Owen For Governor
Cotton and wheat are our most valuable
crops; the boll weevil and greenbug their
worst enemies. We have found a preventa
tive for cholera in hogs, blackleg and fever
in cattle. The State should aid in scientific
research to combat the boll weevil and
The country boy and girl should have
educational opportunity equal to the boy
and girl of the city. The State should aid
the rural districts to provide for a seven
months term of school, a suitable building
properly equipped, a competent teacher
properly paid. The adoption of school
books should be taken out of politics.

STUDEBAKER builds more
six-cylinder cars than any
other manufacturer because
Studebaker builds them better.
We can show you 84 definite
points of superiority in the
Special -Six over Studebaker's
In times of close competition,
merit wins. Today competition
in automobiles is keener than it
ever was, because people are
buying more carefully than ever.
Studebaker increased its sales
29 in 1 92 1 . though the industry,
as a whole, showed a falling off of
nearly 45. 1922, up to May
1st, shows a gain in Studebaker
production of 143 over the
same period of 1921.
Studebaker sales records tell their
own story. The buying publip
has declared forStudebakersupe-riority.
