ACTION BY FRANCE
ON DEBT DESIRED

Funding Negotiations is
AS ARCTIC AVIATOR
Washington, D. C Lieutenant M.
A. Schur of Portland, Or., and Chief
Boatswain Earl Eber of San Diego,
Cal., were selected by the navy depart
ment to accompany Lieutenant-Commander
Richard E. Byrd of Winches
ter, Va., on the MacMillan arctic ex
ploration expedition this summer.
The three officers and three enlisted
men will comprise the flying personnel
of the expedition. Andrew N. Nold
of Nappanee, Ind., and Nels P. Soren
son of Menominee, Mich., chief ma

two of the enlisted men.
Lieutenant Schur was born at Myrtle

er debtors" had begun conversations
looking to a war debt fund settlement,
the view was expressed at the treas

she should also discuss settlement
terms with the United State3.
While it was made plain that this
government has no intention of ad
vising France formally of its attitude
that it should receive consideration
equal to that accorded another credi
tor nation by France, the view was ex- j
pressed with the knowledge that the

The expression remained unamplified
! except that it was described as iden-
tical with the position of Great Britain
I as voiced by Winston Churchill, chan
cellor of the exchequer, in the British
house of commons, December 10, when

Europe should plan a settlement with

HARVEY S. FIRESTONE more than two years
ago predicted a rubber shortage, and said the
British crude rubber restriction act would cost
the American people millions of dollars. The Rrit
isb colonial possessions in the Far East produce
about 80 per cent of the world's supply of rubber,
while American manufactures consume about 75
per cent of the world's supply.
Mr. Firestone has just returned to A!:roa, Ohio,
after making a survey of pnsslldllties of growing
rubher in Florida, where ho was accompanied by
rubber plantation experts. On one of the tours of
Florida he was accemiiied by Thomas A. Wdlson,
who made some important suggestions relative to
new methods of extracting the latex or sap from
rubber tries, plants and shrubs.
Rubbei trees growing on the E'r.on estate In
Fort Myers were exumined, tin well as those on the
Ford estate in Fort Myers and the Ford farm near
Labelle, Fla. A great deal of time was f" nt on
the Government's Experimental Farm n ar Cocoa
nut Grove, Flu., where many varieties of rubber
trees are being grown. Some of these appear to
be very promising.
"Rubber is of vital Importance to highway trans
portation," said Mr. Firestone, "and is largely re
sponsible for our business prosperity. Thi- British
restriction net now limits production and exporta
tion to one-half of normal production. Itul.ber to
day is about 200 per cent higher thun it was when
the restriction act went Into effect. Ruhher re
striction this year will cost American car owners
at least $100,000,000. and vjgJIkely $300,000,000.

Mr. Firestone was Instrumental In havln,Cou

investigation of new aources of rubber supply, and
he sent out several expeditions at his own expense
to isit rubber producing countries, Including th
Philippines, central America, Mexico and Africa,
