It is said that German colonies

from Brazil should be interesting.
Would it not be a cood idea, at

arbitration, work continuing mean

Every strike in the United

The test waa made In an Overland

3,000 pounds. The car was allowed to
coast carefully from the top of the
hill and the brakes were not applied

speedometer showed fifteen miles an

to the unfamiliar driver Is that the
curve starts gently ana regularly

adjust their speed to take this curve.

gentle curve compounds with one of
