BLYTHEVILLE BAKING GO. etter The Petroleum, ; Admmistrative Board—after ihe receipt of .complaints on the part of certain of our competitors and after receiving the recommendation of the Planning and Coordination Committee—has issued an ultimatum. Tt has demanded that we discontinue our practice of offering our new product.. Aerotypc : ESSO ... under a cash refund guarantee. The Petroleum Administrative Board has taken the position .. the opinion of legal counsel to the contrary notwithstanding .. that the cash, refund feature of our guarantee constitutes a violation of RuIcs-3 nnd: 17 of Article S of (lie Petroleuln Code. We do not propose to argue the validity of the Petroleum Administrative Board's claim. The issue involved does not warrant it. ' We believe, that the public will understand our position in not taking issue with the Petroleum Administrative Board ;. despite our feeling that there is no violation of the Code in our cash refund offer. WHY WE MADE THE CASH REFUND OFFER As a matter of •company policy, we.have been definitely opposed to the common practice of making unsupported claims regarding prodviot.,; At the same time .we'\yerc"'convinced of the superiority of Aerotypc ESSO over any other motor car fuel marketed today. Therefore, we felt that through the medium of our cash refund guarantee we could offer this new product to the public without making ex' travagant claims concerning its merits by giving all .motorists an^pportunity to determine for themselves its.superiorities. . . • •• We made no reservations. We left it entirely to tuc.puhlic to pass judgment upon the product- after giving it a-thorough and impartial trial. HALF A MILLION BOUGHT .... ONLY 36 ASKED FOR REFUNDS It is significant'to note that during the first 10 days following the introduction of Aerotypc ESSO, some 500,000 motorists purchased approximately $1,000,000 worth of this new premium motor fuel, . . Of these half million purchasers, only 36 have asked for a refund. And the total sum refunded amounted (o $8.841 We do not feel that this insignificant amount creates an issue.of sufficient consequence to warrant a controversy with the Petroleum Administrative Board. On the other hand, we believe that public acceptance of Aerotypc ESSO and the ability of this fuel to make good on every score have been established beyond every reasonable doubt, as evidenced by the fact that'less than a hundredth of 1% of the "users requested a refund. Hence, the guarantee.of cash refund is discontinued as of Friday, December 2ht, 1934! We want to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of motorists who have purchased Aerotypc ESSO to date for the fair and impartial judgment which they have passed upon it. £sso MARKETERS STAND A R D 0 I L CO M P A N Y OF L 0 U I S I A N 4
