·TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1943 ! BRIGHTER TIRE OUTLOOK GIVEN Jeffers Sees Only One ' Troubled Year for Cars - NEW YORK--A promise that it car owners will co-operate there is only one year of trouble ahead lor American motorists was made Tuesday by William F. Jeffers, rubber director of the war production board, in a signed article in the American Magazine in which he analyzes the tire situation iu detail. "Already we arc giving retreads to civilians," he writes, "for essential driving. As production of synthetic rubber increases in 1943 and the fruits of our rubber savings mature, we will be able to increase retreading. If all goes well, in 1944 there will be new tires and retreads lor almost everybody, and our passenger cars and trucks will be so well shod and the production of synthetic will be so great that tire rationing will exist only to the extent necessary to prevent waste." * * * Charging that if "selfish interests and misinformed person!;" who opposed rationing had had their way the country's trans- ·portalion system would have broken down within six months, lUr. Jeffers stated, that the nazis understood the situation and "spread propaganda far and wide in an effort to convince Americans that rubber rationing wasn't necessary." * * * "It would have been a tremendous axis'victory if they could have looled. enough Americans," he added. Regarding the synthetic rubber situation, Mr. Jeffers reports: --In two or three weeks the first butadiene plant, at Institute, W. Va.. will be opened. It will produce at the rate of 20,000 tons a year from grain alcohol and will be the first unit of an 80,000 Ion plant. ---At about the same time a butadiene plant will be opened in Baton Rouge, La., calculated to produce at the rate of 15,000 tons a year, from petroleum. * --Before July 4 there will be other butadiene plants in operation in Los Angeles. Charleston, "W. Va,; Baytown. Texas:-FiUs- Tjurgh, Sarnia, C a n a d a ; Port Neches. Texas; Borger, Texas; Toledo, Ohio; and Louisville. Ky. Plants will be building in Houston, Texas, and Lake Charles, La. --All told, these plants, when they are going at full capacity, ·will produce at the rale of 800,000 tons of synthetic rubber a year. They'll all be in operation--and other new plants will be building --by November 1. * * * In conclusion Mr. Jeficrs :re- ports: , "We are in an-uncomfortable spot but if we have the complete co-operation of American car owners, there's only one year of real trouble ahead. If Americans drive slowly, use only the amount of mileage that is necessary in their work, share their rides, take care of their tires, we'll ,comc out or this era of rubber rationing on the bounce."

Admiral William ·". Halsey disclosed Tuesday. The commander of the south Pacific force said that 17 at those rescued were white women known to have been in imminent danger of ill treatment and death. Three were children. * * * The operation involved the de- aching of a fleet submarine from he task of sinking Japanese hipping and sending her to shal- ow waters to effect the evacua- ion. The daring coup was accomplished under the very noses of he Japs. Information was received late in December that a party of mis- ionarles. who had not been eva- uatcd prior to enemy occupa- ion of the Solomons last spring, vas in danger ot capture by a aiding force of several hundred apanese. The missionaries had icard ot the presence of white vomen on the island * * * The task of rescuine the group became a race against lime. Just before New Year's day information was received that the Japanese planned to send a strong- detachment to capture the missionaries after- two enemy onsets had sent the whites scurry- ine into the brush for safety * * * Only two methods of effecting :he rescue were feasible--either by air or submarine. The underwater craft was chosen. Messages were dispatched to :his craft, which was unable to reply lest it give away its position. Thus progress of the daring plan to evacuate those endangered would not be determined. It is known now. however, that the submarine commander received and carried out the order-* * * * The submarine reached the rendezvous exactly on schedule. It stood close to shore, and took the refugees aboard at night atter replying to a pre-designated signal. Originally it had been planned to make a second attempt the following- night if Ihe initial (ry was unsuccessful. * * * As it turned out that would have been tragic, for the morning after the fleeing party was placed aboard the sub a large number of Japs landed. Forty-eight hours after the sub marine slipped away from the scene the commander's first laconic announcement of success was received. A day later the group was transferred to an American patrol vessel in friendly waters nr"i was immediately taken to Australia. . ^ The names and addresses of those rescued are not known at this time.

