IN the early days of automobile

to win every race-studied tires.
His consistent success led other
drivers to ask for tires constructed
to his specifications.
Twenty years of road and track
victories-with a steady and increas

-convinced Barney Oldfield that
these speed tests pointed the way to
a better tire for everyday use.
The enthusiastic reception of Old
field Cords by the public proved he
was right. Scores of the most
prominent dealers in the country
and many thousands of car owners,
experienced in the use of tires-bear
witness by their decided preference
that Oldfield is doing a bigger and
