5 Prodium Process Makes Tires Last Longer discovery of the Produim Process is the greatest step for- JL ward in rubber manufacturing: since the perfecting of vulcanization. It has given to Republic Tires a tread of super-toughness that is wear resisting to a remarkable degree.- It wears down as evenly as a piece of tempered steel, and the rubber is so strong that a strip of it one and one-half inches square will suspend a weight of more than three tons. More than. 100,000 sets of Republic Pro dium Process Tires have been sold to tire users. We know now that the Prodium Process does make tires last longer and that mil lions of dollars will be saved to tire buyers. As the result of an unprecedented de mand from every part of the country, we are trebling our production of Republic Prodium Process Tires.

(Specials Representative citizens of Tallahassee have petitioned the congressmen and; senators of Florida to use every means within their power to oppose the fol-; lowing provision of the naval appropri ation bill now pending: - "That no part of the appropriations made in this act shall be available forj me salary or pay ui auy uxxicei, ixiaxx ager, superintendent, foreman or other person having charge of the work of any employee of the United States gov ernment while making or causing to be made with a stop-watch or other time-measuring device a time study of any job of any such employee wnile engaged upon such work; nor shall any part of the appropriations made in this act be available to pay any premiums or bonuses or cash reward to any em ployee in addition to his regular wages except for suggestions resulting in im provements or economy in the opera tion of government plant." We feel that the United States gov ernment should be free to take any ac tion which will speed the work at the munitions plants, of any and every de scription; and if it.be necessary to stimulate production to offer any cash or other bonuses as rewards of merit and patriotism, this matter should be left entirely within the jurisdiction of the proper officials, who shall act only under the authority of President Wil son. We depreciate any attempt, under whatever guise, to hamper or cripple the efforts of our government at this critical time, and urge you, as true Americans, to stand by the president in tnis matter, ana to oppose any bill which carries within its provisions any! power whatsoever that can lower the' efficiency and retard the speed of war preparations. The honor of our coun try must be backed by our every dol lar and our utmost personal support. (Signed.) H. Clay Crowford, secre tary" of state; W. N Sheats, superin tendent of public instruction; W.
