wmmmm . n,r., PS' Ml rog€ Six THE CHILDRESS INDEX, CHILDRESS, TEXAS WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1948 Pioneers, TOO — In The Rubber Field Fifty years ago this year the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company was born in the eity of Akron, Ohio. A small group of men headed by Frank Scibcrling started with very little capital but much courage and deter- mination plus some keen foresight. The company was named after Charles Goodyear who discovered the technique of vulcanizing rubber in 1839. The little organization faced many problems including keen competition but slowly it emerged from its difficulties and enlarged to take care of the growing demands for tires. Today, Goodyear leads the world in the manufacture of tires. Goodyear rubber factories have been built in rtiany places and Goodyear rubber plantations are maintained wherever rubber is available in quantity. The company has grown largely because of the quality of its products. The name Goodyear stands for excellence in the tire field. Pionee...

Most of the homes were dugouts, and the First Methodist Church here was established in the dug- out which was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Williams. There were then seven members.

Although Childress had had filling stations before 1924, that verr saw the first drive-in and visible pump station in town. It was erected on the site of the present Yellow Cab stand on Avenue B. Northwest, and Com- merce Street, by W. M. and George Stiner. Some residents obje<ted to tearing up the sidewalks to in- stall the driveways, and one man was about to get an injunction to prevent it.
