REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS
MINGLE WITH THE CROWD.
El Reno will have the opportunity
of entertaining more than one thous
and visitors next week when the joint
convention of W. O. W. ami Woodmen
Circle is held. Every person should
make it his or her business to mingle
with the guests anti make them rejoic
because they came. The time will he
propitious for spreading a favorable
Impression of "The City Beautiful.'*
If the visitors are made to feel
comfortable they w ill say a good word
for the city when they return home.
It Is better to exert your energies for
two days nnd have a good report than
to lag and take chances of having the
wrong impression being scattered
The materia! for the visitors to
form their opinions is right here in
El Reno. If the average citizen is dis
interested in them they will be forced
to be indifferent towards the town. No
atone should he left unturned to make
the guests happy and contented
Many of the business establishments
are having their places decorated. It
is the right spirit and bespeaks a de
termination to look dressed tip. Every
business house in the city should be
adorned with the national colors. Do
not overlook this fact. He a booster!

Automobile values* as at present
established are largely due to the
foresight and courage of Mr. John
N. Willys, the president of this
lie foresaw the universal use of the
automobile and had the courage
to produce quality cars in larger
quantities than they had ever
before been produced.
Steadily increasing production made
possible savings and economies
which steadily reduced costs and
repeatedly established new values.
Eight years ago, with a net worth of
little more than $50,000 this com-
pany produced 4G5 cars.
This year, with a net worth of over
$08,000,000 we must produce
over 200,000 cars to fill our dealers*
It has required an enormous invest-
ment in plant and equipment to
prepare for this enormous produc-
The prime requisite in the automobile
industry is still foresight and cour-
Mr. Willys foresees a demand this
year in excess of the possible
In addition to enormous investment
in plant and equipment Mr. Willys
had the courage to contract long
ago for enormous quantities of raw
■ terials $35,
ready in hand for this year’s
See all this reflected in the values we
have to show you in the most
comprehensive line of cars ever
built by any one producer.
Note especially the remarkable values
represented in the Big Four at
$850 and the Light Six at $985.
