His letter was selected from about 75 submitted by junior high .school students. The letter follows: "The new 1934 model V-8 Ford cars arc the most outstanding in (he low priced car field. The V-8 type eight cylinder motor, with a surplus of [lower, gives the car a . pickup, a getaway, and speed which make it easy to handle in heavy traffic and in city driving. It is very economical in the use of gas, oil and repairs. "The body Is of all steel construction, mnde in one solid piece, which makes it safer in case of wrecks and collision. The car is equipped with shatterproof glass, which adds lo ils safety. It. is liuilt close, (o the ground, (hns making it liolfl the road at high speed. "The new 1934 models are uuilt of the latest streamline construction, which makes II a most "beautiful car. "In n recent stock car contest in California the first eight winners were Fords, which is further evidence of Ford supremacy." RECOGNIZED AT LAST ical opening through u-Jilcli stale ( air is drawn.
