memorial to Father Ramon Meetres as
veil as to the great Padre Jnnlpero
Berra. Product* of different epoch*
Padre Berra and Father Mestres were
both pioneers, the one in mission
founding, the other In rebuilding. Per-
haps it was partly due to the fact that
Father Mestres’ birthplace In Spain
was nearby that of Padre Berra that,
ftndlng himself pastor of San Carlo*
at Monterey, he was Inspired with the
seal that restored the neighboring
Carmel mission from the wreck Into
which neglect had let It fall By this
restoration Father Mestres served the
traditions of his church and the wel-
ters of the state to which he brought
back the reminders of the great age
of romance of early California.
With every earmark of the aristo-
crat Father Mestres walked with hu-
mility In the footsteps of his great
predecessor. Passing on, he leaves a
memory of character and achievement
as his monument—San Francisco

Jimmy’s mother stored all the win-
ter bed clothing In a small shed at
the back of the house. One day, on
returning from downtown, she found
that all the bed clothing had disap-
peared. Without a delay she sought
out Jimmy and asked him where they
"Do you mean those old mattresses
and things T" he asked. “Why, I sold
those old things to the rag man!”
His mother, aghast asked Mm bow
much he had received for than.
“Well,” replied Jimmy with great
satisfaction, “after a lot of arguing I
Anally got him to give see six cents.”

Performance, too, proves Chevrolet
the Great American Value
The big, modem Chevrolet Six is
a fine performer. It maintains
high road speeds at a low, easy-
working engine speed. Its 50-
engine operates with unsur-
passed economy. Six cylinders
enable you to creep along,
accelerate, climb hills, go fast-
arid do H all smoothly, quietly
—with little shifting of gears.
If you have formed your opinion
of Chevrolet quality solely from
the car’s fine appearance-
step into a Chevrolet and drive.
Because performance, too,
points to Chevrolet as the
Great American Value.
