Tires of huge sizes are handled,] all the usual automobile tires,] the county trucks, stage linel tires, school bus tires, Arlington Sand & Gravel truck tires, and tractor tires. Several big carryall tires used on earth movers were displayed by Mr. Robb. Each of these tires cost, he said, $800, and a retread job on sUch a tire, he said, would cost about $400. Mr. Robb, who was born in North Dakota, came to Arlington with his parents in 1912. He is the son o~ Otis Robb. He is assisted in his shop by his two sons Hat. ley and Howard.
