Yet the Robins are better equipped than either of these other three teams/ The three clubs that are searching most diligently for ^itmlng huriers Are the New York Giants, the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates. They need pitchers badly. Hal Carlson) the best pitcher of the'Cuba this season, •was taken by death. The others have not come through as expected. The huriers of 'the i Pirates are just so-so, Ho championship calibre, in the main. Despite the heed of the Cubs and the Pirates, the "contending" team in the worst 'plight is the New ,York Plants. And Manager John McOraw, one of the smartest'men in organized baseball, knows it. i So ha is on the bunt. .••-••/• A good team' helps to make good iSltchers, but-there are pitchers who help to carry on a team because they are as much better,than the average pitcher as a star batter is better than the average hitter. And no team can •win a pennant\ without some hunlers Of this class. '. • John McOraw needs to look for pitchers of championship timber, for no staff Has fallen down like' his has. ™ art! fftfctt WULfetjglUfc <rf m umym ft*d K — atiTlWt ittMfth ati« led the fMfVn « jRHfeentafe «t .*».

The worst disappointment ef ail was Larry Benton. He won If games and lost 24, last year and BOW he has been traded to .Cincinnati, where; he lost anothef Tuesday. this year, the Olant pitchers have been showing about as they did last year, despite their early lead in the league. Walker, with six victories and three defeats is holding-Ma 1929 pace. Hubbeli has won five and lost' three. Fltzsimmons has won four and .lost three. . •. ' ; » ..,.-• Herb Pruett was taken on from Newark and has one victory .and tfjfee ^defeats, Joe oenewich has won one and two losses. McOraw In looking around took on Clarence Mitchell from St. Louis. He has lost three. Pete Donohue was taken frbm the Cincinnati Reds. He has hot received a fair trial as yet. So the Giants, Chicago and Pittsburgh, all. reckoned as "contenders" by the experts, are still looking-for pitchers. John McOraw Is looking hardest • and trading oftenest. But What can be done. Even Uncle Wilbert Robinson of the Robins would'like to bolster his staff. _ IN ONE HOUND.

Lets STOP TALK ^^^^^•^j^^^XS^S^^^A. ^^r in^'C <• Hi i o I f. JLx*d stop long enough-to find out what ail these claims for different kinds v of gas mean. Before starting, let's get one thing straight. There are two decidedly different things—regular gasolines selling at no increase in price—and special motor fuels selling at a premium price. The American Oil Co. sells both types and can speak without prejudice. \ better Regular Gasoline We will not claim that Orange American Gas will give performance equal to a real JB / * ^ [special motor fuel. You can't get something for jnothing and we won't say that (you can. But Orange American Gas, [trade from the best crudes ever discovered, refined by the newest refining methods, gives you an exceptionally high antiknock value and better all^around performance than any other product selling at regular nc t e regardless of name, color or claims. But there is no regular gasoline that can deliver perform- ance equal to that of a real, premium motor fuel. Motor Fuels cost more per gallon \ Of course, there ^re a lot of gasolines masquerading 'as special motor fuels and \claiming motor fuel advantages. But you've never seen diamonds selling at rhinestone prices. You can't get mink for the price of -rabbit. You must buy a Pullman ticket to get Pullman service. And if you pay less than premium prices you're bound to get less than real special motor fuel performance. Original Special Motor Fuel There's no product made — regular gasoline or motor fuel- that can equal the performance delivered by Amoco-Gas, the original special motor fuel. By performance we mean power and' pick-up, quick starting and the knockless rating you hear so much about. Amoco^Gas has every advantage of other high-grade motor fuels — and several ex~ clusively its own. In addition to these features, Amoco-Gas offers you the lowest cost -per mile. It gives you niore miles to each gallon* It reduces operating expenses byreducingrepainhills. It keeps your car on the road and-out of the shop. It increases the trade- in value of your car. Amoco-Gas costs more per gallon because it does more and because it's worth more, You can't get something for Nothing REMEMBER THIS: In business today, yesterday and , tomorrow—the same rule holds good. You don't get more than you pay for. If you pay regular gasoline price you get regular gasoline^—some better than otheVs—Orange American Gas the best buy of all. If you want a real, honest-to-goodness motor fuel—that will deliver real special motor fuel performance-—you'll have to pay the premium price for Amoco-Gas which, after all, costs less in the end. ^ v. ~v v We have made a clean-cut statement about two distinct products—regular gasolines and premium motor fuels. Now the choice is yours—go out and fill your tank.
