When war began we resolved to keep our factory wheels moving. And now the new War Tax, severe as it seerris to some, has only fired our determination more. By March 1 we double the capacity of our plant at Bowmanville, Ont. And instend of raising our prices we announce a, radical reduction. Yet every particle of material that goes into Goodyear automobile tires is subject to the war tax. And this its pay this extra cost'. We will also give the user more hi tire valuelhan his money ever bought before. DUE TO GAIN In other years as rubber came down in price, we lowered our lire prices. As men and methods improved, we improved Goodyear quality. To give you the utmost at the lowest fair margin of profit lias always been Good- year's business-relation. As our output multiplied, reducing factory cost, our prices came down with it. Last year alone the sales of Goodyear Made.-in-Canada tires were 29 per cent, greater than the year before. Men bought, in numbers, more thun one Good- year (ire for every car in Canada. We offer as a as certnin evidence that proves how Goodyear tires are win- ning pluralities throughout Ihe Dominion. It shows why we double our capacity. It shows why we can lower prices this way. For this is our Ihird reduction in less than two years. And these three Goodyear reductions have saved you a total of 37 per cent, on tire prices. EXCLUSIVE FEATURES Men call them Goodyear Fortified Tires be- cause in five costly ways they combat tire trouble. And these are Goodyear other maker has them. You get them regardless of price reductions. Please learn these are listed here: Fortified against our No-Rim-Cut feature; against blow our On-Air Cure; against loose many rubber rivets; against 126 braided piano .wires; against punctures and our double thick AH-Weathcr Tread. For a long, long time most tires have sold much above Goodyear's prices. Some makers have asked you one-third higher. A few have sold lower and always will, because of less rubber, less science in construction. But we give you now, as we have always, more for the money than any rival tire can offer. We can do it, remember, because of the large number of men that Goodycars are winning. Then also because we are content with small profit per tire. This policy, in four short years, has put these tires at the top. Ask Your Dealer for our New Price on the size you buy. THE GOODYEAR TIRE RUBBER GO., of CANADA, LTD. Head Office: Toronto, Ont.
