Chicago, July 25. All chance
of further spread of the rail
road strike was squelched today
when the general chairman of
the brotherhood of clerks and
freight handlers meeting here
agreed to hold up any further
orders for walkouts.
Strikes of clerks and freight
handlers have already been or
dered on a few roads.
Union leaders were In touch
with members of the railroad
labor board shortly before the
agreement was reached and
their strike call was suspended
under a compromise with the
board to consider immediately
requests for a wage increase.
The labor board announced
that with the clerks' decision,
all unions which have taken
strike votes and threatened a
walkout, had agreed to hold up
immediate action in .sympathy
with the shopmen's strike.

Effective July 20th, Goodrich establishes a revised
price list that is a base line of tire value. It gives the
motorist the buying advantage of knowing that what
ever sire tire he selects is of the same quality the
Goodrich one-quality standard. It gives him the long
est mileage, the most satisfactory service and the high
est quality his money can buy. Results will prove that
it is impossible to buy tire mileage at lower cost.

that the railroad executives would
