Ford Hopkins Drug Store ,1 120 From Charles City in State Music Fest CHARLES CITY, May 3.--The first of the contestants in the state DICK SEE says "This Is No Tea Party" '1 can't emulate our forefathers who flumped that tea overboard in Boston Bay because of high taxes, but I know one shoe shiner that's caught the spirit of the times. His, sign read: 'Shine Free; Tax 10e.' That's true of gasoline. We got federal taxes, state taxes and even city and county taxes in some places on gasoline. The result is that on an average about 40c of every dollar you spend for gasolrae goes for taxes. That means more'n the cost of gasoline. It looks like it might be cheaper to use 3.2 beer if the durn stuff would burn. "I ain't jawin' nobody about this but the motoring public has got to be pretty careful or we'll all be riding kiddie kars. "That's one thing about our NEW SPRING DIXIE GOLDEN GASOLINE.
