'The Forgotten
To Be Featured


Prof. Harley H. Bartlett, chairman
of the botany department, came out
strongly in favor of continued devel-
opment of natural rubber sources in
the Americas despite the "outrageous
ballyhoo of the synthetic rubber in-
terests" in a recent address before an
assembly of the School of Forestry.
He pointed out that the House of
Representatives has already passed
legislation which, if concurred in by
the Senate, will sound the death-
knell of work that has been going on
for two years to produce natural rub-
ber from guayule.
Traveled in Latin America
Professor Bartlett has traveled
extensively in Latin America in the
interest of the development of nat-
ural rubber and has been on leave
from the University as principal bot-
anist in rubber plant investgations
for the United States Department of
"Those favoring this new legisla-
tion must be willing to gamble a
quick end to the war and the imme-
diate availability of rubber from the
Far Eastern plantations after the
war," he said. "This is an extremely
dangerous gamble."
Natural Rubber Still Needed
Charging the synthetic rubber in-
dustry with misleading the public
and Congress by letting advertising
run ahead of performance, Professor'
Bartlett claimed natural rubber is
still needed in part for serviceable

heavy-duty tires and is highly desr-
able for light tires.
He said that synthetic rubber can-
not compare with natural rubber in
actual performance, and that, to be
on the safe side, the domestic sources
of natural rubber must continue to
be developed.
"Only when the synthetic industry
has really entered upon quantity pro-
duction of a general utility rubber,
can we afford to relax our efforts to
get natural rubber. Otherwise, we
would. endanger the success of the
war effort," Professor Bartlett said.

with the U.S. Gypsum Co. in 1902, he
rapidly worked to the top and became
the president in 1905.
Avery was listed in a 1930 "Law
Bulletin" as one of the 250 leading
businessmen of the nation called to
Washington, D.C., by President Hoo-
ver to "assess the business situation
and guard against a psychological
business slump to result from the
stock markets crash last fall."
In 1931 he became president ofI
Wards. During the depression years
the company had an outstanding rec-
ord in losing money-an eight million
dollar deficit. Last year the net in-
come was over 20 million dollars.
Avery has been described as a man
who knows his own mind and one
who sticks to decisions. After fight-
ing with stockholders over his salary
and with executives over company
policies he has, in the past, always
