CLEAR LAKE, Feb. 27--B. E. Manley was the principal speaker at the meeting of the Clear Lake credit bureau which was held laat night. Dinner was served at the Soda Grill. Mr. Manley was introduced by C. F. Crane. Mr. Manley said credit control is up to the merchants, not the customers. It is important that the merchants establish a time limit and have a reasonable understanding as to when the bill will be paid, he continued.' Merchants don't need to apologize -for billing their customers, he said, and regular monthly statements provide a long stride toward perfect understanding between merchant and 1 customer. Mr. Manley advocated institutional advertising, "Sell the public the institution," he declared. "More and more we are realizing that persons are being attracted by confidence into an. institution rather than the price leader. , "Persons have to depend on what the merchant tells them about his merchandise. If they find they can trust him and his judgment they will return again and again." Mr. Manley also'stressed the importance of cleanliness and attractively kept stores. A discussion of charities and advertising followed Mr. Manley's talk. The merchants expressed themselves as being generally opposed to promiscuous ticket selling ind soliciting any of the business- iiouses. A general discussion of benefits and progress of the credit bureau was also heard. Clear Lake Churches C ONGREG ATION AL W. B. Milne, pastor. Sunday school at 10 o'clock.

Engineer Says Speed of Autos May Be Cut Ten Years From Now DETROIT, Feb. 27. (UP)--Possibility, that automobiles 10 years from now may be geared for a maximum speed of around 45 miles an hour is seen here by L. Clayton Hills, designing engineer. Criticism of speedy cars, often blamed for many accidents, was given as the reason. The idea also was offered that cars of two types might be built, the medium-speed machine for city use and the speedier types, capable of 100 miles an hour, for trans-continental and highway use. f H. Ledyard Towle, color specialist of a national advertising company, visions the future car shaped like an egg, the motor in the rear, the wheels practically concealed beneath the body, and the color job designed not for beauty but for visibility. The ideas were advanced at a national meeting of the society of automotive engineers. Fredericksburg School Head, Wins Fellowship FREDERICKSBURG, Feb. 27.-Supt. A. W.

Takes % the soap--saves Vz the time. A NEW discovery is cutting dish washing time in half -- eliminating greasy film on dishes and the scum in the dishpan -- the penalties you local women have been forced to pay for the hardness of city water. It is not a soap but a water-softening cleanser that makes any soap more effective in cleansing resul ts by changing "hard" water to "soft". And you ' need use only one-fourth the soap formerly needed. What It Is It 13 a preparation called Climalene that you add to your washing water. Just a teaspoon or two. Instantly, it takes all the harshness out of that water. Makes it soft as rain water. At the same time, due to certain bland cieansirur aorent it inctantlw DfSSOLVES all dirt, stains and grime. And thus cuts washing time ONE- HALF or mo re. Use the soap or soap flakes you ordinarily do. Then see for yourself the amazing results.
