Shop the easy way, Clasit'ieds The only totem pole we ever bought Strange purchase? You'd be surprised at all that Standard buys.., and where! The totem pole, carved by Chilkat Indians for our new Alaskan Refinery--Alaska's first refinery-- depicts the story of oil in the 49th State. While it's one of the most unusual purchases we ever made, it illustrates a Standard Oil Company of California policy: To support local businesses and comraunities with local purchases. The Chilkat clan was one of the more than 18,000 manufacturing, transportation, research and our marketing requirements last year. Our annual shopping list is more than 50,000 items long, and it helps many a small, local business to prosper. Yes, even the money Standard pays for this space in your newspaper is another example of local spending. By bringing dollars into your commu- suppliers who filled our exploration, producing, nity, it also helps you.   Planning ahead to serve you better STANDARD OIL COMPANY OF CALIFORNIA
