DAVIS "CHAMPION" CHICKS
Net $80.00 a Box
Why ?—Because 10 years in the Egg Laying Contests have proven
their ability to lay. Hundreds of our customers tell us that their
Davis Hens have averaged 17 to 20 dozen eggs per hen per year.
They will do it for you too.
In the end our chicks r.re the cheapest chicks you can possibly
buiy because it costs no more to feed an Egg-Bred chick than a
common chick of unknown egg laying ability. Buy Davis Chicks
this year and make twice as muc), money this fall.

MM AS J VST BEEN BUILT
It has never occurred before in auto-
mobile history that 25 million cars of
one make, bearing one name, have
been manufactured under one man-
agement. The 25,(100,000th Ford car
rolled off the Ford Rouge Plant pro-
duction line on January 18, 1937.
25 million ears since 1903 . . . more
th an one-third of all the cars ever
built . . . enough cars to transport the
entire population of the United States.
The figures represent a remarkable
contribution to the social welfare, the
industrial stability and the general
progress of our country.
People respect Ford efficiency. They
know Ford uses fine materials, the
best workmanship at good wages, the
most exact precision measurements.
They know these things are passed
along to purchasers in the form of
extra value. Naturally, they like to
do business with such a company.
That is the only reason it has been
required to produce 25 million cars.
Naturally, too, they expect
more of a Ford car, more this
year than last year — more
each year than the year before. They
have every right to. The experience
gained in buildiug 25,000,000 cars en-
ables Ford to produce today a really
superb motor car at a really low price
— with the Beauty, Comfort, Safety
and Performance of much more ex-
The 1937 Ford V-8 combines ad-
vanced design, all-steel const ruction,
extra body room, and brilliant brakes
with a choice of two V-type 8-cylin-
der engines — the most modern type
of power-plant on land, sea, or in
The 85-horsepower engine provides
top performance with unusually good
economy for its high power.
The 60-horsepower engine give*
good performance with the greatest
gasoline mileage ever built into a Ford
ear—and wears the lowest Ford price
tag in years.
People expect more of a Ford car
because it's a Ford — and they get
more, for the same reason. It
is undeniably the quality car
in the low-price field.
