JOHN WANAMAKER, Philadelphia, oper ates a large number of two-ton trucks in his delivery system. These trucks are required to travel long distances at high speed and cover a large area each day. This fleet of cars covers an average of 4,000 miles daily. It carries a total daily average of 45 tons of goods. It is kept constantly keyed up to a big job-and does it well ! It is a significant fact that 50 of these Wana maker cars are equipped with 'Nobby Cord' Truck Tires-the big, burly tires that are built for long mileage and hard usage. The tires that welcome any test. 'Nobby Cords' cut costs of operation. They minimize repairs and replacements. They are known to reduce truck depreciation 50 per cent. and to save 30 per cent. in gas and oil consumption. 'Nobby Cords' are remarkable for their in credible strength and sturdiness. A carcass that is almost unassailable and a cover that is almost impregnable. A veritable fortress in power of resistance. Many big users have found complete tire satisfaction in 'Nobby Cords'. Always ready to tackle any task-no road too long-no load too big-no job too strenuous. For passenger and light delivery cars-'Royal Cord', 'Nobby', 'Chain', 'Usco'and 'Plain'.
