Mr. J. E. Bateman,
I notice that in the suit brought
against you by various citizens
that it is charged that I was of
fered One Hundred Dollars for
my support, or something to
that effect. I desire to state
now that such an allegation is
without foundation whatever. It
is utterly false, as I was offered
nothing and given nothing for
my sppport for any candidate. I
don't run my politics that way.
In justice to myself and to you
I am writing this to you.

and Tires for the Smaller Cars
Enormous resources and scrupulous care
have produced in Goodyear Tires for the
smaller cars a high relative value not exceeded
even in the famous Goodyear Cords on the
world's highest-priced automobiles.
In addition to its larger sizes, Goodyear
manufactures an average of 20,000 small car
tires a day in the world's largest tire factory
devoted solely to the 30x3', 30x32/z, and
31 x 4inch sizes.
Last year more cars using these sizes were
factory-equipped with Goodyear Tires than
with any other kind.
Their extreme worth is available for your
Ford, Chevrolet, Dort, Maxwell, or other
car using one of these sizes, at the nearest
Goodyear Service Station. Go there for these
tires and Goodyear Heavy Tourist Tubes.
