Doeg yonr motor gasoline hare
an unusually; strong odor? Then
don't condemn It out of hand; that
smell may be your life insurance
policy and. at least, it Is a pre
sumptive guarantee of the quality
of the stuff.
Such are the assurances given
by A. F. Semino, the well known
California oil engineer. , In a re
cent address he explained thi$: J
"Odor should not be congldired
at all In connection with motor
gasoline. Unless there are leaks
of gasoline, or of gasoline vapors,
the odor will not be perceptible.
Andleaks tof course are dangerous
from another direction. In fact, a
strong odor might be considered
in the light of a safety factor that
will make known dangerous leaks.
"In view of the naturally strong
odor of cracked gasoline, and the
known good qualities of that, prod
' uct, a mild odored gasoline will on
the face of It be suspicious as one
free from the desirable cracked
"Moreover, the more volatile
the components of natural and
other gasolines the more powerful
will be the odor,- so here again
strong odor Is rather an indication
of good quality, Ibejfng a sign r of
the presence of the more volatile
constituents so. much desired and
needed in proper proportion ' in
order to give pep and snap to the
gasoline in use. ,
''Besides all this those constit
uents that give odor are combust!
ble and help to give power to the
gasoline. It is therefore wasteful
of, natural resources to remove
them from the gasoline. ; This ;Of
course does not apply to those con
stituents that have bolh a ; bad
odor and also show such , detriv
mental qualities as ' corrosion of
gum deposits. All; good refiners
will, of course, remove these dele
terious constituents" order that
their product may be of satisfac
tory quality in these other char
acteristics. "Nevertheless, since these detrir
mental constituents are by. no
means- all, nor ' even the largest
proportion of the odorous constit
uents of gasoline, the odor should
not be the characteristic consider- J
ed In the specifications, but the
dine In rigidly f adhering to his
policies fn the face of com peti
tion, botb"fairt and unfair, has re
suited in the building up of a'
business that had a turnover ot
over $11,000,000 In 1825.
"In building up this chain of ae-i
cessory stores, acknowledged to be
the greatest organization of its
kind in the world. Mr. Pepperdlne
was ably assisted by his wife, Mrs.
L. R. Pepperdlne, who since the
very start of . the business has been
actively associated with it in an.
executive capacity and works just
as ard as her husband, Mrs. Pep
erdine is Vice-President and
Treasurer of the concern and has
the reputation of being one of the
most able financiers jp the West.
: Mr. Pepperdine, In commenting
on the sale which will inaugurate
the anniversary celebration, stated
that one of the reasons for his
Company's success was the, fact
that they were able to sell, and
consistently did sell, standard au
tomobile equipment at a price that
