Montgomery Ward 8t Co, is the oldest mail order huoan. in America. So when you say "mail order," many people naturally think first of Montgomery Ward K Co, ^ But --- the specifications of the "mail order" tire listed m Firestone advertising fall far short, of the specifications of Montgomery Ward Co. tires. . . . You have also stated in your advertising that "a mail order tire is made by some unknown manufacturer ..." Wefl,' Ward's tires are made by one of the largest and best known rubber companies m America .,,.. a company, in fact, that is larger than your own' company, Mr. Firestone. . . , Furthermore, yoor advertising says "Compare prices." Yon compare 'Firestone prices with "mail order" prices. Montgomery Ward Co. states emphatically that yonr advertising does NOT make a correct comparison between Ward tires and yours, in either quality or price. But the table at the left DOES, The Firestone, advertising fists three grades of tires--Comer, Oldfield and Super-Heavy Anchor. Your Coorier, Mr. Firestone, what known in the trade as a "third line" tire. Montgomery Ward 8C, Co, does not seD a "third fine" tire. Yonr Oldfield is what is known as a "second fine" tire -- it compares in quality with our TRAIL BLAZER- The table at the left shows how Trail Blazer prices compare -with Oldfield prices. Yonr Super-Heavy Anchor is also a is a quality whicfa-we do not sett . second line" tire -- but OUR BEST TIRE IS OUR RIVERSIDE. The Firestone advertising does not list a tire equal in quality to our Riverside-- in the table at the left , however, we fist Firestone tires that are equal in quality to oar Riversides and show ALSO how the prices compare. i In view of these facts, Mr. Firestone, we ask that in tie future i state whose mail order tire you are talking abort.
