TAKE good care
OF VOI R CAR
Whether you are the discrimina
ting type who feels real pride in
'keeping your car "Spick and Span"
just as you'd want to keep your
garden, or if you don't get around
t" washing and polishing your car
just as often as you should, there
one thing sure and that is that
all motorists should feel the respon
sibility and be keenly aware of the
necessity of keeping it in perfect
running condition.
When one considers the many
tragedies that have been brought
about by carelessness of the motor
ist in not thoroughly checking be
neath the exterior to be sure that
all working parts are in good con
dition, it is all too obvious that in
keeping our cars properly serviced
we are not only getting maximum
return from car or truck investment,
but we are doing our part in the
safety of our selves and our fel
lows.— L. J. BROWN, Clack's Sta
tion.
