Essential Workers Have Most
WASHINGTON, D.C.—William M. Jeffers, rubber director for the War Production Board (WPB) stated today that more tires will reach the hands of civilians next year. Jeffers said many of the tired produced in 1943 have already reached essential workers, such as war workers, and others who hold B and C gasoline ration coupons. Jeffers also caution that the bulk of the current rubber stockpile consists of tires already in use, urging “…every recappable tire should be recapped as many times as possible before a new tire is issued by the ration board.” He went on to describe a large expansion program by the rubber industry to increase production.
