C. M. Dicus Gets
Patent On Wooden
(Continued from page one)
It was natural for Mr. Dicua
to turn to wood as a substitute,
as his daily life is taken up with
working with wood. He had creat
ed so many items out of pieces
of wood fashioned together: that he
felt confident that in wood could
be found at least one answer to
the tire problem.
Mr. Dicus has had a wide ex
perience in wood products. His
company has filled individual or
ders as large as 40,000 boxes for
one of the leading stationers of
this country. He has designed
and made boxes for candy firms
as a Mother's Day special.
He has designed unusual trays
and coasters that have sold on
the markets in lots of thousands.
He has created dozens of new ar
ticles that had not been made in
wood before he conceived the idea.
But not until the tire shortage
did he think of putting wood on
wheels. When rumors began to cir
culate that rubber would be one
of the products affected by the
war, the idea of a substitute tire
began to take hold in his mind.
He figured it all out on paper, but,
as is often the case, as it develop
ed in actuality some features Were
discarded. Now he feels that he
has the pattern for a product in
the making that will prove prac
tical.. . .
When interviewed, Mr. Dicus
was somewhat reluctant to release
the story of his tire substitute
which has been patented, as he
stated that he was not yet ready
to go into production and did not
wish to create demands for the
tire before the company had ex
panded and was ready to take
care of orders.
Mr. Dicus was,,also emphatic re
garding the fact that he makes
no claims for the tire as a replace
ment of rubber permanently, but
only as a substitute in, an emer
gency. For the latter, he feels con
fident it will give reasonable ser
vice at a moderate price, until
such time that rubber again is
permitted on the market.
Mr. Dicus seemed optimistic,
however, about the time when ex
pansion of the company and pro
curement of all necessary materials
in volume would allow the tires to
be placed pn the market.
The only metal parts in the tire
consist of 15 feet of one-fourth
inch wire cable, two small turn
buckles, two small cable clamps,
and one one-half inch by three
and one-half inch bolt.
The tire itself consists of 34
wedge shaped blocks of wood. The
bottoms are shaped to fit the rim
of the automobile wheels. The
blocks have an auger hole on each
side, well down below the wearing
surfaces of the block and lace on
the two cables. The rim of the
tire is drilled, permitting the cable
to loop through from the bottom
of the rims, which creates station
ary ends for the two cables. The
cables then are laced through the
blocks and return back through the
rims and fasten to a turn buckle
by each side.
The tension of the cable is cre
ated by a simple turn of the turn
buckle. The wedge shape of the
perfectly . designed blocks creates
a solidity when tension is placed
on the cables. A composition of
asphalt damp proof is used to cre
ate a coating between each block,
which not only makes them mois
ture proof, but acts as a cement,
sealing minute cracks, and as a
cushion for preventing noise as
well as giving the tire a black coat
The foregoing is a description of
the basic tire and the principle of
tie patent applied for, but the
other and added equally important
features are in the tread itself,
which is separate. While the tire
can be used as is, with no tread,
getting maximum wear, the added
tread can be used, making the
tire more or less permanent.
The treads consist of eight sec
tional pieces that fit on to the top
of the tire with screws, allowing
the tread to wear down to the top
of the screws, after which the
tread may be removed and replaced
by any filling station operator
possessing a screw driver.
Fattened To Rim
Mr. Dicus said that his patent
broadens out and allows him to
use either wood or a spiral cable.
The cable would likewise be fasten
ed to the rim from each end and
tightened by the turn buckle. The
cable would have a continuous
wrap of several plys, creating a
solid cushion over the wood to act
as a tread. When becoming worn
or worn out, it could be removed
and replacements made within a
few minutes, it is claimed.
As to the commercial handling of
the tire, Mr. Dicus feels that if
the tire should prove thoroughly
successful, as he is hoping, and is
shown to give sufficient road wear
to justify service, that agents will
be installed in each town withia
a few miles distance to give this
particular service. '
The agents would sell the tires
and also the treads, giving service
similar to that which is being of
fered by other tire concerns. The
method of putting on the retreads
will be a very simple matter, ac
cording to Mr. Dicus, and can be
done by a filling station operator
