MANUFACTUlERS1 OF TIRES
COOPEUATE Wi'TI COVE INMENT
9 States Mr. J. C. Weston, Vice-Pres
Ident of Unitled States Tire Com-.
New York, Slay 20.--Asked regard
ing Government restrictions on the
importation of rubber, and the endeav
or of tire manufacturers in co-opera
'tion with the government, to restrict
the manufacture of unnecessary tire
sizes, -Mr. J. C. Weston, vice-president
and director of sales of the United
States Tire Company said:
"The intention of tile government
Jin the control and restriction of -the
importation of rubber is to conserve
I hipping space and the program thFd
as been laid before the manufactu -
ers of rubber goods has won th
unanimous support for the War Trai,
Board and the Shipping .Board.
"In addition, the manufacturers of
tires are heartily co-operating with
the government program for the even
tual elimination of unnecessary tire
sizes. This eliminktion wilI simplify
tile problem for oichl user of the muo
tor car of reducing his cost and and
making it possible for him to secure
the tire size he needs, in good tires,
more readily than the market and
manufacturing conditions now permnit.
"Plans for the withdrawal of cer
tain tire sims fromt use by mallufac
hirers of motor cars will not in any
way interfere with the manufacture
lud distribution of tile tires to users
.7*ho need those particular sizes at
Mr. Weston was very insistent in his
statement that there is nothing in the
present or probable future situation to
occasion the slightest alpprehension of
a shortage of tires for legitimate use.
"lowever, there never was a time."
he said, "When users of imotor cars
eor'ld so well serve the nation as by
making the most of their cars in logit
Iniate cominercial and passenger ser
vice and refusing to hoard or unnecas
sarily anticipate their needs in tires
'r other motor car supplies."
Mr. Weston called attention to the
falt that file government has not at
the lrsent time imposed any restric
tions on tile use of motor cars by the
automobilists of the country, but has
relic d on the patriotism of the car
owners to exercise a proper discretion
In tile usp of their vehicles, witi a
view to conserving their cars and
ii res. Mr. Weston is of the opinion
that the motorists of the country can
