    • R. L. Rich Chevrolet Co. To Give Powerglide Rides

      If you want to drive a Powerglide Chevrolet visit the showrooms of the R. L. Rich Chevrolet Company from June 18 to 30.

      R. L. Rich has set aside special demonstrators for use of the public and the period will be devoted to giving as many people as possible rides in the cars.

      Because of the customer demand for Powerglide automatic transmissions in this area, R. L. Rich explains, he has been unable to set aside demonstrators. However, he will hold cars solely for this purpose through the demonstration period.

      "Chevrolet has just built its 500,000th Powerglide and to observe the milestones it has requested all dealers to co-operate in mass demonstrations," he declared.

      Mr. Rich pointed out that Powerglide differs from other automatic transmissions on the market in that it represents a "package" improvement. Included, besides the revolutionary automatic shift, are a more powerful engine of 105 horse-power and an "Economiser" rear axle.

      "The opportunity for mass demonstrations here will show what owners have learned in more than a billion miles of driving," Mr. Rich declared. "Even a brief trial will prove that Powerglide-equipped cars are easier and more restful to drive.

      "With Powerglide, the car has no clutch. This means the climination of hundreds of manual operations in the course of an average day's driving. The result is that a driver finishes the day more refreshed and relaxed. A person has to experience the process of automatic Powerglide fully to appreciate its advantages.

      "We urge everyone not acquainted with Powerglide automatic transmission to visit our showrooms during the special demonstration period to find out for himself all the features of Powerglide automatic transmission."
    • Informal Party For Visitors

      Mrs. R. L. Rich entertained at an informal party honoring her sister, Mrs. Sam Jenkins, and her niece, Miss Anne Jenkins of Tarboro, N. C. Tuesday morning.

      Shades of pink and rose zinnias were used in the living room and dining room and the halls were beautifully decorated with yellow zinnias and daisies.

      Present were Mrs. J. D. Gray, Mrs. Gilbert Gragg, Mrs. H. M. Whitley, Mrs. W. K. Pennalleson, Mrs. L. F. Reynolds, Mrs. J. E. Willis, Miss Claraneil Speight, Mrs. E. J.
