In “The New Teacher” Miss Ma

who tires of social life. She yearns
to do something for her poorer fel

Jackie tries it in his lutest produc

ture produced by Sol Lesser, which
will be seen at the Eltinge theater
Monday and Tuesday, and he con

ing the slippery edible out of the pot
on the stove Jackie finds it impos

lie brings a pair of scissors into play.
Then, when he attempts to trans

he discovers that it cannot be done

Mr. and Mrs. Jack Coogan wrote
the story of “Daddy,” which is a
perfect blend of humor, pathos and

is not merely an accomplishment in production
and distribution. It is an accomplishment in
Many Overlands and Willys-Knights are playing
a tremendous part in the life and happiness of
our own community. They are putting our
families on swift wheels. They are multiplying
the earning power of our men. They are lighten

They are carrying our children to school. They
are promoting business and bringing our people
together in closer, friendlier relationship.
Today’s Overland and Willys-Knight cars
unquestionably are the best automobiles Willys-
Overland ever built —and at the lowest price.
All past achievements are being excelled in
beauty of design, in comfort, in faithful per

Reflecting such quality, sales this season are the
greatest in our history. The public has>registered
unmistakably its appreciation of great value.
