We use them ourselves! ANOTED automobile manufacturerwas asked at a dinner party: "If you were going to build the perfect car for yourself, regardless of cost, what would it be like?" His reply consumed the rest of the evening. We can't help being impressed with the dif ference between thatautomobile man and our selves. If anyone should askus to produce our idea of the perfect trunk, regardless ofcost,we should simply walk over to our factory and pick out an Oshkosh "Chief" from stock. One of the reasons we use Oshkosh Trunks ourselves is thepatented Oshkocentric Drawer Lock shown above. A single turn of your trunk key securely fastens every drawer from the rear. This is one of several refinements of con struction not to be found in ordinarytrunks. We have printeda booklet that describes some of the others, and shall be glad to send you a copy if you will write us at 518 High Street, Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
