Were there not thousands of square miles of wild rubber trees in Brazil and elsewhere simply waiting to be tapped? Were not the marvell6us chemists'of Germany working diligently to devise a process" for making synthetic rubber at a fraction of the cost of the natural article? Britain, they averred, was wasting time and money. Six years ago the price of crude rubber jumped to a pound, because the or tons which seemed to be the limit of the forests fell far short of the enormously increasing the synthetic rubber promised by Germany failed to materialize. The tons produced by the British plantations in 1910 was more than welcomed, and trfe scoffing ceased. By 1914 the plantations were producing nearly 1001000 tons, or 60% of the world's supply, and the price had been reduced to one-third of the 1910 figures. This year the plantations are contributing of, the wtal Britain holds a monopoly which has- been of vital importance in the War.
