.A OAKLAND TRIBUNE, SATORITAT, NOV. 23, 1935 ... . - " i" GOQDFELLOWS EIIE CASH; fT F, Herms Again to Be Scout Leader HereV Lesson in Economy A Demonstrated in Purchase - Of Layette for Bluebird am Imunn to the Good felloes, to consider '.cash first vhM thev want to help- make Christmas cheery for the cheerless. The lady with shining eyes, came a tha Bluebird with a brand new layette for one of the Christmas babies babies whose mothers are fcrnlrn.lMrtd ' beCAUM their iS nothing, nothing at all, for the new ' little ones. - Tt nriM ta w 'rtlll on the Al.v . . . n - - box from the store. The Biuemra caught sight of It The Goodfellow "'Mady had done the best she knew but she did not know that for tne same price, contributed in cash, the Wnrtilrd. bv his soeclal way of flying In at store . windows, and the large purchasing power of the " Goodfellow money Bag, migm nave bought two identical layettes for the price she paid for one. She (Goodfellow) as she Is, did ' not know that her service was half' service when It should have been double service and it is surprising how many Christmas babies there are this year, too many to be listed by letter. ' But here is on mother who might have had the "extra" layette, If the Goodfellow had known about the double power of her gift iff cash. And this mother is only one of -many. , '"Will It be possible for me to get a little help?" she asks. "My husband has been ill for two months with a hurt spine. I have two little boys and one girl and we are expecting another baby about Christ-mas time. Would it be possible for i me to. get a few clothes for the children and the baby coming? "We haven't been here long enough to receive aid from the so' cial service. My husband has been unemployed so long things look quite hopeless. The boys are two and four and the girl if twelve They aren't expecting any tops, if I can only get them a few clothes." Again no suggestion of the size of clothes needed and you Good . fellows must know that it Is sheer chance whether second-hand clothes fit. Imagine two children, coming trustingly to the Bluebird for clotheg and finding that one is lucky enough to discover something to fit while . the brother or sister must go away ragged, because, in the whole selec tlon,. nothing would do. I don't believe the lucky one would feel any happier about it " than the loser, do you? ' , ' ' There are lucky ones, and we are glad, and grateful to the Goodfel lows who made them lucky. Per- - baps that particular. Goodfellow ' could ipurejhe outgrown garment, when it was beyond her means, though, not beyond her heart to spare the money which would have luted these two children above the cruelty of mere luck. But suppose those same two ragged children had come to the Bluebird, equally trusting, and the Bluebird had said: "Come right along and hurry up. Wait till I get my Goodfellow money bag, and I'll see that you both ' have clothes that fit in a jiffy." ' Isn't that really a happier end-ting? And It is an ending made possible only by the Goodfellows who help fill that money bag, who re willing and able to add to their kindness, wisdom, that their kindness may go farther to brighten sad faces, 'We think mostly of children at ' Christmas time. But sometimes the ' om and lonely also long for their ' little day of brightness: Do they, too, not deserve remembering? Hera comes a letter written "in behalf of an old man who lives in one tiny room. I know the man," the writer continues, "and I know lie ' won't have any Christmas. If you will help him, I thank you in advance." . How can you bring Christmas le Bn old man, Goodfellows? You ean not send Moa toy? And the eld and lonely and bereft are sometimes "crotchety" in their tastes. He might want a bathrobe -- but Just as likely he has an unappeased longing for a gold-fish bowl. The only way to bring Christmas to this old and lonely man Is for the Blue-bjrd to have free hand to find out what ha really wants for Christmas, tand to dip into the Goodfellows' csh aupply to get it for him. v .

Again Standard Oil's Aviation Gasoline blazes the trail - fueling the First Trans-Pacific Air-mail Service to the Orient ;,, : vf-y vf'.C'.;' Today as you read this Pan-America's "China Qipper," largest airliner ever developed in the United States, is winging her way toward Manila. And. once more aviation gasoline supplied by Standard Oil is chosen to make flying history 1 , Once more as it was for theJpioneer flights of Lindbergh, Byrd, Maidand and Hegenberger, Smith and Bronte, Jensen and Schluter, the six Navy flying-boats to Hawaii, and riomer-ous other long-distance and recottl-breaking trips. Including, of course, the four trans-Pacific path -finding flights completed by the "Pan-American Oipper" earlier this year. This new flight inaugurates a regular air-mail service and a new era of commercial rela. tions between America and the Orient. Instead of the long, weary , weeks required by the old-time clipper ships, the schedule now calls for sixty flying hours with convenient stops as indicated on the map below. Soon the "China dipper" 'will have two sister ships, and the three seaplanes will maintain regular air-mail and passenger schedules. , To drive the "China Clipper's" four 800-horsepower, 14-cylinder Wasp engines over a course of 8000 miles from', California to Manila, Pan- American Airways places its reliance in Standard Oil's aviation gasoline, already outstanding in overseas and trans-continental aviation.
