I understand everything in this Soviet era propaganda poster except the word at the bottom: резинотрест

Can anyone explain?

    The text is written using «шершавый язык плаката», namely, by a great Soviet poet В.В.Маяковский.
    As to Резинотрест, this is a historical abbreviation of «Государственный трест резиновой промышленности», renamed in 1923 году from «Главрезина», which is, in its turn, an abbreviation of Directorate General of the State(-owned) Rubber Industry Plants reporting to the USSR Supreme Board of the National Economy (ВСНХ).
