By the Own rnor; HI I LIB B. PERLMAN. TOURIST IS BEST LIVING | PERSON IN ALL GERMANY Invasion of Foreigners Sends Prices So High That Ger mans Are Barred. The attitude of the Germans to the "valuta rich" foreigners ia assuming a controversial character, and discus •ions as to the pros uud cons of the matter are appearing will) increasing frequency in the German press. l.ike every problem, this also luia two aides, a fact that is fully realized hy the Ger mans themselves, who, with absolutely nothing inimical or racially hostile in their attitude, are asking themselves where things are going to end If the Invasion of foreigners Increases in the same ratio as the mark decreases. They know their poverty stricken eountry would suffer inexpressibly if foreigners were discriminated against to an extent which would keep them out of the country, but. on the other hunt!, the Invasion is sending the prices up so high that the Germans are beginning to find themselves burred from many of their former pleasures and diversions. For instance, the thrifty Gentian who always arranged ills household budget so that every member of the family could take the “air cure” so dear to the heart of the German, Is now read ing with dismay that hundreds of thousands of Americans alone are ex pected to he emptied into Gerninny through the northern ports, to sny nothing of the hordes that will sweep down from the Scandinavian countries I and Holland. The American army will march across Germany to beautiful Bavaria and there proceed to spread Itself in the picturesque villages and hamlets, to the exclusion of the native population. The German has a vision of himself and his family crowded Into their now shrunken Berlin apart ment. while the stranger appropriates his favorite haunts and lives on the fat of the land. ❖X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*I NAMED SUPERINTENDENT OF BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS ❖x*x*x*x*xx*x*x>x*x*x*x<a i !

I The man who buys a “lons discount” tire usually finds himself U troubled by the above question. Did he pay less for the tire than his neighbor might have paid. or d actually did he pay more? Did he get the bottom price, when all is said and done, or could he perhaps have driven a sharper bargain ? Was the net price really more than he might have had to pav f r a tire of established reputation and value? In the belief that the average motorist prefers a frank and open transaction, we built the new Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord and discounted the “discount” in advance. Instead of listing it at a high price, to enable the dealer to attract you with a so-called “long discount,” we list it as low as \%e profitably can. We build it of high-grade long-staple cotton, using the patented Goodyear method of group-ply construction, and sell it at a lower price than you are asked to pav for many “long discount” tires of unknown worth.
