MAKMW Associated Press News Analyst \VASHINGTOX .•? - Adlaj Stevenson has much to look forward to if the political polls are as wrong as they wore in IB-IS when a i they predicted Thomas E. Dewey would be a winner but. former President Truman beat him. The polls being taken now mostly indicate President Eisenhower dressing them up. He does It 80 much that he sacrifices some play in the newspapers by giving reporters copies of -his speeches very late. He says too that he doesn't want to say anything which might in any way detract from the high office he soeks. As a result he tones down the speeches prepared for him and those he writes himself until he drains away much of the fire they might have had.

Before you buy your next truck, look at both sides of Ford's story of value: what you get and what it costs. You'll like what you see. Look at the costs. Ford's first cost is low. Resale value is high. Ford's Short Stroke engines are designed for less friction, less wear, lower running costs. Maintenance costs are lower, too, because Ford trucks are built stronger for. rugged long life. And a 10-million truck study proves Ford trucks last longer. Look at what you get and you'll see you get more for your money in a Ford. For example, only Ford gives you modern Short Stroke power in every truck, V-8 or Six. Sodium-cooled exhaust valves in Heavy Duty engines run up to 225° cooler, last longer. More comfort with a Driverized Cab. More safety with Ford's exclusive Lifeguard features.
