Automobiles Are
Making Country
Homes More Handy
With tho Increasing hot weather the
tendency to get out In the open air of
the country away from the stifling city
street Is becoming more and Inore prev
alent. The well to do are 'purchasing
country homes and those less fortunate
are' spending their evenings and Sun
days In the parks.
Uut the most satisfactory method of
escaping the heat and still remain In
the city to transact business Is by means
of the motor car. Every person who can
possibly afford tho Initial outlay has
procured, or will very shortly procure,
an automobile. In his machine the busi
ness man, worn out by the nerve racking
exercise of conducting his business when
every one has a perpetual "grouch,"
can toko his family out In the open
where the cool breezes recuperate him
so that ho may go back to his desk
The car that Is especially built to make
cross country driving simpler and easier
without sacrificing comfort In city driv
ing Is the Itamblor. The Humbler peo
ple have studied the country road prop
osition and have built their 1913 cross
country car so as to overcome every
obstacle that may present Itself.
Tho Rambler Is one of the few Amer
ican cars that carries demountable
wheels which eliminates long stops to
repair punctures, etc. There are over
COO distributers of the Ilamtiler which
makes It a simple matter to get service
at any part of the country. Humbler
parts have been so carefully studied 'and
so much time has been put on fthelr
manufacture that they are. cheaper and
easier to obtain than parts on average"
cars built only for city drlvlnff.
Fundamentally the Rambler Is a cross
country car, but the fact does not do
tract from Its ability for city service.
Firestone Gives
His Men a Big Feast
at the Old Homestead
The "Firestone Foreman's Homestead
dinner" given recently by II. S. Fire
stone at the old Firestone homestead In
Columbiana county, was one of the most
exclusive affairs of Its kind during the
season. Mr. Firestone's Invitation list
was strictly limited to factory superin
tendents, foremen, officials and directors
of the .Firestone Tire and Rubber com
pany, Even so, a fleet of about thirty
cars was needed, the guests numbered 145.
The party started with the serving of
lunch to all In the restaurant of the
Firestone plant, and the drawing of lot,
which designated one's place In the pro
cession of cars. The host led as a "path
finder," the next car driven by Master
Harvey Firestone, scattering confetti at
every turn, to print the way for any
"trailers." The route to the old home
stead was selected for Its scenic values,
and Ohio never displayed seventy miles
of her beauties to better advantage, the
country fresh, the day ideal.
Then tho dinner! Just think of every
thing good to eat you ever had, and
everything you ever wanted, whother you
have had It or notand you will come
pretty to close to the menu of that "Fire
stone Foremen's Homestead dinner," and
It was served In a manner to whet appe
tites already sharp, on long tables set In
the homestead yard, and everything pip.
ing hot that should be hot-everythlng Ico
cold that should be cold.
Finally, the coffee was served, cigars
wero lit, the last glow of the sun flick,
ered from the windows of the century-old
home, and the 'boysV began to tune their
cars for the glorious 'moonlight drive back
to Akron.

Goodrich Tires is the unit molding.
We made the first American
Clincher Tire. Before that time
we had been manufacturing rubber
goods for twenty-seven years. Those
twenty-seven years of experience
were the foundation of our principle
of unit molding, and we have never
changed it.
Every Goodrich Tire Is made and
molded as a unit. The layers of fine,
strong fabric, strips of pure rubber,
side strips, bead, and the thick, J
tough tread are literally molded into
a unit in our single vulcanization.
llcing ethe tire, and not merely
en it, the thick, tough tread does not
peel or strip.
' The result is a unit tire which is,
simply bound to give both resistance
and resiliency, as both tire users
and automobile manufacturers testify
by their choice.
Your tire dealer will supply you
with the particular Goodrich Tire
which best meets the requirements
of your car, whether it is the

. Our reductions this year on No-Rim-Cut
tires will save users, we judge at least
three million dollars.
And it comes about largely, through
mammoth production by far the largest
output in the world.
Higher Prices
Are Unfair
No-Rlm-Cut tires because of
special qualities have always been
high-price tires.
They used to' cost one-fifth rnoro
than other standard tires. Yet we
never built them better than we
build today.
These tires have always typi
fied the utmost in a tire. And
they won the topmost place in
Tiredom just on that account.
But we make more of these tires
every month in
these days than
we made in the
year 1009.
We made
more last year
than in our pre
vious 12 years
put together.
