• Emmy Collom Pupils In 2 Recitals Here

To the Hen and. Women Of Thi!l!i §choo• District: You will make an important purchase when you buy your next school bus. Let it be a Profitable purchase too. Here's how you profit when you buy

PACIFIC SCHOOLCOACH. l. YOU PROFIT BY OWNING THE FINEST,' SAFEST SCHOOL BUS BODY MADE and at little or 110 extra cost. It's built right here in tbe Northwest. Tbat means up to 20 percent savings in sales and cross-country delivery costs alone-savings which are spent for more and better materials and workmanship in Pacific bodies. 2. YOU PROFIT BY HOLDING A TEN-YEAR FACTORY GUARANTEE backed by more than forty years of manufacturing integrity. No other school bus body builder guarantees his product for more than a year. Pacific bodies arc built to last-and the guarantee is the proof. 3. YOU PROFIT BY LOWER UP-KEEP COSTS. Strong, safe Pacific bodies need less maintenance. Factory servicemen will periodically check school bus bodies in ycmr own school district. 4. YOU PROFIT WITH A PERSONAL RETURN ON SCHOOL BUS PURCHASE MONEY-a return in the form of circulating payroll dollars. When you support regional industry, it supports you. When you spend public funds for a Pacific Schoolcoach, those funds support home enterprise that pays the taxes that supply the funds for schools and more school buses.
