TRUCK AND FORD
MIX AT KEALIA
Lefthanded driving received a
severe setback last Wednesday even
ing at Kealia when Joe Castro, one
of the foremost exponents of the art,
lost a decision with his Ford run
about to a truck belonging to the
Hawaiian Canneries Company.
Joe was proceeding along on the
wrong side of the road according to
his habit, it is alleged, and when he
came abreast of the Kealia Post
Office the truck loomed up dead
ahead. Joe put the helm hard a
starboard while the truck driver,
having no other place to go, pat his
helm hard aport. The lighter craft
swung straight across the bow' of the
freighter but did not have time to
clear. A crash of tin against steel
that vould be heard quite a distance
brought spectators from all parts of
Kealia. Fortunately the Ford jam
med under the truck and did not turn
over, so no one was hurt. The Ford
is now laid up for repairs and Joe
swears ho will no longer pattern his
driving after orientals.

Michelin Tubes being made full-sized fill the inside of the
casing1 even before inflation.
Other tubes, being smaller in diameter than Michelins, must bo stretched!
by inflation to fill the casing1. The flexing of these stretched tubjss under
constant tension when inflated causes destructive heating which kills all
the natural life and resiliency of the rubber, making it porous and less
resistant to cuts and punctures.
; Michelin Tubes, being-full-sized, are free from these disadvantages. Insist
on Michelins the full-sized inner tubes.
