1930 Buick Has New Body Lines
The 1910 Bulck make* it* debut
•hi* week on the showroom floor* of
arPt'oxi,T'3t^lv 4,000 dealer* through
out the country and, according to
factory officials at Flint, Michigan,
this new creation will prove one of
the outstanding sensations of the
year in both performance ami
The Buick line, a* in former year*,
I* divided into three series. The
wheelbase and the horsepower of all
model* of the three scries have been
increased. The wheelbase of the si*
model* of (he 40 series ha* been
increased from 116 to 118 inches and
the engine h:;* been stepped op to
801 [> horsepower.
Wheelbase on the two model* in
the series Si.' line i* increased from
121 inches to 124 inches and on the
rt* model* of 60 series from 129
inches to 1 '2 inches. Models in the
10 and 60 series have an engine
v.lvch wid develop 99 horsepo.wer.
Ail models in all series have an actual
speed well up in the seventies.
In addit'on to lengthening the
wheelbase, the car has been built
losver. Bcdv lines and contours have
been refined, the shape of the radl
itor revises!, the margin of the radi
ator shell diminished and thermo
statically operated shutters added to
the front. The result is a ear of
unusual hrautv, fleet lines and
obvious comfort. The body bears the
stamp of Fisher craftsmanship.
Many mechanical advances have
been embodied in the IV fO Hoick.
A steering w heel road-shock elimi
nating device is one of them and this
feature, coupled ss ith a fully adjust
able worm and roller type steering
assembly, makes the new car singu
larly easy to steer and handle at high
speeds on the open road and in slow
moving heavy traffic.
Semi-elliptic springs and double
acting shock absorbers are used,
together with four wheel internal
expansion controlled bervo brakes,
redesigned Itansmission and clutch,
improved rubber mo'or mountings
and a wider and sturdier chassis
frame. A sloping non-glare wind
shield Is another advancement incor
porated in the r.ew Buick.
Performance tests, conducted over
a period of several months at the
General Motors Proving Ground,
have demonstrated that its speed, hill
climbing ability and riding comfort
set a new all-around precedent in the
field of automobile travel.
Drying Up Springs
Of Local Business
Manufacturers Record
Short-sighted to the extreme are
manv of the great corporation?, in
cluding the chain store organiza
tions. which require that mon*v
coll'X'trd throughout tlie country,
instead of being left on deposit in
local banks to furnish a tasks of
credit for loral bus.ness, be rushed
to New York, sometimes by wire
and at other times by air mail or
fast express, in order that, it may
be utilized in supporting the stock
operations of Wall street specula
tors. The head of th~ corporations
responsible for this action do not
seem to comprehend that through
this system they are destroying the
prosperity of the very commumtie
on which their own prosperity de
Even chain stores in a city a;
large as Baltimore are being re
quired to send their money prompt
ly to New York. In some ol the
smaller places throughout the
country, the banks in which local
money has been deposited are re
quested to wile the money to the
New Yo:k office of these ehntn
store- A banker recently told the
editor of the Manufacturers Rec
ord that, one of the big insurant--'
companies of New York last year
•pent $25,000 for the purpose of
having money, rollcctrd at its vari
ous branch offices throughout the
country, wired to New York.
Are the people responsible for
this condition so short-sighted, so
narrow-visioned and so thoughtless
of general prosperity upon which
their prosperity must inevitably de
pend in the end. they cannot see
that in this way they are drying
up the springs which should irrigate
imd fertilize the prosperity of the
local communities in which th! ->
money is paid to the insurance
agencies, to the chain stores and to
other interests? This condition T»
as bad as to expect a cow to fur
nish an abundant supply of milk
even when all food has been taken
from her, leaving her no suste
nance from which to create mite.
The situation is so lamentable and
of such extreme importance to the
country that, unless some plan Is
found to overcome this difficulty,
and entirely new, banking system
may have to be devised by which
money will remain dispersed
throughout the country and not be
concentrated in the vast centers of
wealth. The enormous business of
the insurance companies, of the
chain stores and all kindred or
ganizations, absorbing a very large
proportion of the entire money of
the country, may in the end prove
disastrous to national prosperity
unless the men at the head of the.e
organizations are wise enough to]
alter their poliry of drawing money
away from the country Into t' c
great maw of Wall street's absorbing
power lor the temporary gain o'
lending on;.call at. exorbitant rates
of interest
If the Federal Reserve lxiard can
not meet this situation, then some
new financial system must tie d"- ]
