Already five hundred boys have enlisted in this province and are anxious to get on the land to do their hit.. Everything possible is being done by those in charge of the movement to safeguard the boys both from a moral and physical standpoint. Satisfactory arrangements will be made with respect to the wages you shall receive and effort is being made so that you will only be placed where living conditions are favorable.

AND THIRTEENTH ST. 8. 2 Deliveries by*Ford One-Ton Truck THE commercial car is looked upon today as a necessity by progressive business firms who have hauling and delivering problems to consider. Wholesale or retail merchants who must deliver quantities of merchandise have found the horse-drawn delivery to be too slow, expensive, and entirely inadequate.  The Ford truck, with a'single driver, will do more work and cover more ground than two teams and two drivers, for it travels in half the time. This truck will reduce your hauling fcosts. It eliminates one driver's salary and the care which horses always require. It will make your delivery service more efficirat. It will widen your area of distribution. It will be constantly ready for work-day or night. It will show a profit on your investment. There has been a popular demand for a Ford truck la3 is shown by the many uses, for commercial purposes, to which our standard chassis has been put. Now, after most careful designing and exacting tests, we are able to offer the Ford One-Ton truck to meet this demand. The Ford truck is supplied as a chassis only. This permits the purchaser to mount any one of the many body styles specially designed for the Ford truck, and already on the market, and ho can select it to meet the individual needs of his business.
