H, R. Speck Gives -ldoa of
the Handling of Gasoline
Before Used

The roan who drives up to a
freen and white pump and has
ten or fifteen gallons of General
fUHolIne pumped into the tank of
his car seldom stops to reflect Just
bow far and in what ways that
gasoline has traveled before it gets
into the station of the independent
dealer, who supplies him, 'states
W. R. Speck, distributor of Gen
eral Petroleum Products.. 'J
"If we could foliow It from the
wells where it Is produced, per
haps In the Taft, California, field,
through miles of pipe line across
mountains and over deserts to the
refineries; ; thence j through -other
pipe lines to the harbor, where it
is pumped (into the huge ocean
going tankerB that: transport it to
the, storage tanks at Portland;'
.thence by rail to our distribution
tanks; thence by tank to the ser
vice station; and if he could see
all the care with which it must be
handled at every stage of its jour
ney, be could realize better just
what Is necessary to bring his gas
oline to him. I
"The pipe line department of
the General Petroleum Corpora-1
tion. has a mileage of over 400
miles in California! and last year
handled over 25,000,000 barrels of
V oil. In pumping j it over .the
mountains it is necessary to have
stations which heat the oil in the
winter so that it will flow more
I freely. Oil is routed and dispatch-
d through the pipe lines in much
the same manner that trains are
dispatched on the railroad. ; ,
"In thia connection, a recent re
port showed that I in connection
with Its pipe lines, the General
Petroleum". Corporation operates
approximately 1,000 miles of tele
phone and, telegraph wire, with
200 telephones and six telegraph
offices. With the aid of these in
struments and close observation of
tank gauges, the operators and e:-.
gineers are able to -i operate the
pumps in synchronism, and the dis-.
patcher is able to keep in touch!
with every barrel of oil In transit."

We have felt a pronounced
trend toward Willys Knight and
Overland products this year, not
particularly became of price but
because of the recognition on the
part of the-car . buying public ol
the values we have to offer. Theso
new pricee make this value moie
evident than ever before. :
j "On our standard production
they are the lowest ever reached
in . the history of the organiza
tion. .We are mdre than ever ; In
a; position of being able to serve
th price demands of betler than
7e of the entire car buying
public from one organization with
one basic source of responsibility,
j "This will add. to the strength
of our position and at the present
tme we rank as the,third largest
a,nd strongest motor car manufac
turing company In the world."
Police and sheriff's, depart
ments throughout the country are
fast turning to the motorcycle as
a! solution of handling their .fast
increasing traffic problems. This
swift, 'economical : means of trans
portation for officers In chasing
speeders, running down '-bootleggers
and drunken drivers has
made the motorcycle very popular
with all law enforcement depart
ments. '
j There are now 2433 depart
ments using Ilarley-Davidson
equipment in the United State3.
