GETS GOLD STAR
Elliott Motor Company
Shows Efficiency in All
For its efficiency in every depart
ment during November, the Elliott
Motor company has been awarded
a gold star by the Ford Motor com
pany. Only three other agencies
in the state received this distinction
for the month. It is given in recog
nition of not less than 100 percent
efficiency in the sales room, store
room, shop, cleanliness and general
appearance of the establishment
The gold star system was inaugu
rated by the Ford Motor company for
the purpose of putting more kick into
dealers. Going on the theory that
appearances count in a garage busi
ness this is featured in the gold star
awards. The business for the month
is carefully analyzed and compared
with corresponding months. In what
is termed the sales department the
Elliott was 121 percent efficient
for the month.

THK ancient iltrlsuuus enrol, "Holy

be the most beautiful of all Christ-

ascribed to Mnrilu Luther, but the
consensus of expert opinion Is that It
Is much older thtin his time and la one
of the oldest of German folk nongs.
The carol "God Itextj Ye Merry,

of the Seventeenth century, although

sterling hymn tune and will probably
last as long as the rersei wltb which

ful musical effect at the close of this

they were taken from the liturgy of

That Word "Hysteria."
There Is a lot of scientific truth per

The classic origin of the word Is the

The sexual or mother nature of wom

origin of the laughter, the fears and
the contradictory conduct Implied by

ing to a report made by Dr. A. W.
Scheenleber of the medical department
of the Standard Oil company to the
Eugenic Research association there Is
a racial difference In resistance to den
tal decay as shown by an examination
of 2.7.18 men of various nationalities.
The gleumlnj; whiteness of the ne
gro's teeth Is not Just contrast with his
black skin, these figures show, as-the
greatest proportion of perfect teeth
was found among the Afro-Americans.
Polish and Austrian Jews showed tiie
next highest percentage of excellent
teeth, while English, German.' Dan
ish, Norwegian and Swedish subjects
showed very feeble resistance to decay.
The Irish had the worst teeth of all.
Why Hoover Sent Corn to Russia.
Someone asked Mr. Hoover recently
why he sent corn to Russia Instead of
wheat. "Because," replied the secre
tary of commerce without a momtiiit's
hesitation, "for one dollar I can buy so
many calories" carrying it out to the
third decimal place "In corn, and only
so many" again to the third decimal
places "in wheat, f get about twice as
many In corn as In wheat." From
"Behind the Mirrors."
