best method.
This three-burner and oven range co oks and bakes as fast as a~gas range. It
? is built compact, with glass oven door, drip pan under burners, large roomy
? cooking top and high shelf. An additional advantage is the high base which
permits easy sweeping under the stove.

Announcing a New
Reo Model
bearing the

models have

name REO as something substantially standard
novel. In the long history of this company REO
been to build, not something dif ferent, but something better. The
splendid reputation of the REO product enjoys is largely the re

kept pace, we believe you will find this a better REO. You will
find in this new model those features ardently desired by many
REO distributors and a large percentage of the select REO clein

We maintain, however, that beyond a certain point, lightness is

ears are light to the point of fli msiness. REO designed, the di
mensions of'this new SIX guarantee that surplus power you have
learned to expect in a REO.
Clean-cut in design, rugged in construction, it possesses at the
same time great flexibility and great "lugging" power. Outward
ly it is entirely different?but close examination will disclose a
pleasing rearrangement of those distinctly REO features with
out which you would not expect to find that performance, that
durability and economy that are REO attributes. Body design is
New bodies are not unusual. This new REO -SIX' will strike you
as singularly beautiful and in excellent taste. A demonstration of
this car will give you an idea of the only real surprise th'e'REO
engineers have prepared for you in this new REO SIX.
