Murphy Co. schedules. During recent months, Mr, Rice declared, the need of water dispersions of reclaim rubber has become vitally important for the coating of rayon and cotton cord fabrics used in heavy, duty military and truck tires made from synthetic rubber. The Naugatuck Chemical plant is the leading supplier. Mr. Rice stated of water dispersion re-claim in the country and is expanding operations as rapidly as possible for this purpose. [ The development of water dispersions, Mr. Rice pointed out will call for substantially greater reclaim rubber, as time goes on. The local factory head indicated definitely that any statement to the effect that re-claim rubber was not needed, that the salvage of old tires was not necessary or that rubber was rotting away in storage, is entirely unfounded and is a gross mis-representation of facts. Mr. Rice pointed out that reclaim rubber in relation to the production of rubber articles occupies a similar position as that of scrap iron to steel, one is a definite component of the finished product of the other, from the angle of cost, ease of manufacture and general effectiveness. In closing the interview today Mr. Rice pointed out that rubber was being re-claimed here in .Van gat tick when its market price was much higher than that of crude rubber on the international market, so necessary was the reclaim to the effective manufaeture of uven natural rubber goods. Shortly .after . 5 o'clock this morning, the indicator on the thermometer outside the News olllcc touched the Ilfty, mark, which fact caused Red Hermans to remark thut it must've been cold this morning "I didn't mind," the redhead added, "for I had a couple of U. S. Army blankets on top of me. Those things are pretty warm, you know." We said we didn't know.
