Famous Artist Comments
on Beauty Lines of Hudson
A man, who WAS author and artist
combined, wrote a story. It is ap
pearing in a prominent publication. In
drawing an illustration for his story
he wanted to introduce a really high
grade, high-class motor car. The ar
tist was George Gihbs. I. W. 13111. I
local distributor of the Hudson car, I
t®ld this yesterday to a caller.
"An artist." said Mr. Dill, "hales*
anything that is ungraceful, or In-,
artistic. So Mr. Glbbs evidently was \
hard to please in selecting the motor !
car that should servo as his model.
Finally he found a car that just suited
his ideas of beauty of design and .
gracefulness in line. And the picture I
the hero and the heroine beside |
a new Hudson Six 10. Doubtless many |
have seen the illustration and rec
ognized the handsome lines of the
Hudson Six.
"The new stream line design offers :
least resistance to wind and air. Tt '
has no angles and recesses where dust j
and oil can gather. Its gently curving :
lines carry the arch principle of con- ]
struction into the motor car body. ]
All this appealed to the Hudson de- I
signers when they built the new car. j
And to have so eminent an artist as'
Mr. George Gtbbs endorse their jndg- |
ment by his portrayal of the Hudson j
in an important illustration is in- ,
tensely gratifying. '

>First National Show Under One
Roof at Grand Central
When the gigantic automobile show
j opens this evening in N'ew York city.
I it will not be historic Madison Square
• Carden in the spot light this year, but
j Grand Central Palace will have the
; entire show under one roof for the
I first time, as ihe two automobile
I manufacturing divisions are now
I united in(o one trade organization.
I The Interior of the Grand Central
jPalace will be magnificent in appear
; anee, but there will be less profusion.
> more simplicity and more richness in
I the general scheme than have ever be-
I lore been seen. In point of beauty,
j area of floor space, convenience and
i safety the present home of the na
'tlonal show will shatter all precedent.
Although located on three levels the
! Palace exhibition hall, architecturally,
has the aspect of a spacious amphi
| theater. Near the center a large court
Irises to a height of forty feet through
j the second and third levels. The balu
| strade surrounding the court on the
i second floor, together with the mss-
I sive columns that rise to the third
level, gh os the effect of a mezzanine
i floor gallery.
i The New York show is really a na
tional manufacturers exposition where
I practically every motor car and now
[accessory |g shown, while many of the
(other shows in large cities are dealer's
| displays of the various models repre
sented in their respective territories.
Most of all th» local automobile
i dealers have signified their intentions
i of being present one or more days, and
.many other Harrisburg motor car
(owners and prospective buyers will no
!doubt avail themselves of this oppor- (
: tunity to see the world's newest cre
jatiors in motor vehicles.

situation had been decided upon.
The, President referred to the con
ference as a "get together talk." ll>

stantly had been sending full dis
patches, a conversation of a few hours
has been deemed worth more than
weeks of telegraphic communication,

had been no special occasion of Mr.
Kind's visit—no advices, excitement or
new questions.
When asked if ho was more hope

personal view of the situation had not
changed, fie smiled when told of the
reports I hat Provisional President
Huerta or some high official of the
Huerta government was on hoard the
Chester, and said:
"Well, 1 didn't see them if they
were there."
General Bliss Tells
of Disarming Mexicans
By Associated Press
Washington, D. C„ Jan. 3.—Further
official explanation of the action of
the Texas border patrol in disarming
Mexicans and forcing them across the
Rio Grande was received to-day from
Brigadier General Bliss. He reported
that any other course would result in
the big Bend country being overrun
with small armed parties and empha
sized that all armed bands who cross
the border, except those seeking asy
lum, are "armed invaders of United
States territory."
Mother Not Permitted
to See Son on Cruiser
Pass Christian, Miss., Jan. 3.—The
President this morning took Mr. hind's
two sons. Normal Lind and John Lind,
Jr., eight miles in his automobile to
Ihe fiier. They hoarded the revenue
cutter Winona and went to the cruiser
Chester to bid their father good-by.
The Chester was scheduled to sail
for Vera Cruz before noon.
A touch of pathos was added to
the exchange of farewells between Air.
Lind and his sons, when Mrs. Pauline
Mezzisen, of Bay St. Louis, sought to
see her son George, a yeoman in the
nnvy aboard the cruiser Chester. Mrs.
•Mezzisen. when she learned that none
of the ship's crew was to come ashore,
went on board a tug which followed
j the Winona to the place where the
scout cruiser was anchored. The tug,
! however, was warned away by the
! Chester's officers and the little gra v
! hatred woman was forced to call her
i good-by to her son across the inter
-1 vening water.
President Wilson later in tlie morn
ing went to the golf course, where he
played eighteen holes. While there he
was told of Mrs. Mezzisen's efforts to
see her boy and apparently was deeply
touched by the incident, lie asked the
secret service men to investigate and
it was understood that be would write
to her explaining the exigency of the
occasion and expressing regret that
she could not go aboard the cruis.er.
President Wilson also took cogni
zance of the isolation of the Chester's

men to secure all the newspapers they
could find and put them on board the

on Monday for a week's celebration of
their thirteenth anniversar\ as theatri

years ago that these young men. then
very young, indeed, to enter upon such
a venture, leased an assembly hall In

grown steadily until they now control
twenty- three theaters in nearly a

\Vhile the first season required some
thing of an effort to make tile newer
entertainment popular, it wasn't long

A little over a year ago Wiltner and

ror them a new theater on the site of
the Uochiel Hotel, at Market and Third
streets—probably one of the most
■ valuable corners in town. The theater
, was built, and contrary to the expecta
tions of many doubting citizens, it Is a
big success. Uefore that theater was
more than.seven months old Wilmer and
