Pages: 6, 9

Article

THE FAMILY CAR

The automatic choke, which is the round case about 2½ inches in diameter mounted on the side of your carburetor, is a simple mechanism that comes into operation every time you start your car's engine. Without any thought or decision from you, it decides whether any choking action is necessary to start the engine, and if so, how much.

1001 ways to say almost anything to practically everybody

Not long ago, most Americans sent greeting cards only in celebration of two or three traditional holidays. Today, things are different. We prod the absent visitor with a picture of an Indian rope-climber, captioned "Come up and see me one of these days."

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

"Marriage," complained the bride of six months at our office, "surely works some subtle changes in a man.
