The 35x5 'Royal Cord' tires on the T r m I rear wheels of my 12-passenger Hud son have totaledover 21,000 miles and are still in good condition. I think, if I om 2 e HE haa usea -KoyalCora rtres exclusively during thepastyear I would have saved a good many hundreddollars. -David Crockett, Tacoma, Wash. A 34x4 'Royal Cord' has made a total mileage of 43,091 miles on my 7 passenger Oldsmobile car on a stage run. Of this mileageover 18,000 miles was run on the right rear wheel. - B. Henry, Tacoma, Wash. Two 37x5 'Royal Cords' have cov ered 28,000 miles on the rearwheels of my 11-passenger Stevens-Duryea passenger bus.

'Royal 'Nobby' 'Usco' Cord' 'Chain' 'Plain' Tacoma is the center for many motor bus lines which operate in the mountains of Washington. It is their job to struggle up the rough, tough going of the foothills, then down the steep trails into the valleys-and thus to connect numerous widely separated points the railroads fail to reach. With the unusual conditions in mind, it is a most significant fact that Tacoma stage drivers are virtually unanimous in their endorsement of United States 'Royal Cords'. We have no desire to boast of long mileages. Too many conditions influence the service a tire may give. We merely quote these letters to bring home this fact: 'Royal Cords' are built to endure. Their value proves up in extra miles-extra dependability. It manifests itself in the extra service exemplified by 'Royal Cord' success on Tacoma stages. Surely, tires that will stand up and keep on standing up under such merciless conditions must have the stuff you want in your tires. For passenger and light delivery cars-'Royal Cord', 'Nobby', 'Chain', 'Usco' and'Plain'. Also tires for motor trucks, bicycles and airplanes.
