Jimmie Neville The Shoe Man Algonii, la. Let the car speak for itself HUNDREDS of thousands of people now own and drive Ford V-8 cars. Some neighbor or friend of yours has one. If we told you what we think of the car, you might say we are prejudiced, •o we let the car and its owner tell you. Economy of operation is one of the first points they will emphasize—the owner will boast of it and the car will prove it. The 1934 car is even better than the 1933— and that was our best car up to its time. The new car is more beautiful — faster—more powerful —gives more miles to the gallon—better oil economy—U easier riding—cheaper to own and operate than any car we ever built. You owe it to yourself and your pocketbook to ask our Ford Dealer to let you see this car, and let you drive it for yourself. At the wheel of the car you will be sure to reach a right decision. The Ford V-8 will tell you its own story. NEW FORD V-8 for 1934 WITH THE NEW YEAR 1933 is gone! 1934 is here! The stirring welcome to the New Year is p&st —we are looking forward—planning for the 12 months ahead. We look forward to a greater demand for service —a demand which will replace telephones which have been taken out and increase the use of Loqg Distance. Since late in 1931, each month brought lo«ses in telephones until September 1933. Then the tide turned. From September to the end of the year, we gained telephones. Day by day and hour by hour, we strive to provide satisfactory telephone service at the lowest cost to the pubjic consistent with the financial safety of the business.
