Visit to Cantonment; Makes
Record Time on Bound
A fair record for cross country
' driving was hung up last week by
V. L. Killy of the Noyes-Killy Motor
company in a drive from Omaha to
Camp Funston and return. The drive
as made in a King Eight Foursome
and according to Killy the run down
and back was made in 16 hours and
40 minutes. The spedomcter reading
for the trip was 45 miles.
One of the features of this drive
aside from the excellent time was the
fact that the entire run was made
without shifting from high gear, ex
cepting of course stops in route which
are not counted against such a run.
In speaking of Camp Funston Killy
was very enthusiastic over the prog
ress made during the last six weeks.
Since visiting the camp six weeks
ago Killy asserts that there are at
least three times the number, of build
ings and that a marked improvement
has been made in all branches of the
work. The heating system has now
been perefected and conditions in
general seem much better.
Regarding the epidemic of men
ingitis Killy was informed that the
physicians had this well under con
trol by now. and that the danger of
its becoming a general epidemic was
low quite impossible.
V. C Hood, sales manager for the
King Motor Car company of Detroit,
iccompanied Killy oh the trip and
was ery much impressed with the
ictivities at Camp Funston. .

H. Pclton of the Franklin Motor Car
"When this scheme of publicity was
first outlined to me I, of course, saw
the possibilities from an advertising

a keen interest would be manifested
among motorists in general.

to watch the Franklin in operation

ever, and the contest will last until 6
o'clock Saturday, December 8. .
"We have been very anxious to
have a report from other dealers in
the United States who are taking part
in this contest, but so far no reports
have been sent us. However, through
estimates made, using as a-basis the

50,000 people throughout the United
States, have taken advantage of this

In connection with the recent an
nouncement of the opening of the
Gates Half-Sole Tire station in Oma
ha is made the statement that C. B.
Atwater, sales manager, will person
ally superintend the work done here
as well as act in an advisory capacity
in the matter of judging the fitness
of tires for this manner of repairs.'
According to Atwater the judging
of which tires are fit to be repaired
is of equal importance to the proper
repairing of a tire. Tires, like human
beings, can be injured to such an ex
tent that their chance for being put in
first class: shape again is very slim.
The ordinary wear on a tfre only af
fects the outer casings and it wears
through like the sole of one's shoes.
Some Fit to Repair.
A tire worn in this manner can be
repaired and put in such shape with
the half sole that it is as good or
even better than new.. On the other
hand, some tire injuries, such as bad
stone bruises, bad rim cuts, bad cuts.
etc., make it absolutely impossible tM
do a first class repair job that will
guarantee satisfaction to the cus
tomer. . .. - : y . .
If the carcass or foundation of a
tire is broken down it is almost im
possible to reclaim it by repairing.
Thus it will be Atwater's job to guar
antee satisfaction by telling custom
ers the. true condition of their tires
and what they can reasonably expert
from them if the half sole is applied.
The proper application of the half
solvthe buffing of the old casing and
the cementing, too,( are important
factors in this manner of tire repair.
Atwater , has had a very thorough
schooling in, this work at the factory
and has : been actively ' engaged in
service work for 'some time prior to
joining the Omaha firm. Therefore the
new firm hopes to build up a perma
nent arid satisfied following among

Helping Yom Helps Us
There is no claim of altruism for our offer of free
service on the Goodyear Tires vje sell.
It's true we give you the Standard Goodyear Serv
. ice apparently getting nothing in return.
But we do this, primarily, not for your sake but for ours;
, We want you to be absolutely satisfied with the tires'
you buy from usa If you are satisfied we know our
business will increase. If you are not satisfied our
business is bound to diminish.
And your satisfaction does not depend entirely on the
quality of the tires themselves. If it did there would
be no need of our giving yqu .service-r-for, as you
know, the quality of Goodyears is the very highest
No, your satisfaction depends equally upon the way
you use your tires, the interest that your dealer takes
in them after they are on your car, the jnspefcti9ns he
gives you, the advice and care,
In short, your satisfaction depends as much on serv
r ice as, on tires. Anci we, to be successful,-niust sell
satisfaction rather than tires.
This, then, is the basis of the Standard Goodyear, Serv
ice which you get from Goodyear Service Station
Dealers. . To help ourselves we help you. ,
If yoa have not already enjoyed this painstaking
service of willing helpfulness it is time now for you
to begin. ; ' ': ''r'r'yi' "'"v;'-v"
