the things that have been accomplished during the

As a city Tulsa has made wonderful progress
for which all loyal Tulsans arc thankful.
As a store the Palace has enjoyed a most suc

We resolve for the new year 1923 to continue

It is our wish that 1923 .
Our Federal Sales in 1921
showed an increase of 77.3
Our Federal Sales in 1922
showed an increase of 47.1
Our Federal Sales in 1922
showed1 an increase of 160.8
The above percentages are aclual figures
as compiled by an official .statistician.
THE percentages of increase in the sales of Federal Tires
during the past two years are figured on value of tires in
dollars. Since tires have decreased greatly in price during
this period it will be seen that in order to show such an increase
in dollars, it was necessary to sell three times as many Federal
Tires in 1922 as in 1920.
We thank our many friends and patrons for making possible
this remarkably creditable record.
