Maybe He Started Something
Tire Without Innertube Works!--
Saves Rubber,' Inventor Says
By The Associated Press
TULSA, Okla., July 22.-One tire
on J. B. McGay's automobile is spin-
ning along today as usual-but
there's no innertube in it.
McGay, partner in a manufactur-
ing concern now in defense work, hit
upon the idea of a tubeless tire after
recent punctures tore up two tubes.
"The idea could save a lot of rub-
ber,", he said. "I don't say that it's
better 'than-having an innertube in
the tire, but it is better than not be-
ing able to use a tire at all."
He believes his idea will work on
any drop center rim and any fairly
He reasoned that the tremendous
pressure between the tire bead and
the rimn should make a perfect air
seal. That left the hole in the rim
from which the innertube valve stem
Into that hole, he sealed an old
type valve stem, costing 20 cents,
with a rubber washer and a lock nut.
The tire, without tube, was mounted
on the rim, with rubber cement used
as a precautionary sealer. It was in-
flated and didn't leak. He mounted
it on his car and has driven as fast
Mead Is Candidate
For N. Y. Governor
ALBANY, N. Y., July 22.-()-
United States Senator James M.1
Mead became an avowed seeker of
the Democratic nomination for gov-
ernor of New York today and claimed
the important support of the state's]
"first voter"-President Roosevelt.
Presaging a contest which appears
certain to pit the President's politi-
cal weight against that of former Na-
tional Democratic Chairman James

nounced he would seek the guber-
natorial nomination although "up
until now, I have resisted every ap-7

McGay has four simple rules to be
followed in trying out his tubeless
1. Be sure the rim edge is true
and clean and the bead of the tire
is not gashed.
2. Paint the inside bead of the
rim with rubber cement and mount
the casing as usual, but press one
side of casing against the rim, leav-
ing the other side loose and hanging-
in the center well.
3. Apply air rapidly, pounding on
the casing if necessary to get the air
to force the loose side of the casing
into place against the rim.
4. Test the tire in water tank for
leaks. If a leak is found, patch the
tire on the inside.

HOUSTON, Tex., July 22.-The old
zip is gone from the brawny right
arm of Paul Dean but in its place
has come phenomenal control to give
,the youngest member of that once'
famed brother act-Dizzy and Daffy
-13 victories and a longing glance at
the Majors again.
Apparently washed up three years
ago, Paul returned to the Texas
League this season and proceeded, to
bring "ahs" from the fans and happy
grins to the men operating the
To date he has pitched in 19 games,
12 of them complete, giving up 34
runs and 109 hits-and just 14 bases
That means Paul has issued an
average of only one pass in ten in-
nings, which is not much for batters
to look forward to. In his last time
out, Paul beat Tuls\ 5-1 and made
only 74 pitches.
His earned run average is 1.88 in
143 innings, and he has burled two
three-hitters, one four-hitter, a five-
hitter and two six-hitters.
Fred Ar kenman, president of the
Houston club, says Dean's fast ball
isn't like it was when he worked
with brother Dizzy to make baseballI
history for the St. Louis Cardinals.
But, adds Ankenman, Paul has a fine
curve ball and a baffling change of
Says, J. Walter Morris, veteran De-
troit scout: "When Dean hurt his
arm after the St. Louis-Detroit
World Series in a barnstorming tour
it took away that famed fast one."

A RADIO SHOULD HAVE NO TONE OF ITS OWN
It should add no sound to the original. It is this "noiseless"
quality that sets a Stromberg-Carlson above all other radios.
IT SHOULD GIVE FULL TONE-RANGE ... ESPECIALLY ON FM
To enjoy the enormous musical scope of Frequency Modu-
lation you need the widest range of natural tone, as provided
by a Stromlierg-Carlson. The exclusive "full-floating,"
tone-true Speaker captures music lost by ordinary radios.
And with FM under the Armstrong system, a Stromberg-

static and interference.
