Intervention in Mexico Would Cost $2,000,000 a Day!
Also, Loss of Thousands of Americans In Battle and By Typhus Fever.
An artnv of 600,000 men; a cost of $2,000,000 a day;
a total of $450,000,000 the first year; almost certain loss of
260,000 Americans by death or injury in battle and by
typhus fever. That, say our experts on Mexican affairs,
will be the result of any American attempt to intervene in
Mexico—to invade and occupy that country. For invasion
means occupation; the mountains and valleys must be
policed to prevent the descent of brigands from secret

The Whitley Cos.
The Whitley Cos., who recently
leased the third floor of the Miller
building, corner S'ate and Shelby
sts . to care for their fast growing
business ln subdivisions in the West
Highland Park district, announce
the opening of building operations
on their properties.
In an Interview, Monday, Mr. J.
B. Whitley said: "On the Roycrof*
subdivision this week we start the
building of the first group of mod
est homes for Ford workers and
others whose work Is In the north

ing only enduring homes of solid
brick, tile and stucco, we are able
to offer really fine homes at moat
reasonable prices.
"The plans and specifications of
the flrat houses, which may be seen
at our offices, indicate that when
we have accomplished our purpose
of building up the community which
has started in the West Highland
Park district around Livernola and
Purltan-aves., the tone of the neigh
borhood will be given the right note
by the high-class appearance and
construction of our house*.
"Many times subdivisions receive
a severe set-back from the invest

of small and incommodious houses

“The Harry lender’s and Roycroft
subdivisions offer a splendid oppor
tunity for the investor to mak* a
'safe and sane* investment because
of the unusual features connected
with each. The Roycroft subdivision
is being sold as homes are being
built. This feature alone will make
the section desirable for investor-*
and make values increase.
"The Harry Lauder's subdivision,
being sold under a ’money back
guarantee’ gives Investors hereto
fore unheard of protection, and this
plan has since been copied by
other companies. It is only be
eause the Whitley Cos. are making
values ln West Highland Park rise

that we can afford such a guaran
