I time. The Cash Value of Tractor Power "rTIME is the essence in good farming", ,[writes Frank I. Mann, one of the most successful farmers in the United States. "'To judge the value of a tractor on the farm it must be considered in relation to its ability to do farm work at the time to give most profitable return from the crops grown." Mr. Mann goes on to show that farm work is subject to continual delays from adverse weather conditions, and the one great ad- vantage of the tractor is in enabling the Farmer to handle peak loads on time. In one case cited, tractor power enabled the farmer to sow a good acreage of spring wheat on March 23, which early seeding gave him a return of 44 bushels per acre, thus illustrating the cash value of tractor power. A tractor to do its work must have petro- leum products. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) takes great pride in the fact that its organization is able to supply the needs of these tractors in 10 Middle Western states with petroleum products of superior quality. No matter how unexpectedly the farmer's peak load may arrive, he will find that this Company has ever ready at his call such gaso- line, kerosene and lubricants as he may need. Owing to the isolation of many farmer and farming districts, this task of supplying pe- troleum products at dependable intervals is a big and often an exceedingly difficult one. Nevertheless, the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), inspired by its obligation to the communitY, has always met rural needs for petroleum in a big way. The Company con- stantly is extending its operations to provide facilities which under all conditions enable it to meet the demands made upon it, and to guarantee a reliable and sustainod service even in+periods of strew.
