The price and rent control orders .were issued last night. Spare Dollars Needed 'Congress must act, too, if farm prices are to be slabilized and if Mr. Roosevelt offers a further tax, progfalh to impose limits on personal and corporate income. With-' in the administration there is, also, considerable pressure to go a long step further to foi'ce'd savings reaching far 'down among' wage earners—the little lell'ows— where the bulk of personal Income paid out is received arid spent. Mr. Roosevelt asked' that "every spare "dollar arid^ dmie" be put- in war bonds but there is some doubt of that objective 'without forced saving. He said we now are spending solely for war .purpose's more money than ever has been spent by any other nation. The 'rate is 100,000,000 a day and that will be loubled by the year's end. He urged upon -the people his 3lan to sop up surplus buyins jower arid to prevent the upward piral cf living costs as presented o Congress in his message arid as tartly implemented by yesterday's announcement of price and rent controls. And he said each point. axes, stabilizations, limited income and all, was .dependent on each otlVer point. But he coni- :lained of objections and seemed .o point particularly to the farm bloc where proposed abandonment of statutory price advantages has not been well received. , "Seme people are already taking ;he , position that every one of these points is correct except the one point which steps on their own individual toes," he said. "A few seem very willing to approve self-denial—on the part of their neighbors. "The only effective course of action is a .simultaneous attack on all of the factors which increase company decided to experiment with a switch to horse drawn wagons equipped with wooden tins. The idea originated in a purchasing department conference. Ha^ell said the experiment was a complete success. The wooden tires are expected to last about a year, or 8000 to 10,000 miles of service. The present cost is $20 per wheel but this can be reduced by mass production to $12 to $15. Less Work for Horse Drivers of milk wagons using the wooden tires on an experi- rriental basis report they do not make nearly as much noise as a steel tire on the- old fashioned milk wagon. ' There haven't been any complaints about the wooden tires, except that they cause a\little more Vibration than rubber ones. Hashell says they are hot nearly as comfortable riding, but the American trucker and motorist can't be too particular when the rubber runs out. The wooden tired wagon is easier for-the horse to-pull 1 than a rubber .tired vehicle: ') The tire consists of a series of V-shaped, oak blocks. The. bottom of the block .is cut,, into ; a narrow :\vedge.. that fits the . rim charmel of an ordinary auto wheel. Maple Blocks Tested | There are 10 blocks to a tire. Each is the sams size as the tire b'n an old model Ford or Chevrolet. The blocks are bolted together through the rim of the wheel and are ready for mounting the same as a rubber tired wheel. These 1 wooden blocks are soaked in hot linseed oil and paraffin for L6 hours and white lead fills the cracks between the blocks when they are mounted. The oil and' 'paraffin are used to preserve the | wood and waterproof it to cut the danger of splitting and cracking. If compelled to go to wooden wheels, the switch back to rubber can be "made easily, without damage to the wheel. Experiments also 3re being made with maple blocks which may lessen the danger of splitting. Has 600 Wagers in Use The Creamery askeC the Batavia Body Co., Batavia, II.'., to design the wooden tires. • Th.'s was done with the assistance of '.he MetzgaV Co., Grand Rapids, Mich., which lias for years manufactured wooden wheels for hand trucki. An agreement was worked out between the two companies to build wooden wheel.', for milk wagons and sample sets v/ei-e -made quickly. Twenty - one. sets were ordered for test at Waukegan, III.. Denver, Wichita, Oklahoma Cilj:. Tulsa, Dayton, O., Topeka, Ki.n., and Lincoln, Neb. One or two sets will bt*. used in each town. As soon as the rubber tires oh the wagons wear ov,t, they will be replaced until a to Dal 600 milk wagons using wooden tires will be in use throughout tht Middle West, Hashell said. The wagons are built, witr. second-hand axles and wheels from obsolete Fords and Chevrolets. hbuseworker" before was rectified. the mistake BAPTIST REVIVAL JO.-00-7.-30 P. M.
