Roosevelt's arrival in Mexi- J& for his address last night at PMonterrey marked the first time fin .United State history when both %ihehead of the government and the Bvfce president were simultaneously f on foreign soil, hteier in war or in ; was also, as Mr. Roosevelt remarked in his speech, the first time »bt nearly 34 years that a president faf'the United States had crossed Jthe border to meet a president of Otedco. His reference was to the fSin" of Presidents William pHnward Taft and Porflrio Diaz m £1 Paso and Juarz on Oct. 16, 1909. U" On that occasion the two chief ^executives met first at El-Paso, $& the American side, and then ex^changed toasts at a banquet on "Mexican soil, at Juarez. wl The theme of President Taft's Kbrief remarks at that banquet was %H$i e feeling of brotherly neighborhood" between the two nations, and Ipfesident Roosevelt's theme last fnlght also was good neighborly re- (I? Wedneidoy, April.al A tem »r As expounded by Mr. Roosevelt, IS however, the idea of the good neigh- cr in international relation- .-ahips was more than a thought or b"«a theme. It was a policy assidous- ?%y developed during the past decade sKand broadened to form the bais of VvEan American collaboration pomt- the way to peaceful collabora- jii of all nations. "The 21 free republics of tne ^Americas," he said, "during- the 10 years have devised a sys- of international cooperation , !JW n.ch has become a great bulwark l !ta the defense of our heritage and iJ'our future. That system,' whose -"sttrength is now evident even to the Imost skeptical, is based primarily PUpon a renunciation of the use of tiorce and the enshrining of mter- iTnational justice and mutual respect las the governing rule of conduct by rail nations" £, »•» " ^Cookers to Be Rationed by ^Farm Board 5,™ ^av^nlng of pressure cookers to £?tural and urban purchasers will be yhandled through county Farm ^Machinery Rationing committees Rot the county USDA War Boards, ^according to Earl N. Martmdalc, ?*cKairman of the Hempstead county A War Board. ti .„ M ,j quotas have been "presently »established for cookers, Mr. Mar- l^tindalc, said, and no state or county '"tquotas will be set up as for ccr- tain types of farm machinery. If j*"*it appears necessary to establish r f quotas and tag pressure cookers, it ^'will be done. However, voluntary IP' distribution is preferable and since cookers are a "no quota" item ap- * plicants found eligible are required > to assure county Farm Rationing f-Committees that the pressure Vcooker desired can be obtained it a i r purchase certificate is issued. •^ County War Boards have been .urged to appoint advisory committees composed of three women selected for their knowledge or rural 4and urban needs for pressure cook,' ers. It has also been suggested •>that county home demonstration vagents, farm security home man- ^agement supervisors and a voca- i&onal home economics teacher be F'asked to act as consultants to the ^county advisory committee. i? Applicants may be either indwid- |,';tial families, neighborhood pools Sfconsistmg of an applicant who has & plained the agreement of several & neighbors to share the use of a pressure cooker, or organizations such as garden clubs, women s Church organizations, etc., each applying as an organization, mem- - bers of which have agreed to share 'the use of a pressure cooker. In the instance of joint applications, each aplicant is required to sign the application form. Applications may be made on Form MR-20A which can be obtained from County USDA War Board offices at County Triple-A pflices, Mr. Martindale said. Mrs, J. H. Bennett Buried in Texas Mrs James H.

Last Thursday we offered, subject to t h e approval of our stockholders, to transfer PERMANENTLY to the U. S. Government (through the Government's Rubber Reserve Company) patent rights on Buna-S ... the tire rubber which forms the basis of the Government's synthetic rubber program. The Government's rubber director and Rubber Reserve Company have accepted this proposal. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that any company has offered to Government the right to license important patents-royalty-free-forever -to everyone—even to its competitors. W 0 ?'. f ) cr <D , UNDER THE PROPOSAL: 1 The Government will have a free license for itself not only dur- " ing the war, but for the entire life of the paints. 0 During the war the Government will have the right to issue royalty-free licenses for the entire life of the patents to everyone who co-operates with the Government in its war rubber program and reciprocates with similar licenses under its own patents. O There will be no payment to us or to others for the patent rights used. A The Government will increase its expenditures on synthetic rubber research to a total of not less than $5,000,000. OUR PURPOSES: 1 To give every possible incentive to co-operation in the war rubber program. O To remove concern about the post-war patent situation from the minds of all those who have a contribution to make to this program. Q To encourage American research and ingenuity—among mde- pendent workers, small companies and large—to build up a new and greater American industry. A To continue to do everything we can to assure tires for Amer' ica's cors-ALWAYS, FACTS ABOUT BUNA In 1929 we bought from I. G. Farbenin- dustrie of Germany a minor interest in their Bgna rubber processes for use outside of Germany. During the 1930's these processes were further developed. The quality of Buna was improved, the range of its use widened. | n 1939—two years before Pearl Harbor we bought out ALL German rights in the Buna processes for the U. S. A. Soon after, two large tire companies took out licenses. We also began building a Buna rubber plant of our own. When war threatened the loss of our country's natural rubber supply, authorities agreed that Buna-S was America's best bet for tires. It became the basis of the Government's synthetic tire program. Today the Government is sepnding over six hundred million dollars on its Buna-S program. Six rubber plants are in operation. _ By the end of 1943 completed plants will have a capacity of 705,000 tons per year, or more than the entire normal peace-time rubber requirements of the United States.
