ONLY 2 per cent of the avarage
family income is spent for electric
service. Isn’t this percentage
rather small when we think of
the comfort, convenience and
pleasure which electric service
brings to the home?
A few of our politicians like to
make political capital by agitating
for lower electric rates. Would
they not be doing the people a
greater service if they investigat
ed the cost of some larger items
in the family budget?
Remember the rummage sale at the
Western hotel, November 2nd and 3rd.

Study as thoroughly as you please the entire

finally conclude that in all the world there is
no other low-priced six like Pontiac ... For of
all the sixes available at as little as $745 only
Pontiac offers bodies by Fisher—a 186-cubic
inch engine—the cross-flow radiator—a fuel
pump—the famous G-M-R cylinder head. Only
Pontiac offers such stamina and long life. And
only Pontiac offers special factory equipment
including six wire wheels and tires with the
two spares cradled in fender wells at slight
additional cost... With all these exclusive fea
tures Pontiac Six has established itself as fore
most among all low-priced sixes. And with
good reason, for where else can you find such
advantages for as little as $745?
