Goodyear Company Man Says
Prevalent Habit Is Expensive
"It Is remarkable how few motorists
realise the danger of running their tires
In the car tracks." declares n. S Wll
fo.i, manager of tho service department
of the Goodjear Tire and Rubber Corn
Pan). "It Is true that a car runs easier,
and the jolts to the meehnnlsm are
greatly reduced. But it Is cxpenslvo
comfort. There Is no quicker way of
"The tread of a tire Is the thickest
part because there the greatest wear
takes place The sides have a thinner
wall of rubber to protect the fabric.
Now, when a tire is run In the car
tracks the wear is concentrated on the
side of the tread and the side walls.
The constant contact of the tire and
the Inside surface of the rail causes
abrasion or wearing away of the rubber.
The rail soon cuts through and mlns
"This practice of running in tho car
tracks Is alpo a commbn fault among
drivers of solid tire trucks. Only tho
outside edgo of the tire rests on the
rail, and consequently only a small part
of the tire sustains the whole load. The
result Is that the outside edge wears
oft while the rest of the tire is apparent
ly In good condition. Take a fine-Inch
solid tire. Constant running In car
tracks will wear off l' Inches of tho
surface, reducing It to a 3 men tire.
Thus a 3 Inch tire Is compelled to do
the work of a 5-inch, which amounts
practically to overloading.
This effect Is still more pronounced
wheie dual tires are used on the rear
wheels a few Inches of surface on one
tire being compelled to endure the strain
intended for the entire surface of two
'('ar tracks must be avoided if full
mileage Is wanted."

When Edward S. Bahcox, advertising

was Intensely Interested In the replica
of Solomon's Temple which the Ma

In an address which Mr. Babcox de
livered on April 13 before the adver

"In Washington," said Mr. Babcox,
"they are building a wonderful strue
tuie to be used as the Musonlr Con

approach to the building Is the great
i Sphinx carved out of solid stono. While
there the other day I saw ordinary
I workmen with heavy mallets and sledges
breaking on tne cornets of one of these
