HARKEY'S LUNCH ROOM
The United States Post Office De-
partment today placed an order with
the Washington Branch of the Ford
Motor Company for 1,500 motor truck
chassis, of which 500 will be 3/4 ton
carrying capacity and 1,000 of l-'/a
tons carry capacity. The purchase of
the motor equipment was the largest
made by a government department
since the war. With this order Ford
sales to the Post Office Department
during recent years reached a total
of 2,900 units.
The purchase marked another step
in the Department's program of build-
ing up its fleet of several thousand
trucks and also to replace some of the
surplus trucks turned over to the Post
Office Department by the Army at
the close of the war.
Deliveries are to start immediately
and continue as rapidly as the bodies
contracted for are ready for installa-
tion. The completed trucks will then
be distributed to some 60 cities
throughout the United States.
The order was placed with the Ford
company after an exhaustive test con-
ducted by the Department with the
cooperation of the Bureau of Stand-
ards. The tests were under the super-
vision of W. A. Jacobs, automotive
engineer of the Bureau of Standards,
and William Wolma of Chicago and
Morris Carrier of Brooklyn, motor
vehicle engineers of the Post Office

People take pride in owning well
advertised articles. Persistent adver-
tising is a proof of quality. No amount
of advertising, however, will make a
success of a poor article.—Good Will.
If some people would apply the same
effort along business lines that they
devote to differences in social, religious
and lodge "leanings," would it not
serve a better purpose for all parties
concerned? Parties accustomed to do-
ing things worth while catalogue the
differences enumerated as "small-
town" stuff.—Tipton (Mo.) Times.
