x nere s no law against believing
that “two can live as cheaply as
one.” Neither is there any law against thinking
that eight cylinders can be as economical as six.
Use your own judgment—but if you want the
most economical car, just ask a few people who
own the new Chevrolet Six. Their cost figures
will be a revelation, particularly if you are
struggling to support a few extra cylinders for
the cost of six. You can save with a Chevrolet,
and if you want to find out why, go straight to
your nearest dealer. Look at the car and drive it
yourself. The Chevrolet valve-in-head 6-cylinder
engine works wonders with a gallon of gas, and
it doesn’t burden your pocketbook with extra
cylinders, extra rings and:pistons, or extra valves.

bird continued to circle gracefully
in the warm sunshine.
The child gathered a few clods of
dry dirt; took on in his hand and
