NO SHORTAGE OF TIHES MANUFACTURERS SAY A new brand of German propagan da has come to light. It Is directed against the automo bile industry. A number of alarming and malicious stories have broken loose simultaneously In a dozen or more of the large cities. The pur pose of all of them has been the same, and that is to alarm the mo toring public as to the future of the motor car. One story that has been industri ously circulated was that there would be serious shortage of tires as a re suit of the embargo on crude rubber, j That this report is unfounded is proved by the following information offered by the B. F. Goodrich Rubber Company: backed up by Great Brit ain, Uncle Sam has promised the rubber trade in America 100,000 tons of "overseas" rubber this year. Last year American manufacturers used 57,000 tons above 100,000. It is est! mated the reserve stock on hand in America, the first of the year amount ed to 80,000 tons, so added to the 100,- 000 tons guaranteed her America Is reallv better fixed now than last year. Another Hun lie was to the effect that, beginning July 1, to save gaso line the Government would order the discontinuance of passenger cars on Sunday for a period of twelve con tinuous Sundays. There is no short age of gasoline yet in this country and the Government so far as ' we know is not contemplating any action of an alarming nature along this line, Probably the most harmful propa ganda now in circulation Is: "Keep the heavy trucks off the highways; they are destroying them." This story spread so quickly and so widely in one eastern state that the state legislature actually almost passed a law forbidding heavy trucks on its highways, and probably would have done so but for the vigilance of motor truck owners. To say that roads are bad because motor trucks have been passing over them Is simply a confession that the roads are not properly built and maintained. In a survey recently completed by the Goodrich National Touring Bureau It was found that It Is possible to build roads which will stand up under the heaviest motor traffic. Such roads exist today and have for several years in the state of Connecticut. Connecticut has furnished the ex ample for the rest of the states. She not only has excellent highways throughout the state hut has carried her roadwork right to the state lines of adjoining states, Instead of stop ping the work at the last important town, as Is the unfortunate method in many states. She has given the lie to the insidious reports that truckB rfeRtrov highways. Connecticut says that the right kind of roads, proper ly maintained, will withstand the hardest truck traffic. More than that, she has adopted the policy of remov ine show from her highways in the winter, so that she gets the use of them for twelve months of the year.
