Today we admit frankly that, willy-nilly, «e must rehearse our defense—and with both army and navy. <•• NO. 1 OUTPOST iv rv«Hn IS If mm scheme Jnlo effect, eoimoiis were issued which cnlllle the bearer to »"y so many gallons of gasoline A woman inctorht, called at \\ Worcester gamac and t'ol three gallons, she gnvc (he auentlaiit -no appropriate coupons and prepared to drive off when the man reminded her ij )!l( .
