The importance of the automobile in the present war can hardly be overestimated. At the beginning of the war,a fleet of Parisian taxicabs enabled General Joffre to get his troops mobilized at the proper point with incredible speed. Again and again the motor car has saved the day,but here in the armore machine gun car,we see the automobile in all its glory of war. Note its sturdy construction,solid wheels,steel shield for the man who operates the machine gun,and the small,carefully shielded apertures through which the driver can watch the road and still be comparatively safe from hostile sharpshooters
