I'Thebest pieced ^orkever" Ihe customer had been there only once before. He had left his car to be serviced. Now he was back to have his car lubricated a second time. When the job was completed, he handed an envelope to the service station salesman and, with a grin said, "Read that sometime." Then he was gone. Inside the envelope was a letter to the president of the company complimenting the salesman for the excellent work done on his car. In it he wrote, "This was the finest grease job I ever had done on my car, and every time I put my hands on the wheel I feel like saying thank you." Happily, it has not been unusual for one of our lads to get a pat on the back for work well done. But we other Standard Oilers are pleased that such letters still flow in from the public constantly— even in these war times. For the station salesmen are our "front men." Drillers and refiners and stenographers may work just as hard at their jobs. But it's these lads in the stations who meet the public. Hence, it's nice to know the public approves them—despite their wartime handicaps. It's a condition, not a theory, that motorists must get along on little so that the military services may have much. And our "front men" serve the very people who must accept these shortages. Nevertheless, the letters show appreciation and understanding. Best of all, they appraise at high worth those extra efforts our salesmen make to stretch existing supplies into extra civilian miles. To the rest of us, that's inspiring — a sort of "E" flag from the public. , (flag, with 3 ttan. •wardld la emr (Mchnweid Ittinexy STANDARD OF CALIFORNIA Have Your Eyes Examined Open a Charge Account GLASSES • That arc right for your eyes anil your job.
