Kor five miles down the creek valley, Hoffman said, there i« not a trace of human habitation. Only the appearance of a few scattered houses on the Mite as the line goes on shatters one's dream that the section, In reality is virgin land remote from civilization.

THINK OF Youe 1 · - ' M ! i ' ' AUTOMOBILE IN TERMS OF TOMORROW Ultimate cost is as important as first cost in the purchase of an automobile W HEN you purchase an automob te you are making an investment of a coiisidei able amount of money. It is essential, therefore, that; rou give careful thought to the best selection and kno w what you are getting for your automobile dollars. The first cost is important became it may mean an immediate, satisfactory saving. C f equal importance is the ultimate cost after thousa nds of miles of service. This ultimate cost is the true measure of automobile value. J.HE first cost of the new Ford is un isually low not only because of economies in manufacturing, but because the same principles that inspi 'e these savings are extended to every other step that means greater service to the public. It is easy to see that economies in production would be of little valt e if they were sacrificed later through high charges f r distribution, selling, financing and accessories. The Ford dealer, therefore, does 1 usiness on the same low-profit margin as the Ford M tor Company. His discount or commission is twenty-five to fifty per cent lower than that of any otter automobile dealer. You gain because he makes a : small profit on many sales instead of a large profit fn fewer sales. The difference in selling cost, combined with the low charges for financing and accessories, amounts to at least $50 to $75 on each ear. This is as important as economies in production, in keeping down the price you pay for the new Ford. 1HE low ultimate cost of the. new Ford is the result of sound design, quality of material and unusual care in manufacturing. Friction and wear are reduced by the accuracy with which each part is made and assembled. These factors combine to decrease the cost of operation,and add months and years to the useful life of the car. The good performance and low yearly depreciation of the new Ford are indicative of the enduring quality built into it at: the factory. oERVICE charges are on the same fair, economical basis as the making and selling oC the car and replacement parts are always available iit low prices through all Ford dealers. In two, three or five years, depending on how much you drive, the saving in operating and maintaining a new Ford will, amount to even more than the saving on the first cost. Think in terms of tomorrow, therefore, when you purchase an automobile. For tomorrow will reveal its true worth.
