"Tha department of labor Ma. In

qualified for their delicate task. Many
of tha commlsslonsrs have been draft'
ed from business professional and In-
dustrial Ufa. Som have been maa-
ajrera of large corporations some hav
bean government officials and aom
hav been leaders tn organised labor.'
"The conciliation work of. th de-
partment has gradually beoom more
and more a racosmlsed factor In Amer
ica's industrial life as experience has
demonstrated th effectiveness of Its
mediation In avoiding strike or m
bringing a quick settlement of dis-
putes where work has already been
suspended. Labor baa discovered that
tt has a standing racognlsed by the
government whenever Its demsnds are
based on Industrial and constitutional
right. Employers on th ether hand
hav found that th department will
protect them from unjust and nnrea
sonabie exactions. Tn almost all the
cases where the conciliation service
has acted there has been found a fne
spirit of oooprttoa sv th part of

A Vitally Important Suggestion
Concerning the Purchase of
For many months past the local demand for Durant Motor Cars has exceeded the supply.
Houston in common with the rest of -America has come to definitely appreciate the out-
standing supremacy of Durant Automobiles.
This universal demand neceltated our-accepting orders for delivery at the earliest but
frequently distant dates. i .
We regretted the condition ljut.it was totally beyond our control or remedy. .
During- the months of October and November however duetto extreme weather in cer-
tain sections of the North and West we were most fortunate in being able to procure prac-
tically a double allotment of Durant Cars for our clientele.
The result has been a vast improvement in delivery conditions. Our waiting list has
been sizeably reduced until now we are practically "caught up" with delivery demand.
We are now negotiating for an increase of our DECEMBER ALLOTMENT using
every possible -persuasion to obtain even larger shipments this month than during the two
previous months. We anticipate success in this endeavor. This prompts us to predict that
on ORDERS PLACED IMMEDIATELY we shall be able to make a majority of the deliv-
eries within the MONTH OF DECEMBER probably most of them before Christmas Day.
It is an unusual opportunity to get your Durant Car delivered with probably more
promptness than will be possible during any other period in the near future.
.' 'Can you think of anything that will -cause greater family-happiness than to find a
Durant Car at We floor on Christmas morn?
' We repeat our suggestion place your order IMMEDIATELY. First come must nec
essarily be first served.
