The Baruch report called for no speeds over 35 miles an hour. Thi has been maintained for passengc cms, but has been relaxed for Iruck carrying priority cargoes. 2. Recommended nalional rratric lions on mileage and gas ralionlin were impaseri on n 5000 miles pe car, per year basis.' They were fur tncr cut in Ihe east, because of a gasoline shortage. 3. Compulsory periodic spcction tire in was instituted, but wa , wa abandoned in 1944 because it was found unnecessary and a nuisance 4. Recommended release of ' rubber to civilian., for Ve,, " re:apping to maintain essential civilian driving, has been possible to a degree, but the bottleneck is n snortage of manpower. These variances between program ccommendations and Ilieir eJccu- tion do not mean that the Baruch report wns wrong in principle The geared to rubber" national' cco cause plants previously authorized were found able to produce at over 120 per cent capacity. 9. Making of 30,000 additional tons of biina-S from grain was recommended, but never ordered b v the rubber director.' 10.
