See Our Special Wine Display FREE RECIPE,BOOKLETS rCJTER'JT LIQUOR STORE 106 North Broadway looking for POWER? Better Buii Buick! T HAT bold bonnet that stretches out ^ before your eyes on a 1950 Buick isn't there just for show. Lift it up, and you'll find that the space beneath is abundantly occupied, by one of the biggest hoodfuls of power you'll find in any motorcar. What you're looking at is Buick's modern version of rhe high-compression valve-in- head engine, which gains extra wallop from the fact that it uses the exclusive Fireball combustion principle. We could list a lot of mechanical reasons why fuel gives up extra power in a Fireball engine—how it's wrapped in a swirling, ball-shaped charge-how it burns with a smooth, clean thrust that delivers maximum action. But the best way to find out what all this means is to touch off the eager horsepower out on the highway by a gentle nudge of your toe—and feel your shoulders press deep in the cushions behind them. -INow all this sounds thriving, you say, but how about the feed-bills for all these horses? Flow about milcs-per-gallon? The practical answer to that one is found in this year's experience with the SUPER and SPECIAL—and even the ROADMASTER. In all three, the horsepower was stepped up at the start of the year—and in all three, happy o'.vaers report the best mileage in modern Buick experience. This is due to a little-known but authentic engineering fact—which is that an engine burns less gas when it doesn't have to labor. At any normal driving speed, therefore, extra power is extra thrifty. So we say again—if you're looking for power—mighty power—buoyant power- silken power—thrifty power—better buy Buick. Your Buickdealer is eager for the chance to demonstrate how sound this hint really is. LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK CO. Walnut at Broadway Phone 555 WHIN HUM AyiOMOIIlH AM IUUT IU|C|( W1U llmB THIM
