FARM VETERANS CAN TAKE "ON THE JOB" TRAINING A big boost for "-back to the farm" came recently in a ruling that veterans interested in farming as a vocation or in agricultural occupations directly related to .farming, are entitled to "on the "job" training and compensation ( as well as vets entering ahy other line of work.

There's only one way to clean them out. Dissolve the sludge they live in, with our patented Cisco Solvent . . . and make sure your engine is really clean before each oil change. You see, Cisco Solvent, unlike mere "flushing oils" contains a special solvent, Xylol, that loosens the embedded material by dissolving the sludge and floating it out when the crankcase is drained. Clean oil in a clean engine is the 1 most important rule in car maintenance. So why not drive in today and ask, for a Cisco Solvent Treatment.
