SALINE WOMAN'S CLUB Extra Mileage, Extra Anti-Knock, Extra Power, Extra Dry, Extra Quick Starting— WHAT DO THEY MEAN "EXTRA" So many other gasolines are "Extra" this or ."Extra" something else that sometimes we wonder whether we shouldn't use some fancy phrases ourselves. And then we realize that all of the things that they call "Extra" are the very things which we consider essential to a really fine gasoline. To describe Dixie in their terms we'd have to /tell you that it is "Extra" Gasoline. We'd rather say it is good—and let you find the extras. STAEBLER OIL COMPANY Leave orders with J. G.
