This particular whale is credited with having put up one of Ihe mosl lerriflc battles In whaling history before he finally yielded to the harpoons of a crew which encountered him near Sail Clemente island, off the coast of Southern California. Lying perfectly preserved under n glass case, this whale is declared by experts to be one of the finest specimens of the finback variety ever captured. It is more than sixty-five feet long and the massive body weighs seventy-two tons. The embalming of the whale required more than 38 barrels of fluid. In spile of the strenuous baltle he whale gave his captors, the gi- antic creature's body shows no igns ot i the struggle.

I F YOU'RE careful about the way you sjiend your dollars for a low-priced car, you'll be extra-careful about the way you count cylinders. Because if you count more than six, you're not going to get the lowest all-round motoring cost that is saving so many thousands of dollars for Chevrolet owners every day. And if you count less than six—you won't be any better off from a dollars-and-cents standpoint. Six is the smallest number oC cylinders you can have, and still get Chevrolet's built-in smoothness. And built-in smoothness saves you money. It guards against the insidious workings of excessive vibration. It holds repair bills ;1own to rock-bottom. So—if the car is a Chevrolet Six—you'll SAVE! ESPECIALLY AFTER 5,010 MILES What's more important—you'll keep on saving. There's nothing temporary about Chevrolet economy. It lasts! Especially after 5,000—10,000—15,000 miles, when the cost of operating other low-priced cars goesup.ChevroIct'scoststaysdown. More economical to start with, Chevrolet is more economical still, after long usagcl Best of all: you can save with six cylinders, and not sacrifice one important advancement. You enjoy Free Wheeling, SyncTO-Mesh gear-shifting, roomy Fisher bodies. Considering these facts- do you honestly think it's wise—or economical— to keep that old car any longer?
