PANORAMIC WINDSHIELDS DOOR GLASS VENTILATORS BACK LIGHTS GLASS CO. 2400 BELLE ST. Dial HO 2-2731 Afroit, III. "I don't want my child to be an athlete. So why bother about his physical fitness?" Remarks like this strike at the very heart of our nation's physical fitness problem. The athlete gets all the physical conditioning he needs In school. But the physically underdeveN oped child—or the child who has no desire to participate in athletics—he's the one we should worry about. And there are dozens of him for every physically-gifted child. Unless we stimulate these youngsters—unless we put into effect in our schools the vigorous activity programs they need—thera will be more and more flabby and unfit Americans tomorrow! So, urge your local school board to carry out a vigorous physical fitness program—every day for every girl and every boy.

Remember what you learned to get your driver's license, and you'll be a better driver. Eight out of ten car accidents stem from improper driving practices — such as speeding, failing to yield right-of- way and following other cars too closely. Truck drivers and other professionals have very few accidents—mile for mile, about one-quarter as many as other drivers. The professionals know the rules of good driving—and obey them. 2. If the car won't start, there are a number of simple things worth trying. Use the starter in short bursts. Press accelerator to the floor once, then release it quickly just before you try starter. With manual shift, keep clutch pedal all the way down. With automatic transmission, make sure gear selector is at exactly the right spot. Note from Shell: We recently published an advertisement with 7 simple starting tips. For a free copy, write to Shell Oil Co., RO. Box 236, N.Y. 46, N.Y. 3. Courtesy is contagious — and adds to everyone's driving pleasure. Nobody ever cured a traflic jam by losing his temper. If you can keep your sense of humor and wait your turn, everyone will probably get where he's going sooner—including you. Another suggestion: It takes only seconds to let someone enter the roadway ahead of you, but it can save the other driver minutes. Just remember to signal the car behind you that you're slowing down or about to stop. 4. Cars respond to good care. Have the oil, battery and water checked every time you stop for gasoline. When you're driving, listen for unusual mechanical sounds. If you hear one, have it checked right away. It could save a big repair bill later on. On rough roads, take it easy—tires are tough, but they are destructible. Note: For a free copy of Shell's 12-page booklet, "44 ways to make your car last longer," write to the Shell Oil Company, EO. Box 236, New York 46, N. Y. 5. Don't take other drivers for granted. They sometimes do unexpected things. In the U.S. in 1962, they ran into stationary objects more than 164,000 times, June is prom time —and many a young man will be borrowing the family car for the first time. Here, Shell dealers offer seven driving tips that can. be useful to him all his life. So don't be too optimistic. Cars do sometimes enter intersections carelessly— especially when there's no stop sign. A car coming from the other direction might swing into your lane on a hill or curve. Your best protection is to drive defensively. The only driver you can really be sure of is yourself. 6. If you're going to be late, call home. And if car trouble is the reason, call the nearest service station, too. Don't try to make repairs close to a busy road—could be dangerous. Instead, park well off the traffic lanes, put the hood up to show you're disabled—and wait in or near the car until help arrives. Note from Shell; Thousands of Shell dealers go to special training schools each year. There, they le'arn how to spot trouble in a hurry. They can be helpful to you in almost any emergency. 7. Have a good time. So far, almost everything you've heard about cars has to do with safety. Now you're about to find out what a pleasure they can, be. Here are the keys. Just take your responsibilities in stride. And have fun. Comforting fact for parents: privers with less than three months' experience account for very few serious accidents— a good sign most new drivers do take their responsibilities seriously. So you can relax. ALTON SHELL DEALERS DE-BUNK A MYTH ABOUT CAR CARE It's a myth that you should let some air out of your tires when traveling on a hot day. Today's tires are built to take the extra pressure that builds up during hot weather driving. So, don't deflate them on hot days—or you may find them very low the following morning. Do get your Shell dealer to check your tires before you start a long trip. Proper pressure will decrease chances of tire trouble during hot weather highway driving —also lead to longer tire life. That's the real lowdown. You can count on your local Shell dealer for straight facts and honest work. See him regularly.
