ONE OF FINEST VIEWS IN TIl
WORLD MAY BE SEEN FROM
If "See 'America First" is a wise
slogan for the citizens of the nation
generally. "See the Piedmont First
ought to be a wise slogan for the
citizens of Greenville and of the sec
tion which includes Greenville coun
ty and which holds scenes and views
unrivalled, some of them, by any in
the Rockies, the Alleghanies or the
With these magnificent views right
under their noses, so to speak, many
citizens have looked over and beyond
them to other sections of the land in
their search for beautiful scenery.
By Automobile from Greenville, and
from other points in this and adjoin
ing counties, numerous points of in
torest may be reached with coinpari

teresting of these is Table Rock, over
in Pickens county.
Years ago, Table Rock was a sort
(f Mecca for South Carolinians. Many
still visit it, but the rapidly growing
population of Cities, towns and rural
districts in this section include many
who know little or nothing about the
place, its strange sights, its magnifi
ceent view, its grippingly-interesting
Trable Rock, from which one of the
finest views in the world can be ob

old mountain of solid rock are im

No other part of America has any
thing equal to it.
Table Rock rises up from the val
ley majestically and the formation
of this grand old mountain is a won
der to all who behold it.
On top of the rock, at an altitude
of nearly 4,000 feet, gushes out a
clear, cold, bubbling spring which is
refreshing after the steep climb up.
From the summit of Table Rock
one can look into North Carolina,
Geergia and Tennessee.
T4o the botanist and geologist Ta
ble Rock is a vetitable storehouse of
many wonders. During the summer
months bright-hued flowers bloom in,
profusion in nooks and Crannies.
There are "rock houses" where a

One of the strange sights on the
summit is a gigantic foot print, evi

that looks as though a horse had
rolled over and left the outline of his
body in the solid rock.

TjOW the cost of building quality tires has been brought down to the lowest
- level in history was explained by H. S. Firestone, President of the Company,

cr2. Increased manufacturing eficiency and volume production reduced factory
3. Sciling costs reduced 38%.
Mr. Firestone stated, "This reduction in prices is made possible by our unusually
advantageous buying facilities, and the enthusiasm, loyalty and determination of our

"Due credit must be given to Firestone dealers who are selling Firestone tires on
- a smallcr margin of profit. This brings every Firestone saving direct to the car. - -
