Some of the text in this Vintage Ad:
CAPT. EDDIE RICKENBACKER, chairman of the board, Eastern Air Lines, dean of the air transportation industry. World War I “Aces of Aces,” World War II hero.
THE MIRACLES THAT FREEDOM WORKS
``It’s America's mission to show the world what
free men can accomplish. For instance, our incredible
progress in aviation is powerful proof of the
practical miracles that free men, competing in a
free enterprise system, can produce.
"Progress like this is the very
essence of America. Every individual,
every industry contributes
to it. Look at what our
oilmen have done: The gasoline
that `powered' my Spad
fighter in World War I would
stall your car today and wouldn't
even turn a propeller on a mod-
"No one man or company could
improve fuels so much-so fast.
It takes the research of many
men in many oil companies-
all competing in the search for
a better product at less cost for
"As long as our competitive
system stays free and healthy,
oilmen will meet every challenge.
By 1959, they'll be ready
with the vast supplies of special
fuels needed for our new fleets
of jet airliners which will take
you from New York to Florida
in 2 hours and around the
world in 40 hours.
"We must guard this freedom
of competition well. America's
leadership in the jet age will
grow out of our freedom of competitive
enterprise, created by
the free people of this country
to keep America growing, secure
and strong. Remember,
only the strong can be free."
Eddie Rickenbacker [Signature]
