MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MAY 11 1934 FAYETTE COUNTIES IN 2ND HOUSING SURVEY WORKERS TO fAKE STATISTICS Villages and Towns Will Be Studied in 10 Counties ; of State. · 'AMES, May 'll.--Plans, for a second housing survey in Iowa--this one in villages and towns--to com- inence early next week were announced here yesterday by Dr. Margaret Reid, professor of economics at Iowa State college, who is to direct it. .,, · The survey, Dr. 'Reed said, will be very similar to that just completed under her direction on Iowa farms. The" village and town sur^ vey, like its predecessor, is made possible by funds supplied by the federal emergency relief administration. · . " Twoty-one workers will be kept busy for about 8 weeks on the survey. It will be made in the same 10 Iowa counties where the previous survey was conducted. · Working in co-operation with the housing and health division of the Iowa planning · board, the survey will gather information about housing conditions--what modern conveniences Iowa homes in villages and towns now possess, and what their tenants desire--with a view to developing a program of home improvement in the state. Dr. Reid said that she expects the survey to be less difficult than the rural housing investigation because of the concentration of homes in smaller areas and because home owners lave become familiar with the -types of information sought by the investigators. .The counties in which the survey will be conducted are Scott, Sioux, Webster, Mitchell, Fayette, Benton, Story, Madison, Shelby and Davis.

To discover the answer, university psychologists recently made independent surveys in nine Mid-west cities. The results proved that the average motorist wants facts--proved that he appreciates authentic information which helps him select gasoline intelligently. Naturally, we are gratified that so many car owners voted Phillips advertising as "most sincere." We make no trick claims, we employ no high-pressure salesmanship in print, because we have the following basic facts around which to build every Phillips 66 advertisement: 1. In each ad, we print in plain figures the definite, gravity (or high test) range of Phillips 66 for the month, conclusive evi- dence which tells you bow high the test ,is. Decide for yourself why others do not publish their gravity figures. 2. Phillips is the world's largest producer of natural high test gasoline. 3. Matching or tailoring gasoline to the weather was pioneered ,and first offered by Phillips. We call this process CONTROLLED VOLATILITY; 4. We use lead tetraethyl to insure genuinely high anti-knock value. 5. We charge nothing [extra for high test Phillips 66. On the basis of these facts, it is obvious that it doesn't take a mechanic to/eel the difference. Once you Phill-up with Phillips at the Orange and Black 66 shield, the way your motor runs is our best advertisement. 62.066 at the price of ordinary gasoline
