"It's Merry May! Vacation's Near--"

GET READY--GET SET WEEK!

It's Merry May! Vacation's near—
It's time to get your car in gear!
A Standard check-up—just the thing
To give your car vacation zing!
Then have your fun—without a care
For you'll find Standard everywhere!


WE SQUELCH SQUEAKS!

Before you go, give us a peek!
We know a way to squelch that squeak!
And when you treat your car to grease
You'll roll along in quiet peace!


BATTERY ON THE BLINK?
The batt'ry in the family bus--
Say--here's a job to leave to us!
We check 'em, charge'em, give 'em pep!
For this we've got a famous "rep"!


TIRES NEED AN AIRING?

Treat your tires to Standard care!
Let us check 'em--tread and air.
They'll last you longer--save you dough!
Service free, where'er you go!


HERE'S HOW AND WHERE!
Unless you're guided by a star
You need a road map for your car!
From Standard men, all maps are free--
So's travel dope--for any spree!


IS YOUR OIL UNHAPPY?

Say! Leave your work and care today!
You need a trip--for rest and play!
Before you start--here's a tip for you--
If you need a change, your oil may, too!


Getting your car ready for vacation is the theme of our final Travel Tykes Standard Oil newspaper ad that appeared in the Los Angeles Times in May of 1939. Mickey Mouse is joined by Donald Duck, the Three Little Pigs and the Seven Dwarfs in a poetic fanfare to an automobile check-up.
