MARKS TODAY'S RUBBER CENTER OF THE WORLD Built in less than two years by America's synthetic rubber experts largely with the aid of alcohol supplied by the beverage distillers W HEN the Japanese captured the chief natural rubber producing centers of the world, they thought they had dealt a death blow to America's war effort. But in two short years the United States became the new rubber producing center of the world. This great war miracle was achieved by America's brilliant synthetic rubber experts largely with the aid of alcohol supplied by our country's beverage distillers. The rubber experts had the technical production knowledge that made synthetic rubber possible. The beverage distillers furnished the huge volume of alcohol required by the alcohol-butadiene process... the most practical at that time. Today we are producing a supply of synthetic rubber, ample to meet our needs for essential civilian and war rubber goods. Proof! . . . jthe request of Bradley Dewey, Rubber Director, to terminate his wartime powers. Current production is at rate of 200,000 tons •more annually than the entire country consumed for all purposes in 1940. Thank you for your patience! To aid in the achievement of this wartime miracle, America's beverage distillers stopped making whiskey nearly two years ago and produced nothing but industrial alcohol. They are fully aware of the inconveniences you faced during the 22 months when not a drop of whiskey was made in this [country. For your extreme patience and understanding during that time, they are sincerely grateful and appreciative. Conference of Alcoholic Beverage Industries, Inc. CRISIS IN 1942 "If we fail to secure quickly a large new rubber supply our war effort and our domestic economy both will collapse." — Baruc/t Report, Sept. 11,1942 ACHIEVEMENT IN 1944 "A synthetic rubber industry has been established and is in complete operation. It is providing the nation with an ample supply of rubber." —Bradley Detvey, Rubber Director, July 25,1944 TRIBUTE Commenting on the beverage distilling industry's contribution, a high W.P.B. official said on April 13, 1944... 1. " is fair to regard the rubber manufactured to date, as being almost solely the product of the beverage distilling industry." 2. "...synthetic rubber is from 6 to 9 months ahead of where it could have been if alcohol had not been available for butadiene production." 3. "... an almost unparalleled example of the overnight conversion of an entire industry from peace to war." — Dr. Walter G. Whitman P. T. A.
