(UP)—Motorists holding "A" gasoline ration cards may begin rolling on new tires by next January as the result of stepped-up civilian production, according to a high War Production Board official. A confidential Office of War Information survey gave a broad picture of the probable civilian economy following the end of the war in Kurope, predicting that price controls may have to he continued even after the close of the war with Japan. Hiland O. Batcheller, chief of Wai- Production Hoard operations, said the backlog of sno.ono tiew tires for essential motorists would be filled within two months, assuring enough to fill the needs of "IJ" and "C" card holders by the end of the year. 2,500,000 Per .Month He said the passenger tire output would he 2,500,000 a month by January. The Office of Price Administration has taken the position that new tires would be available for nonessential "A" motorists when output reaches 2,000,000 a month. Batcheller said more steel, copper, and aluminum would be available for civilian use in the 12 months following V-E (victory in Kurope) Day than were used in 1937, peak peacetime metals producing year. V-E Plans The OWT survey of the post-V-T3 Day situation, it was learned, made the following prediction for the period immediately after V-K Day, attributed to various government agencies: "Widespread" dislocation in civilian life with 5,000,000 people changing jobs in the 12 months following \'-K Day. A "comparatively brief" period of localized but "numerous and sharp" dislocations. Very difficult situations in some areas but no "unmanageable employment problem." Xo more than 2,500,000 passenger cars and 1,000,000 trucks during the first 15 months. Inflationary Pressures Increased inflationary pressures oven after the war with Japan is over. As a result price controls may be continued for "quite some time." Passenger tire rationing will probably be terminated within three months after V-E Day. Rationing of shoes and rubber boots will probably continue. Fuel oil rationing probably will be necessary during tho 1944-11)45 heating season but not. the following year. Sugar and butter probably will continue on the ration list for six or more months after V-K Day but processed foods probably will go off. Fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry and eggs, dried beans and peas, and grains will be adequate.
