E. S. Matheson, travel manager of the Automobile Club of Michigan and nationally-known travel expert., said thai motorists went to the open roads during the winter mcarhs in numbers 6 per cent greater than [he 1939-40 winter. Florida Travel Gains "Most of the increase was accounted for in Florida where travel was 22 per cent over the same period a year ago," Matheson said. The encampment, and industrial j defense areas of the South were | scenes of extra-heavy motor travel j because workers and families of! the one-year anr>y men have been J unable to find housing facilities! near the defense plants or army camps, Matheson said. "Motor travel usually drops as employment figures near 100 per csnt," the travel authority continued. "Motorists are too busy making money to fake extended trips and they seek recreational facilities nearer homo."

Moser appear within thirty TAX 'Ihis is the year for Assessing City and Personal Proper I y and it must he assessed by Because we were once a customer ourself. .. we announce that When we were young, we used to be afraid to go in a store without coming out with a package under our arm. This gave us STORE-0-PHOBiA. We never entered one unless we needed something. o" So when we grew up and finally got to rim a store of our own, we decided to Change Things. We informed our salesmen that they would be shot on sight if they tried to force their atten- tions on customers. We ordered them to leave men to their own inclinations until they began to make a noise as if they wanted something. And, if they walked out empty-handed, not to give them any dark looks. It worked. Men showed they liked the idea and started acting natural—not hunted—in our store. It was so successful that we finally decided to make a public announcement of our policy, HERE IT IS! Come on in and JUST LOOK AROUND whenever you want to. Make a habit of doing it on your lunch hour—which is henceforth and forever after to be known as THE BROWSER'S HOUR. Our Hart. Schaffner & Marx clothes (smart metropolitan styles in superb woolens) are worth browsing at. And so are our well-selected furnishings, hats, etc. If any of our salesmen ever swoops on you, we'll give him a spanking.
