POOLE MOTOR COMPAKY *oufh Ellis Poolc, Owner & Operator Mo. f, BIG JOB for Earning? / ...meeting your ** * BIG and GROWING NEED for Oil! The better you live, the more oil you need. Today—3 million more cars are on the road than pre-war. 1,500,000 more homes have oil heat. Five times as many diesel locomotives now. Twice as many farm tractors and trucks. i More oil spells more progress. Bui—this rising need for oil can be met only by modernising nnd expanding on a big scale —and in a hurry in spite of today's high costs. To do this job, Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) and its affiliates are spending one, billion dollars in 1947 and 1948 alone —for new wells, plants, tankers, pipelines, storage tanks, and all the other things it lakes to get you the oil you need. That billion dollars is money that goes back into the business from earnings, past and current. . In 1947, for Instance, we put 426 million dollars into replacements and expansion. To do this, we: (1) used all funds act aside to replace worn-out equipment; (2) ploughed back well over unit the year's profits—all that was left after paying dividends; and (3) (lipped heavily into savings put aside in years past to help meet just such 'needs as we face today. Iti-the seven yctir.t 1940 through 1946, we spent well over one billion dollars for needed equipment, mostly for war needs. Now, in just two years, we are spending another billion, dollars. This money comes from the business itself. Money made on the jolt goes back into the joh. Profits we reinvest for needed production facilities work for everybody. They pay for the capital investment that we must make totfny to get the oil you need tomorrow. STANDARD OIL COMPANY (NEW JERSE.Y)
