are taking shape in what one will J
predict to be a team that will be ^

particularly looking good. Rantin.

the fellows holding down the

ing good at the plate. Kirkland is
the outfield's pep as he is in good
thape and is not doing bad at the
plate Other boys deserving praise

What's behind the "Esso" Sign?. . .
Thousands of motorists know the red-white-and
blue ESSO Oval as "The Sign of Happy Motoring."
It is their roadside mark of quality in gasoline and
motor oil, of fine Atlas Tires and Batteries and other
But perhaps the most outstanding thing behind
the Esso Sign is not just the great laboratories and
refineries of Esso Standard Oil...
Instead... the greatest and most unusual thing
behind that familiar sign is probably just the people
who work at Esso Standard Oil and
the kind of jobs they have!
Workers who have not had an im
portant strike or labor disturbance in
over 30 years! ...Workers who today
average over 14 years apiece of serv

regular, paid vacations each year.
Workers with good wage scales and steady work.
Workers with retirement income assured for
life. Workers with opportunities for advancement,
with company training to help them get it!...
These and other unusual employee benefits result
from Esso Standard Oil policy that was set up many
years ago. It is a policy that believes good jobs draw
and hold good workers.
And it's a policy that gets worthwhile results for
all concerned? including, right now, the greatest pro
auction and delivery of petroleum
products in our history. The better
you live, the more oil you need, and
today we and all the oil industry are
straining every facility to meet your
record needs for gasoline and oil in
