To the average owner, an automo
bile tire Is good only when It travels
many thousands of mile without
breaking down or blowing out. Very
few give a thought to Its car, with
the exception of Inflating It from time
to time, and a still smaller number
know what it Is made of.
A big tire concern has prepared
treatise on the foundation of one
which ahmtld he remembered by every
motorist. It Is as follow:
"Cotton fabric is th foundation up

It la used to glv stability and

Cords and Fabric Differ.
