The solution of this problem was foiled in an Ordinary rubber bulb similar to that of an atomizer. Over the end of this bulb was fitted an Iolite hearing. By placing the Finger Over the open end of the bearing so that air from the bulb cannot escape and then squeezing the bulb. The de Soto Prospect can see for himself How lubricant is forced out through the pores of the Metal to provide a perfect Cushion against friction.

Men and women who never have been Able to drive cars because of the total or partial disability of one led now will be be virtually a capable behind the wheel As those who Are physically perfect. It All came about through an Accident sustained by president David a. Wallace of the Chrysler sales division. Chrysler Corpora-l0 Hon last Winter when a broken left leg compelled him to Wear a cast for Many weeks. Always an extremely virile Aud Active Man. I or. Wallace was t satisfied to have a chauffeur drive him Dur i ing the period that hts left leg i was incapacitated. Instead he began to Ponder the problem of building a car that could be operated by a person who had the use of Only one leg. The solution proved simple enough. Thanks to Chrysler fluid drive. Or. Wallace had the clutch pedal removed entirely from a Chrysler new yorker and made the clutch and Bruke integral so far a their initial operation was concerned. By merely pressing on the pedal ordinarily used for the Blake the clutch is released and the Brake then operates in the usual manner. The right foot thus does All the work operating both the dutch and Brake from tile pedal and the throttle from the other. With Chrysler fluid drive making it possible to drive in High gear under All noun Al conditions the a one legged car is just As easy to handle As any other. When the Driver desires to slow Down or Stop. Lie merely presses the combined Brake dutch pedal to whatever extent is necessary. If he wants to Stop completely he either can hold the Brake Clear Down or else apply the hand i Brake the car Bein allowed to remain in High gear meanwhile i the Hest possible evidence of our belief that newspaper advertising is our most effective new business and Public relations Aid. A a even during depression years when we saved on Many other items we novel Cut the Basic newspaper schedule. ,.we feel that much of the credit for 193 9 gains belongs to our newspaper a William h.

At the same time the technical division has been bending every Effort to make its own requirements practical and effective or. A a Emilya asserted. As its first step in carrying out the direction of the National housing act to encourage improvement in housing standards and conditions and to protect the Khan mortgage Ina Ranee funds the technical division prepared its Basic a property standards and a minimum construction require ments for new dwellings to be applied to All dwellings accepted by Hie Cha for mortgage insurance or.

At the Start of 19 40 the techno because of the cushioning effect of fluid drive. When it is desired to Start or to increase Speed the foot is removed from the pedal and applied to the throttle. Thus it happens that even a Man who is unable to walk without crutches is just As competent As anyone once he gets into the Driver s seat of his car. The extreme flexibility of the front seat adjustment in a Chrysler enables the seat to be placed far enough Back to accommodate a Driver who cannot Bend one of his legs so a permanent stiffness of the limb is no drawback to handling the Cai.

Being vice president and dirty tor of Sale of the Dodge division of Chrysler corporation m ight be supposed to be interested chiefly in the merchandising of new cars a to my notion motoring owes a debt of gratitude to the Vised car a said or. Akers a for with out the used car the United states j would never have achieved its commanding position As the most j completely motorized country in the world. We understand this More fully when we learn that about ten millions of our thirty minion motorists buy new automobiles while the remaining Twenty million Purchase their transportation in the form of used cars. A though it is customary to envision automobile development on the basis of new tars a or. Aker continues a it is altogether proper for sales executives and dealers to regard the used car As a triple boons for the Motorist who benefits by economical and at the same time modern transportation for the dealers who new car sales Are seeded tip by the trading in a recently new car a and for the automobile Industry and its armies of workers whose new car output is kept at High Levels by the fact that used cars find a continuous Market. A it is my experience that the average tired tar buyer is As particular a customer As his new car buying or. Akers explained. A the is Apt to be even More so in the attention he gives to Tong life dependability Economy and resale or Trade in value of the used car he selects. A we in the automobile business often speak with Pride of our repeat customers who Purchase our ears time and again. Experienced dealers Are aware that a quite similar loyalty motivates the buying action of Many of their used car customers. To me this leaning of buyers toward used cars with which they have become familiar is a fatter of great value not Only to us who merchandise the products of our factories but also to the designing and engineering staffs whose cars thus become rolling testimonials of the skill Aud thoroughness with which they Horace g.
