Cadillac Ads Are
To Be Copyrighted
Some of the national advertising
announcements of the Cadillac com
pany will bear the significant legend,
This is a development so unusual
that the explanation of K. P. Drys
dale, advertising manager of the Ca
dillac company, will prove of interest
to those who study advertising
which means a very considerable por
tion of the male population of Amer
ica. "The Cadillac company," says Mr.
Drysdale, "has consistently endeav
ored to make its advertising as in
dividual as its manufactured product.
"To that end, we have not hesitated
to ignore- advertising precedent, to
depart from the conventional when
conditions seemed to demand such
deoarture. and to establish our own
standards of advertising interest and
"Some of these announcements have
attracted extraordinary attention.
Several of them seem to have been
endowed with eternal youth, and have
apparently become a permanent part
of the business literature of America."

Resta did a little wresting on his own
hook when he outsped all the other
noted speed kings in the winning of
the 300-mile derby and carried off the
first honors. He moved around the
track at a clip that would lead one
to believe that he had wrested some
lightning from somewhere and had
a plentiful supply in his car.
There's one thing that helped keep
first priie. That was the proper kind
of lubricant. Resta's car, as hereto
fore in his wiiininsr career, was lubri
cated throughout with Dixon's Graph
ite automobile lubricants.
Slight Difference Between
Weight of New and Old Tires
"As a result of tests recently made
in our factories it has been definitely
ascertained that the actual difference
in weight of new tires and those
which have gone to the scrap heap
is very slight indeed," said J. H. Lion
berger, branch manager of the Fisk
Rubber company. "In other words,
tires scarcely wear away at all during
their entire period of use unless
wheels are out of alignment or some
other unnatural cause exists."
"The reason for a termination of
a tire usefulness! therefore, lies else
where than in the composition, for
mation or thickness of Us tread."
Reo Dealer Sees Popular
Demand for High-Priced Cars
J. W. Opper of the Jones-Opper
company asserts that the six-cylinder
cars are becoming more and more
popular. "The time was when our
dealers hesitated to take the big cars,
hut were more enthusiastic over the
"The situation is changing now,
though. Buyers are not so much
afraid to invest in the more expensive
models. Our business on Reo cars
has been more than we anticipated."
Resta's Racing Car Tires
Arrive at Goodrich Branch
An express shipment containing
Resta's Goodrich cord racing tires has
been received at the Goodrich branch.
W. S. Ruthford, manager of the
Omaha branch, asserts that these are
the tires which Resta will use in the
Umaha Auto Speedway races July 15.
