' ArNT NATURE "WONDERFUL!
f The Flivver
Well, Pete, put down that pickle
sandwich and give a listen. We've
got one of the greatest Industries of
the age to squawk about on today's
menu and that are the flivver.
I thought you gave a sermon about
the Jumping bean the other day, Ed
k Have a care, Thor, don't knock
' Flivvers; its cylinders do' enough of
that stuff. A cat nas only nine lives
but a fliwer dies so much Euclid
himself, the Ty Cobb of arithmetic;
couldn't keep track of its lives. An
ordinary automobile is only good for
riding around in, but there s no limit
to the things a fliwer can do.
Flivvers make dainty watch
charms They can be used as alarm
clocks or as pacifiers for babies.
Even when a fliwer is played out,
if any member of the family live that

left over to make a good vacuum
Some people are such brutes with
their fliwera they load them down
with all kinds of brightly polished a&

like automobiles. It's a wonderJhe
humane society doesn't get after

He can wave it. He can wrap it
around his ear. He can chase flies
up and down his back with it. And
if he happens to be traveling in a
stock car he can send it out for air.
Think what a man toul'd do with
' a nose like that When his wife
p smelled smoke he could sit where he
was and sniff in the other rooms. And
i when it came to Dutch lunches he
f could hang his nose out of the win
' dow and enjoy his limburger in
Oh, for a wamdering nose!
