With its frisky “Turbo-Fire VS,”
this Chevrolet is pure dynamite.
But it’s beautifully mannered,
too—quiet, instantly obedient to
your slightest signal!
Nudge the accelerator and you’re
aware of the split-second chain re-
action of your toe to the “Turbo-
Fire”! There’s your dynamite—with
horsepower ranging up to a high of
205. The car is built for its power,
too—with a low, low center of
gravity, well distributed weight and
wide-apart rear springs. There’s
your stability, and safer handling!
All doors have safety latches—and
instrument panel padding and seat
belts are available at extra cost.
Directional signals are standard.
Come in and try a new Chevrolet!
THE HOT ONES EVEN HOTTER
neighboring cities and nearby
industry. Young citizens in
whom the people of West have
invested a lot of money in their
education and moral welfare, j
Why do they leave? Well,
some get college degrees or
learn trades in specialities and
have to go where their new
skill is being used. But mostly
people leave West not because
they can’t find work in their
fields in West, but simply be-
cause they get more money per
hour somewhere else.
This is not nearly always the
smart thing to do. For almost
always, higher wages mean
higher expenses. Not only hous-
ing and food costs, but trans-
portation, utilities, insurance,
taxes and other necessities may
aiso skyrocket. Not only will it
take the worker 15 to 30 min-
utes to get to and from his job,
which takes a lot of gasoline,
but he will be be unable to run
home for lunch. He will be ex-
pected to concentrate on his job
all day, every day, a la robot;
be he an electrician in an air-
craft plant in Fort Worth or an
accountant in Waco. In short,
in a few years he will stop and
question just how wise a de-
cision he had made when he
Oh, he may be doing okay.
He'll look out the door of his
five-room frame house, that
really needs an extra bedroom
by now for the latest addition,
and see his nearly new ’55 Pon-
tiac, two-toned, with hydra-
matic. He could have had a
three-toned ’56 Chevie with
powerglide if he had stayed in
West. His wife is at the neigh-
borhood supermarket, bright
and new with EVERYTHING,
but oh! what she wouldn’t give
for some country sausage or
some of Nemecck’s wieners, and
not have to buy this pre-wrap-
ped, pre-frozen, pre-picked over
meat. And why don’t they de-
