W4shin«Ura,- (M--For the armed forces and for industry, as well as for Joe motorist, the tire famine is on. ., Along with the disclosure that civilians will get 20 to 40 per cent fewer tires in 1944 than expected, Rubber Director Bradley Dewey hinted that essential truck and bus hauling might have to be curtailed. There is a sap. between demand and production of tires for airplanes, combat vehicles and other military uses, Dewey said, and "an even more severe" shortage of heavy-duty truck and bus tires. "Great efforts are being made to close these gaps to a point where only a minimum of essential transport might have to be curtailed," Dewey told a news conference. Production of · civilian tires is being held down deliberately to about 1,000,000 a month, of which only 750,000 are being rationed to the puljlic. The rest are going into a reserve for possible emergencies --such as another boost in heeds of the armed services.. Revised military demands, Dewey said, are primarily responsible for the present acute shortage. For civilian drivers, Eewey summed up the situation in these words: "Tight, but no sigh of disaster." The present lean tire rations will continue for the first 6 months of the year, he predicted, then will loosen up; they will- not become more stringent. Only 18,000,000 to 24,000,000 civilian passenger car tires will be available to drivers this year, he said, instead of the 30,000 000 previously held to be the minimum which had to be produced. As far as the other big civilian question mark is concerned--when is the stretch coming back into girdles?--Dewey said all bets were off on the use of neoprene the synthetic which elastic manufacturers were all ready to use. Manufacturers will have to get along with all-purpose Buna S, from which tires are made. "I'll be surprised if it doesn't turn out to be as good as neoprene," the rubber director said Assuring' against further delay for brassiere, girdle and suspender manufacturers,' Dewey promised that Buna S would not be taken away from them as neoprene was.

REVEAL BRITISH WERE TRAPPED Broke Out After U. S. Tank Destroyer Attack By HOMER BIGART · The Combined V. S. Press (Distributed'by United Press) With the Fifth Army In Italy, Feb. S-- (U.R)--It may now be revealed that a German counterattack on the night of Feb. 3 attained initial success and succeeded £or several hours in trapping thousands of British troops in "a salient that, then existed north of Aprilia. · | j Fortutubfr the enemy was able to fnUrpoM fewer than 1,- ·M troop* ' between the Isolated British spear bea4 and the main allied force. These troops were supported by 6 or 8 tiger tanks that appeared at dawn Feb.' 4 on a low ridge only a few hundred yards from a highway, the only possible route of escape. The remarkable work of Ara'er- can tank destroyers in knocking out 4 tiger* aided in restoring the situation. In fierce, confused fifihting, the British infantry not only broke the trap but took 300 prisoners. The bulk of the British force was extricated. Some equipmnel was lost. Until late Friday afternoon the situation remained very disturbing. Reserves were put on the alert, but the enemy's capture of high ground dominating the main highway prevented tanks from coming to the aid o£ the isolated force. A counter-attack, launched from the main allied line, narrowed the gap somewhat while British 25-pounders held off German reinforcements. The German attack started an hour before midnight Thursday. Every enemy run seemed trained on the long, thin salient where the British spearhead had halted 18 miles from Borne. The curious thing was that everybody expected it. From the beginning, the British had shoved far ahead of the main bridgehead line. Their initial thrust carried them to Campo Di Carno. A 2nd jump took them to Aprilia, where they crushed the first German counter-attack. Finally, in hard fighting they cut the main Railway line to Canipoleon and SOMETHING NEW PUMPERNICKEL ON SALE AT YOUR GROCER FRI. SAT.
