In a it is a Cardinal principle of All racing never to urge a Man who is reluctant to compete and Francis resignation was duly accepted. So in the Tiedman trophy event id a which the pm of �?o30�?� led All its american rivals Home at a Speed of 65 28 for the 190 3 Miles a substitute Rode in Francis place while Francis cheered valiantly from the pm of pit and stood ready with a gasoline can which was never needed.

Remember that cars for which you must pay More Are a a assembled products that while their makers May Prate loudly about Quality they done to know what material actually goes into their cars but must take the word of others who Are making the parts for profit and who have no interest in the ultimate user of the car. And finally remember the record of the e. M. F. Company never repudiated a guarantee or a Promise written verbal or otherwise.
