"With cold weather approach
ing, heating equipment shou;d
be checked andt conditioned for
safe winter service," S. W. Men
denhall, county agent for the
btave C 11. ge Extension Service,
warned today. Fire strikes with
out warning and it is not par

They're mighty good folks to have around . . .

good not just for the company, but also
Their extra measure of skill, experi
ence and job loyalty is setting amazing
records in production to help meet an
all-time record high demand for gaso
line and heating oil and other products.
One reason these extra-good workers
- are here today is simply the extra-good
jobs they have at Esso Standard.
Over 30 years ago, the company set up
an unusual "good jobs policy." It was
based on the belief that better jobs would
mean better workers, and that would
mean a better company.
Since then, with our workers, we have
developed plans which give every Esso
Standard worker such job advantages as
these: uniformly good utage scales ...
vacations with pay. ..special benefits in
case of sickness or accidents ... chance
to advance in the company... cash sav
ings in a Thrift Plan... fair treatment
at all job levels... and planned retire
ment with steady income assured forlife.
All this was done as a matter of good
business. It has given good business re
sults. Not a strike or major work disturb
ance in over 30 years. Steady, skillful
workers on the job. Records in production
when the country needs record supply of
product. Yes...they're mighty good folks
to have aro.und, from your point of view
