Scout Troops
Begin Rubber
Drive Here

No Profiteering Allowed
. On Scrap Collection,
Official Points Out
Ann Arbor Boy Scouts were yes-
terday enlisted in an all-out effort
to speed collections of precious scrap
rubber from every possible source.
The Scouts began a house-to-house
canvass for the old rubber to insure
the collection of rubber from sources
unable to turn it in through regular
channels. Immediate pickup service
may be had by calling Scout Head-
A final damper on fears that gas
stations or oil companies would ob-
tain a profit on the collection of the
scrap was placed yesterday by Robert
I. Bartlett, Detroit War Production
Board, who was in town to attend a
meeting of the city and county cam-
paign heads. All scrap rubber be-
comes government property when it
is added to the growing piles and
any profiteering will be severely
prosecuted, he pointed out.
The rubber collected by the oil
company agents will be sold to the
Rubber Reserve Company. Any prof-
its resulting from donations of scrap
or gain in handling costs will be
turned over' to the USO, the Red
Cross and the Army and Navy Re-
lief Funds.
Bartlett emphasized the vital need
of rubber to the war effort and he
pointed out that the scrap rubber
means something to the war effort
in addition to help the census) of
£, America's scap supply.
In Lansing Lieut. -Col. Harold A.
Furlong, State Defense Adminis-
trator, reported yesterday that the
scrp rubber collection was "moving
speedly."' He remarked that citi-
zens would "take it in stride, feeling
that it is so much better organized
than the aluminum collection."
Meanwhile, the Associated Press
reported, the piles of scrap rubber at
corner gas stations were growing
steadily as citizens turned in thou-
sands of pounds of everything from
boots to rubber heels.

Short Strike At Aluminum Plant
In Detroit Cancels Heroes' Visit

DETROIT, June 17 -{P)-A short-
lived strike at the plant of the Alum-
inum Co of America here today
forced cancellatiori of a program
honoring visiting British and Ameri-
can war heroes.
Five of the heroes were to have
visited the plant which works on war
production; then workers were to
have gathered about a platform to
hear brief speeches congratulating
them on their production efforts.
However, the plant was closed af-
ter the eiployes quit work at 8 p.m.
Tuesday, and the flag-decorated
platform remained empty today.
At the urging of leaders of the
Aluminum Workers of America
(CIO), a state labor conciliator and
an army air corps procurement offi-
cer, the strikers voted this afternoon
to return to work, and production
was resumed at 4 p.m. The plant
employs 2,300 men.
Meanwhile, negotiators continued
efforts to settle small strikes in the
Acme Chair Co plant at Reading,
Mich.; the Ampco Twist Drill Com-
pany at Jackson, and the Central
Specialties Company at Ypsilanti.
The Alcoa strikers said they were
protesting "against the refusal of
the company to negotiate a new
Plant Superintendent H. B. Upde-
graff in a statement said that that
"so far as the company knows, the
present work stoppage is due to dis-
satisfaction on the part of a few

employes with a job evaluation pro-
gram which was completed ahead of
schedule by the company."
Those who urged the men to re-
turn to work this afternoon included
CIO union officials; Lieut.-Col. Geo.
Strong of the Air Corps Procurement
Division, and Victor G. Swearingen
of the State Labor Mediation Board.
A company spokesman said ap-
proximately X300 of 700 normally em-
ployed on the 4 p.m. shift were at
work, and that normal operations
were expected on the midnight shift.
He said union officials would meet
tomorrow at Pittsburgh with Alcoa
officials and representatives of the
War Production Board to seek a so-
lution of the dispute.
In Ypsilanti UAW-CIO leaders sat
down with officials of the Central
Specialties Co in an effort to settle
a dispute that the company claims
concerns vacation pay. Approxi-
mately 400 persons are employed at
the plant, and only a few who are
working on a war order were at
their jobs today.
A "membership drive" was cited
by a local UAW-CIO union as the
cause of a walkout today that froze
production at the Acme Chair Co.
plant in Reading, Mich.