(.$)--A group of influential legislators was reported Tuesday to have decided on a last-minute plea to Presidenl Roosevelt to omit social security revision from his legislative program. Their decision, made known by h i t h-ranking democrats, came amid pleas for harmony and final arrangements for organization of the 78th congress which convenes Wednesday at noon. Authoritative spokesmen saic earlier suggestions to the president that the controversial socia security subject Be sidetracket for the duration had been rejected. "I sincerely hope it will be let out of the president's program a least for the time being," said oni. member of the group, who preferred not to be named. "It is bound to touch off a fight that believe is needless and may hai unfortunate results." Others expressed a conviction the new congress would deal onlj with essential war legislation am would refuse to handle domcsti measures. Leaders of both parties in the house asretd that on matters directly related to the war. there would be no legislative difficulties. Vice President Wallace, in an effort to bring about a smootl working relationship in the sen ate, was reported planning to ask the leaders from both sides of tin aisle to meet with, him soon fo n discussion of the problems like ly to arise. Friends said such a gathering, would be designed to strengthen the friendly relations which hav existed in the past between dem ocratic leader Barklcy of Ken tucky and republican leader Me Nary of Oregon and their aides HEADS PAROLE BOARD ST.

Allies Pledge to Restore Rights in Axis-Held Areas Allied Declaration SEEK FACTS ON OIL CONTROL Investigators Will Renew Public Hearings WASHINGTON, (ff)--Senatorial investigators said Tuesday they would seek further light on the divided federal control over gasoline and fuel oil rationing in an effort to assure the minimum supply needed by civilians. Chairman Maloncy (D., Conn.) of a special senate committee announced renewed public hearings will be resumed next Monday after those in charge of the ration- in" told the committee Monday that no hope could be held out for an increase in rations lor some months to come. Senator Burton (R., Ohio) told reporters that while Monday's testimony indicated that some progress had been made .toward simplifying · the regulations, he thought a more unified control was needed. As it now stands, the head man with regard to oil supplies is Petroleum Administrator Harold L. Ickes. Most o£ the civilian rationing is under the office of price administration. Motor fuel for farm trucks and -commercial vehicles, however, is allotted by the office of defense transportation. Then there are the Icnd-lease requirements of the other united nations, which Price Administrator Leon Henderson indicated were negotiated by the state department. The army End navy determine their own requirements. Strong Man Falls ALTA Statom. LOMA, 17.

S. State Department WASHINGTON, (/PJ--Seventeen allied belligerent governments and the French national committee served notice on the axis and its beneficiaries Tuesday that property rights in countries now occupied by (hem will be restored to their rightful owners when the axis is ejected. In a declaration made public by the TJ. S. state department the signatories emphasized they had reference to all property rights or interests which have changed hands through enemy action "whether such transfers or dealings have taken the form of open looting or plunder or of transactions apparently legal in form." The declaration applies even 1o such transfers of property which "purport to be voluntarily effected," such as the disposal of homes, businesses or owners were whose securities terrorized into signing them away. The declaration does not specifically mention properties previously owned by Jews in Germany or other countries and now held by non-Jews who took them over at panic prices when Jews were forced out of business or expelled. Officials e m p h a s i z e d , however, that it applies to "property, rights.and interests of any description whatsoever" lost by individuals, corporations or governments through enemy action or manipulation. In effect it warns all persons in axis-occupied countries that any property rights they may acquire under the protection of axis occupation authorities or puppet governments will not be recognized when the axis is expelled. The phrase "and in particular to persons in neutral countries" is included and has the effect of warning persons in such countries against the purchase of securities and other wealth which'may have Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. SHIP TRIED TO RAM SUBMARINE But British Merchant Boat Was Sent Down By The Associated Press A British merchantman, which tried to ram an attacking submarine in the Atlantic ocean off the northern coast of South America, was out-maneuvered and sunk, the navy disclosed Monday. The sinking raised to 582 the Associated Press total of announced United Nations and neutral ship losses in the western Atlantic since Pearl Harbor. Ten crewmen of the British vessel were killed in the September attack when a torpedo exploded in tlie engine room after the faster U-boat circled out of the way of the ship. Seventy-three other members of' the crew were saved. Arriving at an east coast port, they said the submarine surfaced after the torpedo struck home, and finished the ship with shellfire. Navy announcement last week of the sinking by submarines of nine more merchant ships in the south Atlantic was the heaviest announced seven-day toll in more than a month. No sinkings in other western Atlantic areas were listed, emphasizing the problem faced by shipping in the waters off South America. 8 PERSONS ARE DEAD IN BLAZE Report Match Tossed Into Pail of Gasoline MASSENA, N.
