THE MADISON VILLE METEOR. THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 29, 1928. The new Ford has a very simple and effective lubrication system THE lubrication system for the engine of the new Ford Is as simple in principle as water running down-hill. A gear pump in the hot- torn of the oil pan raises the oil to the valve chamber reservoir. From here it flows on to the main crank- shaft bearings and the front camshaft bearing. Overflow oil drops into the oil pan tray and runs into troughs through which the connect- ing rods pass. As the ends of these rods strike the oil they scoop up a supply for the connecting pod bearing. At the same time they set up a fine spray that lubricates the pistons and other moving parts. From the tray the nil tuna into the bottom of the pan, and is again drawn up through a fine mesh screen and pumped to the valve chamber. This system is so effective that the five-quart contents of the oil pan pass through the pump twice in every mile when you are traveling at only 30 miles an ho...

You are saving for yourself and put- ting your money in circulation. And since circulation is kept going by the banks, it means that every dollar you save will at the same time keep up its perpetual and constant power of buying over and over again and again. A dollar will buy you a dollar's worth ' cf life's necessities and then buy an- other dollar's worth for the man you paid it to, and thus it keeps on its ceaseless blessings provided it is kept in circulation.
