The Rubber .Association of Amer

in January, voted for a continuance
of the nine standard tire sizes first
planned for only the duration of
the war. These sizes are 30x31/2,
31x4, 32x3 , 33x4, 34x4, and
35x5 for passenger cars, and 36x6,

IN INDIANA MEET
Seven drivers, all widely known in
the racing world, have filed their en

stakes of the Indianapolis speedway,
May 31. One name-Louis Chevro

those who have declared themselves
in on the dash for $50,000. The

The total cultivated rubber pro

about 2,000,000. of which 1,600,000

Britain. Yet the United States uses I
three-fourths of the world's output
of crude rubber. The Goodyear Tire

owns its own rubber plantations in
Sumatra, where 20,000 acres of for

RACING IN AIlTOS
IS NIT OANIEDOUS,
No Peril at All-That Is, if
no Accidents Happen po
Mar the Day.
"Isn't automobile racing awfully
Ralph I)e Palma answers ahis
question at least 50 times every day
that he works his fast new "9(15"' of
"299" in speed or on the racing
track. And every time his answer is
"If I thought it was, I wouldn't
"Buti don't racing drivers get hurt
and killed?" suggests the questioner
---people seem to have a child-like
interest in discussing with the speed
king all the different things that
might happen to hinm.
"Yes, they do--lut only when ac
cidents occur," is 1)e 1'almna's reply.
By which he means that every
mishap in his own speed career has
been definitely traceable to an acci
dent-- tire "blew," a holt flew
through the radiator, somethiiig like
that. But something is just as likely
to happen while father is climbing
up the stepladder with a piece of
stove pipe, le Palma points out, and
for that reason he maintains that
stepladders are dangerous, and
father is apt to have an accident no
less than the automobile racing
driver. In fact, the probabilities art
very much against heads of families,
climbing stepladders as c(mi lari l
with speed kings meeting disaster
because the latter are fee' in niitii
ber and people who elimb steplad
ders are a multitude.
As an illustration that, racing
drivers can be careful, lie Palma
cites the 100 per cent record of his
friend, Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker,
Ihe former auto racing star, who
went to France in Uncle Samt's avia
tion service last April, and in seven
months of air fighting brought down
26 Gqinan planes. This was a bet
ter record than any made by Amer
ican fliers in the famous Lafayette
squadron, which had over three
years' experience. Yet Itickenbacker
never crashed a single airplane, or
even broke a wing or a tail. lHe
brought down 1S Germans with one
Spad machine, and ran another for
120 hours, though the average life
of that type of plane was only titu
hours in fighting service.
PAINT FOR ODI[ES
A now fashion in atutotobiles has
appeared in the west, leather being
used as a finish for the bodies, ac
cording to the April Popular Me
eluhiis magazine. Both Spanish atnt
patent leather are usid, even 11i
shock absorbers and fenders being
covered in some instances. Wiping
off with a sponge is all the attention
needed to keep in good condition.

States wardens hold td the opiniot
that unless some iaw is passed ti

GOODYEAR SAL VAES

company, says at A:kron exchliang
