Listen now garden: A certain man made tmto himself a garden and set therein the fairest flowers and the sweetest fruits and dlllstly cultivated it. When there- the time came to gather the said to himself. Behold come in the night and mY choicest fruits. I will me a hedge over against it and it. And he did even so: Now the time of the first fruits was hand he came to the garden and upon the vines and the trees herbs of the ground and no fruit tereon. And he cried and said, I am undone, for the which I have bullded hath my garden; it" hath so tall with the richness of the that it hath sheltered this my from the warmth of he sun from the rains in their season all that I have planted is wither- dried up, Take heed there- that ye be not as that garden and utterly.

Older than that is the Word: Bles- sed are ye when men shall hate you and when they shall separate you [from their company and shall re- preach you--Woe unto ye when al: men shall speak well of you. for so did their fathers to the false prophets."

Long before your General Motors car is built, specimen models are sent to theProv- ing Ground. Thi, fleet is tested in actual use. It has to meet every bad driving con- dition, from. heart-breaking hills to slam- bang bumps. But that isn't all. Other cars of American, aBd European manufacture are bought and put through the same tests, so that GeneralMotors always knows how its products compare with others. The tests involve speed, power, endurance, braking, rid- ingcomfort, hand ling ease; fuel, oil and tire economy; body strength--every phase of car constructionand performance. When the specimen cars are finally able to meet every test, they are sent back to the factory. The car you buy is made exactly like them. The next time you examine,a General Motors car in your dealer's showroom, think of those xz68 acres. They would make a big farm.

Long before your General Motors car is built, specimen models are sent to theProv- ing Ground. Thi, fleet is tested in actual use. It has to meet every bad driving con- dition, from. heart-breaking hills to slam- bang bumps. But that isn't all. Other cars of American, aBd European manufacture are bought and put through the same tests, so that GeneralMotors always knows how its products compare with others. The tests involve speed, power, endurance, braking, rid- ingcomfort, hand ling ease; fuel, oil and tire economy; body strength--every phase of car constructionand performance. When the specimen cars are finally able to meet every test, they are sent back to the factory. The car you buy is made exactly like them. The next time you examine,a General Motors car in your dealer's showroom, think of those xz68 acres. They would make a big farm. But they make a better promise of proved car value. @ @ "A car for every purse and purpose " CHEVROLET.7 models. $$zS--$7z  . A six in the price range ofthc four.
