4 says a news dispatch from Wash
ington. - "Safety authorities -who are be
hind a nation-wide campaign this
month to reduce the toll ot auto

consideration has been given to
the enactment of regulations that
would provide a penalty .for the
use of dangerously worn . tires,
the dispatch continues.
- "It is now possible for motor
.registration agencies in several
states to refuse to give a license
for a car that is being driven on
tires that are down to the tread,
. on the ground that an unsafe ve
hicle may be refused registration.
It tsf believed, however, that a
specific law against driving with
dangerous tires would be more

"Safety authorities agree that.
- In the event of a tire blow-out,
the average motorist cannot resist
the impulse to apply the brakes
vigorously. The result la often to
turn Jthe car over, particularly If
the defective tire in on a rear
wheel. A front tire' blow-out usu
ally means a loss of driver con
trol, and at high speeds, the mo
mentum may carry the car com

v "The new series of Goodrich
: Silvertown tlre3, containing what
I tire engineers call the 'life-saver
Golden Ply,' was tested for
months in the 'torture chambers'
of the Goodrich laboratories at
Akron and then on the fastest
track In the United States.
! " Cars driven by impartial driv
ers were used for hours at high
J speeds equipped with the new
tire running against tires of the
old standard type. j

With 22 ( per .cent increase in
Dodge sales in 'the state, of Ore

this year over . corresponding
period of last year and a contin

four years,' says Russell Bone

"We have "sold and serviced
Dodge products in Salem for. Mar
lon and Polk county for sixteen
years," stated Mr, Bonesteele,
"and there has never been any
more enthusiastic reception of our
product tor some time. This. has
been more than gratifying In face
of the highly competitive market.
Automobile values are possibly
greater this year than can be
hoped for in the future and with
the advancing costs ot all com

their new cars at the present low
prices." states Mr. Bonesteele.
