The regular monthly meeting of

agency is found in the social service
workers; that it differs from medical
inspection of schools in two points,
viz: that medical inspection of school
children has never been successful in
rural communities, and 70 per cent of
the population is rural. Medical in
spection of school children begins
with school life where the six most
important years precede school life.
It is the trend of affairs for this
service to be handled by a board of
education rather than a board of
health. Four counties in Florida are
taking up this work Broward, Palm

movement in progress to carry this

question is being asked. "What form

While our people have not moved
into war with the machine-like regu regularity
larity regularity of Germany, while they are
having to be educated to their respon-
sibilities, they are learning fast, and
the inevitable result will be that they
will decide that those who are not
with them are against them, and that
those who are with them must prove
their faith by their works.
A number of Liberty Loan commit committees
tees committees all oyer the country ,have decid decided

their communities who buy Liberty
Bonds, and how much they buy, and
it is likely that after a reasonable
time has elapsed they will publish the

.This policy. may also be followed by
the Red Cross. There is a strong sen sentiment
timent sentiment in Ocala in favor of both, and
it is very likely the sentiment will
take concrete shape in the next week
or two. '-.
At first view, both these moves
will' seem to receive some impetus
from intolerance. As we all know,
there are many worthy, patriotic and
self-sacrificing ; Americans who can't
buy bonds, and can give but little
help to the Red Cross, because they
have the suffering of their own to look
after. But all such people are gener generally
ally generally too well known, to Jheir friends
to be thought of unjustly for such a
reason. .::'.- ,:.
On the other hand there are many
whoare able to largely buy bonds and
strongly help the Red Cross, but who
on the strength of the purchase of a
$50 bond or the donation of a single
dollar will mount buttons and parade
as patriots as much generally far
more than those who deny them
selves and give till it hurts.
All the people of America must en enlist

fight must work or pay. Those who
can't pay themselves can help those
who can and will. No slacker has a
right to crouch in ease and safety be

There are two fine expressions in
Lieut. Leslie Anderson's letter from
France, published in Saturday's Star,
that we can't help commenting on.
They are as follows:
."I really wouldn't feel comfortable.
if I were again in citizens clothes over
there, knowing as I do now just what
is going on over here. It's great to
be a part of it and (it's worth all the
sacrifices you must bear and the
dangers you must encounter."
"I should love to see the folks again
and one or two other people as well,
but I'd rather see this game through
than anything else at present.. It is
an experience which will be invalua invaluable
ble invaluable to me if I live to apply what
I learn here, and if I don't well bet better
ter better men than I have gone ahead, so it
does not seem so bad.'
; In another place he comments bn
something that has several times oc occurred
curred occurred to us. He says:
"Received the communique from you
on conditions in M a day or two ago.
The news from that town seems to
consist chiefly of accounts of Red
Cross work and about how many com compresses
presses compresses have been made by the La Ladies'
dies' Ladies' Aid.. Sounds fine, you know, to
have people tell; you that so many
hundred compresses have been made
for the soldiers. I have heard about
that so much than I can almost feel
one on me now."
vVe wouldn't for anything in the
world discourage such an useful
work, but sometimes we have thought,
when reading proof on some list of
bandages and compresses made by
the skilled and loving fingers of the
women at home, that the boys in the
camps who would read about them
wouldn't be able to help feeling like
the homef oiks expected them all to
be shot up. Now, since a soldier at
the front has very delicately express expressed

and patriotism without so fully sug suggesting

Any maker may claim for his product all the qualities there are. That is his
privilege. He may even think his claims are justified.
You read the advertisements, so you know that makers, as a rule, are not over
modest in that regard.
If you believe them all, they all make super-cars.
In your experience, tha-theory doesn't-hold.
Maxwell is different.
Ve never claim anything we cannot prove.
As a matter of fact we never have claimed anything for this Maxwell that has
not already been proved' in public test and under official observation.
Maxwell claims are not therefore claims in the ordinary sense -they are state statements
ments statements of fact proven facts.
They are, in every case, matters of official record attested under oath.
For example: The famous 22,000-mile Non-Stop run was made with the
Maxwell every minute under observation of the A. A. A. officials.
That still remains a world's record the world's recdrd of reliability.
That particular test proved about all that anyone could ask or desire of a motor
car, ., .' ' : '
Among other things it still stands, the world's long distance speed record. r
Just consider 44 days and nights without a stop, at an average speed of 25
miles per hour!
And that, not by a $2,000 car, but by a stock model Maxwell listing at $825.-
You will recaU perhaps that a famous high powered, high priced six in a trans transcontinental
continental transcontinental trip made 28 miles average over a period of five days and eleven
hours. ,-.. .'.
Now compare those two feats one of less than six. days, the other of 44 days.
You' knbw automobiles which was the greater test?
Is there any comparison on grounds either of speedor endurance?
Proves you don't need to pay more than $825 to obtain all the qualities you
can desire in a motor car if you select a-Maxwell.
For that Maxwell Non-Stop run was made, not on a track but over rough
country roads and through city traffic average of all kinds of going.
And listen to this.
So certain were we of the condition of the Maxwell at the end of that great
feat, we announced that at the stroke of eleven on a certain morning, the car
would stop in front of the City Hall, Los Angeles, for the Mayor to break the
seal. ; y 1 :
Five seconds after he had pulled the switch plug andstopped the motor after the
44 days and nights continuous running, she was started again and off on a
thousand mile jaunt to visit various Maxwell dealers.
How is that for precision certainty, of action? That incident brought a storm
of applause from the assembled thousands.
Hill climbing? this Maxwell holds practically every record worth mentioning
especially in the West Where the real hills are.
The Mount Wilson record nine and one-half miles, 6,000 feet elevation I was
taken by a stock Maxwell;
Two months ago a 12-cylinder car beat that record by two minutes.
Then three days later a, stock Maxwell went out and beat that 12-cylinder
record by thirty seconds! -Pretty close going for such a distance and such a
climb wasn't it?
So Maxwell still holds the Mount Wilson honors.,
Ready to defend it against all comers too, at any time a stock Maxwell against
any stock or special chassis.
Economy also a matter of official record.
Others may claim Maxwell proves.
Thousands of Maxwell owners throughout the United States on the same day
averaged 29.4 miles per gallon of gasoline.
Not dealers or factory experts, mind you, but owners thousands of them
driving thir own Maxwells.
Nor were they new Maxwells the contest was made by 1915, 16, and 17 models,
many of which had seen tens of thousands miles of service three years' use.
Nor could they4 choose their own road or weather conditions all kinds were
encountered in the various sections of the country.
Good roads and bad level country and mountainous, regions--heat and cold
sunshine and rain asphalt and mud.
And the average, was 29.4 miles per gallon!
There's economy for you. And under actual average driving conditions not
But that isn't all. y 1 v
The greatest achievement of this Maxwell was in its showing of speed and relia reliability
bility reliability and economy all in the same run.
In that44 days-and-nights Non-Stop run, though no thought was given to
either speed or economy, it still remains a fact of official record that the Maxwell
averaged 22 miles per gallon and 25 miles per hour.
Now you know that speed costs and that economy tests are usually made at
slow-speed closed-throttle, thin-mixture conditions.
You know too that you can obtain economy of fuel by building and adjusting
for that one condition.
Speed you can get by building for speed. Any. engineer can do that.
But to obtain, that combination of speed and economy with the wonderful
reliability shown in that 44-days Non-Stop run that car must be a Maxwell.
