WHATEVER IT IS Depression, Recession, or Suppression, [ am going right along buying every good close-out 1 can find. I enjoy handing these blessings out to our many good faithful customers. Just today Mr. Larson, head man in the house, made a special trip to see me on bedroom slippers. He did not send one or his traveling men. He came himself. When he left he had orders for 2,000 pairs of slippers. They will be here Friday of this week. The reason I buy in such large quantities is to get the price. The boys say 1 am crazy to buy so much at a time but, you know, sometimes you make money by acting crazy. If I am crazy then there are a lot of people in this community that are crazy, for they buy these snaps as fast as I put them on sale. I like toisee things move and I put prices on shoes and furnishings that make them move. I like people that work. I hate a lazy person. An idle brain is the devil's work shop. There is only one man in the United States that I would like to see quit work. I wish President Roosevelt would send Congress home, and then go fishing for the rest of his term. Then each one of us would know what we had to do and would make arrangements to do it. We would soon get confidence in each other and in the good farms of Iowa, where the tall corn grows. Forget a lot of these Congressmen and others that are shaking hands with the farmers with one hand while their other hand is in the pork barrel. All they think of is holding their jobs and filling their pockets. Most of them are a bunch of yes-men. They are experts at finding some new painless way to tax the people. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Well, we' are still alive. Our liberty is pretty well curtailed, and the pursuit of happiness is taken from us entirely. Jimmie Neville P. S. Pursuit of happiness is the privilege of making money. with Mrs. Gordon Giddings in Des Moines. The Hansons have cared for the Giddings baby since its birth in January.

Wits the High Spots Your modern motor needs an oil that really means business ... an oil with a film tough enough to resist tearing by surface projections ... an oil that actually hits those high spots on the journal and bearing surfaces, and polishes them down to mirror smoothness. That's the way to reduce friction-drag and heat, and that's why we suggest Phillips 66 Motor Oil. It sure lives up to the Phillips reputation for greater value. Gives high- degree oiliness because refined from a costlier 100% paraffin base crude. So you save two-ways with Phillips 66 Motor Oil, the economy champion: It costs less because it does more and lasts longer. And it helps keep your car out of the repair shop. Next time, drain and refill with Phillips 66 Motor Oil. It's concentrated! ... This year's big value in car lubrication. Look for the Orange and Black 66 Shield. HARMS OIL CO., Distributors, Algona.
