He alu'«>s used i^ircslonc Gnm-Oi/)Jic'(l Tires, <intl never c.v/)en'eiiceil (ire (rouble of any fciiul. Louis Meyer knows tire construction. He also knows that to drive for 500 consecutive miles over this hot brick track, negotiating the dangerous curves 800 times at the record-breaking avcraye speed of 109 miles an hour, requires tires of super strength mid greatest blowout protection, as a blowout on any one of (he dangerous curves would likely mean instanc death. By the Firestone patented Gum-Dipping process every corcl in the tires on Louis Meyer's car was soaked and coated with liquid rubber, thereby preventing internal friction and heat. This is the secret of the extra strength and reserve safely built into Firestone Tires. When you make your holiday trip this week-end, you of course will not drive 109 miles per hour, but at today's higher speeds you do need tires that will give you greatest blowout protection and will top your car up to 25% quicker.

Tiiroiigh their one track minds there runs but one idee fixe"— ; "J want to be with the winner ..." To these people the qualifications of the candidates . . . Iheir ability, honesty, reputation, and general standing count for practically nothing. The only question they want answered is: "Can he win ... ?" Ordinarily this group is mercifully small. Its personnel seldom includes the more substantial, politically independent populace. It is confined almost exclusively to those who rely upon the public purse for their livelihood. But sorry days have come upon the proud state of Arkansas in the one hundredth year of its life. Standing cautiously on the sidelines . . . interested but inactive observers of the greatest political chess game in the stale's history . . . are not only the petty, self-centered, small time professional politicians, but also a vast majority of flic more substantial citizenship of the state—the men and women to whom we have every right to look for aggressive, independent, responsible leadership. This year everyone wants on the band wagon. But many arc in for a rude awakening. They may find . . . when the votes are counted . . . that the band they climbed on with is only the clown band instead of the real McCoy. There are several clown bands in the present political parade . . . ;T.d one has to look rather sharply to detect them all. Ten men have offered themselves for the Democratic nominal ion for Governor. There are several in the race whose election would be a distinct threat to the economic security of the state and to its continued progress and development along all lines. There is imminent danger that the large measure of the commonwealth's destiny resting within the purvey of the chief executive in:iy be reposed in the dubious hands of one ol those nondescripts. Such a cataclysm is practically inevitable unless able leadership jisscrls itself and points the way to one of the acceptable aspiranis- There has been enough of this purposeless pussyfooting. Some one mtist act . . . some one must take the lead . . . some one must make a decision if the indisputable progress that has been achieved in stale government during the past fotir years is to be protected and extended into me future. This.iiewspaper . . . after serious consideration of the comparative merits of all of the ten men ... makes bold to publish its decision. And that decision points to a man of unquestioned lion- .esty, integrity, and ability. Tho man is John C. Ashley. -'-•-.• John C. Ashley is the man.
