S. and Canada, where peace- loving good neighbors welcome you. But there's fight in the fish up there. "When the lights go on again, all over the world," you can steer for the Canadian Rockies or quaint Quebec, without even a passport. You'll need a car, of course, but re-designing and re-tooling for new cars will take long months. So for prompt recreation after hard-earned Victory you'll need your present car! But note: Rationed mileage that might eeem to conserve your car now, may actually be destructive, because it encourages the inroads of engine acid! You don't want that, and that's why to have your engine OIL-PLATED by changing to Conoco N«» motor oiL It's popular- priced but includes the modern synthetic whose strong "magnet-like" force attaches OIL-PLATING and maintains it — even for days — on inner engine surfaces, sort of "walling them off" from corrosive acid. Always produced by combustion, this acid was little worry when constant driving kept the heat on it. Yet now, despite aggravated conditions, acid can be still less worry! — because you can OIL-PLATE with today, for your engine's future. change State Bank, attended t bankers' meeting in Des Moine Sunday and Monday, Leander Studer, only son o Mrs. Irene StudeSf came horn Saturday night from the Ted Beb farm home where he worked a1 summer.
