U.S. MONO-TWIN A solid truck tire that is the latest ad. vancement of the U. S. Tire makers.

Superior in cushioning, tractioning, and load carrying capacity, and in 95% of cases far more economical and satisfactory than duals.

Today it is the fastest selling solid truck tire in the world.

U.S. NOBBY CORD Not an enlarged passenger tire, but a truck pneumatic designed and built for trucking conditions.

While many still use passenger tires for commercial work, in the 4% and 5 inch sizes Nobby Cords yield a lower cost per mile.

Truck Tire Service:
judge for yourself its value to you


NTIL now American truck owners

have never had at their disposal absolutely impartial, honest advice about the right type and right size tire for a specific trucking condition.

As much money is wasted today on wrong truck tires as on poor ones.

The makers of United States Tires are ready to give anybody engaged in truck operation a full advisory service in the interest of greater economy.

Independent and non-partisan advice. A service by experts who have no theories to try out-who make no favorite of either pneumatics or solids.

The equivalent of a personal consultation with the best tire-engineering brains in the country.

No obligation to anyone who asks for it.

Write to our Technical Service Dept. at any length. On questions involving one truck or a fleet of fifty trucks. Recommen. dations will be for the right size of tire, the right kind of tire, and greater economy.

To men who are ordering new trucks a
special word: Consider tires as a separate
problem from the truck itself. Get the
right tire equipment for it before it is
delivered-not afterward.

Address all letters to Technical Service
Dept., United States Tire Co., 1790 Broadway,
New York City.

The fuller the details you give about your
truck tire problem the better you can be
served by the U. S. Technical Service men.

Wherever in America adolescent girls and boys allow themselves to be hurried into an early marriage, is the true scene of this book's opening chapter. To be sure, Mr. Norris clothes it in the wonderful beauty of the mellow Californian fruit harvesting, but as you read the intensely real incidents of the story you feel that his people are such warmly human Americans as are to be seen in every village, town, and city.

Before you realize it you are sharing with them the tension of the conditions which are making for or destroying their happiness in marriage. Increasingly you desire to see the final effect upon them for better or for worse of the marriage bond-accepted or evaded.

Never has the whole subject of marriage, its obligations to the individual, the society and the state been handled with such masterly understanding and sympathy. It is a book to read leisurely and to discuss, for it is presented with vivid force and unrelenting honesty-and, moreover, with vision.
