You can laugh off your old doubt* about

form of lubrication which is not a mere
shifting temporary oil-film. For in ad-

Processed oil forms a stationary Oil-
The explanation is that patented
Germ Processing makes this oil really
plant itself on bearings, shafts, and up-
right surfaces too, such as cylinder walls.
Not even the good old Law of Gravity
can make Oil-Plating drain down- It's
always up there all the while your car
is parked, or showing its heels in the
open. None of that much-mentioned
starting risk for you ... No anxious eye
