Espec- ially as to what they "are going to do in regard to tomatoes, beans, and other truck crops. The govern- ment lias already made your cot- ton and corn plans for you. But if you are going to try anything for yourself it is up to you to get busy. Time is short in which to plan hot beds and cold frames and prepare the land for tomatoes, beans and other early truck crops. The At- lanta canning plant can take care of one thousand acres of tomatoes, and five hundred acres of beans, and it is up to the farmers to take advantage of the plant and make something extra for a rainy day. This is an extra opportunity for the tomato grower besides shipping the green wraps, he can sell his ripes to the canning plant, thereby selling the entire crop. ...

The style of Ford cars is but evidence of the Ford policy to build the better way. Streamlines flow from end to end, side to side. The cars are low on the ground. This increases the impression of fleetness and grace. But more important, it increases safety! You are more secure, in these cars with the lower center of gra...
