Inconoclasta from time im

commercial aspect s--and who
doesn't wish that when the most
used book in the world grows use
less? But -
Merchants insist on throwing

; public, forgetting that only the
"flay before It wished for a white
Yulettde, comes back with a rush
a grand rush with the net result
that Mr. and Mrs. Public buy
things galore, ranging from sox
to Rolls Royces.
And now Christmas is less than
three weeks away!
Lack of money notwithstand
ing. Salem people are doing
plenty of buying for December 25
already, the merchants say.
Let's just suppose that you, like
farmers, transients and reporters,
think you hare not the where
withal to buy Yule tokens. Then,
not being able entirely to resist
the lure of holly and fir trees,
we'll take a little tour of the
windows. Window shopping.
Only, here's a warning.
This has an adrantage, you
know. You don't hare to be Im
mune to blondes or bright spark
ly eyea and pleasant smiles. Or,
maybe you do have to be Immune
to window shop.
Here's a window that a week
ago looked quite commonplace;
now, a sprig of holly, a few bright
fltters and Christmas' lures.
That baby fork and spoon all done
up on a rare Mickey Mouse crea

to get that for Molly's cherub.
Aha, the same window has pewter,
silverware, candlesticks. Let's go

For this is window shopping

Thinking about men and smok

1932 Chevrolet Offers
Syncro-Mesh, Free Wheeling
Many new Features Mark This General Motors
Product now on Display
Chevrolet's new car for 1932 is on display in dealers
Embodying silent syncro-mesh transmission in combin
ation with selective free-wheeling, a twenty per cent increase
in power, top "speed of 65 to 70 miles an hour, the new car
remains in the price range of the current series, the lowest at
which a Chevrolet has ever sold.
Jleralded as "the great Amerl-O
can value for 1932," the car
boasts more extensive changes
than any annual Chevrolet mode
since the change-over to a six in
1928. Yet changes are mostly re
finements over the basic design
of the 1931 car, which, from the
standpoint of public acceptance,
was the most successful in the
history of the company and
brought Chevrolet first place in
the industry during the highly
competitive market of the past 12
Practically every proven auto
mobile feature of recent years is
incorporated in the new car, as
well as a new "stabilized" front
end construction embodied for
the first time .on any car in the
new 1932 Chevrolet. Outstanding
improvements in the '32 line over
last year's models are down-draft
carburetion, counter-ba lanced
crankshaft, smaller wheels and
larger tires, radically changed
front end appearance, "finger
touch" front seat adjustment,
cowl ventilator on all models,
hood doors instead of louvres,
improved clutch and an additional
cross member in the frame.
Free wheeling Is provided by an
over-running clutch, engaged at
the discretion of the driver by a
control button on the dash. The
wheelbase remains at 109 In
ches. In the new Chevrolet, the fen
ders, radiators and headlamps are
