New Republic;11/2/42, Vol. 107 Issue 18, p580
Presents several letters to the editor about the book "Rationed Rubber and What to Do About It," by Ernst A. Hauser and William Haynes. Opinion of reviewer Robert M. Hunter that many facts have been misrepresented in the book; Charges made by Hunter that the efforts of Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey officials to prevent a representative of the navy from gaining desired information with regard to the butyl-rubber process is adequately disclosed in the Truman Committee's report; Accusation of authors for perpetrating the false assumption that synthetic rubber cannot be produced at a price competitive with natural rubber; Reference to I.G. buna patents in the book.
