IS YOUR Win TARTE W I N T f R B L E N D You can settle that most fairly.on your own home grounds after you both have your chance at these latest simple rules, which 'automotive authorities approve today: First be sure the garage doors hold open against any Winter wind!... your protection from fumes Before touching-the starter or ignition switch, step on clutch pedal and keep it down Open hand-throttle about one-third Now pull choke out.full (unless your car has automatic choke) With ignition switch still off (except startix-type) operate your starter, until your engine has made 2 or 3 revolutions While starter is turning, switch on the ignition, being ready to release starter so that'it has nd chance of retarding the engine after-explosions begin! People have asked whether tlie advice we are printing about correct Winter starting doesn't help all gasolines. Yes, but anything you can do with them doesn't bring them up to Special Winter Blend Conoco Bronze. We are not afraid of that. Continental Oil Company G A S O L I N E
