(API - The j were Denise Kelly, Sharon brush and forest fires that spread Krausc. Betty Kay Breitwiser, ruin and death in the onco-rich timber and coffee states of Parana in Southern Brazil had all but burned themselves out today. Officials said the damage to timber, crops and farm land was yet incalculable. One-third of this producing area was burned otil. In their march across pine forests, coffee plantations and other farms, the fires have taken at least 136 lives, injured several thousand persons and loft an estimated 142,000 rural residents homeless, officials estimated. The fires ignited with a hot fury after seven months of drought left Parana's fertile lands tinder dry. As farmers be gan burning off their fields last month to prepare • for spring planting, a sudden frost and drop in humidity occurred. No Waitings These elements added to the already present danger. Brush fires raged out of control, and because of the poor communications in the hinterlands there was no way to warn other farmers. Most of the coffee crop that survived the frost was destroyed in the fires. While this is a blow to Parana, officials pounted out that the country has enough coffee stockpiled to meet all its international commitments for three years without growing an additional coffee bean. In addition, Brazil has important coffee centers to the north in Sao Paolo and to the south in Santa Caterina. Klabin Paper Industries, South America's largest paper producer, reported that 60 to 70 per cent of its timber reserves were burned over. A company spokesman said most of the trees escaped complete destruction and the usable remains will be sold. However, this may glut the pulpwood market for the new few years fol- owed by seious timber short ages because of the destruction of new growth. U.S. Praised The United States came in for praise as a. result of its quick response with firefighting personnel, food and medical supplies. In a telegram to President Kennedy, Parana's Governor Ney Braga said tne quick assistance from the United States showed Tina Haxelwood, Nancy Davis, Patty Barnetl. Susan Wiltshire and Joy Welsh.

Shell tells why and gives five other tips that will help you squeeze more miles out of every gallon. T HE WAY you drive has a lot to do with the mileage you get. One important thing to remember is this: use a light, steady touch on the accelerator—almost as if there were an egg between your foot and the pedaj. That doesn't mean you have to poke along. It simply means you avoid stomping needlessly on the accelerator in such a way that you force-feed the engine, wasting gasoline. Don't race your engine when you're standing still. It wastes fuel. Don't indulge in jackrabbit starts. They hold automatic transmissions in a lower gear longer, make engines run faster and squander fuel. Don't drive at excessive speeds. The raster you go, the more fuel you burn up. At 70 miles per hour, for instance, gasoline consumption will be as much as 10 percent higher than at 60. So much for some things you shouldn't do. Now, for sozne things you should do. 1. Drive "ahead of your car." Watch for slowing traffic and red lights as far ahead as you can see. You'll be able to pace yourself with the other cars, avoid excessive slowing down and speeding up, and keep a smooth, even pressure on the accelerator. Mileage will improve. 2. Get these fuel-saving engine adjustments. If spark timing is off, for example, you may be paying for it in wasted gasoline. Have it set properly. Have the compression checked for power-wasting valve and ring conditions. •Tr«4tm*rk lor Wtlf* gMOltut Mdltlr* W HattWB «WW» Here are other essential adjustments:" A. Keep your spark plugs at peak efficiency. Dirty or incorrectly adjusted spark plugs can steal up to a full mile from every gallon of gasoline your car burns. Use Super Shell gasoline with famous TCP* additive to give spark- plugs longer life. B. Adjust carburetor for correct air-fuel mixture and proper idle speed. C. Have automatic-choke checked for correct operation. D. Make sure your air filter is clean and replace it if necessary. E. Have your fuel lines checked periodically to make sure they're not leaking. 3. Check tire pressure—regularly. Keep tires properly inflated. Underinflated tires increase friction, cut mileage. 4. Check for dragging brakes. Have your Shell dealer check for brake drag the next time you're in for lubrication. If brakes drag, you pay for it not only with extra brake wear, but with extra gasoline. 5. Show this advertisement to everyone who drives your car. Especially if you pay their gasoline bills. The closer you and your family follow these tips, the better your mileage will be. To start off right, fill up with today's Super Shell gasoline. One of Super Shell's 9 working ingredients is a mileage booster called Platformate. It makes a real difference in the mileage you get. ALTON SHELL DEALERS DE-BUNK A MYTH ABOUT CAR CARE It's a myth that there's no point in using a premium gasoline if regular is recommended for your car It's true that engines built for regular gasoline will run line on regular for thousands of miles. But alter a while, deposits can bake on combustion chamber walls. Result: octane requirements go up. The engine may knock. You hear telltale "pinging. If this happens, the e,ngine can't deliver top performance without the extra octane of a premium grade fuel. That's the real lowdown. You can count on your Shell dealer for straight facts and honest •work. See him regularly. fe &. "4
