There/ire as many different places to get your car greased as Heinz has pickles. They are all different. If my watch stops I take it to the jeweler that sold it or to one that handles the same make. He knows hotter how to service it. If every automobile owner would grease their car every 500 miles and have it done by someone that understands that particular car, a good many dollars could be saved in repairs. We just completed the installation of the very latest type of hydraulic lift on our grease rack. Our man greases Ford cars, exclusive, and understands every working part of the car. A good many car owners neglect their car until it needs repairs and 50',', of all repair jobs are necessary because some working part has not been lubricated. Our price for lubrication is $1.00 and if our records show we greased your car or truck each 500 miles and repairs are necessary through lack of lubrication, we will repair It free of charge. Be fair with your equipment, lubricate each fiOO milen, take it where they understand how to do the work right. We have a special grease service for our regular customers. Ask .about it and save money. --CI^AKENXJE SCIIUKKI '··TMT3-JL": china,' with : two American womeu ^
