Way back when, during the first
New Deal, the United States was
taken off the gold standard, con
gressional leaders thought no
single commodity would ever be
come such a subject of con
troversy and take up so much
space in the newspapers as that
glittering metal. Now, during the
first half of the year of our en
trance into the war, the publicity
surrounding certain strategic ma
terials makes gold seem like a
ham actor with an inferior press
Perhaps the most worried man
over the rubber situation in the
Tar Heel group is Representative
Carl T. Durham, of Chapel Hill,
a member of the Military Affairs
subcommittee which has been in
vestigating all sorts of strategic
materials over a year and a half.
"Doc" Durham, as he was called
by half the population of Chapel
Hill when he managed a leading
drug store there, has talked and
warned and worried about rubber
for months. Having an excellent
background of laboratory knowl
edge underwritten by his phar
maceutical activities, "Doc" pre
dicted early this year that it would
be impossible to manufacture
enough synthetic rubber to fill
civilian and military demands be
cause there was an additional
shortage of tempered steel which
must be used in the construction of
synthetic rubber manufacturing
plants, because of its chemical ac
tion. After explaining just how this
action takes place a discourse we
could not follow too well, having
had no chemistry in our lives since
being exposed for a year in high
school to a course in General Sci
ence Mr. Durham summed up the
whole situation in one sentence.
"We are, so short of so many
strategeic materials including raw
materials, metals and chemicals
that one shortage leads to another
and bottlenecks the entire synthetic
This being translated into our
own lives means a definite tire
shortage, as well as a lack of rub
ber all the way down the linee.
That's one reason why Mr. Dur
ham has always advocated nation
al gasoline rationing it will cut
down on the use of rubber even
in communities where oil runs
more freely than water.
Representative Robert L. Dough
ton has commended the work of
Bernard Baruch In investigating
the rubber situation.
"Mr. Baruch and his colleagues
have the confidence of the people,"
Mr. Doughton said. "They have
ended the scores of conflicting
statement regarding the rubber
situation that have plagued us
congressmen from time to time."

ago, it was learned today on re
liable authority. The resignation
is reported to have been accepted.
No successor . has been named
thus far. Edward Pauley, of
California, secretary of the com
mittee, is acting treasurer, and
Miss Mae Oliver of Sanford and
Raleigh, secretary to Mr. Rey
nolds at the committee, continues
as assistant treasurer.
The mayor resigned as treasur
er, it was learned, because he felt
it would not be right to hold a
strictly political position while he
was in the nation's armed forces.
He was commissioned a lieutenant
senior grade in the navy late in
the spring, spent eight weeks in
basic training for the naval air
corps at Quonset and then was
promoted into the intelligence
school, one of a class of 100 se
lected for the honor.
When the mayor entered the
navy, the national committee an
nounced he was taking a leave of
absence. It is possible the post
may be open and waiting for him

Tobacco again took the front

Leon Henderson has promised to
issue a permanent regulation al

prices for better grades of tobacco
in the North Carolina and Virginia
Old Belts this season.
Senator Josiah W. Bailey dis
closed that Henderson ,''does not
say that he fixed the ceiling in
order to prevent price inflation,

observe the CCC closely and if nec-

the Senator continued. "He also
says that there will be a permanent
regulation providing additional
flexibility with a view to permit

to bid higher prices for the North
Carolina and Virginia Old Belt
grades of the higher type."

Shoes are more important during this war time than ever before. We have been a nation of
sitter-downers and are going to be forced to stand and walk on our feet as never before.
The shoes we now have on our shelves and many yet to come in, are still the same high quality
we have enjoyed before we were actively engaged in the war. However, we feel it not more
than fair that you should be acquainted with the changes that are inevitable in the future.
In the future your shoes will not be as good and will not wear as long as they did before "Pearl
Harbor." ALL first grade sole leather is reserved for the government. You can't help it we
can't help it, and the factory can't help it. J( - -
