The best way to compare varieties and decide which ones suit you the best is to see them growing side by side in a soil and climate similar to yours. That's why DeKalb has more than 3300 proving grounds or demonstration fields, throughout the corn-growing areas. Gene Hood, Algona/Iowa C. V. Mangle, Lfrermore, la. M. L. Besch, Whittemore, la.

Some authorities say that the defeat of the Luftwaffe can be credited chiefly to a difference of only 13 points in octane number/ While the Germans had only 87 octane aviation gasoline, the good planes and gallant pilots of the R. A.F. had 100 octane. This gave the Royal Air Force reduced fuel consumption, and greater horsepower for faster climbing . . . greater altitude . . . extra maneuverability. Phillips and the American petroleum industry are 1 today supplying great quantities of 100-plus octane • gasoline. This super-fuel increases enormously' the nghting effectiveness of U.S. and all United Nations war planes. No wonder the British Prime Minister is never more confident than ' Mm MiniKCT Wlniton Churchill, iddmiing th« joint Icuion of Contra* Wuhuigton, Mi? 19,1MJ when predicting great air offensives to devastate Germany and Italy, to lay "the cities and other munitions centers of Japan in ashes." Thanks to its long-range program of peacetime research, Phillips Petroleum Company was one of the first to take 100 octane aviation gasoline out of the laboratory and into mass production. The making x>f these American super-fuels is not merely a refining process; it is actually the synthetic production ofchemicalsl That is why we say: Every time you see the Phillips 66 Shield, let it remind you that Phillips refineries, in addition to producing gasolines, lubricants, and fuel oils, are also gigan'k c!::mical plants pouring out wea- -. for victory.
