COME ON IN
THE MILEAGE IS FINE
If you're tired of being kidded about low-cost
tire mileage, and really want to get it, let me
fijc you. up now with a set of new Gcodyears.
Quality considered Goodyears are the lowest
cost equipment you can buy, and you will have
the satisfaction of knowing that no one gets a
better tire or a better price than you do.
No "special deals," no "extra discounts," no
"lorig trade" line of taffy here just a mighty
good tire at as low a price as I can afford to
You'll have a lot I'll make a little and we'll
both be happy. Come on in the mileage is fine.

eode will find that he knows the
rules of the road in many states.
This fact in itself will prove most
beneficial to the auto drivers of

which covers the Rules of the Road, follows:
