individual units of-men, among whom
may be some from Oregon. Believe me.
it's great work they're doing, and I
should like to see Oregon people realize
how greatly the boys coming into this
town need a welcome. One can scarcely
realize it until seeing the situation
"It is the unanimous opinion here
that New York is the place to do this
work and that home-city parades, nice

York they should be shown every pos

"Peggy Curtis and Maude Gilbert
Judge Burke and others from our state
are welcoming the boys in fine style

"Right now there are nearly 500
Oregon boys on provost guard duty

THE best proof of the popularity of Paige Cars is the
shortage of Paige Cars. We mean that literally--a
shortage of New Paiges and Used Paiges.
We have never had enough Paige Sixes-.-either the New
Series five-passenger Linwood or the New Series seven-;
passenger Essex to satisfy the world-wide demand.
That shortage today is more acute than. ever.
The explanation for that lies fairly and squarely in Paige
Worth. Paige Owners find that Paige Quality pays in
Economy and long Service precisely as Paige Beauty
pays in Satisfaction. Low up-keep, absence of repair'
bills, continuous running, are the foundation upon which
Paige Supremacy has been built.
