Shell Ethyl Livelier, quicker anti-knock gasoline . . . because science has found a way to REMOVE EVERY SLOW-VAPORIZING, LAZY PARTICLE Nc VisuaJizing a section of one of the multiple "bubble cap frays" in ShelTs refining and "scrubbing'* tamers, HvreaUthchcavy,Iasyparticlcsarc'ivaskcd out, producing the volatile, lively pasolinc base for Super-Shell £%T lOW i ; i science's new, perfected anti-knock fuel! Super-Shell Ethyl is different. It contains Ethyl fluid, of course --a/generous charge that assures positive anti-knock value. But with this is now blended a special gasoline. \ Shell engineers developed it. They knew thait inferior gasoline --no matter what was added--- doean't deliver beat performance in your car. They set out to make anti-knock fuel utterly free of slow-firing, harmful, "heavy" gasoline particles. Months of experiment.. , then they succeeded! It is a matter of "washing" the gasoline in a series of huge refining towers where .the gasoline vapors travel over Shell's amazing system of "bubble cap trays." Here all the harmful, heavy "fractions" so often left in gasoline are "scrubbed" out. Into a special pipe flows only the volatile, lively gasoline which Shell blends tvith Ethyljluid! Thus Super-Shell Ethyl gives you finest engine operation. Quick starting. Smooth^ even power. High anti-knock value. Now ... see what really fine performance your motor is capable of giving. Try this new Super-Shell Ethyl today. One test will convince you.

Serious difficulties, however, soon nterfered with the proper care of he institute in this congested cen- er closely hemmed in by cottage.' rowded for the most part with dis- nterested folk. Then, too, it soon ecame difficult to find rooming pace to house the ever increasing elega lions. After a few years an agreement vas entered into with the to. O. F. odge. of Iowa for the use ,of Pari arch's .Militant camp on the south hora of the lake. However that amp also soon became crowded. In 1924, 30 acres of virgin timer immediately west of the, Patri- rch's Militant camp was purchased. 4. board of directors consisting of 1 men look over the development f the project with Clyde E. Baker s president and Ralph H. Collis as ecretary. The board was created y the Upper Iowa conference in 923. With the assistance of the engin- ering department at Iowa State ollege the grounds were surveyed nd plotted into possibly, the most nique and beautiful arrangement f any camp in the middle west. Relieved of Pastorate. The board of directors requested he conference to relieve Dr. Baker f his pastorate in Fayette that he ight devote his whole time to the amp as executive secretary in 1925. n 192S the tabernacle was erected ith a capacity for 1,000 and with ve rooms for class work. Cottages began to appear upon ts purchased by individuals and by pworth leagues. In 1927 the ktt- hen for the dining hall was built ncl in 1928 the hall, with accomo- ations for feeding 300 persons at time, was constructed. ' The second floor of the hall offers ormitory accomodations for ap- roximately 100 persons. About 100 lots have been sold and 29 cottages erected. Nine of the cottages were erecUft by church organizations and 12 by Individuals. On account of Mr. Baker's untimely death, the directors of the camp have found it necessary to make arrangements to immediately complete the campaign for the lifting of the camp indebtedness. The board is asking for the'hearty cooperation of the pastors and churches in bringing to a completion the work to which Mr. Baker gave so many years of devoted service.
