Ross Bell of the Children Saw Iirm of Williams and Bell Thursday authorized The Morning Avalanche to announce his candidacy lor chief justice of the court of civil appeals for the seventh supreme judicial district of Texas subject to the Democratic primaries. The district is comprised of 46 counties of northwest Texas, covering the Panhandle and several South Plains counties, including Luobock, and from Wilbarger county east to the New Mexico state line. Formerly Beil was district attorney for the 50th judicial district. "I shall try to see as many of the voters as possible in the coming months," he promised.

Tires May Be Of Wood Or Milk Weeds By JOSEPH L, MYLEH United Press Staff Writer WASHINGTON, March 26. — Before this war is over you may be clumping to work on v/ooden- block tires. It's not inconceivable, on the other hand, that you may find yourself rolling along on tires made from milk weeds, dandelions or rabbit bush. More probably synthetic rubber p ants, built or builcjing, will supply the answer with casings and nnertuoes made of coal, crude oil and air. Problem For Experts The rubber shorrage, insofar as it is due to lack of synthetic substitutes, appears to be a problem for production experts to solve a commerce department spoksman said today. "We already have several darn good formulas for synthetic rubber, he said, "but not enough specialized plant equipment to put them to work on a big scale The government is spending a lot ol money right now for plant fa cilitics with which we hope even For The Avolariche-Journeii Office* your aafap Sto A complete ntw shipment of Easter stockings in lovely sheer quality. . .the-very ultimate in flattery for the Easter Pcrcde. . .complete sizes just now in all your favorite brands. .. featuring two new numbers. . . 2 or 3 THREAD, pair ', 35 2 or 3 THREAD, pair.

That's caution No. 1, in Dr. Sara Stinehfield Hawk's advice to girls contemplating marriage to soldiers. Dr. Hawk gave it, and. these other suggestions, in a course on problems of the war bride at University O f Southern California: Girls should avoid taking a nuble sacrifice attitude in marrying a service man in wartime. It's best to know a man for • more years than the time he has worn a uniform. Your chances of marrying are less likely if you're a widow than if you're single. Few men want to support someone else's children, the heyday of the buggy and surrey. Their efforts were rot entirely suspended when' th». automobile came along and have recently been stepped up. .

But "eventually" is not "now" and all over the country inventors and research scientists are busily thinking up ideas for (1) conserving tires, <2> making them out of something besides rubber, and <3) eliminating tires altogether —say with wooden-block wheels Industrialists Experiment Industrialists have been experimenting with- dozens of potential crude rubber sources which mi«ht oe exploited domestically. Many home-grown flowers, tree's weed' and shrubs have been recommended as substitutes for the rubber plant. They include: Milk vcecl pomsettias, sunflowers, o s a g e oranges taluias hedge apples), dandelions (especially the variety known as "koksagyz"), fig trees, and the so-called rabbit bush a perennial shrub which ' flourishes m the southwest. , T ? OI " er K'kinton of Salisbury, Md., has even created a kind of rubber out of a "secret weed" plucked near the seashore and cooked with chemicals on his farm kitchen range. He told the inventors council he could produce rub- oer for 15 cents a pound.
