Fast records don't mean much
in tournaments where darkhorses |
ometimes rear up on their hind \
?egs and kick the daylights out of j
'he favorites. However, in the girls' j
division, somebody is going to have |
to play a lot of basketball to keep
he Waynesville Mountainettes and
he Bethel Belles out of the finals
The Mountainettes have beaten I
'he Belles twice this season. In
'he first game, the Waynesville
girls held a sizable margin j
'hroughout most of the game, but
won finally bv onlv eight points at
49-41. In the second tilt, WTHS
was pushed all the way before fin
ally coming out on top, 54-50.
In the boys' -division it appears
that Bethel will be one of the fin-1
alists. The other one probably will j
come from the winner of the Can- i
ton-W'aynesville game?if Canton j
gets hv Clyde on Tuesday.

Black Bears holding one win in'
their two-game series this season. |

Fords New Ball-Joint Suspension gives you the
Newest Ride on the Road!
This revolutionary new Ford front suspension
soaks up road shock before it reaches you!
Makes all riding and handling easier!
Seals out dirt. You can forget road splash because dirt and water can't
get into the ball joints in Ford's new front suspension. Each of the four joints
is effectively sealed by a unique rubber-and-metal shield. This means that con
tact surfaces of each ball and socket remain clean?wear is kept to a minimum.
The "oi.d" hoads won't seem the same with Ford's new Ball-Joint
Suspension "paving" the wuy for you. You'll enjoy a softer, more level ride
because Ford's new system allows greater shock absorbing movement
of the front wheels. Handling is fur better, too, not only on turns
but on the straightaways as well. That's because conventional kingpins ? V
have been replaeed by simple, sealed ball joints that won't stir* ) t C I ? f
Sr bifid. No other ear in Ford's field can equal this modem ride? ? ? 1
because no other has Ball-Joint Suspension.
Agile new performance, too, fs yours in a '54 Ford. Whether you
choose Ford's new 130-h.p. Y-bloek V-8 or 115-h.p. l-block Six
you get the quick response and smooth, quiet operation of a modern
overhead valve, low-friction deep-block engine. And no matter which
of F oril's 28 new models you choose you enjoy recognized
style leadership-with clean, modern lines . .. sparkling new colors ...
and harmonizing upholstery fabrics and trim.

Ke<p> that new-car feel. You 11 enjoy Ford's new-car feel much longer
? because ball joints are spring-loaded to compensate automatically for any
wear. Front wheels hold alignment fur longer than with conventional systems.
Ball joints Can't stick or bind. Steering remains consistently easy.
Eliminate* 12 wear points. Ford'i Rail-Joint Front Suspension elimi
nates 12 of lfl points of wear found fn conventional systems. Rubber-btisfied
supports at inner ends of suspension control amis not only reduce the number
of wear points but also insulate chassis from road tioises.
