The engineer paid little attention to the dog. He h»d enough to watch for without watching the pup. Suddenly, the dog leaped through the cab window, raced ahead of the engine and b«can barking furiously. The engineer ilammed on hw brakes. The train screeched to a stop. The engineer Jumped from hU cab and ran lo the dog. There on the track lay an unconscious man, sprawled across one of the ralti. Seconds later he would have been ground to death under the engine's wheels. For hi* alertncM, Rags won an honor award. But even more, he won the heart of every railroader In the yard. From that day on he had the •un of the yards and the engines. He slept in the yard master's office, and barked furiously at any non-railroader who entered hU domain. On his collar he proudly wore his medal. A few months ago, a stranger wandered through the yards. He apparently was quicker than Hags. Or maybe Rags' one blind eye handicapped him. In any case, when the switchmen finally found Rags, he was bailly beaten. His collar 'and medal were mlising. Today, .Rag* still rides Ihe engines. He i* still top dog of the yards. But both railroad men and Rags are kecplng;an eye open for the man who stole that medal. The switchmen believe Rag« will find hlm i If he ever returns to tile yards. They'll take over from there.

PHONE 515 You feel it not only in the cloud-soft ride of this big beauty, but in the way it seems to lean into the curves, the way it holds its "track," answers unfailingly to your touch on the \vhcc I. The reason? Simply that even before the war, Buick found a way to get greater softness and greater safety from standard-size tires that arc avai I- •ble «nywher«. Put 8 Buick wheel beside a wheel from other-, car§, and you see at once that Buick rims are wider. In fact, they are an inch to an inch and a half wider - from 20% to 33%. By this simple step, standard-size tires of any make are given greater air capacity. This permits lower air prcs- tmre and the softer ride thai naturally comes from traveling on 25 pounds instead of 30. In addition, widening the base of the tires gives bracing against side-thrust, as your legs brace yon when yon stand with feet apart. This cheeks sidcsway and the tendency of a tire to "roll under" on sharp or last turns. Furthermore, the tread is flattened. More rubber is put on the road. More rubber means more traction — more braking power — more resistance to skidding — far, far better car control. And you have only to compare the handling of a Buick with any other car to sec the result. .. You travel with a soft, level buoyancy that is Buick's own. You seem to feel your car leaning into the curves, like a race horse coming into the stretch, instead of swaying outward. You come out of fast emergency swerves straight and true, with na wheel fight to keep your car on course. You start, stop, accelerate and turn with a surc-footedness that keeps driving tension away, lets you enjoy Buick's soft comfort to the full. And all this has been true of every Buick built since before the war, with no change in factory-installed tires. Check up and see. For a softer ride that is also a safer and surer one — get your order in now for a Buick. We'll take it whether or not you hay* a car to trade.
