Daddy, get me a Baker.'
Won't any electric do you?
Any is better than none, but I have reasons for
preferring a Baker.
, What are they?
You know to a woman most electrics look alike,
are upholstered alike, are equally comfort"
able. But they do not run alike. ,
How do yoa know? ' ' .
I've looked it up. There is a wide difference
between them in the number of miles they
can travel on a charge in the cost of running
v. them. The Baker has the mileage record;
has always had it
And it cottt lets to operate? x
Exactly. You see, a Baker hasn't a' lot of dead
weight to lug around. It weighs less than any
other equal powered car. And people tell me
that its high speed motor is vastly more effi
cient than the more cumbersome type of slow
motors used in other cars. Less battery
equipment is required ; and battery equip
ment costs money, you know.
Well, well, what a head yoa have, daughter.
' . You've got more tense than the average man.
It's only common sense, Daddy, to get the most
efficient machine for your money, and save
expense in running it
