MODEL T FORD
a good car
TlIE Model T Ford led the motor industry for twenty
years because of its sturdy worth, reliability and econ
omy. Those same reasons continue to make it a good car.
As a matter of fact, nearly one-fourth of all the auto
mobiles in use today are Model T Fords. Millions of
them can be driven two, three and even five more years
with reasonable care and proper replacements. Figures
show that the average life is seven years.
Don't sacrifice your Model T, therefore, but take it to
the Ford dealer and have him estimate on the cost of
putting it in Al shape. A very small expenditure may be
the means of giving you thousands of miles of additional
For a labor charge of $ 20 to $25 you can have your
motor and transmission completely overhauled. This
price includes new bearings, reboring cylinders and any
other work necessary. Parts are extra.
Valves can be ground and carbon removed for ,$3 to
$4. The cost of tightening all main bearings is only $6.
The labor charge for overhauling the front axle is $4.50
to $5 rear axle assembly, $5.75 to $7.
' New universal joint will be installed for a labor charge
of $3. Brake shoes relined for $1.50. Rear spring and
perches rcbushed for $1.75. The cost of overhauling
the starting motor Is $3. A labor charge of approxi
matcly $2.50 covers the overhauling of the generator.
It will pay you, therefore, to see your Ford dealer
and have him put your Model T in good running order.
By doing so .you will protect and maintain the invest
ment you have in your car and get months and years of
reliable transportation at a very low cost per mile.

Spring is a most difficult season
for the skin, for at this time the
general system is undergoing subtle
changes which are quite naturally
reflected in the complexion.

Even women whose complexions
are never affected in this way at
any other time of the year may
show these disturbances in the
spring. And those who suffer all
year round from acne, that distress
ing, humiliating affection common
ly known as pimples, find It aggra

the system has always been acknow

in rank will receive $100, $75 and

the game commission has had un

would stimulate greater activity

save the lives of many deer and It
was decided that cash prizes be

There was an increase of more
than $15,000 in license fees received
by the state game commission dur
ing the year ending December 31,
1928, according to figures Just com
piled. License fees for the year
ending with the last day of 1927 to
taled $370,390.20 as compared with
$385,459.95 for the year 1928. Non
resident anglers licenses Bhowed an
increase of from 4,613 to 5,368 and
there was an increase of from 702
to 849 in non-resident hunters' li
censes issued. These last increases
are important to the state as it has
been estimated that the non-resident
angler or hunter will spend
approximately $50 while making
use of our fields and streams. While
the commission gained $15,000 in
license fees, non-residents are esti
mated as having expended more
than $265,000 in Oregon.

the advantage of other similar
places operated by the commission
in that the water used by it, due to
feeding from a warm spring keeps
a year around temperature of 55
degrees. This Is regarded as the
ideal temperature for fish culture.
Fish raised there have a year round
growth, while those hatched and
cultured In water of changing tem
peratures grow only during the time
when the thermometer is forced up
by warm weather. Fish that were
hatched less than a year ago have
grown to from four to six inches
in length at the Oak Springs hatchery.
