CHARLES M. SCHWAB is credited with say
ing: "Give me the men and I can make or
sell anything." It's Service that we have to sell.
So we. started out by getting around us the MEN
that could make that Service mean something.
Men who know, their business, men who can
show you that they know. Men who are far
sighted enough to make an inexpensive repair
when it would be just as easy to sell a new bat

things can they hope to win and hold the .confi
dence 'of every car owner in town.
And these men are backed up by the me
chanical equipment that makes their work a
" pleasure to them. This, too, means much to you
as a car owner. It means minimum time where
a repair is needed and a grade of workmanship
And-it is a pleasure, too, in this business of
ours, to be able to look our friends square in the
eye rind recommend the Philadelphia Diamond
