THE MILL CITY ENTERPRISE
(Nu. 2 of a series)
How Can a Person not versed
in the tubjecl tell a good road from
a bad one?
It Isn't As Easy as you might
think. A road may look very strong,
yet be weak. It may look inadequate,
yet be competent to handle all the
traffic that will use it.
There Are Three things necessary
to construct a good road, students at a
famous engineering college are told
by one of its wisest professors. Those
three things are: One. a good founda
tion; two, a good foundation; and
three, a good foundation!
You Can Prove for yourself that
a road is no better than its foundation.
Take an ordinary sponge rubber mat,
place a sheet of paper on it; then
stand on the paper. What do you get’
A broken, cracked or indented sheet
of paper. Then place an identical
paper on a firm floor and stand on it
The result is—undamaged paper.

No matter the size or type of truck you need—what better proof
could there be that a Chevrolet truck is your best buy!
Moti CHivioirr raucas
THAN ANY OTHt» MAKII
Recently published official registration
figures for the last full year show that truck
users in every single State bought more
Chevrolets than any other make!
It is difficult to imagine more convincing
proof of Chevrolet's superiority, for such
clear-cut and overwhelming preference can
lead to but one conclusion:
Chevrolet trucks must be better, must
enjoy solid advantages over other trucks.
Such preference must rest on a firm foun
dation of good, sound value. And, of
course, it does—as owners of Chevrolet
trucks can testify.
So before you buy any truck, see how
much more Chevrolet trucks offer you.
Stop in and see US soon. Continuation of
standard equipment and trim illustrated is depend-
ent on a\adabiiity of material.
