The Commission adopted just as good a book at $1.39.

Why did Woodley's tenure of service as Superintendent of Hattie burg Schools come suddenly to an end ? 2. Why did Woodley accept an ap- pointment as Director of Summer School in 1921 from Superintendent Bond, a year after he says Bond be- came such a bad man ? 3. Why did Woodley become the[ paid agent of Ginn & Co. on a salary[ of $300 per rffonth and traveling ex-I peases when he knew it to be one l of the eomvanies that offered the] highest prised books for adoption in| 1920 ? 4.

THE UNIVERSAL CAI ANNOUNCEMENT of Interest to MILLIONS of FAMILIES "1 will build a oar for tim muHitude'" Said Henry Ford in 1903--Read how the fulfillment of that prophecy is now made possible through the Ford WookI00 Purohaso Plan For many years it has been Henry Ford's per- " sonal ambition to make the Ford the universal ear ---to put it within the reach of the millions of people who have never been privileged to enjoy the bent fits of motor car ownership. During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford ears have been placed in the hands of retail customers---more than a millilon and a half of them within the past twelve months--and yet there are still millions of families who are hopefully looking forward to the day when they can own a Ford. And now the way is open. Under the terms of this plan you ean select your Ford Car, set aside a small amount each week and you will be surprised how soon you will own it. In the mbantime your money will be safely deposited to your credit where it will draw interest Think it over. Five do}lars will start an account. The whole family can participate in it  father, mother, brothers and sisters each doing a little. Why not start today. Stop in and talk it over with your local Ford dealer. He will be glad to fully explain the details of the plan and help you t .ge starte toward the ownership of a Ford car. Ford Motor Company, Detroit, Michigan. WOODVILLE MOTOR CO. THOS. A.
