Embarrassmeiiit
During the war, with our tire produc
tion curtailed and thousands of cus
tomers' orders standing unfilled on
our dealers' books, we found encour
agement in thinking of the coming
time w;hen supply would equal
demand
With the armistice we set about the
immediate readjustment of our fac
tories, and laid down for them a tire
production schedule by far the heav
iest they had ever known.
That schedule is now in being by
dint of great labor we have even sur
passed it last week's output, for ex
ample, averaged the enormous figure
of 24536 finished tires per day
Yet notwithstanding our most careful
preparations, made in anticipation of
an unprecedented business, our
passenger car tire volume is still in
sufficient fully to meet all existing
demands
There is for us a considerable element
of embarrassment in so great and
growing a preference on the part of
the public for Goodyear Tires, and in
our own failure properly to satisfy
this preference
In one sense we feel it to beva reproach
to our own estimate of Goodyear Tires'
popularity, which, although we knew
it to be great, has now exceeded any
thing we had imagined
There is the regret on our part, too,
at our inability to serve immediately
all the people who look to us for serv
ice, since we do appreciate their
friendship and their custom
But so far it has been not humanly
possible for us to produce tires of
standard Goodyear quality in the vol
ume all these people demand
r
There are probably many Goodyear
Service Station Dealers that have full
stocks of Goodyear Tires; on the con
trary there are many others whose
stocks are very low
Should you encounter one of the lat
ter and be unable to have your wants
filled there, we ask you to absolve
that dealer of any fault in the matter
whatsoever
The fault, if there is a fault, is entirely
our own, in our temporary inability
to build enough Goodyear Tires to
satisfy public needs
Night and day we are pushing the
Goodyear factories to remedy this
condition, in an endeavor to make
Goodyear Tires as easy to get as they
are worth while to use
