There exists now a new, compelling
reason for buying Goodyear tires. It re
sults from War conditions.
These leading tires built of extra-fine
rubber, in the snmc way as always are
selling today at June-prices.
You will find today a very wide difference
between mot tire prices and Goodyears.
Due to Quick Action
Kurly in August when wnr began tho
world's rubber markets seemed closed to us.
Hubbcr prices doubled almost over night.
JIon could sco no way to pay for rubber
abroad, nnd no way to biing it in. Wo, liko
others in that panic wcro forced to higher
prices. But wo have since gone back to prices
wo charged beforo tho war, and this is how
we did it:
We had men in London and Singapore when
the war broke out. Tho lnrgcr part of the
world's rubber supply comes through there.
Wo cabled them to buy up tho pick of the rub
ber. They bought beforo tho advance 1,500,
000 pounds of tho finest rubber there.
Nearly all this is now on the way to us.
And it means practically all of tho cxtra-grado
rubber obtainable abroad.
Today we havo our own men in Colombo,
Singaporo and Para. Those aro tho world's
chief sources of rubber. So we are pretty well
assured of a constant supply, and our pick of
tho best that's produced.
We were first on the ground. We were quick
est in action. As a result, wo shall soon have in
storago an almost record supply of this extra
grade of rubber.
And wo paid about Juno prices.
Now Inferior Grades Cost Double
About tho only crude rubber availablenow
for many makers is inferior. In ordinary times,
tho best tiro makers rcfuso it. Much of it had
been rejected. But that "off rubber" now sells
for much moro than wo paid for tho best.
Tho results aro theso:
Tire juices in general arc far in advanco of
Goodyears. And many tiro makers, short of
supplies, will bo forced to uso second-grade
Be Careful Now
In Goodyears wo plctlgo you the same grade
tiro as always. And that grade won for Good
years the top placo in Tiredom the largest sale
in the world.
And, for tho time being, our prices aro the
samo as before tho war. We shall try to keep
Wo accept no excessive orders, but dealers
will bo kept supplied. And wo chargo them,
until further notice, only ante-bellum prices.
That means that Goodyears the best
tires built are selling way below other tires.

James A. Patten Tells of His Es
cape From Europe.
Chlcagoan and His Wife Suffered
Hardships in Their Thrilling
Flight From Carlsbad
Now York James A. Patten, tho
former wheat operator of Chicago,
who was ono of tho American refugees
returning by tho Hed Star liner Fin
laud, told u thrilling story of his es
cape from Germany after war had
been declared. With Mrs. Patten ho
left Carlsbad on August 2 and traveled
via Uorbesthal and Llego, where they
arrived Just as hostilities had begun.
"Wo left Carlsbad for Nuromburg by
train, as tho authorities took my auto
mobile," said Mr, Patten. "Wo did not
know tho war had broken out then, as
no news of tho situation was given
out In Carlsbad.
"Trouble began as soon as wo
struck tho German border. We reached
Nuromburg nt 9 p. m. nnd were
promptly turned out of tho train nnd
arrested as spies. My wlfo and I wero
taken to tho police station and cross
oxamlned. I showed what credentials
1 had, but It was not until the Ameri
can consul hero showed up that wo
were released, two hours later. A
great crowd which had gathered out
side, expecting possibly to seo us ex
ecuted, hooted us as we left tho sta
tion. "Wo wero ablo to got a train to
Cologne however, Into which city
thousands of troops were pouring
when wo arrived. Wo got a train sup
posedly for Ostend, but wo wero
stopped at Herbesthal on tho Dclglan
border. Wo had to get out of tho train
at 10 p. m. It was raining nnd wo
had nothing to eat and no placo to go.
"Thcro was no chanco to got another
trnln. but nbout ono o'clock tho next
morning I managed to get hold of n
ono-horso cart driven by a peasant
who Bald he would tako us to Vorvlcrs,
whero ho thought wo could get a train
for Liege. He gave us somo crusts of
bread which was tho first wo wo had
to eat for 18 hours.
"On the road wo passed tho most
pitiful procession of Gorman refugees
lleolng from Delglum. Somo wero In
vehicles, but the majority wero trudg
ing In tho dust, pushing or pulling
their baggago In carts. Women with
babies at tho breast wero walking In
tho noonday sun.
"From Vervlcrs we proceeded by
another cart toward Llego. We had
not progressed threo miles when wo
camo upon a party of Dclglan engin
eers mining tho road. They had great
piles of dynamlto stacked there ready
to plant in tho ditches thoy wero dig
ging across tho roadway.
"They ndvld us to go to Liege by
another road; wo hastened to do so.
"Two hours lator nnothor party of
Americans wero halted at that very
Biiut by a skirmish between tho Del
glans and uhlans. They wcro forced
to Ho In n ditch whllo tho Belgians
fired over them. Next day 3,000 Ger
mans were killed by tho samo mines
we had scon tho engineers planting.
"Soon after wo got a train for Os
tend. Wo did not soo any of the fight
ing at Liege, but could hear tho firing."
