First oj all—she looks serene . . . . . . for she knows she is driving the world's most distinguished motor car—a car so regal in its bearing and so sumptuous in its appointments that it is the accepted standard for the whole automotive world. She looks confident, too . . . . . . for she knows she is driving a mechanical masterpiece—a car that is as dependable and safe as human ingenuity and craftsmanship can make it. She looks rested and at ease . . . . . . for there is no strain at all to her driving. The big motor moves the car as if by automatic propulsion — steering is virtually a response to her wish — and the brake pedal calls for little more than the weight of a foot. y finally > she looks — as we said— so lovely . . . . . . for here is the perfect background for a lady. If she has chosen the model and the color and upholstery with care—as the fullest complement to her personality—she is the spotlighted high-light in a gorgeoxt's picture! * * •* This message, of course, is addressed to a man—to a man with a lovely lady whom he delights to see at her best—and whom he wants surrounded, wherever she drives, with every safeguard an automobile can provide. Come in, Sir—and see us. You are looking, as you surely know, for a. Cadillac! Lapiner Motor Co., Inc. 125 South Delaware Ave. Phone 1182
