MAY 1 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE F I V E URGE DELAY IN M. ST. L SALE Appeal for Foreclosure of Property Taken Under Advisement. MINNEAPOLIS, May 1. (.!')--An appeal for immediate foreclosure sale of the entire property of the Minneapolis and St. Louis railroad, presented by holders of $1,700,000 of preferred claims, was taken under advisement today by Judge Wilbur F. Booth in federal court, after bondholders had urged that the sale be delayed at least six months. Attorneys for the bondholders' committee argued that attempts to dispose of the road at this time would be useless and that creditors first should join in an effort to borrow money from the Reconstruction Finance corporation to finance a reorganization of the capital structure. The lawyers agreed that government aid offers the only solution of the road's debt problems. M. H. Boutelle and Henry M. Carlson represented the preferred creditors, who consists mainly of persons who furnished materials and supplies under prior liens. Their Substitutes ft' claims were classed as preferred early in the receivership, which took ilace July 26, 1923. Several years ago, Judge Booth issued an order 'or foreclosure sale of the Minneapolis and St. Louis, with the exception of its original line, from Albert Lea to Minneapolis, including terminals in the city. · Since then, $950,000 of mortgage bonds on that line have matured in 1927, been extended to 1932, and jone into default. All lines of the road are now subject to foreclosure and preferred creditors urge the property be sold as a unit, rather than piecemeal. They pointed out that sale of the Albert Lea position, key of the system, would greatly lessen the value of remaining lines.

This New Oil, In Competition with Five Widely-Advertised Motor Oils, ExeeHed the Others-Proved By This Official Test! Y OU have a large investment in your motorcar--only efficient lubrication can protect this investment. Conoco conducted the "Destruction Test" to allow you to make the wisest choice for your car. Six oils, a single fill of 5 quarts, with no more oil added, in six brand-new strictly stock cars, were driven until the motor in each car was destroyed from lack of lubrication. The Contest Board of the American Automobile Association supervised every detail. The first oil failed, with motor destroyed, at only 1,713.2 miles . . . others failed in rapid succession .. . the best of the competing oils going to 3,318.8 miles . . . while New and Improved Conoco Germ Processed Motor Oil lubricated its motor for a total of 4,729 miles . .. more than 3,000 miles farther than the first oil to fail . . . and more than 1,400 miles farther than the second best oil! Thanks to Conoco's Hidden Quart protection, this amazing victory stands unchallenged. New and Improved Conoco Germ Processed Motor Oil introduces long life to motors, with extremely low consumption --over 4,729 miles on five quarts of oil! It is a simple but dramatic story. It is VITAL to you as a user of motor oil. It proves claims of low consumption and points the way to true economy in motor protection and saving of repair bills, yet costs no more per quart than other quality oils.
