an especially significant manner the
reason for the public's attitude toward

that the Cadillac had the honor of

"In a letter to county societies It was
urged that one or more active members
be appointed In each community, who In
co-operation with Influential citizens shall
plan an educational campaign best suited
to the locality. It Is -aimed to explain
to the laity the causes ot disease as far
as possible and methods of prevention
and to show how valuable an advisor an

Individual and the family. How Illness
may be prevented and life prolonged.
How by watchfulness over the child 'be

growth and development may be main

best popular priced car built. Extra large and
specially heat treated chrome nickel transmis

And like every other R-C-H unit, the rear axle is
of the very latest and most Dractical design. It gives
maximum power with the minimum waste because it
has the minimum friction. There is no rumbling ;
no humming; no balking in its co-operation with the
other power units.
So it is with the R-G-H from the motor through
the transmission to the rear axle. It is the most
thoroughly built car in the world.

The long wheel base adds more comfort in easy
