Wheels for the Working World PIONEERS I BETTER TRANISPORTATIOA Everywhere you turn, today, you see machines on the move. Machines that lift. Machines that dig. Machines that haul. All multiplying, many times, the power of a man. And every year sees their variety ex panding as invention finds new ways to bring power to a job. The consequences of blending imagina tion, design and materials cannot be foreseen. But we now know that the development and promotion of the steel wheel by Budd, more than a generation ago, has added immeasurably to human welfare wherever there's a highway and wherever there's work to be done.
