The Reethnven nnal- : n r 12 No. 1, showed us a young and joy ful Beethoven. It is distinctly classical tyle and content, and was merry all through its four movements and variations. This sonata gave both artists a chance for much graceful phrasing, and refinement of expres sion. The Caesar Franck Sonata in A major was in many ways the most gratifying of the three. It is decided ly French in type and contains many of the subtleties and impressionistic effects characteristic of the most of the modern writers of this school, of which Franck was a founder. All of the movements had much melody and were constantly interesting as pre sented. The Recitativeo-Fantasia was both unusual and attractive and the big brilliant Allegretto poco mosso, with its constant dialogue between violin and piano, and contrapuntal character is really wonderful, and was one of the finest parts of the entire program. Both Mrs 7-.hr, at,,'. j it.. Wagoner received many floral trib- ico miti neariy appreciation, being frequently recalled in acWnnwleHt,. ment. H. M. R.

There Was a Time, Not So Many Years Ago, When Little Was Said About "Food Values" Gradually, however, scientists began find ing out that many common ills were direct ly traceable to the excessive use of certain "foods" which are deprived of a large por tion of the mineral salts of phosphorus, iron, calcium, etc. food elements abso lutely essential to life. These facts led, some twenty years ago, to the making of GRAPE-NUTS, a food rich in these mineral elements. This splen 5ibTfood, made from whole wheat and bar ley, supplies perfectly the wonderful "food values" of these grains lacking in the or dinary dietary. GRAPE-NUTS is most delicious! Eaten with cream, as it usually is, it is an ideally balanced food and should be served daily, "There's a Reaton" for Grape-Nuts Food prices may soar, but there has been no change in price, quality or size of package of Grape-Nuts. This is also true of Postum, Instant Pos tum and Post Toasties, also made by the manufacturers of Grape-Nuts. HASH TO KEEP UP THEJEFFRY SIX Head of Nash Motors Company Makes Statement of PoHoy. MOST FLEXIBLE OF OASS An official statement has been made by C. W. Nash, president of the Nash Motors company, that a large order has been issued on Jeffery Six and that this car, incorporating certain changes and refinements, will be con tinued throughout the season as the product of the Nash Motors com pany. This is the first official declaration of policy made by C. W. Nash, who has held the center of interest since his acquisition of the big Jeffery plant, last September. Mr. Nash, in outlining his reasons for this decision, slates that since his purchase of the Jeffery plant, he has examined the construction of Jeffery Six in every detail, and put it to every test of machine shop and road. These tests, he says, convinced him that the Jeffery Six was one of the best motor cars made in this country. In reviewing some of the points of JeSery Six construction Mr. Nash says, "I have been in the business of building and selling carriages and motor cars for some twenty-five years. But I can frankly say that I have never known a car that was better constructed than this Jeffery Six. "I have personally inspected this car in every detail. Some of the things which I learned about it surprised me. ror instance, it has more alloy steel in its make-up than most American cars. Alloy steel is a superior ma terial because of its great strength and resistance to wear. But because of its toughness it is difficult to machine. It is also more costly than ordinary carbon steel. ' ' v "Another unusual feature about Jeffery Six construction is the fact that nothing but high grade whita ash is used in the bodies. "After I had satisfied myself on the various point.', of construction I tested this car for performance, driving it over every kind o? road. I found that it was extremely flexible, that the fifty-three horse power motor per mitted a range of speed on "high" from two to sixty miles an hour. "Then I called my engineering staff ( into conference and we went over this car together. We saw where we could make a few slight refinements which would make it a still better car. These improvements have all been made and I am sincere when I say that I think the Jeffery Six is one of the best cars built in this ountry today." sStore Hours: 8:30 A. M. to 6 P. M.
