q "Bnick Valve-In-Head" not just "Valre-in-Head"
stands for tbe very highest point
of perfection and efficiency in gasoline
Q It is tbe claim of tbe Bnick Motor Com-
pany for the "Bnick Valve-in-Head motor"
that through tbe untiring efforts of Walter
L. Marr and E. A. DeWaters for nearly
twenty years chief engineers for the Bnick
Motor Company and tbe experience gained
in years of production the "Bnick Valve-in-Head
Motor" has been brought to its pres-
ent state of perfection. a.
9 It is just as unreasonable to suppose that
all "Valve-in-Head Motors" are of equal
quality and efficiency as to suppose that all
houses furniture clothes or shoes are of
eqsal quality merely because they are called
by the same name.
J Hundreds of thousands of times every
litfe detail that forms a part of the "Buick
Valve-in-Head Motor" has been put to the
test in every possible condition of road and
weather and each succeeding year Buick
cars bare profited by the experience gained
from those that have gone before.

Chleago 111.. Dc. S. Government orders
that ail railroads in tbe United States
g.ve food and feed priority over military
supplies rallied the com market today from
weakness which prevailed at the outset.
The initial declines were ascribed to as-
Bomptions that considerable stocks of corn
would be accumulated at Chicago and oth-
er leading western terminals. In this con-
nection the new priority Instructions were
regarded as very significant. Opening
prices which ranged from the same as
yesterday's finish to 4c lower with Janu-
ary at l 0?i to 11.29. and May at
I1.1SH to $1.18 were followed by a ma-
terial upturn nil around

food administration that shipments of
