IOWA MAY SEEK SPECIAL STAMP Favorable Comment Should Request Be Made Given by Herring. WASHINGTON, (IP) -- In the event Iowa decides to seek a special United States postage skimp issue to commemorate the hundredth anniversary o£ Us advent to territorial status, it will find the path well marked. Postoffice authorities said Monday "countless" applications come in evei-y year, several hundred travel the route toward consideration and final action by the postmaster general and a few are granted. Herring Comment Favorable. A suggestion of ihe Iowa territorial centennial temporary committee for an Iowa stamp on July 3, 1938, the hundredth anniversary of the day the area gained territorial status, brought favorable comment from Senator Clyde L. Herring, who said he would be able to aid in the proposal. Normally, a slate's drive for ;i commemorative issue turns first to political routes, with pressure from state and congressional leaders on the postoffice department. Some times slates seek a good word from the president, an enthusiastic philatelist. Name Army, Navy Scries. Commemorative stamp, issues became more numerous beginning in 1924, were limited i'or a time to four a year, then gradually increased to seven or eight annually- Right now the department is issuing an army and navy series. In general, the department's altitude toward centennial com- memorative issues and issues on other events of national interest has been favorable. A number of the older, and some of the younger, states already have had issues. Three cent issues have been the most common, but several years ago, when lower postage rates prevailed, some of the commemorative stamps were two cent issues. Sponsored by Historical Groups. Often historical societies i n . t h e stales sponsoring the issues are called upon to suggest designs. When these are not too elaborate, as sometimes is the case, they are worked over by department engravers and resubmitted to the state. A member of the senate committee on banking and currency, Herring made it clear the committee is not friendly toward proposals to issue special commemorative coins if Iowa's plans turn that way. Ses-eral proposals for special coins now are before congress. At Rites in Chicago. HANLONTOWN--M. C. Monson and sister, Carree, left for Chicago to attend the funeral o£ their brother-in-law, S.

The Ford became famous because it filled a f u n d a m e n t a l need--"Dependable, economical transportation." As roads and cars improved, Ford kept'ahead. In 1932, a new fundamental step was taken -- the introduction of the V-lype 8-cylinder engine in a low-price car. The V-8 engine was not new. It had been used for j'cars. But always in large, expensive cars. Ford found the way lo produce this really superb power plant in a really low-price car. Today, more than three million owners are enjoying brilliant Ford V-8 performance on the road. Their cars are set apart from older cars by a fsimla- mental principle -- the V-type 8-cylindcr power plant--not merely ihe temporary styles nnd fancies of the day. E'E" 1 cylinders give smoothness, performance and flexibility that a lesser number of cylinders, naturally, cannot give. And V- type is the most advanced power-plant c o n s t r u c t i o n -- o n l a n d , water, or in the air. Still pioneering, Ford provides for ]937 a choice of two V-type 8-cylimlcr engine sizes. 85 horsepower for lop-no»cli performance. 60 horsepower for rock-holtom economy. Each is b u i l t into the same big, roomy car, ivilli tlio same modern features. Each will prove to you, in its own way, how much ihe modern V-8 engine? hclpg lo make the Ford V-8 T U B QUALITY CAK IN THE LOW-PRICE I-'IKLD.
