query from a labor union, said to
day there was no state law requir
ing that national guardsmen be given
preference for day work in indus

it has a contract with a certain com

placed on the day shift all employes
who were national guardsmen.

COINJOCK, Jan. 15— (•£>) —J. M,
Broughton of Raleigh, gubernatorial
candidate, said tonight that North
Carolina would need able leadershif
in the next few years "to avoid a!
most an economic catastrophe.”
Speaking before the Elizabeth City
Rotary club at a good-will meeting

‘‘leadership of the state and tht
spirit of its people will be tested
severely in the coming years.”
"We are going through a drastic
change of our economic and agri

crop for this year has already beer
drastically cut and statements were
made a few days ago by leaders tha1
even this reduced crop will probably
bring a very low price.
"Cotton has lost its stimulating
foreign market to a large extent
These circumstances will mean i
high percentage of agricultural un
employment and will affect the wel
fare of nearly 70 per cent of oui
people. In fact, the whole standarc
of living in our agricultural areas i:
involved in the struggle that wil
have to be made in the next few
years.”
A 10 years program for prosper
ity, drafted by the Southern Gover
nors’ conference, is an “admirabli
approach” to the solution of thi
agricultural and economic problems

The defendants had styled

advocated was “a” Christian

■ the New England group was entiri

edge of the New York conspiracy,
and he added:
"If any of our members ever
pulled such a stunt, they would be
tossed out by the neck."
Boston police swung into action
with a raid on New England front
headquarters, seizing membership
cards and pampnlets which Police
Superintendent Edward \V. Fallon
described as "evidence that the
group was anti-Semitic.”
Fallon reported finding "no evi

ary plans by the Boston front.
Three separate investigations in
the New York area were ordered:
By Maj.-Gen. William N. Haskell
on behalf of the state’s national'
guard — focused on the fact that
five of the 17 under arrest are mem
bers of the guard:
By Gov. Herbert H. Lehman in
Albany;
And by United States Attorney
Harold M. Kennedy in Brooklyn.
Aside from Mayor LaGuardia’s
chuckle, no comment was forthcom

the alleged “revolutionaries” them

Advertising writers can’t make gasoline.
A bombardment of claims and counter claims has
broken loose—and it may confuse the purchaser of
gasoline.
Since the public has a right to be accurately informed
about the gasolines sold today, the American Oil
Company wishes to make a statement of policy regard
ing its regular gasoline and special motor fuel.
Comparing the quality of crude is not enough. Com
paring anti-knock is not enough. It is the sum total of
all the desirable quality characteristics that makes a
good gasoli le or motor fuel.
This constitutes the only real yardstick for compari
son. Fair comparisons should take in every quality a
f good gasoline or motor fuel should have.
During the 29 years of its existence, the American
Oil Company has not found it necessary to change the
names of its products. Throughout all of this period, it
has kept faith by constantly improving its products.
The American Oil Company has the largest and most
modern refining units in the world.
The achievements of its scientists and engineers have
been recognized as among the most important advances
in chemical engineering.
The American Oil Company has the resources and /
facilities to furnish the best products and the highest
values obtainable from crude petroleum.
We know what goes into Amoco-Gas and American
Gas. We know these products never have had—and still
do not have—any equals in their respective fields. Re
gardless of competitive claims, we say this unqualifiedly
and without reservation.
As to American Gas, we sell it for exactly what it is
—a pure, “sweet,” 100% petroleum product. It is not
“hopped up” with added chemicals which are not com
bustible. Its full range of quality characteristics comes
from petroleum only. We don’t try to make it a premium
gas by merely calling it one. American Gas is the best
buy at regular gas price.
As to Amoco-Gas, it is our premium motor fuel. It
costs more to make. It’s worth more. It does more. It
must sell for more. You can not get a real premium fuel
at a regular gas price. Amoco-Gas is instantly recog
nizable as a premium motor fuel by the velvety smooth
ness of the car’s operation. '
You can’t get something for nothing. We have faith
in the inherent common sense of the motorist—and in
his ability to separate fact from claim.
American Oil Company products are the finest ob
tamable. They are backed by the entire resources of the
American Oil Company, and accepted by the public as I
honest values, honestly described. }
The remarkable increase in the sales of American Oil
Company products proves that the motorist continues '
to be discriminating and alert in recognizing the “Sign
of Greater Values. ’’
