Wooden Tires Manufactured By Dicus
Creating Much Interest Over Nation
C M. Dicus, who has been work
ing sometime on a wooden tire
that will meet the emergency
brought about by the rationing of
tires and rubber, has announced
the creation of a new wooden truck
and automobile tire, new both in
principle and design.
Mr. Dicus, owner of the Wood
Arts Company, has been building
tires for the past several months.
He claims to have recently develop
ed something superior to any tire
that he has yet worked on and
states that he believes it to be the
very best to be had in this field
The War Production Board has
asked that the tires be sent imme
diately to the district offices in
Raleigh and Atlanta for display.
Harvey Firestone, of the Firestone
Tire and Rubber Company, saw
one of the early creations by Mr.
Dicus and stated that if he could
get a satisfactory tire and needed
factory building space, that a
large part of his tire factory could
be converted over to this purpose.
The following business firms
have been using the tires made
by Mr. Dicus in the routine opera
tion of their work: the Champion
Paper and . Fibre Company, of
Canton, Hamilton, Ohio, and Hous
ton, Texas ; Biltmore Dairy Farms,
