MEN DON'T GOSSIP!
SO "THEY SAY"
But that ain’t the way we heard it.
One feller tells t’other feller, and this fel
ler tells a friend of his, and his friend tells
his uncle, who tells his neighbor, who
comes to us and says . . . “Say!” he says,
“my neighbor tells me that Plymouth is
a mighty fine town and that the mer
chants there will do everything they can
to make a man feel at home in their
stores” . . . says some relatives are al
ways telling him about what a swell
bunch the merchants are and how well
satisfied they are to trade here.
We still say “Men don’t gossip”;
they’re just discussing actual facts. You
will become a member of the trade-at
home gang, too, when you give us an op
portunity to prove that we really appre
ciate your business.

Gasoline pioneered by Esso
Ever since 1935, when 100-octane gasoline was first
produced by Esso research, we have supplied it to
the U. S. Air Forces, and have turned over to other
refiners the working details they needed to make it
cheaply and quickly. And greatly to America's gain,
the improvements in plane and engine designs
take full advantage of this super-fuel.
