Here's the situation as Under sees it: "If th? people of South'America litut been spinning and weaving their own cotton there would' h'ave been no way for International financial interests of Europe to have profited out- of South American countries."

Isn't there some simple, easy way to make sure of getting a motor oil of quality? There is! Phillips, with an outstanding reputation in the field, makes a frank and cleat statement to relieve all doubt when choosing between the various oils marketed under this good name. Phillips says, if you want our best oil, remember \ye frankly tell you that Phjjlips 66 Motor Oil is our finest quality ...the highest grade and greatest value... aniohg all the oils we offer to average motorists. 9^* Oil wears thin in summer use. It also accumulates dust, metal particles, and oxidation products. So it's wise, say experts, to drain every t\yo months, under today's reduced driving conditions.
