What becomes of the miles you don't drive? Today undriven jnifav are war weapons. The rubber you don't use is airplane tires, antitank-gun treads, ^»achine-gun mounti, life raits, tank-interior pads, pontoons, and hot water bottles for field hospitals. Tha gasoline you don't use is fuel for fighter and bomber planes, for jeeps and tanks, for motor torpedo boats and armored cars. And more, the magic of the new petroleum chemistry takes the material, which formerly became gasoline, and Aladdin-lamps it into preciou: synthetic rubber and devaslalinr high explosive. The same intensive Phillips research which in peacetime was dedicated to improving Phillips 66 Poly Gas and Phillips 66 Motor Oil now, vastly increased in scope and faster in tempo, serves the Nation's victory program. In the same national interest, every patriotic driver is cutting his milei and his speed, making his car and his tires last longer and go farther.

Make certain to enlist his aid when you stop at any Orange and Black 66 Shield for Phillips 66 Poly Gas, famous for fast-starting pep and extra mileage ... and Phillips 66 Motor Oil, 100% paraffin base.
