XJBW YORK. Not. S. Opinion is
i i greatly divided as to whether
Walter Hagen or Jim Barnes is the
leading golf professional in this
country, since both have shown their
prowess in various events. It now
remains to be seen which one of the
pair makes the better showing In the
coming southern season, for prob

Won Many Titles.
Hagen captured the national open
title After the playoff of a tie with

Bobby Jones, the Atlanta lad, in the

the title there. A snort time later.

This Test Proves Millers
Outrun All Others
WHAT you want to know is the mile
age tires will give on your car. You
are not interested in the mileage they give
on others. That is why we want you to
put Miller Tires to the test.
You Be the Judge
Then vou will be convinced. For all
Millers are uniform long distance run
ners. Under" like conditions every Miller
Tire wears the same. Tire after tire,
they outrun all standard mileage guarantees.
Each Miller is guaranteed against de
fects in workmanship and materials re
gardless of the mileage run.
Get This Certainty
Don't trust to luck when you can get
mileage certainty. For Millers assure you
long distance mileage in all not luck in
a few. The famous Miller Geared-to-the
Road Tread gives you full power and safe
ty over muddy, rutty and slippery roads.
Put a Miller opposite your favorite tire.
Keep careful record of the mileage it gives.
Once you have put Millers to the test you
won't buy tires of uncertain mileage.
