of our car skidding You have neglected to put on Weed Tire Chains. You anxiously view the slippery turn ahead and have a men tal picture of your car skidding into the school children. Stop nursing anxiety and coaxing calamity. For Safety's sake-for your own peace of mind fully equip your car today with Weed cAnti-Skid Chains THE ONLY REAL SAFEGUARD AGAINST SKIDDING Safety demands that all tires be equipped withWeed Chains. It doesn't require the gift of second sight to see why this is true. Rubberslips-never grips. Rubber will agree to anything the road has to offer. It is the weaker element. It slides on wet pavements like a cake of soap rubbed on the moist ened hands. Rubber lacks the bite-and hang-on ability to prevent skidding. Weed Tire Chains are diamond hard - many times harder than their op posing element - the pavement or road. Wheels equipped with Weed Tire Chains automatically lay their own traction surface. They grip with out grinding - hold without binding. No matter how muddy or slippery the road, they hold on like a bull-dog, prevent side-skid and drive-slip. i AMERICAN CHAIN COMPANY, INC.
