i BUICK CARS HAVE
I MADE FLINT, MICH.
In 1 905 When First Buick Factory
' Was Built Population Was
1500; Now 100,000.
' Back in the earlier days when
Flint was n village of 1,500 with an
area of sixty acres, it was merely an
Indian Trading point, and the innnbi-
- iants those dnys "trapped" swapped
horses, and bargained with the big
t chiefs and their squaws.
' In 1905 when the Buick factory
built its first buildings here, Flint
grew rapidly to whnt was considered
i n wonderful population of some
' 12,000. During the next five years
j Buick business expanded to such a
degree, that when the census of 1910
' Iran recorded it showed a population
Under the new census returns Flint
Advances from the sixth city in Mich
, igan with a population of (8,550 in
i 1910 to third place with a population
I, of 91,599.
Added to these figures during the
i past few days are the recent nnnex-
' ations to this city which will givu
Flint n present population exceeding
X 100,000 or nearly 145 percent incrense.
!Such a rcmnrknblo growth so far,
is one of the highest records of the
1920 U. S. Census returns. It has
been largely brought about through
i4 the location and expansion of the
! mammoth Buick Motor Car plant, in
which institution nearly 20,000 pcr
,' sons are daily employed, thereby giy-
t ing n livlihood to more than 70,000
of Flint's population.
Thcro nre few cities in America
that cnjpys the distinction of hnving
i such n world wide reputation, for up-
on both hemispheres it has become
I; known as the home of the famous
j Valve-in-Hcad Buick Car.
j From n sixty-acre garden spot to
J tho vast area of over 19,000 acres,
i illustrates Flint's wonderful growth
' and size.
I Detroit is the first city of tho state,
; Grand Rapids second, with Flint a
j close competitor. Just how long this
one timo little Indian village will re-
mam in third position, has the popula
j tion of its state guessing, for the
" ' millions of dollars now being spent by
the Buick factory in new additional
4.- buildings and factory plants, mentis
still further additions to Flint in in
creased population. Future months
y might possibly find Flint again
changing its standing in advancing
to the position of the big sister of
Miss Dynamic Detroit.

If Owner Expects Enjoyment and

Take Care of It.

Lucky With Car Is One Who
Looks After Details.
If you vnnt to got enjoyment nnd
comfort out of your cnr you must lake

Therefore yon must:
Not nice the engine unnecessarily.
Have your ear tuned for every un
lisual noise. - If It Is a squeak locato
and luhrlcato the jmrt. If It Is some
other nolso llnd tho loose part that
causes It and tighten It right away.
Do not tinker ahout tho' engine
when It Isn't necessary. Half tho

pair Is the ability to discover Its ne
cessity. Motorl6t Who Seems "Lucky."
Have you ever noticed the motorist
who seems "lucky" with his car, who
never seems to have a hit of trouble,
who keeps It neat, anil whose engine al
ways starts Immediately tho self-starter
Is pressed; who doesn't have nny
breakdowns while on the road, nor
curse the manufacturer for building
Inspect Your Engine Systematically
Once a Week You Will Save
such a car? It Isn't luck at all. With
till adjustments properly taken care
of, every bearing and working part
lubricated, tho whole car will run per
fectly and will continue to run with
only a wee bit of attention.
In neglecting details you save time
and Inconvenience to bo sure but
eventually you will find a bad break
and what time you have saved will be
wasted In expensive repairs.
Never drive your car at high speed
over any road, much less a rough or a
slippery one. The slight gain In time
will bo ofTset by the risk of an acci
dent and the pounding and racking
which the car will receive.
It has been proven that thc owner
who drives his car at average speeds
of from twenty-live to thirty-live miles
an hour over all sorts of roads pays
much more per mile for gasoline, oil
and tires than the driver who watches
constantly for rough places and avoids
them and who drives at a rate of
eighteen to twenty miles per hour. A
car which Is driven at a high rate of
speed Is usually In the repair shop
often, which adds much more, to the
cost per mile of operation.
It Is not how mnny miles are cov
ered In n certain time, but the number
of miles of useful travel that can he
obtained at the least cost for fuel, oil,
tires and repairs. Popular Sclenco
