A Big Success ! — And We Thank You The public response to our "Open House" and inspection of the new Buri elevator last Friday greatly exceeded our hopes and expectations . . . and interest in our new grain-handling structure was very high. Incidentally, over 800 bottles of pop, 60 gallons of lemonade and 80 dozen cookies were served to the visitors on the one day. Many took the "trip to the top" in the elevator, saw the grain-distributing machinery, and enjoyed the view. We sincerely thank you for your interest, and pledge anew the services of our co-operative to the farmers of the area. BURI CO-OPERATIVE ELEVATOR CO. BU»T, IOWA No Deal in Town Can Give You More Car for Your Money! HERE'S only one sensible way to JL judge your best automobile buy—and that's to measure liow much car you get for yuur money! On every important point of motor car value, the 1955 Pontiac stands head and shoulders above any car in its class. For example, a Pontiac with four-barrel 200-h.p.* Htrato-Streak V-8 is priced hundreds of dollars lower than any other car equalling its power! Take the vital matter of wheel base—so important to ride, comfort and stability— and you'll find Pontiac outrneasures any car anywhere near its price and many that are tagged at hundreds of dollars more. And here's a car so distinctively beautiful it's bound to stay in style for a loog time to come. Certainly all this adds up to a wonderful buy—especially when Pontiac prices fit so easily into any new-car budget. That's why Pontiac sales are at an all- time high! This same record sales volume permits us to make trade-in allowances that can equal or beat any deal in town! So before you buy any car at any price— before you consider any deal on any car—remember this: When you deal with us for a big, powerful Pontiac, you start with a car that represents an unmatched value— and in addition you save still further from the most liberal trade-in policy in our history. Come in and let us prove that Pontiac deal is the beat deal you can make! *O/>lio>m/ at low ejclra cunt. our Ernie Williams Ponttae STATE ST. ALGONA, IOWA
