OIL BARONS BEWARE!
We receive at frequent intervals mysterious cards containing various irrelevancies but ending up by telling us that you can now lubricate without oil. How? The cards say by using “DU” with P.T.F.E. What’s that? Is it the end of oil wells, sump draining and oil-millionaires? We don’t profess to know. Who does? Presumably the Glacier Metal Co. Ltd., of Alperton, Middlesex, who supplied bearings for racing cars such as Ashby’s, Rileys and Alfa Romeo pre-war and are now associated with this, to us, mysterious “DU” with P.T.F.E.
