I take this method of congratulating

Owners Are Better Guides than Specifications
Public appreciation is the most potent factor influencing the demand for Overland cars
today. The confidence buyers have when ordering new Overland cars is the result of
the esteem of 600,000 owners. This condition has its source in our original policy of
placing owner-respect above all other considerations. This policy, to which we have
adhered for ten years, has buiJt the vast Willys - Overland factories occupying more
than 120 acres. While our factories were giving precedent to war work we were en
abled to devote painstaking, deliberate study and planning to the cars we now are
marketing. We are in an even better position today to merit that public appreciation,
on which prestige of Overland and Willys-Knight cars is built.

"A Bit More."
Near a great city school is a shop
known to the children who patronize
It as the "Bit More Shop." The pro
prietor caters to the boys and girls in
little things the children like, and he
always, gives good measure an extra
apple or a "bit more" of candy. There
are three classes of people; those who
don't do their duty, those who do their
duty and those who do their duty and
something more. Christian Herald.
Imitation Elks' Teeth.
Imitation elks' teeth in large quanti
ties recently have made their appear
ance in the local market to the alarm
of jewelers who deal in the genuine
article. Some of the bogus teeth are
easily detected. Others made of bone
or walrus tusks are fair imitations of
the genuine. A sure test, the jewelers
say, is to immerse the teeth in muriatic
acid. The acid will bleach and rough
en the better imitations and almost dis
integrate the poorer ones.
