With the steadily increasing
use of Durant cars, the Durant
emblem has come to typify a
higher standard of motor car
performance as well as owner
satisfaction.



Durant Motor Co.

of California
Oakland, California



Dealers Everywhere

AUTOMOBILE DEPARTMENT




The popularity of the Durant can be at-
tributed largely to the fact that no single unit
dominates in excellence. Thoughtful, well
balanced engineering has resulted in a uni-
formly high standard of design throughout.
From the matter of appearance and equipment
to performance and maintenance the Durant
provides well rounded satisfaction.

are better and cost less

•■ ' 1


^



We make them in California from Cali-
fornia sugar pine or white cedar.
There is no long- distance freight charges
to add either to the raw material or
finished product. Any baker who has used our peels will tell you that they
outlast the Eastern peels every time, and they are really self-sharpeners. Even
if they cost you more, you would still be ahead by using them. But they cost
less. Write for price list NOW!
