Sim Heckle says his wife' ought to be saving money.
Bobbed hair less grief with the hairdresser! Short
skirts less cloth to pay for!
But where Sim gets bumped is in the extra bills
for silk stockings and little hats.
Some of the short-skirt, bobbed-hair batteries
we've met up with are just about as saving as Sim's
wife! Big economy on the surface big expense in
the long run.
The CW Battery (Wood Separator) is a battery
that wears a calico dress and old fashioned stockings.
But you can take our word for it the value's there!

Think of it sounds impossible. It means over loo
miles on two gallons gas. ... , i '.
This mileage was recently made with a Ford car
equipped with the New 1922 Stromberg Carburetor and
Hot Spot. That's what did the trick that's what made
the gallon of gas work overtime.
It is the result of two years of effort and achievement
by the best corps of carburetor engineers in the country.
Made under supervision of American Automobile As.
sociation. An Officially measured 1-gallon tank of ordi
nary 57 test gasoline was used and car driven over the
Dixie Highway near Chicago. Car carried 3 passengers.
Total weight of car and passengers was 2370 pounds.
With no change in carburetor adjustment car was
throttled down to 6 miles per hour, then throttle was
thrown wide open and a speed of 45 miles was reached.
Car accelerated from standing start to 25 miles per hour
in 11 4-5 seconds from 10 miles to 30 miles an hour in 15
seconds. This most remarkable performance is the sen
sation of the Automobile World.
You are wasting gas stop it's foolishness it's like
pouring it on the ground. Decide now get more miles
out of every gallon get better acceleration, easier start
ing you can do it with this marvelous Carburetor.
Equip your Ford today don't be satisfied with fifteen
miles on a gallon get twice that the money you save
will soon pay for the Carburetor.

labor shorage does not neci'Rttarily
mean that every man in the country
has a job, but that there are jobs
enough if every man without a job
could get to it No country, at nny
time in history, has ever succeeded in
effecting such perfect distribution of
labor that all jobs were always filled
without there being any jobs or men
left over. Thus at the present time
there are states with too many farm
hands and states with a crying need
for farm hands. There are industries
with a forceful demand for skilled
laborers which can not be found and !
trades with skilled laborers who can
not find work. It is fundamental and
country-wide conditions which the de

summarizing the decrease in unem

national aspect of grave questions.

prejudice to the accuracy of the sta
