The postponement of this price revision
is possible only because of our realization
of the price danger in the British Crude
Rubber Restriction Act which became
'effective November 1 1022. We were
fortunate in our rubber purchases before
the Restriction Act increased the price of
crude rubber I6O9&.
We have always endeavored to cham-
pion the cause of better made tires de-
livered at lowest 'cost to the tire user by
economic manufacturing and distribu-
tion. And we are glad of the opportun-
ity to give the car-owner the additional
saving at this time.
Firestone Cords embody certain special
processes which result in their producing
mileage records heretofore unheard-of
in the industry. Among the more im-
portant of these superior methods are
blending tempering air-bag cure and
Firestone Dealers are co-operating
with us in our movement to supply your
