[WHY NOT YOU?
Work, PlMsur* and Automobllu
The aim of life should be work
and pleasure. I say work and
pleasure to make myself under
stood, but I mean all pleasure.
Everything pleasant and enjoy
able. Work of any nature should
be a pleasure, the more work the
more pleasure is properly mixed.
The more one can accomplish the
greater the satisfaction. The
idle person is not a satisfied be=
ing. To plow a day or two for a
change is really an enjoyment,
but to keep this thing up day af
ter day and week after week
without a break becomes a
drudgery and one is apt to be
come a slave to the work or real
ly a slave to one's self It is
enjoyment and work together
that drives away drudgery.
In choosing a means of enjoy
ment, is there anything on earth
that your mind can conceive of
that will give you more pleasure
than would an automobile? Is
there anything that you can in
vest your money in that will give
you more lasting satisfaction?
The automobile will be the cause
of the greatest advancement the
world has ever known it will be
the means of bringing country
and city closer together. We
will all bcome better acquainted.
If it is true that an automobile
is your only wish, then why de
ny yourself this enjoyment if you
can arrange means to purchase
one?
