Studying the molecular structure of matter and
the mighty forces of attraction existing between
liquids and solids, Conoco scientists are able to bring
motorists new and better oils. In fact, the force of
molecular attraction (basic force that holds things
together), will bond a special ingredient of Conoco
motor oil to your engine's working surfaces.
Thus they'll be oil-plated!
And because molecular attraction holds Conoco
oil-plating up where it belongs . . . prevents it from
all draining down to the crankcase, even overnight
you'll get these benefits:
added protection when your engine starts
added protection from corrosive action
added protection from wear that leads to
fouling sludge and carbon
added smooth, silent miles

HINSDALE— By H. F. Tuttle. Editor The Tribune
, Hinsdale, second largest Valley county town, was founded in
1887 when the Great Northern Railway came through Montana.
It was named by a clerk in the company's St. Paul office after his
home town. Originally located a mile east of the present site,
Hinsdale was moved to higher ground in 1895. It grew rapidly
during the 1910-15 homestead "rush" but saw hard times after the
first World War when many of its settlers went "broke." Develop
ing a stable agricultural economy from a combination of wheat
and cattle raising and sugar beet culture, Hinsdale has a popu
lation of 700—and looks forward to future growth, with an ex
cellent school system and adequate business section. It is one of
the few smaller towns in Montana which still have a bank, a
doctor and a newspaper. -
FORSYTH —By Donald McCausland, Editor The Independent
Forsyth, a thriving town of 1,700, was established in 1880 and
named after Gen. Forsyth, a figure in early Indian wars. Differ
ence of opinion exists here, though, as old-timers maintain the
town was given the name of an early-day surveyor for the North
ern Pacific, William Forsyth.
Forsyth, as county seat of Rosebud county, embraces in its
trading territory, the towns of Rosebud, Vananda, Ingomar, Su
matra, Ashland, Lame Deer and Colstrip. The city is sefved by
two railroads—Northern Pacific and Milwaukee,
directly on the Lewis and Clark trail. Highways 10 and 12 pass
through the city and highway number six enters Forsyth from
the north .
