It's when a man conies into possession of his first Cadillac—and we sec the wonderful things it docs for him. We see his happiness as he places his order—not as the result of a sudden inspiration, but because he has gradually reached the conclusion that he has earned the right to enjoy the unquestioned best. And then we see him on that happy day when his car is available for delivery—and he settles himself so proudly behind, the wheel. lie's a little quizzical, we sometimes note. Could it be, he wonders, that he has been anticipating a bit too much F And then he's out in the street—headed for home the long way 'ranml. Those are thrilling days that follow. There's the first long ride with the family ... the first trip to the office . . . and the time he learns, in an emergency, that his car is worth its whole price in safety alone. And then, almost before he knows it, the odometer registers a thousand miles—and he's back to tell us all about it. And, perhaps, to grumble a little bit at giving it up—even for a little while! Yes, it's a priceless privilege to watch all this. Make* a man feel that he's doing good. SULLIVAN-NELSON CHEVROLET CO 301 Weit Wolnur Phone 578
