Brake Inspection Movement Prominent officials, leading clubs and organizations and motorists everywhere have endorsed this big national movement to reduce automobile accidents, by having all brakes inspected before the touring season begins, and regu

larly thereafter. Give it your support.

Will your car do this?

'HEN the unexpected happens can you count absolutely on

your brakes? At the moment they are most needed will they act quickly, surely and safely? They are out of sight and for that reason are frequently not given the attention which they demand. Yet on their efficiency depends your enjoyment and safety. With so much depending on good brakes is it wise for you to neglect them? A simple inspection by your garage man will tell you definitely if they are safe. Perhaps only a slight adjustment is necessary to make them dependable instead of doubtful. If they do need relining you most certainly want to know it. Endorsed by automobile

manufacturers The engineers of fifty-one leading manufacturers, ten axle makers, and countless jobbers and dealers have selected Thermoid Brake Lining because they know its dependability. 1. More material, greater service-There is over 40% more material and 60% more labor used in the manufacture of Thermoid Brake Lining than in any woven brake lining. This abundance of material and labor must mean longer wear. 2. Grapnalized-an exclusive process which

creates resistance to moisture, oil and gasoline. Under ordinary conditions of service, Thermoid is impervious to any kind of moisture. 3. Hydraulic compressed, uniform throughout-Every square inch of Thermoid is hydraulic compressed at a pressure of 2,000 pounds. Because of this Thermoid is uniform all the way through. It cannot compress in service. There are no soft spots to wear out. It must give uniform service until worn cardboardthin. The measure of Thermoid value These three exclusive features form the measure of Thermoid value to the motorist

-his assurance of longest, safest service at the lowest possible price. Have your dealer inspect your brakes to-day. He will show you Thermoid Brake Lining that you may see why it is so different, so efficient and long wearing. If he hasn't Thermoid we will gladly send a sample. Be sure to accept no substitute, our guarantee protects you. Thermoid will make good -or WE WILL. It is positively guaranteed to outwear and give more satisfactory service than any other brake lining.

10.8

Automobile engineers have

proved that when brake mechanism is right and road conditions average, any car should stop at distances and speeds given by the chart. v? means the square of the velocity or speed of your car: 10.8 is the proved factor of retardation under average road conditions. This factor decreases on smooth, slippery roads to 6.7 and increases as high as 17.4 on rough, worn roads. The chart represents the average condition and other conditions can readily be figured by changing the factor within the given limits. Remember that your brake mechanism is not right" unless its brake lining has the ideal co-efficient of friction. The better the brake lining the quicker your stop.
