BECAUSE of the time required to disconnect the semi-trailer from the tractor, and the source of danger in carrying a heavily laden _ disconnected semi-trailer on a ship, the Ulster Transport Authority this week allowed Thomas Allen, Ltd., 58 Hermitage Wall, London, El, to -deliver a 14-ton load from Droitwich, to Donaghadee, County Down.

The vehicle, a Scammell eight-wheeled articulated outfit carrying 3,100 gal. of liquid latex, travelled, across the PrestonLarne ferry on .Tuesday night to deliyer its load at Cyril Lord's carpet factory by midday on Wednesday. The latex was for a new carpet-backing process, and the delivery represented a trial run to discover the effectiveness of the method of transport.

The load was picked up from the Witco Chemical Co., Ltd.. and it is hoped that

regular deliveries may be made. The Scum-nen was due to return on the Wednesday night ferry.
