How many people realize the signifi cance of this? j The Firestone people do a volume of I around twenty-five million dollars j yearly. For such an industry a yearly i increase of even 5 per cent, to 10 per cent, would seem a splendid showing In their newspaper advertising the Firestone people point out, and right ly. that such an increase means the delivery of genuine quality. It is an argument the mind of the business man understands. When one realizes the new competi tion brought Into the tire industry by the development of new companies and the growing demand of tire con sumers. it strikes us as mighty good advertising to tell of this Firestone 3S . per cent, increase in volume of busi ness. , SWAB BUILDIXG OX HII.L CHANGES HANDS FOR 545.00(1 Chief among to-day's important realty transactions .was the transfer of the Swab building property at Thir teenth and' Market streets and several other properties in that section.

HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH WAILING ABOUT MATERIAL PILES Highway Department Receives Complaints of Infringements by Building Contractors Vigorous complaints against the ac tions of some building contractors, who occupy entirely too much of the streets for piling their materials have , been received by the city authorities during the last few days. City Commissioner \V. H Lynch, j chief of the bureau of highways and City Engineer il. B. Cowaen had an informal conference on the subject this morning as the weight of the complaint has been made to the street commissioner on the ground that the right of way is being infringed upon. Investigation of the lega: pnuses of the problem show that a city ordinance , permits the use of not more than "one third of the street" for the purpose. Six feet is the distance permitted for lanes and alleys. While the law doesn't specifically say, city officials hgure that the "one-third" requirement refers to the frontage of the abutting! property owner. One of the flagrant cases-to which the highway department's attention had been called was on a main thor oughfare in the west end. For weeks a , pile of bricks and otHer materials eaght to ten feet high and extending a dis tance of fifty feet or more, has par tially blocked the street as well as! j the view of the residents in the ; i vicinity. Review of Important Racing Events of Season A review of the important automo bile races during 1916 to date shows lightning speeds to have become the fashion. On March sth at the Ascot speed way in Los Angeles. Pullen in a Mer- j cer took the 100 mile honors at over! 6$ miles an hour over a loose screen surfaced macadam track which was unusually hard on tires. O'Donnell In a Duesenberg. two weeks later on the same track won a ] 50 miles race at over 69 miles an hour. On April Sth at Corona. Cal.. O'Don nell again plucked the highest honors in a 301 mile race at 86*4 miles an hour without a single stop for tires. The record for this course of BT-S miles per hour was made in 1914 by Pullen in a Silvertown-tired Mercer. Prior to the last race, however, six cars C'.'i better than 102 miles per hour in tiyouts. Again at the Ascot speedway on 1 April 16th, O'Donnell took the 150- mile thrilltr at C 5.6 miles per hour. Hughes in his Omar Special at . Blakersfield. Cal., on May 7th. trav eled the century over a dirt track to the tune of 61-6 miles per hour with out a tire stop. At Sheepshead Bay, Xew York, on May 13th, Aitken drove a Puegeot 20 miles at over 106 miles an hour, with three other drivers behind him each' doing better than 104 miles. In the 50-mile, Mulford in a Peugeot made nearly 105 miles an hour without tire, trouble, while Rickenbacher in his, Maxwell did the 150-mile event at over 96 miles per hour without stop ping. Indianapolis, on Decoration Day. 1 saw Resta in a Peugeot cover 3001 miles on a brick track at over 83, miles an hour, while D'Alene in a j Duesenberg and Mulford in a Peugeot ; j followed hot at his heels. ! Resta on June 11th at Chi-! cago. took the 300-mile event over a 2-mile board track, at close to 99 miles' per hour with but one stop. The next eight drivers in this classic, none of whom did under 90 miles an hour, all j rode Silvertowns. At Dee Moines on June 24th—De j Palma In his Mercedes traveled a one-mile board track 150 times at ; nearly 93 miles an hour, while Rick i enbacher in Maxwell took the 50 mile race at over 9 4 miles per. |; De Palma at Minneapolis drove his j Mercedes home, the winner in the; | 150-mile brush at 91 miles per hour.: The latest races have been those! at Sioux City, la., on July Bth. where; | D'Alene in a Duesenberg garnered the' | money in the 10-mile race in 7 min- i j utes. 31 seconds, while Wilcox rodei : a Premier to victory, in 15 minutes, ! | S seconds for 20 miles, and also ne ! gotiated the half century in the space of 41 minutes lacking one second, and ; 1 at Omaha, July 9th, where five new world's records went on record on the mile and a quarter track. Resta driving a Peugeot, hung up 110 miles an hour for 5 miles as the mark for others to aim at. while Rick enbacher maue the Maxwell hum 1 around the oval at a speed that shat i tered all previous 10. 15, 20 and 25 I mile records, his average for the lat | ter being 103 miles per hour. Silver , towns were the only tires used by anv j of the drivers. It is interesting to observe that the j winners each time have been those ! whose tires were Silvertown Cord, j which has indeed been the case since I 1914. As all racers are required to pay ! ca3h for Silvertowns. the obvious de-; duction is that no other tires possess the same staying qualities, or they would be used, especially as they may often be had free by racers.
