waging and prices the world over going
skyward, there Is no doubt that sooner
or later the automobile will receive its

seems to have escaped the clutches of the
war gods. The large manufacturers are
working to meet the demands of their

The Maxwell Motor Company Is no ex

the greater the demand,", and at present
the Maxwell factories are being pushed
to the limit of production. Between 160
and 300 ears are shipped dally from the

FIREST0NES AGAIN HELP
TO WIN AUTO VICTORY
Word comes from Los Angeles that a
contest was held recently In that vicinity
which was conceded to ' be the greatest
event of Its kind ever held., Twenty-four
ivotor trucks of var'ous . lakes and clas
ses were pitted atalnrt each other In a
strenuous run of over 20 miles against
the heaviest kinds of odd.
starting at J.s Angles, they bora
southeast to I'.lverslde, tlicn north through
Itedlands and Kun I'.rrnardlno and then
westward again to Ix Angeles.
The best score was chalked up In favor
of a l.M)-poiind Menominee truck. In the
two days of travel they consumed about
sixteen gallons of gasoline, one quart of
oil and one quart of water. They made
the last ntnety-onn m'l In tour hours
and twenty-eight minutes. The driver
gives much of the credit for his victory
to tha behavior of the Firestone tires
with which the truck r a equipped.

Big Rubber Stock
At Old Prices
We secured in London the chief rubber

We had men on the groundmen with the
, cash when exchange was impossible and
shipping was stopped. And they secured at
old prices about 1,500,000 pounds of the
Goodyear grade of rubber.
That was most of London's supply of fine
rubber. It is now nearly all on the way to
us. Today we have men in the main supply
sources in Colombo. Singapore and Para.
And we hope to secure the best rubber as
needed, at no great advance in cost. -
Crude rubber prices in America doubled
when the war broke out. The European
markets were then closed. They were re
opened in a few days, however, and our
experts on the ground were the first to buy.
Prompt action secured for us the pick of the
highest grade rubber in London at approxi

war. This enabled ua .to offer users Good

Even at present high prices, it is almost
impossible to get extra-grade rubber now.
