Each long hill renews your satisfac- tion in its power, and on each new run its riding comfort is revealed in many ways. Chevrolet convenience and complete- ness of equipment become more and more indispensable in every day use. But the most gratifying revelation comes when you divide its total up- keep cost by the number.of miles run. OTTAWA, Aug. Squadron Lead' lUymond Collishaw, D.S.O., D.F.

Two years ago Roy M, Coe and family moved here from Fort Scottr Kan., bringing, with them the family pet, Bud, a.colHe dog. Last November Bud disappeared from home and, although Coe advertised and offered a substan- tial reward for the dog's return, no trace of him was found. The other day, Mr. Coe received a, message from his brother-in-law an employee of the Fort. Scott Gas Co., reading: "Bud, somewhat tired, walked into the gas plant and lay down." The dog appar- ently, had consumed about eight month? making the trip of approx- imately 900 miles.
