Even inside the first 10,000 miles, tests show, this increase can cause knocking and engine sluggishness. And this can happen to any out on the market today. , The cause of this is carbon—which cakes inside today’s compact combustion chambers, reducing their size. You can’t avoid such carbon deposits completely, no matter what kind of gasoline or oil you use. Shell scientists have developed a special type of gasoline—Shell Premiumfilhuf will auto- matically compensate for these carbon-created higher and higher compressions. This super motor fuel will produce maximum knock- frec power in the highest compressions your engine can develop. Because Shell Premium is a special blend of clean-burning gasoline fractions . . a patented, scientifically prepared anti-knock compound . . . and powerful alkylate (similar to that used in loo-octane aviation fuels). Whether your car is new or old, Shell Premium will give you greater power when you want it... new handling ease in traffic . . . cooler running. And to top all this, encellent mileage. Shell Premium costs more than “regular.” But if you drive the average amount, Shell Premium will cost you only about $1 a month extra. We recom- mend Shell Premium for the extra miles of new-ca performance it can give you. On sale at Shell Dealers and Shell Stations. SHELL Oll.

The way to avoid severe burn is to expose yourself to the sun in gradually increasing doseswa few minutes the first day, a few minutes more the next day, and so on. Any good commercial sun tan lotion will stop most of the rays that cause sunburn. So will a five per cent tannic acid solution, or a liberal application of olive oil or cocoa butter.

August 28 Date Set For Farmer The date for the Farmers: Field Day at the Western Washington Experiment Station has been set for‘xThursday, August 28, accord- ,ing to an announcement by J. W. Kalkus, Superintendent of the Station. Field Day this year is being held somewhat later in the season than has been the usual itors an opportunity to see the I various agricultural research, pro- jects in a somewhat different state of development than earlier Iin the season. It is hoped that this will materially increase the attendance. As formerly, the Station will furnish ice cream and coffee and I visitors are expected to bring their ,own lunch. The program of tours Iof experimental plots. and labora- {tories will start promptly at ten IA. M. and continue throughout the day until four P. M., with the usual time out for lunch. Many western Washington county agents are planning to as- semble visitors i icome in the form of a caravan. IThose who are interested in com- Iing to the Station, and this in- Ircludes all citizens who are inter— ;ested in the work of the Station. |as well as farmers, should get in ltouch with their local county I agent.

This year's pageant will bear the title “Sut- ter‘s Dream, A Rantasy” Deal added. The “Pageant of the Hills," as all in the Mother Lode have come to know the. gigantic spectacle, is expertly produced with a cast of more than 300 local citizens tak- ing part. This year‘s pageantry will go deeply into the life of Sutter, telling of his birth in Switzerland in 1803, his life in the Hawaiian Islands, his visit to Alaska, his history making activ- ities in the early days of Cali- fornia and the discovery of gold. The pageant will no presented on Friday night, August 8 and Saturday night, August 9, at the Rodeo Grounds on the highway between Sutter Creek and Jack- son. The three day celebration -will include such popular features as the spectacular Twilight Chil- dren‘s Parade, Coaster Derby, Queen's Ball, Grand Parade of dozens of floats units and a wide variety of street entertainment.

Ouch! In Revelstoke and; Golden we paid 36 cents a gallon for standard grade gas; Ethyl. was billed at 38 cents. In Cal»? gary we got it “cheap” at 301/13: cents. Of course the Imperial. gallon is a fifth larger than our: American gallon, and a ten per cent rate of exchange on money‘ should be considered, too, but even so that makes gasoline pretty; expensive across the border and makes it evident why so many Canadians ride bicycles. Gas: cannot be. sold on Sundays nor be- ‘ tween the. hours of 7 p. m. to 7i a. m, either. i The price of cars, too, is steep up there. Our car, a few dollars less than $1000 down here, costs over $1300 up there. So I don’t blame Canadians for riding bikes. A great many of them do, we. found. Evidence of the. intense interest.

I can’t tell you what color the water of Lake Louise is a slate—gray bluish-green perhaps would come as close as anything. The water is nearly opaque. We took a. canoe ride upon the lake and‘ could hardly see the tips of our paddles when we propelled our Every slight change in the light affects the color of the, water, sometimes it becomes a deep green, other times a deep blue. and all the shades between as the light from the sun varies. I wish I could thank a family from West Virginia whom we met at the camp grounds at Lake Louise for persuading us to change our original plans and go through Glacier National Park (the American park). It is a place worth going many miles out of onets way to see. v we found a grand public camp,- ing‘ ground along the Going-To- The-Sun highway on the shores of Lake. McDonald at .Sprague Creek.
