Louis TRUCK DRIVERS GIVEN WARNING 28 Tires, 17 Tubes Rationed by Board CLEAR LAKE--In spite of repeated warnings many truck operators continue to overload their truck tires, H. E. Teachout, state rationing officer, reported to rationing board 17-2 Friday. Inspection reports from the highway commission show some cases of a tire load per axle of more than 120 per cent of the rated capacity, Mr. Teachout points out. This is a serious abuse of tires and a waste of rubber as well as a violation of section 901 of the tire regulations, he says. Mr. Teachout advised the board that it may refuse tire certificates to an applicant who has abused his tires and may declare him ineligible to receive a certificate for such period as it deems appropriate in the public interest. * * * In the case of a first offense the board may use its own judgment with regard to withholding the certificate, Mr. Teachout states. In some instances a discussion of the situation is all that is needed. Continued abuse, however, should not be condoned, the state officer stated. When reports ot abuse are received from the highway commission the state rationing officer writes the truck operator a letter advising him of the violation and suggesting that he contact the local board at once. At the same time a copy of the letter and of the overload report is sent the local board. * * * The report of rationing board 17-2 for the Jan. 1 to 9 period shows that two grade 2 tires were allowed Melvin O. Munsinger, Clear Lake. Grade 3 tires were approved as follows: Jake Kramer and James Siskow, Thornton, I each: Robert Zobel, Harold Hanna, and H. E. Freeman, Clear Lake, 2 each; L. B.
