The company sold the standard range of US designed and made tubes and these were made by a few small manufacturers. The "WLS" (Worlds Largest Store) brand was eityher hot branded on the base of the tubes or a paper label on the glass. The Fall 1929 catalog has an entirely new catalog number and the 4630 became the 57T226.
