Why MAPLE outwears STONE Every shoe in the thousands that strike a stone sill, grinds off its toll of fine particles in an unchanging friction. But Maple builds up its own resistance to wear, because each pass ing foot increases the polish on this hard-fibred, tight-grained wood, making it smoother and smoother. Wherever wear is essential or beauty desired-in home, office, school, church, apartment, public or indus trial building-floor with Maple. And to be sure of the grade and quality you should have, use flooring produced according to rigid inspec tion standards of the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association. Thus you get the flooring made from the climate-hardened, slow growth Maple of Michigan and Wisconsin-the source of the world's finest Maple floors.
