Traffic Rules Good
For Green Driver
"The green driver's best friend is the
traffic policeman with his little book of

Stu&ebaker and Lexington lines,' triad o
thljnstatement recently, apropos of two
bad smashups In Omaha which prompted
a discussion of automobile traffic ar
rangements. 1 '
"If it were not for the carefully con
sidered traffic rules." continued Mr. Wil
sonj "that are In forco in all cities, thero
would bo a great jnany more accidents.
As a matter of fact, without them chaos
would prevail and the green driver, en
joying his first experience in piloting a
car, through a crowded buslnoss street,
would havo llttlo chanco of keeping his
machine Intact. Tho traffic regulations
arc his solvation. Without them he
woiild go blundering through, perhaps at
execssivo speed, and, getting Into a
pocket, would loso his head and prob
ably the lamps off his cor. With the
rules ho Is kept In check and saved from
"Onco in awhllo we aro inclined to
chafe over theso trafflo rules. An offi
cer calls us down because In turning a
corner two wheels touch the car track,
as we havo failed to keep within the
prescribed distance. We get sore. But a
little calm thought at onco convinces us
that these rules and regulations are right
In saving tho green driver from the
bumps In crowded traffic, they also pro
tect the experienced driver, because the
seasoned man is not so much afraid of
what trouble he Is going to drive into as
ho is of the troublo the green fellow la
going to force him Into. The man who
Is just learning to handle the wheel can
be as destructive as the proverbial bull
In a china shop and therefore I am thank
ful for that blue-coated man who stands
so calmly and majestically at every

Insure Against Mishap
Whether on slippery pavements,
ice covered boulevards, or muddy
roads, the angles, edges and hollows
of the "Non-Skid" have a firm grip
and prevent your car from skidding
in any direction.
And back of the tread is the
sturdy Firestone body of material
and building strong enough to with
stand any skid-preventing strain.
Increase Tire Mileage
The extra thickness of tough, re
silient tread gives an extra length
of tire service. The unusual mile
age given by Firestone Non-Skid
tires, after the tread "letters" have
worn off, is the economical proof.
Reduce Car Repair Bills
By absorbing the bumps of the road,
no matter how severe they may be,
these extra thick treads prevent the
rack and loosening of mechanism
which thinner treads on the ordinary
"slow" tire cannot avoid.
Economize on Gasoline
The road grip of the edges, angles
and hollows prevents loss of power
by wheel slipping or spinning.
Traction is increased, gasoline
consumption reduced to a mini
mum. Give Greatest Riding
There is an added give and take
to the extra thickness of the resil
ient tread, which materially aids
the cushioning effect of the car's
