On Hallowe'en, two centuries ago, country folks set
bowls of cream outside their windows as an offering to
keep witches away. Empty bowls in the morning the
witches had come and gone away satisfied! Meanwhile

are the petty doubts and worries that crowd the joys from
life. A bank account is the protecting charm that chases
them from the minds of men. Like October sunshine,
it puts joy into life - the joy that comes from the assur
ance that the future is provided for.

instant ignition, snappy pick-ups and full
power and mileage unless there; is an ample
supply of low-boiling point fractions to act
Straight-distilled gasoline possesses these
boiling point fractions in correct propor

uniformly satisfactory. It is straight-distilled
gasoline that meets every requirement
of the U. S. Government specifications for
