The instant you touch the starter, it snaps into action like firemen answering a 4-11 alarm. The result is less drain on your battery and reduced crankcase dilution. Phillips 66 does this because it has a controlled January gravity of at least 68.4°. "We make it extra high test and charge nothing extra, because we know that mere claims won't win the favor of experienced motorists. That is why really different pep and performance are scientifically refined into Phillips 66 by the $320,000,000 Phillips organization . . .

WATERWAY VISION NEARING REALITY (Continued From Page 1). the Guif of Mexico could, not be overestimated, he wrote. ' Portage Is Cut. Today the portage Marquette walked across has been cut, and "Sarlic creek or the Chicago is connected, by a deep canal, with the 3es PJaines arid Illinois rivers. The Illinois waterway has been taken Dver by the federal government, its' ocks, dams and canals are being ebuilt. The unreliable Illinois river i being harnessed to man's will. 'Jans are being made to handle ,500,000 tons of freight right from be start. When -the waterway is complet- d,- however, it will hardly live up o the expectations of Marquette ud the other dreamers of the last wo centuries. Big lake boats can- ot be accommodated in a channel lat has" a minimum depth of only me feet; the principal traffic is ex- ected to be furnished by a very rab type of vessel--the barge. The new waterway project has iree principal parts. The sanitary istrict canal, 24 feet deep, ties on o^the.iChicago-river..and goes.,as ar-as .'Lockport witb .the installa-\ Jon- : of machinery- for the moyab'e bridges, this part will be completed. Partly Rebuilt. From Lockport down to Utica is he old Illinois waterway, nearly :ompleted once by the state and now being finished arid partly rebuilt by the federal government, -he large share of the work is be- ng dorie here, .on locks and dami or the Des Plaines and Illinois rivers.

There are 7,000,000 aliens in the United States, of which lovya has few. Chicago hopes to get 12 p'r 1-1 out of the 27 seats Illinois will have. In Wisconsin two bills, one by the conservative republicans, one by the LaFollette forces, confine themselves to the method of selecting a committee to work out the problem. A resolution of protest against the loss 'of one seat has been sent to the senate judiciary committee in Vermont. South Dakota, which has two congressmen left, may elect both at large. If it becomes impossible in other states to pass reapportionment bills during the present legislative ses sions, congressmen would be elected at large until new alignments could be made. Below Utica the Illinois river is mostly navigable but the government project calls for dredging and other work all the way down t p . 3rafton where the Illinois empties into the Mississippi. The annual commerce on the Illinois, river has totaled only 150,000 to 200,000 tons in recent years, but Colonel Weeks said that after completion of the new waterway he expected at least 7,500,000 tons of^ freight to be handled eacn year. The only power development along the waterway is planned by the state.. Plants are to be constructed at Brandon Road, Dresden Island, Bells Islands and Starved Rock. Besides the Dresden Island and Brandon Road dams and locks' for which contracts were awarded recently, construction has yet to be started on the Marseilles dam an-i canal. There is also a great deal of work to be done at Joliet where the proposed water surface is no\v above the retaining walls. LURES OF OTHER SPOTS ARE CAUSE (Continued From Page 1). Texas three; New .York, New Jersey and Ohio two- each; Connecticut, Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Washington one each. Town Battles Country. In the states where the greatest gains have been made the battle is between' town andi country. Los Angeles increases a metropolitan grip on Southern California; Detroit factory hands take-the scepter from Michigan countrymen; Chicago towers over downstate Illinois; San Antonio and Dallas rise in importance in Texas. Where this situation prevails the wetland dry problem also strongly leavens the political melee- whicu revolves around re-districting. The drys, believing the urban areas to be wet, struggle to escape their domination. The wets want pny new wet voices heard. · In most of the states plans are still indefinite. Tentative bills have been introduced in many legisln- tures but the real fight awaits tha warring days of the sessions. In Minnesota, where one district must be cut off, the finger points to that of Congressman Paul John Kvale, only farmer-labor member of congress. His is the smallest district in the state and may be the one abolished. Ilule Out Aliens.

Assertions that .regular transoceanic' transportation by dirigible could not be established without assurance of airmail contracts were made before the senate commerce committee by officials of the Goodyear-Zeppelin company.

DES MOINES, Feb. 6. (A?)--Iowa would vote May 12 on the constitutional 'amendment to issue state road bonds under a joint resolution introduced today in the Iowa house of representatives by J. H. Johnson of Marion county and F. W. Elliott of Scott county. The date more than three months away will give opportunity, John- san said, for a supreme court test on the amendment's validity, if the legislature passes the Benson bill providing for declamatory opinions. Benson's measure is now being considered by a senate committee. Johnson explained that the' good roads forces would seek a legislative recess in April until after the election, in order to pass enabling bills for the bonds if the amendment should be adopted. Another bilf offered today,would permit counties to destroy records 10 or more years old. Representative John T. Hansen of Scott county, the" author, said his county's courthouse is filled with assessors' books and' other valueless papers dating back to 1840.

Clark of Linn county, in this onnection, reported that 20 per ent of the bills before the legisla- ure called for additional tax levies, ut Hicklin replies he believed this 'as an actual need. The senate held up consideration t three appointments submitted esterday by Gov. Dan Turner be- ause the subcommittee was not eady to report.
