Where Lincoln Cars are

Lincoln Cars are Leland-built

In one of America's most modern factories, here Lincoln Cars are Leland-built.

Originally planned for the production of that marvelous mechanism - the Liberty Aircraft Motor-here produced in largest volume in the shortest time, that wonder workshop turns to peacetime occupation.

Here now is found an almost limitless array of new equipment, representing added millions of investment and more suitably adapted to the new pursuit.

Here is machinery of the most modern kinds, seemingly more than human in its ingenuity; and literally thousands upon thonsands of the most scientific and accurate tools and devices which genius has yet conceived.

Here the guiding hands rank with the world's most adept in their respective callings-men who have devoted their arts, their talents, and their skill, to designing, developing, refining and building cars and motors of the finer class.

Here pervades the spirit of cooperation, and of harmony, and

of fellowship-a spirit which has its source in the administrative offices.

Here is found ideal environment, that which appeals to men's better selves.

Here too are means for healthful recreation. Here men

are encouraged to develop the best that is within them; and here honest effort does not go unrewarded.

Here is seen the atmosphere of inspiration ; and here is seen incentive to achievement.

Here men of the serious minded type seek affiliation, not alone for the creature comforts, but for the skillful training they acquire, and the prestige which that training wields in the world mechanical.

Here men, and methods, and machinery; here inspiration, environment, and “knowing-how” work hand in hand for a common purpose the production of the highest type of motor car that man has yet evolved.

Here it is that Lincoln Cars are Leland-built.

The Salesman turns Preacher against fire sin

FIRE prevention is one of the most important topics

Comparative Fire Losses of Eight Great Nations based on annual per capita cost

"Below is a sheet of Johns · Manville Roofing against which I play the flame of a blow torch. No. tice it is unharmed by even this hot blue flame. You can do this with any Johns-Manville Asbestos Roofing without effect.”

"If you were up in an aeroplane you would realize how defenseless your buildings are against flying sparks. Now flying sparks carry fire from place to place,orwe should say roof to roof, and each time one falls it starts a new blaze.

"So, in preventing wide spread fires (the bad ones) the roof is the chief factor."

Such interest is heartening because it bears out our belief that commercial institutions can do much for the common good by honest propaganda, if they are courageous enough to brave the cry, “You have an axe to grind.”

We frankly admit that through such efforts Asbestos Roofing is sold. To deny this is to deny our own birthright.

But one cannot conceive of Asbestos and not think of fire resistance. So why not meet the issue on bigger, simpler grounds?

Admitting the need of Asbestos in fire prevention, we
have chosen to preach it, sustained in our course by the
knowledge that if we wanted to be small, we might sit
back and still benefit while fire prevention authorities did
it alone.
But this business didn't earn its place by trailing.

"Help! The ship is sinking! "What do we care? It doesn't belong to us.''

Look what's happening to your ship



V. LUCAS is not only a literary

and art critic of the finest perceptions and judgments, but a novelist of quiet and delightful humor and an essayist of the type of Robert Louis Stevenson. Among his novels are “Over Bemerton's,” “Mr. Ingleside," and “Listener's Lure." In "A Wanderer in Paris ” he described temptingly the restaurants of that paradise of gastronomers. But he is much more than a gastronomer, for in "A Wanderer in Holland” he re-discovered for the world the now immortal paintings of Vermeer. Two of his latest books are a collection of thumb-nail essays

“A Phantom Journal ” and “Adventures and Enthusiasms.”

· Mr. Lucas is tall; robust, ruddyfaced; not at all the literary type of the pre-Raphaelite School. He has contributed to The Outlook a number of times in the past. Perhaps we may venture to add a specimen of Lucas's quizzical humor at our own expense. One of the editors of The Outlook, at the time of Mr. Lucas's recent visit to New York, expressed to the latter his profound gratitude for the alluring descriptions of French restaurants contained in "A Wanderer in Paris," declaring that he, the editor, was more grateful to him, the humorist, for discovering the restaurants Foyot, Voisin, and La Pérouse than for bringing again to the notice of the world the beautiful pictures of Vermeer. Lucas looked at his abnormally thin interlocutor for a moment with the least suggestion of a smile and answered: “I should say from your appearance that your love of food must be rather platonic." H ENRY HOYT MOORE is Art Man

ager of The Outlook ; he designed the type-face in which The Outlook is printed. He edits the “By the Way" column and does a good deal of book reviewing. He is a member of the Pictorial Photographers of America, and one of the leaders of the impressionistic school of camera men. A characteristic example of his work is found on the front cover of this issue. THOMAS L: Masson, whose name

needs no introduction to Americans who like their humor tinged with philosophy, has been managing editor of

Life since 1893. He lives in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. His article “What are the Requirements of a Good Novel ?”! isn't so funny, but even a humorist must have his serious intervals. If he is interesting we will forgive his serious moments -and we are convinced that, with his present article, Mr. Masson will win the forgiveness of all our readers. FRAN RANK C. . LOCKWOOD, author of

“ The Old English Coffee-House,” is director of General University Extension of the University of Arizona.


Yes, it's yours.

Instead of ship" read "public utility”—perhaps even the Telephone or Electric Light Company in your town.

Rates at low tide have stranded it on the rocks, while a surging sea of costs for labor and material breaks over it smokestack high.

Whether you're a stockholder or not, through investments by your trust company and insurance company you are part owner in the public utilities. So you are protecting your own money when you see to it that they have a high enough rate to keep going.

These public servants are necessary for your safety and convenience, too. For if electric service were forced to shut down, picture the result

No street cars running. Telephone communication suspended. Factories idle. Homes deprived of electric light. Theatres and "movie" houses closed. Increased fire risk. Streets unsafe at night.

Even now the Electric Light Companies and Telephone Companies are unable to supply service to hundreds of thousands of applicants. Lack of funds stands in the way of adding equipment to extend the lines.

The reasons for such a condition are different in different places, and each case must of course be settled on its merits.

After all, though, it isn't a question of fairness or generosity to the Companies so much as a matter of self-interest to you.

How I assure myself good electric service?”—that is your problem.

Your law-makers and public serviee commissioners take their authority from public opinion. And public opinion divided by the population of your community is you.

When the Summer Season Ends MINGLED with the memories of happy vacation days is the

talk of home and school and business. The final meal. Hurried adieus. The house closed until another year. Then back to the city with its changing scenes, its new faces. But over every meal silver will continue to cast its inspiring spell, stimulate the warmth of companionship, silently suggest by its lustrous beauty the perfect welcome of never-changing hospitality, of which silver stands as the enduring symbol in both country and city homes of refinement the wide world over.
