A number of clubs throughout the state have already started work on plans for planting, clean- up and other beautification pro- leers-many others are deslrious of learning what they can and should do for the statewide cele~lration. The state organization is cur- rently active in the efforts to beau tify ,the state, and in working in cooperation wiVh various state a- gencies in attempting to achieve t~ese goals. Last year they took over the reactivation of the "Kqep West Virginia Green" program!of public education in forest fire pro vention and control. Since indivi- dual members have been indoc- trinated, plans are underway to or< ganize with other .civic groups on the county level .to do further work.

CamPbell Palmer III is a mem- ber of the executive board and spoke at the cor~erence.

PHONE :--Acamedy 6-4541 ~'The onc thing wc know car buyers want above all in an automobile is quality. Yet many people assume that all cars today are pretty much the same J. EMMET JuooE in this respect. This is far from bcing the case. I can name at lcast 30 basic differences in the design of our '59 Mercury, Natu- rally, we feel thesc, differences make Mercury a better car. For example: EXTHASTRENGTH STARTS WITHTHE FRAME The backbone of every Mercury is the framc. We use a heavy box-type con- struction-thc heaviest in the industry. Competitors usc frames that are up to 125 pounds lighter. WE BUILD QUALITY YOU CAN SEE Comparc the way Mercury builds en- gine hoods. Most competitive cars use what is known as a single-panel con- struction. This type of hood can be twisted and turned with the slightcst pressure--' often flutters and vibrates when the car is in motion. At Mercury, on the other hand, we use a doublc- panel construction--two layers of steel with the insulation sandwiched in betwccn. Not only is Mercury's hood morc rigid, but it looks bettcr. YOU FEEL THE QUALITY WITH EVERY STOP... Mercury brakes are the largest in the field-with up to 22% more brake lin- ing than competitive cars. And only Mercury in its field has brakes that adjust themselves mechanically. You save money by eliminating periodic adjustments. And you are safcr bc- cause Mercury brakes stay properly adiusted for the life of the linings. ..AND EVERY TIME YOU TAKE THE WHEEL All 1959 Mercurys have a~qexible cou- pling installed in the ~tecring system. This acts as an insulator--absorbs road shocks that would otherwise travel up to the steering wheel. Mercury, unlike some cars, gives you this with either manual or power steering. WE HAVE PLENTY OF PROOF THAT THIS IS THE BEST-BUILT CAR IN AMERICA TODAY We know it is the grcatest Afercury cver designed and built. Never in Mercury's 20-year history have we had so much value in the product itself, Meicury has advantages everywhere over competition. The four described on this page are only typical. In fitture messages I'll tell you about dozens more-in styling, comfort, in ever~- thing you want in a car."
