The logs are mostly red and burr oak, and all except a few were cut from native timber on the tract. The chinking ibetween logs on both interior and exterior is cement. The inside of the house was lathed and plastered. The architect and contractor was D.D. Hammond, Baptist minister who served the Bancroft community in 1918 and became a friend of the Bennetts.

Various experiments are being tried in an effort to get independent action for an automobile's front wheels. All of which is simply another tribute to the soundness of Ford engineering and the Ford V-8 for 1934. When you drive this car you get free action not only for the front wheels— but for all 4 wheels, Ford transverse cantilever springs provide individual suspension for both front and rear axles. In the new Ford these springs have been made more flexible. This type of construction is not .experimental and has the advantage of comfort plus the proved safety of a front axle. This new Ford combines V-8 power with gasoline economy—20 miles to the gallon at » speed of 45 miles per hour, in exhaustive road runs. It will do 80 miles an hour without difficulty. At 50 or 60 miles per hour it is actually running at ease! This reserve power means acceleration wo* equalled by practically any other make of American automobile, regardless of cost. Before you buy any car at »ny prise, drive the new Ford V-8 for J934. IOWA FORD $511 ANU UP r. q. B. DETROIT IMMEDIATE PEUVKRY j i ;_ •« for 1934
