In Chevrolet you get more for your
money than in any other car built.
You get every essential improvement
developed by automotive engineers
during the last twelve years of
You get the greater flexibility of
Chevrolet’s 3-speed transmission —
the greater power and smoothness
of Chevrolet’s valve-in-head motor
—the easier, safer handling of Chev­
rolet’s semi-reversible steering gear
—the greater comfort of semi-ellip­
tic springs.
Buy no other low-priced car until
you have compared it with Chev­
rolet. Check point for point—fea­
ture for feature. Know what you
are actually getting for the price you
pay. Let us give you a demonstration.
Statistics have proven that only
one-half of one per cent of the
speeches made in Congress are lis­
tened to. A great many Congress­
men speak IN , but not T O , Con-

¡rds back home to show “W hat
hey told ’em up there in W ashing-

For instance: “Congressman Post
