We'd be ashamed of ourselves if it wasn't! Since Pearl Harbor we've put every ounce of sweat and energy we possessed into perfecting the finest combat fuels the world has ever seen. Millions of dollars worth of new equip-. ment::: hundreds of thousands of man- hours and brain-hours . ;.; weren't spent in vain! Good gasoline? Man, it o«g£f tobe good! And if you're one of those who aren't surprised that Phillips research and Phillips know-how have produced a world-beatec of a gasoline, here's a little thought you can tuck in your hatband: , the most important ihtng about a Phillips 66 Service Station is still the man who runs if. Yes; he can give you fine gasoline. But he'll also give the consistently high standard of thoughtful, courteous service that has al-c ways characterized the sign of 66; We didn't forget how to deliver /^«r/duN ing the w»r, either!
