Better Times Ahead.
Experts say that important pro
blems are confronting 1 agricul
ture. It is estimated that the
population of the United States
will be near 150,000,000 souls*with
in twenty-five years and these ex
perts are wondering where the
food they will eat is coming from.
Conservatively estimated, it is
said that 38,000,000 acres will have
to be added to the nation’s pres
ent actual crop land to support a
population that the United States
will probably have by 1950.
That can mean only one thing—
that the demand for products of
the farm is going to increase con
stantly and that the consequent
reduction of supply will operate
for the benefit of the farmers of
the United States.
The tillers of the soil every
where have been downcast and
heavy of heart. Being dropped
Suddenly out of a cloud of afflu
ence that came with the war and
remained for a few years after
wards, it is little wonder that far
mers became discouraged at the
sudden change which took away
their war profits and made it prac
tically impossible to make much
more than a living off their land.
But they should not be too im
patient. The troubles that have
beset agriculture for the past few
years are going to pass, and when
they do, agriculture is going to
come into its rightful place in the
business world, such as it never
did before.
It is but natural to reason that
in due time, farm products are
going to become scarce on account
of farms being abandoned and
farmers being attracted to the
higher wages of the industrial cen
ters. This condition, combined
with increased demand due to the
constantly growing population,
means better times ahead.
3he depression is only tempor
ary. The law of compensation is
going to bring the pendulum
back.
All farmers need to do is to be
optimistic and keep pegging aw’ay.
There is a better day coming—and
when it comes, the tiller of the

LEADERSHIP
Firestone Leads on Speedway
with Five Record Breakers
When the race driver selects his tires he does so
realizing that his life and chances for success de
pend upon them. It is significant that all of the
ten money winners in the Indianapolis race were
Firestone shod. Firestone, using gum-dipping
and other special processes, has developed tires
to such a high degree of efficiency that at Indian
apolis, May 30th, the following drivers broke the
world’s record for 500 miles over thi'. brick track,
making many rounds at over 100 miles per hour.
Never before were tires put to such gruelling
service, where it was necessary for every ounce
of rubber and every fibre of fabric to work in
perfect unison with every other part.

Leadership in Everyday Service
Millions of motorists are profiting by the length
ened service of Firestone tires. Scores of unso
licited testimonials emphasize the long mileage
Firestone Gum-Dipped Cords deliver —which
builds leadership in service, safety and economy.
Leadership on Cabs, Buses and
Trucks
The largest taxicab companies in the five largest
cities in the United States use Firestone Gum-
Dipped Cords exclusively. One fleet alone, the
Yellow Cab Co. of Chicago, uses over one-half
million tire miles per day.

Every native American Indian in
this country becomes a citizen of
the United States, under the new
Indian citizenship act recently
signed by the President. The
granting of citizensihp does not
remove the restrictions on Indian
lands under government guardian-
Firestone for yeai-s has been first to develop tires
and rims complete which would meet the heavy
trucking loads, great strains and demand for trac
tion. By originating and carrying forward the
Ship by Truck movement, and establishing Ship
by Truck bureaus in all large cities, Firestone
helped to speed up highway transportation and
reduce costs.
Balloon Tire Leadership
Firestone’s latest contribution to motoring is die
low air pressure or Balloon Tire. This, the
original full-size Balloon, was made practical by
the special Firestone Gum-Dipping process, in
sulating every fibre of each cord, adding great
strength and stamina. Firestone has also simpli
fied the application of full-size Balloon tires to
your present car by designing a special unit con
sisting of tires, tubes, rims and spokes applied by
any dealer at a very low cost.
Leadership Against British
Rubber Restriction Act
Attacking the unsound and uneconomic character
of the British Rubber Restriction Act limiting
the exportation of rubber from the Far East,
Firestone was the one large tire manufacturer
to take up the cause for the car owner. Soon
after the agitation was started for America to
produce rubber under its own control, the cost
of crude rubber was reduced and tire prices
brought back to normal.
Dealer Leadership Through
Tire Quality and Service
Through Firestone dealers you can obtain or
ganized service and the soundest values on the
market, whether, you need a Ford 30x3Ve Fabric,
a set of full-size Balloon Gum-Dipped Cords or
a 10-inch truck tire.

A kauri tree has recently been
