Carefully, and tenderly he lifted
her down and carried her through

she half opened, her blue eyes and

AUTOMOBILES TO BURN
As you dodge the automobiles
in the streets you wonder how so
many people can afford to have
them. You are still further amaz

of sales places that appear to do
a thriving business in supplying
more of them, and when you read
of the great factories that are
turning them out day and night.
"Isn't there any bottom to the
demand?" you ask, "Wont they

and towns lS.POO.'OOO families, of
whom 4,208,000 has incomes in

There are in use today 415,000
cars, leaving the comfortable
margin of 3,753,000 town famil

produce new cars at the rate of
250,000 a year, there's an eighteen"
year job in sight or our factories.
That isn't all not by a jugful.
We're exporting 15,000 cars a
year, we've got a lot of bache
lor men and girls not listed as
"families" and there's a weary
world of, 'possibilities in the line
of commercial motor vehicles.
Then think how fast they wear,
