He is a man of good judgment and well .qualified for the office which he seeks and will be a credit to Koasuth County. Vote.for G. W.

And on her civilian duties she doesn't go faster than 35—same as all other patriots. 35 gets you there without undue wear. But there's another battlefiront against wear at exactly 00 miles per hour! When your car's stock-still, with the engine starting cold, what's faster—your Winter oil or rampant Friction? You can have hopes—or you can have your engine Ott- PLATED by the quick simple change to Conoco N«" motor oil. Enriched by an added synthetic, this patented Conoco N'A oil seems to "magnetize" OIL-PLATING to inner engine surfaces as closely as durable plating on bumpers. Where does any good plating go during all-day parking or orer- night? It doesn't go. It stays. And neither does OIL-PLATING all go 'draining down to the crankcase at every chance. Long hours after you stop—long minutes before any oil from below could climb all the way up—the OIL-PLATING that's stayed up can be easing cold starts. This faithful OIL-PLATING is still there at 85, of course, aiding the high-duty liquid film of N'A oU to keep wear that much farther away. Not much chance now of changing to a new car.
