WHY F AM A FORD DEALER-Because 90% of all automobile accidents result in a broken windshield and either driver or passengers are"cut by flying glass and sometimes both. Every purchaser of a new Ford gets the protection of a shatterproof windshield glass--a quality feature that only Ford and a few manufacturers of cars selling for four and five times the price of a Ford give as standard equipment. Any surgeon will tell you he has taken a great many stitches as the result of cuts from flying windshield glass in automobile accidents. Another unfortunate thing Is they always leave a hideous scar. Next time you see a friend with a scar or their face, ask them the kind of an automobile accident they were in and remember, Ford owners are protected with a shatterproof windshield glass. We have several exhibits of windshield glass in our showroom.--come in and examine them. Today, modern railroad coaches, steamships as well as airplanes are constructed of steel because it is stronger than wood. Ford discontinued wood construction in bodies along with the model T. Let us show you why a Ford steel body will not dry rot under the top covering. --Gi«\TiRNCK SCIHJKKI naugural E v e n t Held Clear Lake Country Club. at bers of the board of directors and are: Activities, Mr. Schukei; athletics, Mr. Patton; atlendanco and house, Mr. Miller; fellowship, Mr. Finlayson; finance, Mr. Lien; inter- club relations and on-to-Des Moines, Mr. Makeever; membership, George Wolf; program.
