During this time many of the stars for whom she has stood in have "plugged" her for a contract. Dorothy Mnekaill told one 'producer that he would regret the 1 he didn'i sign her.

No less" Just compare a Chevrolet Six-whose speedometer teads more than 10,000 miles with any other low-priced car of about the, same mileage. Compare bodies. Compare chassis. Compaic J- thc way the two cars have stood up. Compare the gas and cil mileage each is getting. You'll be surprised at what a difference there is in favor of Chevrolet. The reason for this difference after 10,000 miles can be summed up in three major facts: First, Chevrolet is such a wonderfully «•(-//- htiilt car. Second, Chevrolet has adequate weight, utiuzunl ruggcdncss and strength to withstand the effects of long, hard usage. Third, (he Chevrolet engine lias SIX CYLINDERS. And SIX is the fewest number of cylinders you can have in n car, and avoid destructive vibration. Play safe, in choosing that lov/-priced car of yours. I'm vour good money in a sure thing.
