Ideals that Doubly Benefit 'Tis only twenty short years since the Goodyear institution was but a man and an ideal. To-day the man and the ideal are still there-and in the last year Good-, year manufactured and sold more pneumatic automobile tires than any other institution in the world. Such swift progress leaves no doubt as to the benefit we have derived from the ideal on which our business is based. And that benefit has come to us only because the man who buys Goodyear Tires benefits first. With that one fundamental truth we started our business. And so long: ^^^^ business endures we will not depart from it. So you will find, as have thousands of other motorists, that Goodyear Tires incorporate more than mere honesty of material and skill of construction. You will find in them the goodness that is born of the intention of the maker to give value unusual. We believe that ultimately even a greater part of the motoring pubUc will follow the trend of modern motoring-that many more will come to Goodyear Tires. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company of Canada, Limited Goodyear Tires, Tubes and Tire-Saver Accessories can be obtained from Goodyear , Service Stations everywhere. Watch for this emblem and. enjoy the benefits of Goodyear Service wherever it is displayed. (JOOD YI.AU, iSiTvice Sunum! MADE CANADA 8454 ;
