Here's a BOOK that may NEVER be WRITTEN I T would have to be a big book—and it would be as exciting as a "best seller." There would be action on every page—with plenty of suspense that makes a good story. It would begin before the war, when, in spite of the depression, the railroads spent money to improve their service to peacetime America—buying new, more powerful locomotives — building new, more efficient rolling stock—laying new and heavier track—meeting spirited competition with traditional American enterprise. It would tell how every dollar spent for those improvements was a priceless advantage to this country, when suddenly America found itself plunged into world conflict. There would be chapters telling how the greatest transportation system in the world buckled down to its war job of moving armies and equipment fast and far, while continuing to handle essen- ItlaTcivilian iravel^Ahd the way shippers have f c6operaied, and people generally have adjusted themselves to the inconveniences of war-time transportation—that would be a thrilling story in itself. • Yes, the book may never be written. But we predict that the achievements it would cover will live in the grateful heart of. America long after the Axis tyrants have crumbled into for? gotten dust.

You'll be yearning to get away from headlines—rations—hours of volunteer war work.,.to get around again with your weary, happy soldier boy—home at last. And with driving restricted now, your car should have plenty of miles left, just iso you're not; tossing them away these days, by half-ruiningyour enginewith add. That's no "new scare," You neve* yet v •topped any auto engine without acid products of combustion trapped inside. But formerly, the frequent fast driving that fully heated the engine kept expelling acid. So the hazard was mild compared to what it is today, when acid works while your rationed engine rests. One great recognized precaution against this is to OIL-PLATE your engine by changing to Conoco ?J«i motor oil Jts epecjal added synthetic acts "magnet-like"—to attach on>nATWQ direct to precious inner parts. Much like body parts plated against atmospheric corrosion, the cylinders, rings, bearings and other parts now hard to replace are OIL-PL^TBD against internal acid corrosion. Theclose-)wrfacedoiL-pLATmo that combats acid while the oar stands,; will help your essential transportation to* day. And may a happier tomorrow see you right off quick on your well-earned Victory tour! Change to Conoco N"» o3 now. Continental Oil Company CONOCO MOTOR Oil Ball home.
