had been in charge of—n dd

, kept his mineb occupied day and
night, even In hin dreams, Naturally ’
after soijie 60 months,of constant
application to one subject, he hr.d
got to the point where he neither
Tived, ate nsr slept like'a normal
man. In Tact, he had little appe
tite, slept fitfully, and hardly knew
whether or not* he was living. His
disposition, too, suffered, and
through it, his wife and children.
He was fast becoming like the
man whom lie-had replaced the
job, and who when he retired was
known by his neighbors as "that I
Old Crank Patterson.”
One day he saw “that Old Crank j
Patterson’* and there came to him
this thought, “There unless the
Grace of God intervenes, am I.”
BuUhe saw no solution to the solv
ing of his problem, As he came
rear the old man, he stopped and !
talked to him, finding him, as al- j
ways, interested to know how \
George was getting along in the I
job. George found' that this' worn
out older man was'proud of-one
thing: had retired, he
hadn't h.d a vacation for twenty
years! , f

George left him with the deter
mination that he v\;as not going -to
be like his predecessor. He
chanced to pass a flower shop. He
had always I ked flowers, so he
stopped and gazed at the potted
plants, 'decided he’d buy one. He
also bought some plant food.
Every night he looked at that
plant, feeding and watering it at
regular intervals. -Spring came
shortly and he put his plant out
|of doors and gave it some neigh

mer was over George had a, love
ly flower garden. And for some
reason,,.he was sleeping’better,
his appetite' had returned and his
wife was taking a most pleasur
| able interest in his flowers.
Then, all of a sudden, he realized

Not only that, his business
acumen had increased because of j

A CHEVY ■ j
AND A RECORD!
A meaningful achievement
in automobile performance
Most automobile per form anee records ate pretty] ———v
difficult to relate to the kind of day-in, day-out [
driving most of us do. Running at safe and legal }
■ speeds, a 57 Chevrolet recently chalked up an *
important new coast-to-coast record on the road. J
And the ivay it set this record is even more im
portant than the record itself! «
A new ’57 Chevrolet recently proved it has the quali
ties most people look for in a car—and proved it on
the roads you travel. It set a new record of less than
57 hours for the run from New York to Los Angeles
(certified by NASCAR). It was a strictly stock, VB
- Chevy. It was driven by two young ladies.
When you consider that all the driving was done
by 98-pound Betty Skelton and her friend Caroline*
Russ, the true significance of this record run becomes 1
apparent. It’s a tribute to Chevrolet’s great-hearted*
V 8 engine and solid road-worthiness that it could*
travel day and night for 2,913 miles at safe and legal:
. - speeds—and better the*
existing record for the tripl
by more than three hours.'
yJtOLETM And when a pair of youngj
ladies step into a car and:
drive it round the clock to a'
new transcontinental record,*
you know that car is easy to
drive. Come try a Chevy. 1
