administered through the WPA,
differing from other work that is
sponsored and administered sole -
ly by WPA.
In the work of the Tax Survey,
records from 192G through 1935
' are examined and compiled into
a complete permanent record, a
copy of which is furnished the
county Assessor-Collector. Deed
records of the property are traced

I entered this campaign with

railroad picks up the freight at

DELIVERED IN RUSK
The delivered price of this or any
other new Ford V-8 includes all the
following at no extra cost:
• V-8 Engine, 85 horsepower
• Welded Steel Body
• Safety Glass throughout
• Shockless steering
• Silent helical gears in all speeds
• 17 Plate Battery, 96 ampere
• 112-Inch wheelbase
• Choice of 3 colors
(6 on de luxe cars)
WHEN you get a "trade-in" offer for
your present car, ask for the full deliv-
ered price of the new car you are considering.
Subtract the trade-in allowance from this.
The resulting difference, including financ-
ing charges, is the sum you will actually
pay for your new car. And most of the
time, regardless of comparative allowances
—you will find that it costs you less to own
the Ford V-8.
This is because cars with FOB prices that
are very much the same frequently have
widely different delivered prices—and the
difference between FOB and delivered prices
of a Ford is almost always smallest.
Remember, too, that every Ford V-8 gives
Jou every one of the features listed at the
eft—without a cent of extra cost.
