The letter follows:) Dear Working Man: Yes you are right In saying thib Is a sad day In Blytheville H .so happened, since my employer was out of town, that I had the opportunity of attending two of the retail merchants meeting (the first one uml the last one).

I agree with you when you -said there are several things that can be done. I think the employees of all retail merchants of Blytheville should cooperate, not for the purpose of 'Joins anything contrary to the A'ishc-s of our employers, but for the pur-' ><jse of fighting for the good .hlngs that they are willing tc jive us.

P ROBABLY that faithful Buick of yours still can show a clean pair of heels to other cars on the road — probably still rides and runs like a charm. It makes you realize how wise you were to have picked a Buick in the first place. Even though time always takes a toll, ftuicks d« carry their years well. They can keep their eagerness to go, their lighthearted gait and gentle comfort — particularly when they are rewarded with the considerate care that Buick dealers know how to provide. It's care (hat brings out your car's youthful spirit — care that lets you feel that suddenly it's young again. liuick car care is something far different from what's rcgnlnrly called service. It's something that ou!y a liuick man can give. IJcctiusc he is trained in :il] the needs and preferences of Bnicks. The tools he uses ;ire the right Buick tools. And any replacement part your car mny need is a Ruick-cnginccrcd part. So it's easy to sec why you rear is so ready (o give yon its hest \vlicn it receives regular Huick car care — care hy men who know Buicks through and through and love them heart and soul. /// W^i^?'- Couth*!I i-KjaisxtsKiiS^SirsiT. w ..
