A great many otlierH say they have heard reports of Pontiac's per-
formance, its alertness in traflic, its smooth luxurious ride and the
wonderful convenience of GM Hydra -Malic Drive.*
Still others tell us what they have heard about Pontiac's economy.
Ami well they might, for Pontiac is sensibly priced, just above the
twv lowest. And it is so thoroughly dependable that it will give
years of pleasure and suj>erl> performance with only minimum
servicing. Come iu soon and get the whole Pontiac story.

Seated all around us was movie
stars. We could hardly see the show
for watching the photographers to
see whom they would spot next.
We saw Dorothy Lamour, Mike O'-
Shea, Rod Cummings, Frank Mor-
gan, Allan Ladd, Linda Darnell and
From LA. we flew in a large
four motored United Air Liner with
stop over in San Francisco. The
plane made 370 miles per hour,
passed Ml. Shasta on a level with
her snow covered peak, landing in
Seattle's large new air port.
The seaport at Seattle was very
much alive with the loading of
freight and passengers on the "Ba-
ranoff" bound for Alaska.
After leaving and getting settled
on the Baranoff for a six day
cruise, we sailed smoothly along
the inside passage enjoying a grand
feast of beauty. Sometimes the
mountains, seas and sky were all
shades of blue; again all green from
lime sherbert to deepest jade; then
again all were shimmering silver.
The coastline was broken often
by a swift mountain stream and
waterfalls coming straight down the
mountains. The snow covered
mountain from the background
pierced occasionally with light
houses and fish canneries. We saw
many glaciers and whales are so
common that we didn't bother to
look unless they were very close to
Twenty-five or thirty Fillipinos
got off our ship at Georges Inlet,
near Ketchikan, to work in the fish
cannery of Libby, McNeil and Lib-
by. The company furnishes good
quarters and good food for both
white men and Fillipinos. They
live in seperate houses and each
has it own cooks. They have elec-
tricity and cold storage.
Fish are not so plentiful as they
were. The big companies put fish
traps into the mouths of the rivers
and each trap sometimes nets ten
tons of fish. The trap itself costs
around $10,000. A guard is kept on
watch at all times and even then
the traps are robbed sometimes or i
the guard bribed.
Ketchikan is a small fishing vil-
lage built out over the water. The
coast line is so narrow that the
streets are built of boards on pil-
ling. The town being on the moun-
tain side, the second row of houses
really has a street high over the
Several people on board stopped
here. A young Presbyterian minister
with his wife and two babies is tak-
ing up a pastorate on a small is-
land near Ketchikan. He must stay
five years with the Indians. He
lias brought a new gun along to do
a little hunting as well as teaching.
Another family was moving to
Ketchikan for three years to help
build la pulp mill. The boy is Ed's
age and they enjoyed sharing the
