WHY FEBRUARY IS SHORT
In the old days when the Roman :
rulers had nothing else to worry about
they did something to the calendar,1
and February, it appears, was a vie-1
tim. Originally this perfectly good
month had 30 days in leap years and
29 in other years. February is from I
the Latin, meaning “to purify.” It
■was the custom of the Romans to cel-
ebrate the festival of purification in
Julius Caesar named July in his
own name—he saw to it there were
31 days in it. Then along carne
Augustus, and a month was named for
him, also. But August had only 30
days. So Augustus looked around
and picked on February, which had
no one particularly to defend it. He
just took a tlav off February and add-
ed it to his own pet month.
That’s why February ordinarily has
but 28 days, and why August has 31,
in keeping with the dignity of its im-

Maybe you are one of the persons
who celebrate birthdays in February.
If so. you already know that the
shortest months is the greatest of
birthday months. Quite a few cele-
brated citizens first saw the light of
day in that month.
For instance: Horace Greeley,
Aaron Burr, W. T. Sherman. William
Henry Harrison, Samuel J. Tildeu.
Thomas A. Edison, Ahrahatn Lincoln,
loseph Jefferson, George Washing-
ton, James Russell Lowell, Charles
Cotesworth Pickney, Henry Wads-
The February-born insist that the
shortest month heats all other months

There are mighty good reasons why you should buy your Ford car now.
But the biggest one is that there are only so many Ford cars—just a specified
limited number—allotted to this territory. Those who buy their cars now will
he >vise. They will have them to use whenever they wish.
Don’t put it off—next spring, even next month, is an uncertainty. We
cannot take orders for spring delivery. Even now, we must have signed bona-
fide orders before our monthly allotment is shipped us. So the only way for
you to he sure of getting a Ford car, is to order it now. Get your name on an
order. It is your protection.
Again we tell you, the allotment for this territory is limited and you must
buy now while deliveries are possible. As ever, the demand for Ford cars is
away in advance of production. So, it’s first come, first served. Spring, sum-
mer! autumn and winter arc all the same to the Ford car. It is a valuable ser-
vant every day of the year. Rain or it is ready for your demands. You
can use it. Buy now while the buying is possible.
