One coat really covers, so you need less of it. Developed by Davis Paint Company and advertised in LIFE magazine, new DA-TEX is the best thing that has happened to vinyl latex wall paints in years. Insist on Densitized DA-TEX when you're ready to paint. There's a wide variety of decorator colors at Sailer's Davis Paint Store, Algona, Iowa. What a coincidence. The nicest things at the Auto Show are all in one place. And now they've won Motor Trend's Car of the Year Award. (Can there be more to this than just coincidence?)
