ON SALE OF TIRES
Come one, come all.
The Bob Cooke Motor company,
local Goodyear tire dealers calls at
tention to the following order from
the O ffice o f Production manage
ment, relative to the sale of tires.
"General restrictions on sales and
shipment: Except to fill purchase or
ders assigned an A-3 car or better
preference rating from the date o f is
suance o f this Older until Sunday,
January 4, 1942 no new automo
bile, truck, bus uv motorcycle, farm
implement or other type o f casing or
tube shall be sold, delivered or trans.
feiTed provided that the foregoing
prohibition shall not apply to tires
which are sold as part o f new or used
vehicles at time o f their sale."
The OPM further states in a wire
to the Goodyear Tire and Rubber
company: “ In the interest o f the least
possible dislocation o f business we
suggest that you appeal to dealers
and to the public to give their full
cooperation to make possible future
sales o f tires. There aie no restric
tions on the retreading of tires, or
sale of retreaded tires or used tires.
At this time it is important that ade
quate facilities for taking care of tire
needs o f consumers be provided for
by tire dealeis, since the sale of
tires after January 4th will be
limited as compared to previous
years. Anything that you and your
associates can do to promote the con
servation o f rubber thru the proper
care and use o f tires will be of tre-
menduous importance.. For the fact
is that we must regard you and your
dealers as the guardians o f America’s
stockpile of rubber.”

gether with all other Goodpear tire
dealers is whole-heartedly coopérât,
