Bainville, Jan. 18.—The chamber of
commerce has received word that the
highway leading west from the city
will be straightened, thus eliminating
two r i g ht angle turns within the city
limits. Enough land has been pur
chased to lead the road out directly
join the highway about half a mile
The Great Noithern has announced
it will construct a 900-foot dike to

which flows along the tracks and down

the creek in such a way that the flow

After the work is completed, there
will be room for more industrial
tracks which the road plans to put in.
Shotgun creek, although practically
dry in the summer, floods during the
spring and usually puts the east por

That Buick owners are loyal to
Buick principles and Buick design is
convincingly shown, according to C.
W. Churchill, general sales manager
of the Buick Motor Company, in fig
ures just compiled which reveal that
between 45 per cent and 60 per cent
of all Buicks sold are purchased by
former Buick owners.
"This loyalty, displayed year after
year by so many thousand of former
Buick owners throughout the nation,
naturally is very gratifying to Buick
officials," Churchill declared. "It;
proV e s to us that our efforts, not only
to maintain but even surpass our sue
cesS es of the past, are appreciated by
those who keep faith with Buick. i
"The enormous repeat busmess of

requirements of a manufacturer in
meeting the varied needs in models I
of today-the huge volume necessary
to produce the many types of cars

The design and construction of the
valves are among the most important
elements of modem automobile engi

The designers of the new Model A
Ford gave special attention to these
factors and the result of their design

The valves in the Model A Ford are
made of carbon chrome nickel alloy.

the desired size. The stems have
mushroom ends to give larger wear

they come into contact with the push
rods. The carbon chrome nickel alloy

ticularly resistant to wear and to the
scaling effects of the hot gases which
the valves must endure in their nor

Shipments to foreign countries dur

compared with 27,592 during 1927 or
an increase of 9,106 units or 31 per

increase in percentage but the average
was well over 25 cent.

President Willys said that prepara
tiens are being made for increasing
export business during the new year
by forty per cent over the record
breaking shipments of 1928. The corn
pany has greatly increased its dealer
organization abroad in addition to de
velopment of manufacturing plants in
Canada, Great Britain and Germany.
Countries which showed the largest
increases during the year incldue, Ar

Spain, Australia, Java, Sweden, South
Africa, New Zealand and England.
The big season of automobile buy
ing is just beginning in Argentina,
Australia and New Zealand and the
company's dealers in these countries
are ordering larger quantities than ev

dence that from 35 to 40 per cent more
cars will be sold in these countries
during the next six months than in
the corresponding period of 1928.
First complete figures of "foriegn

This compares with an export in
