HIGHWAY EMERGENCY FUND HERE AND T H E R E Items From 100 Globe-Gazette Correspondents in North Iowa and Minnesota titan in THE substantial worth of the new Ford is reflected in its good performance, economy and reliabUity. Its stamina and endurance are particularly apparent in sections where bad roads and severe weather put a heavy extra burden on the automobile. In less than a year a new Ford Tudor Sedan was driven more thau seventy-tlu-ee thousand miles over a difficult route. The operating C o 9l per mile was very low and practically the only expense for repairs was for new P«ton rings and a new bearing for the generator. The car carried an average load of 1200 pounds of mail and was driven 250 miles daily. "The Ford has never failed to go when I was ready," writes one of the three mail carriers operating the car. "The starter did the tncfc last winter even at 34 degrees below zero. The gas runs about 20 jniles per gallon. At times I pull a trailer whenever I have a bulky load." Many other Ford owners report the same satisfactory performance. Every part has been made to endure _ to Bervc you faithfully and well for many thousands of miles.
