Zosel Explains Merits of
Seiberling's New Pro- '
THE OREGON STATESMAN. SALEM, OREGON, SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 22, 1928
LATE MODEL PLEASING CAR
The motorist who starts out on
a tour will soon be as careful toi
take along his Seiberling Protect
ed Service certificates as he Is to
carry his driver's license, accord
ing to Mr. Zosel, of Zosel's Tire
Shop, exclusive dealers for this
territory In Seiberling All-Tread
"The idea that a car owner can
get any damage to his tires from
any cause repaired free of charge
naturally appeals to him." said
Mr. Zosel In explaining the above
prediction, "and it also appeals to
the conscientious tire dealer who
likes to be in a position to offer
real service to his customers. The
Seiberling Protected Service plan
is therefore becoming extremely
popular among Seiberling dealers
In all parts of the country, and
already 2,500 of us have arranged
to give this service to users of the'
"The plan is a perfectly simple
one. When a customer buys a
tire he is given a certificate which
!s good for twelve months. If the
tire is damaged during that period
by blow-out, wheel misalignment
accident or any other cause, the
owner, by showing his certificate,
can get the tire repaired free of
charge. If the damage is so great
that it cannot be repaired, he gets
a new tire at a price prorated on
the time the old certificate still
has to run; and with the new tire
he gets a new certificate good for
another twelve months.

Rubber Co. of Akron. O.. and any
Seiberling dealer can contract
with it and issue a certificate with
every lire he sells. These certifi
cates are good with any Seiber
line dealer who joins in the plan
ana J.5U0 have already signed up.
The result is that the motorist
with a Seiberling Protected Serv
ice certificate not only gets free
repairs from his local dealer but
is assured of the same service if

rrom the railroads' main lines
there are 23 side tracks leading
into Dodge Brothers works to
bring in the raw materials and to

the average 150 cars of incoming
freight and over 300 loaded cars
of outgoing freight. These would

miles of standard gauge track have
been built within the works.
A large force of traffic experts
are kept busy the year around to
guard against any delay either in

which would mean a shut down of
the works within a few days.

out. It is said that because of the!
