily been accepted in the past as limitations in the four-cylinder engine and to convert these limitations into positive advantages. No one can doubt that success haa crowfted theitefforts, after even so short an experience as a half hour'* driving demonstration of the car* Judged by the unusual and extraordinary character of its performance, this Maxwell is literally a new and immeasurably better type of four-cylinder motor car. a /of tfce Ro r*reildent and Chairman / ot tfce Boertl Maxwell "Motor Sales Corpormtlon, DatroH M»iw«il-Ou-r*l«r Motor Co. of Cutda.
