better way could be
found to illustrate and
emphasize the usefulness of
the Standard Oil Company
(Indiana), and the broad
and varied service it renders,
than to take five minutes
and imagine a gasless year.
Think how our lives instead of being full
and complete thrdugh association with
•:v our fellow'men would be circumscribed by
the barriers set up by shank's mare.
Think how manufacturing would be ham
pered. How industry generally would
be crippled. How crops would go to
waste through inability to harvest, and
the leaps and bounds that the cost of liv
ing would take.
Instead of the natural expansion of busi
ness that comes from service and useful
ness, the whole structure of business
would be hampered through sheer inabil
ity to render to society that service which
society has been accustomed to demand.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is
public servant owned by 4649 stock
holders* no one of whom holds as much
as 10 percent of the stock.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is
doing a big job in a big way and has
grown great simply by reaping the re
wards that come from rendering the serv
ice demanded by business and society in
a manner satisfactory and beneficial to
the worid at large.
