Not all the armies of time will ever wash away his footprints from this place. Surely this spot is holy ground." That is the prologue of this wonderful production, and as one feels the deep import and the magic of these words, they are in some mystic fashion car- ried in spirit to the top of the hill where lies New Salem's his- torical village, and for more than two hours one is an eye- witness to the historical events that marked that era.

Those folks who've always had a great big yen for a new Buick. but a big worry that Buick prices ran too high for their budgets. Now we'll have to grant you that ---on style and beauty and size and impressive appearance-a 1951 Buick looks like a pretty high price tag. And we'll have to grant, too, that the zooming power and the luxu- rious ride and the heavyweight steadiness you get in a Buick would also indicate prices beyond the reach of most people. But honestly, could anything be farther from the truth when you note the sample prices for 1951 Buicks in the panel yonder? Isn't that beauty-with the big-power, big-mileage, eight. cylinder, valve-in-head Fireball Engine-and with prices starting below those of many of today's sixes-really within your budget picture? Won't you admit here and now that you can have Buick room and comfort, can have Buick ride and handling, can have Buick style and size-for little, if any, more than you've been paying for lesser cars? That leaves the next step up to you-stopping in to see us. Come in soon, look over the SPECIAL, SUPER or ROADMASTER you've always wanted- and let that happy glow go surging all through you as you sign up for yopr smart-buy Buick. 2qulp'rae, nt, acc4mtot, trim m,af  rote ., ma t the ,iver 00ised d it Tune in HENRY J.
