Dear Mr. Harrington:
Last year the Reliable Oil Company spend almost 2 hundred million dollar on exploration.
About 71 percent of the oil we re-find was from new wills we had drilled within the past 5 years.
Unless something unpredictable happens, we will spend considerably more for exploration this
year.
We believe it would be an indefensible mistake to depend almost completely on someone
ells to produce enough oil to keep or refineries running. The only sensible way to avoid this
mistake is to produce more our self.
Consequently, our engineers who want throughout the world. Our employees are
coincidently looking for untapped sources of energy. We won’t be satisfied until we have
improved substantially our raw material base.
If you would like to have further information about our efforts to increase our countries
future sources of energy, write to our directory of public relations, Doctor Frank Lang. He will be
glad to send you one of our descriptive booklets.

Dear Mr. White:
The places where men can shop for clothes fall into two distinct types. First, there is the
impersonal has to shop for himself. No one offers to help him. Indeed, after he picks out what
he wants, he sometimes finds it almost impossible to find a person to take his money.
Then there is the store like the Harrisburg Men’s Shop where a man can get as much or
as little help as he desires. When he entries he is greeted immediately by a sales representative
who offers help. If he wants to browse, the representative disappears and reappears only after
customer has decided what he wants to purchase.
If this is the kind of service that appeals to you, come to the Harrisburg Men’s Shop at
421Worth Street. You will have a delightful, enjoyable shopping experience.
Cordially yours,
