That is a broad claim. And we expect that many ·will doubt it We therefore produce a gasoline so goad that the very first tankful will prove Phillips ' 66 quality. The net result is that, to our knowledge, no motorist who has tried it once has ever failed to come back for more. They actually feel the difference. Every mile they travel proves the money-saving value of CONTROLLED VOLATILITY, the Phillips principle ·which makes each gallon you buy match your ·weather at the time you buy it And Phillips 66 year 'round gravity, from 60.6° to 71.4% is always higher test than others. At no increase in price. It means money in your pocket to stop at the Orange and Black 66 shield. Fill up your tank. Pay nothing extra for the extra high test Then drive away with. better performance guaranteed by the 5,918 members of the Phillips organization.

INCREASE SHOWN IN U.S. TOTAL Construction Activity Will Give Much Employment, Officials State. By KADFORD E. MOBLEY ' Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 10.--Federal aid highway contracts amounting to 51,634,000 wore Iowa last month, swelling the 'national total which is four times greater than last year for the entire country, the public roads bureau announced here today. According to reports made to the bureau, the Iowa contribution ta the national figures was one of the most substantial made. It indicates ,an extensive road-building program In the state for the current year and a large expenditure on the part of the state as well as full use of the funds made available from the federal treasury. Woods Makes Statement. Citing the increase in the road funds, Col. Arthur Woods, chairman of the president's unemployment committee, made the following statement: "This increase in highway construction, creating immediate opportunity for employment of thousands of workmen, should contribute considerably to the decrease in unemployment in those states which have .taken advantage of the greatly augmented federal aid funds this year. · , Industries Are Quickened. "In addition," he continued, "thi demand for materials created by the contracts should bring about a very appreciable quickening of the industries that supply them." The federal roads bureau is now engaged in a check as to the type and mileage roadway included ic the program for the present year. A cursory examination, according to officials, shows that a higher type of roadway is generally laeing contracted for than in past years and the bureau believes that greatly improved roadways will result. It Is believed that the general statement for all states holds true for Iowa in .particular. The total value of contracts for federal aid roads let last mouth was 552,356,395.24 for all states. The exact Iowa fignre was $1,634,545.37. Ell;s Homo Planned. OELWEIN, April 10. {UP)--A new 540,000 Elks home will be built iiere shortly.
