The Los Angeles Hams are
three-point favorites to smash the
Natiora! Football League's only
ivmaining pe-riect record Sunday
.'.hen they tackle the Green Bay
Packers at Milwaukee.
Los Angeles is favored although
it dropped two of its first three
games while Green Bay. surprise
feiim of the campaign, swept Us
first three starts.
In another, ke-y Western Division
same, the champion Baltimore
Colts '2-1 1 are slim, one-point
choices for their game with the
Bears M-2' at Chicago. The Lions
'0-3' are lavored over the San
Francisco Forty-Niners 2-1 by
two ixinls at Detroit in the other
Western Division clash.
The New York Giants are Sun
day's heaviest favorites. They are
ti'-i point choices to whip the
Eagles at New York although
they look a 4'J-21 walloping from
the Fugles two weeks ago at Phil
adelphia. Steeiers-Redskins Even
New York, Philadelphia and the
Washington Hedskins are tied for
the Eastern Division lead with 2-1
records. The Redskins and Pitts
burgh Stealers '1-2' "are rated
even for their game at Washing
Ion. In the other Eastern Division
pairing, the Browns J-2 are 4'ii
point choices to beat the Chicago
Cardinals '1-2' at Cleveland.
Green Bay has been winning
with a good defense that has al
lowed only 36 points, an average
of 12 a game, in defeating the
Bears, Lions and Forty-Niners.
The Rams, who feature long
range ollensive power, are fa
vored over Green Bay although
Bill Wade, their No. 1 quarter
back, has a knee injury which
may hamper him. Wade likes to
fire long passes to Jim Phillips
and Del Shofner. Jon Arnett, his
other top target, is injured. The
Packers also must stop Ollie Mat
son, who cracked the Bear line
for 199 yards during a 28-21 Ram
triumph last Sunday.

'Jhe pifty-fifth . . . and the Finest !
It waa shortly after the turn of the century that
the first Cadillac car "the automobile built to the
highest standards it is possible to enforce on the
production of a motor car" made its appearance.
' Every year since save for a period when Cadillac
devoted its energies to the national defense a new
interpretation of this unique goal has been presented
to the world's motorists.
The superlative motor car illustrated above is the
fifty-fifth in this unprecedented succession of dis
tinguished automotive creations.
And it is, far and away, the finest and the noblest
Cadillac of them all!
Never before has Cadillac artistry created such
elegance of form and line. It has a commanding pres
ence that is uniquely Cadillac.
Never before has Cadillac engineering produced so
abundantly. The car is smooth and quiet to a degree
that challenges belief.
Never before has Cadillac craftsmanship provided
such interior luxury. And the complement of con
veniences has never been more satisfying.
No matter how many of the fifty-five Cadillacs you
may have owned and enjoyed over the years you
still have a wonderful experience ahead of you in this
latest "car of cars."
We suggest you see and drive it very soon. And
we hope you will come expecting great things.
