SPRUCIX; UP THE FLIVVER How abcu* your motor car? 01* course you R her lose class some what duringthe war. It was unpat riotic to use labor or paint on y?ur , car at a timewhen American industry wa* working at top speed to produce the material necessary for the win-' ning of the ;var. ) But the var is over. Labor is n?> J longer scape. In fact there are lO.OOt! soldi irs being dismissed every 1 day from :he service, and thesej men will hive rather a difficult time of it until the industries of the country- car reinstate them into civi lian jobs, Now is the time to spruce up that motor car, to put that neces- j sary coat 01 paint on and to overhaul : it generally. You will be doing a pat- j riotic service to the country in gotting j a soldier or two to do this work for j yen. Colonel Arthur Woods, Assistant! to the Secretary of War, recommends the employment of ex-service men for such reconstruction work. There is no more need for emer-1 gency economy. Minor repairs add to j the life of things. Paint adds life to rhr> body of the car. Spruce up your engine. Renew those worn parts. Your car will go qiucker, will run smooth er and wear on it will be lighter: " Material^\krfc expensive . now? paints, machine parts, cost more than they used to a few years ago. But they will save more than their value in tfheir service to the car. Dcr.'t wait for materials to come down. They Won't. Rather is the con trary to be expected. And if you wait a little too long, you will have to put, on an extra coat 'of paint, and more parts will wear out. "Spruce up" your car now. launch great tanker Steamer I'atcka, With Capacity of .">,000,000 Gallons, Takes to Water at Newpor News Newport' News. Va., July 29.?

' \ NARROW VIEWS ON SABBATH Philadelphia Preacher Advocates j Personal Liberty in Observ ance of Day Philadelphia, July 29.?Criticism of those persons who try to force their own idea of Sabbath observ ance on others, was made Sunday by Rev. Dr. George F. Pentecost, in a sermon delivered at the Beth any Presbyterian Church, Twenty second and Bairibridge streets where he is pastor. "It is not right," said Dr. Pente cost," that the minority of people in a communitly or in a country should force their views on the ma jority. Christians, who make up from one third to less than half of the population of this country, have no right to say how the rest of the people should spend their Sabbath."
