TOBACCO CAPITAL "BELIEVE IT*r NOT- PROVES IT RICHMOND AWARDS O.6. BIG VICTORY OVER RIVAL BRANDS I went down' to Richmond, Virginia, the other day. Richmond, one of the nation's capitals in tobacco products, where they know tobacco like Detroit knows motor cars. I gave 904 Richmond smokers one each of the four leading cigarettes . . . with the names hidden by a black mask. "Don't try to guess 'em, Richmond!" I snid. "Just smoke 'em . . . nnd pick out the cigarette that tastes best." It was the same old story. Again, O. G. rolled up a decisive majority vote. Chosen by the world's foremost tobacco town for its superior throat-ease and smoothness. If that isn't a Supreme Court decision . . . what is?

The league's elder stntesmen, I understand, considered it a choice of doubtful expediency, as implying too close an affiliation with a single denomination. Perhaps also the Bishop himself did not cure to be chosen. All the same, thr league has not done so well since tben nnd the bishop has had considerable trouble.

There are, in addition, three other features of importance to every far-seeing automobile owner . . . low first cost, low cost of operation and lip-keep, and low yearly depreciation. During the life of the car, the day-by-day economy of owning a Ford will amount to considerably more than the saving on the first cost. You save when you buy the Ford and you save every mile you drive. The reasons for this economy are simplicity of design, high quality of materials and care in manufacturing and assembling. Many vital parts are made to limits of one one-thousandth of an inch. Some to three ten-thousandths of an inch. Throughout, the new Ford is an outstanding example of fine craftsmanship in automobile engineering. The more you see of the new Ford -- the more you talk to Ford owners and experienced mechanics-- the more certain you become of this fact. . . .
