HOW TO GET FREE OIL FOR YOUR CAR. The secret to getting oil for your car either absolutely free, or at pennies per gallon is to realize that oil does not wear out, it just gets dirty. Remove the dirt and other particles from the oil and it will be like new. It will have all the lubricating qualities it had when new. How to make old oil like new: Boil 4 gallons of old oil. Add 1 pint of Liquid Silicate of Soda. Stir for 10 minutes then let it settle until the oil is clear. Remove the oil from the top. (Sediment & sludge will be at the bottom - avoid tipping the container to such an extent as to stir up the sediment). How to get old oil FREE: Go to the local filling stations and ask for their old oil. Usually you can have it for hauling it away. If you plan to sell oil to others, offer to pay the station owner or manager 5 a gallon for the oil. Furnish them with a steel drum to put the oil in. This will assure you of a steady supply. Explaining your business: Hillyard Corporation, 98 W. 4th Street, Elmira, NY 14901, has automatic equipment that reclaims oil if you decide to develop your business on a large scale. You might even consider renting garage space (lots of abandoned gas stations these days) and specialize in oil changes for a buck or two.

HOW TO EARN OVER $1,500 ON SOMEONE ELSE'S MONEY. Count your family member. Let s assume there are 6 of you. Check up on your bank credit and let s say you can borrow $6,000 for six month. On December 15th borrow the $6,000 and deposit $1,000 (the limit) for each of you in the Family Security Fund Taxpayers Aid Society, 107 N. Vance St., Pembroke, NC 28372. Details on how the fund works are FREE from the society. Your deposit is secured eight ways. The fund pays 12% for the use of your money from January 1 to May 30 at which time the money is returned to you with $720 interest. At that time you return the money to your bank. Since each member of your family is a first-time depositor in the fund, a bonus in each name of $150 will be left on deposit. Here is how you stand: Cost of $6,000 borrowed from your bank for 6 months = $270 interest from the fund = $720 net cash to you = $450 Bonus money left in the fund in your names = $900; interest in bonus money left in fund May-December 8%, 12% from January to May = $155.98 equals a total gain to you of $1,505.98. From January 1 to May 30 of the following year is 17 months. That figures out to be over $88 per month on someone else s money.

EIGHT SOURCES OF ALL-PROFIT ADS. A number of mail order dealers publish information folios that they will send your customers free for a stamped addressed envelope. They provide the ads which you circulate over your own name, usually asking $1 retail. Although called all-profit they are really 80% commission ads or circulars. (It will cost you a first-class stamp to send the order with a stamped-addressed envelope to the source. The source then stuffs the envelopes with orders and ads from his or her own products). The source for All-Profit ads hopes that your customer will then order something from him. His ad costs him only the labor of stuffing the envelope and printing of materials. Send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the following sources for samples of their all-profit ads and circulars together with full details of their offerings: B & N Sales, P.O.Box 1663, Newport Beach, CA 92660. JADA Associates, Box 587, Santa Cruz, CA 95060. Lew Card, Box 392, Brea, CA 92621. Carl T. O Shea, Box 700, Baldwin Park, CA 91706. Ambergate, 2887 Washington St., San Francisco, CA 94115.

HOW TO NEVER BE WITHOUT A JOB. I made this discovery in California, but the situation is probably true in all areas of the U.S. After working for several years on a dead-end job, I quit and found myself without a job and no idea as to what I wanted to do. I scanned the ads. One read Fry Cook Wanted. I once owned a 4x4 hamburger joint so I thought, Maybe I ll try it. I might have enough experience. I phoned the firm. The owner did everything but beg me to take the job. Not once did he ask me about my experience. I took the job. The pay was small but I enjoyed the work. I saw another ad, same story, but more pay - full fledged cook. In about one month, another ad offering $4 per hour (that was in 1970) same story, word of mouth opportunity - head cook, $700 per month salary. another Manager transferred job open, $1,200 per month. all this happened to me within 1 year - and I started with the ability to fry hamburgers and nothing else. Shortage of cooks? I don t know. All I know is that it s practically impossible for a restaurant to find or keep a cook. I have seen high school boys hire in as dishwashers and two weeks later start cooking. How can one learn to cook? Buy an egg pan and learn to flip eggs. This ability alone will get you a job. You don t have to be a cook just say you are and you ll never, never be without a job.

TEN STEPS THAT PUT YOU IN THE COMMISSION MAILING BUSINESS. 1. Order a rubber stamp with your name & address on it. 2. Send for free imprints (Commission Circulars) you pay only the postage for these. 3. Send for some free names that want big mail. 4. Buy 100 envelopes and 100 stamps. 5. Address the envelopes to the name wanting the big mail. 6. When you receive your circulars, stamp your name & address in the blank space on the commission side of the imprint. 7. Put one circular in each envelope. 8. Mail them. 9. When you receive orders take out your commission. 10. Forward everything else to the source. (the individual or firm) that sent you the circulars. AND YOU ARE IN BUSINESS. If you are serious about commission mailing you have to take time to look over each offer you receive. All you need do is follow the ten steps above. If you follow instructions be happy with $60 to $150 a week made in your spare time (from 2 to 4 hours each night and no less than 5 nights a week). Then you too can make money mailing. There is money in mailing - I know for I do it, but believe me, it is not as some advertise it (by samuel james). You will not get rich overnight. You won't make $50,000 and work only one hour each week. NO! You invest and grow as big as you wish, but always stuff each envelope FULL.

COMMISSION CIRCULARS FROM YOUR PRINTER. Selling $1 items and paying you 50% commission on every order you receive. Have your name printed on them - it will save hours of stamping time. Then mail 100 each to 50 Exchange Mailers in 50 envelopes mark them- X-10-SY which means Exchange 100 send yours. When you receive 100 circulars from each of the exchange mailers in return, mail out one each in 100 envelopes. This way, 150 envelopes mail your 5,000 circulars. If you have a good circular offering a popular seller and the exchange mailers you sent yours to are honest and dependable you should receive 2% returns. This will bring you $50 profit. That is the complete plan. IT WORKS. It is working every day for many mailers.
