tersapproximately one for each
county In the United States on Feb
ruary 1, 1921, more than 2,500 were
still maintaining a service for dis
abled men. . First, the Chapter acts
as the man's agent for all claims he
has against the Government.' This
involves helping him fill out the
numerous and detailed applications,
get the Accessary affidavits and pres
ent his claim in the proper manner.
This Is In itself a technical, often a
difficult, Job.' Compensation claims,
Insurance claims, allowance and al
lotment claims, application for medi

triea to aid the doctors in making
correct diagnoses, by getting Infor
mation through the local Chapter,
from the man's family, or from a
former physician, about the history
of his" case. While he is in the hospi
tal these workers are at his service
for all sorts of lifts over the hard
places writing letters for him,
pushing his claims, helping him witn
supplies before his compensation ar
rives, and acting as information desk
and service station generally.
In addition to this, the Red Cross
furnishes certain kinds of recreation,
such as motion pictures, games, mus
ic, ets.' This hospital service alone
costs the national funds of the Red
Cross something over a million dol
lars a year; Three hundred people
are employed In the sixty-one hospi

THAT DEPENDABLE FORD QUALITY
Ford durability began back In 1903 when Henry Ford started ex
perimenting with Vanadium steel a id heat-treating processes. He knew
that a more exact tempering of stee for motor car building must bo
worked out. Vanadium, it was lear led, when added to molten steel,
gives to that steel a greater toughn :sa and adhesiveness. And now
other alloys have been found which are superior to Vanadium. With
the Ford Motor' Company constant progress is the dally companion.
The Ford products Car, Truck, Tr ctor, grow In quality dally. Heat
treating tempers each part ao that It will best withstand the wear or
tear to which It is subjected. Ford chemists and analysts have created
formulas and standard specification i for every Individual part of the
Ford car not only for the steel but for everything from pneumatic
tires to top.
Ford durability Isn't a matter of accident. It la a matter of pains
taking thoroughness in laboratory' and factory. Tbe Ford Is a car of
precision of standardized values. Order your Ford car now. No mat
