Under our government and in our
society, public opinion hq,s become
very decisive. This being true, noth-
ing that counts in the formation of
public opinion can he a matter of in-
difference to us.
The world never stood in greater
need of facts. We can not fight the
waves of hatred and untruth that en-
velop us by merely stating opinions.
We can do it by giving the facts. The
Yaets may be against us, but we do
not deserve to win if they are.

The doors are wide and open forward
making -access and exit easy. They
are heavily framed for/rigidity and
strength. The compartment at the
rear has been enlarged to afford in-
creased carrying capacity. .The gaso-
line tank is under the seat with dir
vided cushions to afford easy filling
of the tank from the right side, mak-
ing it unnecessary for the driver to
leave his seat. Ventilator in the cOwl
and a visor over the winshield add
much to the attractiveness, of the car.
A new rear fender of more sturdy
character also is a feature.
Interior fittings are of more choice
material and the arrangement of the
deeply cushioned seat has been effect-
ed so that at the rear there is a small
recess shelf for carrying parcels.
The rear vision window is much larger
and oblong in shape. 'Door windows
have been equipped with revolving
type window regulators and door
locks are provided. Side windows are
equipped with the lever type window

This has been brought about by the
installation of an entirely hew cowl
with graceful sweep from the dash
blending into the larger hood and radi-
ator. The change also affords an in-
crease in leg room for occupants of
the front seat.
In the open types, the Touring Car
and Runabout, the cowl has been en-
larged and flows in a graceful curve
to the higher hood.
The result brings a most pleasing
effect to the exterior appearance of
both types. The improvement in the
Touring Car which came when the
one man top and slanting windshield
were introduced, is enchanced by the

lower and more attractive than eve:-
The effect on the Roadster is likewise
most appealing, giving it more rugged

a big fuss but if a doctor makes one
there is a funeral, cut flowers and

An easy way to extinguish burning

net covers the burning surface, the
iron wires conduct the heat so rapid-
