Rubinoff, the satisfaction of a life-

▼ definite a symbol of progress as the
public acclaim he receives or the
dazzling offers-from theatrical pro-
ducers and radio sponsors.
Rubinoff took his first lesson on
the violin at the age of five at his
birthplace in Russia. The local
music master, recognizing his talent,
offered to give him free lessons. His
first violin cost, in Russian rubles,
the equivalent of $1.75.

There are more Ford car* in use today than any
other make. And there are more Ford V-8» than
any other 8-cyUnder car.
The 1939 Ford V-8 represent* the broadest ex-
perience in building car* any manufacturer ever had.
You will find values in it far beyond what any other
maker can put into a car at the low Ford price.
Ford performance, traditional for a generation,
has reached new heights in the 1939 V-8.
And now Ford style leadership is equally outstand-
ing. “The smartest cars on the road” is the way own-
er* describe their new Ford*. Smartest in action. Smart-
est in appearance. Leaders, a* they deserve to be.
