"Betcha nickel he skids into the fence when he hits that wet curve, Jimmy." "Take his bet, Jimmy-that feller's driving on Kelly-Springfield Kant-Slip Cords." THE fact that Kelly-Springfield Kant-Slip Cords hold the road is only one reason why you see so many of them on cars today. Even the old Kelly Cords, which cost more than other tires and which lacked the present extraordinarily efficient non-skid tread, achieved such a reputation for big mileage that we had no difficulty in selling all we could make. In the Kant Slip Cord the non-skid feature has been developed to an extent that makes this tire incomparably the best we have ever built -and the mileage is still there. Best of all, it now costs no more to buy a Kelly.
