It Is a veritable life line to motorists who will use it as they should. Keep to the right and you will always be right.

The Schultz Drug company was not raided. The Globe-Gazette regrets the error made in the article. These cold days you need n peppier, live- S?5£ lier-sf artiug gasoline lo get your motor going, right at the touch of the starter. Here it is real winter fuel -- t h e fastest-starling gasoline Standard has ever offered. To make cold weather starting easier, to eliminate wasteful, sputtering warm-up, the amount of highly volatile quick-firing units has hcen greatly increased in "Quick- Fire" Superfuel. Actually the boost averages more than 50%. Yet it still sells ot the price of regular. · * · Try it-- fill up with Quick-Fire next time you conic to a Standard Red Crown pump, and see how it does warm up a coid motor. S T I L L T H E C O M P L E T E S U P E R F U E L Santa "regular"gasolines may equal Standard Red Crown "Quick-Fire" Superfuel in one or two qualities -- · none surpasses if. And we believe thai not one equals it in ALL tho essentials of good gasoline. 1. Unsurpassed in starting -- quick warm-up. 2. 7O Octane-- top anti-knock in its price class. 3. Free ·from harmful sulphur and gum. 4-. Accurately adjusted for seasonal variations. 5. Always uniform everywhere. 6. Fresher because of Standard's popularity. 7. Sells at the price of regular.
