WeUunpka was the county seat, and the metropolis of Elmorc county. The thriving communities " of Nixburg and Weoka looked at Titus with brow uplifted. Then one day, things changed. Joe Sewell in 1930 went up to the Cleveland Indians. A year later his brother Luke, of the Titus Sewclls, joined the same team. Now there Is nothing left for Nix- urg and Wcofco—and for that latter, Wetumpka—but lo sorrow, inmorloliiy has passed them by.

Sec Todav SHEARED in Their Own Desire BETTER STICK TO "STANDARD" Some folks believe that quality in motor oils is governed by price and that certain oils are better simply becauit they are made from crudes which come from this stat* or that. But wise dealers and motorists know that the lubricating value of a motor oil depends more on the technical knowledge and the skill, experience, and equipment of the manufacturing organization than it does on the special crude used—and, on this score, no maniifscfurer and marketer of petroleum products excels "Standard" or has access to more choice supplies of special crudes. Back of "Standard" Motor Oil is the world's largest and best financed technical staff, engaged exclusively ia studying and solving lubricating and fuel problems. Back of "Standard" Motor Oil Is one of the largest, most experienced, and best equipped producing, manufacturing, and marketing organizations known to the Industry. Back of "Standard" Motor Oil is a refinery organization that tests and checks every "run" to insure uniform quality and dependable performance.
